The antidote for a wicked bad week.
Haiku for the right side of the brain:
Jazz and dark porter,
Thursday night, Luna Sessions,
Eases the spoilt week.
Tonight’s quartet: hot and smooth.
Swinging sax and nimble bass.

I ain’t gonna tell this happy lamb about his fate.
Considering what’s in store for this critter, maybe he’s actually running away.
A soon-to-be not so happy lamb?

It applies to birds and the weather.
Love the roost these birds took to get in from today’s rain.

In the heart of The People’s Republik of Cambridge stands a shady organization whose leftist propaganda is threatening our 1950s ‘Merican Way of Life! They’re backing some bearded, socialist nut-job from a few millenia ago who said outrageous stuff like, “Love one another”.
We stand with our Muslim & Jewish neighbors
Remembering those who feel forgotten
Trans lives are beautiful
Many languages and nationalities make us richer
Violence against women must end now
Refugees, asylum seekers, and undocumented welcome
LGBTQIA lives are sacred
Black lives matter
And just who is this anti-Merican, anti-Christian place?
The Old Cambridge Baptist Church
This is truly a beautiful congregation.

To make icicles, first melt the snow, then freeze it.
This past fall, all the insulation from my attic was removed because of asbestos contamination. We’re about to make the appointment to re-insulate. In the meantime, my heating system is doing its best to heat the outdoors.

Sometimes you need a road trip.

Heading north was easy, but I-95 and I-495 were both snow-covered and slick all the way home.

“Veritas” is a trademark.
This sticker on the back of a van in a Harvard Square parking lot made me smile.

I missed my train this morning (for the first time this year), which gave me time to check out the freight trains.
