View of the Kogelberg Mountains from Kogel Bay, South Africa
The mountain range rising high above the surf in our image is a biodiversity hotpot in the Western Cape region of South Africa. Substantial portions of the terrain are off-limits to visitors and protected within Kogelberg Nature Reserve. This reserve is surrounded by the wider protective embrace of the Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve. These overlapping parks help the area’s rich diversity of animals and plants flourish.

And speaking of plants—it’s been said that nowhere on Earth is there a greater floral diversity than here in the ‘heart of the fynbos,’ which describes the wide range of vegetation unique to this area. Nature’s show doesn’t stop where the fynbos ends, as some of South Africa’s best whale watching occurs on the rugged shores of the nature reserve, where the mountains meet the sea.

Bill Thompson Interior Worlds
“Act as though what you do makes a difference. It does“. William James American Philosopher. 
Bill Thompson paints as though he lives this quote every time he begins a new work. It is what he lives for along with his wife and children, of course. He will leave his exuberant mark on the world of art. 
He has developed a style of oil stick and acrylic mixed media work that is unlike anyone else’s, but has it’s roots in classic French painting.
That said his work most reminds this writer of the Fauvist. Early 20th century colorists like Monet and Darien who used vibrant color and heavy gesticulation causing a critic of the day to call them “The Wild Beasts”. 
And like the Fauvists he uses pure, brilliant color aggressively applied straight from the oil stick to create a sense of fireworks on the canvas. 
“The Quiet Place” 48 x 36 Is typical of Bill Thompson’s chandeliered interior spaces with exterior ocean views, dramatic Mozarabe archways, colorful patterns & tropical foliage. 
“Interior Worlds” 30 x 48 a bold horizontal, boasts five Romanesque arches above sailboats anchored in the cove below. The warm patterned furniture invites the viewer to peacefully contemplate the sunset on the horizon. 
If you’re looking for a legitimate work of fine art to uplift and make you feel good about the world during a difficult time, talented Bill Thompson’s interiors with ocean beautiful views are just the ticket. 
CDC protocols will be respected. Two days of private one hour viewings available by appointment.
For more information: 305-304-2323

