Bluebird K7 Is Reborn

I remember following the news of Donald Campbell and his Bluebirds in their numerous land and water speed records back in the sixties. So very cool that the great Bluebird K7 hyrdoplane has been brought back to life by a wonderful team of volunteers. Sky News presented a fascinating program on the Bluebird story. Hope you can view it.

ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT FIREWORKS

 

48272BE2-EB0F-4162-AAAC-5F5385C492A4It’s that time again in USerland. Fireworks will once more fill the atmosphere with particulate matter and numerous heavy metals to be inhaled by human and non-human animals alike. These ‘delightful’ aerial displays rain down billions of plastic pieces to pollute our waterways and soil year after year. Let alone the noise pollution. Something to think about on the Fourth, New Year’s and any other fireworks worthy celebratory occasion. Please inform your family, friends and community of the toxic and environmental dangers of fireworks. Fireworks are deadly for numerous reasons. There are safer alternatives. Just say no to fireworks.

Thank you.

Roadside Puddle Swimmers

Observed these animals swimming in a roadside puddle which appears after each rain, Location is Seaside, Oregon. The puddle is frequently driven over by automobiles. Puddle may be similar to a vernal pool in its behavior. Trying to identify them.

Facebook needs to face the music.

Just close it down. It has served its purpose, making some people very rich.

The Original Avengers (The only Avengers worth their salt)

The television series began in 1961 on ITV (produced by ABC Television) starring Ian Hendry (Dr. David Keel) and Patrick Macnee (John Steed). Hendry left after the first year and Macnee became the leading man. Through the next eight years Steed was assisted by female partners Honor Blackman (Cathy Gale), Diana Rigg (Emma Peel) and Linda Thorson (Tara King) and briefly Julie Stevens (Venus Smith) and Jon Rollason (Dr Martin King).

We watched this program religiously as teenagers. It was campy and most importantly British. It was a staple for many kids.

The present day faux Avengers have nothing on Steed and his associates. They were the real deal.
