Our First Section in "AROUND THE WORLD IN PHOTOGRAPHS has Two Different Subjects for this April 5, 2021 Issue : 1) Neist Point Lighthouse on the Isle of Skye, Scotland & 2) Osorno Volcano Rising Above Llanquihue Lake in Southern Chile.
Neist Point Lighthouse is perched on the farthest reach of Scotland's rugged Duirinish peninsula and marks the most westerly point on the Isle of Skye. First lit in 1909, the beacon has been automated since 1990, and the outbuildings, once home to lighthouse keepers, are now privately owned. In our image we're looking across the expanse of the Little Minch, a channel of water separating the Isle of Skye from the land mass we see on the horizon—the Outer Hebrides islands.

THE 2019 "MANGO MADNESS" FROM THE STUDIOS OF KEY WEST (3 Sections in this April 5th. Issue)
We Start Part 2 of 5 with "QUESTIONABLE AIRPLANES THAT SHOULD HAVE NEVER LEFT THE GROUND" by WWW.DEFINITIONS.ORG . The Editor from Definitions for this Feature is Tymber Aldaine
The NB-36 Convair Crusader was meant to be a bomber aircraft with a nuclear reactor mounted at the tip of its tail. The whole plane was designed to test the feasibility of an aircraft that is powered by nuclear power. There were safety features installed such as lead to cover the nuclear reactor, which was meant to protect the crew. The flight proved to be a success; however, President Eisenhower discontinued due to public concern.
Short history lesson: Belphegor is the name of a demon god that tricks people into making useless inventions. This history lesson will prove to be significant with this aircraft. The Belphegor aircraft promised to be Poland’s answer to its dry farmlands as it was built to crop dust over the area’s vast farmlands. It was a costly project that did not live up to its name because the aircraft was so ugly, heavy, and slow.
Sometimes the design and promise of an aircraft are better than the actual aircraft itself. The Yakovlev Yak-38 was meant to be a military supersonic jet that can navigate as precisely as a helicopter with cool jet boosters for vertical take-off and landing. However, this Russian aircraft proved to be useless when it came to military purposes because it consumed so much fuel that it can only be used within a 200-mile Radius
If there were ever a plane with the worst flight track record, it would be the Sikorsky S-76. This aircraft has been involved in multiple aircraft disasters starting with a mechanical failure in the North Sea, which killed five people and left six stranded. Another incident was the crash in the Baltic Sea, killing all 14 on board. In 2015, the aircraft crashed in an Indonesian tree, and in 2020, Kobe Bryant was killed in a fatal air crash.
The Lockheed Martin was supposed to be the presidential helicopter. However, because it was too expensive to maintain due to its fuel consumption, President Barack Obama decided to discontinue the program. It was later replaced with a more cost-effective presidential helicopter program, the Lockheed.
The Bell aircraft was designed to be the fastest aircraft in the world back in the ’40s! The rocket plane hit a whopping record of over 1000 mph, making it the quickest human-crewed supersonic flight. However, it reached a devastating end in October 1947 when the quietness and calmness of the Mojave Desert were interrupted with a loud boom as the Bell aircraft hit at a Mach 1.06 speed; this broke the sound barrier.

