Road Trip 2009 photos: D.C.

Lest anyone think that all I care about is baseball, birds, and politics (more on those topics very soon!), I have assembled a page full of highly scenic photos I took in Our Nation's Capital on the first day of this month, as I was beginning my Great Road Trip. The weather was perfect, and I hastened to make the best use of my brief time available, walking for at least three five miles altogether. My tender feet paid the price with severe blisters later on, but it was worth it, as I hope you will agree. Below is a montage taken from the all-new Washington, D.C. photo gallery, including a few places that are less familiar to most people:

This (or that) year's
blog highlights

Blog highlights have been compiled for the years 2010-2012 thus far, and eventually will be compiled for earlier years, back to 2002.


The "home made" blog organization system that I created was instituted on November 1, 2004, followed by several functional enhancements in subsequent years. I make no more than one blog post per day on any one category, so some posts may cover multiple news items or issues. Blog posts appear in the following (reverse alphabetical) order, which may differ from the chronological order in which the posts were originally made:

  1. Wild birds (LAST)
  2. War
  3. Science & Technology
  4. Politics
  5. Latin America
  6. Culture & Travel
  7. Canaries ("Home birds")
  8. Baseball (FIRST)
