It’s a Mammoth Discovery!

Quite literally!  In the Yukon region of Canada, some miners came upon a natural wonder.  They found a 30,000-year-old, well-preserved Woolly Mammoth baby.  The mummified remains were well-protected by the near-frozen ground in which they were found during mining excavations. The article on Fox News describes the state of preservation, and other background information on …

Washington State Pastoral-a break from all the ugliness

With Antifa and Insane abortion promoters firebombing women' clinics; perverts celebrating their perversion in the streets of many cities, and Supreme Court Justices being threatened with death, I thought I'd try to add some beauty to take your mind off all the filth.  Below are some photographs of my state, Washington's rural areas, whose natural …

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #205: The Eyes have it

My first thought upon seeing this week's topic was "I rarely photograph people, so I don't have many faces".  However, upon further reflection, it occurred to me that there are a pair of quite striking eyes right in our own house.  They belong to our black cat. This photo deserves a caption.  Can you suggest …

CFFC: Landscapes and Waterscapes

What do you think of when someone says landscape?  The wide-open spaces of the prairie?  Big mountain ranges in the distance?  And what is a waterscape?  The ocean?  A winding river?  How about all of the above! Just last Sunday, we drove home from Leavenworth on US Highway 2.  It was a beautiful day, and …

Sunday Stills: The Solstice is Here!

Last year at this time, the temperature was over 100F here in Western Washington.  This is how our black cat dealt with the extreme heat. We are fortunate not to be covered in a thick layer of black fur.  Right now, in Everett at just after noon, it is 65F, cooler by far, but expected …

CFFC: Vehicle Details

First, let's define "vehicle".  Did you know that the derivation of the word "Vehicle" comes from the Latin word for "to carry"?  So, a vehicle doesn't have to have wheels, or be propelled by an outside force.  It just has to carry something or someone.  I spent ten years as a hospital pharmacy technician in …

Wordless Wednesday: Come Outdoors with me

I understand from Terri's Post this week, that June is Outdoors Month.  The photos below were taken outdoors in places we have been.  I am frustrated that my bad knee prevents me from doing much walking these days (re-injured my repaired ACL in left knee last week).  In any case, I'm no athlete, and the …

Sunday Stills Monthly Color Challenge: #Pink?

Let it be hereby known to all present that I Hate Pink!  I never wear pink, I don't buy pink furniture or accessories, and I don't like pink precious stones (red is my color).  However, that doesn't mean that I ignore pink things around me, and sometimes even admire them.  For instance, when I bought …