51st EARTH DAY JAM with That Hippie Band
Wisconsin Senator Gaylord Nelson saw the ravages of the 1969 Santa Barbara, California oil spill. He saw the Cuyahoga River catch fire from pollutants in downtown Cleveland. The LA smog was so bad you could no longer see the famous Hollywood sign. He founded the first Earth Day April 22, 1970, and 20 million mostly young Americans took to the streets to protest for a cleaner environment.
Fast forward 51 years later, Earth Day will be celebrated by over a billion people in 192 countries on every continent. The planet still needs our help more than ever, and we all still need this magical music era.
The 50th Earth Day in 2020 was the cleanest ever after the Covid locked down of the planet. Emissions were down as much as 45%. People in India could see the Himalayas for the first time, NASA satellites documented changes worldwide, the Grand Canal of Venice was crystal clear.
Join us Thursday April 22nd for a special celebration of this glorious 51st Earth Day, with a fugitive band of Hippies from 60s that have been hanging out performing in Key West. They all use to have long hair, smoked weed, and could play any 60s song that anyone could remember.
Gary Hempsey and “That Hippie Band”, will help you remember all those songs from the Age of Aquarius. The Beatles, Grateful Dead, Rolling Stones, Jefferson Starship, and some Crosby, Stills, & Nash will be rediscovered.
The 2019 Earth Day Jam was a huge success, this year will be even better. So come on people now, smile on your brother, and enjoy all this wonderful music once again. It will be like Woodstock without the mud.
Wear your coolest Hippie clothes (oxymoron intended) and join the glorious celebration of the 51st Earth Day with Gary Hempsey and That Hippie Band will be tuned up ready to go. Reef Relief will be on display along with the Conch Republic Marine Army, and the Key West Parrot Heads will all help us celebrate.
This is a Rams Head Production at the Coffee Butler Amphitheater on Earth Day, Thursday, April 22, 2021. Doors open at 5:00pm, music and fun begins at 6:00pm.
THE BROADCAST OF THE MARCH 31, 2021 "BETWEEN TWO PALMS" Hosted by MURPHY DAVIS and Featuring JONATHAN FREEMAN ; Up Shortly
WE NOW START PART 1 OF A NEW PHOTOGRAPHIC FEATURE FROM WWW.THEDADDEST.COM "50 OF THE WORST CARS EVER MADE" Feature Editor OLIVER HAMILTON Published on 4/21/2020
TransAm Type K
The TransAm Type K was a Pontiac concept car that got a lot of thumbs up from the public. It featured in a two-part episode of The Rockford Files. It appeared destined to hit the American roads soon as a trendy family car, and GM certainly intended to do just that. When all was said and done, though, the estimates showed that the project was far too ambitious for the intended price. To turn a profit, Pontiac would have had to price the Type K at $25,000, which would have bought two Corvettes.
1982 Cadillac Cimarron
The Cimarron was GM's attempt to introduce the massive Cadillacs to the smaller car range, yet it failed because the car was so bad. Unpopularly based on the GM J platform, it performed terribly and is one of Cadillac's worst failures. In fact, the brand was almost discontinued because of how badly it failed. As Elliot puts it, the Cimarron "appealed neither to Cadillac's loyal followers, who appreciated powerful V8s and Cadillac's domestic luxury edge, nor to buyers who favored Europe's luxury brands, whose cars out-handled and out-classed the Cimarron in every way."
Chrysler Imperial LeBaron Two-Door Hardtop
The Imperial was once a respected car, but by the end of the '60s, it wasn't very highly regarded. When 1971 rolled around, the LeBaron was the only one still around. By that time, it looked trashy, even back then, and has the distinction of having one of the longest fenders in two-door history. The interior of the "luxury" vehicle was nothing to write home about and looked cheap. Production ended in 1975, although Chrysler tried to resurrect the model in 1980. That didn't work because the engine was terrible.
There's a reason why French car manufacturers abandoned the U.S. long ago, and the Renault Dauphine is exactly the sort of engineering failure that gives the country such a bad name. It would shake and the engine was weak. In addition, it was extremely unsafe. That being said, it was an instant hit when it was released because of the low cost and nimbleness, despite having terrible acceleration and a two-tone horn. Soon enough, drivers also realized it rusted extremely fast and sales plummeted.
1971 Chevy Vega
The Chevy Vega was released in the early '70s to high acclaim. The inline, four-cylinder design of the aluminum alloy engine was praised by Motor Trend, which named it car of the year in 1971. But soon after buying one of these, it was clear you had a lemon on your hands.
The Michelin PLR
This car was built by Michelin, which at the time owned Citroën. You won't see this car anywhere but France, where it is now used for various shows as a novelty. This 10-tire monstrosity is a bit of a Citroën Frankenstein, as it's made of a who's who of random parts on hand, mostly from the DS Safari. It weighs 10 tons, so it's remarkable that the top speed is 111 miles per hour. That's due in no small part to the two Chevrolet 5.7- liter V8s.
1958 Zundapp Janus
Zundapp Janus was a failed attempt by a decent motorcycle company at crossing over into cars, and for that reason remains the company's only foray into that market. You can understand why it was named after the Roman god with two faces, one facing forward and the other facing back, because the car looked the same on both ends. You had a 50-50 chance of guessing which direction a parked Janus was pointing from the outside. It had a rear door and front door as well but these features didn't help it sell.

