Cat Appreciation Day

In the summers, Timmy roams far and wide. I seldom see him, as he hunts for birds and mice and takes up with the neighbors or explores the woods behind our house. But then, just when he's sure that life can't get any better, the snows return.

He hates to get his paws wet, and he despises walking across snow. So, when the snows set in, he basically becomes housebound and runs up and down the stairs like the world's on fire.

These last few days, he's basically just given up hope and slept in my bed all day.

Well, today is National Cat Appreciation day, so Jen and I wen to PetCo and picked up a bunch of new toys for him, including a new cat scratching pad with cat nip and a new toy where a fake mouse runs in a little circle. He went insane when I opened the cat nip, rolling around in it, gnawing on the cardboard scratching pad. Hopefully the toys will keep him from being bored out of his gourd this winter.

Hiker Gets Hyopthermia on Vancouver Island

Above: A North Island mountain range on Vancouver Island. August, 2011.

This guy will probably end up on an episode of I Shouldn't Be Alive. I was just up there (on Vancouver Island) in August, and it was cold and rainy then. Can't imagine what it's like in October. The landscape on the north end of the island is rugged, with mountains rising dramatically from sea level to thousands of meters.

Update: Angus has pointed out that this guy got lost north of the city of Vancouver, not on Vancouver Island. My bad. :)

The Khan Academy

So, I read about this a while back, but I failed to bookmark it at the time. If you have a child in school, you need to check out the Khan Academy.

"The Khan Academy is the institution of Salman Khan, who brought the idea of educating young people, self-starters, people who learn at their own pace -- online. "Educational"-type YouTube videos have now been around for years, but Khan Academy's repository is pretty ridiculous. The educational startup now counts over 2,600 videos in its library, with sessions or classes on everything from arithmetic to physics, including 211 practice exercises, to let students watch videos and learn at their own pace."

How Revolutionary Tools Cracked a 1700s Code

"A team of Swedish and American linguists has applied statistics-based translation techniques to crack one of the most stubborn of codes: the Copiale Cipher, a hand-lettered 105-page manuscript that appears to date from the late 18th century. They described their work at a meeting of the Association for Computational Linguistics in Portland, Ore."

The OWS Protestors

On the Reddit website, someone asked the following question tonight:

"To those of you who don't agree with the Occupy Wall Street Movement, what is your opinion of OWS?"

This was my reply:

"I think that they're dumb potheads that have no clue what's going on in the world. Because of that, the left sees them as "useful idiots" and sticks signs in their hands and tells them to parade up and down the street, blaming their problems on other people. I think that they see the world as being outside of their control. They see the people on Wall Street as fat cats born into a life of luxury, instead of people who raised themselves up by their bootstraps. I think that they'd choose communism over capitalism in the blink of an eye. I think that they're dumb, uneducated, gullible, and naive.

I think that they're led by the nose by dishonest miscreants on the left, fanning the flames of class warfare. They believe the compelling lies of the left - that others are responsible for their shortcomings in life. Instead of empowering these morons, the left destroys them by telling them that, if only we tax the rich more, then the poor will get their fair share.

It's a compelling story to feed the down and out, but it's nothing short of propaganda. Class warfare peddled to a bunch of fools that don't know any better.

The pathetic culmination of the left's steady progressive march toward socialism, at the expense of the most powerful nation on earth. I think it's a shame."

"I Shouldn't Be Alive" Parody

Jen and I like to watch this show on Animal Planet called "I Shouldn't Be Alive". Every episode usually starts the same...."I went out alone, without telling anyone where I was going, or when I'd be back. I didn't take a cell phone. Or a map. Or a compass. Or any survival gear." Then, they go off and do incredibly stupid things on top of all the mistakes they made before they left the house, and end up in near-death situations.

This week, I found this spoof/parody episode which wasn't very funny, but did start us talking about shooting our own parody. So today, we shot a parody episode of "I shouldn't Be Alive" where she and Piper go into a corn maze and are lost for 4 days.

My New Girlfriend

Some of you have asked about the girl I'm going out with now. I met her on eHarmony, which is kinda gay, but it's hard for me to meet chicks because I'm so shy and all. In any event, I saw her video profile on eHarmony and, although I didn't realize it from her video, she likes cats. And I have a cat, so we have that much in common. She's a little old for me, but other than that, she seems like a keeper.

