Garden

I went to the Jardin des Plantes here in Paris to have a look at what is flowering there right now. As I am always saying, it was a beautiful day. I seldom get out on gray days. This sculpture was out front. That’s some alligator! A very tall tree starting to leaf. I think this was a type of magnolia tree but the bloom were a creamy yellow. I was going to get a photo of this gorgeous tree without any people but I decided to leave them in to show how huge the tree was. T...

High Water

Every time I looked at my weather app I would get a message for flooding but Paris seemed dry to me except for some light rain. Then I went to the window that has a slight view of the Seine that I have if I press my forehead against it, and found that the Seine was high so it was flooding somewhere. The walking path along the river is covered by water. You can usually walk in front of the area in front of the Statue of Liberty. Pretty light on the Seine. Another view. ...

Far-right conspiracy theorists say 94% of US COVID-19 deaths don't count because those Americans had underlying conditions. That's bogus.

Patient Doreen Mount is comforted by a radiologist in the X-ray department at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital in Blackburn, Britain, May 14, 2020. The CDC's weekly report on US COVID-19 deaths breaks down fatalities by age, sex, race, and comorbidities — health conditions that increase a person's risk of a severe case. Because only 6% of Americans who died of COVID-19 had no preexisting conditions, some people think those are the only people who the virus has truly killed. That's f...

AK Monthly Recap: August 2020

I always dreamed of spending a summer hopping along the Adriatic. I would touch down in Venice and head to Piran in Slovenia, making my way down the coasts of Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, and Greece. Well, I kind of got that. I never dreamed it would be under these circumstances. I am beyond thankful that Croatia gave me and my boyfriend what we needed — a place where we could be together at a time when we’re banned from each other’s countries. Beyond that, this trip allowed me to work wi...