June 11 will be a staged reading of Happy Birthday, Wanda June by Kurt Vonnegut (his first play which premiered in 1970 and was adapted into a film in 1971; capturing his brilliantly distinct perspective, it’s a darkly humorous, searing examination of the excesses of capitalism, patriotism & American culture in the post-Vietnam War era, $50 per Lawn Circle). The series will continue with Michael Urie and his partner Ryan Spahn starring in Edward Albee’s The Zoo Story July 8-11 ($100 per Lawn Circle), A Night with the Wolfe July 23 celebrating Tom Wolfe, also affectionately known as the Man in the White Suit (the evening will showcase his wit & cultural insights and will include excerpts from his novels, short works, articles & interviews, all told by performers each costumed in Wolfe’s iconic white suit, $100 per Lawn Circle). 5-time Tony-winner and Academy of the Arts member Susan Stroman will direct three unique live theater events Aug 27-29, and Labor Day Weekend Sep 3-4 will be the premiere of new play Crisis in Queens by Academy member Joy Behar ($200 per Lawn Circle).

After a bout of cancer, Key West’s Bill Blue is finally on the mend.This concert is dedicated to helping him get on his feet financially after his illness. Bill’s record label, Conch Town Music, gained permission from the City of Key West to use the Coffee Butler Amphitheatre at the Truman Waterfront for a fundraiser concert on Saturday, April 17, 2021.
Renowned in recent years for his Sunday Soundchecks at the Green Parrot and successful concerts at the Key West Theater, Blue has been a fixture of Key West music for more than forty years. He earned his chops with blues legend Arthur ‘Big Boy” Crudup, who wrote “That’s All Right Mama,” made famous by Elvis Presley. After touring with Crudup and opening for Bonnie Raitt, Blue went on his own and finally settled in Key West in the 1980’s. Regular performers at Sloppy Joe’s and the Full Moon Saloon, Bill and his band were the first to play music for John Vagnoni at The Green Parrot.
Blue hadn’t recorded in 25 years when he released the CD “Mojolation” in 2013, followed by “The King of Crazy Town” in 2020.
Always willing to play benefits and lend a hand to his fellow Key Westers, Blue was honored by the City of Key West in 2013 for his service to the community. October 13th was declared “Bill Blue Day.”
This concert is also a community effort. Musicians are donating their time. Ram’s Head Group is donating their ticketing platform and production assistance. And 100% of ticket sales and sponsor donations are going directly to Bill Blue thanks to Conch Town Music.
Please join us in helping our old friend, Bill Blue. Buy a ticket today!

MORE FROM "BETWEEN TWO PALMS" and Host MURPHY DAVIS and Guest JONATHAN FREEMAN UP SHORTLY. Now a Feature Provided by Carol Tedesco about KOTS
On Thursday, Sandra Mitchell, left, along with other Keys Overnight Temporary Shelter (KOTS) clients, received gifts of dental hygiene kits donated by Dr. Carter Weber of Southernmost Smiles Dental Practice along with “goody bag care kits” gifted by young Keys Vineyard Church members, distributed by KOTS shelter supervisor Moises Delgado, center, and Elicia Pintabona, founder and president of CRA, the nonprofit organization that manages KOTS, right. “The 100 dental hygiene packs donated by Dr. Weber are such a welcome blessing,” said Pintabona, “as it’s normally very difficult for our homeless clients to obtain any kind of dental care. “And of course the delightful gift bags containing hand-made cards, bottled water, bandaids, gummy snacks and lip balm brought delight to our client’s hearts.” Pintabona says that anyone interested in making donations to KOTS should email her at email@example.com or visit the organizations website at keyscra.org.

