Maurice White, founding member of Earth, Wind & Fire, gone at age 74. 2016 can go get stuffed.

We're having a warm spell this weekend -- yesterday it was 77 beautiful degrees (25 degrees Celsius), today it is 75, tomorrow it's supposed to be around 72. If only this could continue.

About three-quarters of the way through Pacific Crucible. I feel as though I have been reading this book forever.

I think this is a REALLY interesting story from the Guardian. Long story short, in 1949, there was a commuter-type plane crash outside of Manchester. Bunch of people killed. Couple of weeks ago, elderly gent appears at a pub near the crash site, asks for directions to the site. Later he's found dead there. Most obvious explanation -- he's a relative of one of the dead passengers from 1949. Except, he's not, and the truth may be even stranger.

Also, this is a wonderful photo slideshow of dogs and cats from the Telegraph.

And Paul Kantner, one of the founders of Jefferson Airplane, has passed away. This is like The Year All the Musicians Died, seriously. :-(

Glenn Frey is gone, aged 67. What the actual fuck.



That's Frey on lead vocals. The Eagles were everywhere in the '70s, when I was in college. Everywhere.

Really, you can just stop with the death shit any time now. I mean, really. >:-P

So anyway. Decided it would be a good day to make bread, so that's what we're doing. Mixed whole wheat with white, ten-grain, a quarter-cup of bulgur, sunflower seeds, blackstrap molasses for sweetness. :-)
