I agree 100%

Glenn Pendlay

Why? Well it started in Guatemala last week. I was eating in the weightlifting chow hall with Donny Shankle and thinking about the food. The meal that day included a sort of salad. Tasted like it had some kale in it, had some green beans, some corn, lettuce, and bits of bacon. There were diced up potatoes, cooked with onions. Diced up carrots that most people seemed to be mixing up with the potatoes and onions. And chicken. Not fried chicken, just chicken. It was representative of most of the meals, mostly vegetables and meat, some potatoes or rice. Nothing fancy. I remarked to Donny that it would be hard to overeat and get fat on such food. Not that it wasn’t good, it was tasty enough, but it was nothing you would want to go on eating once your hunger had been satisfied. And it wasn’t calorie dense, mostly…

The picture of your life

If all the good youv’e ever done
    Were painted on a wall,
Into a picture framed in gold,
    Would it be Large or small?
If every smile appeared in blue
     Depicted as the sky,
And clouds of black were painted on
    Each time you told a lie–
If trees of green would show each time
    You gave a helping hand,
How much would your backgroud show?
    How dense would be the stand?
And if each act of kindliness
    Would mean a shining ray
Of sunlight, on your work of art,
    Would it be light as day?
Or would your picture look like night
     With skies more black than blue,
And shadows dark, instead of trees?
      It all depends on you.
For every mam must paint his own
      And all the world will see
It hanging in the halls of bliss
      For all eternity.

LAKE CALHOUN

Anyone who lives near Twin cities know that Lake Calhoun is a must visit park during summer. Its such a great place just to sit and relax, swim, kayak, jet ski, take your pets for a walk,  bbq or fish. what i love most about this park is the amount of people that come by, i love the crowd its a good place for people watching. You can sit for days an watch people go up and down and in the water.

 

The people in this boat were five (i think college students) and as they have sailed away between the beer they were having  and to many people on the small boat factor; they managed to tip their boat. it was very hilarious, me and my friends  took a bet how far they would sale be for they tipped andthey mannaged to get in the middle of the lake before their show down lol.

The golden retriever in this pic sure stole the show that day he was the most adorable dogs of all. he was very playful and entertaining

I named this pic the poster couple i think its the most gourguse pic i took by far of random people


This is very interesting ….clearly this are hyenas that are domesticated as im pretty sure their wild side still lingers daily.My first encounter with hyenas was as a child in a place where I grew up in Africa ; in the suburb of the capital city of Ethiopia (Gulelae). Although   Hyenas are wild, they were part of well established middle class neighbourhoods  in my neck of the woods. They were common( part of suburb ecosystem), as it’ll be common to have seen  a fox, python or a bear depending on what type of environment you live in here in the US. Actually, we use to have a dog that would escape the gated house and during sun rise (that’s when the hyenas were most active at list in my neighborhood) and fight and return home with scratches  and bleeding nose. I remember there howls and human like laughs that was very creepy. I belive with all the infrastructure going on with highway renovation and the capital  city’s swelling population they no longer exist in my neighborhood ( its been 11 years since I have lived there n the change is very rapid) but there is still a chance to catch the wild hyenas in another region if your ever in Ethiopia. I have seen wild hyena feeding showman in a region known as Harer. its such a trilling experians interacting with wild beasts. The hyenas in these post  look different from those ive seen back in Harer,ethiopia region. Probably diffrent gene pool but it was an amazing experience. If you are brave enough they even let you feed them. I never have imagined hyenas as majestic animals, they are always depicted as the clumsy and overall an attractive character of the safari (as depicted in the Lion king). However, this article as well as my childhood encounters shows how much character and personality hyenas have. Over all this is a very remarkable man and beast  interaction that sheds light on hyenas. I hope this give us a sense of how cool hyenas could be.

I first saw a picture of these Nigerian street performers and their use of Hyenas in the NC Museum of Art in Raleigh. They were taken back in 2005 by Pieter Hugo when he followed them as they performed. I never realized how big hyenas are.
