I wish more people would make online scrapbooks.  I've rarely read anything other than biographies,
and I especially like autobiographical content.  My own scrapbook has gotten mighty big, but I have 
a hard time abandoning things.

Summiting the Grand Teton

Wyoming, August 2023

(Summiting the Grand was the primary goal of
the trip.  That was smooth and successful and
could not possibly have happened without the
detailed route knowledge and expertise provided 
by Morgan, of Exum Mountaineering.)

Time flies.  Been one year since I had the
honor of playing host for one month to 
Scott Booth, the best folk songwriter/singer
who ever was.  Four albums to date.
Played lots of catch with the baseball and 
rode bikes.  Also had the honor of creating 
Scott's official website for his music.

Listen to my favorites at his website:

Thankful for the soothing sound of my furnace

Relativity in absolute terms

There are only three sane sections in the Wikipedia article 
on the twin paradox of special relativity.  I authored those 
sections in 2011, and they've been there continuously since that time:

Here's the link to the three sections below.

   4.  A non space-time approach
   5.  The equivalence of biological aging and clock time-keeping
   12. No twin paradox in an absolute frame of reference

On several fundamental levels, Relativity Trail eclipses the works of Poincare, Lorentz and Einstein regarding the underpinnings and kinematics of special relativity: link: The originality and uniqueness of Relativity Trail
The twin paradox of special relativity cannot be resolved without acknowledging a hierarchy of clock rates dependent on a hierarchy of inertial motion. © 2022 Relativity Trail explains the time differential between reunited clocks, eliminates the twin paradox, diagrams Einstein's clock sychronization in absolute terms, and ends all confusion regarding relative frames of reference. It's completely compatible with, and in fact subsumes, Einstein's relativity. It reveals what is transpiring behind the scenes of Einstein's treatment. Spacetime is shown to be dependent on Einstein's clock synchronization method, and is properly relegated to a geometrical construct which comes up short as a physical reality. © 2008 Relativity Trail, with 192 pages, 65 diagrams and 75 illustrations, will provide you with complete detailed algebraic derivations of all the kinematical effects of special relativity. Everything is charted out in absolute terms against a system at rest with respect to the totality of the universe for perfect clarity as well as soundness of theoretical basis. It is the totality of the universe that imparts the inertial properties of clock rates and lengths which generate the effects of relativity. This is explained in detail in Relativity Trail

I wrote the program code for the animation using
QuickBASIC for DOS.

I've had a website up since 1996, but it 
was tiny until I started adding more of my
activities in 2017.  Things add up and I 
rarely discard things.

  Here are gathered the least fun things.

  -->  arithmetic of wind and solar energy

  -->  my pampered life  &  engineering  &  the U of M

  -->  Sixty years ago

  -->  police, media, and mobs

  -->  Talk right, a crossword puzzle story

  -->  In defense of Herzog and Einstein

Current project (December 2022):

I've long yearned to have a kitchen like the
one in the photo above. I have a room in 
my basement which has a full-sized east-
facing garden-level window; and I'm going to
build a precise replica of this kitchen in
that room, arranged and sized to fit that
room's shape and window placement.  
I already have a retro oven and retro frig in
the basement, to which I'll apply a white
enamel finish.  I also have a retro table of
the same size as the one in the photo, whose
formica top I'll change to red with full-gloss
polyurethane enamel.

I just finished modeling it in RogCAD

 * The Proof *

 Andrew Wiles tackles the 350 year old mystery
 of X^n + Y^n <> Z^n in an eight year odyssey,
 working in isolation.  This is the best story 
 of personal drama and enchantment I've ever
 watched.  A lovable cast of characters 
 (Wiles and his math colleagues).

 * The Flight of the Snow Geese - 1972 *

 Des and Jen Bartlett care for orphaned 
 snow goslings from Hudson Bay to Texas.

 Emmy for cinematography.
