Wacky, Wonky World

1003491000

A light-hearted look at our crazy planetoid.   The Lion, the Clip, and the Po-po Norfolk, Virginia  –  The first caller was fairly calm.  “I’d like to report a lion sighting,” he said.  “Say that again?” a dispatcher responded.  And thus began the drama over baby lion sightings in Norfolk on Tuesday. Police said Wednesday …

MountainMan_Rt

Day One Notes “Well, here we are, the entrance to Bear Food State Park.” “Vogel State Park” my wife corrected. I have to admit that the park entrance was much prettier than I imagined, with a nice lake, a quaint little beach area, and a pleasant visitor center with real wood paneling.  After we checked …

Your Periodic Benedict Cumberbatch Update

Benny-benedict-cumberbatch-30738854-495-700

     Those in my inner circle (approximate 1 foot radius) know of my great admiration of all things Benedict Cumberbatch, easily the most well-named person in the history of the world.  I love the way “Cumberbatch” rolls off the tongue.  Cumberbatch, Cumberbatch, Cuummberbaaatch.  And when you couple the “atch” sound with the “ikk” sound in …

Wacky, Wonky World

Uranus

A light-hearted look at our crazy planetoid.   What Does Space Smell Like? Depends on the proximity to Uranus.  (Those new to the blog might as well know – I’m a sucker for a Uranus joke opportunity.) Astronauts who have gone on spacewalks consistently speak of space’s extraordinarily peculiar odor.  They can’t smell it while …
