Another reason to not mow the yard


Reasons to not mow the yard ...

Mower sparks fire that destroys house [multimedia] By Gina Gallucci-White News-Post Staff Originally published in the Frederick News-Post April 30, 2009

Combustible materials left too close to a warm yard tractor ignited and caused a fire that destroyed a house Wednesday afternoon, according to the Division of Fire and Rescue Services.

Deputy Fire Marshal Ed Ruck estimated damage to the house at 5702 Catoctin View Court and its contents at $400,000.

[…]

The house had to be evacuated twice because the fire compromised the structure and the floor was starting to collapse, Ruck said. Several tankers had to be called because there are no hydrants in the area.

Members of the American Red Cross were called to the scene to assist the residents, he said.

[…]

*****
McCabe & Mrs. Miller - McCabe (Warren Beatty) & Mrs. Miller (Julie Christie) meet for the first time

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g0hs77bu3gY





McCabe & Mrs. Miller, the unconventional 1971 western directed by veteran Robert Altman, could maybe best be described as "what reality TV would have looked like, if TV had existed back then". It's a very natural, bare bones, approach to film making, as if the audience gets a peek at the normal, every day doings of settlers in a new town. Warren Beatty is excellent in one of his best roles as John McCabe, small time entrepreneur and card player, who is riding on the reputation of some McCabe who - as the movie informs us - according to myth, is a legendary gunman. The McCabe who seeks residence in the newly developing town, however, is a far cry from the cowboys that we know from more conventional westerns.

But his mistaken identity helps him become the big man around town and soon he sets up several businesses, a whorehouse with possibly the most unattractive "chippies" ever put on celluloid being one of them.

This is mostly an atmospheric movie, that is filmed in chronological order, unlike most films. So, the actual sets were being built as the movie progresses, meaning they double as the expanding town. Beatty and Christie are excellent in their unassuming roles and all the bit players and extras deserve special compliments, as many of them were not real actors, but set builders and locals.

The wonderful and oddly fitting songs by Leonard Cohen complete this uniquemasterpiece. Also starring John Shuck, Rene Auberjonois and William Devane.

The Cure - Sinking 



Sinking

I am slowing down
As the years go by
I am sinking

So I trick myself
Like everybody else

The secrets I hide
Twist me inside
They make me weaker

So I trick myself
Like everybody else

I crouch in fear and wait
I'll never feel again...
If only I could remember
Anything at all

Song info: Lyrics and Music: Toni Stern and Carole King feat. Dina Carroll

Lyrics:

Stayed in bed all morning just to pass the time
There's something wrong here
There can be no denying
One of us is changing
Or maybe we've just stopped trying

And it's too late baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it

It used to be so easy living here with you
You were light and breezy
And I knew just what to do
Now you look so unhappy
And I feel like a fool

And it's too late baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died
and I can't hide it
And I just can't fake it

There'll be good times again for me and you
But we just can't stay together
Don't you feel it too
Still I'm glad for what we had
And how I once loved you

But it's too late baby, now it's too late
Though we really did try to make it
Something inside has died and I can't hide
And I just can't fake it

Don't you know that I...
I just can't fake it
Oh it's too late my baby
Too late my baby
You know
It's too late my baby

Red Eye at 500 by Matt Patterson


April 28, 2009

“Red Eye” has major cringe worthy moments… Matt Patterson has done a great job of making sense of this Fox show that more often than not, makes no sense – delightfully…

Often you just shake your head in disbelief and cover your eyes – and yet peak between your fingers. It is compelling, provocative and devoid of any socially redeeming value – and that is exactly why after watching it several times – you’re hooked. However, beware, admitting that you watch it has consequences and may subject you to ridicule. Whatever…

'Red Eye' at 500 by Matt Patterson Is there a stranger show on television than "Red Eye w/ Greg Gutfeld"? Careening between train wreck and brilliance (often within the same five minute segment), "Red Eye" has been providing necrophilia jokes and toilet humor alongside serious political commentary and biting social satire for over two years now.