This is how we "texted" back in the day, hoping not to get caught by the teacher!
Ha! Old-timey days. Long before we all had iPhones, the only way to send a message to your friends was to pass them a note. The only problem was, if the teacher caught you passing a note, chances are they would make you read the note to the whole class. Certainly embarrassing if the note was about a boy you liked - or how much of an alcoholic your father was.
One secret spy way to pass a note was to write a note on a piece of paper small enough to fit inside the cap of a pen. Then roll up the paper and place it inside of the pen. Then have your friend ask to borrow your pen. Vola! Note safely delivered.
A group of young hippies hitchhiking to Berkeley, 1960s.
Ah yes, the carefree days of the 60s - when hippies could gleefully hitchhike on the roads of America - without fear of being butchered by some crazed serial killer or the Manson Family. Hitchhiking was once a key means of transportation for young people in the United States. It played an important role in Jack Kerouac's novel, On the Road." It used to be very normal to see someone sticking their thumb out on the side of the road - waiting for someone to pick them up. It was a lifestyle that dated back to the Depression era.
Nowadays, we don't really see too much hitchhiking - the closest thing we have is Uber Pool.
Who had a Spirograph set growing up in the '70s?
This was a very trippy art toy - that allowed kids to make their very own psychedelic designs. Spirograph is a geometric drawing toy that was developed by British engineer Denys Fisher who first exhibited it at the 1965 Nuremberg International Toy Fair. With a simple pen or pencil, it produces a variety of mathematical roulette curves. The trademark was sold to Hasbro Inc. The Spirograph was named Toy of the Year in 1967.
Drawing toys with gears have been around for some time. The Marvelous Wondergraph was first advertised in the Sears catalog in 1908.
A young Valerie Bertinelli in the 1970s.
Before she was Mrs. Eddie Van Halen, Valerie Bertinelli was a young child star who got her star on the TV sitcom, One Day at a Time. The show debuted in late 1975, when Bertinelli was 15-years old, and ran until 1984. Something kind of creepy, when Bertinelli was 16, she dated 27-year old Paul Shaffer - former musical director of David Letterman's band. I guess you could say it was a different era. Or creepy in any era.
She was also said to be romantically linked to Steven Spielberg. But the man who grabbed Bertinell's heart was Eddie Van Halen - who she met backstage at a Van Halen concert in 1980. They were married the following year - though he couple divorced in 2007. Bertinelli cited one reason was Van Halen's refusal to quit smoking despite being diagnosed with oral cancer and losing one-third of his tongue in the treatment process.
An 18 year-old Bruce Lee with his master, Ip Man, in 1958.
Bruce Lee was such a badass. Not only did he change the face of cinema by becoming an international star, but he also changed the face of martial arts - and introduced the world to Jeet Kune Do - which he founded. He was also a man who could rock the yellow jumpsuit as he did in the 1973 movie, Game of Death.
But every star has to learn from someone; Ip Man was a Cantonese martial artist and a master teacher of Wing Chun - who taught Lee his bag of tricks. Sadly Ip died in 1972 from throat cancer, only seven months before the death of his prized student.
Anthony Michael Hall in The Breakfast Club, 1985.
Oh yes! Anthony Michael Hall as the brainy geek in the 1985 movie, The Breakfast Club. The film is one of John Hughes' best - as we spend a Saturday afternoon in detention with five teens in a suburban Chicago high school. Sure the movie kind of played the students as stereotypes - but it did so in such a great humorous and warmhearted way; as we meet the jock, the geek, the stoner, the outcast, and the princess.
During production, teenage Hall hit a growth spurt - and was shorter than costar Judd Nelson at the start of production; but by the end was actually taller than him.

