West Coast whisky stones.

Why buy a manufactured item? Why not use authentic Scottish stones?

Guardian.UK: Unique underwater world discovered in Pitcairn Islands.

“This is one of the most intact marine ecosystems on the planet and right now it is in danger.” At the very least, the ghost of Fletcher Christian will thank you.

Scythe Supply.

Weed whackers are just too damned finicky. I’m thinking of going old-school. Easier on the back, too.

National Park Service Press Releases: Drones prohibited.

Totally expected. “In April, visitors at Grand Canyon National Park gathered for a quiet sunset, which was interrupted by a loud unmanned aircraft flying back and forth and eventually crashing in the canyon.” Sounds like you can get a ‘special use’ permit, however.

365/2: 167.

Would’ve gotten closer, but the grass was alive with young rattlers, fresh out of their hidey-hole. Not my cup of tea. Shortly after these shots, these beauties beat a hasty retreat.

The so-called “honey” Moon ...

Looks like every other flippin’ Moonrise. Give me a break with the trumped-up Moon events, internet. What’s next, ‘Stevia Moon’? ‘Xylitol Moon’? I want an ice-cream slathered, Heath Bar Crunch Moon, or I’m not gonna bother next time.

NWS ABQ:1941 Anomalous Precipitation.

A really fascinating analysis of a NM weather anomaly. But also look at the precipitation graph! 1942-1959 was a pretty dessicated period. Bookmarked.

Archaeology News Network: Rabbit holes lead to hill fort discovery.

I can’t help but think this is a ‘drone’ opportunity. A little jobby that duplicates everything a rabbit does, except with metal detectors and ground-penetrating radar.

Meditate on the happiness of blue flax in the early morning light. They only open for a few hours; soon as the sun’s getting warm, they close up.