Jackie Robinson, the great American experiment




Jackie Robinson, the great American experiment

By Kevin Dayhoff April 15, 2009

Photo credit: Published in LOOK, v. 19, no. 4, 1955 Feb. 22, p. 78. Photo by Bob Sandberg: Jackie Robinson swinging a bat in Dodgers uniform, 1954. (19550222 1954 Jrobinson.jpg)

Art: (19880412 283) "Baltimore Baseball" by Kevin Dayhoff

Folks have been asking where they may find my column on “Jackie Robinson, the great American experiment.”

The column appeared in both the Westminster Eagle and the Carroll Eagle: Thoughts turn to baseball and Jackie Robinson Published April 17, 2009 by Carroll Eagle, Westminster Eagle and Dayhoff: Recalling Jackie Robinson, the great American experiment Published April 15, 2009 by Westminster Eagle

Pasted below is the column as it filed…

My thoughts today turn to one of my very few sports heroes – Jackie Robinson. For it was today, April 15, in 1947, that Jackie Robinson broke the Major League Baseball color barrier that had begun in the 1880s.

Wearing a Brooklyn Dodgers uniform with the number 42, Robinson, to paraphrase sports writer William McNeil, made his debut in front of 26,623 baseball fans at the old Ebbets Field. Approximately 14,000 of the spectators in the stands were African-Americans.

The Dodgers won 5-3; however, the real winner that day was all of us.

It was about time. As Washington Post columnist Shirley Povich wrote on March 28, 1997: “Four hundred fifty-five years after Columbus discovered America, white America discovered that blacks could play major league baseball. The first definitive clue was offered by the fifth child of a Cairo, Ga., sharecropper who was selected for the daring racial experiment.”

A brief account by the Library of Congress reveals “Dodgers general manager Branch Rickey signed a contract with Robinson to play for the team on October 23, 1945. Robinson then spent a year on a minor league team to sharpen his skills.

“Rickey, who called the move baseball's ‘great experiment,’ chose Robinson because of his excellent athletic record and strength of character. The first player to ‘cross the color line’ would have to be able to withstand intense public scrutiny and to avoid confrontation even when met with insults and hostility.”

As an aside, Richey also deserves a special place in history for having the character and insight to make it all happen. According to Povich, breaking the color barrier “had become a cause. Rickey was a former player and later a team president with high morals and a religious bent.”

It is interesting to note that Richey’s strength of conviction caused him, in earlier years when he played the game as an American League catcher, to “steadfastly” refuse to play baseball on Sundays, according to Povich.

Richey’s baseball scouts found Robinson playing for the Kansas City Monarchs in the “Negro baseball leagues” in 1945.

Povich writes that Richey “warned Robinson of the insults and the racial slurs he would hear from both players and fans in every city in the league. ‘I want a player with guts — the guts not to fight back, to turn the other cheek,’ Rickey told Robinson…”

“Rickey's bargain was for Robinson to hold his temper for two years. After that he was his own man, free to combat prejudice any way he saw fit.”

Robinson, by all accounts, endured a great deal of horrific abuse. However, according to the Library of Congress account, “Not only was Robinson able to quell opposition to his presence on the field, but he quickly won the respect and enthusiasm of the fans.”

That same account says that Robinson “retired from baseball after the 1956 season with a lifetime batting average of .311 and the distinction of having stolen home an incredible 19 times. A legend even in his day, he was elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame in 1962, his first year of eligibility.”

I should note that Robinson is the focal point of one of my three favorite baseball trivia stories – two of the stories happened in April and involve the Dodgers, but do have anything to do with a baseball. The third involves a potato…

The first favorite baseball moment also took place on April 25, 1976. It was that day that outfielder Rick Monday of the Chicago Cubs dashed between two men in the Dodger Stadium outfield in Los Angeles and grabbed away an American flag that protesters were about to burn.

The other event, which involves Robinson, is memorialized by a statute in front of “KeySpan Park,” a minor league baseball stadium in Coney Island, Brooklyn, New York. The statute is of Dodgers shortstop Pee Wee Reese with his arm around Robinson.

