The Lone Girl in a Crowd

Although fairy tales often reflect the human condition, these were more or less meant to teach lessons in life. For instance, Beauty and the Beast and its many variants is supposed to help women adjust to arranged marriages. Little Red Riding Hood is meant to teach children about stranger danger, though you probably knew that. […]

Check out these customers’ reviews… Used this jacket for 6 months during my 2017 AT thru hike. During cold weather, it got used just about every day. It was surprisingly warm and insulated quite well even when it was wet. I wore my rain coat over it several times to block the wind. I used the jacket in 10 degree temps in the Smokey’s and I stayed warm. I abused the jacket about every way possible and it’s still in good shape. It got drug over rocks, thru trees and brush. It got rained on and it didn’t always get washed per the instructions. There’s not any rips or tears and while it doesn’t look like a new jacket any more, I can’t justify replacing it either. The jacket is perfect for 25-50 degree weather and can go colder if layered properly. While very thin and almost weightless, the jacket seems to have the ability to adapt to the temperature around you and make you forget you are wearing it. Perfect for wearing under waders in cool to cold climates. While in Alaska, I noticed that 75%+ of the fishing guides have one (the hoodie version for fast boating). Liked it so much that I bought the vest too. Both compress down to almost nothing for easy packing. I bought this jacket for my husband a few months ago, and he absolutely loves it! It’s warm enough that he can wear it over a sweatshirt or heavy flannel shirt if it’s not too ungodly cold outside. When it is really cold (we’ve been blessed with -40F wind chills the past couple of weeks), he layers it under a heavier winter coat. For reference, he wears a size large and he’s about 5’11” and 200 lbs.

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-bghsf-b1fe48 It was toward spring, and the fishing began. Jurgen helped, for he had grown during the last year; he was quick and alert at his work, and there was no lack of spirit in him. He could swim and tread water, turn over and tumble in the the water.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — The family of an angler whose catfish held a South Dakota record for nearly 70 years is upset that state wildlife officials voided the record. Roy Groves caught the 55-pound (24.9-kilogram) fish in 1949. The fish originally was identified as a channel catfish, but South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks voided […]

We’ve enjoyed our extended time in Ipswich, and discovered several beautifully […]

Photos of the Day Today was interesting. As I was going kayak-fly rod fishing, I saw several turkeys feeding in a field and snapped a couple of photos. When I arrived at the lake, I heard water splashing where a small stream entered the lake. I got my cameral out of the dry bag and […]

Immerse yourself in the remote coral reef in the north of Western Australia during the worst bleaching event in the world in 2016, the first thing I noticed was the heat. It was like diving into a hot bath, with surface temperatures of 34 ° C. Then I noticed the expanse of bleached colonies. Their […]

Generic Gaming Goodness

This past weekend I attended the CanGames gaming convention in Ottawa, as I do each year. I enjoyed it a great deal (as I always do), although overall attendance seemed to be down a bit. I also have fewer pictures than usual, largely due to forgetfulness. On Saturday I did put on two zombie apocalypse games […]
