Multiple Hummingbirds and a Monarch Visitor

 
 
There are many native plants that bloom in the late summer into fall, such as goldenrod, asters, ironweed or sunflowers. Add such late-blooming natives to your garden, along with native milkweed on which monarchs will lay their eggs come spring, and you’ll help this butterfly and other pollinators.
 
 
 
 
Imagine you’re a monarch butterfly on a long migration to your wintering grounds and spot a backyard full of fall blooming native wildflowers! You dive down to refuel on the nectar a kind gardener cultivated. You can plant sunflowers to feed the birds during the spring, summer and fall … (6 comments)

We shared some business tips and discussed our areas. We both brought our iPads so we had them out on the table with us. The waiters/waitresses must be used to customers with their computers and tablets.

UCLA Beats USC and the Bruin Bear is Hibernating
Just Got to Brag that UCLA Won...Hooray
Last night one of the great football games was played again and for the third year in a row, UCLA won and this time it was a landslide USC 20- UCLA 38.
I went to UCR so I am always a UC follower plus I do not like that USC painted on the Bruin Bear in 'Red' paint "SC RUNS LA". What a disgrace event though the two teams always play tricks on each other. But since I am a nature lover, I was saddened that the … (4 comments)

Moments in History  for  August Including Betty Boop

August 9, 1930 – Betty Boop makes her cartoon debut in Dizzy Dishes. Betty Boop was so popular but some cities banned her like Philadelphia as being too risque so when she returned a few months later, she had lost her garter. Betty Boop merchandise is very popular still today as they sell clothing, purses, stationary, jewelry and other memorabilia with the popular wide eyed girl. Betty was known for saying Boop-Ooop-a-Doop in a sexy manner. August 3, 1936 – Jesse Owens wins the 100 meter dash, defeating Ralph Metcalfe, at the Berlin Olympics.

How Google Earth Assists Crooks to Enter Your Home

We live in such a great era where technology seems to get better and better but it is sad when crooks use this technology to further their desire of becoming rich by taking advantage of homeowners by using modern technology.
We are at risk of becoming victims of identity theft from hackers, and theft of wallets or even as simple as going through trash cans to find credit applications but now we find that a group of crooks called the "Ninja Robbers" who used Google Earth to gain information to assist them … (56 comments)

The Big Hawk on the Lamp Post
Today while driving home to Loma Linda, CA, I saw a Red Hawk on the light post. Then this tiny little bird stopped on the post. They both sat there for a minute and then the Hawk flew off. Amazingly enough, the little bird chased after the Hawk. 
 

They both flew into a huge tree and never fly out....... Not sure what to make of that. Could they be friends?
