Note From Z Woof: this terrorist showed up on my doorstep this morning and rather than argue with him over my non-involvement in his personal problems or trying to ascertain why he wanted to bite me, I applied the “Mark IV Shovel Bomb” to his neck. No Gitmo fer this ol’ boy.

Krakatau Volcano
-by-
Space Imaging

Lying in the Sunda Strait between the islands of Java and Sumatra, Krakatau Volcano is famous for producing one of the largest explosions on Earth. In about 416 AD, a caldera collapse destroyed a larger island. Krakatau, Verlaten and Lang are all that remains of that volcano. In 1883, the explosion of the volcano destroyed much of Krakatau. The eruption was one of the most catastrophic natural disasters in recorded history. The effects were experienced on a global scale. Fine ashes from the eruption were carried by upper level winds as far away as New York City. The explosion was heard more than 3000 miles away. Volcanic dust blew into the upper atmosphere affecting incoming solar radiation and the earth’s weather for several years. A series of large tsunami waves generated by the main explosion, some reaching a height of nearly 40 meters (more than 120 feet) above sea level, killed more than 36,000 people in the coastal towns and villages along the Sunda Strait on Java and Sumatra islands. Tsunami waves were recorded or observed throughout the Indian Ocean, the Pacific Ocean, the American West Coast, South America, and even as far away as the English Channel.

Shark Food

Several people made remarks about the seals and sharks in San Fan-Looney bay. Well, here is a shot of the Shark Appetizer du jour. These guys swim into the bay and congregate on the floats at Fishermen’s Wharf to bask in the sunlight for a few hours while the sharks circle underneath. I agree with Stan. I’m getting hungry for sourdough. Culinary tip: one of the restaurants on the wharf serves the most wonderful clam chowder in baked sourdough bread “bowls”. You can eat the chowder and then eat your bowl .. or break it up into pieces and feed the sea gulls that constantly swarm around freeloading off of the tourists. Kinda like the drifters downtown in the Tenderloin district ....

The Big House

Note: Yes, this is Alcatraz Island as viewed from Fishermen’s Wharf, just on the edge of Chinatown (in San Fran-Looneytown). Taken on one of my trips to Oracle corporate headquarters a few years ago. It’s a long swim, ain’t it? Did I mention the seals that swarm to the harbor (and sun themselves on floats at the wharf) and the sharks that follow them? Those sharks made escape from the prison a wee bit diifficult.

Photo Du Jour

As you can tell, I am partial to nature photography (but, I am not ‘the Artiste’).  When my wife and I celebrated our 20th anniversary in 2003, we took a train trip across the Rockies from Vancouver, B.C. to Calgary, Alberta.  We then spent a week in the Banff and Lake Louise area of the Rockies.  My next few photo postings will be from that trip.  This one is one of my most favorite photos that I’ve ever taken.  It is of a lake we passed while driving on the Banff-Jasper highway.

Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
