Building terrace, pictures added as it happens

We’ve decided to add a ground-level terrace out of cobblestones that will start at the front of the house, include a walkway that will traverse the side and end at the back of the house with gathering areas on both sides, and a staircase up to the door located in the music salon where the piano and harmonium are located.  I’ll be adding photos each day as the terrace gets built.  That means that the progress is shown real time.

Northern Europe road trip, Summer 2009

Here is a photo album of our recent roadtrip through Northern Europe in a 1974 Volkswagen Beetle [about the car].  We drove through Germany, first on side roads, and then on the Autobahn, stopping overnight in Bremen before continuing to The Hague.  We spent 4 days in The Hague and the nearby cities of Delft and Scheveningen.  We then continued to Amsterdam where we spent two days and then drove up north through the seaside town of Uithuizermeeden near Groningen where we stayed in a Bed and Breakfast out on a farm.

This album focuses on people, architecture, nature, and oddities – among other things. There is also a heavy favoring of mechanical and non-mechanical musical instruments both original and new.  Clicking the link below will open a Facebook page where you will not need to log in or be a member.

Viagra spam sent as cool mosaic: wonder ensues.

I can’t believe the unfailing creativity of spammers. I got a spam today for Viagra. You know how sometimes they change the spelling to evade spam filters? Spellings such as Via-gra or Viaagra are meant to get through a spam filter that your email has in which you tell it to trash any emails having to do with Viagra. Well I found one creative attempt in my inbox today, in which “Viagra” was spelled out using a colorful mosaic. Needless to say, I was impressed, and my day was instantly made.
