Visit to Kent Island, MD; tornado damage still evident from July 24

I made a brief day trip today to Kent Island, MD, to Stevensville and then to Bay City, which has damage from an F2 tornado which developed from a waterspout on the Chesapeake Bay July 24. Many houses have roof tarp and at least one that was completely destroyed was still there.

There is a house on the Queen Anne County beach park that used to offer meals to people who crossed the Bay on the Ferry in the 1950s before the Bay Bridge was constructed.  I remember that on trips to Ocean City.

Outwrite LGBT Book Festival (2017) in Washington DC today, footage on self-publishing conference

I attended the DC Center’s 2017 Outwrite 2017 LGBT Book Festival today.  Compare to a posting Aug, 6m 2016.  Today I did not set up a table of my own, but I won’t get into why just now.

Here are some videos from a presentation by a group of publishers of GLBT material, especially fiction.
