Last night James Paxton, a native of Ladner, British Columbia and a left-handed pitcher for the Seattle Mariners (my favorite baseball team), pitched a no-hitter against the Toronto Blue Jays in Toronto. He is only the second Canadian pitcher to throw a no-hitter in Major League Baseball, and the on...
The last time I was on Belle Isle was August of 2016, but it wasn't to visit the forested areas. We were there to see the Draken Harald Hårfagre, a Viking longship that was visiting the Detroit Yacht Club!

Having visited Iceland within the last decade, and seen portions of the West half of roaded Iceland, I can attest to the paucity of trees. I did have occasion to view one of the few (at that time) forest plantations, and it was looking successful. Here is an obvious opportunity for Iceland to encou...
The Icelandic Sagas allude to a heavily forested island when the Vikings first arrived. Now Iceland is not heavily forested. However, material and debris uncovered by archeologists have confirmed that the Sagas were likely correct, and that 1,000 years of colonization and use has simply resulted in...

The leader bud just never grew. So a few weeks ago I cut off all but one of the new side whorl branches, figuring...
