A couple of Flickr Slideshows

Flickr recently changed the format of its website, and one of the parts that seems to have changed is the slideshow feature. I can no longer find the link to embed slideshows, so I dug up the html from an older post, one with the Star Dieppe arriving on the Budd Waterway, and used that as a template to post a couple shows of most recent sets, one from a hike to Lower Lena Lake, and another from the Peace Vigil last Friday, where there were dense, dark, dramatic clouds.

Natural resources, what's the cost, what is gained, what is lost? What's it gonna look like in the end? Will the trees be all gone? Will we be blowing in the wind? Hey Mr. Business Man, where you get all those trees, owning them and selling them, how, how, how, now?!

Photo Essay

I was looking for a photo in my flickr stream, and came across a few from 2010 springtime. I also came across others from different times.

Not all of these are necessarily directly related, some are just interesting ones, and it is in three parts.

On the Program

I was on the Your Daily Hour With Me TCTV program a couple weeks ago, on the second of May, the program includes some footage of the MV Star Dieppe, a cargo ship arrival in Budd Inlet to deliver to the Port of Olympia ceramic proppants for fracking. That episode is one hour in length, and is posted to the internet on YouTube here.

I was on the program again today 20130515 (Wednesday 15 May.) After turning on the tapes we talked for about an hour about various topics, including religion and politics, psychology and ecology, industry and environment, wealth and poverty. It felt good, we had some laughs, and despite a couple of technical difficulties, we made a few phone calls, including to Elder Gordon and Elder Hill, Missionaries with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I had fun. That program is scheduled to air in a week from now, on Wednesday the 22nd of May, at 11:30pm on TCTV Channel 22.

Here the video from the 2nd of May is also embedded in this here blog post:
