Well im still here , sort of,  it seems i get these very brief windows throughout the day when i can log in so id better make quick. Ive developed a stratigic method here whereby i prepare and post a post on my other defunked blog (wow its boring on that blog) and then just reblog it here when i get a window of oppertunity……so replies to comments will be scarce im afraid……i do however still get the email notifications and can reply to some of them via email…..which i shall do……hope non of you object to this method of comms…………

DAISIES  THROUGH  CONCRETE……THE EELS 

Wake up the dying, don’t wake up the dead

 Change what your saying, don’t change what you’ve said

Now that its time that I got out of bed

When I’ll walk myself down sycamore street

The sun beats down no shoes on my feet

 And I stumble on a daisy through concrete

Pink and brown babies in pink stroller cars

Know that it’s good they don’t care where they are

 They know that home doesn’t feel very far

When I’ll walk myself down sycamore street

The sun beats down no shoes on my feet

 And I stumble on a daisy through concrete

Here we go Oh yeah Thats how I like it

Airplane is flying up in the sky

 Making a pattern with the white lines

Looks like a heart or maybe a pie

When I’ll walk myself down sycamore street

The sun beats down no shoes on my feet

 And I stumble on a daisy through concrete

A daisy through concrete

draculas daughter……….

Morning all

Whilst im not into the sparkly species i really dont have too much of a problem with vampires.

I was involved in a discussion about vegetarianism an thiought a little fun would go down well

http://theflexgeneration.wordpress.com/2012/09/29/science-fiction-made-me-a-vegetarian/

here is a link to the veggy post…………………………………..

and here is the fun………….

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z2HkrWkKzZo

It was late one night when the moon shone bright
I was passing the cemetery
When a bite on the cheek left me feeling weak
That’s where I met vampire Mary

When I looked around I was flat on the ground
With a big black thing above me
“Are we gonna get wed or you’ll end up dead”
She said “now do you love me?”

Lips are blue, eyes are red
A laugh like gurgling water
But I can’t resist that passionate kiss
I’m in love with Dracula’s Daughter

Well she gave me a peck that left me a wreck
And said “it’ll settle Laddie –
And after that we go meet the old bat
You must come and see my daddy”

So we climbed a tree and I said
“Can we please pardon my intrusion?”
Well he gave me a grin and said “My, you’re thin –
You could do with a blood transfusion”

Lips are blue, eyes are red
A laugh like gurgling water
But I can’t resist that passionate kiss
I’m in love with Dracula’s Daughter

We were wed in June beneath the yellow moon
And we danced around the campfire
Said Mary to me “When the clock strikes three,
You’re a genuine Grade A vampire”

Now hear me right, if you’re out at night
Run as fast as your legs will let you
Cos if you don’t run, I’m telling you son
Mary and I will get you

Lips are blue, eyes are red
A laugh like gurgling water
But I can’t resist that passionate kiss
I’m in love with Dracula’s Daughter

Have a greatday all

i like birds……..and other optical ramblings….

Morning all

Ok so lets start with the optical ramblings

I eventualy have aquired myself a bigger lens.

This is a sigma 150-500 zoom lens……..but quite frankly up till now im not really all that impressed with the pictures ive taken.It is the lower end of the price range and the lens is rather heavy and very slow but its early days and i am slowly learning how to use it within its limitations.Very hard to keep this thing still and the depth of field is generally very narrow which means it takes plenty of patience to take in focus pictures of my particular subject matter which be very small birds which never keep still…..

I am really spoilt when it come to optical devices and these are the reason why……

I inherited these from my dad and he had them ever since i can remember so i reason that they were manufactured in the late 60s early 70s. These binoculars are absolulty first class,superb,fantastic,tremendous.The image quality is out of this world.I have been looking at binos latly as i wish to buy a smaller pair for hiking but nothing ive looked at compares to these soviet glasses.Infact everything ive seen is utter crap in comparison.Even my new lense is crap in comparison as are all most all of my lenses. So people just know that the stuff you are buying in your local shopping malls are shite.

I have been lead to believe that soviet technology was generally inferior to western technology but these are a definite exception to that rule, if  there is such a rule.

Ok now to the birds

This guy is building a nest in the yukka in my front garden

I spent days watching and taking pics of this guy whilst on honeymoon.From sunup to sun down he never stops and never keeps still for more that half a second.He must be really exhausted when he goes to bed at night. He is very small and very difficult to take pictures of.

Actually there were two of them and they had a nest in a clump of grass growing in the river. This is as close as i could get and i had to sit in the freezing cold mountain stream freezing my ass and my bollocks off for over an hour  to get this picture.I think it was more or less worth the effort.

Ok i know tis is a really crap picture but im really pleased that i saw this guy, very small, shy, skitish,and secretive. I just could not pin him down or get close enough and this picture was a hasty snap taken without any thought at all. Just after i took this he dived into the stream,quick as lightning and fley of with something in his beak.He is really super beautiful through the binoculars.

And here are just a few random pics of beautiful things i saw on my honeymoon.

 

This is apparently fossilized moss that is located on the roof of the sudwala caves….

and i found this perfect specemin in the same forest

so…..here it is………I LIKE BIRDS

http://www.metrolyrics.com/i-like-birds-lyrics-eels.html

 

  •  I can’t look at the rocket launch
  • The trophy wives of the astronauts
  • And I won’t listen to their words
  • ‘Cause I like birds
  • I don’t care for walking downtown
  • Crazy auto-car gonna mow me down
  • Look at all the people like cows in a herd
  • Well, I like birds
  • If you’re small and on a search
  • I’ve got a feeder for you to perch on
  • I can’t stand in line at the store
  • The mean little people are such a bore
  • But it’s alright if you act like a turd
  • ‘Cause I like birds
  • If you’re small and on a search
  • I’ve got a feeder for you to perch on
