Night Flowers are Beautiful & Vibrant
 

While outside at night taking Supermoon photos, I put my camera on Night Photography and took some flowers in my neighborhood and yard.
 

I love the way the colors pop out off the picture.
 

 
 

 One drawback with night photography is that it shows up all imperfections.


Here is one of my favorite flowers.

Decorate Your House with a Theme...I love Snowmen
I am not a big collector and do not have something sitting everywhere as I feel sparse is good but during the holidays I like to decorate with a theme.

 
I go nuts over "Snowmen" so i try to find places to put them in most of the rooms of my house. I have taken some pictures to show off my snowmen and snowwomen. They are so festive and always have such cute expressions.

My Pet Flying Soon....Need Pet Carrier Recommendation
Yes, the time has come for us to let our dog Gidget go live with my daughter as it is her dog and we have been keeping her for 3 years. She has been in school and is now moving to a larger place that allows pets. I am so heartbroken but need to get her ready to fly.

So, we are doing the custody transfer in late December and decided we should buy her an approved dog carrier that the airline will allow under the seat. So we went to our local Petco in Beaumont, … (8 comments)

The 3 Most Important Steps Before Selling Your House- Q & A
Q What is the most important thing to do before listing your home.
A The answer is to De-Clutter every room, closet and cabinets.

 
a) Furniture- Put any excess furniture in storage. If you have 5 TVs in your           house, get rid of most of them and I bet some of them do not work. Put the TV          in the family room. Remove the TV’s out of the Bedrooms and make sure you     do not have extra furniture; Bed, nightstand, small dresser … (4 comments)

A Blue Moon: The Almanac Moon Rule
 
In the Maine Farmers' almanac page for August 1937, the calendar ‘Definition of a Blue Moon’ explained that occasionally "one of the four seasons would contain four full moons instead of the usual three."

 
There are seven Blue Moons in a Lunar Cycle of nineteen years and commenting that in olden times the almanac makers had much difficulty calculating the occurrence of the Blue Moon and this uncertainty gave rise to the expression 'Once in a Blue Moon.'

Do You Know Where Your Wood Comes From
 

As I was waiting to get on the freeway yesterday, a humongous truck was getting off the freeway and on the side of the wood it said "MT HOOD" and I was so excited just loooking at this huge load of lumber that had come such a far way. I grabbed my phone and got a picture just as it was passing. As I drove back to my office, I wondered where it was going? With all the trees and forests in California, someone really wanted this Mt. Hood, Oregon lumber. … (4 comments)

Bears Invading Foothill Neighborhoods

 
Recently, we are hearing more about bears walking through the backyards and knocking the trash cans, going swimming in pools, and causing a lot of damage and destruction to scared residents. Plus small pets are at risk of being hurt or worse.
 
1.     Keep your trash cans put up and covered with locking lids. Most of the bears are looking for food as it has been very dry and there is a shortage of food in the hills.
 
2.    Keep your cans cleaned out after trash pick-up. Authorities suggest using Ammonia or … (10 comments)
