Full Moon Tonight

Animations - car 2

Got a couple hours before it gets dark so I thought I would drop a blog. LOL Get it? Drop a blog? Where's the shovel?

It has been quite windy last couple days but it seems to be subsiding a bit. If it's too windy it will make for a bad trip. I opened my door to go outside and the raven was in front of my house just floating in the wind. When it's windy they can almost float motionless. He started moving when he saw me so I spoke to him. "Are you hungry?" He turned his head and looked at me when I spoke so I said to him, "Here's some food the foxes didn't eat, do you want it?". With that I stooped over and picked up a plate with Thanksgiving scraps I had put out for the foxes. The foxes have not been around since Thursday thanks to the "Weekend Warriors". I'm trying to keep an even keel for tonight's photo session so I won't even get into my dislike of the weekenders. Suffice it to say that they have no respect for nature, or other people's property. And if they keep up their cheap shit sooner or later I might run out of patience. So, anyway, the raven saw me pick up the plate so he circled around in front of me and landed about 15 yards away. I walked out away from the house towards him and threw the food on the ground. I went back inside and looked out a few minutes later to see him hurriedly gobbling down his windfall. The pieces that were small enough for him to eat anyway.

I drove over to the oasis today and looked around. It's been a long time since I've seen it. There's a small pond there completely surrounded by large palm trees. and a line of palm trees where the Native Americans used to let the water drain. The line goes in the direction of the buriel ground. It's all on private property with an inn and restaurant there. I think the best way for me to have access for photography there at night is to rent a bungalow for a day and night. I think I'll do that. I just haven't decided when.

Tonight I would like to go back to the cemetery and take photos. Also I'm going to take pics of the oasis from outside the barbwire fence. It shouldn't take me too long. I'll bring the laptop so I can view the pics full size right after I take them. I'm looking forward to photographing the oasis at night but I'll have to wait until I set up a date and rent a hut to do it right. I don't think the owners would feel comfortable with some stranger walking through their property, taking pictures, in the middle of the night. It would probably end up ugly with the sheriff involved and tresspassing charges.....It just wouldn't be a comfortable scene. There's no way to hide the flash.

So it's after four now, guess I'll leave about nine or ten. If it's windy though I don't think I'll bother. Better fire up some dark roast and get a caffiene fix. In the meantime anyone reading this....Take care and have a wonderful day.

Changeable and mutable as the wind, the Owl is a tough one to pin down. Warm, natural, with an easy-going nature, the Owl is friend to the world.The bearer of this Native American animal symbol is notorious for engaging in life at full speed, and whole-hearted loves adventure. This can be to his/her detriment as the Owl can be reckless, careless, and thoughtless. Owls make great artists, teachers, and conservationists. However, due to his/her adaptability and versatility – the Owl would likely excel in any occupation.

In a supportive, nurturing environment the Owl is sensitive, enthusiastic, and an attentive listener. Left to his/her own devices, the Owl can be excessive, overindulgent, bitter, and belligerent.

Dogs are honest,straightforward,and friendly. They are extremely protective of themselves and their loved ones. With a passion for fair play and justice, they never fail to rescue you time after time. They may rant and rave, but they never rest until they right the wrong. They are true humanitarians and suffer with the world.In spite of their concern for others,social graces and fancy parties do not impress them. Having sharp eyes, they will see through people's motives. They are quite private about their personal lives and someone prying into their affairs make them secretive and withdrawn. Once you gain their confidence, they open up freely.

Once Dogs classify you, they rarely change their minds. There are few in-betweens. Dogs perceive things either in black or white. You are either friend or enemy. Luckily, they are good judges of character and have superb insight into human nature. Dogs are tolerant of their friends. Before they approve of you, the friendship must develop slowly with a variety of meetings and conversations. If they look you over and decide they can trust you, you remain in their hearts forever. If you need them, Dogs will be there.

When the time is right, Dogs work long and hard, but they know how to relax, and enjoy their home and loved ones. The Dogs have playful moods and a great sense of humor. They have quick emotions and if you offend them, they will snarl and insult you with expertise. They forgive with the same speed. Dogs are intelligent and well-balanced. With their stable minds, they make good counselors or psychologists. They endure during any crisis situation. They are trustworthy people and know how to keep a secret. Being efficient and very diplomatic, they can hide their prejudices well. Most Dogs have a comfortable home and do well.Dogs always defend what is theirs and have a high sense of value. Home and family come first,and Dogs will work to see that they have the best!

The begining of great famine?


It's been estimated that at the current rate of decline there will be no bees left in America by 2030. 

                                                               In the winter of 2006, a strange phenomenon fell upon honeybee hives across the country. Without a trace, millions of bees vanished from their hives. A precious pollinator of fruits and vegetables, the disappearing bees left billions of dollars of crops at risk and threatened our food supply. The epidemic set researchers scrambling to discover why honeybees were dying in record numbers -- and to stop the epidemic in its tracks before it spread further.

Without bees we will loose 70% of our food supply.
The epidemic is almost worldwide.

The perilous existence of a migratory beekeeper amid a great bee die-off

By the time John Miller realized just how many of his bees were dying, the almonds were in bloom and there was nothing to be done. It was February 2005, and the hives should have been singing with activity, plump brown honeybees working doggedly to carry pollen from blossom to blossom. Instead they were wandering in drunken circles at the base of the hive doors, wingless, desiccated, sluggish, blasé. Miller is accustomed to death on a large scale. “The insect kingdom enjoys little cell repair,” he will often remind you. Even when things are going well, a hive can lose 1,000 bees a day. But the extent of his losses that winter defied even his insect-borne realism. In a matter of weeks, Mille lost almost half of his 13,000 hives — around 300 million bees.

From the lost book of Enoch.  This was written right before the great flood.  Were 
the Holy Watchers of Heaven what we call aliens?  They must have had some kind 
of physical form to breed with humans.  And what about the Spirits of the Giants?  Everything on Earth has its origin somewhere

 And He answered and said to me, and I heard His voice: 'Fear not, Enoch, thou righteous  man and scribe of righteousness: approach hither and hear my voice. And go, say to the Watchers of heaven, who have sent thee to intercede for them: "You should intercede" for men, and not men  for you: Wherefore have ye left the high, holy, and eternal heaven, and lain with women, and defiled yourselves with the daughters of men and taken to yourselves wives, and done like the children  of  earth, and begotten giants (as your) sons? And though ye were holy, spiritual,   living the eternal life, you have defiled yourselves with the blood of women, and have begotten (children) with the blood of flesh, and, as the children of men, have lusted after flesh and blood as those also do who die  and perish. Therefore have I given them wives also that they might impregnate them, and beget  children by them, that thus nothing might be wanting to them on earth. But you were formerly  spiritual, living the eternal life, and immortal for all generations of the world. And therefore I have not appointed wives for you; for as for the spiritual ones of the heaven, in heaven is their dwelling.  And now, the giants, who are produced from the spirits and flesh, shall be called evil spirits upon  the earth, and on the earth shall be their dwelling. Evil spirits have proceeded from their bodies; because they are born from men and from the holy Watchers is their beginning and primal origin;  they shall be evil spirits on earth, and evil spirits shall they be called. [As for the spirits of heaven, in heaven shall be their dwelling, but as for the spirits of the earth which were born upon the earth, on the earth shall be their dwelling.]  And the spirits of the giants afflict, oppress, destroy, attack, do battle, and work destruction on the earth, and cause trouble: they take no food, but nevertheless  hunger and thirst, and cause offences. And these spirits shall rise up against the children of men and against the women, because they have proceeded from them.
