This is how good...

This is how good the food was at Knife and Fork last night. My friend Chris said he'd never drunk from a plate at a restaurant before, but he didn't want to waste the tasty pool of loveliness on his plate. I got Wendy to come over and encourage him. She told him it was the highest form of praise.

Bowling ball pendulums, again

Many of you probably remember Jeff's pendulum wave project from this winter. If not, you can catch up here. The first version was a temporary construction behind the soccer field, but this summer Jeff made a permanent installation at his house. A few people got together to help him set it up.

Here's Polly attaching the bowling balls. 

Here's the finished project in action. After it was set up, Jeff had the idea of putting little clappers on the bottom of each bowling ball and then putting a pot or a vase or a piece of metal or something that makes a sound when struck underneath each ball. So now when you release pendulums you get a little percussion piece that changes as the pendulum wave goes through its cycle.

A few from the festival

I've been remiss in not posting anything from last weekend's Festatoa at Jody's. I'll put up some more soon, but here are a few for now. This is the late-night audience.

This is what they were watching. Music and dancing in the woods. What's not to like?
