All I want is cold clean water teeming with wild and native fish.

Fishing in July

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.
Henry David Thoreau
The reson I go fishing is not always the fish.
Easy to say when you didn't catch any fish.

Reeves's Pheasant

This Reeves's Pheasant has made his home in our neighborhood. He was in my front yard on Friday 24 Feb 2012. The neighbors call him Bob or Bob White.

The Reeves's Pheasant is endemic to evergreen forests of central and eastern China. Where introduced they also inhabit farmland close to woodlands. There tail grows a foot for every year they are alive.
They have been introduced for sport and ornamental purposes to Hawaii, USA, Czech Republic, France and the UK. In the latter three countries they have built up small breeding populations, and are still released on a small scale for shooting, often alongside Common Pheasants.
Due to ongoing habitat loss, and overhunting for food and its tail plumes, the Reeves's Pheasant is evaluated as Vulnerable on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species. There are thought to be only around 2000 birds remaining in the wild.

Þorri, one of the Old Icelandic months, begins on a Friday, between the 19th and the 25th of January, and ends on a Saturday between the 18th and 24th of February. Therefore today (Friday, January 22, 2010) is the first of the old month of Þorri. Þorrablót traditionally takes place anytime during the month of Þorri. Þorrablót, is a standard part of Icelandic social calendars, and has even been exported to many countries.
Today Þorrablót are common events among Icelanders everywhere and can be anything from an informal dinner with friends and family to large organized events with stage performances and an after-dinner dance. These large Þorrablót are usually arranged by membership associations, associations of Icelanders living abroad, and as regional festivals in the countryside.
