Finally downloaded my camera.
Beethoven’s Emperor Sonata: Woof! First hearing, by Yuni. Ordered it before it was finished on the radio.
Sometimes you run across an idea so powerful, yet so simple, that it resonates and spears you with its harmonics. Daniel Barenboim understands and explains the power and promise of music perfectly.
We usually get a Mallard pair visiting the pond this time of year. Took this today with my 14-42mm lens. Next time I’ll use the telephoto zoom. What’s really cool is when mom-duck returns with her babies. Stay tuned…
Laura Ingraham apologized and begged forgiveness from the Parkland students in general for her mild snarky tweet about Hogg’s whining. Public begging only ever incentivises Progressive pukes like him and his handlers, cum enablers. David Cole, at Takimag, explains much more elegantly and fully than I ever could the folly of Laura’s squirming. Her goose is cooked.
Update: apparently the schmos at Fox read Rat. Here’s their statement courtesy of Monica Showalter at American Thinker.
Here is the statement from Fox News’s co-president, Jack Abernethy, as reported by the Daily Wire:
We cannot and will not allow voices to be censored by agenda-driven intimidation efforts. We look forward to having Laura Ingraham back hosting her program next Monday when she returns from spring vacation with her children.
Olympus OM-D, E-M10MarkII, Micro-Four Thirds. Have 14-42 and 40-150 zoom lenses, both with circular polarizing filters. Weighs about 1/10th of my older Olympus E-3 which used the much larger Four Thirds format lenses. Slightly higher F #’s with the new one, but for the size, don’t care. The new one has WiFi: Crikey!
From this am, only using AUTO; a sunny morning, finally:
Still water because my new pond pump, 2.7 HP Century V-Green, is variable speed, and this low setting oxygenates the water, only using 100W. I am a control freak, in spite of PGE’s wishes.
So, yeah, I am having serious trouble with Spring fever this year. We didn’t go the the beach this week because my perfect spouse contracted the Crud. Postponed until 4-2.
My camera activity is getting an upgrade. I cracked the glass over the function display on my beloved Olympus E-3, so it’s retiring. It’s only good for fair weather action now. My new camera is an Olympus OM-D Mark 10 II: Micro four-thirds, 15.6 Megapixel, 5-way internal stabilization, screamingly fast AF, 8.5 fps, and built-in WiFi. Woof! Until I get it on Monday, here’s a few iPhone shots from yesterday:
Our pink Magnolia is raring to go.
The maximally green-thumbed spouse’s late winter flower basket adorns the deck.
We begged the Camellia and it finally listened.
Water is up to 53F, so the fish are chowing down, their most potent skill.
