New book: Italy and Greece, Watercolors by R.V. Cassill

During the Spring of 1983, author and artist R.V. Cassill and his wife, Kay, traveled to Italy and Greece.

These are some of the watercolors he painted on that trip.

Mr. Cassill is the author of over 20 novels and numerous short story collections.

He was also a lifelong visual artist, producing drawings, watercolors, oil paintings, lithographs, and sculptures in wood, metal, concrete and paper mache.

TRIUMPH 21 3TA .350 CC. TWIN CYLINDER. BATHTUB DESIGN.1957-66

Image by ronsaunders47
n 1962, the last year of the "pre-unit" models, Triumph used a frame with twin front downtubes , but returned to a traditional Triumph single front downtube for the unit construction models that followed. The twin down tube, or duplex frame, was used on the 650 twins, as a result of frame fractures on the Bonneville. Introduced in 1959, for the 1960 model year, it soon needed strengthening, and was dropped in 1962, with the advent of the unit engines for the 650 range. The 3TA (21) was the first unit construction twin, soon followed by the short-stroke, 490 cc "500" range.

3TA commonly referred to as "Twenty One", manufactured 1957-66, displacement 350 ohv twin Meriden ‘Bathtub’ enclosure.

Mother sea otter with rare twin baby pups

Mother sea otter with rare twin baby pups, presumed to have been born just one or two days earlier on June 23-24, 2013. Photo taken 24 June 2013, Morro Bay, CA. AKA Southern sea otter and California sea otter, Subspecies E. l. nereis, Coast of Central California.

Here is a Wired Magazine article covering my photos of the twin sea otter pups –
www.wired.com/wiredscience/2013/06/rare-sea-otter-twins/

AOL’s Huffington Post also covered my sea otter twins story on 7/1/2013..
www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/07/01/sea-otter-twins-born-ca…

Wiki en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_otter says “Birth usually takes place in the water and typically produces a single pup weighing 1.4 to 2.3 kg (3 to 5 lb). Twins occur in 2% of births; however, usually only one pup survives. At birth, the eyes are open, ten teeth are visible, and the pup has a thick coat of baby fur. Mothers have been observed to lick and fluff a newborn for hours; after grooming, the pup’s fur retains so much air, the pup floats like a cork and cannot dive. The fluffy baby fur is replaced by adult fur after about 13 weeks.”

animals.pawnation.com/lifespan-marine-otter-1756.html says “Female sea otters give birth to their pups under water. In most cases only one pup is born; rarely, a female sea otter gives birth to twins. Because a mother otter cannot care for two pups, one of the twins will die. For the first couple months of an otter pup’s life, he lives on his mother’s belly. She protects the pup from predators, grooms him and feeds him. Male otters do not assist in care of the young.”

marinebio.org/species.asp?id=157 says “Typically, there is only one pup per pregnancy. On the rare occasion of twins, the mother can only raise one. Her food requirements are large, and so are the pups. The mother would have a hard time getting enough food for two additional mouths. Unlike the river otter, the sea otter mother is the pup’s cradle, protection, and home for the first months of its life. The mother would only have room for one pup.”

Sea Otters (Enhydra lutris), from a raft of about 25, Mostly Females, many being Moms with their pups (often plopped on their Mom’s tummy), near Target Rock in the Morro Bay Harbor, where the Sea Otters almost always hang out, just SE of Morro Rock, 24 June 2013, Morro Bay, CA.