The Full Alinsky

"Alinsky rode into town on a one-trick pony that the Left has since turned into its warhorse: Agitate one side's grievances, and appeal to another side's decency and gullibility in order to provoke the establishment, whose reaction will unite the other two. Then the community organizer charges in on his nag-turned-steed and proceeds to set the rot in motion under the banner of 'progress.' " - Michael Walsh

Rules for Radicals - Saul Alinsky

"One of the most important things in life is what Judge Learned Hand described as 'that ever-gnawing inner doubt as to whether you're right.' If you don't have that, if you think you've got an inside track to absolute truth, you become doctrinaire, humorless and intellectually constipated. The greatest crimes in history have been perpetrated by such religious and political and racial fanatics, from the persecutions of the Inquisition on down to Communist purges and Nazi genocide." - Saul Alinsky

Colorado Lions

Note: These are not my photos. They were taken by a housewife near Boulder last week.

We've had a few lion sightings in the general area, recently. About a week ago, they discovered a mountain lion hanging out in a tree near a pond at the Kittredge complex at the University of Colorado at Boulder.

And then, someone up near Boulder had a couple of lions turn up in their yard. One even came up and had a staring contest with their house cat. This is in an area called Pinebrook Hills. The original post is here.

President Hussein's Olive Branch to Iran

President Barack Hussein Obama:

Shortly after coming to office in January, he[President Barack Hussein Obama] said "if countries like Iran are willing to unclench their fists, they will find an extended hand from us".

President Hussein, like former President Carter before him, completely fail to understand the nature of the vermin of the Middle East. They are insane. They cannot be handled with kid gloves. They have no vested interest in peace, or in getting along with their neighbors. They're insane, suicidal, psychopaths, bent on destroying Israel and each other.

Plotting to bomb an American restaurant should be grounds for us turning their desert-home into a sheet of glass. I can promise you Ronald Reagan wouldn't have put up with this from them. But instead, we get President Hussein, who thinks this was all just a big misunderstanding. We'll let them continue to develop nuclear weapons, plot terror attacks on U.S. soil, and wave a finger at them through the UN sanctions.

Dear God I hope the Republican candidates have the good sense to call for a full-scale attack on Iran.

Trail Creek

Phoenix Mine


Here's a map of my little trip up Trail Creek last Friday. Basically, I ran up Trail Creek near Idaho Springs, CO. Went past the Phoenix Mine, and then ended up on Lamartine Road. Came back down and did a loop back onto Trail Creek. Then, I ran back up to see if Jones Pass was open. But, it was snowed in at the Henderson Mine. I'm sure a snowmobile could make it, but I wasn't going to try it on my motorcycle.

Postcards from the Fall: Wish You Were Here

I've been riding the XR around the Colorado Rockies for a few days, trying to snap a few shots of the fall before the snows of winter set in. Mostly, I've been riding around Clear Creek and Gilpin Counties. This fall has been exceptional in that the leaves have changed color very slowly, allowing the aspens to turn nearly as red as Maple trees. The prettiest fall I've experienced since I moved to Colorado about 15 years ago.

This is a slideshow of some of the shots I took over the last few weeks on my solo journeys through the Rockies.

The images were all captured on a Canon EOS 50D frame and a Canon image-stabilized, ultra-sonic telescopic zoom lens - either the EF-S 17-85mm f/4.0-5.6 IS USM or the EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM.

This slideshow features a song by Cold Play called Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.

The images are compiled into a 9 Meg (3:40 Adobe Flash slideshow (2011_fall.swf) that you should be able to open and view with any browser (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, etc.). To view the slideshow, just click on the photo above. If you want to view the slideshow as a Windows executable, you can play this version (2011_fall.exe), and it allows you to play, pause, skip forward, backwards, etc.

Image post-processing was done in Adobe Photoshop CS5 Extended. The slideshow was created using Imagematics Stillmotion Pro.

Lyrics and route in the extended entry.

This afternoon, I took a little ride up to the old Lamartine ghost town outside of Idaho Springs.

I've done it before, but it's been a few years. Now that I'm looking at my GPS tracks, I see where I should have gone. I'll make it through next time.
