Crab Eye Week ~ Wednesday Northern Kelp Crab are ubiquitous here in Puget Sound. They take on different coloration but are not quick change artists like octopus. Click on the pictures for close ups of the eyes. read more

Crab Eye Week ~ Tuesday 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, April 26, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Crab Eye Week ~ Tuesday Not exactly the same as Discovery Channel's shark week. Not even close. I can't find my video footage of the great white crab leaping out of the water to snatch a seagull mid-flight. Come to think of it, I don't have footage of a great white crab. But I do have a lot of pictures of crab ... read more

Today someone is cooking here 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, April 25, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Today someone is cooking here And it will be good food too! I know from experience. I've forgotten her name but she is Martin's mother in law and she is a great cook. Their kitchen/dinning room is not just a separate room but a separated structure altogether. She cooks over an open fire and somehow most of the smoke ... read more

Up the down staircase

Masters of Gravity 

Posted by Pastor Ron Saturday, April 23, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Masters of Gravity Seagulls are ubiquitous around here. But unlike other things that vanish from view by virtue of mundane omnipresence, seagulls seem determined not to let that happen. If their incessant pestering isn't enough to get your attention (learned in their youth by pestering their parents) then ... read more

Thanks, but I'll pass on the duck soup 

Posted by Pastor Ron Friday, April 22, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Thanks, but I'll pass on the duck soup I'm thinking seagull might not be all that great either. But really now, what do we know about the food we eat? Especially the critters. Just what are they feeding those chickens that makes them able to talk, drive cars and get plumped? And what does 'always natural ~ always fresh' ... read more

That looks good enough to eat! 

Posted by Pastor Ron Thursday, April 21, 2011 7:00:00 AM
That looks good enough to eat! But don't... ever! First of all the name is somewhat off-putting: Skunk Cabbage. It gets this lovely name because it stinks like an alarmed skunk. Now if that is the taste you are after just find some road kill and leave the Skunk Cabbage alone. More on why in just a bite. <not a... read more

Gomer ~ a story of redemption 

Posted by Pastor Ron Wednesday, April 20, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Gomer ~ a story of redemption For years I've been praying for this little girl ~ now a beautiful young woman with a remarkable gift. I've been praying for her husband and children too. And her parents and her sisters. And all of the other families that have been a part of Machias and/or Contenders and are out... read more

Sour grapes! 

Posted by Pastor Ron Tuesday, April 19, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Sour grapes! There is an old proverb that goes like this: 'The fathers have eaten sour grapes and the children's teeth are set on edge.' It parallels the notion that 'It's my parents fault... blame them for the way I am.' Certainly our parents have a profound effect on who we are and how we... read more

Playing with miniatures 

Posted by Pastor Ron Monday, April 18, 2011 7:00:00 AM
Playing with miniatures A toy tractor, miniature wheel barrow and real dirt are easy to find. Harder would be the plastic 'pond'. So I just opted to make the miniature photographically from this: read more
