Sending Best Wishes to All...

I wish everyone the best year ever..
Keep the mind open to good things and picture them coming at you..let the negative stuff fall to the side..Remember to change the things you can. You can change today, but what is past, is past..just learn from the past.
Anger/hate is worse than cancer..just eats you away..I learned that very early in blocks your good..So my wish for all...Clear the mind and picture all the things you need and want to make your life better.

So on that note...Happy New Year to All..Sending you love and best wishes..

Till next time, keep looking up..

Now for the last time..I gave Santa a quick shadow shot on the rim of a glass candle..I didn't light the candle, so don't worry, he was fine..
The other shots are serious..from the deck and the sun rising in the east, gave the shadow of part of our house in the west..Kind of different..

Sending you all, A Happy New Year...

What A Fingerprint From God..

This actually made me catch my breath..I have never seen anything so beautiful..
This picture is from Space Weather and taken by
Ivan Marthinusen, Trondheim, Norway..
It is a nacreous cloud and this one looks like Mother-Of-Pearl..
At Space Weather they have a gallery with nacreous clouds..worth looking at..
I never tire of looking at this is so beautiful and what a fingerprint..Till next time, it sure pays to "keep looking up"...never know what you may see on God's canvas.

You have to check out Pampering Beki's blog for
other Fingerprints. She started this idea and it is so nice to see the beauty on this earth..
children, flowers, etc..Makes you stop , look around and be so thankful. It is true, "The best things in life are free".....

Isn't She Beautiful?

Here are two computer likenesses of what Cleopatra really looked like..
I read this in the Daily Mail
They pieced together these pictures from ancient artefact's, including a ring dating from Cleopatra's
reign 2,000 years ago. They seem to think she was of mixed ethnicity..
Isn't she beautiful? Thought this was an interesting article and worth reading..

Oldest Spider Web..

An undated handout photo supplied Monday Dec. 15, 2008 by Oxford University paleobiologist Martin Brasier showing the strands of an ancient spiders web . Brasier says the web, which is encased in amber, is 140 million years old, making it the world's oldest ever discovered. The dark globules are thought to be pieces of burnt sap.

Shadow Shot Sunday, doing it now..

Putting up my shadow shots now..We had lost our cable from the storm, last while I have the computer, I am putting this up..Hey Harriet has so many great people taking shadow shots and joining have to check them out. I enjoy being a rebel and pulling the Santa all over the place to get a shadow shot..You know, I will get coal in my stocking...First he fell in the bird feeder, then he was on the top of the feeder and finally he tried to get in the house, he is on the door knob..What the heck, after this month, he won't have to deal with me..Happy Shadow Shot Sunday!

The Walk Continues..

Now we go around the bend and pass the Reed Mansion..Quite a beautiful site. Then again pass the water, little dam..look to the side and you will see where they had to do quite a bit of work..The
ground was sliding into the water..and next would have been the houses..There were a couple of shacks/garages that almost went down the side of the hill..had to be taken down. I know this, I still would not care to live there..then we continue on home..It is quite the walk..about 1.6 miles..but remember the makes it a small workout..Course we had snow yesterday and couldn't go out ..Today should be good..One thing I won't do, walk if there is any ice..

Till next time, keep looking up..

Fingerprint Friday.

I missed this last week..Pampering Beki has this on her blog every Friday and I always enjoy joining in..
There are so many Fingerprints from God, many we take for granted. Now, here is a Fingerprint that is quite different..Vanilla bean..Yep, the only place in the USA that it is grown, Paauilo, Hawaii.
We bought this bean in Waimea, never got to the farm..You split the bean, pour vodka to the top of the bottle, set in a dark spot for 6 weeks and there you have it..One of the best tasting vanillas you ever had..This is the amazing your bottle gets empty you keep doing this process and it lasts for 25 years..Yes, you read that right..I was in awe when the woman told me this..What a Fingerprint..
Just in case you would like to check it

Till next time, keep looking up..
