Yet another Seattle Software funded space initiative... The first successful one was funded by Microsoft/VulcanVentures Paul Allen. This one by Amazon's Jeff Bezos.

So, when is the rest of the country going to get around to moving toward the 21st Century and not back toward the 15th? We're getting awfully tired of dragging all of you, kicking and screaming in the right direction.


I suppose that's why Boeing moved to Chicago. Or maybe it's the gray permacast. Or all the Californians attracted to the NW by all the monopolistically garnered software wealth.
One thing the NW does NOT have is one school with BOTH the FOOTBALL AND BASKETBALL Division I National Championship titles.


Nah. Boeing stayed in Seattle. The Executive Office Building moved to Chicago because the CEO's wife was from there. Confusing the CEO's wife's interests with the best interests of the company is why Boeing never quite seems to get it right despite being the only commercial aircraft manufacturer in the US.

Face it, they only compete with the French who give their workers a month paid vacation per year and they still can't beat them.


I knew you'd rise to the Boeing bait ;-)

Seen at low tide

  • American White Pelican
    Saw 30 in one flock on a weptember evening while fishing
  • Hummingbird
    Finally, my first hummingbirds. Saw them on a fire bush in Crystal Beach, FL. My rental's neighbor's yard is all xeriscaped, which is ugly to me but just fine with the little hummers. At first, I thought they were the biggest hornets I'd ever seen.
  • Flamingo!
    One of these dudes flew right over my house. I couldn't believe it. And please don't tell me it was a roseated spoonbill because it was a frickin' flamingo, dude! Huge and pink and right there above me. I was like so freaking out, you know?
  • Falcon!
    Don't see these guys too often. Wish we did. Bet the morning doves don't.
  • Black Skimmer
    These beauties are getting scarce, but one flew by yesterday at low tide on the hunt for minnows.
  • Dead sea turtle
    cool, but smelly
  • Reddish Egret
    These have been hanging out around the pool quite a bit lately. Must be a new group of adolesent birds -- the youngsters like to hunt where the water is clear, and it takes them a day to figure out there are not now and never will be fish in the swimming pool no matter how clear the water.
  • Sand Piper
  • Brown Pelican
    I saw a flock of about 200 of these at Disappearing Island yesterday, just south of Anclote Island on the west coast of FL. Good to see such a large flock.
  • Wood Pecker
    They've developed a sudden interest in the orange tree, which just went into bloom.
