Invasive Species  - 
 
Another invasive species near the Everglades. Hope they can get a handle on this one before it spreads. http://bit.ly/1fAGZ3a 
The New Guinea flatworm, one of the worst invasive species on Earth, has appeared for the first time in the U.S. — in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The worm uses a mouth protruding from its belly to suck soft tissues from snails.

This is sad news. Hopefully it can be turned around.

Everglades National Park  - 
 
This is a good blog to read if you want to learn more about the hydrology around the Everglades. It is for Big Cypress National Preserve, just to the west of Everglades National Park.  http://www.gohydrology.org/ 
Compare that to continental hydrologists who universally ring in the new water year each October. October is the northern standard because it coincides with the annual ebb of the water table. Fall approximates the inflection point when the steadily dropping summer water table bottoms out and ...

Video from PBS about Rising Sea Levels Threaten Florida's Everglades

We work with several of these researdchers on our projects. The evidence for sea level rise in the Everglades is overwhelming and increasing at an accelerated pace compared to 50 years ago.

I am so sad to hear this. They have got to let some fresh water in to wash it out. I am so disgusted with the priorities in Florida.

Story
Introduction
I am actively involved in church, Boy Scouts, and family history. I enjoy teaching people about their environment, how cultural biases influence our views of the world around us and how those views have changed over time. I also enjoy teaching and speaking on genealogy related topics. I am interested in trying out new tech toys, beta testing software and websites, and doing random research on many other topics. My current job is working on the restoration of the Everglades ecosystem.


Suggestions for Circles I would like to be involved in are Genealogy, LDS, Environment, Technology, Android Users, Scouting, as well as others.

Family names I am researching are Westerheide, Bielefeld, Wesner, Walker, Meyer, Mescher, Garman, Wise, Coker, Stueve, Bruns, Lexow, Reeder, LeBoeuf, Vickery and many others.
Bragging rights
I have a wonderful family who are involved in church and Scouting. My son earned his Eagle and Order of the Arrow at the age of 14.

Working with David Rome and Ted Busetto on our purchase of a Chevy Volt was a great experience. They gave us the time to test the vehicle and answered all our questions. We had been looking at several other cars and decided to try the internet sales department at George Moore instead of just getting the first sales person that saw us drive up. That was the right choice to make and resulted in less pressure from the sales people. David was prompt in responding to our internet request. One of your fellow dealers took about a week to respond to a request that was sent at the same time. We worked with Nate Bailey on the financing and payments. That took several days to finally get a correct contract. There were always numbers or math errors that could not be explained. We eventually got to a point where we agreed upon the contract. Even though we had problems with the contracts we enjoyed talking to Nate and he was always friendly.
