World After Work

After Paihia, we made our way back to Auckland for one night prior to leaving behind the comfort of anglophone nations and crossing the pacific to Latin America. We had to make a brief stop on our way south as Ishbel had inadvertently left her headphones at our last AirBnB stop in Whangaparaoa. Luckily, her […]

A Planet Full Of Stories

In the early hours of the morning, two men dressed in police uniform entered the museum and handcuffed the two security guards. What happened next was the largest art […]

Year Nine Classical Civilisation at Cheney

In this week’s lesson, we started by listing all the myths which we could remember being mentioned in Unmythable’s performance last Tuesday evening – as can be seen by the board photo below, there were lots of stories that were mentioned, both at length and as passing references, and no doubt many that we have […]

Paul and Pat's Travels

Perhaps I should explain. My interest in taking pictures has necessarily led me to an appreciation for the interplay of light and shadow. I say appreciation because I can’t pretend to have any mastery of it but I am now getting to a point where I can appreciate someone elses’  mastery. Enter the master painter […]

Word Journeys

I just got back from a trek across town to get work started on a building permit.  It wasn’t until I got home that it dawned on me that I had passed many highlights of a tourist’s visit to my city: Washington, DC. I began in my neighborhood, in upper NW, and crawled (traffic!) on […]

My Life in the Background

So what’s going on in the background?  Well, it hasn’t been the most exciting lately to be honest.  You already know about me not being used when I last worked on Chicago Med.  That was the first time I have ever worked and not been used at all in a scene.  Guess what? It happened […]

lcarslibrarian

Oh hey, it’s me, back from the (online) dead to once again ask you all to please contact your representatives to ask them to fund libraries. You may remember that I wrote a similar post back in 2017 when Trump previously tried to defund LSTA grants and eliminate the Institute for Museum and Libraries. It’s […]

Reflections

What does horse racing mean to you? Pose that question in diverse circles and you’ll be surprised by the variety of answers. The publicity garnered with 22 horse deaths at Santa Anita is taking “fringe” and placing it front and center. Belinda Stronach, Chairman and President of Stronach Group, took good starting measures on Thursday […]

2019 Alaska — Chasing the Northern Lights

We met downstairs for an early breakfast and were on the road to Chena Hot Springs by 9:30. Everyone we met warned us to be very careful driving this road due to ice and moose. We were excited that the odds of a moose sighting were in our favor on this drive. Chena is only […]

Perhaps the most stunning looking machine of its type.

Creating a New Reality

I feel so numb about everything.  All I feel anymore is anger, or frustration.  I’m happy when I’m dancing, but the rest of the time I’ve got nothing.  Zero. I’m having a hard time sleeping… but eating doesn’t seem to be a problem in the least. The one thing I feel… nervous/anxious (hence the not […]

Have Airstream Will Travel

When we rolled into Fredericksburg, Texas, this past week during our spring break meandering, we had no idea that we would be spending almost a day and a half at the National Museum of the Pacific War. However, that is exactly what we did, and it was time well spent. Our first day in Fredericksburg, […]