Povich got the story behind the statute from New York Times’ writer Bob Herbert. In a game in Cincinnati: “As the crowd heaped abuse on Robinson, Reese called time and walked across the diamond and draped an arm around Robinson's shoulder, standing with him in defiance of the crowd's mood.

“It was at once a sentimental display of friendship for a beleaguered teammate and a resounding rebuke to the lackwits who could not come to terms with Jackie Robinson in a major league lineup.”

Povich notes that Roger Kahn, author of “The Boys of Summer,” said of the scene: “It gets my vote as baseball’s finest moment.”

And mine also.

And oh, the third story occurred on Aug. 31, 1987 and it involves a potato. Who knows the story? Tell us what you know of the “tater caper” in readers’ comments below.

That’s my two cents. What’s yours? Leave any comments here: Thoughts turn to baseball and Jackie Robinson Published April 17, 2009 by Carroll Eagle, Westminster Eagle and Dayhoff: Recalling Jackie Robinson, the great American experiment

Could more changes be in store for Facebook?


Report: Facebook to open up to developers by Steven Musil April 26, 2009

Facebook plans to announce at a developer event Monday that it will open up user-contributed information to third-party developers, according to a
report Sunday in The Wall Street Journal.

[…]

The move seems a continuation of APIs (application programming interfaces) Facebook
launched in February that let developers access content and methods for sharing in Facebook apps including Status, Notes, Links, and Video.

Of course, all this hinges on persuading Facebook's 200 million users to share their personal data, a topic that ruffled some feathers in February. Facebook users threatened to revolt after the company
announced changes to its terms of service

[…]

But facing a rebellion from thousands of users and a
possible federal complaint from the Electronic Privacy Information Center, the social-networking service returned to its previous terms.

Brian Lamb

I took some time out this evening to watch some C-SPAN. The moderator of the program, Brian Lamb was interviewing Christopher Hitchens, who I always find fascinating…

It reminded me of this piece I saw several weeks ago by
Paul Bedard, published on April 11, 2009 that “Even at 67, C-SPAN Boss Brian Lamb Isn't Slowing Down.” / Kevin dayhoff April 26, 2009

With 30 years under his belt, Brian Lamb isn't ready to retire just because he's 67. He still wants cameras in courts and in secret press gatherings


Sixty-seven must be the new 47 for C-SPAN's Brian Lamb. He's sounds as feisty as ever as he looks to expand the cable's reach to federal
courts and closed-door press events. When will he retire? "I have no idea," says the man behind the public service network that just turned 30. "I do enjoy it. I'm in good health and still have all the energy I ever had."

1971 "Smiling Faces Tell Lies" by "The Undisputed Truth"

1971 "Smiling Faces Tell Lies" by "The Undisputed Truth"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9I5mcaOm7KE



Smiling Faces was unsuccessfully originally recorded by the Temptations in 1971. Producer Norman Whitfield had the song re-recorded by the Undisputed Truth and released that same year, resulting in a number three Billboard Hot 100 Position. Smiling Faces was the ONLY top 40 single released by the "Undisputed Truth.

Lyrics
Smiling faces sometimes
pretend to be your friend
Smiling faces show no traces

of the evil that lurks within
Can you Dig it.

Smiling faces,
smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth
Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies
and I got proof
Oh Lord Yeah

Let me tell ya
The truth is in the eyes
Cause the eyes don't lie, amen

Remember
a smile is just a frown
turned upside down
My friend
So here me when I'm saying
Smiling faces, smiling faces sometimes
They don't tell the truth

Smiling faces, smiling faces
Tell lies
and I got proof

Beware,
beware of the handshake
That hides the snake
Can you dig it, can you dig it

I'm telling you
Beware
Beware of the pat on the back
It just might hold you back

Jealousy (jealousy)
Misery (misery)
Envy

I tell you, you can't see behind
smiling faces
Smiling faces sometimes
Hey, they don't tell the truth
Smiling faces,
smiling faces
Tell lies
and I got proof

Hey
Your enemy won't do you no harm
Cause you'll know where he's coming from
Don't let the handshake and the smile fool ya
Take my advice I'm only try' to school ya

smiling faces
Smiling faces sometimes
they don't tell the truth
Smiling faces,
smiling faces
Tell lies
and I got proof

Charlotte Douglas International Airport


Charlotte Douglas International Airport

Sunday, April 19, 2009

Flying in to Charlotte airport… Not quite like the Beatles’ song, but nevertheless…

Charlotte Douglas International Airport is owned and operated by the City of Charlotte and dates back to 1936. When it was first built, one of it claims to fame, according the airport’s web site history, in 1936, it that “it was a modern and spacious airport equipped with a radio beam.”

