If I had a shotgun... Snippets from Open Space, week of 6/22

The other day I sat in the boughs of a rather horizontal cottonwood, the only nearby source of shade in the middle of a rolling prairie, crunching a ripe apple. That was a good break. Later I saw a very yellow bumble bee land on a white larkspur, and the contrast between the white flowers and the yellow and black bumble bee was very cool.



The day before I found some fossil clamshells in a shale outcropping. I left them there, of course, but took a picture.



A few days… Continue

Question

Would you rather have the body and mind of a 20 year old for your entire adult life, but drop dead at the age of 60, or have life like it is now, where you might live to be 100, but will suffer a long, slow delcine of body and mind?

Hank lists a lot of good reasons for eating less meat, the main point being that it is a grossly inefficient use of land, water, and food resources that is hurting the global environment. We waste vast amounts of scarce fresh water by growing food to feed livestock instead of humans, and by watering those food animals… Continue

I HATE Colorado! (its flag, that is)

Something's been bothering me for quite a while, and it's this:

I'll say it -- I don't like Colorado's flag. Yes, the broad stripes of blue over white, the sun-like disk and color scheme overall are pleasing to the eye. Yet every time I see it I'm disapponted.



Honestly... A giant "C"? Colorado is home to mountains and plains, forest, prairie, desert and tundra. Wonders abound both geographical and biological. The Maroon Bells, the Front Range,… Continue
