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!

I went out this morning to see what bird life might be around early in the day. Two different birds - a kingfisher and a black-crowned night heron - were visiting along with the usual mallards, Canada geese, and green herons. The morning felt and smelled like an early morning at Pennsic.

Just a reminder about the upcoming online course (June 20) on A History of Royal Food and Feasting, jointly provided by Reading University and Historic Royal Palaces:(https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/royal-food/1)
Currently at least 75 SCAdians have signed up for the course and will learn about Henry VIII at Hampton Court, Elizabeth I at the Tower of London, George I at Hampton Court, George III at Kew Palace. and Victoria at Kensington Palace. The course is 5 weeks long and takes about 3 hours per week. You'll be invited to try making some of the recipes from these various eras. If you haven't signed up, consider doing so, but in any case, please pass the word along to your friends as well as your kingdom's social media. There are no tests!
Chart the history of royal food in the splendour of royal palaces.

Greetings! You make #132 registered SCAdians that I know of. There are
almost a dozen more who say they are "re-enactors" or use other terms to
indicate activity with a historical group, but who don't specifically
say "SCA".

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.

Didn't know that I could get a "walk-in" for an oil change. Very handy!
