I found this vid and loved it. I hope all of you enjoy it as well.
Here’s one for the dog lovers
Here is one for the whale lovers.
And last, but not least… Who says we can’t work together?
Here’s bonus vid with a scuba diving cat. 🙂
On March 31st, I posted Walking Fort Point and its seven feet deep walls.
This week, we went back to enjoy the sunshine. Here are a few pics of the military Batteries in the vicinity and a few shots of Fort Point from the bluff and bridge above.
One way the final take over could go is gradual, with cats making more and more non-aggressive displays of domination, as in diplomatic cuteness when asking for food or attention, like so:
This type of display is not unique:
Like Dr. Hubbs in “Phase IV”, we are now reduced to documenting and surrendering to the revolting affectations of cuteness. Well better that than the alternative…
Lo, they’ll soon be reading books…
Wow! The dog has now been reunited with his owner. 🙂
Standing at the entrance of the Bay for 150 years, Fort Point is a great example of military architecture, of a design made obsolete by advances in artillery and ordnance. The masonry, shape of the fort and its surroundings all contribute to a pretty singular experience, and make Fort Point a great place to practice with a camera.
In fact, it seems almost impossible to take a bad shot.
A friend of mine, who posts elsewhere, posted about this. Her username is effervescent and she lives up to it. Her post was about Yoga, but I’m stealing the kitty bits. The original post was centered around quitting smoking and coping methods. Yes, I’m a quitter and proud of it. Actually, Lastech and I are both quitters. She gets full credit though for this post though. I must add that the first LOL pic is also from the quitters section. I don’t know if it was made for our group or not. No matter, it’s quite wonderful and I love it. If or when, I know for sure, I’ll update to give credit where it is due.
Hollywood has lost an icon. She passed away at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center of congestive heart failure. She was surrounded by her four children.
Beginning her career as a child star, Elizabeth Taylor became on of Hollywood’s biggest icons as well as one of its greatest beauties. Her first movie of note was Lassie Come Home (1943) with Roddy McDowall. She launched her career with National Velvet (1944) and went on to make many more memorable films, such as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf (1966), Giant (1956), and Cleopatra (1963).
Our condolences to her family, friends, and fans.
Today, March 14, is Pi Day.
Pi, according to Wikipedia:
… is a mathematical constant whose value is the ratio of any Euclidean plane circle’s circumference to its diameter; this is the same value as the ratio of a circle’s area to the square of its radius. It is approximately equal to 3.14159265 in the usual decimal notation. Many formulae from mathematics, science, and engineering, involve π, which makes it one of the most important mathematical constants.
π is an irrational number and cannot be expressed in a fraction.
Now we’re done with the geek bit. And we’re on to the fun stuff.
Pi Day was created by Larry Shaw in 1989. According to Wikipedia:
The holiday was celebrated at the San Francisco Exploratorium, where Shaw worked as physicist, with staff and public marching around one of its circular spaces, then consuming fruit pies. The Exploratorium continues to hold Pi Day celebrations.
In celebration, here is a bit of Pi for your enjoyment.
A little music…