Dayhoff: Getting the Community Media Center out of the closet

Dayhoff: Getting the Community Media Center out of the closet

By Kevin Dayhoff,

Posted http://www.explorecarroll.com/ 4/21/09

Last Friday I had the pleasure of attending the rededication ceremony for the Carroll County Community Media Center.

More than 80 people attended, and it was a reunion for many of us who have watched this great community asset come out of a closet in a basement at what was then Western Maryland College to become a first-rate facility with many talented artists.

Marion Ware, executive director commented that “the rededication was to celebrate five years in this shared community resource… and to recognize all the people and organizations that have made the vision … of community and connections possible.”

The passion and the glory of grits


The passion and the glory of grits

April 17, 2009 - August 10, 2007 Kevin Dayhoff

Every locale and region in the United States has its iconic food. And so it is that I’d like to bring up the subject of grits, a much maligned and misunderstood delicacy. Grits are a path to the American dream. A food for “everyman,” of which there is a dearth of availability in Carroll County.

In a contemporary world in which we face so many complexities and challenges, perhaps the world would be better if Americans ate more grits.

We will never be able to ponder the depths of the value of this truly invaluable food.

Beyond a shadow of doubt grits are one of the food adaptations that have changed the world.

Zell admits ‘mistake’ in TribCo purchase

Zell admits ‘mistake’ in TribCo purchase

By:
Lorene Yue April 15, 2009 Crain’s Chicago Business

(Crain’s) —
Sam Zell admits that taking over Tribune Co. hasn’t gone according to plan and was a “mistake.”

“The definition if you bought something and it’s now worth a great deal less, you made a mistake,” he told Bloomberg Television on Wednesday. “And I’m more than willing to say I made a mistake. I was too optimistic in terms of the newspaper’s ability to preserve its position.”

The Chicago billionaire, who made his fortune from commercial real estate, was instrumental in taking the parent of the
Chicago Tribune and Los Angeles Times private through a complex deal that saddled it with $13 billion in debt. Tribune Co. filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December, a move Mr. Zell said in Wednesday’s interview was necessary to “stop the bleeding and preserve a great company.”

The process that Mr. Zell used to take Tribune private caught the attention recently of the U.S. Department of Labor, which last month subpoenaed the company for documents related to its Employees Stock Ownership Plan, now the sole owner of
Tribune Co.

Vivaldi’s spring by Kevin Dayhoff


Vivaldi’s spring

© Kevin Dayhoff

April 17, 2009
The image above is rare drawing of Antonio Vivaldi at work in his studio, in 1725, around the time he wrote “The Four Seasons.”

Let’s all hope that the recent warmer weather and sunshine are, in the words of Antonio Vivaldi, a sure sign that “springtime is upon us.”

Vivaldi, the famous Venetian Baroque music composer was born on March 4, 1678, in what was then known as the Republic of Venice. The son of barber, who later became a professional violinist; it is not well known that Vivaldi was ordained a priest in 1703. In September of that same year, he took a job as the violin teacher at Pio Ospedale della Peita – an orphanage, in Venice.

In 1725, he wrote, what is to many, his most famous work, “The Four Seasons”; a set of four violin concertos written to go long with four sonnets, which many historians believe he wrote himself.

Referred to as descriptive music, “The Four Seasons” were relatively revolutionary at the time and has influenced artists from many different media ever since. It is the ultimate collage – in this case, of music to describe words – the juxtaposition of various, otherwise disparate elements that come together to make a whole that has much more meaning than its individual components.

