For Valentines Everywhere
The Phil Seymour Band
will be playing Valentines Day in the evening for the Shasta Blues
Society as the opening act for the Thursday Blues Jam. I will try to
select a few romantic blues songs for our playlist.
It was another picture perfect day here in Redding, at the Treehouse Apartments.
I had a chance to try some more experiments with the FZ35, and the results were encouraging.
John and I
started writing another promising new song today. Fortunately, when we
get these ideas, I record them. Otherwise, some of the best parts would
be forgotten before they stick in our brains.
Did I mention
that I am learning how to set the controls on the new/used camera, the
way I like them? I took this picture of the moon tonight with one of the
aperture settings that I have used on the other FZ cameras. I am so
pleased with the result I would jump up and down with ecstatic glee,
except it would not please my downstairs neighbor, or my back.
This newly opened
rose along the driveway seemed to light up for the lens today. It must
know I will use one of it’s profiles for a valentine before this night
is an article about silk moths that were trained to drive a robot car
that I was going to write about last night. Yes, it’s true. The
researchers placed a bit of female moth pheromone in one corner of the
test area, then put male moths on a control wheel that could steer the
robot car. The moths learned quickly and drove right to the scented
was interesting to me, were the tests where the steering was skewed to
pull to one side. The moths figured out how to compensate for the flaw,
and drove the car to the target. That is some powerful perfume and those
are some determined moths.
to put the video on here, last night, but since the new improvements to
YouTube, embed functions got disabled on many peoples channels, without
them knowing. Until that gets resolved, you can click on this LINK to read the article and see the moths drive.
Be Kind, Be Happy
