    Great pictures of the tree, Suzy and it looks like a red maple to me.

    Here's a picture that DH took this morning of our Bevo (we have a black and white steer also but I don't think he's as good looking as this one):

    I have never posted a picture before so this is a little experiment. If this works, it is me in front of my crazy husbands football watching wall. (Yes, this is in my house!!) Please disregard if you cannot see the image .

    Sneezles,

    Needless to say, our house is the "party house" for watching any sporting events. It's a pretty fun feature to have....at times . The only time it really comes in handy for me is during the overlap between baseball and football, I've got to watch my Angels!!...although after last night it's become increasingly more difficult .

That's a pretty standard size sprinkler head next to him, so you have a good idea of his size.

    What kind of lizard is that?

    We have gekos and occasionally they get in the house. The cat usually finds them before I do. She hasn't killed any that I know of.

    Here's a picture of last nights dinner taken for my blog

    Here are some pictures I took a few minutes ago at the Red River Revel. It is the largest food, music, and art festival in the city where I live. The first picture is funnel cakes being made. The second picture is tie-dye clothing for sale. The third picture is gourmet pasta for sale. The fourth picture is an archaeological dig for kids to have fun with. The fifth picture is "musical instruments" for kids to play with.

    Gumbeaux,

    I went to the Red River Revel a couple of years ago - a friend's parents live there and we all went to visit at just the right time! It was SO much fun! I had pretty much forgotten about it, but should probably plan to go again and take the weeone next time!

    Some pix from the last pool day this year. It was a gorgeous day, up into the 80's, and very unusual for this late in the season here, so it was a good day to veg out around the pool. Tomorrow is supposed to bring back "seasonable" temps, so today was our friends' pool's "last hurrah" -- tomorrow they close it up for the season.

    Beautiful picture of the hummingbird. I don't think I've ever seen one "standing still".

    OK; since we're posting hummingbirds . . . not taken today (sorry, Gumbeaux), but a cool shot if you can see it (I know it's small):

    We had about 12-15 hummingbirds all around us at this location in Colorado.

    As you cook, you enjoy omniscience about food that no amount of label reading can match. Having retaken control of the meal from the food scientists, you know exactly what is in it. (Unless you start w/cream of mushroom soup, in which case all bets are off.) To reclaim control over one's food, to take it back from industry & science, is no small thing; indeed, in our time, cooking from scratch qualifies as subversive. ~~ Michael Pollan

    Gumbeaux, what kind of camera do you have? That is such a wonderful picture. My camera died this week and I am looking for a replacement.

    You guys are driving me crazy. The colors are so beautiful, and they all look like they were taken by a professional. I would love to turn all of them into jigsaw puzzles. I am hooked on them. Do them all the time on-line. Maybe you could submit them. www.jigzone.com That would be so cool.

    Gumbeaux, please tell me you DID buy some of that pasta. It just looked too good to pass up.

    Here's a food shot too - these are some cupcakes we made to give away to our Realtor as a thank you...

    I've heard it referred to as an "Alligator Lizard". I went back and looked at the other pic of the pair of lizards I posted back in March and it doesn't really look like them. Must be another kind. The older pic someone called them Anoles.

    This picture is just too beautiful to be real. DH thinks the tree might be a Japanese Maple.

    Technically this was taken today if I think about time in the US. This is a town 45 miles outside of Moscow with a very well known monestary, Sergiev Posad. It's cold and rainy. Fall is on it's way out. Most of the leaves have changed, just not any of the ones in this picture

    I think the eyes are more like an alligator lizard. They're cool! I want some in my yard!

    I have a Nikon D40x. It sells for around $660.00 including the lens. I still have a point and shoot Nikon but I love having no shutter lag, instant startup, and ability to shoot RAW that the D40x allows.

    Can you provide the link for the place that has it for that price? That's an amazing price for that body and lens. I've seen body only for around that price, as low as $599 and upwards of $700, but never the body/lens combo for $660. Great deal!
    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Here is the link to Beach Camera for the camera below. It's new, has USA warranty and includes a 2GB memory card that is probably worth $25.00 - $30.00.







    Here is the link to Butterfly Photo that sells the camera below.







    Here is a link to the camera sold on Amazon at that price. All of these sellers have excellent seller ratings. There are about ten other companies selling the camera and lens at this price.

    Thanks, those are some great deals for that camera.
    Beach and Butterfly get really mixed reviews, but Amazon is a solid performer so that's great that it can be had through them. Good for people to know where they can find it for a really good deal. It's amazing how fast prices drop over just a few months.
    Thanks for the links.

    Not taken today, but last week on our trip to Belgium. Canal was in Bruges, and windmill was along the bike path to Damme.

    Mary Ann,
    I love how the path in the windmill shot takes us right to the windmill. Great composition! However, minus points for not taking it today.

    I didn't because I wanted to spend my money on food that I could eat then and not later. I have bought dark chocolate pasta from them before. They are "regulars" at our local farmers market. You can also purchase from their website.
