Cousin of Toonces

Remember "Toonces the Driving Cat" from SNL about 20 years ago? Here's his cousin, the Hovercat:

Dreadlocks Guy

This young man was kind enough to pose for this action shot for me. I love the way the dreads are flying.

My photostream on Flickr

I've actually managed to use ALL of my Flickr bandwidth this month. Quite frankly, I think they must have lowered the limit of uploads, because I think I uploaded 17 (high-quality) pictures. I may need to go pro. It's only 25 bucks, right?

Here is a link to my "photostream" on Flickr:

Did I mention that I've already outgrown the Nikon point-and-shoot and have upgraded to a Canon digital SLR? It's awesome - I have the Canon Digital Rebel XTi, and I'm using 2 lenses: an 18-55mm for wide-angle shots, and a 55-250mm (image stabilized!!)for zooming. I swear, I'm not buying any more photography equipment until Xmas.

Peace Village


I am having a little R&R at Peace Village in Haines Falls, NY. It's beautiful here in the Catskills. So far, I've walked a labyrinth for the first time. I wasn't sure what exactly I was supposed to be thinking about - perhaps nothing but the labyrinth. All I could think at the time was "When will I be done with doing this labyrinth?" Typical for me at retreats. It takes me about a whole day to really slow down from the rat race. Also takes about that long for the ringing in my ears to stop. I am so used to the constant hum of city noise that my ears need time to detox, I suppose.

The view here is also very nice - other mountains, rocks, a reflecting pool (haven't seen that yet).

The accomodations here are kind of so-so: Everything is clean, but rather old. I would say that it's 4-star for camping out, but 1-star for a real hotel. Considering the price of the retreat, which was a song ("We'll accept any donation."), it's a steal. More later as I learn about the actual retreat.

This graph was created by "Alden Ford" in GraphJam (, a fun site where people post silly graphs. I couldn't resist posting this one, and one other:

As you can see, a lot of the graphs are based on songs. Check it out for a quick snicker.
