"Life comes from the earth and life returns to the earth"

- Chuang Tzu

Having notched 77 on my belt of life, I understand I’m a bit long in the tooth. But do I really have to put up with this Guy following me around on a photoshoot 😂

 

Turkey Vultures eat carrion, which they find largely by their excellent sense of smell. Mostly they eat mammals but are not above snacking on reptiles, other birds, amphibians, fish, and even invertebrates.

 

They prefer freshly dead animals, but often have to wait for their meal to soften in order to pierce the skin. They are deft foragers, targeting the softest bits first and are even known to leave aside the scent glands of dead skunks.

 

Thankfully for them, vultures appear to have excellent immune systems, happily feasting on carcasses without contracting botulism, anthrax, cholera, or salmonella.

 

Turkey Vultures nest in rock crevices, caves, ledges, thickets, mammal burrows and hollow logs, fallen trees, abandoned hawk or heron nests, and abandoned buildings. They may scrape out a spot in the soil or leaf litter, pull aside obstacles, or arrange scraps of vegetation or rotting wood. Once found, many of these nest sites may be used repeatedly for a decade or more.

 

The oldest recorded Turkey Vulture was at least 16 years, 10 months old when it was found in Ohio, the same state where it had been banded.

We recently had to fell a self-sown holly tree that had totally outgrown the place it had chosen.

This is the Carter Shields cabin in Cades Cove, Tennessee. No matter how many times I visit there, I never tire of photographing it. I can't tell you how many times I have walked up the path to this log cabin and I always enjoy going through it. I did it with my children when they were small and now I do the same with my grandchildren. I hope as they grow older, they will have the same appreciation for these historical sites. ...I wish I could spend just a day with the family that lived here to see what life was like for them. I would have so many questions that they would be ready for me to go when my time was up!

THE FOLLOWING IS TAKEN FROM THE OFFICIAL DAYTONA BEACH PIER WEBSITE:

 

The Daytona Beach Pier is the most recognizable landmark on Daytona Beach and has been the center of beach life since the beginning of the community.

 

The original pier, constructed of palm logs, was built before the turn of the 20th century and extended 600 feet into the ocean. It was built by Thomas Keating and was known as the Keating Pier. It was located at the end of Main Street, where the present pier is located.

 

On January 20, 1920 a tremendous fire destroyed the pavilion and most of the pier. In 1924, Keating sold the remains of the pier to Jeter McMillan who tore it down and began construction of a new pier. The new Pier Casino opened on June 11, 1925. The pier was 1,000 feet in length and featured a Victorian style building. Its ornate ballroom could accommodate 2,000 dancers and hosted some of the top bands of the day. In addition to dances, the Pier Casino was the scene of charity balls, weddings, beauty contest, social events as well as civic meetings.

 

During the years of beach racing, some of the pilings were removed to allow race cars to pass under the pier. The Pier Casino was also a popular location for photos of the famous racers who came to Daytona Beach. Those photos were seen worldwide and helped Daytona Beach to become known as "The World's Most Famous Beach." The pier has changed ownership several times since McMillan died in 1946. In 2004, it was acquired by the city of Daytona Beach who then leased it to a corporate operator. In 2009, the city took operational control of the pier, completely refurbished it and sought a long-term, quality tenant for the casino building.

 

On June 5, 2012, the Daytona Beach Pier reopened and the restaurant Joe's Crab Shack opened its doors and began serving its unique brand of seafood and casual entertainment.

 

Over the years, the pier has withstood the constant pounding of the Atlantic surf, fire and hurricanes, but it still stands, just as it was built in 1925. It has been known as the Ocean Pier, Keating Pier, Pier Casino, Main Street Pier and now the Daytona Beach Pier, but to most people it is simply known as "the pier" - the most recognizable landmark on Daytona Beach and source of many Daytona memories.

Thinking it was time to dust off the old avatar and do some evolving, it is the future afterall. So many more expressions with my new LeLutka Bento head!

 

I still have more customizing to do and such, but it's late.

Flit may have just gotten cuter 💖

Hello Everyone,

I hope everyone is having an amazing Sunday, staying warm, with plenty of hot tea and peanut butter cookies (yes I spent the morning baking, LOL.) I am exhausted from preparing for the week and doing a few more forgotten things for Christmas, so I just wanted to plop in my chair at the computer and log in world and do some photos. Remembering I had one I was already working on, I flipped over to Photoshop and stared with glossy eyes at the app. I was going for a moon light train ride and a late dinner, all alone hoping for that mysterious and very good looking stranger to come along and ask if they could join me for some dessert. Some witty banter about already having my cake and going to eat it too, causing some laughter and inviting the person to have a seat and then talking throughout the snowy night as we speed along on the tracks to our destination.

