Not really on topic, but I thought I'd pass on a link to a PBS "Nature" episode about a naturalist who lived among animals (wild turkeys), and learned much about their ways and communication. The guy is soft-spoken, perceptive and patient, and tells a great story. In fact it knocked me right out when I saw it.

I'm new here but I suspect that this homestead didn't start out with the intention of getting this fancy.

I can fix that phone with a #2 ball peen hammer. :-)

Here is the site to see when the ISS is visible where you are.

I saw the ISS flyover at my house once. It was almost directly over head and it was huge.

BTW I saw the show on Wild turkeys too. Interesting.

Yes he does but don't worry the facility keeps him under maximum security so there is little danger he can escape.

@ t-festo, nice that the "facility" gives you access to the net... thanks for the link - like a glimpse into the future with the changing demographics. Can see JW &
Benita rocking on the crazy train - terrific trumpet work
& look by Metalachi.
where else except tfl? diversity is a beautifully twisted thing. Muchos Grassy-Ass to our host.

I wish to thank BBC for reassuring my Faith in God.I think that there is just to much to all of it for BBC to actually comprehend it.When you use your power of reasoning you have to say Oh My God!

not turkeys or Metalachi, but since JW is talking beach holiday sojourn... something else for the mix.
things aren't always what they seem.

Thanks for the photo info. We're headed out to Terlingua Ranch in the morning with our G7 for a few days of shooting the region. Will be practicing night shots this time around.
