Pictures: Took this shot back in 05 while I was still living in a stick and brick. Rose-Breasted Grosbeak, enjoying my seeds.
Cooler: It is a pretty day out today and the good thing is that the wind is not blowing much. Yesterday was madding windy!
WordPress/Google: I use the Noscript extension in Firefox and when I log into WordPress.com I usually have to allow WordPress.com and wp.com and I am good to go to do all the things I need to do on the blog. Over the last few days I have notice that I have to allow google.com and google-analytics.com in order for everything to work (Tags, proof reader and the tool bar just above the text box). I really don’t like allowing google anything pass my Noscript extension. If this continues I will stop using tags and find another way to proof read my text, its not like I am all that good at this writing thing anyways! I will miss the handy tool bar.
I do understand that this interconnection is what allows google search to find my blog and things in my post on the blog, however if I was worry about all that I would just use google blogger. I think I am one of these folks that would like to see big tech companies (like Google) broke apart.
Pictures: I took this shot a couple of years back and I can’t remember where but it looks like a nice place. I found this one deep in my files and I really like the light.
Weather: Well as I sit here today the wind is bring colder weather and the temperatures is going down today and the weekend looks like its is going to be chilly but Monday will start a warm up and next week looks nice. I just topped off my propane tanks so I’m ready for the cooler weekend!
Update: About 4 pm it started snowing here in Deming, it don’t do that a lot here but it is today. No problem, I’m burning the propane and I am toasty!
Pictures: My friend and I went to the Out of Africa wild life park and here are some shots from that. Today’s pictures of animals are unfortunately behind fences 😦 I am going to have a few of these. What are these animals you ask …? Sorry I don’t know, things went way too fast for me to keep up and take pictures too, but if someone would like to add the names in comments I’ll label them.
Update: Thank you (Boeta and gang) Our Rumbling Ocean For the IDs. Also, check this one Having fun with my Camera
Sable antelope (not mature) Here is a link to Wikipedia now that I know it’s ID.
Eland (biggest in Africa). Here is a link to Wikipedia
Weather: Still got the wind but it is a very nice day even with the wind. The temperatures are golden!
Pictures: Couple shots out the front door.
The white mountain in the top right is San Francisco Peaks (Highest point in AZ)
If you look close you can see the mountain in this one too.
Weather: I can’t remember this much wind in AZ but I am here later than I normally am. I have talk to others that think it has been unusually windy too. It is a pretty nice day other than that with temperatures about mid 80s.
Exercise : I walk near 4 miles today and partly up a mountain, good exercise for an old dude.
Pictures: Mountain Chickadee, I think these pictures were taken in NM.
Weather: It has been a bit cooler here today and lots of wind, but still lots of sunshine.
Pictures: Laid of the land shots.
Weather: The thing today is wind, lots of wind. I don’t mind it too much as long as it is not also cold and it is not.
Pictures: Yesterday the gang came by and mowed the lawn for me 😉
Mowing the Lawn.
The sheep dog, with a bit of a attitude. Looks like it is saying “Hey, don’t even be looking at my sheep!”
Exercise I only took a short walk today, about 2 miles.
Weather: It is going to take a cooler path starting tonight, but still too soon to go any farrier west just yet, so I may have me some cool nights. Not sure how cool it will be, my weather apps varies greatly. Today is beautiful with a little wind.
Weather Change: The cold front has gotten to Lake Havasu but it is still far better than all the other folks are getting throughout rest of the US. The lows here are only in the mid 40s and high all the way up to upper 60s, so compared to all the other places it is still very good. The wind is blowing pretty hard, makes for a lot of dust.
Weekly Exercise: Here is a weekly summary. Finally did enough walking to have a summary 🙂
WEEKLY WORKOUT SUMMARY
WEEK OF 11/09/2014 – 11/15/2014

One last Blue Jay: Time to start thinking about a new bird for next week.
Here is a Cactus bloom, Picture taken in AZ.
Stats: Ha, they are coming back down! Sure glad all those people are not looking at me now, I was getting paranoid, LOL!
Weather: The wind is being very persistent today as it was yesterday, but today’s winds are a little stronger, still I don’t mind it too much. It is warm and sunny so all is well.
Weather: The rain has cooled things down and the morning feels cool enough for a jacket. I heard it rain and hail a little last night but it didn’t sound like the hail was very big, I’m glad of that.
Update noon; it is a beautiful day with sunshine and a light wind. The afternoon may bring thunderstorms but that is Okay.
4:30 Update; We got a thunderstorm rolling in, lighting and very dark clouds.
Time for a New “Bird Of The Week”: What will it be … let me look at my old pictures ….. I think it will just be a very common bird from back east and one of my favorites. It will be Blue Jays and they are really fun birds to watch come to the feeders, I use to put out un-shelled peanuts for them everyday and they would come and get one and quickly go hide it and return for another, but as they where getting their second peanut another Blue Jay would be stealing the one they just hid. I use to enjoy their antics for hours, Blue Jays are full of fun personality. I would bet that all the other types of Jays are too but I have not gotten to watch them like I did the Blue Jays. I think it would be fun to have a few bird feeders set up somewhere in the mountains of the southwest and set for hours watching ……., maybe one day I will.
I’ll post more pictures as the week goes by.
