Wild Wednesday – Happy Halloween!

I’d play Name That Mammal, but you already know this one: The wolf. Hey, it wouldn’t be Halloween without this classic creature of the moon.  Wolves are one of the most wide-spread mammals on the planet, they can be found on every land mass but Antarctica.  The rarest wolf is the Ethiopian wolf, check them […]

Weird Weekend – If Aliens Are Real…

Why don’t they just land on the White House lawn and introduce themselves?   Why don’t they let someone get a real picture/video instead of those grainy, jumpy images?   I’ve already shared my thoughts on whether or not life exists out there in our galaxy, or even our own solar system.   To discuss […]

Wild Wednesday – Guilty, Grinning Dogs

Too much overtime means today’s post will be short and sweet.  Funny dog video!   Have you met Denver?  He’s the guilty, cat-treat-eating dog, and this is one of my favorite YouTube videos.          

Weird Weekend – Werewolves? For Real?

You’re out hiking in the woods on a late summer evening.  The full moon is rising above the distant hills.  You can’t see it, but its brilliant silver light spills between the boles of the trees and the world around you is moving light and shadow.  The only sound is the rustle of your feet […]

Wild Wednesday – Did You Know?

A little public service announcement here:     I found it on this Facebook webpage.  I don’t know this group and don’t belong to it, but I felt this was important information to pass along.   Feral or abandoned cats are a growing issue for communities, and require a community response.  More and more animals […]

Weird Weekend – Ancient Megalithic Cultures

Sure, you know about the Egyptian pyramids. And you know about Stonehenge. We marvel at these giant structures and wonder at the mystery of their construction.  There is controversy regarding when they were built.  Have you ever been to an ancient site?  I’ve been to Stonehenge, and even amidst the touristy trappings you can still […]

Wild Wednesday – Nature In Action

One of the more enjoyable parts of working at the Zoo was that I had the opportunity to educate people; not just about the individual animals, but about habitats, ecosystems, and how species are interdependent upon each other.  Including us. One of the most common questions was, “What does it eat?”  Since most of our […]

Weird Weekend – Reiki, Is It For Real?

Two years ago I completed my Reiki Master Teacher training.  Reiki has been a journey that has quite literally transformed my life.  I am a better person because of it; I view people with far more compassion, I am kinder to myself, and I have level of contentment that I had not thought possible.  Yeah, […]

Wild Wednesday – Name That Mammal!

It all started when Hub began teaching me about music, and musicians.  You see when we first met, I was pretty musically stupid; although I liked music I had never paid much attention to the names of the bands, or the songs, that I liked.  Any of you out there who are musicians are sure […]

Weird Weekends Return!

Our world is a lot stranger than you might think.  Ghosts, UFO’s, Bigfoot, Atlantis, the Loch Ness Monster and more have been a part of our society’s framework for decades.  But have you ever noticed that when any of these extra-normal topics surface, people tend to lower their voices, as if they were talking about […]
