Still “Winter Isolated” here in northern New Jersey, this morning I captured this image from our window, reminding me (obliquely?) of the classic Mamas and Papas song of forlorn love in the 1960s, here. And yes …those are still our trees in the foreground!
Thanks for viewing, and maybe even listening. Comments are always welcome. M 🙂
Above: “Bounce,” an early envisioned form of nuclear deterrent.
We’ve been busy cleaning out our attic, including boxes and boxes of old high school and college workbooks and paraphernalia. Lurking in the margins and edges of these otherwise “academic” journals are the innermost and most provocative thoughts and revelations of higher education …the DOODLES!
The Cuban Missile Crisis, Vietnam, Woodstock, Social Pressures and Change – Doodles.

The lunar eclipse here along the New Jersey shore last night was stunning – but so was the windy and frigid weather following a dramatic arctic cold front, …making my camera and my fingers frozen.
After I admitted defeat with the cameras, I went back outside with just my heavy gloves and binoculars, where the fully eclipsed moon, high above, was awesome, beautifully colorful and surrounded by the winter stars.
As the earth’s shadow is cast upon the lunar surface, its temperature drops hundreds of degrees. Here at our house, it seemed the temperature dropped just as much, from 50 degrees (F) at about noon yesterday to 7 (F) degrees this morning, with a wind chill of at least -11 degrees as shown below at 7:21 AM.

This is my coffee cup. It dates back to my career days, which brought me, in part, inside the world of newspaper production – including the Gannett Company, a major publisher of newspapers and “USA Today” with distribution worldwide.
I’ve always admired itsbrand LOGO, which first appeared in the early 1980s when “USA Today” was introduced. That iconic newspaper was eventually printed and distributed pretty much simultaneously at numerous facilities across the United States, and in Europe. All print sites produced the same content, which was uploaded to satellites from the company headquarters just outside Washington DC. and received by the local print/distribution sites. Accordingly, this wonderful logo imaged not only the “G” covering the world but, the black image of an uplink-downlink “state of the art” satellite communications antenna.
As usual, thanks for viewing, and comments are required. No, no, just WELCOMED! Click-on or finger-stretch for a closer view. M 🙂
