It just turned 2018 for our many loyal visitors from New Zealand!

In less than an hour, it will be 2018 for our visitors in eastern Australia & Asia. Australia covers several time zones, so it will take a few hours for all of it to got through the new year.

6 hours to 2018 in India.

We've got more legitimate users from India, & S.E. Asia than we had since the turn of the century. Thanks to our new servers, & my custom double firewalls, we're still safer than ever though while allowing more odd ISPs in.

We've had some record-breaking hits of 18,000 hits in a single day during the past week, with an unheard of 19,000 hits one day!

We won't break 5,000,000 hits in a single year like we did in 2015. That was our busiest year ever! But we just surpassed hits for 2016, coming very close to as many hits in 2007... our previous busiest year. We've had years from 1994 to 2004 over 4.5 milion hits, but I don't have exact figures, records, or memory on them. I can say in all confidence though, that we never had 5 million hits in a single year before 2015. I would have remembered 5 million. Indeed, in the past if we got close to 4 million a year, it was to much for me or the servers to handle, or more than I could pay to handle that kind of traffic, so would have to cut back traffic.

Welcome India, & Taiwan! It's great to have you back with us, & have a Happy New Year!

Of course, in many parts of Asia, they don't celebrate the new year for a month yet... in China it's almost a month long holiday as big as Christmas. If you're ordering anything from China or nearby countries near the end of January, expect almost a month delay before they ship anything, because so many are away on vacation, holiday, or celebrating. There's a huge work slow-down, scale-back, or many places close for almost a month in the region for those holidays.

In Alice Springs Australia, our warmest visitor is experiencing 97F (36C), with just a little over 3 hours before their new year & Monday. It will get up to 102F (39C) on their Monday afternoon there in about 13 hours. Our eastern Australian visitors will begin the new year in under 2 hours. For our many visitors in New Zealand it just turned to 2018 in just a few minutes ago.

Our coldest visitor is from Winnipeg, Canada currently at -21F (-30C). In just a couple hours it will get down to -28F (-33C), with a wind chill of -48F (-44C)!

The coldest spot in Antarctica is currently -13F (-25C) & the warmest at 37F (3C... it's a big continent). It's a toasty 21F (-6C) in Anchorage Alaska.

Here in Buffalo it's currently a breezy 2F (-17C) with wind chills around -11F (-24C). At the turn of the new year at midnight, it will be a windy -2F (-19C) here with a wind chill of -15F (-26C)! Forecasts show no end of the Artic temperatures in sight. The last time we had so many days in a row this cold, it wiped out a significant amount of the area's wildlife.

I don't think any movie with extreme bloodshed, violence, or a murderous crime drama can be considered a true Christmas movie, & is definitely not a happy holiday movie. I'd have a hard time watching that kind of crap any time of the year. I don't like movies & TV shows made just to shock & awe with excessive blood, violence, murder, crime, & foul language just for entertainment.

For the past week, most of the northern USA & Canada have been experiencing highs no more than in the teens F (-11C to -7C), & lows in the single digits to below zero (-20C to -9C). Evening, nighttime & morning wind chills have been 0F to -15F (-18C to -26C). Most of rest of the northern hemisphere much above the equator, which contains the bulk of human populations have been experiencing lows in the 40s F (4-9C) or lower.

It's hard to pinpoint exact visitor locations unless I'm right here at the time of their visit while trying to trace down an attacker. But it appears to be currently 11F (-12C) at your house with a wind chill of -4F (-20C) with 13-17mph winds. But you shouldn't expect any more snow until Thursday. Monday night & morning you will get down to 2F (-17C) with wind chills at -18F (-18C).

Is that cold enough for ya?

Meanwhile, in Alice Springs Australia, our warmest visitor is experiencing 97F (36C), with just a little under 4 hours before their new year & Monday. It will get up to 102F (39C) on their Monday afternoon there in about 13 hours. Our eastern Australian visitors will begin the new year in just over 2 hours. For our many visitors in New Zealand it will turn to 2018 in just a few minutes.

Our coldest visitor is from Winnipeg, Canada currently at -21F (-30C). In just a couple hours it will get down to -28F (-33C), with a wind chill of -48F (-44C)!

Hello everybody and welcome back to My Weekly Flickr.

Let me begin by wishing Betty and my friends on the board, as well as all the lurkers, a slightly early very Happy New Year. Hope it's a good one for everybody everywhere.