Key West's very own Sally Binard debuted her latest show, "None of The Above", at The Studios of Key West this past January. Now, we at Harrison Gallery are beyond pleased to host select pieces from her collection.
A poignant excerpt from Sally's recent interview with Mark Hedden of Keys Weekly:
“I just learned so much from the other artists and saw the power of what they – and now I can include myself – were doing. It was a conversation that was not just about hanging a pretty picture on the wall. And that’s just when I was hooked on art being something bigger than aesthetics and pretty stuff, and about the function that we can play in social change or environmental change.”
To view more of Sally's work visit our website or come by Harrison Gallery at 825 White Street.

The City of Key West and the City Commission want to hear your vision of ways to improve the North Roosevelt Blvd corridor. The community – property owners, business owners, residents and visitors – are urged to participate to help envision the island’s future.
The City is reviewing all potential options and opportunities, such as increasing landscaping, increasing buffers between commercial and residential, incentivizing smaller and more inviting signage, placing parking behind commercial uses, and more.
This this survey will record the public’s opinion on how to improve this crucial corridor and how to forge a path forward for the City and North Roosevelt Blvd.

The City of Key West and Waste Management want to remind local businesses to recycle cardboard and do it properly.
Cardboard from commercial entities must be contained, whether its bundled with string or flattened and placed in a box. Unsecured flattened boxes are a trip hazard, especially in the Duval Street corridor. Stacked and flattened boxes, if unsecured, can be as slippery as ice for a pedestrian.
According to Waste Management District Manager Greg Sullivan, commercial entities must have a commercial recycling account in order to recycle their cardboard. He noted that commercial recycling rates cost less than trash rates, so an account actually saves businesses money.
To set up a commercial recycling account contact Waste Management at 305-296-8297.
Cardboard is one of the easiest materials to recycle. So save money and the planet by safely containing and recycling your boxes.

REMINDER: REENTRY STICKER VEHICLE WINDSHIELD DECALS ARE AVAILABLE FOR MONROE COUNTY RESIDENTS
MONROE COUNTY, FL – Monroe County residents can pick up one reentry sticker for each registered vehicle by providing proof of residency at a Monroe County Tax Collector’s office. Proof of residency includes a Florida Driver’s License and vehicle registration, or a property bill with an out-of-county vehicle registration for out-of-county residents who own a home in Monroe County. These stickers make reentry easier if checkpoints are required to assure safe re-entry into the Keys following a destructive storm that causes a public safety issue.
The new system is barcoded with color-coded stickers for zone-by-zone reentry. Lower Keys residents from the south end of the 7 Mile Bridge to Stock Island (MM 40 to MM 4) will be dark pink, Middle Keys residents from the south end of the Long Key Bridge to the north end of the 7 Mile Bridge (MM 64 to MM 47) are aqua, and Upper Keys residents from the county line including Ocean Reef to the north end of the Long Key Bridge (MM 113 to MM 64) will have a purple decal. The City of Key West requires its own sticker, which is white. If City of Key West residents already have a City of Key West reentry decal, they do not need to pick up a new one.
WHERE TO GET REENTRY STICKERS
Residents from Ocean Reef to Stock Island: Stickers are available at the Monroe County Tax Collector’s office locations from 8 a.m. to 4:45 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Tax Collector Locations:
Key West - 1200 Truman Ave, Ste 101, or the DMV at 3304 N. Roosevelt Blvd
Marathon - 3015 Overseas Hwy
NEW LOCATION: Big Pine Key – 247 Key Deer Blvd (Tuesday through Thursday 9 a.m. to 2:45 p.m.)
Plantation Key - 88800 Overseas Hwy
Key Largo - 101487 Overseas Hwy
Residents who live in Ocean Reef: Stickers are available at Ocean Reef Public Safety, 110 Anchor Dr., Key Largo.
Residents in Key West: STICKERS ARE THE SAME, IF YOU ALREADY HAVE THIS STICKER YOU DO NOT NEED A NEW ONE. If you do not already have a reentry sticker, they are available at Key West City Hall, 1300 White St., or the Key West Police Department, 1604 North Roosevelt Blvd, and the tax collector’s main office at 1200 Truman Ave, Ste 101. The hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
Stickers will be available throughout the year, but do not wait until a storm is approaching to pick up a sticker. There are plenty of stickers, so no need to rush over, but add it to your list in for next time you are running errands. Stickers will not be available once a state of emergency is declared in Monroe County, which occurs several days before a storm is forecast to strike. For more information on reentry after a storm, visit www.monroecountyem.com/reentrystickers.

