JDA: I’m honestly out of ideas…
…I know, let’s start looking at stuff together.
Here’s a few totally random gifs for yall!

Here’s another couple more random web finds.
Up first is self-explanatory – a grid of dosages of radiation from various sources. I’ve seen these before, but this one’s fairly new, updated to include some Fukushima numbers. (click it to see larger)
And here’s a herd of mountain goats enjoying the views and safety of a dam.
And here’s a great NYC subway photo from the 80’s – really captures the climate at the time. More of this photo set can be found here
Things are finally greening up, and our chicks are rounding out. Here’s some photos taken during a brief moment between rainshowers.
I was able to join a tour, with the Forest Service, county officials and assorted ologists, of last summers Pole Creek Fire. It burned nearly 40-square miles of the Deschutes NF, private land and Three Sisters Wilderness Area northwest of Bend.
Took the ole camera along with me, here’s some shots:
The coop is up! Chicks spent their first night outside in their new pad, seemed to like the change in scenery and extra space.
Also, I want to say Happy Mother’s Day! This goes out to my mama especially, but also warm thoughts and memories for those who’s Mother’s aren’t just a phone call away. Love you!
Our pullets are now over a week old, with stubby wing and tail feathers starting to poke through the fluff. Here’s a video of them playing with popcorn.
We have 4 varieties:
Rhode Island Red (We named her Rhonda)
Black sexlink hybrid (havent named yet)
Barred Rock (Plymouth), haven’t settled on a name yet
Mottled Java (named her Panda)
Also, the above list is ordered by intelligence. Panda is reeeeallly dumb 😛
Went up to Todd Lake with two friends and a whole lot of dogs – five of them – with everyone piled into the truck. Joyous mayhem ensued.
Just got back from hiking over 40 miles of the Rogue River, from Grave Creek to Illahe with some friends. Here’s a nifty slideshow of the adventure. We covered the distance in 4 days (3 nights), a pace that allowed for long afternoon relaxation and frequent breaks to swim and explore.
I’m planning to add captions and such to the slides eventually, but they should be fairly enjoyable without…for now.
Also, go fullscreen to view them better! (bottom right button with 4 outward arrows)
I promise that I’ll limit my cute animal pictures to a minimum, to you know, keep the blog respectable 😉
But here’s one of the better ones I’ve seen.
