I am not going repeat what I already wrote here. A quick synopsis, starting August 1st, 2010 I will publish a picture I take that day everyday for a year (well to be exact I will do this everyday until July 31st, 2011). This is the 148th of those photographs. Also, there is a Flickr collection called “The Awesome Leftovers” where I put the daily shots (if any) that didn’t make the cut.
I am so far behind on posting my picture of the day, it’s crazy! I need to catch up. This picture is from the day after Christmas. I’m in North Carolina at my parents house and these trees are in their backyard. I just really liked the birds, snow and trees. It was beautiful on the river that day.

This is my Sofia. There are not many like her. You have to meet her to understand. We’re at Topsail Beach, North Carolina. Here are the ones that missed the mark, but not by much, Day 24 – Still Chilling.
Yes, another Ecological Footprint Calculator, but this one has birds, music, animation. I really like it. If everyone lived like me we would need 2.9 planets. I need to work on that.
Currently they have calculators available for the U.S. and Australia. Click here to see how your living habits relate to your use of the planet’s resources.
The Seagull Strikes Back
According to WFF,
Our oceans are being seriously over fished. So much so, that unless action is taken some of our favourite fish may disappear from the seafood counter and restaurant table altogether. But it is not just our supper that’s at stake. Unsustainable fishing is decimating the world’s fisheries, as well as destroying marine habitats and incidentally killing billions of fish and other marine animals each year.
Play The Seagull Strikes Back and help blast the unwanted politics out of fisheries management!
I love this game…pooing on the man!!! Warning, it is not as easy as it looks!
Reason 58 from, 101 Reasons Why I Am Vegetarian:
Several years ago, a New York Times story featured an Ohio schoolteacher who discovered that a “swirling poison” invaded his home from a nearby hog farm and “robbed him of his memory, his balance, and his ability to work. It left him with mood swings, a stutter, and fistfuls of pills.” His diagnosis: irreversible brain injuries from hydrogen sulfide gas. But the source of the H2S was half a mile away. Only after visits to 14 doctors was the cause of his symptoms determined. Surprisingly low levels of the gas will eat the brain over time. Neighbors of industrial hog farms will also experience diarrhea, nosebleeds, earaches, lung burns, chronic sinusitis, asthma, and corroded lungs.
