Your backyard and the woods... Are you afraid?



Pretty soon we will be afraid of our own backyard.  Folks are so afraid that any natural darkness should be obliterated at once with 100 watts bulbs!
Have you noticed that anytime there is a story that involves being in the woods, you know what will happen?  
Remember what happened after we  saw the movie "Jaws?"  The ocean was never the same.     

 If your backyard has just one anemic tree with no shrubs for small birds to shelter; you are not doing enough.
 Birds and butterflies travel for miles. They are constantly seeking shelter, food, and water.  Even a windowsill can help.  I promise that you will enjoy it and the animal kingdom will bless you!                                                
The Abelia Canyon Creek has been the most favored bush by butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds.

Let's Kick the Can


Henry Thoreau: “The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation.”  
             Well, music can help soothe the way in this cruel world.

Remember the classic Twilight Zone episode, "Kick the Can?"
In the story, one of the geezers realizes that if they would all just move for the pure fun of it, the joyful feeling of youth would return. They would literally turn into kids again!

 Studies have found that dancing is the best physical activity.  It's even helpful with Alzheimer.   Just make sure that you play it loud!  If feeling a bit shy, lower the curtains to keep you hidden from pesky neighbors!
