Clearing out a hard drive is about the same as trying to un-clutter your cupboards. It`s quite disappointing when you look in the cupboards to find something and there is so much clutter that it takes forever to find what you want. I have tried to sell things but it seems that they are only worth anything to me. Well now I have my solution, everything that hasn`t been used for 2 years gets thrown out or given away. But with a hard drive some of the old photos have to be kept because maybe that shot wont be taken again.The thing I do is make it 500 pixels wide so it can still be seen on the screen. At least they only occupy a few kb instead Mb`s.

I always take the sunrise in the morning as that starts my day taking photos. i now have thousands of these of which most have been reduced like this one.

Situations like this are quite rare, I only managed this twice with different frogs.

This fetus was taken from a dead Sperm Whale that washed up on the beach a few years ago. i also made a video of the flensing that was done by a Taxidermist who was going to re-assemble the bones for a museum.

A few years ago I had an Artistic moment and made things from some of the old wood we found in the  forest. They have all since been given away and this is the only reminder. Sometimes we have to keep these reminders even if it`s just for ourselves.

The reason this is still around is because all these were found while taking my brothers dog for a walk, when I stayed with him in the UK last year. They tasted great and I used to fill my pockets every day. There were fruits also if you wanted to pick them because the ones on the ground were over ripe or had maggots in them.

I like to keep a record of Alice`s life as I saw her through several years of her life when I stayed on the farm. She wasn`t looked after by anyone so we took her under our wing. I built her a house next to my stoop and she would walk with me around the bush. She was very protective and loved to be brushed when we got back, then she would sleep for a while.

I hope this tour wasn`t too boring, but I have sorted a lot of photos out. All the best Leo

Well after trying to get some of these Sea Beans to sprout I have taken a drastic method. On the large one that I soaked for a couple of weeks and then planted, but didn`t sprout, I filed it on the join until I found what looks like a joining of the two halves.

Have you ever used Firefox by Mozilla, I found it much better than the IE that comes with Windows. I do however have a problem with Windows Explorer  shutting down now and then.

I`m up early again as it`s mushroom time, these mushrooms are Pine Rings and are very flavorsome. I like them as a snack, lightly cooked in a bit of butter and served on a piece of toast.

Unlike this little frog the only ones that I have seen in the flowers have been pure white. The reason I was unable to photograph it was that I had the wrong glasses on and thinking it was a bug I shook it off.

Definitely Summer is on it`s way and the days are getting hotter from sunrise onward. The Sunrise is so early now that I sometimes don`t get up in time.

By 6 it`s already quite high in the sky. Lucky there were some clouds on the horizon or it would be like the one below.

I have planted a few Sunflowers in the garden to try and stop the birds from pecking my tomatoes. It seems to be working as the early ones are developing seeds. I never realized how tall they grow as I used a packet of old bird seed. Some are short like edging plants and some are over 2 meters high. It is getting so hot now that watering is sometimes a daily thing. This may be because the garden has a wall around it and brick paving instead of grass.

The long and the short of it.

On going back to the kitchen the washing machine was being loaded and this Rain Spider had to be extracted from a woolly jersey and put back in the garden. We have a lot of these come into the house most of the year. Pray Mantis are another co-inhabitant of the house but they do clear out the unwanted pests.

When I was in the UK last year I noticed that there are a lot of nuts that you can gather whilst taking the dog for a walk around the block.

In case you do not see my blogs between now and Christmas…I wish everybody a very Merry Christmas and Seasons Greetings to everyone else. Leo.
