Hope you had a good Easter weekend

This was one of the coldest ones we've had in years.
Snow off and on all weekend, so much for spring.  At least it's melting away by noon each day. The flowers are taking a beating at times, but still coming back for more.  Getting a little more wildlife out there, also.
More silly pictures, double-click to enlarge.

The magpies have a nest they're working on.

The robins are wandering about.

We have whole flocks of doves; they eat a lot of weed seeds.

More varieties of daffodils.

I'm not sure what variety of mushroom this is, or whether it's edible; my neighbor might know, since she harvests a lot them at different times of the year.


I'm going to miss the space program when they shut it down.  Some people consider it a waste of money, but knowledge is valuable.  And a lot of spinoffs came out of it; the sophisticated electronics we now enjoy, and a lot of new and useful materials.


I'm afraid I have to agree with this article;  much of the media has been manipulating the political scene; every time I hear someone wetting themselves talking about the "extremists" in the tea parties, I wonder where they were when the left wing was raising a ruckus, and was treated a lot different.  I never liked Bush, but I think it quite hypocritical when people who made all sorts of insults and allegations against his bunch get upset if someone hints that our current POTUS is not The Messiah.  Politicians are the same on either side; if you think one side has a moral superiority over the other, then I've got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you; cash only and small bills, please.


Helluva deal with the earthquake on the west coast; I'm actually surprised the casualties weren't higher.  Good luck to those people in California and Mexico who are having to deal with it.

Meleah: glad to hear it. Hope your Easter was good, also.

James: thanks. Personally, I'm getting tired of the cold and the snow.

And we had the WARMEST Easter I can remember in years. Hope it starts warming up there soon.
