The Little Things

4 posts in this topic

I took a walk this morning thinking the grouse just might be starting the "drum" thing....I did spot one lone grouse but he spotted me first...end of that theory! grin...but also figured as long as I was out there this gray, wet, white snowy day....I'd snap a few images of things that we ordinarilly would pass by as we stroll along the trails....also heard geese honking in the distance this quite peaceful morning......a sure sign of things to come!

Those are nice shots. It's good to see pics of different things we pass by and never take the time to look at or capture with the camera.

Thanks Ranger....I guess these images bring out the "naturalist" tendencies in me (which I've always had since I was a kid I guess)..these tiny ,the "insignificant" little things are in and around our lives each day and rarely get any recognition but certainly add to the total beauty of everyday life in the outdoors.....We're so used to these everyday natural items in our lifes that they certainly and usually do get passed by ...glad there's others out there that see these "incidental" little things ....they can and do add "beauty" to our life's however so subtly...it's what "nature" is after all....

Excellent images, the thistle image is VERY nice. My son and I were taking turns throwing the little balls (featured in your last image) at one another's shirts the other day. They really stick well to cotton t shirts, those barbs are a fantastic natural design.

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
