Shirley Temple-Black 1928-2014

Child movie star Shirley Temple died of natural causes February 10, 2014, at home in Woodside, Calif., near San Francisco.
She was 85.
Shirley Temple-Black, the United States Protocol Officer to the Social, Humanitarian and Political Committees at the U.N., arrives prior to President Richard Nixon's arrival to speak before the General Assembly in New York City, on September 18, 1969.

She would later serve as U.S. ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

What’s Wrong With This Picture?
In a matter of a few days one couldn’t tell what season it is.
Saturday, December 21, 2013, began the Northern Hemisphere’s astronomical winter.
Is it winter? It seemed to be a couple of weeks ago,
Then it looked and felt like fall again.
And this weekend, eight weeks into winter, with a record high temperature of 71°, for the date, green is sprouting on the bush in my front yard. It is green a month earlier than last year.
Surely winter has not gone away, it has just relinquished its hold here and given the East-coast the honor of a good blast.
