2002_CA_WB3CA -- Burbank -- Warner Brothers Studio
While some would consider that I have a morbid interest in cemeteries (personally, I love the histories of the people buried there, the frequent beauty of the places, and the fact that they're easy to photograph), I entered this cemetery almost by accident. I had gotten lost in LA and found myself...

This was a weird experience. While I was at Glacier, I popped over into Canada (Alberta) just to say I'd been there. The Canadian customs guy was friendly enough. I drove across the border, stopped 200 feet into it, took some pictures, and came back. It was the American customs guys who were tough. Two...

There was a whacko religious group that prophesied that the earth would end on May 21. Whoops... Afterward, they claimed there were false prophets and the actual demise of the earth would be on, oh, let's say October 21 instead. You have to wonder about folks like this.

The thought of armed Trump supporters trying to keep "fraudulent" voters away from the polls made me vote early again this year. What a relief that they do this! Maryland was back to paper ballots which was awkward. And I didn't realize they didn't have a straight-ticket option.
