  1. I love it. And before I knew what it was, as I rolled down the picture, the first thing that popped into my mind was "Dr. Seuss".

  4. Cool! What a great sculpture. In the first shot I thought maybe it was a kite or wind sock of some type.

  10. f a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
    And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
    And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
    Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

    If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
    And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
    And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
    Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!

    I went off in search of an appropriate seussian line and found this by Gene Ziegler which I just had to share.

    Better days are coming.. don't worry, be happy.

  11. Unfortunately, the rest of the memorial didn't do anything for me. It's all bronze replicas of the most famous of the Dr. Seuss characters. Very drab when you consider how his use of bright primary colors. And they characters are all jumbled together in a confusing heap. I think the artist (s) should have tried to apply some color to the pieces as they did with the "thing in the sky" I photographed.

    Fishing, 2sweet, Paz and Rhoen thanks for coming by for Sky Watch.

    Susan: Ha! That's great! Thanks for taking the time to leave that in comments. And you kind words meant a lot to me, too. Namaste, my friend.

    Much love to everyone!
