Evanston: El Nino?; the divorce rate for birds; SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE

        I first read of a probable strong El Nino this year in the NEW ZEALAND HERALD.  A little research reveals that the probability is high. 
        What this means varies by location; but for me it may mean weaker than usual or even reversed trade winds.  
        If you view the Earth Wind Map as I do each morning, you will have already observed rather weak trades and a substantial gap between them.  Heading to Hawaii first, I will be crossing the Equator in the Pacific more than a thousand miles father west than I ever have before.  GANNET doesn’t need much wind to keep moving; but she does need some.


        If I were a bird, I reasonably could expect to be an albatross.
        Except for that divorce rate.


        Saturday evening we watched SHAKESPEARE IN LOVE.  
        If you saw it when it was first released in 1998, as we did, but not since,  I highly recommend you do so again.  It is an immensely entertaining movie with a superb cast.  Peerless.
