A worthy quote

"Not least for those who are called foreigners, for they are not foreigners. For, while the various segments of the Earth give different people a different country, the whole compass of this world gives all people a single country, the entire Earth, and a single home, the world."

A little bit of video

Recorded July 4th evening from my dashcam

Happy July 5th. I recorded this last night in Arvada, Colorado.

A video posted by Clyde (@clydehoadley) on

barreling down Flagstaff Road west of Boulder. I might have sped up the video a little bit.

Lightning, thunder and hail! Oh my!

Lightning, thunder and hail over Arvada. This is about a 1/2 hour after video below. I brought the camera inside, then the cat and I went downstairs until the worst of the storm was over. (Note: this is a 7second loop that plays over and over.)

Zap! I extracted this still photo out of the above video.

Lightning storm over Broomfield. This is second attempt at recording; I didn't have the camera set to video mode on the first attempt. (Note: this clip requires JavaScript to be enabled.)

Fun at the range

I had a lot of fun at the gun range this morning. I haven't shot a firearm in almost 40 years but I still managed to do fairly well.

Me at the Firing Line indoor gun range, Aurora, Colorado.

Springfield Armory XD mod 2 9mm semi-automatic.

Not bad for a newb.

OMG! I actually hit it!

This is a Walter P1 9mm.
