I built a crystal radio, it was amazing, no power source yet I could get Am stations. Magic!

I had a nice transistor radio and dropped it while I was doing the dishes. Something happened to the tuner, and after that it would only broadcast Dominion Observatory Canada, accurate time given every minute. Some kind of astronomical clock. CHQ it was. Can you explain to me what happened?


Was it shortwave? There are clock stations running around on 40 meters.


Ah! I see it was CHU, not CHQ. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CHU_%28callsign%29

Somehow my radio must have transformed into a (very limited) shortwave!

Since it declared itself to be Dominion Observatory Canada, it must have been prior to the shift to the National Research Council of Canada in 1970. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dominion_Observatory

My grandmother had a shortwave (floor model!) on which I listened to the takeover of Radio Brazzaville by rebels in 1963.

No idea how that would happen, but it's kinda cool.

My oldest original print dates to 1902 or so.


My oldest are Aladore by Henry Newbolt, 1914, Peter Pan and Wendy, 1911, and my prize, Undine, by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué, 1911 (first English translation).

I also have a Victorian printing of The Vicar of Wakefield but of course it is not the original.


I have a 1901 German Bible (Die Heillige Schrift) It even has a personal note written in Fraktur on the first blank page.

Mine isn't particularly special or extensive, mostly old American pennies from the early 20th century and Asian/African/Eastern European Cold War era coins.

Also I have an Israeli dollar but that isn't really special, just cool lookin'.

trees, trains, computers and little furry creatures with big sharp teeth. and a good many other things that involve creating and exploring.

i don't count collecting as a hobby, that's a con game and an ego trip.

real hobbies are about creating things and being creative.

of course i don't create trees or life forms, just models of trees and images of imaginary sapient life forms, which may or may not resemble people on other words.
trains are the main thing. my first love was seeing a model railroad when i was little more then a year old. i wasn't talking coherently yet, but i was able to toddle around a friend of my father's basement, chasing the little trolly he had running all the way around it, much as my housemate's cats chase mine around now.

then there was the forest i grew up in. i don't mean i have a hobby of silvaculture, nor even zooanthropology, but i do number myself among some wonderful people who have a particular affinity for non-humans.
the latter evolved out of an interest moon mining engineer's daughters and their little extraterrestrial friends. or something like that.

actually i like to imagineer little people size houses and trains and alien worlds and naturally, to make pictures that anyone will look at, and hopefully be inspired by, they need to have people and furry people just look better, so there you go.
truth isn't what i say. isn't what you say. isn't what anybody says. truth is what is there, when no one is saying anything.
