Awesome moon

This was the moon last evening to say the least breath taking.
According to the information below we shall not be in the best location for the Eclipse. DUSKY LUNAR ECLIPSE: On Monday, Feb. 9th, the full Moon will pass through the outskirts of Earth's shadow, producing a penumbral lunar eclipse. The event will be visible to the naked eye as a dusky shading of the northern half of the Moon. Maximum eclipse occurs between the hours of 1400 and 1520 UT (6:00 am - 7:20 am PST). The timing favors observers in east Asia, Australia, Hawaii and western parts of North America. Visit for a visibility map, animations, and more information.

Tracking 101

Sweetie and I went out for a weekend experience with the Master Naturalist program.
We were involved with how to discern animal tracking.
The snow for certain help.
So here ar home, where we KNOW what critters abound, we learn to look and with that learn more.
This one was a GIVEN...
The critter that made the tracks is picture # 2 on this post.
TUNA the cat ;)
She walked with me, for sure wondering what in the world I was doing!
Nope it did not follow me ;)
Wisp of a wing impression from a bird taking off
Small bird tracks, might have been the same bird, but then this was around the bird feeder.

This is for you Sweetie

BUT you know I will be back… "Leaving on a Jet Plane" is a song written by John Denver in 1967 during a layover at an airport in Washington and recorded by the Mitchell Trio that year. The original title of the song was "Oh Babe I Hate To Go" but Denver's then producer, Milt Okun, convinced him to change the title. Denver wrote the song after his flight was delayed. Other artists recorded the song in 1967, including Spanky & Our Gang and Peter, Paul and Mary on Album 1700. It did not become a hit until Peter, Paul and Mary released it as a single in 1969. It turned out to be their biggest (and final) hit, becoming their only #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart in the United States. The song also spent three weeks atop the easy listening chart.

More with the new camera SOON ;)

Super Bowl XLIII

Let’s go Pittsburg Steelers!


HALFTIME: Steelers 17, Cardinals 7

Tense second half BUT

FINAL: Steelers 27, Cardinals 23

The second half was uglier, BUT I learned a new word Alacrity… That is a plus
