Every year someone performs his self-appointed task of painting the local fire hydrants. This one is across the street from our house.
I cannot recall if he paints the tops different bright colors every year, but this year he has. Some are turquoise, forest green, and as you see, yellow.
Later he will return to paint the lower part of the hydrant. I have never caught him at his work.

Recently I was chided by a friend for not reading the newspaper. If you read what is on my home page you will see I get BBC news, plus the Christian Science Monitor daily news. I am actually allergic to newspapers, and paper and ink and airplanes and trucks cannot deliver the news as fast as this home page does. True, I did not know about a leaking pipe in our power plant when we had the rolling blackouts, but on my other email page I have local headlines, and if I had been paying attention it may have appeared there.

Osprey PHONED and asked how it was doing, and what my framerate is in Second Life. Well, although I do not recall having had more than 35 fps, and usually much lower rates than that, today I had between 55-70 fps! That means less jerkiness in filming, and all sorts of things become better in a virtual world. YAY acer you are ACE!
