I've posted a new pic in the buggy tread. I think it's a Robber Fly.

It's huge and has beautiful green eyes.

I was afraid to pick it up at first, but I got over that pretty fast!

He's a big fella with a very pointy "mouth." It could inflict some
serious damage, I'll bet. But he didn't use it on me. Thank You God.

I've looked it up and I think it's some sort of Robber Fly.

That pointy think sure looks scary!

An exciting bug find in my back yard just now. I saw one of the cats pawing
at it and had to go see what it was. It's a beauty, but I'm afraid it isn't
going to fly again. Dammmit.

Does anyone know what this is? Some sort of dragonfly or damselfly, maybe?

Mother Raccoon teaches her kit how to scale trees. She tries over and over until he finally gets it. Watch the adorableness:

I really want to make a sports joke about "Vancouver Island
Raccoons," but I can't think of one right now.

I have also red spots popping up and disappearing on my arms and they are itching.
Sometimes I Think it's melanoma.
Go to a doctor for an exam.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Melanoma
My mother did and she was told that her case was not melanoma.

I went and got some Hydrocortisone 1% for the heat rash, since that is what I was told to do today.

There is a pic on this thread.
Does it look the same?

Chickenpox and shingles are caused by the same virus, and once you've had chickenpox, this virus in the body and "resting". The virus becomes active again, you develop the disease shingles.
Usually it is people over 50 who suffer from shingles.
Looks like I have the same problem.


If you have shingles you will experience the worst pain ever! I have had shingles. It felt like someone was holding
a hot poker against my skin. If you have an itchy rash, that's not
shingles. Shingles feels like fire!

A video of a Swedish man wading through a freezing cold creek to rescue a baby elk has gone viral.

btw. Raccoons are called Tvättbjörn here literally translated to Washing Bear.


Thank God for men like him.

Okay. I had to steal this photo and resize it to get it where I could
actually post it here. What a pain.

So this is not my photo. It's something worth sharing, however.

Some really good news for the family of the three women who drowned.

http://www.kwtx.com/home/headlines/306295601.html

If you donated, thank you very much. If you didn't, that's okay, too.
There have been so many times that I couldn't donate to help someone
that I would never hold it against anyone for not donating (unless
they were at least a millionaire). ;-)

Saw this opinion post in the side bar whilst browsing for other newsworthy content...

On Sunday morning three people I knew were swept away in their minivan
when they tried to cross a bridge over the Leon river. There was water
over the bridge, but they must have thought they could make it. They
didn't. Their bodies remained in the minivan in the river until today,
when the water subsided enough to expose the top of the vehicle.
Ironically, they were on their way to church.

I'm posting here because I know some of you are very generous, and I'm
asking for help to pay their final expenses. Three funerals are going
to be very costly. Someone (not I) has set up a donation page. If you're
willing and able, please make a donation. Here's the link:

Here's a link to one of the news reports:

http://www.kcentv.com/story/29230128/three-bodies-pulled-from-submerged-minivan-in-coryell-county

Thank you. And please, never try to cross a flooded road no matter how
confident you feel that you can make it.

Some more flying racoons.


This is clearly animal abuse. :-(

I'm posting because I'm lost. This will help me locate myself.

Thanks for your patience.

I think that the best thing we can do to protect wildlife is to find kind, gentle and supportive ways of limiting the population growth, and with time reducing the total population, of our own species. We human beings are far too successful a species. We threaten the existence of wildlife, the health of our planet and ultimately the very survival of ourselves.


Hear, hear!

Typical trigger happy USA police. Bastards.

I agree that it was very unfortunate that the cat had to be destroyed, but Chris please know that mountain lions tend to eat joggers now and again. Would you want your niece jogging in a park if a mountain lion had taken up residence there?

Correct, the park here had a Bobcat near the dumpsters a few years back, considering this is a family park with children running around, the park manager at the time was completely justified in killing the Bobcat(Lynx), which is almost as big as a Mountain Lion(or Puma or Cougar, same animal, different names) and just as lethal..


What happened to capture, relocate, and release?

Going fishing :)


So did he ever actually eat them? I suppose we'll
never know.
