The only TV show I watched today was a March 16th episode of Jon Stewart. His humor and wit help me feel grounded. He takes on the issues that drive me nuts like in the 3/16/10 show. He did a bit on the whole fraudulent financial crisis. It was so funny. He confirms everything I've been feeling about how crazy and ridiculously unjust things really are.
I'm politically aligned with Stewart, so I'm sure I find his brand of humor funnier than the other wing in our country does. I'm still frustrated that the Wall Street crooks aren't behind bars, but it seems white collar corruption has a bipartisan stay out of jail free card in this country for the most part. I won't go into that right now though... I would rather blog about happy, simple, nature stuff!
The rest of my day has been spent working on this website with one outing to my favorite park. Below are my most recent pics.
It snowed nearly a foot the day after I saw this turtle last week. He was back at the same spot today sunning on the same rock. I look forward to getting to know him and seeing more of his buddies. I love his 'smile'!
Here's my brown goose featured in many of my photos. My favorite of him is the one entitled On Being Different. He is usually alone or set apart from the group. He seems to enjoy my attention. He floated back and forth for me to photograph and then came ashore.
Yesterday, the first day of spring, I saw two geese pulling up roots like these (in the pic) to eat. I've never seen them do that before. Now I know what all those holes in the mud are from! I love learning new things and especially new things about birds and animals.
I saw this cute little bird yesterday, but I didn't know what kind it was until a friend emailed with an ID. Thanks Ron! I sure love spring time!

I visited the Tiger Temple in Thailand & later found out it is under investigation for tiger trafficking and animal abuse. Read full story. In 2015 it was raided. More than 100 tigers and protected bird species in Wat Pa Luang Ta Bua, popularly known as the Tiger Temple in Kanchanaburi province were impounded by authorities following complaints that the temple was alleged to engage in illegal wildlife trading.

even a blade of grass, it becomes a mysterious,
awesome, indescribably magnificent world in itself."
