Silent Windchime

On days like today, when the wind is just right, I could watch this for hours.


Fly Casting Beauty

This is an example of the beauty and artistry that comes from a well cast fly line. Nicely done.

Unseen Consequences

From one of my favorite blogs. Moldy Chum:

We've all heard about the giant islands of floating trash in both the Atlantic and Pacific. These photographs of albatross chicks were made in September 2009 on Midway Atoll, a tiny stretch of sand and coral near the middle of the North Pacific. The nesting babies are fed bellies-full of plastic by their parents, who soar out over the vast polluted ocean collecting what looks to them like food to bring back to their young. On this diet of human trash, every year tens of thousands of albatross chicks die on Midway from starvation, toxicity, and choking.

There is a reason the Marine Pollution Control Act specifically forbids the disposal of plastic ANYWHERE in the ocean. It never goes away. Yes, as you can see by the pictures it breaks up into smaller and smaller pieces. In fine plankton nets dragged several miles by ocean research vessels, plastic is becoming the prevalent content in these nets, not plankton. Next time you go out on the water, remember to bring a container so you can bring your trash home with you. In fact, plastic is no longer trash, it is for your recycle bin. I am elated that in my community we no longer set limits on what type or "number" the plastic must be to get recycled. All types are accepted. They even allow wax milk cartons. Please remember to think when you are out on the water. No one wants to have an albatross around their neck.

Japan and Peru Videos

Greetings folks. Let's travel south and east today. I've now got this YouTube thing down pretty good. I'm also placing them on their own movie pages. Clever, I know. So Clever that I can even place them on this here blog page too. Please enjoy them with a little egg nog and christmas cookies.


Amsterdam Video

Here is another travelog from a brief trip I took to Amsterdam in 2004 on business. There was a quick trip to Milan in the middle. I recently figured out I did not take a single picture while in Italy. Hopefully the set in Amsterdam made up for it. You can also find it in the Movie Album.
