I caught up with the laundry, paid some bills and enjoyed a Sunday morning while listening to Alec Baldwin's latest edition of Here's The Thing. The guest is is Roz Chast, who's been drawing cartoons of neurotics, cats and the stuff we leave around the house (and much else) for the New Yorker since 1978. It's a great conversation.
This is from an October 1970 TV appearance in which Joni Mitchell performs one of her biggest hits. One thing I like about the clip is watching Mitchell approach the guitar, adjust the tuning (tuning is no small thing for her sound) and modestly downplay her voice before she starts in on the song. (Watch for a change in lyrics that replace the title!)
In 1994, Martha and I had the opportunity to go to San Francisco (we redeemed our frequent-flyer points for as far as they would take us), and later this year, work will take Martha there again. I won't be able to make it, but it's on my list for a repeat visit, sooner or later. This aerial video will explain why!
Dot Dot Dot is Morse code for the letter 'S,' the full message Guglielmo Marconi claimed to have received atop Signal Hill in St. John's in 1901. It ushered in the age of telecommunications. My maternal grandfather worked as a telegraph operator for Canadian Marconi on Signal Hill for many years.
As well, I have a habit of overusing the ellipsis when I write ... as frequent readers might notice.
