The Bees' Knees

No wait, that was my knees! Right after falling off that merry-go-round in Caliente, I spotted a patch of blooming clover. Oh my, I hadn't seen blooming clover in ... can't remember when!!

Covered in mud already, I figure what the heck, can't hurt to get on the soggy ground to photograph them, right? Yeehaw, they're swarming with bees! My lucky day!!

(There is still more to this story...)

Within hours of this announcement, a $17 billion corporation stopped providing service to its customers nationwide and has yet to bring it back online. Come on +Cox Communications​, what gives?

I want +Google Fiber​ in #LasVegas! Posted via 4G on G+ Android app.

I'm finally back up for about 3 hours straight. That's the worst I've personally seen since Hurricane Isabel.

Also, I want to shout out to +Alex Bellanger to let him know this is Part 2 of my Caliente story. This is after I fell in the mud - you can see it on my right calf.

I searched for a merry-go-round for nearly 3 years to do this shot. I was so excited when I saw this that I completely forgot my main reason for being there: to shoot a small town for the Nevada Magazine Great Photo Hunt. I only got one shot for that, because after this, I found other distractions.

There was a trench around the merry-go-round (roundabout for my European friends), filled with water and mud, making it a bit of a challenge to make the silly thing spin for the 10-second timer. I was laughing and having fun though. I stepped in the water more than once, making my sandals slippery. Hence the fall.

The messy hair is from having my windows down for part of the drive there. Oh well... Deal with it!

That squat challenge is gonna have to wait. I'd rather be doing squats, frankly. It's just a sprain.

Definitely, Linda. I don't want lingering effects. My heel hurt for over a year in spite of doing everything I was supposed to do. I suspect that's because it took nearly a month to see an orthopedist. Not taking chances with my feet/ankles. I depend on them. :)

I'm back... with a new version of the #bokelicious  DiSaronno. It took more tries than I anticipated. LOL I also added a teensy bit of Kahlua because I thought the color was better.

My son just dared me. He knows I can't turn down a dare. This is gonna hurt!! I'm taking +Derek Kind's challenge. PLEASE Plus and share the original post, my friends feel free to join me in this challenge if you think you can hang with the old lady! ;-)
 
And now for something completely different

Okay, guys, this is your chance to make me feel pain! I promise that I will do 5 squats for every +1 on this post. And while I'll have to break them up into sets of 25, I will do them all in one day, if I can (depending on the number of pluses - physical limitations apply).

Plus one to exercise vicariously through me! Better yet, share this with your own followers and take the challenge yourself. :-)

Wow, just wow! You have to read the whole article to get the full impact.

Instagram's banned searching for #curvy http://dailym.ai/1Djkp4z
The social media platform claims that pictures tagged with the word 'curvy' often violate its nudity policies - but risqué searches like #nipplepiercing and #noclotheson are still allowed.

"HOT"

Caliente is much cooler than Las Vegas at 4395' elevation, about 2000' higher than Vegas. So, why "hot" - which in Spanish is caliente? It's named for the hot springs found in nearby springs and was originally Calientes.

Ohhh, the stories!! Just a day there and back, but it was a long day ... and quite eventful!

The best-laid plans ... more to follow.

Introduction

Out of suffering have emerged the strongest souls; the most massive characters are seared with scars. 

~Kahlil Gibran

MEET PAM

My passion is life, and I express that through my photography and occasionally through writing. And I happen to be very passionate ... about FAMILY (first and foremost!), life, friends, people in general. 

I'm a photographer who loves to write. I'm waiting for one or the other of those to become a profitable venture! I've been a bit lackadaisical about both, but I'm currently working on upping my game. I'm in the process of starting a boudoir business. Stay tuned for details.

Photography has been a passion of mine since childhood. Photographically, I have run the gamut from hobbyist to professional portrait and wedding photography to landscape/travel photographer. I’ll shoot (practically) anybody/anything anytime anywhere and have fun doing it! I have very few fears, so I have been known to take foolish risks to “get the shot.” I’ve threatened wild animals, climbed on all sorts of things, had rocks thrown at me from atop a mountain – all unscathed. I finally met my limit in July 2013 when I jumped off the wall surrounding the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas, landing wrong and breaking my calcaneus. (Did I mention I was barefoot?)

If you like what you see, circle me! I'd be honored. If not, I'm glad you passed through and have a great G+ experience! If you love what you see, please comment and/or share. If I see you commenting, I'll visit your page! After all, that's what this social network is all about - networking and getting to know other people. I've met quite a few people face-to-face from the interactions online. You just never know.

