You may find this video disturbing. A 4-year-old Arkansas girl fell out of the back door of a moving church bus, and the accident was caught on the dash cam of a volunteer firefighter who happened to be following the bus. The girl suffered a broken jaw, facial lacerations, and a concussion, but she is expected to make…
Not many details, except that this happened outside COTA as the fire truck was heading back from working the Moto GP. Thank god there wasn’t anybody in the passenger seat. Driver suffered minor injuries.
Rehearsing Madame Butterfly. The plastic shield is so I don’t kill the second bassoon player.

With the Blackhawks summary dismissal from the NHL playoffs last night, I have changed my avatar back to Lego Schumi. Full credit to Nashville. They outplayed the Hawks from the first drop of the puck in Game 1, Rinne was amazing (and, it must be said, so was Crawford, by far the best Blackhawk every night), and the…
Cockpit video from a Canadiar CL-415 topping off from the Rio Douro while fighting fires in Portugal. I would have loved to have seen this from the ferry boat.
I had both my Hondas in the dealership for scheduled maintenance this week. As always, it was a good experience. I’ve got a fantastic service advisor, and I gave him a glowing review on the dealership survey. But I just got this email from the dealership:
He got fired for allegations of sexual harassment. This has really been a long time coming, though.
And while I’m at it, fuck UPS too. And fuck Amazon. Sure, they’ll replace it, but they won’t ship it any other way than UPS and they can’t/won’t tell UPS to hold it for a signature. I said to the humanoid robot on the phone, “Well, as long as Amazon is happy to continue replacing the item, you can continue to ship it…
This is the title page to a book of trumpet etudes (studies) that I downloaded. I think I’ve got “12 Fantasy Etudes for Trumpet or Baritone”, but I’m interested in the author and the bits at the bottom. I can make out the 1938 just fine.

He doesn’t need to have an inset of himself in the corner, but he would like to record his gameplay as well as his voice. Is there a…
My brother-in-law drove one of these in yellow for many years. He’s the outdoorsy type, and he said that he enjoyed the functionality of what is arguably one of the ugliest vehicles ever foisted on humanity. So my question is, would you drive something that is hideous if it gave you the functionality you required?

I will put it back to Lego Schumi when the Blackhawks hoist the Cup again. Of course, being a historian at heart, I went with the 1956 logo.
