Project Bookpiglet: 'Zero:  The Biography of a Dangerous Idea'

Project Bookpiglet: 'Zero: The Biography of a Dangerous Idea'

It’s one of my all-time favorite pickup lines:  “Honey, when you’re done with this zero, call the hero.”  At which point I proffer a limited edition, Chewbacca commemorative pin, with my phone number and Capt. Reynolds – Rogue Squadron Leader written on the back to the lucky lady.  (You’d be surprised at how often this works.)  But now, times have […]

O So Close!

O So Close!

Shorebirds resting on the Copper River Delta, Alaska. Well, as I was mesmerized by the shorebird migration, I was told a wolverine walked down the beach about a hundred yards behind me!  I was right there with my camera mounted on my telephoto, all on a tripod – it couldn’t have been better timing, well, except for the part where I […]

Falls Creek Bridge Monday Night

As one of the unfortunate parties stuck on the north side of Falls Creek Bridge last Monday I would like to make a few comments. First, I feel it was extreemly irresponcible of the contractor to put out such poor, (down right untruthful), information, regarding the progress of the project. Monday morning they extended the closure from 5 AM to […]

A Tax on Tax

Attached is a scan of a curious utility bill for zero usage of electricity.  The bill assess the operations and infrastructure fee of $30.  I realize that I have to pay for the potential to draw electricity but there is then $2.10, 7% sales tax on the fee.  That is $25.20 per utility payer per year.

     Every summer Seward sees an influx of visitors and seasonal workers. As a result, motor homes, tow campers and tents begin to appear in back yards and vacant lots around town.

We normally travel to […]
