Jalvis Quotes


Hello, my name is DRUGS – I destroy homes, tear families apart, take your children, and that’s just the start. 

I’m more costly than diamonds, more costly than gold, the sorrow I bring is a sight to behold. and if you need me, remember I’m easily found, I live all around you, in schools and in town. 

I live with the rich, I live with the poor, I live down the street, and maybe next door. 

My power is awesome; try me you’ll see, but if you do, you may NEVER break free. 
Just try me once and I might let you go, but try me twice, and I’ll own your soul. 
When I possess you, you’ll steal and you’ll lie. You do what you have to just to get high. 

The crimes you’ll commit, for my narcotic charms will be worth the pleasure you’ll feel in your arms.

One-Liner Wednesday – Routine

No Facilities

Maddie likes her routine. When I travel, my part of her routine is disrupted, and she lets me know that I have to get back in the groove as soon as I return. That includes our weekend walks, even if it’s foggy with a chance of drizzle. We might be able to skip a crummy day, if we have had normal weekends for weeks on end, but after I’ve been gone for an entire weekend, she goes to where her harness and leash are hanging, and:

Yo – it’s time for our walk!

More and more often, we seem to be interrupting the early morning activity of the critters in the neighborhood as they get ready for winter.

Today’s gallery includes some local wildlife, photographed as we walked, both days!

This post is part of Linda G. Hill’s fun weekly series One-Liner Wednesday. You can follow this link…

Panorama of Niagara River

Jazzersten's HDR Blog

Near Lewiston, New York, the Niagara River comes off of Niagara Falls to Lake Ontario. It is a wide and very fast river that looks dangerous to swim and boat on to me.  There were huge currents and swirls even miles down from Niagara Falls. This image was stitched together from three photographs. Note how the shoreline is muddy and the water out in the middle is blue-green.  The green forests across the river is Canada.

As best I can tell the comment software does not allow for embedded hyperlinks. Therefore I suggest that you spell out internet addresses, as shown below. Also, the comment software does not appear to allow for file or picture attachments.

Comment #2: Structural Integrity

Approximately a year and a half ago — long before the idea of a trench was considered — the DRPT conducted a survey to do with the structural integrity of the buildings…
