Orographic Lift on Santa Rita Mts. and Metric Madness

–This orographic lift on Santa Rita Mts. went on to anchor several hours of showers in the area. That is a real mission from way back when in foreground.


-I’ve lived in these parts of Arizona for well over 20 years, and we’ve always had metric (mileage) around here, so I don’t know what the rest of you all are waiting for. (I-19 at least) But unlike here; when you all go European on us, make the speed signs metric as well, so foreigners will think we are actually logical and stuff.

Once the speed and distance signs match mathematically, the newcomers will not be going so slow, causing the Americans to bottle up behind them and do risky passing maneuvers on the right. But who is counting?…

Maybe John McCain could earmark an update on this?  He’s used to risky passing maneuvers on the political right.

There is hope…

Code is Poetry?


WordPress claims that Code is Poetry. What the?

<>Uh<.,.////.,/., >><<blah>><<

When I heard them at Wordbend say code is poetry, I agreed. Morse Code did seem like a poetry of clicks, spaces, dashes, and all a secret except to the in crowd with the right ears. But that was not it.

Well? What Code then? Code words, secret code? Code is Poetry What?

The answer seems to be geek-speak; the techno myopia of the digital in crowd’s meaning of a thing.

How was I supposed to know that’s the Code they were taking about? I’m in the out crowd. Seems like a lot of assumption that the rest of the definitions of Code do not exist or are irrelevant. Those who “know” know what they mean. It is up to you, the random generated public, to get it right.

Oh? You mean like Poetry?


Then Hello. Code is poetry!




No I do not know that Code

Over and out…

Breaking Blog. Anybody still blogging?

Small time blog critic at large branches out into other area’s he knows little about.

I should add; I do not wish to know.


Benafia gone hard wired conservative!  Extra!

I have enough of a life already. I do not need to stuff yet anther piece into it. I’m lucky if I check my E-mail every month.  If I start doing something else, the next thing, this blog would go dormant.

But Twittering? Ain’t happening.  Not interested! (yet?)

But it’s kool and you’re a fool!

Doesn’t matter. I’ll let other thought out news sources tell me about all the important stuff on Twitter after it actually becomes important. I don’t care if 10 people a second are in a Twit over something. Congratulations I guess. Have enough followers or whatever you are looking for on the next new thing yet?

What do you mean you will know the end of the world is coming before me?

I heard the next new thing is Kaputnic. Not sure what it is about, but I’m sure after a certain threshold everyone will have to get Kaputnic. It is about an emotion of brokenness one is having at the moment, or something connective like that. Really a must for the must not be left behind from still being relevant crowd. Invest now, or be a permanent loser left in the forgotten past.

I made that last part up.

In a Twit over Twitter?

My Sling Shade consideration of Elvis, Fey, Palin, Tornadoes and Tomatoes

Tina Fey was on a recent TV interview, where she said she was no character impersonator, or something to that effect. She suggested that Sarah Palin was evidently real easy like Sling Blade. I decided to take my little camera out and test her thesis. She was right.

(A caveat on picture and sound quality; sometime the wind seemed to take over the microphone for brief periods at the top of the hill. I was intentionally pointing the camera down for character effect, in case you wonder. Sure you were. Also, I do not work for, nor go to Carl’s Junior. Did many years ago.)
