    Bonanza? Yes, I remember seeing the trailers for it before it started ... er ... back around the 1960s I think. Has it started yet then? Don't say I missed it. Not much point in watching the latest episodes now then, is there?
    'Sharing an experience creates a reality.' Create a new reality today.
    'There has to be some give and take.' If I can take my time I'm willing to give it.
    'The most difficult criticism that a writer has to comprehend is silence.' So speak up.

    There's a tv channel that has reruns I believe and when I looked it up they had the old seasons on hulu.

    If you're looking for "relatively" old TV shows, here is something I noticed.

    What I enjoyed as a child was The Shadow and Gunsmoke on the radio. They didn't have TV in Wyoming at the time.

    I skimmed through the video and noticed one of the shows introduced was The Rat Patrol. One I used to watch later on. Haven't watched TV in years so I wouldn't know what's playing nowadays.

    Watched three coyotes tumbling around on a hillside. They were watching me and then went back to playing. Birds of prey were squawking; not near the coyotes, but just in general; the peacocks were still at it as I got closer back to town. They live in the houses, but right near the edge. The little pond at the top of the stagecoach trail was nearly gone. Baby toads were all over the cracked mud flats, and there were still plenty of tadpoles. I'd say they got maybe two weeks, and then the water will be all gone.

    At the shipyard, I overheard I guy talking about purchasing a $70,000 pick-up truck.
    I kinda like my 40 year old truck I spent $1700 on.
    I just hope buying that trucks makes that guy happy. I really do.
    Opportunities abound! Land and titles available! Be bold! Enquire now!
    See Cazique Gregor MacGregor of details.

    The vagaries of Nature. Scares the s**t out of most folks, so they pretend we're superior with some divinity watching over us

    Ride on I bet you'll find more serenity at the end of the rainbow than the materialistic dude.

    Ran across a meme of an angry duck saying, "Whatever you do don't call be Donald!"

    I like when people show some imagination

    Old age (or whenever a biobot breaks down) crap is for the birds, sorry birds. I spent the last few days in the hospital because predominate culture medicine jumps to focus on what they believe the core problem is. I was taken in because I blacked out. They did identify the reason I blacked out as water in the lungs. That being relatively simple to alleviate though, they kept me in the hospital because my heart rate was below forty. What they refused to accept is that my guardian spirit is Brown Bear, which can slow it’s heart rate to match metabolism processes.

    Now before you scoff at such thinking [remember I’m a student of natural history], compare it with predominate culture beliefs where for the most part they seemingly believe they can destroy habitat and biodiversity in excess without affecting the quality of life their children will experience. My construction of points is no where as farfetched as a lot of what I see and read to make outselves feel better

    Man is the most insane species. He worships an invisible God and destroys a visible Nature, unaware that this Nature he’s destroying is this God he’s worshipping.” ~ Hubert Reeves


    Somewhat related, is that the wife stayed with me the whole time. That even though she missed out on two golf tournaments she was supposed to play in. She made up for it by berating me for not having gotten the lawn mowed first

    With my mind on the misdirection of human intelligence, I remembered a video I watched some time back. I wonder how many truly understand and appreciate what is said. Surly our current directions are showing that not enough care.

    On a followup visit to my doctor, after my hospitalization, he made arrangements for further visits with other specialists. Life is coming full circle and I can rest easy in having done my little bit for the world my grandson will have to get by in. If only I can finish illustrating my book in the hope of reaching the crowd that might in time benefit from it.

    Anyway, for one of the specialist areas I interjected that he not send me to a particular practice that has walnut paneling throughout their office, because I wasn't going to benefit the Mr. Avarice crowd. I was pleased when he said he wouldn't think of it. His words, "I understand as I have a problem with corporate medicine also, and that group will cut anybody when there's a profit to be made."

    I mention this because it renewed my appreciation of the potential of humankind. Professional or laborer, comfortable or hand to mouth, there are those that understand where our ignorance, hubris, and greed are taking us.

    Gotta go, I hear the wife coming to shut me down for the night.

    Take care all.
