He was a FINE painter of nudes too, though he is NOT well known for these. You should check them out.

Amazing!


Amazing in every way.

That he would still only be 62 today is amazing. He is younger than I.

That he has been dead for 5.5 years is amazing. That long? Feels like it was just yesterday.

He was just 56 years old. Amazing.

Take a second to reflect.

Everything about Steve Jobs is amazing.

I came across these over the weekend, on Facebook, when somebody commented on my picture of Maya (on the March 27, 2016, “6 Images for the Day“). Was I impressed? I actually wanted to wear around MY neck. That would be quite the fashion accessory for I. They do come in MY neck size (15″ – 16″). So this could be my new look. As I said on Facebook, Maya and Braxton are cute enough even with cheap collars. I am the one that needs all the help — though at my age it is a lost cause and I have shed whatever shreds of vanity I ever had.

But, back to dogs. These are special. Of course given the craftsmanship involved they are not inexpensive. But they definitely seems worth it. I know that a lot of you will not think twice about getting one or more of these collars. Go for it. Enjoy.

Maybe I have seen this before, but I found this today, promoting views of New York City, when I visited the U.K. Daily Mail, my favorite newspaper of all time, looking for the latest information (replete with pictures we never get to see in the US) of the LA school shooting. Yes, they had pictures and names — and this was at 7pm Eastern on Thursday.

Cervino‘, a name mentioned in the title of the panorama, is my all time favorite ski resort — by far. I skied it, for a week each, two years running before I came to the U.S. in 1985.

Having learned to ski and having done all my European skiing in the Alps, I had the hardest time getting used to the NH ski resorts. These images might help you understand. Zermatt is the sister resort on the other side of the Mattherhorn — and across the border, in Switzerland. You can ski from one resort to the other, with a passport — though I never did that.

They used to have one ski run, across three glaciers that was 16 miles long. One trail, 16 miles. Two cafes on the way. Most days that would be how I started the morning. The 16 mile trail, stopping for coffee and cakes.

I looked at the Vatican pictures too. Very good. Amazing.

Enjoy.
