1. The Mad Scramble

I shot the video with an iPhone and the 8 mm app. The editing was done using the Splice app. Nova Rain added the voiceover.

2. All this ice-0-lation, self reflection and meditation is bearing fruit. I flipped out some in the last few days. Melancholy! Confusion! At loose ends. Adrift. Then boom. With the help of a friend I peeled off a huge, tough, nasty layer from my onion. “The unbearable lightness of being”. Growth is difficult. But I am better now. Closer to nobody.

3. I’ve been trying to get my oil and filters changed since January 2020. I’ve been turned away once. SpeedCo didn’t have the oil filter. That is just not true. There was some other reason. Beats me. I may have found a good local place. Maybe during July WHQ will be well lubricated once again.

Thanks 😊 so much for coming by and interacting. You brighten my day and bring joy to my heart. Stay safe and well out there in the CCE. I love you.

DISCARDED BOTTLE CAPS

Rusty bottle top

While I’ve been enjoying my ice-o-lation in Paradise I have been into photographing bottle caps.

Rusty bottle cap
The last one in this series. I drank this Shiner Bock and posed the cap on an old wooden picnic table.

Except for the Shiner Bock, these caps were all on the ground in Paradise. I saw them and photographed them on my morning walks. The Shiner Bock cap was disposed of appropriately.

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment.

Wandering Wednesday Photo

The patriotic photo prompt is from Ingrid, Live Laugh RV. Check out her blog.

This is the Liberty Day Celebration in small town USA. It almost seems like a scene from a Norman Rockwell painting.

Happy Fourth of July.

Peace, love and luck!

I like the fisheye lens from Olloclip.  

These pictures were taken by me at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum with the Hipstamatic app, and the Olloclip fisheye lens on an iPhone 6.

Shiny Rocks v.6

A week late, but here it is, the latest edition of Shiny Rocks.

Quotes

Peace in the brain. It is a very good thing. ~ Joanna DeVoe The KICKASS WITCH : Putting The “K” In Magick
The greenest building is the one that is already built. ~ Adaptive Reuse

 Web sites

For $5 a month E-junkie will help you sell your stuff.
Do you have expertise to sell?  Clarify will help you do that.
Web We Want is a global movement to defend, claim and change the future of the Web.  Connect, share and take action with others to build the Web we want.

Thoughts I thunk

Escape the cult of average.

Change the lens and change reality.

The magic sword of truth.
The odd thing is we all seem to have our own truth.

People have made a lot of rules.  Rules aren’t bad.  They help in a lot of cases.  But life isn’t about rules.  Learn and teach critical thinking and what is right in a situation becomes easier to find.

Relax, take a deep breath.  Get ready.  It’s going to change.

Interesting idea

Positive Psychology  Positive psychologists seek “to find and nurture genius and talent” and “to make normal life more fulfilling”, rather than merely treating mental illness. Positive psychology is primarily concerned with using the psychological theory, research and intervention techniques to understand the positive, adaptive, creative and emotionally fulfilling aspects of human behavior.

He learned to measure the stars.  Now he is going home.

 Double exposure

Photographic evidence that a child can be in two places at once.

Background  

People who can see me in non-cyber space know I love shiny rocks.  I pick them up.  I carry them with me. I randomly give them away. I accept them as gifts. They sit on windowsills and tables.
This is the fourth in a series of biweekly features about sharing the gems and jewels I find along the way  (quotes, songs, thoughts, notes, websites, photos I take, photos I see).   I hope you like the shiny cyber rocks. I may update Shiny Rocks all during the day as I come across new shiny things.
If you have some shiny rocks you’d like to share leave them in the comments.   Let me know what you think.
May truth, love, and light embrace you and emanate from you.

I don’t think I’ve posted any of these before. Forgive me if I have.

DeSoto Family Fun Park
There is a nice cave to visit.

Something new is opening in the town down the road. It looks like it will be an interesting place.

These experiments help me see new directions I could take with photography.

Mr. M.D.
Now can you tell me, tell me, tell me,
What’s ailin’ me?”

My throat
oh my throat
Thursday morning I woke up and couldn’t swallow without great pain. Coughing was an act of personal torture. Talking was totally out. I had to go into work at noon so I picked up some throat numbing lozenges while I was out. I gargled with warm salt water. I drank pickle juice.
Friday morning I was a bit better but it was still difficult to swallow. With the help of the lozenges, tea with garlic, lemon, ginger, and honey, aspirins, and popsicles it improved during the day. I thought I was on the road to recovery.
Saturday morning dispelled that illusion. Saturday was the worst morning of all. Tea with garlic, ginger, honey and lemon, gargling with warm salt water, aspirins, and numbing lozenges weren’t doing the trick. I had to have medical attention. The sooner the better. At 7am I headed towards an urgent care facility. On the way I passed a closer one and turned around. They weren’t open yet so I went next door to Ground Up Coffee and Smoothies for a cappuccino.

I knew they were good because I’d been there before. The warm coffee soothed my throat and the two shots of espresso boosted my energy level dramatically. I finished the cappuccino and headed back to the clinic.

It took a while because I was a new patient but they got around to me in 20 minutes or so.   The nurse called my name and hustled me off to examine room 1.

She took my temperature (99.8), blood pressure (140/90), oxygen level (98), and pulse (102). She swabbed my throat. I almost puked. Then she scurried away with her sample.

20140215-174430.jpg

Pretty soon the doctor came along. He was friendly, out going, non-judgmental, and seemed to be a nice guy. I wish my GP was so cool. He was unhappy with the blood pressure and we talked about that for a while. When I mentioned the cappuccino, he went ‘OH’. And told me I shouldn’t drink those. He listened to my heart and lungs, looked in my throat, looked in my ears. He prescribed an antibiotic and a decongestant and labeled it strep throat. He said a nurse would be along with a steroid shot and my prescription.

It wasn’t long before she showed up and said drop your pants.
OH NO! Not a butt shot!
Maybe I should have worn underwear?
She gave me the shot and prescription slip and sent me on my way.

Think how much better my medical care would have been if I hadn’t been taking pictures, texting, and playing on facebook with my cell phone. roflmao

So what did I do next?  I dropped off my prescriptions at the pharmacy next door and went back to the coffee shop for another cappuccino (sorry doc).  I had to do something while I waited. Right?
After the shot and one dose of each medication I do feel a lot better. I was even able to eat soft food tonight.  The real test will be in the morning. Keep your fingers crossed.

Peace, love, and light
