Backyard Snakes

2016-05-24 04:18 PM

Beautiful! Snakes have been having a hard time lately so it's nice to see some healthy specimens. Rex, gopher snakes actually mimic rattlesnakes for self-protection. Not only do they appear superficially similar, but when agitated they will coil, hiss, strike aggressively and vibrate their tails. If the tail is in dry leaves it sounds like a rattlesnake's warning. I'm very experienced, but this behavior will sometimes make me hesitate!

Would all of this distrust and anger at inequality be at this level if even some, not all, of Obama's programs to help the middle class, infrastructure and small business owners were passed instead of the single purpose (no to any Obama policies) obstructionism by the republican Congress. It's obvious why the extreme right have used race, gender, and anti-immigration biases to divide the country but do you feel better for it. It's a trap that has come back to hurt America instead of strengthen it. Now both parties are trying to have a "revolution" that is based on fears (Sanders against big corp. 1 percenters, trade agreements, and Trump against "the others"who are out there to kill us) when neither will set us back on a stable path. Sanders or Trump have not been properly vetted and Clinton has been in politics for so long that she gets hit from all directions. I'm for Clinton and thankful for her record to help the middle class, the disadvantaged, and the economy. I'm voting for her because at least she will follow the basic principles of the Democratic Party. Yes, major reforms are needed and thanks to Bernie we're heading in a more progressive agenda but I know that Clinton will have a measured process to get there not a revolution! We already have a great country, we need to work together to make it better, not allow Trumpism to divide us. I'm tired of all this hate, thank God we've had an inspirational leader to project a new world order these past 8 years.

383- We are not operating under a capitalist system so please do not deride capitalism. You state that welfare towards corporations is greater than the 99%. That is not capitalism. You state that walmart subsidizes using welfare, again not capitalism. Corporations are not even capitalism. Under a capitalistic society, if a company lost money it would be on the owners or shareholders. We are operating under a corporate socialist system right now. Wall streets gains are primarily due to this corporate socialism and quantitative easing that has been done by the fed. True laissez-faire capitalism has nothing to do with what you are deriding.

The polls show that the people no longer trust the political parties. Both the Democrat and the Republican parties do a great job of enacting legislation that helps their donors (and themselves) but hurts the middle class. The proof of this is the income gap that has developed over the last 30 years.

Brought on by global trade treaties and massive immigration the income gap has the middle class struggling to stay middle class - while still funding the benefits for the very immigrants that will underbid their wages.

The Democrat and the Republican parties are nothing more than street gangs with their foot on the neck of the American people.

This is where some of our CERT (Community Emergency Response Team) training took place. I don't remember much of my training, but I do know you're supposed to shout out to people in the "burning building" and determine if there is anyone there in need, before you go rushing into the flames.

We also practiced triage (sorting out urgency of wounds) in that compound. I got a few extra points by managing to wander off undetected. One of the first rules of triage is to make sure you've got the dazed and wounded rounded up.

I don't get it either, Flicka. People gripe when a news event isn't covered by the media, but then they whine when it is. John Ball, who was the best city editor the News-Press ever had, used to say that if people heard a siren or witnessed a fender-bender, it was a news event to them. And he was right. Since the present-day News-Press pretty much sifts all the "minor" events out of its pages these days, it's up to Edhat and Noozhawk to take up the slack, so we can at least find out what's going on in our community.

334P - nope that was not the implication at all.

What rocked this country's financial system was the triple whammy of $6 trillion for unnecessary wars, the Wall Street implosion where the wealth of the country decreased by billions of dollars, and the fact that the country was losing 800,000 jobs a month at the end of 2008. All of this was unnecessary as the country was in far better economic position in 2000. Furthermore, the continuing "trickle-down" (that does not) capitalist system that we have has ensured that most of the recovery since then has gone to the top 1%.

We have far more welfare toward corporations than we do to the 99%. Oil subsidies that are a waste; the fact that one of the richest corporations in the world, WalMart, pays their employees so badly that they themselves encourage their employees to make use of every welfare program possible including food stamps, with the taxpayer paying for these program to the tune of billions of dollars.

There should be NO corporations that rely on welfare programs for their employees - especially those that are rich enough to pay a decent wage. And they should be paying their fair share of taxes. (Btw, the only tax returns that were released by Trump show that he paid zero income tax.)

Here is a diagram about trickle-down economics.

22P - Trump's brashness/vulgarity is hardly comparable or 'the same kind of thing'; nor do we have fewer worries or more disposable income as your comment about lower taxes seems to imply. Printing all the money needed to 'continue on another day' and importing more votes (etc.) to expand the system along with the debt aren't exactly solutions either. But maybe we're not talking about America anymore?

Thanks 333, for pointing out that Free Speech doesn't mean you get to say whatever you want while no one else gets to respond.

