Billy Bread

We are lucky to have this in town the down side is: “Billy Bread is among the best bread you can buy in Richmond, VA, but it goes stale really fast.” That doesn’t bother me since all the bread I like seems to have this problem, so I don’t mind slicing it up and freezing. This Billy Bread makes the most sinful french toast!

Tributes in Light

“The Icelandic Postal Company has released a new series of stamps in October 2008 depicting the Imagine Peace Tower, which is dedicated to the memory of Beatle John Lennon. The stamp is printed in a traditional offset format and then overprinted with phosphorus in silk screen which causes the picture to accumulate light and then glow in the dark. When exposed to ultraviolet light, a picture of John Lennon appears on the stamp.”

“On October 9, 2007 legendary artist, musician and peace advocate Ms. Yoko Ono, unveiled an artwork in Iceland to remind us all of the importance of world peace. The Imagine Peace Tower, as the monument is called, will consist of a simple column of light that will be located on the island of Videy, where it will be visible from the capital, Reykjavik.
This project is based on a piece of conceptual art that Ms. Ono conceived in the 1960s entitled “Light House”. Her late husband, John Lennon, had expressed interest in the “Light House” and the two intended to bring the concept into reality. It was Ms. Ono’s wish that this beacon of light be sited in Reykjavik because Iceland has never maintained an army and is a world-leader on environmental issues.”

The “Tribute in Light”, a tribute to all those who were lost on September 11th as well as those who worked hard to get New York City through its darkest hour, will be on for one night on September 11, beginning at sunset and fading away at dawn on September 12th.

The lights are best seen when it is completely dark. Sunset is expected to occur at 7.11 p.m. local time that night and sunrise is expected to occur at 6.34 a.m. the next morning.

The Slack Family

We were invited last night to a reserved table to eat dinner and see The Slack Family at Shenanigans Eatery & Pub (the old “Cock and Bull” where all the greats of Bluegrass played in it’s HeyDay). The food was good and it was excellent to see the tradition of Bluegrass is still being carried on! I probably hadn’t seen The Slack Family in a decade and they have just gotten better with age. I still miss that female singer they started with, she really added a High Lonesome sound.

Tesla & Twain

I read Tesla’s bio which was in Ginter Community Center library in 1967-68, it may have been from Major Ginters collection? A friend down the street had built a tesla coil and had enlighten us of this book about Nikola Tesla.

Route 1 Downtown

Last night when I shot this panorama I took two shots of every frame of panorama. I found with moving cars for some reason my camera goes out of focus (good thing to know).
