No Idea

I haven't realized the magnitude of the California Stay at Home order until I saw this video.

My daily life has not been changed that much. Mainly because I'm a pretty boring person.

I still have a job that I have to go to.
The neighborhood is a little louder in the early afternoon than it was before.
There is less traffic on the road, but my commute didn't have much to begin with.

Seeing San Francisco during the day with no cars or people outside is striking in that there are always cars and/or people outside.

Two miles does not sound like very far to drive.

"It's just down the road." can mean a 10 to 15 minute drive. But, in the landscape view 2 miles is a pretty big difference.

First view of Half Dome and El Capitan on Hwy 41 driving into Yosemite Valley.

As you come around this corer you can see the granite formations that Yosemite is famous for for the first time. They are impressive, but no match for the better known Tunnel View.

Although you can see Half Dome better the first time, you still get a better understanding of the layout of Yosemite Valley from tunnel view. There is the slightest hint of the valley in the first view, but at Tunnel View it spreads out before you. You see the enormity of El Capitan for the first time.

I've been in Yosemite on vacation this week. Thursday we drove around the Valley and I spent some time walking around and taking photos. Here are some of my favorites from the day trip.

Tunnel View

This is always a stunning view. It was especially clear on the way down to the valley. You can see a control burn in progress.

This shadow of a tree on a very calm Merced river was a great find on one of my walks.

Merced River in the Valley

El Capitan is a force of nature. It is almost impossible to put into words how big this granite wall is.

Bridalveil Falls

The scenery around Yosemite Valley is always impressive. I enjoy all the time that I spend in my favorite National Park.

So, um, yeah, this is way out of my wheelhouse. But, what an amazing video.

I can't believe that there are people out there that do this.


This 5 minute video showcasing the craftsmanship of James and Tilla Waters by Nick Bennett is excellent.

Now I have a new place to shop for hand made ceramics.

Just wait till I do them shambling on walkers in old age.

Today's News:

I really like the look of this desktop calendar

I think it is to small for my taste. 5" x 5" is probably standard desktop calendar size.
Not sure what the ideal size would be for my taste though.

Maybe I'll get it to see if my expectations are correct. If I don't like it I can always gift it to someone.

This deep fake is an interesting one

I agree with Kotke that they should have added Zendaya. Although a young Marisa Tomei would be better based on the story Back to the Future is telling. Lorraine, after all, is Marty McFly's mother.
