What the Boss Likes – some random things

Here’s a set of random things I’ve been doing.

I’ve read Charles Foster’s “Being Human: Adventures in 40000 Years of Human Consciousness”.   I had seen an ad for it, and thought it looked interesting.  And it was….for a while.  He can do a nice turn of phrase but his endless worshipping of the “noble savage” that he invents from the paleolithic gets very tiresome.  He also has no clue about logical fallacies and repeats them too.  I ended up feeling that everything he wrote was entirely false, every “adventure” made up wholesale, including the supposed dinner at Oxford.    He ends up nothing more than the average woo-peddler, histrionically trying desperately claim that somehow quantum physics can be enlisted to his side of what amounts to nothing more than magic. 

Husband and I have a subscription to Scribd, and I’ve read an inordinate amount of books on it.   I do like the magazines too, but for some reason, they are almost all from Great Britain, Australia and South Africa.  However, since I have a tiny, narrow garden, the gardening magazines from Great Britain are actually far more useful to me than the ones here in the US which assume you have a quarter acre or more to plant. 

Since I am on a hiatus from a job, I’ve taken to walking every morning around the lake in a local park.  A doctor’s visit and the associated weighing in gave me a wake up call.    Oh those pounds do pack on when you aren’t looking.  Here are some photos of wildlife, and some more flower photos from the garden.

Strange ducks that I can’t find examples of anywhere

white roses
A very black iris that is a volunteer in the garden and taking forever to open
the pink rose from a few days ago now opened and blushed from the sun

      1. mostly $#)A@$&@ squirrels using it as jungle gym. It was a couple of feet tall when I got it, thanks you mentioning your camellias on your blog some years ago. Then the squirrels broke off one branch, of course the ones with lovely red blooms. After that, the leaves never looked quite right, being far yellower than they should have been so I tried some fertilizer for acid loving plants. That seemed to have perked it up a bit but then the squirrels broke the branch with the leaves on it. It appears quite dead now. I don’t know if it might try again or just give up completely. Of course, it was something that I really wanted. The mock orange bush I have is going berserk, though it has no scent at all. Sigh.
