Hmmmm. I went away from the GB this morning, but I couldn’t keep my mind on my work, and had to come back in to comment.

Earlier, I looked at CAM 5 with the owl behind bars and with wire screen over his cage so he can’t fly away, as he would if he could. Good photo, Sonya Nic Rafferty. It haunts me. The hooting of the free owls in nature near my rural home puts me to sleep every night. I’ll not hear them again without remembering this caged creature.

My thinking about zoos and nature parks has changed, over time. I used to love them, took my kids to see the animals up close…thought it educational for children. I’ve begun to weigh that educational value against the loss of freedom and a natural life for the caged ones…and caging any critter only for that comes in a poor second, though those facilities do a much better job for the inmates than they used to.

Continued...

Cont.

There are rehabilitation facilities, where animals are kept only if they can’t be cured and released back into the wilds, there are scientific study facilities that add to our medical knowledge for humans and animals, there are places that keep species in order to keep them from going extinct. I think they are sad, but justified. And to hell with my kids getting to see nature up close…it isn’t nature, or natural, and it may very well be incredibly cruel.

OK, that’s off my mind. I’m off to work.

Y’all Take Care.

No problem, Micilin. I didn\'t mean to be seeming smarmy or superior over showing the pics of beautiful natural rural Florida, it\'s God\'s gift, and we are lucky that it\'s our home and that ordinary people can enjoy it.

You get over that fear of flying and come over, I\'ll help you see it for yourself.

Ha ha. Yep, the \"Thong Man\" or \"Mr. Speedo\" has been around for some time. I\'ve seen him several times, riding his bike around town. I wondered when he would be arrested.

There used to be a man around town on street corners, wearing a big crown and a long royal cloak with a fur edging, handing out tracts about the end of the world. Harmless, everybody liked him, just a local character not quite right in the head, like Dublin\'s Johnny Forty-coats. Mr. Speedo has a high likely-hood of causing trafic accidents, though. It\'s quite startling to run across him while driving. Hehehehehe.

Whatho chaps

Well that\'s it the long summer school hols are over and I should have a full staff again on Tuesday so things should start to get back to some semblance of normalcy - hectic as opposed to manic.

It\'s another bank holiday weekend and I gotta say I\'m looking forward to three days away from this darn desk even if there are 101 chores around King Towers.

Perhaps I\'ll have a chance to get out and about with my new all-singing, all-dancing camera.

Patricia - Hope you don\'t think I was being personal about your relatives\' finances, I have nothing but admiration for anyone who works hard to make a comfortable life for themselves.

Have a good weekend y\'all.

It\'s a good thing you didn\'t listen to the cleeks, Liz. You\'d never have gone to sleep.

Yah-hoo. 7 minutes of Chuck Berry, anybody doing \"Dixie\", and Eric Clapton, the king...I\'m wired, now. Thanks, Webbie.

I\'m off to start the weekend. Y\'all have a good one.

Pretty shot on CAM 5, Eamon, the Mountain Ash tree stands out beautifully against that misty mountain landscape in the distance. I didn\'t know \"Mountain Ash\", and googled it, it is the same as the fabled \"Rowan\", the \"tree of the Druids\". You plant one near your house to keep away spirits, and on a grave to keep the occupant from rising. The wood is used traditionally for window and door lintels for spiritual reasons as well.

\"Cheeks as bright as Rowans are,

Brighter far than any star,

Fairest of the fair you are, That\'s the toast for Marie.\"

Now we\'ll see if Annette thinks I sang that song correctly. Hehehehehe.

Everybody have a nice day!

Nice picture on CAM5 Eamon, it reminds of my Dad\'s mountain ash tree. He had one in his garden, in the fall when the berrys fell & started rotting the robins would eat them & get drunk. The neighbors cat would take the robins into their back porch, kind of storing food for winter. Rob came home one evening to find about 12 drunk, maimed birds flopping about in his porch. He asked my Dad if he could borrow his chainsaw to cut the tree down

Hello all,

I must apologise for taking so long to offer a heartfelt thank you to all of the GBers who offered their condolences on the recent passing of my dear sister Chris.

Her passing came as a great blow to all of us in the family, and in the quiet moments the terrible grief slips in again and again.

To all who contacted us here on the GB and in private a warm hug and know that you are all appreciated.

To those who contacted me in private I promise to be in contact very soon.

Liz, your sisters Patty and Chris were at the funeral and it was great to see them. Patty is in one of the pictures I put in the slideshow I made as a little memory of Chris, it\'s in my newer blog which is linked from the old one.

Again thank you everyone, and to Webbie for making this facility for making friends, my gratitude.

Jim

I\'m glad you are not too incapacitated from your tumble, Mies. Just enough so that Mr. Mies had better take you out to your favorite restaurant for a nice dinner. That is if he ever wants to hear the end of it. Hehehehehe.

It seems I have too many things going on around here, can\'t seem to finish anything. I\'m getting tired, I need a vacation from projects. Maybe I need to arrange a kidnapping, like Webbie does, to get some time off.

I hope Annette and Franka are having a nice day and good weather in Dresden. Annette sounded like she enjoys that city.

Back at school, now, Steph? Have a good first week.

See you all later. Take Care.

Ah, turf. It does have a distinctive scent when it\'s burning. You can buy incense with that smell on some of the Irish net stores. I guess they sell it to expatriate Irish who long for the smell of home. Interesting information path to explore with the cleek. Thanks Webbie. And thanks, Mark Westgate, for the pic.

Nice you found your dad\'s song, Webbie, probably from around 1950? I remember it. I think a song and a remembered scent are the two things that can bring back an old memory the quickest.
