Sunny Sunday

1a

“Big rain clouds had been rolling over the whole day with good gaps in between,” says photographer Sigurdur William Brynjarsson, who took the picture on Sept. 20th from Reykjanes, Iceland. “The Moon was almost full and aurora activity was picking up. I knew conditions were perfect to capture a lunar rainbow with the Northern Lights together.”

“I’ve never witnessed a lunar rainbow and lady Aurora dancing hand in hand before,” he adds. “What a night… =) ”

Now that autumn has arrived, rainclouds are mixing with auroras around the Arctic Circle on a regular basis. Those raindrops will turn into snowflakes as winter approaches. Until then, keep an eye on the photo gallery for more moonbows in the Arctic night.

    Sunny here. Rainbows are rare; auroras even rarer.

    So. I signed up for Anthem health insurance back in February

    $332 a month, what I used to pay for evil tobacco

    Did it because on my calendar is a recommended surgery, a partial parotidectomy, i.e., removing a painless, almost certainly benign, half a walnut size lump in my neck.. Without insurance, cost about 20k, with insurance, my cost about 7k.

    Got a letter today saying my monthly premium will increase by another $108 starting in January, so I’ll get it done sooner rather than later in case I feel the need to tell Anthem to fuck off

    Just got home from my Lansing lunch with my friends, Jill and Brian went and Jill paid my bill! WOO HOO! I had to Margaritas and Prime Rib, which was most excellent.

    Friend Snotty was wearing a “Black Lived Matter” T-shirt under her open jacket. When we were leaving, after 3 hours, the guy with the party next to us stopped her and showed her a picture on his phone, one I’ve seen on FB. It was a picture of two Labrador retrievers, one black and one white, with signs around their necks that said “All Labs Matter.” He told her he was a state cop.

    Snotty didn’t take offense to the guy (I did, of course) just said she would love to sit down with him to talk, to explain to him that state police don’t seem to be the problem, local police departments are.

    Damn, that prime rib was delicious. Mmmmm…..

    A slow 47 minutes counterclockwise to the Birch & Barley out in the clear 72 °F weather. Grasshoppers but only one bird and that briefly in the distance. Right foot becomes noticeable after some stick walking.

    Going down College Hill Climb one can see down to the informal used vehicle lot. For 3 years there was a school bus parked there. It disappeared over the summer to be replaced by the longest Class C I have ever seen and also a pickup with a camper. Both are gone and now there is a pair of new looking, identical, smaller delivery vans, the sort used by electricians and plumbers. Oh yes, there are plenty of more ordinary vehicles; turnover is fairly rapid during the school year.

      Even slower returning but arrived home just as the last light was going out of the sky; 97 minutes total for today. Saw a hawk giving up on finding an updraft and then a strange, stocky bird, almost crow sized, with a beak shaped like that of a puffin. A murder of crows flew over and after those departed the non-puffin did as well.

    Went to Reno today to look at a car that turned out to be a Tahoe rust bucket, passed on that one. on the way back there was a accident that stopped I80 for an whole hour, sat and waited, shut the van off after a bit, paramedics had a helluva time getting to the accident because the two-lane is real narrow for a few miles cars were squeezing over to the side, bumpkins-o-plenty everywhere, made it past the carnage and got moving again. That road sux, semis all over both lanes, downhill winding road a lousy 2 lanes wide, an Interstate, sheesh.

    We stopped at Cabelas, the prime source for all your hunting, fishing, and gunning needs. I have never seen so many stuffed wild animals in one place, sheesh, killing critters is BIG BIZ.

    I’m not a killer of critters, I enjoy their company, I don’t think I will go back there.
