Chopin potato vodka (shown here with the Chiller cover) seems to pack a little bit of an extra punch but it is still smooth and even a little creamy. It is not inexpensive but I think it is worth the extra cash...maybe it is just because that subtle potato vodka flavor reminds me of being in the night clubs in Krakow.
The Kee Bird was an United States Army Air Forces B-29 Superfortress of the 46th Reconnaissance Squadron, that became marooned after making an emergency landing in northwest Greenland during a secret Cold War spying mission on 21 February 1947. Although the entire crew was safely evacuated, after spending three days in the isolated Arctic tundra, the aircraft itself was left at the landing site. It lay there undisturbed until 1994, when a privately-funded mission was launched to repair and return it. The attempted recovery resulted in the effective destruction and loss of the airframe. The documentary about the recovery effort on Nova is worth a look.
This was the loacation of the Bryce-English wedding this weekend. Near downtown Rockport, the area has an amazing history from native American settlement, to timber source, then large block granite source, amazing fishing ground, lobster center, artist community and now a thriving (and annoying) tourist destination. An incredibly interesting place and the history is palpable.
It was hard to see the stadium on TV and even the pictures on the web do not seem to do the design justice. The mix of decoration and structure along with the scale of the details make it pretty distinctive and special. This picture of it from last year while it was still under construction is the best I have seen. It is also obvious that it was designed to be viewed from many angles (unlike Cowboys stadium). It might have been nice to go with a slightly brighter hue.
This box on a stand look is certainly better than the Oakley-esque overly articulated forms from a few years ago. Perhaps a little static but at least it is more comfortable in its intended environment. However, this furniture-like constructed look is a little heavy handed and the proportions seem to be out of whack.
It seems like there are probably better ways to tether a camera to your backpack, beltloop or whatever, but aside from the ham-fisted logo-type this seems pretty nice at $18.99. I am sure that the resolution is wanting but maybe it is marketed towards kids? The version I saw on vacation was a premium branded with a mountaineering clubs logo. It is interesting to see how quickly this detailing language has become dated and commoditized.
