Guest blogger is friend Lisa who captured this shot when she took a walk.
Power in disguise. I should have included this image along with the real Saguaro yesterday so one could compare.
Believe me, when this “cactus” is all closed up and there is not a cherry picker parked alongside, you’d drive right by a hundred times and not see the bolts or secret door!
There’s a link to photos of disguised cell phone towers
My sister sent me these photos of the fire escape outside her window. (After last weekend’s storm)
Guest blog by Shuey from Niceville, Florida. You may remember his popular guest post of the handsome Barred Owl.
I like both pairs of photographs. Majestic birds. Thanks, Shuey.
Snowy Egret or Blue Heron?
Shuey wrote Saw the Snowy Egret standing tall out on the lake by our house as I drove home, so . . . grabbed my camera and went back. Still there.
While shooting the Great Egret, the Blue Heron splashed down right in front of me. Beautiful. Just had to share them with someone.
Best wishes for the new year,
PS: Of each pair of photos, which do you like best. I would appreciate your opinion.
Fellow blogger Sylvia https://anotherday2paradise.wordpress.com/2016/01/02/wpc-circle-circles-from-around-the-world/posts gorgeous Bird photos of Egrets and Shuey’s reminded me of her bird photography.
My daughter Laura took this image, next to Columbus Architectural Salvage, Columbus, Ohio.
The title of the post, is the question she texted me.
Another shot by Laura as passenger.
We drove a total of 1000 miles from Columbus to Rockford and back.
My daughter Laura spotted this scene. We’re in Rockford, Illinois.
I was driving.
Pulled into the parking lot and she rolled down her window, took a few shots for the blog today!
Grandson Michael (10) is the guest blogger today.
He photographed Josie (puppy) and Henry the Airedales.
I like he got down on their eye level.
I found it tonight on my phone and remembered he took it Saturday night.

A week ago I posted the Marian Burros Plum Torte recipe posted by Jjbegonia and my friend Roberta baked it and sent a couple of photos. I didn’t post the following pasta recipe but sent it to a few friends.
I read this article via Business Insider Via link to http://www.slate.com/blogs/browbeat/2015/08/27/one_pan_9_minute_pasta_recipe_from_martha_stewart_living_the_backstory_and.html?wpsrc=sh_all_mob_em_top
I missed the Nine Minute Pasta recipe in Martha Stewart Living 2013 the first time around the Internet but read the above story and was intrigued.
Without making it myself, I shared it with friends I knew would enjoy reading or cooking it. Give it a test.
My friend Joanne in Florida got my email and actually got all the ingredients and not only made it, but documented it with photos.
Here’s her report- thanks J
Hi Ruth – thanks again for the recipe. I tried it last night and here are a few pictures. So easy. My pan wasn’t big enough for the pasta to lay flat so I broke the linguine in half. You do indeed have to keep hovering over it and stir while it’s cooking so that you don’t end up with a lump of linguine. When it was finished (exactly 9 minutes!), it felt a little gummy so I threw in 1/4 cup of wine and that did the trick – I guess you could also perhaps toss with a little more olive oil instead of the wine. It tasted great and I will surely make it again!
Oyster Radio from Apalachicola already posted one of the photos my guest blogger Kristin sent me earlier today. Direct from St. George Island, Florida.
This is what she saw as she looked out the window.
There was lightning and strong winds. I asked her if she could hear anything from the waterspout.
I had to go and look up waterspout as I’ve never seen one.
The National Ocean Service explains a waterspoutTo give you a better perspective, you can see their house in the picture (this is the one Oyster Radio already showed) You might remember the Century Plant from last year.
