Monte Ne - that abandoned town on Beaver (or under it). All there was left was a boat launch and that ramshackle old chicken place. Heck, just checked. Still there.

Give it a try, but bring family and you'd better like bean soup to start!

I've seen a sign for that town a bunch of times and never knew quite how to pronounce it or what the heck it meant. now that you mention it I think your friend has told me about that place.

Looks as though they're just doing takeout right now but when in operation you can sit and eat chicken and sides to your heart's content. It's on a pretty spot on the lake.

Just took a phone shot of a rabbit in the back yard enjoying some clover. I figure a cruddy pic is better than no pic!

There's a guy that drives around this area in an old hearse with all sorts of Gothic stuff strapped it. I believe he's the same guy that sleeps in a coffin. I befriended a local restaurant manager who's busboy was part of that click and have heard some interesting stories.

This is "JOE", we acquired him at the age of a couple weeks & raised him. What a great pet he was & a goofball.

Copy of JOE & LAWNMOWER 011 - Copy.jpg

we named him "2 toe psycho Joe", note the 2 toes in the middle of his right foot.
He was always playing with us.

For the past few years my mom has been a surrogate mother to a goose name Lucy. A woman pays for her food and upkeep. I think Hammerhead has at least heard her... She is a Great burglar alarm.

Ever look up into the clouds and see everything from unicorns to spaceships? Well, Google showed one of its AI entities a picture of clouds and this is what it saw... Pretty damn ALIEN if you ask me. Course, this is the same AI program that had to be crash shutdown because the AI nodes had developed and were communicating in their own language which couldn't be deciphered by the programmers... That got going quick. Skynet anyone???

Hey Eric,

How slow did you make your shutter speed to get the fireflies?

Cool shot.

Thanks! I had my DSLR on a tripod and set to bulb exposure. Then used my remote shutter release to open the shutter for a little bit until one flew by the frame and then closed it back up. It was a quick break from what I was doing. I originally went outside to try to capture images of sprites over a distant thunderstorm but at least a quick review of my frames I don't think I captured any sprites that night.

Have a source for that? I find it kind of interesting if true.

DO YOU KNOW THIS PLANT?

I was mowing the grass and weeds and suddenly smelled a notable smell. It was like some kind of herb. I had my respirator on, and this was pretty much the only time I smelled anything. I later cut off a piece and brought it inside. When I broke a piece, it had a smell that was maybe spicy and minty. I tasted a piece and it was quite strong, both minty and bitter. I took the bitter as a warning and spat it out.

Any idea what this is? I only found a few plants (after mowing through the middle of them) in a sea of grass and thistle. If it is something good, I will leave them be and mow around them.

Know any botanists or wild food experts?
