I love this little girl – “Encore!” indeed.


Bus-ted on tattoo Tuesday?

November 12, 2019

In the early hours of October 28, commuters witnessed an unusual sight as the rear of a Pittsburgh city bus vanished into a giant sinkhole.  There was one passenger on the bus, but no injuries.

It turns out there had been a water main leak under the street that washed out the area under the pavement.  The bus was just at the wrong place when the asphalt gave way underneath it.

The incident has led to a number of Pittsburgh wags creating bus sinkhole doughnuts, sinkhole Christmas ornaments, a bus sinkhole Halloween costume and, of course, a tattoo.

A crane was summoned and street repairs are underway.

What are they eating?

I was waiting for a ride the other day when I saw a flock of house sparrows (or in this case hospital sparrows – (they were on the lawn of Rainbow B & C Hospital) – eating what I thought was a mushroom cap.  It turns out it was half a bagel.  Who know they liked deli?

Suzanne Jongmans is an artist who uses packaging materials that we throw away to recreate portraits reminiscent of renaissance art.  Her photographs recall the images of the Old Masters.  She says,” “The idea of making something out of nothing changes our look on reality…Most people throw that [foam] away. I make clothing out of it; foam is my textile.” see more of her work here