Theme Page:

I started the Leading Lines Monday page, which kept me very busy on Mondays for about three years. I loved curating it, and I loved the theme. My co-curators - Andreas LeviDavid Murphy, Michael B. Stuart and Simos Xenakis - and I decided to end the theme in October 2014. It was bittersweet, but it was time to move on.

Photographic Things I Recommend:

Topaz Labs Software - use coupon code Boling15 for 15% off any purchase

Vü Filters - Available from Adorama or B&H

Camtasia - Best screen casting software for Windows!

Short List:
Very short list of people I most admire:
Helen Keller
Ludwig von Beethoven
John Nash
Nathaniel Ayers
There are many, many others, but these come readily to mind.
Bragging rights
I'm here, against the odds.

Old School is the BEST brewpub I (we) have found in Las Vegas, bar none. The food is fabulous, a great selection of in-house beer and their prices, no comparison! $4 for a 12-oz, $6 for 22 oz. Seriously?!! I thought there was a digit missing on the 22-oz. price. No. Aside from that, the owners (one pictured) are great people. I had fish 'n tots. I've never seen a restaurant use salmon for fish 'n (chips) tots. OMG, amazing!! They make fresh chips (not fries, potato chips) in house. Hot, fresh potato chips ... I don't even like potato chips, but I could have eaten an entire basket by myself. They have a great vegetarian selection too.

Had appetizers and beer at Mundo's. Prior to being invited by a friend, I didn't even know it was there! Stone IPA, never tried it before - a little hoppy for my taste, but good. I shared appetizers with friends. Everything was fantastic! Chicken quesadillas, crispy calamari, guacamole - OMG, the guacamole and salsa were the best I've had in a long time!! Spicy and delicious! The ambiance at the bar was rather fun too. People mingled, talked with each other at the bar. A different atmosphere than at the Strip. Overall, a great Friday night!

I had a fantastic time Cabo Wabo! Our waiter was friendly and engaging. I had the shrimp tacos, which were very good. My cocktail was quite strong (Adios - commonly known as AMF), rather unusual for establishments on the Strip. Prices are typical for Las Vegas. Service was great! It was a Tuesday evening, not busy. My friend and I had a lot of fun! The waiter even took photos of us.

Oasis RV park has great rates if you reserve by the month (or even okay by the week). For a metropolitan area, the park is quite nice. Most spaces are pull-through, which makes it much easier to park. They are also spacious enough. The clubhouse is very nice. They have dining and a store/gift shop, very nice restrooms. Facilities and showers are also nice and spacious. My only complaint is the laundry room. The machines are adequate (only adequate), but the light is on a very short timer so if you are doing laundry past dark, it can be quite annoying. It will click off after about a minute, maybe less. It doesn't allow time to transfer laundry from the washer to the dryer. There is a sensor, so you only need wave a hand or walk towards it, but it is still a nuisance.

Best customer service I have ever experienced - anywhere! I got coffee beans from their bulk bins. I've been grinding my own coffee for decades. When grinding my coffee one morning, the grinder seized up and started making an awful noise. I stopped it as quickly as I could, emptied the hopper and found there was a rock lodged in the burrs. It was about the same size and color as a coffee bean, so it's completely understandable how the machines didn't "sort" it out of the beans. However, my grinder was ruined. I cleaned it, but it no longer worked. I went to the store, took photos of the lodged rock, took the actual rock, talked to the store director. She reported it to their insurance company and, on the same day that I talked to her, she called me back to tell me that the store would replace my grinder. She also gave me enough ground coffee to get me through until I could replace the grinder. Frankly, I wasn't sure if they would do anything about the grinder when I first went to the store. I am pleasantly surprised. Smith's now has a very loyal customer! Thank you! This is how companies should treat their customers!

I was simply thrilled than when I heard Hobby Lobby was coming to Las Vegas! Their selection and prices are so much better than their competition! They literally have everything a person could want for crafting. Plus, they have happy employees because they treat them well, so customer service is always above and beyond! Their fabric selection isn't as extensive as you would find at a fabric-only store, but neither is the wait time at the cutting table. The payoff in time savings is well worth the sacrifice unless there is something very specific I want. For other crafts, you will not find a better selection anywhere! Holidays are busy though, so arrive near opening time if possible, and avoid Saturdays.

Dr. Dunay is, hands down, the best! My son required braces early because of a narrow palate. Dr. Dunay doesn't subscribe to putting braces on practically every child at an early age, as so many orthodontists do nowadays. However, because my son needed to have his palate expanded, this can only be done early without surgical intervention. It meant he had to wear his braces a little longer, but it was one price regardless. Dr. Dunay and her staff are very professional, very accommodating and, best of all, just a fun place! It was a great experience! I highly recommend her!
