America Lost

I heard about the recent business flight on 9/11 where American fliers were arrested, cavity searched, stripped, the works all because of fear. Here is the truth from one of the flight victims:
Take the time to read what happened and understand this is not the America we all grew up in. This is wrong and our rights are being trampled all over. So thank you apathetic fearful Americans, thank you to our government, thank you to heartless greedy corporations, thank you to all the willing people who participate in hurting our citizens in the name of fear. You are making history repeat itself. It was called WW2, the citizens of Germany also lived in fear while in Nazi occupation.
Apathy and fear lead to the deaths of millions of good people right inside its nation.
And now we are doomed to repeat history because America lives in fear.
I wonder if the Patriot Act will make mandatory mini-x-ray machines for babies at the bus depots soon? I bet they will be so cute with balloons and rainbows painted on them. I wonder if our kids feet will get cold when they remove their shoes and get stripped searched at the airports? No matter, if they complain they will be shot behind the food court. Ah, the future of America is so bright, I have to throw up, thanks.

Big Black Beetle

I happened to find this huge black beetle pondering across my neighbors basement floor. She almost weighed as much as a full spool of quilting thread and was the size of the palm of my hand. She is a black rain beetle and is a rare find indeed. They take 13 years to mature and both sexes emerge just before rain and fall to mate then burrow underground again. The female does not fly only the male, so that was why she was walking in the basement. She was the neatest bug I have found yet. I set her outside to find a mate in the woods.

Hoofing It

The other day a friend came by to give a hoof trimming lesson to my neighbor. She raises champion goats and offered to show us how to trim goat hooves. The auction goats had neglected feet and needed serious trimming. They must have been confined for a long time to get at this level of neglect. So after a goat holder was made the trimming lesson began.
The auction goats poor feet. They caused her to walk poorly and not be able to forage since walking hurts.
The hoof wall has folded under the hoof. Careful trimming with very sharp trimmers.
My husband on the left, Cathy and Rick on the right. Goat audience around the show.
Left hoof is after and the right hoof is before.
The goat thinks about all this.
Serious fold over on the second older female goat. After the trimming both goats walked better.

Puffy Adder

This is what was lying across my driveway last week. It was a spreading adder or spread head as is locally called. It is a non venomous snake that eats toads and frogs.
I liked its markings
I got the whole hiss song and dance from this snake. It did not want to move off the driveway.
Such a cute tail all curled up.