Although many are quite familiar with the music of Vivaldi’s “Spring,” few are familiar with the words: Spring – Concerto in E Major

Allegro: Springtime is upon us. The birds celebrate her return with festive song, and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes. Thunderstorms, those heralds of spring, roar, casting their dark mantle over heaven, then they die away to silence, and the birds take up their charming songs once more.

Largo: On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead, the goat-herd sleeps, his faithful dog beside him.

Allegro: Led by the festive sound of rustic bagpipes, nymphs and shepherds lightly dance beneath the brilliant canopy of spring.

Thornton Niven Wilder was born April 17, 1897, in Madison, Wisconsin.


Thornton Niven Wilder was born April 17, 1897, in Madison, Wisconsin.

“This is the way we were: in our growing up and in our marrying and in our living and in our dying.” “Our Town,” Act 1 - Thornton Niven Wilder was born April 17, 1897, in Madison, Wisconsin.

Library of Congress Today in History: April 17

Thornton Niven Wilder was born April 17, 1897, in Madison, Wisconsin. Arguably one of the greatest playwrights of the twentieth century, Wilder is the only writer to win
Pulitzer Prizes for both literature and drama.

Son of a U.S. diplomat, Wilder spent part of his childhood in
China. After serving in the Coast Guard during World War I, he earned his B.A. at Yale University in 1920. Six years later, his first novel, The Cabala was published. In 1927, The Bridge of San Luis Rey brought commercial success and his first Pulitzer Prize. From 1930 to 1937 he taught at the University of Chicago.

Wilder's dramatic works include the Pulitzer Prize winning plays Our Town and The Skin of Our Teeth. Set in fictional Grover's Corners, New Hampshire, Our Town (1938) employs a choric narrator called the "Stage Manager," and a minimalist set to underscore the universality of human experience. The Skin of Our Teeth debuted in 1942 with
Frederic March and Talullah Bankhead in the lead roles. The themes are familiar—war, pestilence, economic depression, and fire. Ignoring the limits of time and space, just four main characters and three acts are used to review the history of mankind.

Wilder authored seven novels, three major full-length plays, as well as a variety of shorter works including essays, one-act plays, and scholarly articles. Greatly transformed, his play The Matchmaker became the Broadway and film hit
Hello, Dolly!. His last novel, Theophilus North, was published in 1973. Wilder died in his sleep on December 7, 1975.

Wilder is just one of forty-one
authors and playwrights photographed by Carl Van Vechten and available in Creative Americans: Portraits by Carl Van Vechten, 1932-1964. Also available is a biography of Van Vechten.

Search the
Today in History Archive on writer to find additional features on American authors including pages on Wilder's contemporary F. Scott Fitzgerald and his good friend Gertrude Stein.

See what Wilder's contemporaries such as Orson Welles were doing in the theater. Visit the collection
The New Deal Stage: Selections from the Federal Theatre Project. Read four illustrated articles on the project to learn more about innovative theater of the 1930s.

Chambers Bros "Time Has Come Today"





Chambers Bros "Time Has Come Today"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JygvU2haTTo


This is the long version - - Of course, if you are really a child of the 1960s, you can’t remember any of it; so this is offered to help to jog your memory. Turn on the black lights, crank this up to 11 and for pity sakes, do not set off any smoke alarms. Warning, this may cause a “flashback.” If so, just curl up in a fetal position with pillows, avoid bright lights, grab a bowl of corn pops cereal, and ride it out.


A note about YouTube and copyrighted material:

This video brings back great memories… However better yet - I was elated to read in the description of this video: “Chambers Bros ‘Time Has Come Today’ UMG has allowed this copyrighted material to be posted.”

Finally, FINALLY, at least some folks are waking up to the marketing potential of music on YouTube videos.

I have been meaning to make a list of all the record companies that have made me swap-out audios on my YouTubes, (http://www.youtube.com/user/kevindayhoff) so that I may remember to never, EVER, buy any material from them.

I have been a full-time practicing artist for most of my life and I fully appreciate protecting intellectual property – but I also know that I will have little in the way of “intellectual property to protect, if no one knows about my art – OR worse yet, I act in a brutish and boorish manner protecting it…

Perhaps, someone can provide more information on what material “UMG” has available – I will make a point of buying some of it.

