We got started late today. 100% my fault. I wanted to leave at noon. Due to stuff which I won't bore you with, we didn't leave until 2pm. But we still made Nashville, which was the goal. Had to drive until 11:30pm, but we got it done. Sorry there's only two pictures today. It was pretty much a hammer down day. I promise: more pics tomorrow.

What better way to start the trip pictures than with a pic for June. Enjoy :) Nashville at night. The building at right with the spires says BellSouth on it. I suspect that will be changed to AT&T.

Here's a really cool optical illusion from Bill in Louisville:

If your eyes follow the movement of the rotating pink dot, the dots will remain only one color, pink.


However if you stare at the black "+" in the center, the moving dot turns to green.

Now, concentrate on the black "+" in the center of the picture. After a short period, all the pink dots will slowly disappear, and you will only see only a single green dot rotating.

It's amazing how our brain works. There really is no green dot, and the pink ones really don't disappear. This should be proof enough, we don't always see what we think we see!

Note: The illusion is created by the depletion of the rhodopsin of the retina!

From Leo in NJ (who reminds you this is a joke, not a personal story):

One day the wife and I were discussing anger management and I asked her, "When I get mad at you, you never fight back. How do you control your anger?"

She said, "I clean the toilet bowl."

I asked, "How does that help?"

She replied, "I use your toothbrush."
