Another Rainy Day
AM trip to work... Highway 20 between Corvallis and Albany.
A bit of trivia, Highway 20 is the longest Highway in the United States.
Sometimes it seems to be the longest drive to and from work.

Nails in the Fence
It's not always anger, it is our actions in general. There are no "fresh starts" in life. There is no new beginning. Forgiveness comes easy for many people but the scars of the past, they never go away. Watch what you do today, because sometimes the price isn't worth the reward.

Nails in the Fence
~Author Unknown

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there."

The little boy then understood how powerful his words were. He looked up at his father and said "I hope you can forgive me father for the holes I put in you."

"Of course I can," said the father.

I especially like that truth and honest are both listed.

Without Respect there can be no/know Love.

Humility teaches that it is Wisdom to allow Others their Opinions.

To share One's thoughts with Honesty takes Courage.

Love is Simple. Love Respects Free Will.
Love leads to Peace.

Arguing about Spiritual/religious Thoughts, which are only between an Individual and His/Her God is not living Love.

One could potentially destroy Another's Hope.

We are All Related in Oneness. Peace & Love from Me!.


Most beautiful words of Wisdom Paula!

The Skimmity Hitchers at the 2 Towns Tap Room
My baby and I had a night out last night!
Went to our favorite Ciderhouse in Corvallis for some "Damn Fine Cider" and listen to the Skimmity Hitchers. Had a GREAT time, met some new friends and made a few captures of the evening.
+Katey Bosworth might be interested in a few of these ;o)

Balance in everything we do grasshopper...
A very wise man taught me this a long time ago. The conversation all started when I asked him some questions about cooking... he was an exceptional cook!

Fear, Greed and Ignorance
Any one, or combination of the three have been key factors to humanities undoing.
When you understand who we are as human beings you will see that throughout all history these are the three conditions that undermine humanity.

~If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at... change! ~
YES, I am the same human as Paul Deatherage, just making some minor changes for my retirement years. I will be using my first and middle name from here on out.

I work as a Energy Conservation Educator and provide my clients with Home Energy Audits.  Have you ever had a Door Blower test, or an infrared scan  done on your home? ...I do this for my living.

In my spare time I help run a dog rescue program called Pet Adoption Network with my wife... I love animals, and dogs in particular.  In my other spare time I help take care of 6 dogs, 3 cats, 2 llamas, 4 alpaca and 2 horses.  

I also play drums in a band called the Zen Dawgz!  LOVE music and I have a VERY diverse music collection including classical, jazz, rock, pop, country, zydeco, folk, new-wave, world, with just about everything in-between... no opera or rap though ;o)

I love art, and especially photography.  I carry a camera with me where ever I go, I'll shoot anything and everything that catches my eye.  I also love the post processing part of photography, learning more every day.

I'm a very curious creature!

If you want me to circle you, there needs to be a little effort by YOU to provide me with some information about yourself and your interests on your "About" page... pretty simple really.

Bragging rights
Becoming a competent man. Have helped find homes for hundreds of dogs. I'm a very good cook.

Philomath, OR
Corvallis, OR - too many to list
Wonderful location and well maintained campground. My wife and I spent a week there in September of 2014 and had a great time. Located near many other places of interest, such as Thor's Well, Devils Churn and Cape Perpetua Lookout. The camp hosts were very friendly and accommodating. We plan on going there again soon! It would appear that those who only gave 1 or 2 stars did not check out the specifics about the campground, so personally I would not give them any merit. If you're traveling and planning on staying somewhere, check out the hours/days/months that they are open and what the accommodations are.

I've been there twice and both times the food was excellent and the service superb. My first try was for lunch with a co-worker. Had the salmon BLT and it was bar-none the BEST BLT I've ever had in my life! Seriously, I will have this as my bench-mark for the rest of my life. My second visit was for dinner with my youngest daughter. I had the grilled tuna with grilled vegetables ~ Oh mercy me! The tuna was cooked to perfection! My daughter doesn't like to try new foods (she had the fish-n-chips) and I talked he into taking a bite... "the best tuna she has ever had!" Prices are reasonable considering the food is fresh and well prepared, plus the service is very great! It can get a little crazy during the tourist season, so if you go there when the people are are everywhere, be prepared to wait.
