JUST ABOVE SUNSET – as a commentary site – has gone dark, at least for now. For now there’s just occasional photography, and each Saturday that would be botanical photography.
Winter Whites (25 images): The are no flamboyant roses in Los Angeles in winter. Only the whites bloom on and on, And a bit of pink here and there. But that will do just fine. ~ Saturday, February 4, 2023
Pushing Up Daisies (35 images): “Osteospermum is a genus of flowering plants belonging to the Calenduleae, one of the smaller tribes of the sunflower/daisy family Asteraceae. They are known as the daisy-bushes or African daisies.” Of course they are. There are twenty or thirty species in the genus. These are three of them. They grow like weeds out here. You know. Winter. But they do go well with the hibiscus and whatnot. ~ Saturday, February 4, 2023
The editor is a former systems manager for a large California-based HMO, and a former senior systems manager for Northrop, Hughes-Raytheon, Computer Sciences Corporation, Perot Systems and other such organizations. One position was managing the financial and payroll systems for a large hospital chain. And somewhere in there was a two-year stint in Canada running the systems shop at a General Motors locomotive factory - in London, Ontario. That explains Canadian matters scattered through these pages. Otherwise, think large-scale HR, payroll, financial and manufacturing systems. A résumé is available if you wish.
The editor has a graduate degree in Eighteenth-Century British Literature from Duke University where he was a National Woodrow Wilson Fellow, and taught English and music in upstate New York in the seventies, and then in the early eighties moved to California and left teaching.
The editor currently resides in Hollywood California, a block north of the Sunset Strip.
