Roman Pyramid The burial pyramid for Gaius Cestius - built in the second decade BCE.  This is the top half - the bottom half is hidden because of restoration work that started in 2013.
Several weeks ago I posted a composite of shots of the bloom spike of this plant shooting through the roof of the conservatory at Matthaei Botanical Gardens (http://smu.gs/1yVQjTN)  For more than a week, blossoms on the lowest branches of the spike have been opening, releasing pollen and nectar.  The latter has been dripping down and making the ground sticky and slippery.  Here is another composite showing the plant's status as of last Friday.  DP203-2014  Posted July 22; created ditto from shots taken July 18 Full resolution versions of the four panels are in a gallery devoted to the arid plants in this conservatory, starting here:  http://smu.gs/WwBRDH  Title:  Blooming Update for Agave Americana 'Variegata'

July 22, 2014  Thanks for all the comments on yesterday's Sporting Clay shooting of my friend Todd.  Here's another shot of me, shooting at a different charity tournament, but the same course.  For those of you that are FB friends, you saw this shot posted a week or so ago + one of Bill.  I'll post his photo tomorrow.  I'm running short of time to process and post photos, so I may need to take a break for a few days.  I won't if I can find some time, but if you miss me ( :-) ) don't worry I'll be back.  Take care & have a colorful day today my friends,  Linda
07.22.14  AT Chemo.  Sewing a charm on Indigo. I liked the shadows.  I almost didn't get to do the infusion on Monday. My white blood cell count was 900--they like it over 1000. Dr. Khong was in and approved the infusion. Now I am waiting for medicaid to approve the very expensive shot to boost my WBC count. I need to have it twice. Hopefully on Wednesday and Thursday.  Sometimes they  are able to get approval for the patient to take the shots home and self induce (was the the word?) Because I give myself insulin, I could do that, but NOPE. I will have to make the 40-mile drive two days in a row.  Yes, I am feeling discouraged and distressed. I'll get over it and be smiling again soon.

Mitsubishi A6M5 Zero/Reisen/Zeke...  HISTORY  Completed in May 1943, Zero No 61-120 was the 2,357th aircraft of its type to come off the Nakajima production line and was first assigned to the Japanese Naval Air Corps on the home island of Honshu. In a few months, it moved to Iwo Jima, then in March 1944, was reassigned to Asilito Airfield on Saipan.  On June 18, 1944, U.S. Marines captured Asilito Airfield with a number of intact Zero fighters. A dozen of these intact Zeros were shipped to NAS North Island, San Diego, California, USA for evaluation. Four Zeros were restored to flight, two went to the Army Air Force and two were retained by the Navy.  The Museum’s Zero No 61-120 was ferried to NAS Patuxent River, Maryland on August 23, 1944 and subsequently flown by about 25 different USN, USMC, Royal Navy and civilian fighter and test pilots, including Charles A. Lindbergh. The aircraft was ferried back to San Diego on January 11, 1945, where frontline combat pilots were also given a chance to check out the Zero. Altogether, Zero No 61-120 logged over 190hr of flight time in the USA before being declared surplus after the war.  Zero No 61-120 wound up being sold for scrap, but Mr. Ed Maloney obtained it in 1951 for his Air Museum in Claremont, CA, which opened in 1957.  The Museum began restoring the Zero to flying condition in 1973 and after 4½ years it flew again on June 28, 1978.  DISTINCTION  The Museum’s Zero is the only fully authentic flyable example in the world.  Restored to flying condition in June 1978, this Zero fighter is still powered by its original Nakajima Sakae 31 engine.  It carries the same color scheme and markings it bore in combat for the Imperial Japanese Navy during the war.  After a successful flight-test program the Zero was shipped to Japan for a six-month tour of flight demonstrations.  Two tours have been made in Japan and is the only example of the type of Zero to have flown in Japan since the end of WWII.  Once flown by Charles A. Lindbergh at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland.
