    Living in the Southwest for most of my life, Iíve seen just how many people go to Colorado to hunt, fish, ski, hike, camp and sight see. Combined together, these activities generate millions of dollars for businesses as well as the state government. Yet, the controlling Democrats are willing to lose a large portion of that revenue and place many businesses in jeopardy, just to push Obamaís anti-gun policies. A couple of major businesses are already looking to relocate out of the state because of the recently passed and newly proposed anti-gun laws. Read more:

  • Lansing-area residents say wolf-like creature prowls neighborhood

    LANSING, MI -- There's something very, very strange in these old woods. That's what some neighbors in the area of St. Joseph Highway and Upton Road in Delta Township say, at least. Brad Wallen has encountered what he described as a wolf-like creature six times in the past three months, and as recently as Wednesday when it darted through his backyard. He said he's never seen anything like it before. "I'm guessing this thing is between 65 and 80 pounds," he said. "It's not afraid of humans. It walks right out into the yard and lays down." Wallen said the...

    I just found out there is a bunny living by the garage door, under the cement stoop. I put some small carrots there. He smelled them but didn't eat them. He is eating the dandelions (lots of those around) Should I try to feed him? What would I give him that would not attract unwelcome critters?

    LA Times ^ | 12/24/09
    West Hollywood is moving toward banning outdoor smoking and has directed city staff members to draft an ordinance that would prohibit such activity in outdoor areas of dining establishments. But business owners and those from West Hollywood's bustling nightclub industry say the regulation would hurt the local economy. Read more in the WeHo News: Following in the regionís wake, Mayor Abbe Land, the co-executive director of the Saban Free Clinic and a long-time health advocate, joined with constitutional law professor Mayor Pro Tem John Heilman in a resolution to direct the city attorney to draft a ban on smoking in...

    Last Sunday I rode up to the Agriculture Center, to see the Spring plant show. I parked, got halfway across the lot, and realized I was about to hit the pavement. It looks like I'm going to get stuck to an oxygen hose again. I may also have to give up this cave, and move in with the kids. I'm welcome over there, but that's only because they ain't lived with me, recently, since I reached full curmudgeon status. The time to plan has come, anyway. I'll still have to take some pictures, no matter what!

    While this new world of corporate governance/ lobbyists/ privatization of the commons etc; seems difficult to understand (disguised as it is with buzz words Ė and meaningless jibberish), itís really not as complex as one might think. After you learn how to ignore the superficial banalities, and get to the meat (if there is any) of the message being given. Most times youíll hear just fluff and nutter talk Ė sounds important but isnít. While we naturally focus upon local issues and concerns such as community development, roads, tons of garbage, forest access, tourism, sportsmenís rights, lack of snow, no...
  • Solution for Deer Flies

    07/28/2006 4:46:26 PM PDT · by SamAdams76 · 13 replies · 416+ views
    Deer flies are the flies that buzz around your head when you go walking in or near the woods during the summertime (especially late June ot early August). These things make a walk in the woods miserable as they constantly dive-bomb your head - and if given a chance - will suck a copious amount of blood out of you by ripping open your skin with their jaws. Swatting these flies does not good. They just keep coming and coming. For several years now, I have been buying the TRED-NOT deer fly strips. You put the strips on the...
  • I need to build a Manger for my front yard...(vanity)

    FReepers of many talents, *Merry Christmas!* That said, I need help in the idea department. I have in my garage, an outdoor Nativity set of 11 pieces. Baby Jesus, Mary, Joseph, an Angel, 3 Wise Men, a shepherd boy, a donkey, a cow, and a lamb or two. At present I do not have a Manger. Displaying the figures without a Manger seems so incomplete to me. Therefore, I want to build a Manger for my front yard; one that could be broken down or easily stored during the spring, summer and fall. I thought the Internet would have some...
  • AP: San Francisco pioneers far-reaching outdoor smoking ban

    SAN FRANCISCO - From Union Square and the local zoo to Golden Gate Park and the grounds of the stadium where the hometown 49ers play, smokers in this tourism-driven city will soon find fewer places to indulge their habits. An expansive smoking ban approved by San Francisco supervisors Tuesday prohibits lighting up in all city-owned parks, public plazas and sports facilities except golf courses. At least 11 other California cities and a handful of jurisdictions in other states have enacted curbs on outdoor tobacco use, but anti-smoking advocates say none is as far-reaching as San Francisco's. "San Francisco has been...
