Liguria with  +Rob Heron ♥

...........
Tell me to relax, I just stare
Maybe I don't know if I should change
A feeling that we share
It's a shame
Such a shame
Number me with rage
It's a shame
Such a shame
Number me in haste
It's a shame

House wrens use nest materials that often contain spider egg sacs. Once hatched, the spiders help keep mites and other parasites at bay as the wren nestlings grow.

Sneaky but good idea..
 
Common milkweed seeds are collected at oak savanna projects by private lands biologists. These seeds will be added to a grass forb mix to establish more edible vegetation for the monarch caterpillar.

A professor’s hunch is that birds are saying much more in warning of danger than previously suspected, and that other animals have evolved to understand the signals.

Monarchs are going to love Port Louisa National Wildlife Refuge in Iowa! Check out how well the milkweed is doing. How does yours look so far?

Story
Introduction
I'm retired and focused on living by doing what I can to maintain as much energy and autonomy as long as I can. I thought about what I want more of in the remainder of my life and realized it is more Earth, more outdoors, more nature-mindfulness. So I try be very mindful of the world and nature every day.

I am a Volunteer Naturalist at the Tualitin River National Wildlife Refuge. I enjoy frequent walks on the refuge and opening-up the wonder of the life out there to school children and the public as a naturalist. I do labor and committee work for the refuge too. It's all good. 

I have a WordPress blog about my experiences at the refuge titled My Tualatin River Refuge

Bragging rights
In March this year I celebrated three full years of working on fitness. I've lowered blood pressure, cholesterol, and sleep apnea enough to need no drugs.

The manager is a jerk. He called me an "a**hole" for leaving some wet pine needles on the ground. Poorly handled customer interaction.

I've been using Google products for many years now. I'm into Google up to my neck. But finding that Google is supporting some of the most regressive politicians and business organizations in the country is making me -- reluctantly -- review my relation with Google. As much as I'd hate to do it I'll find alternatives to Google if the company keeps supporting climate change deniers. It's just too important.
