Popcorn Makes Memories When we were kids hanging out with our cousins, every once in a while my Dad or one of my aunts would make us a bag of popcorn for a treat. We might take that bag to the drive in theater (I’m dating myself, I know!) or sit on logs by the campfire and munch. When I say bag, I seriously mean bag! It was two paper grocery bags, one inside the other, and filled more than halfway to the top.
Very interesting, John; I think that we all have much to learn from native cultures, and the Aborigines certainly have much ancient knowledge to teach. I recall being enthralled by the book “Mutant Message Down Under.” Worth a read, if you have not yet done so. Thanks for sharing this with us all.

The Louisiana Purchase in 1803 by Thomas Jefferson opened the land beyond the Mississippi to expansion westward for the already crowded new country. This renewed the blood lust for native lives and lands. Jefferson believed “a republic depended on an independent, virtuous citizenry for its survival, and that independence and virtue went hand in hand with land ownership, especially the ownership of small farms.” (“Those who labor in the earth,” he wrote, “are the chosen people of God.”).
Springtime in Florida is wonderful! Bird photography is at its best this time of the year. Rookeries all over the state have lots of Mother birds nesting and the eggs are hatching daily! I was lucky enough to see the first bunch of baby egrets close to the walkway at Gatorland. It was tough grabbing this shot through branches and leaning over the railing not to fall into a lake of alligators! I call these guys Larry, More and Curly! I love the hairdos! I had no idea that baby Egrets were punkers! LOL.
