ABC Wed. - "X" = X-Tra Special


This is one of my plants in my yard. I love the looks of this plant (forgot the name), but it's nice in the summer and I thought it looked X-tra special with the snow on it.

X-tra special
X-tra extraordinary

Camera Critters - One House and Lots of Lights

Here's one house with lots of light decorations. I was driving around just to see lights one night and spotted this one on a side road in Boalsburg. Boalsburg is about a 15 minute drive from Bellefonte. This is a must see if you go looking at lights. I can't imagine their electric bill.

I loved this one. A horse and cariage.

A few photos I snapped of idividuals, a working carousel...

...and a penquin with the igloo.

This Navity scene was off to the right of this house.
And, just a few more pictures...You can't take just one photo of this house. There's alot going on.

ABC Wed. "U" = Unique and Unbelievable!

Today is ABC Wed. and the letter "U".

Here's a couple of unique newspaper dispensers. I found these in Altoona mall. One is a farm and the other one is Frankenstein. If you click on the photo to enlarge you can see a better view and Frankenstein has shoes on too.


Here's another photo I took with the letter U...Unbelievable! This past Saturday we woke up to some snow. I took this photo standing in my yard looking out into the neighborhood. It was more unbelievable when it snowed in October, but I'd rather spend all year in warmer weather.

Camera Critters - Skunks, Snowman and Santa

Here's a few Camera Critters for today. Today is Saturday and it's snowing outside. It should be our first snow but it isn't. It's our second snow, because our first snow was in October when it was still autumn outside.

Here's a photo of our neighbors yard with a Santa and Snowman. I really like how the bench looks in the snow.


Here's a picture of my skunks in the snow in my front yard...

I also wanted to tell you about a site I found from visiting another blog. I recently visited a blog called Cici's Corner, and she listed a place you can go to here to get your blog put into a book. I thought this was a neat idea and will have to check it out further. I don't know anything about this site yet, but will be taking a look around. Thought I'd share it with all of you.

Happy Thanksgiving! And, Ade & Melissa Cancer Dance

I just want to say Happy Thanksgiving to everyone and thought I'd post the Cancer dance that Ade & Melissa did on the show So, You Think You Can Dance. I thought we could count our blessings today and remember those people who are less fortunate in our prayers and maybe even reach out to someone. If you haven't seen this piece, it's a must see. There isn't a dry eye in the whole audience. This dance is beautiful. I posted this on both this blog and my other blog because I think everyone should see this.

ABC Wed. "S" = Snack


I made up a snack for myself. I sliced a cucumber long ways, added some tuna and mayo mix on top, then sprinkle on some dill weed and add some crushed pistachios on top. It was really good.

Sky Watch Friday - Movie Train


It was exciting for Centre County to have this train here not long ago that was brought here for Denzel Washington playing in the movie Unstoppable. It is coming out in Nov. 2010. They brought in alot of crew members, somewhere along the lines of 250 people. I didn't get to see Denzel but my son did. I can't wait to see the movie and recognize all the places we're use to going to.

Announcement! Please Read...

My computer has been down due to the phone company working on the lines. They are saying it could possibly be in and out until Thursday, so needless to say I may not be posting till then. I will try to get back to everyone once it is completely up and running and will catch up. I have to use the computer at the library for now until all is well with the phone lines.

Sky Watch Friday - Parade or Just Walking?


Another photo my grandson took when we were at the Harvestfest in Alexandria, PA. This was just people walking to get to the tents where some more crafts were but he wanted it to look like a parade coming down the street.

Camera Critters - Trying to Find a Dry Spot


Trying to find a dry spot on the porch last weekend was a bit difficult. We had about three inches of snow. My grandson even got to make a snowman out of it. I got a photo. It was interesting to take photos of the fall leaves with the snow on the ground. Too early for snow here right now but it did. This weekend it is raining really hard.

ABC Wed. - "L" = "Loop"

Another ABC Wed. and the letter "L" for "Loop". I love this metal film loop and tickets. I wish I knew where they got them but this hangs on the wall of a residence home. They have a big screen TV with these on each side. I thought it was pretty cool.

Camera Critters - Ducks


I found out the story behind these ducks roaming our development. This year was the first time I'd seen ducks roaming the neighborhood. Another neighbor said someone got these ducks when babies, raised them and then tried to let them go. He drove them about an hour away to a lake but they keep coming back no matter where he takes them. So, now they just keep visiting neighbor to neighbor. I guess they'll always come back because our neighborhood is their home. I see them about everyday. Not sure if they will leave for the winter or not.

ABC Wed. - "J" = Jaw



I had a hard time coming up with a "j" this time. My grandson took this photo with his skeleton in bed. Then it finally hit me about jaw. It would be a good one for "b" for bones but we're not on that letter.

Mellow Yellow Monday - Wall Mural


Today is Mellow Yellow and I thought I'd post this photo of a wall mural we have in one of our bedrooms. You can see the yellow lights. I got this mural about 17 years ago. Also, this month is the anniversary for those who lost their lives in the 9/11 tragedy. You can see the twin towers in the background on the mural.

Sky Watch Friday -Pittsburgh Ball Park and My Featured Sunset


This is a picture I took at the Pittsburgh, PA, ballpark a few years ago. I need to get out and take more Skywatch photos. I thought I'd post a photo further away from my home because I have a photo close to home on Sky Watch this week. Pittsburgh is about a three hour drive from Bellefonte.

My Featured Sunset Photo at Sky Watch. The photo I have featured on Skywatch is of a beautiful sunset that I took near Milesburg, only about a 10 to 15 min. drive from Bellefonte. It was one of my best sunset photos I've taken. Please check it out my photo here: http://skyley.blogspot.com/

Thanks goes out to the people who run the Skywatch site for featuring my photo this week.

ABC Wednesday - "I" = Inside



Today is ABC Wed. and the letter "I" for "inside". This hornets nest is inside the tree. Hornets can be extremely dangerous and will hunt you down. My brother threw something at a hornets nest when we were young and they came after him. They literally knocked him down to the ground. He got up and ran as fast as he could to the house. They followed him till he reached the house and hovered at the door for at least an hour before leaving. They will wait for you.

This hornet's nest is inside my sister's tree by her house. You can't get them removed anymore for free. She said the cheapest place was $175.00 to remove them. So, what they decided to do is to wait for cold weather and then burn them out.