Free Speech means you are free to speak without risk of going to jail, or getting disappeared, or getting hung or shot by your government.

Freedom of Speech wasn't meant to and certainly doesn't guarantee you an easy time of it with your peers, or politeness, or sympathy, or good grammar, or thoughtful response, or rational argument. Thomas Jefferson, 1791: "I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty, than those attending too small a degree of it."

If you keep your property cleared according to recommendations the fire fighters will make an effort to save your home, if possible. If property isn't cleared they put themselves in danger. A friend cleared his property but also paid to have his neighbor's cleared where it was near his home (the owner wouldn't clear his land). The firemen apparently went to the cleared place (it was obvious they had been there) and his home was intact, detached garage burned. All his close neighbors were burned out. Jesusita Fire

If you google "squid eggs," there's a fascinating article and video dated 2015 of a car-sized squid egg sac off the coast of Turkey. It's from www.Deep Sea News. Since the sac is nearly invisible, they suggest that these sacs may be in other oceans too but are never seen. This makes me wonder about your find on our coast this week because we were out on the Condor Express on Sunday and witnessed one of the largest school of dolphins (estimated 2,000) feeding on what the captain said was probably anchovies. It makes me wonder if they could have been squid eggs or recently hatched eggs instead of anchovies. The sight of so many Common dolphins was truly amazing! The water for at least a quarter mile all the way around us looked like fast boiling water in a pot, with thousands of feeding dolphins accelerating through the waves everywhere.

Samy's SHOULD be able to do it in principle (disposable just contain 35mm film which Samy's does process). They are probably a little cheaper. But my experience with them is they only process film a limited number of times per week. The last time I took a roll in for processing, they told me it would take at least 5 days. Color Services, on the other hand, could get me my prints the next day.

The hostility and vulgarity of the message may show why Trump ('America First') is supported by so many so very tired of being shouted down and strong-armed into silence and bullied into paying and paying -- for more loss to themselves and their country.

322- Free speech is only free from government prosecution. Does not apply in internet forums or in conversations with others.

323- You are right about greed destroying the American dream. The government should not be so greedy in taking the majority of our money by force and spending it (poorly) on what they see fit.

Yes, another vote for Color Services. They process film a few nights per week. Depending on what day you take it in, you either can get it back the next day or, worst case, 2-3 days later. As pointed out by others, CVS, Walgreen's, Costco all got out of the film processing business in recent years.

Well said 303... I feel for our youngsters. Greed has all but destroyed the American Dream we all once enjoyed. They too deserve to live in a world that's affordable, instead of constantly struggling to earn enough to pay for a roof over their heads, eat, get health care, learn a trade.... like we had it when we were young - before the greedy decided to become exceedingly wealthy the way too easy way by profiteering off our basic necessities.

I don't like Hillary Clinton and I distrust her words. I don't like her and her husbands profiteering. But the alternative is Trump, an arrogant, egocentric, obnoxious jerk and braggart. He rants against an "establishment" of politicians he has contributed to and supported for decades. His followers are apparently so blinded by anger and frustration at the status quo they think that if he were elected he would go to Washington and hurl childish insults to effect change. He has not articulated a single express and intelligent policy, only trite slogans and "feel-good" clich├ęs. More importantly he knows little about very important international policies for the safety and welfare of America, and is dangerous, erratic, lacks an iota of diplomacy and will guarantee more domestic deadlock with Congress. In short he is no different than many of the double-talking political hacks he is always ranting against.

Had it been on the right side, it may have been removed sooner. I don't care for Trump at all, and I don't care for graffiti. But at least this person got their feelings out without hurting anyone.

289 i beg to differ, i am a teacher and i know a LOT of young people, and not all of them supporting Sanders. They are very informed, angry at the prospect of paying off student loans until they are middle aged, the plight of the middle class (their parents) and keenly aware that both parties are imploding and the divide between the rich and the not-rich widening and which party creates that divide. They are also a voting block with clout so be nice and not so cynical about young people today. They are going to make a huge difference in this election, and it's true, you may not like it. But believe me, their fists are in the air for a BIG reason. They are and have been listening since before they could vote.

I really wish that whomever is charge would just cement the SB/Goleta highways and be done with it. Carp, Santa Maria, Ventura, Oxnard, Camarillo all have large segments of cemented highway... why can't we? Sure it would cost a ton of money up front, but isn't it worth it if we don't need to re-pave our highways every 3-4 years at tune of $10 million? (And that's just for a small portion). Cement lasts a very long time.

Most of these kids on the liberal bandwagon don't even know why their fist is in the air. Just that it's for a good cause because the media has told them so. I'm sad my boys are entering adulthood during these times. Luckily, their heads are on straight, by choice.

That is, some people love America, but not half of its people, because they cannot abide democracy where people can have different opinions than them.
