After ten years on the air I'm considering giving up my radio show. I just don't look forward to doing my show every week the way that I should. And I'm beginning to feel guilty about taking up a primo spot for so long when so many people want it. But another part of me can't imagine not being on the air, learning about world music, and hanging out with all the wonderful, crazy people at KZSU.

Perhaps I'm just in a rut. Maybe I need to take a quarter off from world music and play blues. Or do a funk show. I'm not sure. And I haven't made any decisions yet....just thinking.

Today is Bosworth Field Day. On this day in 1485, Richard III, the last Plantagenet King of England, was slain at the Battle of Bosworth Field by Henry Tudor, later Henry VII. Don't believe Shakespeare. Old Will was wrong about Richard. He was neither a hunchback nor a murderer. Don't believe me? Find out for yourself. The white rose was the symbol for the House of York, of which Richard was a member.

Photo of the day: The Escape Artist

She's figured out how to slide open the cage door and she's determined to get out. Hilarious to watch in action. It takes all four feet plus her mouth but she's getting better, and faster, at it. We now have to keep the door clipped shut so she can't go all Houdini on us.

Photo of the day: Openings

I think I managed to concuss myself in the middle of last night. It's a bit fuzzy but I think I was trying to avoid stepping on the cat and ended up going head-first into the fridge. I have a heck of a bump and it's nicely red and ugly. In a few days it will probably look like Husband has been knocking me around. I say the "concussed" part rather than just "whacked the hell out of my head" because I was really groggy this morning and, in fact, have no recollection of Husband kissing me goodbye. However, dear friends, I am fine (this is just one of the hazards of being a klutz) and this statement has nothing to do with today's photo. Just thought I'd mention it.

Wishing you all a bump-free day.

Photo of the day: Looking Up

Never underestimate the photograph possibilities of an airport. I could have shot several hundreds of shots were I not on the lookout for my soon-to-be-returning husband.

Catching Up
If zombies attack, we are all hosed according to science

$10 million dollars because Hondas aren't tornado proof? Lady, you can't sue people because you're a fucking idiot.

Who says teenagers aren't brainy? How about classes in riding the bus.

This little guy is in the classic "I'm gonna pounce" position, just waiting for some unexpected prey to appear. I think he attacked one of his littermates about 10 seconds after this shot.