We remain in the deep freeze here in the Northeast, temperatures not getting out of the teens and feeling like single digits when the wind blows. Forecast calls for this to continue at least through this week. I continue to take my walks but I’m very glad when I finally get back home. Had another dusting of snow this morning which unfortunately was just enough to require my guy to come and move it. It’s hard for me to believe but it’s one year since I retired. Like so much of my life it passed very quickly but I certainly enjoy being retired and don’t regret the decision at all.

This week I took the long walk up Fifth Avenue to the Jewish Museum to see the exhibition Modigliani Unmasked. It’s an exhibit of his early drawings and when I queried my brother about it he said he didn’t think he would go as the drawings weren’t anything special. But I’m always looking for venues to visit and I decided I would check this one out. In addition to the drawings were sculptures and paintings and the paintings more than made the visit a success. The drawings were done in anticipation of his sculptures and were very simple and repetitive.  Many of the drawings and paintings came from the collection of Paul Alexandre. This is an old article from the UK newspaper The Independent which speaks of the discovery of a trove of 440 of Modigliani’s drawings, all of which were owned by Alexandre. http://www.independent.co.uk/arts-entertainment/art-market-mystery-of-the-modiglianis-a-cache-of-secret-drawings-has-been-discovered-in-paris-1453242.html  Amadeo Modigliani was an Italian Jew who painted in the early years of the 20th Century. This is a long review of a previous exhibition which explores his Jewish identity, how the museum promoted it and whether it’s valid. http://www.zeek.net/art_0408.shtml  This is a link to his Wikipedia page with many illustrations. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amedeo_Modigliani#Jeanne_H%C3%A9buterne

This is representative of the many drawings for his sculpture heads.

And while not the head depicted in the drawing this is representative of the actual sculptures in the exhibit.

There was a large drawing in watercolor and crayon of a caryatid. From the web I learned that a caryatid is a stone carving of a draped female figure, used as a pillar to support the entablature of a Greek or Greek-style building. Modigliani painted the one below which he gave to Jacob Epstein when they were friends in Paris together in 1912.  Their intention was to set up a studio together and they dreamed of creating a Temple of Beauty, a vast temple dedicated to all mankind and held aloft by a series of stone caryatids which Modigliani named 'The Pillars of Tenderness'. This Rose Caryatid is from the Norton Simon museum

This is a watercolor of Maud Abrantes, a married woman who for a time was his mistress. She was American and returned to America supposedly carrying his baby but nothing further about her or the baby was ever recorded. The wall card noted his depictions of her emphasized her eyes and ineffable sadness.

This painting, The Jewess, probably used Maud as a model.

Jeanne Hébuterne was his final lover. They lived together and she had his child but when they announced their engagement her family protested because he had a reputation of being a drug and alcohol abuser. When his diagnosis of tuberculosis was received the wedding was called off. Jeanne was pregnant with his second child when Modigliani died and she subsequently committed suicide the day after his funeral.

Portrait of Roger Dutilleul – This is a portrait of one of his patrons who unable to collect the works of more established artists acquired thirty-four paintings and twenty-one drawings of his, virtually ten percent of Modigliani’s late work.

Portrait of Doctor Devaraigne – The doctor was probably a friend of his. The wall card said that when a subject’s features were particularly striking he would exaggerate them.
http://the-athenaeum.org/art/detail.php?ID=1495

Hanka Zborowska – This is a portrait of the wife of the poet Leopold Zborowska who was also Modigliani’s last art dealer.  The wall card noted it was also likely the first of 12 portraits he painted of Hanka. He usually made multiple copies of his portraits. This one is from a private collection as were several others on display which was another incentive to see the exhibit.
http://www.secretmodigliani.com/rastellini/45.jpg

Lunia Czechowska – This is the accompanying wall card to this painting. It speaks of her friendship with the Zborowska’s and also mentions his instantly recognizable long necks.
Modigliani saw himself primarily as a sculptor. Even when declining health forced him to abandon the medium, he continued to think, draw, and paint as one. Lunia Czechowska, a good friend of Leopold and Hanka Zborowski, became acquainted with the artist and emerged as one of his favorite models. Here, Modigliani suppresses descriptive identity in the service of a universalized presence: he graphically captures Czechowska’s aristocratic bearing, depicting her like an icon. Her smooth, ethereal features and exaggeratedly long neck emphasize the image’s sculptural quality.

This is a link to a video discussion of the exhibit.

I’ve always enjoyed his portraits and this was a very enjoyable show which in addition to allowing me access to paintings in private collections also had material from venues I’ll probably never have a chance to visit.

Now let’s carefully walk across the ice pond to the Flickrs.
