… at least that is what this Cormorant was doing to keep his head out of the massive spray he created when he landed on Watson Lake this afternoon. It was a beautiful afternoon on the lake and the sunset was equally beautiful; I was busy getting the boat and trailer ready for transport so I didn’t get any shots of it, but my friend did. Just something special about being on water when it is quiet and then to have the surface ripped apart by a landing waterfowl …. And then within minutes the serenity and peace returns …

This summer, as I turned 70 years old, the new decade announced itself with a sternness I didn’t experience with my other decade birthdays.  I didn’t know how to sort out my thoughts and feelings enough to write about it.  One morning, as I walked my dogs, I got it!  My task, at 70, is to welcome 70.

While 50 and 60 treated me gently, 70 delivered the message,  “Get serious!  The end approaches!”  Get serious?  Really? What does that even mean? “Hurry up to accomplish all the things you’ve been meaning to do but haven’t!  Get crackin’ on that bucket list!”  I resist the inner pressure of that voice.  At the same time, I listen carefully in case it has something important to say.

Today’s Photo from Ted Grussing Photography: of Starships

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

By Ted Grussing

Star Trek and such … going through the photos from last Friday I found a series of Caspian Terns that I got at the shallow end of Watson Lake (SW?) The lighting was such that coupled with the late light on shore vegetation, they gave the appearance of being starships and who is to say that they aren’t … we don’t see them all the time :+) A real treat!

Two Saved by CPR in Sedona

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

logo_sedonafiredistrictSedona AZ (October 17, 2017) – In a span of a little over five hours, two lives were saved by effective Cardio Pulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). Shortly after 7 p.m. Friday night and again shortly after midnight, Sedona Fire District firefighters and paramedics were called for a pulseless person not breathing. In both cases, CPR was performed until a pulse could be restored. Paramedics call this Return of Spontaneous Circulation or ROSC for short. “The whole the goal of CPR is to return spontaneous circulation in the patient suffering cardiac arrest,” said Captain Jordan Baker, “This is no easy task and to have two saves in a matter of hours is really quite remarkable.” Read More→