PART 2 from Last Week (Two Sections in this March 22 Issue)
56 Rare Groovy Photos
Written by Harmon Leon
Emily Banks was 'Yeoman Tonia Barrows' on "Star Trek" in 1966.
Actress Emily Banks is best known for her role as 'Yeoman Tonia Barrows' on the 1966 "Shore Leave" episode of the original Star Trek series. But Banks also appeared on episodes of Dragnet, Love American Style, Fantasy Island, Bewitched, Airwolf, and Highway to Heaven. Not only did Banks try to swoon William Shatner while on screen - but also Elvis Presley. She appeared in The King's flick: Live a Little, Love a Little.
Banks got her start in 1960 when she was elected Miss Rheingold and appeared in ads and promotions for Rheingold Beer. 
Jerry O'Connell, River Phoenix, Wil Wheaton and Corey Feldman on the set of “Stand By Me” (1986)
This is one great movie. And also another reason to give Stephen King some respect; he wrote the short story which the screenplay was based on - which was called, The Body. The plot centers on four friends heading off into the woods to find a dead body of a missing child. Some changes were made to the plot of the film, from the short story, which included changing the location of Castle Rock from Maine to Oregon.
Rob Reiner directed the screen version, which helped launch the careers of River Phoenix, Will Wheaton, Jerry O'Connell, and Kiefer Sutherland as gang leader: John "Ace" Merrill. Oscar winner, Richard Dreyfuss did the narration for the film. Co-star, Corey Feldman, later went on to appear in the movie Meatballs 4.
Bob Dylan playing music on a porch in Greenwood, Mississippi. 1963 
Early Bob Dylan was the coolest. Here's a kid from the small town of Hibbing, Minnesota, who went on to conquer the international music scene, simply with great lyrics, a raspy voice, and a guitar. A champion for the people, on July 2nd, 1963, Dylan and folk singer Pete Seeger performed in a cotton field in Greenwood, Mississippi - as part of a civil rights voter registration rally.
Here's a shot of Dylan playing on the back porch of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) office - which was one of the major Civil Rights Movement organizations of the '60s.
John Kennedy, Jr. at Hyannis Beach in 1980.
Ah yes, to be JFK Jr. - rich, hunky, the son of a president, and one of America's elite. Here he is on a Labor Day Weekend in 1980, enjoying the weather at Hyannis Beach, Massachusetts. JFK Jr. was born in 1960, two weeks after his father was elected president. His childhood nickname was "John-John," which made reporter think they were mishearing JFK when he called him "John" twice in quick succession.
In 1995, JFK Jr. started the glossy political magazine, George. He also did an acting stint when he appeared on the sitcom Murphy Brown. In the episode, Kennedy visits Brown's office to promote his magazine. He appeared as himself - which was quite an acting stretch.
Here's a man riding on top of a mattress truck in Atlanta traffic, 1968. 
This looks like a scene straight out of the TV show, The Beverly Hillbillies or Sanford and Son. Here's a man who takes leisure to a whole new level as he rides on top of a pile of mattresses in Atlanta traffic. Apparently, driver safety codes in 1968 weren't as strict as they are today . I'm not sure if the man is riding high on top of the pile for fun or to secure the bounty of mattresses?
A lot was going on in Atlanta during 1968. It was the year the Memorial Arts Center - which provided a new home for the High Museum of Art and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. It was also the year that the city moved the Milwaukee Braves to Atlanta - which changed the face of baseball.
Jack Nicholson and Anjelica Huston listening to records at home, 1971. 
This was one crazy Hollywood power-couple. In 1971, Nicholson was already a screen icon after appearing in Easy Rider, Five Easy PiecesCarnal Knowledge, and, of course, Little House of Horrors. Houston, at the time, was a former model and daughter of legendary film director, John Houston. At 21, Houston left her modeling career and moved from New York to Los Angeles - where she immediately fell in love with Nicholson. The two would later star together in the 1985 movie, Prizzi’s Honor, which won Houston an Oscar. Their relationship lasted for 17-years; only to end when Nicholson told Houston he was having a child with a younger woman. Whoops! 
Jeff and dad Lloyd Bridges in 1951.
Wow! How much does Lloyd Bridges look like Sean Penn in this photo from 1951? Here's the screen icon with his son, future screen icon Jeff Bridges - with a photo taken on Father's Day. Jeff was born in 1949, and grew up with this siblings in the Holmby Hills section of Los Angeles. When he was 17, the future "The Dude" from The Big Lebowski - toured with his father in a stage production of a show called: Anniversary Waltz. He later moved to New York City to study acting and served for seven years in the United States Coast Guard Reserve.
While growing up, Jeff had a close relationship with his older brother Beau, who acted as a surrogate father when their acting dad was working

HELEN, BEN AND COLE HARRISON SEND REGARDS; AND TELL US
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.

MONROE COUNTY, FL – Monroe County Fire Rescue Battalion Chief Alvin “Cab” Bentley was awarded his 20 years of service pin for his dedicated service to the Florida Keys community. “It’s been a fantastic journey and I continue to be fortunate and blessed to serve the citizens and visitors of Monroe County,” said Bentley. At 11 years old, Bentley was a junior fireman with his father’s volunteer fire department before becoming a paramedic before starting with Monroe County Fire Rescue in 2000 as a Firefighter/Paramedic. He was drawn to the morale and camaraderie at Monroe County Fire Rescue.
 
In 2002, Bentley was promoted to Battalion Chief and in 2012 moved to Key West International Airport Fire Station 7, where he oversees all Aircraft Rescue and Fire Fighting (ARFF) operations and services. “BC Bentley has made such a positive impact on ARFF operations since being assigned to this post,” said Deputy Chief Steve Hudson. “He exemplifies customer service and always serves our community with pride and dignity.”

