Eligible for the Senior Discount


Yesterday I officially became a senior citizen. They can't keep me out of Leisure World anymore. Anne and I went to Sawtelle Kitchen for lunch and walked along Montana Avenue in Santa Monica and had an Italian ice at Di Dio's. I was waiting for the wind to pick up so I could try out the kite but when it finally did late in the day it was a bit too chilly. We ended up at El Cholo's in the evening for dinner because El Jarrito was closed.

On another note, I wanted to share a magazine discovery, "Make: technology on your time" a quarterly somewhat reminiscent of the Amateur Scientist articles in the older Scientific Americans, the "how-to" projects that pushed the boundaries of common sense to teach us principles of science at the risk of blowing ourselves to smithereens. "Make:" not only has interesting projects but profiles on people who've managed to scavenge the mind boggling technology we take for granted in our daily lives and made clever adaptations to suit a special purpose. There are eye-opening reviews of materials such as 3M's new black electrical tape that self activates when a piece is stretched so that it fuses to itself without that crummy slimey adhesive. Tool reviews are more practical than those found in "Wired" which are biased toward entertainment. Even if you do not build any of the projects like the jam jar jet engine, reading about them is fascinating. It takes a grass roots approach to giving us a feeling of having control over the technology around us by taking it apart and understanding it.
