Door number one, door number two, and door number three are found in downtown Naperville, Illinois, while the last one is from Urbana, Illinois.  I’m sure some of you remember “Let’s Make a Deal”, where host Monty Hall would ask people if they wanted “Door number one, door number two, or door number three.”  If you think it was a simple choice, there’s actually a lot of math/logic behind it.  Read about it here but for choosing a winner without any risk, take a look at the variety of doors on “Thursday Doors” or grab your camera and participate. Norm is our Monty Hall and all participants are winners.

I’m in the midst of hockey mania.  The first round of the Stanley Cup finals is drawing to a close with our Chicago Blackhawks in a seventh win-or-go-home game, so I’m occupied with trying to help them win.  Not much time to do an in-depth post.

But as we enjoy the end of a day of summer-like sun and temperatures just ahead of a much cooler day tomorrow, I thought I’d share a shot of this lovely mural on the side of a building in Hillsdale, Michigan, part of a project to bring murals to the town.  I’d say that as bricks in the wall go, these are winners!

I’m off again this morning for the City of Brotherly Love, Philadelphia. It’s a city filled with photo ops, as is any city, and I’d like to share a few shots from our time there over Thanksgiving. Enjoy your walk and bundle up. It’s cold.

The famous Love Stamp sculpture and historic City Hall flank the Christmas tree at the German market…

Walk along Grant Street in San Francisco’s China town and you’ll come to an alley that will take you on a trip from one culture to another (in more than one way) and from one time period to another.  At the other end of the alley is City Lights Books, established in 1953 and an icon of the Beat Generation.  As you walk along the alley, you will see paving stones with literary quotes and on the wall, beautiful, sometimes humorous, murals.  Take a trip down memory lane to a time when “beat” mean “beatnik”, not “Just beat it.”
