This creature could do a number on your head, eh?! Thatd mess up your day. It’s… so huge!

I love pterosaurs! I want to see one so bad, but I have lost the means to go where they hang out. Sigh.

Such sweet lines! A significant styling masterpiece.

Something I wrote in Feb 2017. It reminds me of Autumn.

The Lady In The Leaves

She walks the forest floors, nature within her breast,
Clasped tightly in her arms. Is a sleeping child at rest,
She is the grandmother of all things living
She shares all willingly, always giving
All she asks in return, is a gentle ear
She is worried, and she needs to share her fear

I’m growing older day by day, My time will come to pass away
You teach the children nouns and verbs
I will teach them plants and herbs
And animals of every hue, natures child wet with dew
Running to my cottage door, “come on Nan, let’s explore”
I am the lady of the leaves

Generations back in time, like the flower celandine
That means to travel like a swallow, she covers every field and hollow
Weaving her majik as she runs, to teach her daughters and her sons
The teaching of the ancient ones, nature’s cloak of joy she dons
A gift she is about to give, a chance for all of us to live
Upon the earth, an earth that healed, flowers filling every field
She is the lady of the leaves

She is alive in all of us, the birds with song, the bees that buzz
Where water runs, and streams trickle on
She brings the moon, she brings the sun
She brings our seasons, one by one
For time brings changes, things are made, things undone
She our lady of the leaves

Many names we call her by, She is mother earth, hear her cry
She is hurting, the pain is deep, so wounded that she cannot sleep
To rest is what she wants and needs, So to you she speaks and pleads
Help to cure me, help me heal, Nature turns like a spinning wheel
Weaving patterns lightening fast, the future counts, not what is past
Says our lady of the leaves

🙂 Nice




I love this so much I cannot even describe it to you.

This is so sweet. This is human behavior.

Don’t ever tell me that dogs aren’t people.


Be well.

Cool, eh? Diggin’ it.

Could easily be a critter. Could easily be a log, too. But the folks sound excited in the few seconds of audio we get. The shortness of the clip is a red flag but, hey, who knows.

possible champ animal ©2019 Katy Elizabeth

This, folks, is an exceptionally exciting image.

It was captured by my friend, full-time cryptozoologist Katy Elizabeth, on the sonar unit in her research vessel “Kelpie.”

That shape is undeniably suggestive of an aquatic animal. It’s rather sizeable, as well. It is, after all is said and done, a mighty fine shape to these old eyes.

Champ SearchI am sure there will be more of these. It is terribly unfortunate for our collective, vision-based minds that the waters of Lake Champlain are murky with dense plant life, as it makes photography a serious challenge.

I am digging the apparent resolution on her sonar gizmo, though. It is mighty good.

Visit Champ Search, eh.

The photography issue is a cultural “big one,” for some, but it’s just going to have to be … we shall proceed like modern astronomers … who use wacky wavelengths, occultations and spectrometrics to capture their prey … hey, man, we can watch our prey up close in real time, eh, what! Ha! Haha!


Be well.




Solar system wonderment…!

Some sort of a heat wave warms the rings of Uranus, even though the planet orbits far away from the sun.

New heat images of the planet, obtained by two telescopes in Chile, reveal the temperature of the rings for the first time: minus 320 degrees Fahrenheit (minus 195 degrees Celsius), or the boiling temperature of liquid nitrogen.

While that sounds cold by Earthly standards, consider that most of space is much colder, approaching a temperature at which atoms stop moving. This point is called absolute zero, which is roughly minus 460 F (minus 273 C).

Mysterious Glow Warms Rings of Uranus

A composite image of the atmosphere and rings of Uranus seen in thermal emission.

The scientists who captured the new images said they aren’t sure what’s causing the relative warmth. But the weird temperature proves that the brightest and densest ring at Uranus (also known as the epsilon ring) is very different from other ring systems in our solar system.…

This is way cool and rather shocking. At least to me. I would think the rings would be colder, but, like humanity, what do I know? Ha! Napundivricuala, that’s what!

If I ever need to replace my trusty old R2, this one is…

The winner.


Because it has TWO Thunderbolt 3 ports!

That’s HUGE!

It’s the only rig I’ve found, so far, besides it’s predecessor, the 550, that can boast that feature. I guess ASUS is the only one that “gets it.”