David W. Herlocker and the Westminster Main Street Mile

David W. Herlocker and the 28th running of the Westminster Main Street Mile

April 15, 2009

Earlier this evening was the 28th running of the Westminster Main Street Mile. The event went well, in spite of the rain. And of course, another reason the event went well, was because of the excellent hard work of Beth Weisenborn, the Westminster Road Runners Club Webmaster and Main Street Mile Registration Director.

Other folks were greatly contributed include: Bob Paczynski, Alan Gowen, Jim Beacham, Scott Kohr, Alan Gowen Lynn Richardson, Linda Morris, Debbie Leathers, Christine Webbert, Kim and Robert Muhl, Pam Gowen, Grant Hadden Bob Sommerville, Tim Gosnell, Chris Reese, Jack Klein, Caroline Babylon, Gorman Davis, Jack Klein, Scott Kohr, Alan & Pam Gowen, Robert & Kim Muhl, Grant Hadden, Debbie Leathers, Christine Webbert, Carole Williamson, and Sharon Larrimore… (Beth, who did I miss?)

But before, during and after the race, my thoughts were of Dr. Dave Herlocker…

Dr. Herlocker was one of the patriarchs of the annual Westminster Road Runners Club Westminster Street Mile. He passed away last Friday, March 21, 2008.

He passed away Friday, March 21, 2008 right before the 27th running of the event. The race will hardly be the same without him.

Dave Herlocker was a well-respected scientist, McDaniel College professor, runner, community leader, fellow member of Grace Lutheran Church and a good friend.

Below, please find a video tribute to Dr. Herlocker. Some of the initial pictures in this video are my additions. Later, this tribute consists of the video that the family and Fletchers Funeral Home put together.

A Tribute David W. Herlocker, 67, of Westminster


October 30, 1940 – March 21, 2008

_____

His obituary read:

David Webb Herlocker, 67, of Westminster, died unexpectedly but peacefully at his home on Friday, March 21, 2008.

Born October 30, 1940 in Chicago, Illinois, he is the son of Donald Herlocker and the late Betty Comfort Herlocker. He was raised in Peoria, Illinois.

He was a 1962 graduate of Knox College and graduated from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in 1966 with a doctorate in inorganic chemistry.

In 1966, he began a long career teaching chemistry at Western Maryland College, now McDaniel College. He served as the Chemistry Department chair department chair for many years. He retired in 2006 and was named an emeritus faculty member. He was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, the American Chemical Society, and other professional organizations.

He began running in the mid 1970s and was a member of the Westminster and York Road Runner Clubs. He was an organizer of many road races in and around Westminster, including the Main Street Mile. After an accident in 1995 left him unable to run, he continued to walk daily with friends. He was a recognizable figure at many races with his loyal canine companion, Badie.

He was a long-time member of Grace Lutheran Church and served on the church council and scholarship committee. He was active in Ardent Folk, a ministry providing meals to those in need.

He was a member of the parent organizing committee which founded the Westminster Montessori School in 1974. He helped to develop and implement the school’s chemistry curriculum. Since his retirement he has volunteered weekly in their science classes.

An avid sports fan, he followed the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, and the McDaniel women’s basketball and volleyball teams. He was a 27-year member of a book club and a lover of history and trivia.

Remembering him are children and partners Caryn Herlocker Meade and Adam Meade of Raleigh, NC and Daniel Herlocker and Ellen Keelan of Brattleboro, VT; father Donald Herlocker of Canton, IL; brother and sister-in-law William and Hilda Herlocker of Kildeer, IL; sister and brother-in-law Linda and Peter Speck of Wanganui New Zealand; grandchildren Evan and Georgia Meade; former wife and friend Helen Herlocker; and numerous friends.

A memorial service will be held 11 a.m. on Tuesday, March 25, 2008 at Grace Lutheran Church, 21 Carroll St, Westminster with his pastors Rev. Kevin and Martha Clementson officiating.

Inurnment of ashes will be in Grace Lutheran Church Columbarium.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Grace Lutheran Church in support of the Ardent Folk social ministry.
