Full Moon Midweek Musings…10 May 2017

The weather has been pretty nice for almost a week now! It’s a refreshing change from all of the rain we’d been having. The rain has been about average for this time of year, but the temperatures aren’t!

At this time last year, temperatures here on the Washington coast were in the mid-70s, with the lows hovering around the mid- to low 50s. This year, the highs are in the mid-50s, and the lows still drop to the low 40s! This morning is the third straight one where I could stand outside on the deck in my robe and not feel as if my legs would freeze off. It will be nice when it gets warmer, but it seems as if that won’t happen until the end of this month at the earliest.

Still working on clearing away shrubbery from around the house and the garage, and getting ready to move and transplant the bamboo jungle which we let go wild for a bit. It’s amazing how quickly it grows in ideal conditions; the last two years have seen it explode, and even this year there is still noticeable “creepage,” for lack of a better term! The bamboo that we have is the type that expands outward, so we can see where it is heading from the way the new shoots are erupting. Definitely fascinating to watch!

The roof on the house is scheduled to be re-shingled in August. A leak developed due to some of the shingles being slightly lifted when the winds from storms loosened some of the staples holding them down. It’s time to replace all with some better ones which have a longer warranty and are installed properly and securely! The winds blow strong here when the storms come through, so coastal houses tend to get battered a bit more than those on the lee side of even small mountain ranges.

There’s a full moon in Scorpio today, and I have a nice, lazy, relaxing day on tap. The Seattle Mariners will be facing the Philadelphia Phillies in a bit, so it’s time for me to get some game-time of my own in. Feel free to click on the link here and watch the action! Broadcasting will begin at 1100 PDT. Later, ‘gators!

Speaking of “Hidden Figures,” here’s an intriguing upcoming documentary from filmmaker Sheila Dianne Jackson and her Eve’s Lime Productions shingle, that I think will be of interest to many of you. Promising to bring to light the mostly ignored story of black women in rock, the film is titled “Nice & Rough: Black Women IN Rock.”

Per the filmmaker, it will pay homage to the women who helped define the sound that emerged as rock n’ roll in the 1950s and 60s, and the generation of women that followed them, inspired by their contributions. It originally started as a documentary on background singers, and evolved into something more that will uncover a rarely talked about, and to many, likely entirely unknown history of black women in rock. Jackson says she was inspired by her sister, a multi-talented singer (opera, jazz, R&B…
