The Green Heron

From a distance, the Green Heron is a dark, stocky bird hunched on slender yellow legs at the water’s edge, often hidden behind a tangle of leaves. Seen up close, it is a striking bird with a velvet-green back, rich chestnut body, and a dark cap often raised into a short crest. These small herons crouch patiently to surprise fish with a snatch of their daggerlike bill. They sometimes lure in fish using small items such as twigs or insects as bait.

Andy Weir

Andy Weir has a background in computer science. He began writing the book in 2009, researching the book to be as realistic as possible based on existing technology.[5]Weir studied orbital mechanics, astronomy, and the history of manned spaceflight.[7]
Having been rebuffed by literary agents, Weir put the book online for free at his website.[5] At the request of fans he made a Amazon Kindle version available at 99 cents (the minimum he could set the price).[

This Aqua, a skyscraper in Chicago. I watched it go up during my yearly visit to Chi-town. I knew I liked it and it was confirmed by a recent article in the New Yorker about Jeanne Gang the architect who with her team designed and built it. We ate dinner at the restaurant which is Italian and very good...except I spilled red wine all over the table and MA's white pants.  I love the Chicago buildings...sure NYC has great buildings but they seem to be so close that they are hard to appreciate. Not Chi-town.

not Granuloma Annulare

Granuloma Annulare not.
I had multiple opinions...first dermatologist thought it was GA, I was agreeable because at first it did look like good treatment for GA but I tried any one I could find.  2nd and 3rd dermatologists fungal skin organisms seen.  Treated myself anyway with Lamsil and now( not above ) it is gone...not before it got in the follicles of my eye lashes and eye brows....which also cleared with the anti fungal.
