Super. Blue. Blood. Moon. Eclipse.

Moonrise through clouds.

Eclipse at moonset.

Yesterday we had a glorious sunrise, stunning sunset, and a rare moon event. So cool!

March On

 Saturday was a gorgeous day to practice democracy and exercise free speech--we did it with 37,000 others here in San Diego (not as many as last year, but still a LOT)!

Tons of cool/funny/vulgar but funny/meaningful signs. It's an emotional thing to be with so many like-minded folks.

See everyone next year! Perhaps we'll be celebrating in 12 months!

 Can't you just hear a trumpet fanfare?
These amaryllis blossoms are saying, "We are here!"

Celebrity Meetup

This is the Calista the pitbull--she is an Instagram superstar, and we got to meet her yesterday!

She was rescued four years ago in Phoenix--a police officer found wandering the streets with her ears savagely torn, filthy, in bad shape (there is speculation that she was used as a bait dog for dog fighting). Her ears were in such terrible shape that they could not be saved, so she is now, as her humans have dubbed her, an "earflapless pittopotamus." Here is her story posted on The Dodo website.
 She is the sweetest girl, greeting everyone--and there was a LARGE crowd--with happy tail wags.
 Look at those soulful eyes!
 She is a testament to the unbounded love and forgiveness with which dogs gift us (often unworthy) humans.
This pup was also there...
(This dog, I think, is an example of canine love and PATIENCE!).

New Year Berries

Even in January, the strawberry plant doesn't quit...these were so delicious, by the way--they smell and taste of strawberry!

Hot Cocoa

 This is Cocoa. She is a very good girl who would like some food, please and thank you.
 Please? Thank you! food given.

She is the brewery dog at Bay City Brewing, and she is a total sweetheart (she reminds me of Violet, my friend's dearly departed chocolate lab).
