Weird Book of the Week

Weird Book of the Week

I don’t like haircuts.  They cost money, the buzzers tickle my ears, and, sometimes I look funny afterwards, though that might have something to do with my appearance before as well I suppose, but generally, I am not a fan of haircuts. What I am a fan of though, is being cheap when it comes to nonessential items.  Haircuts are […]

Tree

The Latest from Niebrugge Images Photo Blog Snow covered tree along Resurrection Bay, Seward, Alaska. Sticking with the tree theme – here is another image from Sunday. The gloomy, dark storm clouds moving up Resurrection Bay, really helped emphasis the fresh white snow on the branches. This weather has me thinking it might be a good time to point out […]

Weird Book of the Week

Last night I made a list of all the things I could think of that can make a grown man cry.  Now, either I’m a little too “new age” or most of the guys I know have been bottling up their feelings, because it turned into quite the list.  We don’t have the time to go into it all right […]

Mountain Alpenglow

Mountain Alpenglow

The Latest from The Niebrugge Images Photo Blog Mountain alpenglow, Seward, Alaska. Here is another new image captured right from our front porch late last week – it feels like cheating! I love how only this one peak from the entire range emerged from the clouds – and if that wasn’t enough, it then became briefly illuminated with wonderful alpenglow.  We get […]

But if you are among the discontented, and at my calculations the numbers around 60 million these days once you factor in the rising number […]

The Boys and Girls Club of Seward

I’ve resurrected an old letter I wrote last year.  I add it now because The Boys and Girls Club of Seward needs your help.  Funding has been dwindling for this organization for the last couple of years and unless the community supports the club, it will disappear.  Though my daughter is older and not quite as active in the club, […]

Politics of Hate

On Sunday morning, November 2nd, two days before the election, I sat on the “grassy knoll” in Dallas Texas.

I had just completed the tour of the “Sixth Floor Museum”, the memorial for and site of the JFK assassination that took place on a similar […]
