More Dali

As promised yesterday, a few more photos taken at the Salvador Dali exhibit at the Messmer Gallery in Riegel, Germany. Clicking on an image should enlarge it. I have lots more photos, but think this will be it for the prints. Tomorrow a couple of the sculptures. Advertisements

Generating Controversy

After more than three decades together you would think a rock band would have lost its ability to stir up controversy, especially inadvertently. Therefore, I was surprised to see Stryper in the news because Walmart refused to carry their latest album, objecting to the title. I must admit, when I saw the news report and […]

It seems fitting therefore to repeat my thoughts on The Hip and Gord Downie that were published here 14 months ago. END OF THE ROAD? August 20, 2016 Tonight Canada pauses. The Olympics are forgotten. Wars […]
