    I've been playing around at the river near my house destroying beaver dams and relocating beavers to help in flood control. We first saw these guys in the Spring and now see them almost every day we go out. We have found what we believe to be their nest and the DNR is going to verify it in February during their survey. If it is a nest it will be the first one in this county since 1890. These pictures were taken in Gary, IN about three blocks South of I-94. I was within 30 yards of them. Not something you'd expect to see in an urban area. There are also a couple of juveniles in the area.

    There's a fine line between woodworking and insanity, I'm just not sure which side of the line I'm on!

    One of the many birds we do "NOT" have here in the Islands...I guess it's to far for them to fly. Very nice. I remember visiting Alaska and seeing them all over....the nests are so large as well.

        Great Pics - They are fun to watch. One cold winter day, we found a bunch playing on the Mississippi River. They were hitching a ride on the ice chunk and floating down river. They would then fly back and find another ride.

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...

                Not yet Jim. The corners of the baskets to appear to be drawn by hand or just a bad copy. The price might go up. Thanks Linda. For some reason I really like doing layered baskets. And my customers like buying them. Bruce read a blacklight shows glue spots. Guess what he bought me from harbor freight...
