But is it Art!

Huge CV digging to put in optical cable for new internet and cable - 37 miles network cable, 17 miles fiber optic, 10 miles coaxial.  Much of this has been hand dug by 5 workers, amazing working up to 11 hours per day.

Anthony Bourdain

Bourdain’s CNN colleague and friend, Christiane Amanpour, said: “My heart breaks for Tony Bourdain. May he rest in peace now. He was a friend, a collaborator, and family. A huge personality, a giant talent, a unique voice and deeply, deeply human. My heart goes out to his daughter and family, and his longtime partners and friends at ZPZ

Avalanche Flamingos

Avalanche warning area.  In all seriousness, while flamingos are fun, they do serve a serious purpose. We want to reopen roads as soon as possible each spring, but we also need to keep our crews safe in the process. Closely following our safety policy lets us achieve both goals. And, if some of our tools also make the crews smile during a long, dangerous job, that doesn't hurt either.  WA

Equal Pay Day? Latinas Wish…And Black Women…And Mothers

Tuesday marks Equal Pay Day. But per Kristin Rowe-Finkbeiner on CNN Opinion: “Despite the fact that women make up nearly half of the workforce and receive more college degrees than men, they earn significantly less. Today, on average, women earn just 80 cents to a man’s dollar, with Latinas earning only 54 cents, black women only 63 cents and mothers only 71 cents.”  
and don't we know it ...

Did dog find its home?

Saturday - A dog like this approx ran up Haverhill along the whole golf curse, crossed road twice (eek) and then ran into village at Haverhill entrance.  I alerted guards but do not know what happened. High stepping chihuahua light brown and white.

Driving east on Okeechobee Boulevard the other day, I came to a stop at the Military Trail intersection. As I waited for a green light, I saw the cars simply whizzing by on Military Trail. All the cars were going very fast but some faster than others, and there was a mix of vehicles, three lanes of them. Then I thought about the fact that each car was being driven by its own driver, individuals of all different ages, some well, some no doubt ailing, and I marveled at how there were no accidents. Some of these people have headaches. Some are in the middle of a genuine emergency, and some are very sleepy. I've often marveled at this while driving busy roads, highways and city streets. There are accidents, of course, but why so FEW of them? And the ever-changing traffic lights are OBEYED by all these autonomous drivers. It is something to behold.

When visiting my son Peter in Scottsdale, AZ, we visited the neatest model train layout in a building. There were several trains running on the same and different tracks, some making stops and some going at different speeds. Everything was coordinated there, of course, either by a man at the controls or automatically by a carefully programmed device. But not so our traffic on Okeechobee or elsewhere on the busy streets around us. There it is hundreds of fallible human beings like myself on which everything hangs.

It almost seems as if there is some kind of central control over us.
