+CJP Photos shared his Spotlight Thursday here today.
#cjpphotos    #spotlightthursday   #k10friends   #k10bb  
Today I'm spotlighting, my Dad's Osprey Tagging friend:
Rob Bierregaard.  Rob and my Dad Tag Ospreys on Martha's Vineyard.   The picture is my Dad holding an osprey after it had been tagged.  

Rob will be in Connecticut next Thursday on the Connecticut River tagging and I will have the opportunity to see how the process is done.  Want to know more about Rob Bierregaard?  Here's his NEW website:

The picture with the red short in the right corner is another of my Dad holding an osprey.

There will be no Spotlight Thursday next week as I'll be up and out too early for the tagging..  Spotlight Thursday will return in two weeks.

Here's my Sunday Seventeen + 1 today.  Thanks to these seventeen people I interacted with in the past week.  This is why I continue to stay on G+.  As I've said here before, G+ is such a vibrant community and these 18 people are one reason why.

Everyone here and not just these 18 make G+ so welcoming not just to me but everyone.

11 Strikeouts John Lackey:
He seems to have righted the Red Sox ship; at least for one night.

Yeah, Wade.  Looks like the Pineada thing may have given them a spark.

Michael Pineda was ejected from the Red Sox game tonight for having pine tar on his neck.  He's either not to smart, extremely arrogant or a little of both.  He was shown having an illegal substance on his hand on April 10 while pitching for these same Boston Red Sox.

Why would he EVEN attempt to do something like this again and against the Red Sox to boot?:

CJP: Pineda may be "not too smart" , but he never pitched "for" the Red Sox.

Interesting take from Abraham-Hicks today:
If you intend to be of assistance, your eye is not upon the trouble but upon the assistance, and that is quite different. When you are looking for a solution, you are feeling positive emotion— but when you are looking at a problem, you are feeling negative emotion.

We're lucky the AL East is so mediocre this year or we'd be in deep trouble.  Most of the five teams in it are hovering around the .500 mark.  Well, the season's only 12% completed so plenty of time to make our move.

Saint Francis of Assisi says:
All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.

We can be that light.  We have that light.  We only have to use it.

I'm a Blogger, and a New England Landscape and Nature Photographer based in Madison, Connecticut. I've traveled outside of Connecticut, but mostly in New England.  Some exceptions:
--Key West, Florida
--Washington DC
--New York.
Put me in these circles:

I've taken Jonathon Barton's Circle Management Strategies and incorporated them into my own strategy.  That's why if you see me adding you to my own circles it's because I've been using Jonathon's strategies now

I blog about Spirituality and Law of Attraction. 
Check out my blog:

A bit about my spirituality:
I believe in a benevolent loving God
I believe we ALL come back. (Yes I'm talking about reincarnation.) I believe we return in groups.
I believe God created us and he won't forsake ANY of us.
I recently discovered Rob Bell's Book Love Wins and after reading it I realized Mr Bell and I believe the same things.
I believe we should follow our heart, follow our soul.
I believe we should find our own spirituality.  One should not be foisted on us.

I was baptized Catholic but I found my own way.
Some have begun calling me a universalist.
I'm not fond of tags but this one seems to fit me.
My day job is at the Scranton Library in Madison, Connecticut where I'm one of the IT professionals

I'm a voracious reader, sometimes reading two books a week.  I read EVERYTHING, but if my back is to the wall I'd have to say my favorite genre is Fantasy.
Some Favorite Fantasy Books in no particular order:
by Clive Barker

--Enchantment and Lost Gate
by Orson Scott Card

--Anything by Jonathan Carroll and Alice Hoffman
(These are my two FAVORITE authors.)

--Veil of Gold
by Kim Wilkins

The Galactic Milieu Trilogy
by Julian May:
--Jack the Bodiless
--Diamond Mask
--Bob Dylan
--Led Zep

--Kenny Chesney
--Lyle Lovett
--Tim McGraw
--Emmylou Harris

As you can see my musical taste is quite eclectic.  This is just a sampling of what I like.  Want to know more?  Just ask.

My friend, +Andrew Kaplan has been been my go to Web guy since the 2000s. Andrew hosts my two blogs: Wisdom and Life and Scranton Page Turner at +Walden Pond Design . There are plenty of hosting opportunities available, but since Andrew has taken care of me for over almost 15 years now I wouldn't trust my hosting service to anyone else. If you are looking for a reliable web host. Talk to Andrew.

Jeff created my business logo last year and I've gotten nothing but stellar remarks on it. I highly recommend Biz ID. He took the time to listen to my wants and needs and provided his own input and together we arrived at a welcome decision.

I visited Madison Therapeutic Massage for the first time over five years ago now. I could hardly walk. And I'm not exaggerating. After spending an hour with Jackie, I felt better than I had in months. I've been seeing her now once a month and she is a miracle worker! She keeps me fluid. She keeps me upright. I can't recommend her highly enough.

Been to Jia Mei Asian Kitchen twice already and have had two different meals. Both were outstanding. A small intimate restaurant with about 10 tables. Have not been disappointed yet. Staff has been friendly. Food has been healthy and amazing. Would NOT hesitate to recommend!
