Snowbirds

Still more of our avian friends, visiting our yard for the excellent seeds and suet. This is our Song-sparrow.  See how puffed-up he is, against the cold.  He likes to hog the seed feeder-sometimes he will just sit there for long minutes. This is the female of our pair of Varied Thrushes.  Her chest-stripe is …

She’s a snow picture-taking fool!

I can't help it.  When we are snowed-in, I just have to get out the camera and phone and take pictures.  Yes, I'm betting that you're all getting tired of seeing pictures of my snowy backyard, but there's more snow today, and it's still snowing.  So, here are a bunch more pictures from this morning, …

And which political party is the real inciter of violence?

Just today, there are a couple of headlines that show which side of the aisle really incites violence, all day every day. First, there's the BLM Protest (actually a riot), taking place in New York City.  Eleven Leftist rioters were arrested in that little scuffle, and two New York City policemen were injured.  Violence, anyone? …

Please, everyone, pray very hard for my Hero, Rush Limbaugh

It is well-known that last January, Rush was diagnosed with Stage IV Lung Cancer.  He told us that his doctors told him that without treatment, his life-expectancy would be about two to three months.  He was aggressively treated all of 2020, and kept coming back.  Now, things are looking very grim, for Rush and for …

Lens-Artists Challenge #134: From forgettable to favorite.

These pictures are a perfect demonstration of how wonderful it is to have a camera with you wherever you go, just to capture spur-of-the moment images.  Yesterday, I took my husband to the ambulatory surgery center, to have a minor procedure, and I had three hours to kill while I waited for him to be …

There are grounds right now to Impeach President Joe Biden

When he took the OATH of office on January 20, Biden swore to uphold the US Constitution, and Faithfully Execute the Laws of the United States of America. Well, he has from Day One violated that oath.  The most egregious example is the way he is refusing to enforce existing Border-Control Laws on the US …
