    Hahaha. I never cared for the black, but I get addicted to the red. Yeah, this time of year puts lots of people into the blues. Just not enough sun. At least this year it's been a mild winter. I would assume it's mild up by you too.

That Certain Amount

by Captain Pike on 09-07-2012 at 11:39 PM

I love the sound of the train. Both, when it pulls into town signaling you could even tell the differences in the way the whistle is blown. The right person probably could distinguish who is the engineer for the evening. Not even just the train whistle, but sometimes I like to be near the tracks and just hear that clanking and grinding sound and feel the throb of all that power. Man has done

Still Hanging in There

by Captain Pike on 02-09-2012 at 07:57 PM
When I was a little kid, I had a bag of marbles. We used to play marbles outside in the dirt for hours. Can you imagine kids doing this today? We almost always went outside to play, unless the weather was really bad. I remember one day my friend Bruce Robinson and I climbed up to the top of a couple of young maple trees during a ferocious wind storm. We held on to those thin trees for dear life as the merciless wind buffeted us around. We were both screaming at the top of our lungs in real fear.

An Overdue Visitor

by Captain Pike on 04-27-2011 at 09:38 AM
Many years ago, my great friend John and I met a couple of young women and their companion, while traveling in Paris. The girls had obvious and natural attractions and their friend was a great guy whom I liked right off and we got together the next day and explored some more together. We wrote back and forth, this new fellow and I, for a while after I returned home to the US.

I Want to Travel

by Captain Pike on 10-01-2010 at 09:52 AM

I was reading today that they have found a star in the constellation Libra that has planets that could support life. One planet, in particular, is inside the, "Hospitable Zone".

Using the Doppler effect of light, they can measure the slightly changing hues in the color of the star to measure what's called, radial velocity, RV. RV is the movement along the line between it and us. By analyzing

The Ensconced Traveler

by Captain Pike on 10-23-2009 at 11:20 AM

I sit in my nook, reading the last of Robinson Crusoe (two syllables, by the way); the part where he travels by land now. He's had it with the Sea -- understandable. Anyway, I sit here, alone, with my grown-up son's abandoned but powerful computer humming away, and my big screen, my flatscreen monitor -- I chart his course of 400 years ago using Google's mapping software. I can imagine the French Pyrenees, separating the
