Sparrows Enjoying Breakfast in the Cherry Blossoms
blog     22 Mar 2015 | 11:27 am
Click to view slideshow. I have been photographing the Cherry Blossoms in the Historic District of Hot Springs, Arkansas for the past five years.  Last year I discovered Sparrows mate among the beautiful blossoms Happy Spring 2014 – Sparrows Dance of Life. This year I learned they pick and eat the flowers. I was curious to know why are these birds were eating the buds and blossoms? The simple answer is that they are highly nutritious. Some experts believe the blooms have more nutritional value than buds giving flower eating birds an advantage in late winter and or early spring when food can be scarce. Love to ALL!

B.P.’s Blog – The Game of Scouting
Blog     22 Mar 2015 | 9:05 am
During his lifetime Robert Baden-Powell, founder of the worldwide Scouting movement, wrote many books and articles directed to Scouters. Each Sunday I’ll publish a selection from his writings in the hope that you’ll draw inspiration and understanding from his timeless ideas. IN the Headquarters Report of one of our Oversea branches it is stated that a large percentage of decrease in numbers of Scouts occurs in about the third month of their service in the Movement, and Scoutmasters are warned to look into their method of handling Scouting to make sure that it meets the expectation of the lads. I...

Friday Scouting Hot Finds Newsletter March , 2015
Blog     22 Mar 2015 | 2:10 am
The auction pictured to the right is kinda a head scratcher. It must be some kinda joke. I even saw Bill Topkis post last night on Facebook asking what is going on with this one. Well despite the face that there is a weird one in today's issue I'm sure you'll be pleased with some of the other picks I found in the Boy Scout category of eBay. The old Region 7 patch vest below is so stuffed with patches that they are literally hanging off of it. It's hard not to like an early 1950's vest like that. I saw...

d.light D20 – Home Solar Lighting System – Review
Blog     21 Mar 2015 | 1:20 pm
It's nice to finally see an overbuilt solar home lighting system that performs the way its meant to. d.light Design's D20 solar home lighting system has impressed me because it is built for the developing world where off the grid is the only option and where durability and functionality are what drives design. While most solar lighting that we see on the market has the quality of those solar patio lights that end up in the trash every fall, this setup is built for real-world use, making it ideal for your backwoods cabin, hot tent, lakeside boat house, or wherever you'll need...

Cherry Blossoms Glowing in the Fog
blog     21 Mar 2015 | 6:38 am
Click to view slideshow. Rain, snow, ice bombarded the forming Cherry Blossom Buds twice this year.  I was delighted to see that some buds had survived and were opening to reveal waves of pink.  As I set up my first shot I noticed a light fog rolling off the surrounding mountains to caress the delicate new blossoms.

Goodbye, Winter. Hello, Spring!

Today marks the first day of spring, and if you’re fortunate enough to have clear skies, sunshine, and blooming flowers, we bet you can’t wait to starting enjoying the outdoors.
