One Man Did The Right Thing..


 Daniel Penny,

 The lawyers have set up a GIVESENDGO donation for his defense


Good for them, I'm sure "go fund me" would have canceled one if they set one up there. 

They have raised almost a million dollars for his defense.

 From the fund:

 Daniel Penny is, a twenty-four-year-old college student and decorated Marine veteran, facing a criminal investigation stemming from him protecting individuals on a NYC subway train from an assailant who later died. Funds are being raised to pay Mr. Penny’s legal fees incurred from any criminal charges filed and any future civil lawsuits that may arise, as well as expenses related to his defense. All contributions are greatly appreciated. Any proceeds collected which exceed those necessary to cover Mr. Penny’s legal defense will be donated to a mental health advocacy program in New York City.  

(My bold, I think this is a waste of money. It will be squandered and looted and not be used to properly address the situation of mental health in NYC.  They would be better off donating the extra proceeds to a veterans group that has a proven track record of helping those in need.)

"The Hardest Part Is Taking That First Step"... Annie Wilkins


 I just happened up this story the other day.

 It's amazing what you can do when you just up and say eff-it. 

What's sad is, Here we are, 70 years later, and most likely, there is no way you could ever do this. 

In 1954, sixty-three-year-old Maine farmer Annie Wilkins embarked on an impossible journey. She had no money and no family, she had just lost her farm, and her doctor had given her only two years to live. But Annie wanted to see the Pacific Ocean before she died. She ignored her doctor’s advice to move into the county charity home. Instead, she bought a cast-off brown gelding named Tarzan, donned men’s dungarees, and headed south in mid-November, hoping to beat the snow. Annie had little idea what to expect beyond her rural crossroads; she didn’t even have a map. But she did have her ex-racehorse, her faithful mutt, and her own unfailing belief that Americans would treat a stranger with kindness.
Annie, Tarzan, and her dog, Depeche Toi, rode straight into a world transformed by the rapid construction of modern highways. Between 1954 and 1956, the three travelers pushed through blizzards, forded rivers, climbed mountains, and clung to the narrow shoulder as cars whipped by them at terrifying speeds. Annie rode more than four thousand miles, through America’s big cities and small towns. Along the way, she met ordinary people and celebrities—from Andrew Wyeth (who sketched Tarzan) to Art Linkletter and Groucho Marx. She received many offers—a permanent home at a riding stable in New Jersey, a job at a gas station in rural Kentucky, even a marriage proposal from a Wyoming rancher. In a decade when car ownership nearly tripled, when television’s influence was expanding fast, when homeowners began locking their doors, Annie and her four-footed companions inspired an outpouring of neighborliness in a rapidly changing world.

Go Say Hi.. Someone came up for air...

Regarding the satellite fire map.. I see there were a few displeasures comments.


Here is the view when I went to it today.

IF you play around on the different setting pages there are a ton of different toggles that can be turned off and on and data that can be changed.  You can also open up the hamburger in the upper left hand corner and see more toggles for data.  I have no idea what data points were being shown on the "end of the world" fire map snap shots I posted yesterday.


Below this image is on with the aerosols map layer turned on. You can still see large residuals in Canada and less in New England.

To get there I turned on the "layers" tab and clicked on OMPS Aerosols  The little "i" toggle defined what that is in the snapshot below.

Poke around on the site if you like. See what you can find <<<

I may go back to my earlier post and see how it was configured to give all those data points.

One way or another..
