It was such an unusually nice day yesterday for April that I decided to take Benelli out. I stopped at a park not too far from us that is next to a creek. Due to some late snow storms and rain in the state earlier this month, we had flooding all around us and this park/creek was affected. Here are a few pics I took while I was there.
A group of people who believe the Earth is flat have announced their “biggest, boldest, best adventure yet”: a Flat Earth cruise scheduled for 2020. The cruise, organized by the Flat Earth International Conference, promises to be a lovely time. Flat earthers – who include the rapper B.o.B. and reality television person Tila Tequila – will be able to enjoy restaurants, swimming pools and perhaps even an artificial surf wave.

“Ships navigate based on the principle that the Earth is round,” said Henk Keijer, a former cruise ship captain who sailed all over the globe during a 23-year career.
