We departed Augusta after breakfast, deciding not to swim. We had a lot of rain in the night and it passed through leaving clear skies, but a cold on- shore southeasterly, so swimming definitely not as attractive as yesterday. However, our fire still had embers glowing – the remains of the dragon! We went through […]

Papago Park is a nearly 1500 acre desert park situated in both Phoenix and Tempe, Arizona. It is a great place to hold reunions, birthday parties, and other events. There are picnic areas and lots of hiking trails and bike paths across the park.

There are cool red-ish rock formations and buttes at one end of the acreage. The Hole-in-the-Rock, is one such formation and has become a major landmark. It formed due to water sliding down the rock face and washing out a boulder. Then over the years rain and wind have eroded away the hole into what it is today. People climb up to it and find some great photo opportunities, especially with our beautify Phoenix sunsets.

Papago is home to both Phoenix Zoo and the Desert Botanical Gardens. Two fun and beautiful places indeed! Contact me if you want a photo session there.

It was a lovely party that flew by, full of visits, reminisces, laughter and camaraderie.  I usually don’t tell jokes at parties and run away sometimes if someone starts to, but it was just Bea; Tiffany; Dr. Drouin from France and myself.  It’s a joke from Joel Osteen and goes this way… A robber broke […]

You’d think animals as smart as cats and parrots would have no trouble figuring out that their reflection in the mirror is only a reflection–but I guess if there’s no one else around who wants to play, your reflection is the next best thing. These and other video clips display a common approach to getting […]

New Zealand’s birdlife is unique. With no native mammals for competition and very few (if any) native predators, New Zealand’s birds have evolved to fill ecological niches that would normally be occupied by non-avian taxa. As a result, characteristics that are rare in birds throughout the world are relatively common in New Zealand, such as […]

If we don’t beat the establishment before the next downturn, we’re going to see the same bailouts and money printing we’ve seen before but on a deliriously insane level. This is not me being a permabear. In fact, when the stock market didn’t plunge in the early summer as I predicted it would, I honored […]

A PARROT has fallen in love with his owner’s Amazon Alexa — but keeps using it to order shopping. So far he has demanded treats such as strawberries, watermelon, raisins, broccoli and ice cream. The love affair blossomed after the parrot realised he could order treats from Alexa He has also bagged a kite, light bulbs and even a kettle. Rocco the African Grey likes to dance too and tells the voice-activated device to play favourite tunes. Sometimes they are slow numbers, but he generally prefers rock. Marion Wischnewski, of the Berkshire-based National Animal Welfare Trust, said: “Often I come home from being out all day and find romantic music playing. Marion will come home from work and find Rocco dancing to Kings of Leon “And he loves a boogie with Alexa. But it has to be something fast, like his favourite Kings of Leon. “Rocco and Alexa chat away to each other all day. Then I have to check the shopping list and cancel all the items he’s ordered.” Marion, 49, took rescue bird home to Didcot, Oxon, because his owner taught him swear words and staff at the centre did not want him effing and blinding on public display. African Greys are famed for their intelligence and mimicking skills. NAWT rescue and rehoming charity relies totally on generous public donations to keep animals like Rocco happy and healthy.