Lol, my imagination always begins to run a muck when i am tired. It is always hard for us singles to be alone during Christmas and the Holidays, so my wish for all of us out in this giant world is that if you are feeling lonely, or have no one to go to on Christmas, that you do not stay in your home alone, but maybe drum up the courage and go to an all night diner, or a 24/7 store, a bar, or a place to Volunteer, a nursing home and strike up a conversation with someone and give a little of yourself, the universe is always gracious when we give love and are cheerful in helping others. Then you can come home as I plan too and open that bottle of wine and turn on its a wonderful life! :)

 

Have a lovely rest of your Sunday and a safe beginning to your week and again, thank you for allowing me to share my photos with you.

 

xoxo,

Hildda

Jaksh Fall moved swiftly and silently through the woods, guided by the pair of elvish amazons named Iris and Ash. Even with two voluptuous scantily clad elves before him, the normally ebullient Ranger was silent as he followed the pair. Keeping up the punishing pace set by the two amazons, Jak's mind wandered to his last conversation with Lady Alanna who entrusted her life and safety into his hands and he was determined not to fail her or the rest of his companions.

 

As the trail grew steeper, the two amazons picked up the pace forcing the young ranger to focus, applying the mental techniques to push away fatigue and pain taught to him by his namesake grandsire. The two amazons looked back with surprise as Jak matched their pace and returned to his thoughts. He admitted that his thoughts about the beautiful elven healer, were conflicted. His grandfather’s tales of her ranged from heroic to extremely explicit and actually being in close proximity to her, was exciting and frightening at the same time. Add in the beautiful warrior Lin’s pure, raw sensuality and Lady Shar’s beauty and he was finding himself increasingly distracted and he was finding the idea of a mission away from them appealing while he settled his mind about the three women.

 

Finally, the three arrived into a clearing, the signs of intense combat obvious to even untrained eyes. The taller of the two amazons, Iris, pointed with her spear at the clearing and spoke tersely, “We are here. Search and you will find only goblin trails. We will wait until sundown, and then you are done.”

 

Jak’s eyebrows rose at the implicit threat in that statement and shrugged his shoulders as he walked around the perimeter of the glade. Looking up as Nonna flew around him, her lilting laugh like the whispering wind through the leaves. “Hello Nonna… Come to keep an eye on me for Lady Alanna? Well do me a favor and let me know if one of those amazons tries to put a spear in my back.”

 

Ash smirked at Jak and twirled her spear, “You move well for a human, it would be a shame to have to kill you.”

 

“That’s a comfort…” Jak quipped back.

 

“But we’d still kill you.” Iris deadpanned.

 

“Yeah, I got that… now excuse me I have some Rangering to do…”

 

Jak walked into the center of the clearing, taking a deep breath and centering himself, he focused on the training his grandfather passed to him. Clearing his mind, he focused on nothing and observed everything around him. For the handsome ranger, the glade came alive with scents, sounds and motion and as he focused, he could visualize the battle that occurred here. Concentrating intently, he ‘watched’ as the dimly perceived figures moved backwards in time, instinctively sensing the flow of bodies around a certain point.

 

Walking carefully, he traced the track, following it into the wood, so focused on the task at hand that he ignored the two warrior women treading softly behind him. As he rounded a large oak tree, a scent tickled his nose that was out of place in these woods. Kneeling down the Ranger plucked a leaf, his face twisting with distaste as he identified the scent.

 

Iris tilted her head, her gaze lingering on Jak’s broad back and tight leather breeches and whispered to the giggling Ash in elvish, “He does have a nice ass too, perhaps we’ll give him a last moment of pleasure before he dies?”

 

Jak looked up and smirked as he replied in flawless elvish, “That won’t be necessary… I’ve found your kidnappers. Three humans, one carrying about 10 stone over his left shoulder. Your princess I presume?”

 

The two elven amazons gaped in surprise, “What? How did you know where to look?” Iris exclaimed.

 

Jak tapped a set of tracks leading deeper into the forest, “One of your kidnappers drank too much ale, and pissed over by this log. It’s a distinctive smell if you’ve been in as many taverns as I have…”

 

Ash sniffed the air and scrunched her petite nose, “Never smelled that before… “

 

Jak stood up and looked at the trail and winked at Ash, “You need to get out more often… It looks like they’re heading to the coast. But we better follow the trail for a while to make sure they didn’t double-back.”

 

Iris clapped Jak on the shoulder and smiled wide, “Who are you human that moves so well?”

 

Jaksh grinned roguishly and replied, “I’m Jaksh Fall, and I’m the best damn ranger you’ll ever meet.”

They need old growth forests to support all their life stages and especially because they eat almost entirely a diet consisting of Northern Flying Squirrels.

