Dragging Along…


 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I am very excited about this new work in progress!

I am dragging along today.  The virus I have is not that bad.  No fever.  Just very tired with some congestion.  I am surprised that my dental hygienist is willing to see me tomorrow afternoon.  I called to see if she would rather I come when I am well but she said it was okay.  

 

I am still working away.  It takes a lot to get me down.  I am close to finishing my latest painting!  I will have it here soon!

I have had a hard time getting to my blog today.  I think I am coming down with a cold and am not moving very fast.  I did get to paint but it was hard standing up.  I think I will get this done and take it easy for the rest of the evening.

Cheers!  Stay Well!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have been talking about the barrage of emails we get every day.  Emails are sort of like eggs.  Some people send stringy ones.  They email you over and over again in the same day.  They can’t seem to wait for an answer.  Some people send hard boiled ones.  These are ones that are so loaded with information that it looks like they have been cooking their thoughts for a long time.

Clyde and I like the over easy ones.  These are rather short emails from people that don’t expect you to answer in ten minutes or even the same day.  I have one correspondent that never answers right away.  Sometimes he answers in a day or so and sometimes it is a week.  I never worry about those kind of emails.  Too many hard boiled ones today.  I will get to them tomorrow.

 

 

Don’t forget about The Blue Ridge Discovery Center that Clyde works closely with to promote this beautiful mountain region!

Thursday is now Youtube Day!


 

I have decided to get back into making Youtubes.  Since I am an amateur pianist I was using my own music but I don’t have time for that so I am adding selections on Youtube.  There are so many beautiful pieces to choose from and I am looking forward to showing more and more of my work in that format!  Here is one of my older ones that I think turned out very well!

Anybody know what I am doing wrong?  In earlier posts I have copied the code and the Youtube shows up.  Why am I only getting the code now?

 

Up and Running or is it Sitting?


Lots to do on the computer but I will get out of this chair soon and work standing up.  If we move I hope we can set up our computer so we have to stand up.

What a Great Party!


August 2nd we celebrated my mother’s 92nd Birthday and it was great!  She is having some health problems which is to be expected but she didn’t leave to rest.  I think the party would have gone on and on but most of the relatives had a long way to travel.

Such a great group!  We talked and laughed and had so much fun!

Staunton Virginia Ghost Story

 

I am still finding news ghost stories.  Here is a Staunton, Virginia spooky tale!

 

The Bell Grae Inn Ghost Story

 

This Inn is haunted by Mrs. Bagsby since the 1800’s. She unlocks door and play other tricks. It has been reported that she has caused the Inn’s hot water supply to bypass a guest that she does not like.

The Inn claims guests can experience this ghost if they stay in Room 7!  I thought 7 was a lucky number.  Not in this case!

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I wanted to be sure to announce The 40th Annual Mount Rogers Naturalist Rally that starts today!  What a great opportunity to learn about this wonderful mountain region and gain insight to ways to preserve the wildlife and natural beauty of this region I have happily spent my adult life in!

I cannot imagine living anywhere else and I never tire of painting the incredible atmospheric effects of The New River Valley and the surrounding areas!

Please come out and have a great time!

 

The 40th Annual Mount Rogers Naturalist Rally

This BRDC signature event highlights the crown jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia.  The Mount Rogers area, which includes Virginia’s three tallest peaks, has long fascinated scholars and explorers.  Not only is there a wide variation in altitude, there are many different ecosystems and mini-ecosystems within a short drive or hike of each other.

The 2014 Rally will be May 9 & 10.

Friday Night Speaker –  Nancy Lee Adamson PhD, Pollinator Conservation Specialist – East Region, The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. An Introduction to Native Bees and Other “Beneficial” Arthropods of the Mid-Atlantic – learn about common native bees we can support by protecting and planting pollinator habitat. The program will highlight nesting habits of some of the 500 species of native bees in Virginia, as well as other pollinators, predators, and parasitoids that benefit from pollinator habitat.

Friday night entertainment – Ronald and Ellie Kirby will be bringing in the evening with some traditional old time tunes.

DOOR PRIZE! – David Richert has offered a free afternoon consultation on forest management as the friday night door prize.
