Fears meltdown has begun as radiation spreads - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

Fears meltdown has begun as radiation spreads - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation):

"Meanwhile, IAEA head of nuclear safety and security Denis Flory says he has heard there might be 'recriticality' at the Fukushima plant, in which a nuclear chain reaction would resume, even though the reactors were automatically shut down at the time of the quake.

He says this could lead to more radiation releases but it would not be 'the end of the world'.

'Recriticality does not mean that the reactor is going to blow up,' he said.

'It may be something really local. We might not even see it if it happens.'"

TVKim- Watching: Kim's Picks- 1000fps with an 800mm lens

another version of a picture i've had kicking around for awhile. after 25 years of using photoshop i am still awed by it's depth.

watched the first basketball game i've seen in a  year or so yesterday. good game. around here there is no question that one roots for UNC and they put up an extremely good fight against kentucky which if they keep playing like they did yesterday are unbeatable.

this morning's manifestation. when i woke up i thought it was monday. guess i'll try to catch UNC game now that it is reaching penultimate p0hase.

acrylic, i think the 2nd i painted, finished late last year?

this morning a little on the overcast chilly side. a stay inside day; like to have new image display and music page done by the end of the day. as well as wash sweaters, fid prescription for glasses (old - most recent - pair of glasses fell apart last week.

Friday, March 25, 2011

ho-hum. nice day for a walk. or talk. dancing would be nice but i hung up my dancin' shoes. a good book? motorcycle trip?

i guess i'll just look for lost objects.

Thursday, March 24, 2011

yesterday's front yard. shot RAW and played with it.

then the wind and clouds and rain moved in. this morning cold.

still trying to discombobulate pc running xp. right now no audio recording, could be fixed i think by downloading and installing asio4all, but downloading anything doesn't work. wasting way more time than i got with this thing. other solutions necessary.

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

been flat as a pancake recently. low energy. i do persist in plodding along though, no will power involved, just a habit. make what you will out of today's cryptogram (above), i can't. have a prototype music page begun, you can check it out  here.

another shot from the mountain saturday. i had thought to drive to chapel hill this week but am thinking now of getting myself in working order first.  after that maybe i hope trip to meher center and hit chatham county on the way back.

taken yesterday. really pleasant equinox - or was it solstice? - potluck yesterday, lots of beautiful children, music around the fire, and supermoon. hard to beat.

Saturday, March 19, 2011

supermoon. that's what did it what ever it did. still around. going to charlie and myria's hilltop today for theequinox, potluck, children, firecircle, amps set up, play music. i've decoded to include in this post a lengthy article ffowarded from macon whereever he is that may be of some interest:

my favorite niece anne. will spend today very precisely and methidically packing for overnight equinox camping. weather is perfect.

Thursday, March 17, 2011

now for something completely different. my 3rd attempt at acrylic, in progress, really doing nothing but seeing what the paint does. believe it will change bigtime but i'm putting it away for now.

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

best i could do this morning. i'm flat as a pancake.

Tuesday, March 15, 2011

rainy chilly morning. not much to say. got midi working on pc soundcard conundrum, but still no audio recording.

Monday, March 14, 2011

today's jumble. i am suddenly hit with the realization (again) that now is the time to get out and about as old lady cantabury used to say. this coming saturday is equinox potluck at charlie and moriya's and probably camp out in truck, tent or yurt. so the week is dedicated to getting ready to do this which i'm not. assembling gear and supplies, stowing them neatly and so forth. seriously thinking of driving to the Mehr Center next week and then coming back via the triangle.

nice ride yesterday, beautifuearly spring day, a real change from earlier in the week when it was the tail end i hope of a not awful winter, but damp and chilly. courtesy of richard we rode to chataloochie, took a few strolls, visited some camp sites on big creek that were really attractive this time of the year, not congested at all, the gray and pale brown ambience full of air not leaves, gleams and glows of moss. big creek was up and i noticed more backwards running standing waves then i ever have, all miniature. now i have to make something of ths second fair weather day, a long walk seems in order.

Friday, March 11, 2011

was going to cataloochie but very wintery out, trip postponed. puttering today: work on a new music page, an acrylic, clean truck interior, get rid of a lot of books and watercolor magazines, a trip to the pharmacy, and find a few missing objects.

Thursday, March 10, 2011

broke a hard drive this afternoon. can't face the results at the moment.

Wednesday, March 9, 2011

picture a day keeps the doctor away. since recovering from flu and brochitus i've been slowly resetting. trying to keep house in order. projects sputtering along: large acrylic painting my 3rd i think; attempting to reorganize image gallery, new music page instead of links scattered over the web. been dinkin' with PC, attempting to get it back to the place where i can record and edit music. ho-hum.
