    I spent the 4th with my girlfriend, reading up on recently purchased orchids, walking the dog (and seeing an indigo bunting!) and eventually going to see farenheit 9/11.

    Has anyone else here seen that movie? It's kind of scary, especially the part about Saudi influence over president Bush. It seems to present information fairly well.

    And, when I got on to post about it on another forum, I found this article posted... about Bush scaling back the endangered species act. I can't believe how much he's damaged conservation efforts.

    I am sick with a summer flu and worrying about PAK who is a bit under the weather too. Spent most of the day in bed (which is why I am posting at 5 am here). Ugh. Valerie cooked supper outside on the grill, and I did stagger outside to see the fireworks which I can see from my yard.

    Oh come now, we all wanna see how the world ends after all don't we? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/laugh.gif[/img]
    The way things are going, maybe in another 4 years the only species left on the whole planet will be the roaches!

    Before the earth is a crusty black sphere I decided I should go visit my favorite pond, so on July 4th I took a trip to the Spring Peeper (chorus frog) Meadow. I just finished the "article" for my website so here's the link, there's lots of botanical pics but no CPs that I found on this trip. Quite a few Aroids though!

    I hope someone finds it interesting!

    I spent the the day blowing my fingers off. My aunt hired me to shoot fireworks from 8:45 to 10:15. Then I bought some Blackcats at a firework stand that was open until midnight. On the 5th the ants were having a real hard time. Every mound I found got blown up. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    Working. It was a busy day. I finally left shift after 16.5 hours and arrived home with the fireworks just in time to light them off with my children.

    I spent a great weekend up in Lake Tahoe. It was mostly relaxing, but we played golf, caught a bunch of trout in Donner Lake, which we then put in the smoker. MMMMM Smoked trout!

    We also went wakeboarding, and walked the dogs a lot. A great time was had by all. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] Oddly enough, we were all too tired to fight traffic and watch the fireworks. And it's too dangerous up there to light your own, so we watched some on TV. LOL!

    I went with my grandparents to my great uncle Philip's house for their 4th of July picnic and reunion, then we stayed to watch the fireworks. Y'all shoulda heard it!! I'm used to it in Florida, but at Phil's there are two parallel mountain ranges (which are two of the highest points in Massachusetts), and when each of the fireworks made the exploding BOOM noise, it ricochetted between the two ranges, making an eeire, wind-like, airy noise towards the end of the echoing... it was weird!
