Think Summer!!

Remembering the flowers of summer

….. Most of them are not around yet, some hibernating as bulbs underground, others just hiding as woody plants..

This one flower stays all winter long. And it is still beautiful. All year long this beautiful whitw flower stands tall. I like the light color because it brings a natural light into the garden at night, after dark.

Bullies? Understanding Bullies?

Na, not in this life.    Let’s ‘understand’ the targets (of bullies) first!

A note on the topic of bullies and understanding them:

“It is sad to see that so many articles are favoring the bullies by first seeking to find out their reason for bullying. Society needs to come to the plate and really first handle the important task of making the  target of the bully feel safe, protected and heard.

Our society has too much emphasis on making bullies feel “heard” .

 

Let’s listen to the targets, the victims , first and  let the officials, the Deans,  the authorities  or police handle the bullies.  Most seem to forget that most targets are bullied for months or even years before the bullying comes to light . So in a case like that, the target, the victim, the target of the bully really needs to be separated from the bully and the authorities or teachers or those in control of the education systems should take their heads out of the sand and put it on hold a bit as they continue to try to “understand” the bully. I get it that yes, eventually you need to understand the why of it, but not first before putting a space, a distance between the bully and the bully’s target. The school and the officials get it right as they first begin to understand the “target” of the bully rather than trying first to understand the “bully” . There are thousands of people that have had tough lives and yet they don’t resort to bullying. So, as a society, it is not correct to assume that ‘bullies” have a ‘reason’ for bullying. There’s no reason and there are no excuses. This is just another opinion, from a different point of view” . – artfromperry .justbreathe15

In and throughout our school systems and centers there is a theme going on and around. It appears that (some) think that the solution is to understand the bully.

Imagine if you went to court with a murderer — and the victim’s family there — ,  do you think that trying to “understand” the murderer helps the victims or the targets of the murderer?

Somebody needs to come up with  better ideas on handling school and center problems.

Afternoon Turkeys!

I’d been there a number of times before but, before this I had never, ever seen turkeys there. 

For the most part, I took one of my granddaughters on the road trip to distant place to see the wildlife that lived in the area.    There ere cardinals, bluejays, woodpeckers ,chickadees, sparrows, squirrels, chipmunks, and lots of other animals in the place, in that space.   After about four or five trips there, seeing all the same wildlife, one day I decided to stay later.  This is the first time that e stayed after 4 PM.   Then late in the afternoon, there they ere.    Seven turkeys trotting out of the woods.

Here’s one.    (See picture)

You can go to the same place ten times and still see something different on the eleventh time you go there.  That’s all I’m saying.

You can stand there with your hand out.  Bring “black oil sunflower seeds”.   The birds and other animals eat out of your hand.     Don’t leave seeds on the ground and wait until all seeds are consumed.    If you leave food or seeds on the ground, you are inviting or feeding mice or other vermin that are not your beautiful birds.  Just saying.

Enjoy your stay at the wildlife sanctuary.    It is fun, educational and a wonderfully, calming experience.

Try these… Camping in the USA…

Some of the places to camp out in the USA that are safe, and or civilized are the campsites at Hither Hills State Park.   You need to reserve at least nine months in advance for these camping spaces.  Yes, they are beautiful!  You can camp out less than 20 feet from the ocean, and there are tables, concrete pads under the picnic tables, a camp store that has everything you need, a tiny playground, outdoor showers and the store even sells some clothing.      

There’s Hecksher State Park at the end of Long Island there and that’s okay .  Specialty here?   If you want to see deer, this is the place.   Hecksher is nicknamed the “home of the white-tailed deer’.    MOSQUITOES!    Don’t even think of camping out here unless you bring the spray or wipe-on insect repellent.   My first trip there, within minutes, I had bites all over both arms.  

Once in a  while, hardly ever lol, you can set up a day-tent in some of the other parks that do not have camping.    But check with the park people first. 

I’ve camped out in Pennsylvania state parks — love those for the wilderness-type camping.   And yes, watch out for bears.     If you go there, check in with the camp hostess and they ill give you the latest news on if there are bears around or not .

YES! wear something ORANGE!   In some Pennsylvania state parks they permit hunting, and you don’t want to be mistaken for a bear or whatever.        

The feature-picture was taken either at Captree State Park or at Hither Hills State Park. 

Fishing?    Captree is the place.    You can also fish at  the beach (check regulations) wildood State Park in Long Island, New York, USA.

San Sebastian, Puerto Rico and Adventures

If I ever am going to go off the mainland of the USA, it probably would be to San Sebastian, Puerto Rico. 

I’ve never been there, though I’ve been invited there many times.     Some of my grandkids have gone there for the summer, or to visit for smaller visits.  And the adventures that I heard of were wonderful.  And the pictures are beautiful!

 

TRAVELING on ADVENTURES:

Yet, most likely, I will not see that in person.     I’m one of those who uses walking, biking, training, or busing when it comes to adventures.   And so many times, I have used the car on adventures.  Been to South Carolina by bus, and North Carolina by train (from South Carolina), and to DC by Amtrak, and to other states by automobile.   Yes, I love boats.  I’ve taken the “C-Line” around Manhattan, and the Ferry from Brooklyn, to Manhattan, NYS, USA.   And yes, I’ve  been in a kayak, been on a paddleboat, and even been in a rowboat.

The Recipe..

From the book, COMFORT FOODS, I tried just one recipe.  I forgot what the official title of the recipe was but basically it was for the “perfect rice”. 

Being a great rice lover, this recipe attracted my attention.       I looked it and and thought, “how hard can this be, making rice from a recipe”?     Smiles ,  yes, I’ve cooked rice before this.  I’ve made soggy rice, and sticky rice, and undercooked rice and yes, even over-cooked rice.    And yet, this is a new one – perfect rice.

I tried the recipe.  (I followed instructions – a first)  .  And wow.  Yes this was the perfect rice.

Pictures some other time.

Part Two * To The Innocent Turpins …

Turpin Holidays….

Ahh, once the heroine escaped and got help for the rest of the family, slowly, very slowly, probably almost microscopically slowly, things began to change for the better.     Why slowly?  The average person might think  that the change was instant.    After all, being taken, escaping, getting away from the absurd-abusers, must give one instant change right?  Yes, the change was instant.       Their living quarters, arrangements changed, the food that they were offered changed, and lots of other things changed —

    ..though, not all changes would be considered ‘for the better’ to the  still-captive Turpin kids.     After all, weren’t they still prisoners?  Yes.
