Proof That Republicans Don't Do the Technology Thing Well


As Photoshop goes, this is the worst of all worlds. What an absolute piece of shit.

Republicans don't do technology. They just let the intern with the least amount of grease on his chin give it a try and, an hour later, what you see is what you get.

I mean, how hard is it to do a decent job of photoshopping something? And it turns out like this?

Wow.

Snow




This was not Snowmageddon. This was a lot of snow that fell on us and inconvenienced us but not much more than that.

What you're looking at is a picture snapped while on a long walk. It clearly shows that the second round--the five and a half inches--that fell after we got fourteen inches fell so hard and so fast that it overwhelmed the trees. Lots of them lost branches last night. The forest has been culled.

More on the way? So what. A week from today, they tell me it will be sixty-one degrees.

Geese on Wilde Lake




This is for a whole slew of new readers coming to the site from HoCo Blogs. Thank you!

Shot today, and shot with a simple digital camera. Some enhancing done on the mac, nothing special.

Today was the most gorgeous day of the year and I had to shoot something.

We Have Plenty of Nuts




Noted:

“The last thing you want at a rally critical of the president is for some nut to be waving a confederate flag. Embracing the confederacy is bad history and bad politics.”

How about a nut who stands in front of the White House without a care in the world?

Heidelberg




The U.S. military has seen fit to close the facility in Heidelberg, Germany. In reality, this means that there will be fewer Americans living and working in the Mannheim and Heidelberg areas. If you spent any time in Germany during the Cold War, this may come as a bit of a shock. If not, oh well.

My memories of these places are positive; the PX and the Food Court on Heidelberg were wonderfully retro in that they weren't "modernized" and ruined. They allowed you a glimpse of what was, and not what will be, which is nothing.

I agree with closing these bases and reducing our footprint overseas. But the closure of Heidelberg cuts to the bone.
