Waikiki Beach at Cape Disappointment. Yes, the cliffs are basaltic like those in Hawaii, but the spot was named for a Hawaiian sailor who lost his life here in a shipwreck (one of many). How does a place get a name? Cape Disappointment and [...]

Almost a year since we completed on our house in Settle. The garden is a bit over-occupied. Being not that large and yet with 5 woodland trees it has an almost continuous canopy to offset its unremittingly sunny aspect. It is similarly full of [...]

The New Tilting Buildings

Just saw a story on the BBC that Scotland has banned GMO crops. I wonder if they know that every crop growing there now has been genetically modified by humans and nature countless times? The folks that passed the ban have been genetically modified [...]
