Dave!Blame: Naturally, Verizon blamed all the problems I'm having trying to use their online services on the fact that I am using a Macintosh. Why am I not surprised. The web was imagined as a way to share information regardless of how you may be accessing it. The web is beyond any one computer platform or device. That's why I think that people should be able to sue people under accessibility laws for crap like this.

Fire: Wildfires are burning out of control in the canyons surrounding the valley I live in. It's both horrifying and beautiful to watch as fire flows like lava down hills and over divides. Sadly, a helicopter crashed while battling the fires today, and even more firefighters have been called in across the State (and neighboring States as well) to help out. I wish that the weather would turn and give them a break, but forecasts for the next several days call for heat-waves up to 105 degrees.

Killer: Kill Bill Vol. 2 is just as remarkable as I remember it on the big screen. Uma deserves an Oscar nod for this one (as does Quentin... nobody can write dialogue like Tarantino).

Tired: Working day and night since I got back from Europe is killing me. I sure hope I manage to get more than my usual 4-5 hours of sleep tonight! Goodnight.

    You should have taken some of our rain back with you – in some areas we had 2 months’ rain in 36 hours over Monday and Tuesday!

    When I lived in Nevada, I’d (respectfully, responsibly) chase wildfires in the jeep. One in particular I remember in Antelope Valley in the hills above Reno, we had to take an alternate route around where the trucks were working and had blocked off the only way in. We ended up four-wheeling up a mountain, which dumped us out at the crest overlooking a whole valley on fire. It looked like hundreds of filament strings spilled from the sky. Firefighters were working to save a large stable, and next.. the home beyond it.

    So strikingly beautiful, and so tragic.
