Attacks on “Institutions of Truth”

I have become increasingly alarmed by attacks by President Trump on our news media, the environment and people of color.  When an authority figure constantly denigrates the media who’s duty, among others, is to be a window into our government, I conclude that authority figure is in the process hiding misdeeds and malintent.   News []


Unfair trade practice

I designed a fantastic new shirt.  The material in that shirt will change thermal efficiency with the changes in external temperature.  In fact it can cool the wearer in hot weather and warm the wearer I cold weather.  It is light and flexible.  It is the perfect shirt. I want you to manufacture this shirt []


Control of our Border and “The Wall”

I am firmly against illegal entry into the United States. Control of our southern border is in the news every day now.  It seems the number of people being apprehended illegally entering our country from the south is reaching numbers not seen since 2006.  Heated discussions for and against a wall to prevent entry from []


Global Warming a solution?

Most of us have an opinion about global warming. Some say it doesn’t exist. Some say it is caused by emissions. Some say it is simply a natural cycle of the earth and some say the emissions caused by man are not the cause of global warming. Most agree that the cause is carbon dioxide []


Political Wasteland

We often talk about political problems in this country.  I have done a lot of trouble shooting.  Some of it on large complex electronic systems.  This mess is so complex that I have no idea where someone or some entity could start the trouble shooting process.  Clearly it should start with the voters but we []


Used equipment for sale

I don’t often have used equipment for sale.  These items are on sale because I have replaced them with newer models.  All are in excellent condition.  The computer has all the stock programs and the latest Mac operating system (OS X El Capitan) installed.  I can answer any questions you have about the units.

Birds of a Feather

For those of you who couldn’t make the opening of my exhibition “Birds of a Feather” tonight, I have a video which will give you an idea of what the show looked like.  It was a great evening.  My friend/partner Ruth Hoyt is the videographer.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myRxp1nOqQ8

I am pleased to announce that I have a gallery exhibition opening April 2, 2016 at Steve Martins Fine Art Gallery, 624 Julia St. New Orleans La.  The reception is from 6pm to 9pm.  The exhibition will be in the gallery until May 2. My birds are predominantly birds that “flock together,” nest together in []


Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries

Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries Review I went to Lake Martin and Jefferson Island Rookeries Sunday  and Monday 5/17 and 18 for the first time this year.  I can summarize my trip by saying that Lake Martin is no longer a viable location for wading bird photography.  The rookery at Jefferson Island is healthy []


The Wave

    I hiked to the wave with my partner Ruth Hoyt and friend Eric Dong in February 2015.  I write about it because it was an inspiring hike and an awe inspiring sight.  We arrived at the trail head a little after daylight the morning of our permit to find temperatures in the 20s. []
