I expect those "clearcuts" are managed forest areas that help keep the whole forest from burning down.  ;D

I have a good recipe for these things. You cook them in a pot with 4 smooth rocks.
Cook for about 3 hours on medium heat then remove the seagull and eat the rocks.
Works well for loons too!

I was deleting some links out of my favorites list when I found this one to NASA. It is a java applet for listings of times for flyovers of satellites and such. I looked up the space station and found it was going to be low in it's orbit over our place. Patty got home from night classes just in time to view it with me. Pretty impressive.

Got a shot of this rainbow last evening (5/6/03) after a storm went south of us.  



It's real hard to capture the beauty with just one small shot.

The picture doesn't do justice to the sunrises that we have been getting lately. If the mosquitos weren't so bad you could stand out and enjoy them more.

  When out mobile sawing and you see a front line like this coming it is time to fold up and head for the barn.  I am glad that my WM folds up fast.

 Another day gone, and not all of the sawing done.  The sawdust settles with the sun as the sounds of day pass to night.  I fold up my mill and head to home knowing as the sun returns so will my labor, but for now I rest my might.  One must live each day and savor the night for the Lord grants no promise to man the coming of another day.

Perry sent me his pictures from his trip to Michigan. He had a ultra cool pic of the big mac bridge. I stole it to post. ;D

Great Picture PEW!
