As it is now Sakura (cherry blossom) season in Tokyo my wife sent me these photos and I would like to share them with all of you. Hope you like them as well!? ;)

wow.... Nature is beautiful in it's simplicity and complexity.

Once upon a time my family went to Washington DC to visit and catch the cherry blossoms but due to odd weather (even back then), the blossoms did not come out for another two weeks -- long after we went back home.

I believe the cherry trees in DC were a gift from Japan as well! I would love to see Japan in the spring. Pictures can never do justice. Thank your wife for us Yoshio. They are quite beautiful.

In the spirit of contemplating other dimensions, maybe our universe is the result of a couple of sub-dimensional hooligans goofing off with a drill, some food-coloring in condoms, and a high speed camera .

Probably not. But the disking effect is reminiscent of a solar system or galaxy structure.

While poking around at Christopher Lee's works I discovered that he was a different count before playing Dooku. And that's Grand Moff Tarkin (Peter Cushing) as Van Helsing.

Have a long sleep, good count. RIP

A little more amusement.

Ah yes... I watched those Hammer films. Lee played Frankenstein's monster as well as the infamous Count from Transylvania. And it was always a kick to see Peter Cushing be his Van Helsing-ing self. That was the peak of the Hammer era of films. Lots of technicolor blood back then.

I've been watching this guy for years; lived in the woods, built a big (6-legged) spider robot, moved to the tropics, now he owns an island. Really interesting guy with an inspiring drive to make things happen.

Link in case video doesn't work for ye.



The pep talk at about 7:30 is particularly good. If you're bored, skip to that. :cheer:
