I used to go camping on the barrier isles on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. It's beautiful out there, but Hurricane Katrina literally redrew the map.


Is that semi-circular structure a fort?   And if so, was it constructed for the Revolutionary War or the Civil War?

The Four Preps 1958 hit song 26 Miles (Santa Catalina) has a line, "Santa Catalina, the island of romance." Until today, I've always thought that line was, "Santa Catalina, the isle of romance." Certainly sounds more romantic.

It's an excellent example of the auditory self-editing feature in my brain. It comes under the heading "hard of hearing." Hearing aids offer zero improvement. Sometimes people will talk to me and I can't understand a word they're saying. Asked a doctor about it. She confirmed my suspicions. It goes along with my visual migraines, which are sparkly rainbows in my field of vision. Totally in the brain, as it doesn't occur in either eye.
