Hats and a Hormonal Mama Dolphin


Hats? I just don't use them. I love them :-) For my Cj though and like many other children, hats are much more than just head ornaments. I'm posting a few shots of Cj with his head protection on.

Last year when several relatives from PI flew in to visit us, we took them to Huahin, Thailand's summer capital. The heat there could really burn during April and May but other than that, it's a great place to relax. We rented a neat beach house and toured a few nearby sights. We drove up a hill and had lunch there

Just this summer we (with friend and former college roommate Dr Nillos) visited the sharks at the Underwater World :) then we proceeded to the Sanctuary of Truth, that edifice behind us. To explore it, we had to wear safety hats which were a bit heavy. Cj, uncomfotable with his, was fidgeting

We were supposed to watch a dolphin show after roaming the Sanctuary, but the main star, a pregnant dolphin, refused to come out, according to Management. They apologized. We dropped by the resort restaurant on our way back. Cj ordered food that he couldn't consume so I took care of it for him. This is how he looks while watching me finish what he started. With the heavy safety hat he was forced to wear and the dolphin show that never was, what kid wouldn't look like he's got the weight of the world on his shoulders? =)


And this was in Kanchanaburi, at Hindad Hot Spring. I tell yah I love hats! (lol)

Phaeton

Remember that 1995 Sense and Sensibility scene in which dashing Mr. Willoughby recklessly drives a phaeton around town with Marianne Dashwood? The novel was published in 1811.  Fast drag your imagination to 2011 and the two lovers are today's rich hunk and a happy-go-lucky, attractive chick speeding on say, a Lamborghini Reventon. In Pride and Prejudice, obsequious Mr Collin declares, "she (Lady Catherine de Bough) is perfectly amiable, and often condescends to drive by my humble abode in her little phaeton and ponies." pha·e·ton   (f -tn) n. 1. A light, four-wheeled open carriage, usually drawn by a pair of horses.    2. A touring car. ( The Free Dictionary) Jane Austen in Vermont Two ladies in a high perch phaeton. The owners of these sporty, open-air and lightning fast carriages actually drove the vehicle, as there was no place for a coachman. Phaeton seats were built high off the ground, the sides of the vehicle were open to the elements (a top cou

Rumford

The Rumford is a much more efficient way to heat a room than earlier fireplaces.... ( Wikipedia on Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, designer of tall, shallow fireplaces which are now known as the Rumford, was an Anglo-American physicist known for his investigations of heat) Living in the tropics, I have been in close proximity with only three fireplaces in my life. There was an unused one in the home of my college professor in the Philippines. The other one from which I could feel the heat and see the fire dancing was in a hotel lobby in the Yorkshire Moors. Picture taking was quick. Two old ladies were having tea by it, but that was my first ever real fireplace experience, and I loved it. The latest I have touched is the one in Jane Austen's imaginary Northanger Abbey. The fireplace, where she had expected the ample width and ponderous carvings of former times, was contracted to a Rumford , with slabs of plain though handsome marbles, and ornament over it of the prettiest Eng
