Printed on matte paper this one actually looks
muted and very much like a painting.

Vendor in Pike place market

Woman on park bench just north of Pike Place Market
Ask me not where she got the chicken from, she was
busy screaming at people then from nowhere she produces
k-fry here and starts using him as a yo-yo with the leash
around it's leg.

Methinks it was one bewildered chicken wondering what the hell.

Saint Pete's Basilica

My latest audio book

It was the splendor and the scandal of the age. In 1506, the ferociously ambitious Renaissance Pope Julius II tore down the most sacred shrine in Europe, the millennium-old St. Peter's Basilica built by the Emperor Constantine over the apostle's grave, to build a better basilica. Construction of the new St. Peter's spanned two centuries, embroiled 27 popes, and consumed the genius of the greatest artists of the age: Michaelangelo, Bramante, Raphael, and Bernini. The cost of building the new cathedral was costly in more than just monetary terms; the new basilica provoked the Protestant Reformation, dividing the Christian world for all time. In this swift, colorful narrative, R.A. Scotti brings to life the artists and the popes, the politics and the passions behind this audacious enterprise. Scotti turns sacred architecture into a spellbinding human epic of enormous daring, petty jealousy, and staggering genius.

very interesting indeed

here is the site for the basilica

Kato, 16 years old and blind as a bat

I have a cricket

So the one thing about living in basement suites is you get bugs, fact of life deal with it. So I crawl out of bed and hobble my way to the shower.

There is a cricket in the tub.

Now depending on how I feel and what type of creepy crawly it is I will catch it and release it out side or send it to what ever god bugs worship with hot water from the shower head.

So I save this cricket, kick it out of the tub and figure i will find it after my shower and throw it out side.

Cannot find it even though it chirps continuously, my bathroom is not that big and i cannot find it.

Three days later I find it in the tub again and what do I do, same thing and no I cannot find it again.

Now sometime in the night the little bastard has moved from the bathroom to the kitchen and it is contentedly chirping away behind me somewhere as I write this.

That is my good deed for the year, I let the cricket live, just wish it was a little more melodic in it's chirping, because this cricket is loud.
