It's not a prime number. 1001. But it's a lot of posts. I have a few photos from the last several days while I was taking a break from blogging to commemorate a thousand and now I'm beginning the second thousand. I have some photos from several trips to Como Park, where I often walk for exercise and to appreciate the natural and near natural areas around the lake and the Conservatory.
I caught a bee at work on this orange flower at the butterfly garden near the frog pond at Como.
The Olympics begins on Friday. I guess there will be a pretty good tennis tournament at Wimbledon as part of the competition. I'm looking forward to watching some of the competition, hoping that NBC will squeeze some of the good matches into their coverage. I'm planning to watch some of the events on the internet. It is reported that all the events will be available on line. It would be pretty nice if Andy Murray could win the singles, since he's been stymied in his efforts to win Wimbledon in the best of five set format that is used in tennis grand slam events. In the Olympics winning two of three sets is enough.
I enclose a video that I encountered on the Discover Magazine site. It's one of the earliest uploads of non-text data to the internet - purportedly. It's a bevy of beauties from CERN singing a do-wop song to the scientist boy friends in their lives who prefer their collider to them. It also has a section featuring Cray computers from the early nineties when I was doing software for the same machines. Very nice memories for me.
