To Compost Or Not

A circular economy, where we use, reuse, recycle, save money, and save our planet. I haven’t gotten to read the magazine myself, yet, but I hear National Geographic has devoted its latest issue to helping us with that concept. I can’t wait to read it. It seems that almost everyday, I find a way to…

Log-Lines

Another political debate is over. Interesting. One thing you find out is who can fight. A good thing to know because there is going to be a big one (fight) right up till the November election. Can’t say as I’m looking forward to it, but the good thing is, I learned where the ‘off’ button…

Daunting Dullness

The sun made fleeting attempts to best the clouds, but it was futile. The temperature wasn’t below freezing, but I still spent most of the day indoors.

Hindsight

How lovely it is to see a gift used, appreciated, and enjoyed. I recently gave one such gift to a friend, and I have gotten such pleasure out of watching the enjoyment it has given him. That’s what I call a good gift. I am not always so good at the gift giving, let me…

Eagle Tree

A few days ago, a dozen magnificent bald eagles graced the neighborhood giant cottonwood tree. They come once a year, at least, and practice with the youngsters. It is fascinating to watch. An adult will take off with a few immature eagles and they will circle and fly patterns until returning. Then another group will…
