ABANDONED BEAUTY
ON ST. LOUIS RIVERFRONT

North side vacant buildings,
close to the river.

Amazing architecture,
graffiti, artwork, gardens.

Some scarce occupied business.

A certain beauty in these 
massive old structures.

LAGUNA AGATE

This lovely agate nodule
is from the Estacion Ojo Laguna area, 
in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico.

Many collectors consider Laguna Agates
to be the finest of their kind
in the whole world.

Intense color combinations
with sharp contrasting 
fortification bands --
always the trademark of 
a Laguna Agate.

MOREL MUSHROOMS

to hunt for morels.

TIGER WOODS
WINS 2019 MASTERS

After 11 years of injuries,
problems and doubts
if he would ever play at
a high level again,
Tiger Woods wins the 2019
Masters Tournament
at Augusta National Golf Club.

This is the 15th career major title,
and his first since 2008.
His fifth "green jacket."

What a comeback!

MY FAVORITE
FARMERS MARKET
OPENED THIS WEEKEND

Tower Grove Farmers Market
has opened for the season.

Perfect weather.
Local growers were swamped
with loyal customers.

Greens and sprouts,
fresh picked mushrooms,
honey and potions,
seedlings and seeds, 
the most beautiful flowers.
Plus home baked goodies,
and the most delicious  
fresh grilled sandwiches.

Everyone there was smiling!

FIRST EVER PHOTO
OF A BLACK HOLE

55-million light years
away from Earth.

6.5 billion times more massive
than our sun.

Behold the first ever image of
a black hole.

A joint collaborative effort
with 8 of the world's
largest radio telescopes,
aimed at the Messier 87 galaxy.
Two years in the making,
receiving and assembling
billions of bits of data.

All this results in the first ever
photo of a black hole.
Black because nothing can escape
its gravity, not even light.

Quite an achievement!