 

The birds in BC are basically extirpated with a captive breeding program that was doomed to fail from the start.

 

WA did a better job of managing the logging of old growth forests and conserving this bird but still are battling with the increasing population of Barred Owls. Barred Owls take over the territory of Spotted Owls and push them out of an area causing them to ultimately starve and perish. We can't blame the Barred Owls as we paved their way over here. The Barred Owls have also displaced and killed off many Western Screech-Owls. In Vancouver and the Lower Mainland we no longer have Screech-Owls due to development and Barred Owls.

 

Seeing these owls is always a treasure but along comes with it sadness that it may be the last time I see that particular bird or even species. Each year they seem to continually decline at a rate of 7% per year and population estimates in WA are around 200 birds.

 

We must do all we can to prevent this owl from disappearing from the little remaining old growth forests we have left if not the forests will be a far darker place.

 

On a happy note seeing this species a few days ago put an end to my North American Owl Big Year. I never set out to do a big year but due to travel and circumstance I was able to see all 19 species of naturally occurring owls in NA (excluding Mexico) in 12 months.

 

Getting Back to the Spotted Owls it was fantastic to see them and to see a few juveniles which give us all hope for the future. These owls do not reproduce every year so to see 2 healthy, curious babies you need to be greatful. They have a long hard road ahead and I wish them all the success and luck in the world... they are going to need it.

Hello and Happy Sunday everyone, it seems I have been away from Second Life and taking photos forever, I felt like I was to the point of not being able to remember how to point and shoot anymore, lol. RL has been so busy the past few weeks, travelling for work and helping babysit my nieces and nephews, I did not have a moment to really log into SL and do any photos, but back home and things are quieting down, so time to dig through my closet and pull out some outfits and dive back into modeling. I do have a lot of fan requests to get to and I promise I will, just please be patient and they are coming. :)

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and again thank you for all your wonderful support and love, you are very appreciated.

 

XOXO,

Hildda

Dear Flickr and SL friends:

First of all, I would like to give everyone a big thank you to those who have followed and supported me over the years and still do!

 

It's crazy but it's actually 11 years since I logged in for the first time on something they called Second Life. . .

 

The years have just rushed away. It has given me many many hours of joy but also some sadness. . .

Friends have come and gone, but thanks to SL I have many friends all over the world, some of them I will remember forever and some not. . .

Many times I have thought to stop. . . but for the love to take pictures and meet the ones I care about and love has made me to still stay!

 

Who knows how this trip will end?

 

Sincerely, your Ghost

Ghost:

You create the world of Second Life into your dream, you bring the avatar into that dream, and You fill it with their subconscious.

You:

How could I ever acquire enough detail to make them think that its reality?

Ghost:

Well dreams, they feel real while we're in them, right? It's only when we wake up that we realize how things are actually strange.

Let me ask You a question, You never really remember the beginning of a dream do You?

You always wind up right in the middle of what's going on.

You:

I guess, yeah.

Ghost:

So how did we end up in SL?

You:

Well we just came from the real w...

Ghost:

Think about it my dear Friend, how did You get here? Where are You right now?

You:

We're dreaming?

Ghost:

You're actually in the middle of your run away World right now, visualizing . This is your first lesson in shared Second Life dreaming

Walking through Heartwood Forest, the sun broke through to reveal the beauty of last autumn's leaves and new life in the shape of the lichen clinging to the hewn log.

Today, June 17th, is my real life birthday and I am celebrating by logging off the grid for a day and spending some time with my family, with the brief exception of publishing this special little post.

I logged into SL this afternoon to find news about a very generous free group gift from Blueberry, a 50% off sale, a new release at a super low price AND a free draw in celebration of 7 years in Second Life! I'll tell you all about it on FabFree!!

Hello Everyone,

oh what a week and a half! I just returned yesterday from a long work conference and I am so tired. I love travelling, going to different cities and places, but this time people were just rude, the weather was freezing, food was awful, a couple of sleazy guys who would not leave me alone and very boring, long meetings. How wonderful it was to board the plane and return home and lock the door, unpack and let the past week fade away into the past. The other downside was I was not able to do any photos and I do not like not being able to do that. I have a number of fan requests and I promise I will get to them all in time. :)

I logged in world yesterday evening and connected with friends and SL family, anyone who knows Second Life for awhile knows that time flows much faster than real life. what seams like a few days in RL is two weeks in SL and people were messaging me as if I had fallen off the earth. lol.

Anyway, i am happy to be home and post a photo for you all, a simple outfit of the day, I did not do anything special, but I wanted to dress for a warm climate as I am ready for Winter to be over!

Hugs and kisses to you all and thank you for allowing me to share my photos with you and have a wonderful Saturday.

 

xoxo,

Hildda
