    I think you and Eva will need to come on over and show them how.

    Lee PMed some birding questions for his wife. Perhaps the information will be of interest to others. Lee L, someone more knowledgeable in this than I, please correct me on any of this if needed.

    There was a large hockey-basket ball coliseum on the north side of the intersection of Rt. 271 and Rt. 303. It was demolished some years ago, maybe twenty, and a grass land was planted in its place. About a mile west of that is the Country Maid Ice cream store that we talk so much about. About a mile north of the coliseum are the two waterfalls you visited last time. The whole area is 4-5 miles from our house.

    Further on the subject of birds, there is a great Blue Heron rookery on Bath Rd. between Riverview Rd. and Akron - Peninsula Rd.. where Bath Rd. crosses the Cuyahoga River. Bath Rd. is two parallel roads south of our road Everett. One Heron visits our pond every day we don't have people running around the yard. There is a second great Blue Heron rookery and an eagle's nest on the Towpath north of the Brecksville RR Station.

    I didn't know about this, but my wife had heard about the project. Here's a web page:
    http://www.wcasohio.org/richfield_grasslands.htm
    The maps there are from Microsoft and not interactive. I'll check on it later and see about putting it in the NEOH APUG google page with better maps. From the web page it sounds like they ripped out all the old parking and now you have to park along the side of the road.

    At least looking from the road, every trace of concrete is gone. I have not walked the land though.

    I have some pictures of it just before it was destroyed, probably around 1998. Now there is not much left. In fact I went looking for it a few years ago and had some trouble finding the same spot.

    Wow. I lost track of our event dates with the Fourth of July activity. NE OH Gathering, July 16-18, 2010. That is just a week and a half away. Who all is thinking of coming? When should we expect you? Three maybe four people from the Midwest LF asylum are talking about coming. Lee & Sue from Dayton are coming. Talk to me! Who else will be here and when? Are there any changes in the evolving plan that people would like to see? Will there be enough that chipping in for the $111.00 Porta Potty is reasonable. Bring prints to show and tell.

    Sue and I are on target to be there. Going to bring Hassy for a walk along with some 8X__ for bird watching.

    Is the exhibit at the Akron museum shoing the urban jungle of Detroit still showing?

    Lee,

    Yes.

    Here is the announcement from the museum and a link to a video the artist and the curator made.


    Detroit Disassembled:
    Photographs by Andrew Moore
    June 5, 2010 - October 10, 2010
    Arnstein, Bidwell and Isroff Galleries


    Andrew Moore’s photographs of the Motor City are sublime—beautiful, operatic in scale and drama, tragic yet offering a glimmer of hope. They are the subject of Detroit Disassembled, an exhibition organized by the Akron Art Museum making its debut here before touring nationally. Detroit, once the epitome of our nation’s industrial wealth and might, has been in decline for almost a half-century. The city is now one-third empty land—more abandoned property than any American city except post-Katrina New Orleans.

    Moore’s images, printed on the scale of epic history paintings, belong to an artistic tradition that began in the 17th century. Numerous artists have used ruins to remind their viewers of the fall of past great civilizations and to warn that contemporary empires risk the same fate. Moore’s soaring scenes of rusting factory halls and crumbling theaters share the monumentality of Giovanni Battista Piranesi’s 18th century engravings of the fallen civic monuments of ancient Rome and Greece. His photographs of skeletal houses and collapsed churches carry forward the Romantic tone and rich hues of Caspar David Friedrich’s 19th century paintings of fallen medieval cathedrals and castles. Although hard to believe that Moore's post-apocalyptic scenes reflect present-day America, he has been scrupulously honest, creating photographs that are both documentary and metaphorical in nature.

    Andrew Moore is a friend of ours - in fact the assistant in that video is my good friend Dan, who played tour guide for most of the places shown in the book. I would highly recommend the show to anyone interested.

    Any chance one of you would be able to record that video off of PBS? We aren't getting it shown up here in Detroit.

    I see that it is playing today at 2pm - wow, that's not much notice ...
