I guess I’ve always been a reader. Years ago somebody told me I describe books I read like someone describing a movie. I guess that made me feel pretty good. Usually, the book is better than the movie, but sometimes the move makes me go read the book..
Yesterday I showed a “reading list” button (that didn’t work) that was supposed to go to the blogs I’m following. Today I can’t find that button anymore. Apparently, now I can’t access the Blogs I’m following from the Blogger control panel! That is just STUPID!!! I suppose I have to exit Blogger completely to see my blog reading list using Google Reader. I’m trying to think of ANYTHING better about the new interface, but can’t. The new font colors maybe??? Nah.

My old dashboard.
(I carefully took the stereo out but left the adapter in case someone ever puts one back in)
Stopped at the corner because I forgot my camera

By Beloved Vehicle in the junkyard as I sadly walked home.
It’s right on the corner so I will see it every time I drive by.
I feel much like I felt when my first ship got decommissioned when I was in the Navy. But worse. I will never forget my Toyota Landcruiser. I am sure there will ever be another car I love as much.

He’s too much of an idiot to be a king

Murdering animals for pleasure is not a new hobby to Don Juan Carlos. The 74-year old monarch has 50 years of experience (almost his entire adult life) hunting elephants, bears, wolves, leopards… you name it. According to The Guardian, he paid 7.000 Euros in 2004 to shoot a European bison —one of the world’s most endangered species (approximately 1.600 left)— during a trip to Poland.
And the rest of his hunting deeds could easily fill up a second or third memoir. I’d suggest “How to Rule the Wilderness in Two Easy Steps” as a title.
Step 1: Buy it.
Step 2:Kill it.
Rann Safaris, the king’s hunting ally in Botswana, has deactivated today both itswebsite and the Facebook page, where several photographs of the king’s hunting adventure with the company had previously been posted.
But theshocking videoof their bloody trails is still spreading around the internet, like a dark shadow of what man—with money, a gun and no compassion—can do to nature, animals and, ultimately, to himself.
