    I'm mildly claustrophobic but I freaking love the noise made by the mri machine. It's like some weird noises you'd hear in a cheap 80's scifi B movie lol.

    Although we live over a mile from the Yukon River, we have had a plethora of dragonflies hanging out around the yard and neighborhood as of about 10 days ago. They are delightful insects, almost constantly in motion and there seems to be a group of them traveling as a winged squadron, lol, not kidding. Frequently, when I ride one of the horses around the 5 km trail, we will have an escort for the first kilometer, lose it as we travel the pine forest, and then pick up another escort on the final two kilometers of the journey back to the stable.

    The ones that I have encountered look quite a lot like this one. Apparently, with the discovery of another new variety last week, we have 42 species of dragonflies in the Yukon. That's really good news for we have no shortage of mosquitoes for them to graze on.

    That is our log home. Gambrel roofs are frequently associated with barns but they add a lot of living space to a home as well, without the need to bulid a complete wall on the second story. At the time of construction, the cash flow was somewhat limited and a lot was done with sweat equity and bartering. Here is another photo taken in winter with a storm moving in, making for a dramatic backdrop.

    It's a lung.

    Vegetation (trees) provides us with breathable oxygen. Deforestation affects our ability to breathe, hence the barren* portion on lower right hand corner. That or its about lung cancer.

    Thank you for giving me your interpretation. Mine was definitely not in those guidelines.

    We could be neutering the planet's ability to repopulate its forests as well.

    However, if that is how they perform an orchiectomy in Hawaii, remind me not to visit the hospitals there.

    I have just recently discovered the delights of organic Medjool dates. They are exceptionally large, soft and sweet, completely unlike the varieties commonly used in baking.



    Medjools are often informally known as the “king of dates,” the “diamond of dates,” or the “crown jewel of dates” in reference to their elevated position. They are what is known as a “soft” date. The fruits are usually categorized as soft, dry, or semi-dry in reference to their texture and taste. Soft dates are usually considered to be the most exquisite in part because of how much harder they are to grow, as well as how much more susceptible they are to loss by birds and insects.

    I stumbled upon a means of getting 5lb of dates for free many years ago. I contacted the Saudi Embassy in Washington DC and told them I wanted information about Islam and the Hajj because I was considering converting. Not only did I get lots of pamphlets, I received a 5lb box of dates addressed to me supposedly as a gift from the high prince of saudi arabia himself. Just be sure to make the request during Ramadan. lol

    I've been using the Hubble XDF as my work background. It's hard to not just sit and stare at it, though.

    Shockingly beautiful insect.

    I have some of the standard green ones in my garden, but I have to keep moving them off my flowers because they eat my bees. I put them in the greenery out back and hope they will put a dent in the mosquito and fly populations.

    Did you notice the camera man wasn't down wind of the volcano? Always a good idea to choose your viewing position carefully.

    I've never surfed in Hawaii, but did see a few shark fins while surfing California beach cities beaches, and yes it was time to paddle to shore and get out for the day.

    A picture from the Cassinin probe of the cryovolcanism taking place on the surface of Enceladus, the sixth largest moon of Saturn.

    I have a program that ranomizes my desktop and this one came up yesterday. Couldn't help but stare at it in awe.

    I like it. Sorta makes you wish that it was a high resolution photograph so that we may zoom in to see more of the details, since we aren't likely to be there ourselves to witness an alien world where volcanoes spew something other than lava.

    Pansies and violas are among my favorite flowers, laregly because there is such diversity and intensity of color among them. This is an interesting perspective of a pansy...

    I've had the sunset over Victoria crater as my Facebook background for AGES. I just recently changed it to a thin section of the Moon rocks at Shorty Crater:

    That looks alot like Ronaldo from a few years ago playing for Man United against AC Milan, he is a great player but does the over acting bit at times.