PART 2
56 Rare Groovy Photos
Written by Harmon Leon

Perms and Aqua Net hairspray were popular back in 1987! 
Oh my God! Is this a cast photo from an 80s version of the movie, Children of the Damned!? The 1980s was known as the era of big hair. And big hair didn't get big on it's own; these coiffures needed a lot of products. That's where perms and Aqua Net hairspray came in. During this era, hair spray wasn’t as good at giving a natural look. So when people used a product such as Aqua Net, it tended to make hair look crunchy: but big and crunchy. Despite doing harm to the ozone layer - the product gave teens that desired look and feel they craved. It also made them look like they were extras in a 80's Poison music video.
Janis Joplin in front of the sign, Port Arthur, Texas - her hometown. 
Janis Joplin is the most famous person to ever come out of Port Arthur, Texas. In high school, she was a misfit and bonded together with the school's other outcast - who shared a common loved for blues music. She later said that's what influenced her to become a singer. Joplin went to the University of Texas - at Austin, where she performed with a folk trio called the Waller Creek Boys and socialized with the staff of the campus humor magazine: The Texas Ranger.
Last year, Joplin's childhood home in Port Arthur was up for sale. It was originally listed at $500,000 but was reduced to $200,000; despite being appraised at $52,500. I guess no one wants to live in Port Arthur; not even in a music icons former home.
Chevy Chase tries to eat in the midst of a food fight, 1970s. 
Yes, in a parallel universe, Chevy Chase was once the hippest comedian of the era. During the 70s Chevy Chase had a moment of being the reigning king of comedy. He was the first breakout star on Saturday Night Live - during the first season back in 1975. He gained fame by being the host of Weekend Update - which has gone on to became a staple of SNL. Chevy, though, did it best.
Chase got his start as a writer. He once wrote a one-page spoof of Mission: Impossible for MAD magazine in 1970. What kick-started his career was becoming a cast member for The National Lampoon Radio Hour - which featured the likes of Gilda Radner, Bill Murray, and Brian Doyle-Murray. The show went on to become an off-Broadway revue called, Lemmings, which also featured a young John Belushi. When Lorne Michaels started SNL - he basically scooped the best talent from National Lampoon. And the rest is Chevy Chase history...
Bob Marley, Mick Jagger and Peter Tosh together in 1978.
Okay, if I could be a fly-on-the-wall with this trio. This photo was taken in 1978, around the time when Mick Jagger recorded with Peter Tosh on the song: Don't Look Back. Check out the video on YouTube - and you'll find a very high-looking Jagger singing along with Tosh. This photo was actually taken backstage at a Rolling Stones concert at the Palladium in New York on June 19th, 1978. 
Reggae was a big influence on the Rolling Stone. The group covered the classic tune  Cherry Oh Baby - on their 1976 album, Black and Blue. In 2011, Jagger formed SuperHeavy a one-off supergroup that consisted of Bob Marley's son Damian.
Who remembers The Bounty Lady, Nancy Walker? 1970s television commercial. 
Nancy Walker was an actress best known in the 70s for her appearances on The Mary Tyler Moore Show and Rhoda. She was also known as the spokeperson for Bounty Towels - appearing on their TV commercials. On the spots, she played Rosie - a New Jersey diner waitress who uttered the product's slogan, "the quicker picker upper." It became a popular, iconic catchphrase. The Bounty commercials ran from 1970-1990. Walker credits her 'Rosie' portrayal for helping her land the role of Ida Morgenstern on The Mary Tyler Moore Show.
One of the memorable moments on the Bounty commercial series was the time that Rosie challenged football legend, Rosie Grier, to a quicker picker upper contest with an inferior paper towel. Can you guess which Rosie won?
Gilda Radner and John Belushi, 1976.
Check out these two comedy icons in a photo taken during the very first season of Saturday Night Live. This comedic pair had a performance history before they were cast on SNL. They appeared in the off-Broadway show, Lemmings, which was produced by National Lampoon - and also helped launch the comedy careers of Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Christopher Guest, and Brian Doyle Murray.
Belushi's first breakout character on SML was an uncanny musical impression of Joe Cocker, which he performed alongside the icon. Radner got her footing with her portrayal of Roseanne Roseannadanna - who crushed it with her appearances on Weekend Update. Sadly these two comedy icons both died young - leaving the world with less laughter.
