A london plane tree to be exact…
Today, Saturday, March 31, 2018, I was exploring the back by-ways that would allow me to arrive at my favorite gluten-free bakery in London all the while avoiding the mess of Oxford Street when I found this new post-modern contemporary contemporary building in Fitzrovia with a poor, pre-leafed out London plane tree standing bravely in the rain defending the neighborhood from the Borg.
Good job, Plane Tree. I still have my own mind and life.

Photo of the Marble Arch at Dusk taken on Fri. Nov. 10, 2017 approximately a half hour after sunset when all the lights would be on but still some light in the sky for the Black & White No Explanation Challenge on Instagram. This is the original color photo before I used the Instagram editing features to make it B&W to post on that site.

Yesterday, my brother’s girlfriend Christine and I were discussing various bits as I read out news headlines from the Guardian at large.
Me: Ooooh.. front page… a man is hoarding snakes.
Christine: He is a teacher from Costa Mesa.
Me: The Guardian is a newspaper based in London.
Christine: He is a teacher. Probably from Costa Mesa.
Me, clicking through to the article and reading the main headline: Oh. He. Is. A. Teacher. And he is hoarding over 400 dead and dying snakes.
Christine: SEE! I TOLD YOU SO! I know hoarders, they are are always teachers. I watch hoarding on TV, they are always teachers.
Me, continuing to read the article: He is from Southern California.
Christine: COSTA MESA!!!
Me: Actually Santa Ana.
[Santa Ana is the city adjacent to Costa Mesa.]
