Today is Happy International Women’s Day. Hmm? Well more power to you ladies…so to speak. This made me wonder if there is a Happy International Men’s Day? Well there is…November 19th. May I just be a tad non-PC here. Well never mind…….

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game cited unspecified safety reasons for keeping secret a helicopter wolf hunt in the Lolo zone last month. Because of safety concerns, the department thought it was best to carry out the action and then notify the public about it,” department spokesman Mike Keckler said. The department, with the help of federal wildlife agents, shot and killed 23 wolves from helicopters.” The Spokesman-Review
This is another one of those multi-angled issues: ranchers, hunters, animal advocates, anti-gun, anti-hunting etc. The State manipulating, controlling, “protecting” resources at every turn and often screwing it up. The secrecy of all this activity is as distressing as the heli-kill. I wonder who from the Idaho Fish & Game invited a buddy a long for some fun times? Just wondering……….
Wildlife management, whether wolves, fish or elk seems to be primitivism cloaked in science by guys that garnered C’s while in college. Ranchers initiating selective kills of wolves killing livestock/livelihood/food is one thing. Mismanaged numbers re elk and secrecy is quite another!
A yard, neglected and forgotten because of life’s demands and distractions. Priorities demand the owner turn away from Springtime and past efforts to create a peaceful place. The peace is still there for the seeker. The beauty is there, but not seen now.

The Banana Split, and its variations, is credited with its beginnings in a soda fountain in Latrobe, Pennsylvania in 1904 when an apprentice pharmacist named David Strickler concocted the Banana Split for young people to boost business. A whopping 10 cents was charged for the dessert. In short order the popularity of the dish spread.
Charles Rudolph Walgreen, who operated pharmacies in Chicago, adopted the dish as a centerpiece for Walgreen pharmacy soda fountains and the dessert became even more popular.
Most of you have no doubt heard about the Yellowstone Caldera, as well as the New San Madrid Fault Line, and of course the San Andreas Fault. Each is reputed to potentially cause cataclysmic destruction if the big one happens. In particular, with the Yellowstone Caldera, the destruction would reach out 500 to 1000 miles, thereby altering a large portion of the country.
The story about the Yellowstone Caldera is indicative of so much about science today…looming doom and mixed messages and credibility. Stories abound of a looming crisis, even a secret crisis in which the government is keeping a lid on the true science and probable destruction about to happen. Supposed scientific experts like show boat Michio Kaku have made pronouncements that exceed their fields of expertise.
Here is an interesting Seismic Monitoring Site for the Yellowstone area that shows activity. It is a start at reviewing some of the activity in the area. Particularly interesting if you live in that region. IS THIS THING ON
