I went down to the Cleveland Metroparks this morning to get help identifying some birds. The little pond was very still. Here are two of the reflection photos I took. The one is a Canada goose gander. His mate is nearby on an island nest. There are multiple reflections here. The other is a turtle sunning itself. If you click on the photo, you will be able to see the underside of the turtle's neck quite clearly.

For Tudor Cook who dislikes early Christmas in stores, how about this in the US? Walmart has Valentine candy available now before Christmas.

Photos don't seem to show the glory of the late afternoon sun, but here are two from October 26. One is of a bird (probably a robin), gilded by the setting sun. The other is the back yard of our row of attached homes.

Had a left hip replacement surgery on Monday.  Slight glitch with first operation since a piece of plastic was missed and hip became dislocated in recovery. Back into surgery and success. Full range of motion. Went home Wednesday afternoon and today (Thursday afternoon) I astonished the physical therapist who came by how well I was doing. I can walk - with a walker - and get in and out of a recliner. I'm still taking frequent naps due to pain medications and the general stress of surgery on the body. However, for the first time I feel joyous! I can move without pain and therapists are happy!

A year ago today, 25 May 2014, Terry Love kindly escorted me thru Kew Gardens and the palace where Georgian cookery was taking place. This year, neither of us is very mobile. Here's remembering what we saw, Terry!

For foodie fans: Take a look at the cubes of food and see if you can identify all of them! http://www.boredpanda.com/raw-food-cubes-lernert-sander-volkskrant/
Dutch artists Lernert and Sander cut raw food into 98 perfect 2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5 cm cubes, creating a tantalizing geometric display. This viral photo was commissioned by Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant for their their food-themed documentary photography special.

For Jeff Berry: No such hazards in Yorkshire, are there?! How about sheep?
An ostrich chases cyclists on a road in South Africa.

Sheep don't so much chase as sit on the road looking faintly confused.

Here's a university president's blog that puts into words what has bothered me recently. He expresses my frustration with what has been happening on campuses and with "crowd rule" in mass demonstrations here in the US. Read...and think.  http://www.okwu.edu/blog/2015/11/this-is-not-a-day-care-its-a-university/
In this Talking Points, Dr. Piper says OKWU is a place to learn: to learn that life isn't about you, but about others.

There will always be problematic whiners using any form of dialog  to their own advantage, of course, and the student Dr. Piper depicts would be one of them (assuming Dr. Piper understood his complaint correctly...) But a great many of the things prompting demonstrations on campuses nowadays appear to be actually lack of human courtesy. 
Hopefully this is a continuing discussion

Vultures (buzzards) are frequent visitors to the woods where I live, but not bald eagles. I've never seen one here until today. The camera was zoomed as far as it could go, and this is enlarged from the photo that I got.

A year ago today I attended the Drachenwald Coronation held at Bolton Castle in Yorkshire. Mary Queen of Scots was imprisoned her for about 9 months. Here are a few of the photos as I remember that event.

And we drove across part of what would become, a few months later, the Tour de France route.   Lovely site, nice event.

One year ago today I was in York, meeting with Jeff Berry at the York Cocoa House. (Wonderful chocolate products, if you ever visit York. I never realized that one could overdose on chocolate and have such physical reactions for more than a day!)

Jens Voigt is in California this week as one of the Tour of California race commentators. Nice to see him here!
