I rode a sloth (with Dad's help) at the La Brea Tar Pits. (OK, this was April.)

robin made up
Robin had her hair and makeup done by a fancy salon who used her as a model.

tracy headlands
We had a nice picnic at the headlands after visiting the de Young.

new room
I've created a shrine to Art Nouveau over my bed in my new room.

blossoms fallen on azalea buds
I visited the UW arboretum on my last free day before starting work since it was a gorgeous, hot day.

red azalea and fern
A huge patch of the arboretum was devoted to different varieties of azaleas, separated into the historical periods of hybridization. This red flower was from the 60s-70s.

three turtles
I saw these turtles as I followed an indistinct path along the waterfront.

spinnakers in front of the Olympics
Saturday, I rode the other direction to a beach with a grand view of these sailors in front of the Olympics. The hill back up was a challenge.

2008 Secular Humanist Calendar

It's almost halfway through the year, which means it must be time to post the 2008 secular / scientist / humanist / atheist calendar I made. (I thought I posted it back in January, when I made it, but apparently not.) It includes secular, humanist, national, and environmental holidays and events; natural events (including moon phase); birthdates of important scientists; and some important historical events.
