Another gift from Angelica. It just takes my breath away to realize the great diversity that comes about by natural selection. No need for the god hypothesis.   Continue

Wow, interesting news about Storm petrels, Dallas. Thanks. What an example of the value of parks.

Thanks for the bird pictures, guys. Especially the feeding birds, Tony. Seeing them together is, as Joan says, soothing and relaxing. You can imagine yourself sitting watching them.

My mom says that I was imitating the dog before I learned to talk.  I have always had many animals and I started to collect more when I was forced into retirement.  The problem is that most of my income goes into taking care of them.  You learn how to feed high quality but to pay lower prices.  You learn how to make and re[pair things yourself.  The dogs do not care if their toys are cartoon characters or $1 plush toys from the dollar store.  I like the cartoon characters. I also feed raw to my dogs and cats.  I have a volunteer who collects veggies that are being discarded from the flea market and brings them once or twice a week.  That helps stretch the feed and goes to the chickens, other poultry and the tortoises.  The rabbits, guinea pigs and prairie dogs have pellets and grain, but every night I collect a wheel barrel full of wild grasses for them.  My goats have pellets and hay, but I collect Brazilian pepper limbs for them every evening.  And of course, I live in an unincorporated area, on an acre and one half.  So my neighbors nor the county have anything to say, and my neighbors like the animals anyway.  This was my dream and I'm living it.  Sure I would like more income so that I wouldn't have to  worry about the bills, but like many people, I'm doing my best.

Beautiful dogs and cats Dominic - thanks so very much for sharing.

Those terrible looking eyes are just the camera and do not actually look like that, as seen in one particular picture.  In the others, Concetta is squinting in the sun.

This is me and one of my six dogs, Pearl.  I adopted her within this year, along with a pug.beagle mix, from a different home.  Sometimes fosters just stay here.

Oh yes, Dominic, I know the feeling of working in the earth with all it contains, wiping my dirty hands on my jeans and grabbing a bite here and there. The garden does have hazards, and a wise gardener knows that. My doctor makes sure I have a tetanus shot on a regular basis.

With your natural setting, do very many children visit it and you? A garden is a good way to attract in the curious and questioning. You have a greater risk doing that with all the crimes against children; however, parents and children make it even a more valuable place to show people how nature thrives and works.

Oh! I wish I could take a meander through your place and have a good visit.  Well, you share so generously with us, I feel like I know where to go to see the fowl. 

I like your new avatar! Is he/she a part of your family?