UP NEXT OUR WEEKLY FEATURE FROM BILL AND LINDA KLIPP "PHOTOGRAPHS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AND THE KEYS" BUT FIRST PART 2 FROM WWW.UPBEATNEWS.COM "BIG TIME CELEBRITIES THAT DON'T GET HIRED ANYMORE"
Cee-Lo Green became an extremely popular name after his pop hit “F*** You" flooded radio stations. He had previously gained fame under the moniker Gnarles Barkley (alongside producer Danger Mouse) but decided to drop the act. He got really popular and stayed relevant, even landing a seat as a judge on The Voice. He seemed like a nice guy yet a little stern at times, but that was far from the truth. Cee-Lo ended up sending out a homophobic Tweet in 2011 to a record producer who critiqued a song of his. He lost his seat on The Voice and eventually ran into some trouble with the law. He's taken a back seat in the music world but is still trying his best to become relevant once again.
The most tragic "blacklist" is when an actor no longer has the star quality they used to have. This is currently what's happening with Elisha Cuthbert, who is famous for her roles in 24, House of Wax, and Girl Next Door. Her role as Kim Bauer on 24 was ranked first in Entertainment Weekley's poll titled '20 Most Annoying Characters Ever.' Her last movie role was in 2017. She played Mary in Goon: Last of the Enforcers. Her only role right now is in Netflix's Ranch. Her only role in 2020 was on Canada's Drag Race.
Kirk Cameron successfully finished up his role on Growing Pains and garnered thousands of fans. It didn't take long for him to decide to become a mouthpiece for American Christians. Sadly, he chose a more volatile path than most would have and used his platform to voice hateful militant opinions under the guise of Christianity. Cameron never failed to tell any media outlet that interviewed him of his disdain for "sinners," which always included homosexuals and women. Naturally, Cameron hasn't found a job in Hollywood and will most likely stay on the blacklist.
No one will forget Roseanne Barr's fall from grace. She had an extremely popular show that was a revamp of the original show that got her popular. The public loved it, but Roseanne had to go and ruin it by tweeting out racist things about Barrack Obama's former Senior Advisor. To make it worse, she fought people on whether or not she was acting racist and then continued to say more racist things. ABC swiftly canceled her season and revamped the show without her. She's been blacklisted ever since

Osorno Volcano rising above Llanquihue Lake in southern Chile
At roughly 330 square miles, Llanquihue is Chile’s second-largest lake, and its wide expanse is an appropriate match for what rises majestically above its shores. Osorno Volcano is one of the titans of the Chilean Andes, and a true icon of its country. This active volcano is frequently compared to Japan’s Mount Fuji due to its similar conical shape and snow cap. Unlike Fuji, however, Osorno retains its dusting of white year-round. Although it tops out at ‘only’ about 8,700 feet high in elevation—in contrast to Fuji’s more than 12,000 feet—Osorno’s peak is draped in glaciers, and catches the abundant moisture funneled into this coastal region by maritime rainfall patterns.
Osorno Volcano is a 2,652-metre tall conical stratovolcano lying between Osorno Province and Llanquihue Province, in Los Lagos Region of Chile. It stands on the southeastern shore of Llanquihue Lake, and also towers over Todos los Santos Lake. Osorno is considered a symbol of the local landscape, and is noted for its similar appearance to Mount Fuji.
