Desert Dandelion by calpoppy — Saturday March 15, 2014 — Llano, CA

I remember reading that Martha Stewart picked dandelions (not desert ones but the variety you see usually, btw, this desert dandelion and the photo is beautiful, to eat while she was in the slammer. She cooked them in the prison microwave, I think, so she would get some proper nutrition I believe she said.

On Tuesday, President Obama held a ceremony at the White House to announce his use of executive authority to expand the California Coastal National Monument (CCNM) to include the Point Arena-Stornetta Public Lands on the Mendocino Coast.



The Point Arena lighthouse is the only Pacific West coast lighthouse of significant height (115 feet.)The lighthouse also marks the spot in California closest to the Hawaiian Islands.

A masonry tower was erected on this site in 1870, fitted with a first-order Fresnel lens. The earthquake of 1906 destroyed the lens, tower, and dwellings, leaving only the fog signal builting intact. The 115 foot replacement tower was built of reinforced concrete with buttrussing at the bottom. A San Francisco company with experience building smokestacks was contracted to build the new tower, accounting for the smokestack-like design. The two-ton first-order lens shone from 1908 until 1977, when a modern rotating beacon was installed on the tower balcony.

I know this is amazing sight, but has anyone stopped to think about why? It seems these creatures have been sighted at different coastal areas from Hong Kong to BC to Ensenada. Just as the 3rd anniversary of the Fukushima disaster passes they make their presence known. Maybe they're running for their lives... as radioactive water has been spilling into the Pacific at the rate of 400 tons every day since the meltdown and only getting worse. I implore you all to do your research, this is a very dangerous situation and our ocean's future is at stake. -- commenter on above story

I guess we're lucky none of them pulled out a gun.

I guess that's why I am glad I live in the UK - kids don't have guns, as a right.

And as I always said... the minority spoil it for the majority. 90% of all teenagers are nice, family loving, well behaved, but they don't get into the media!

Hi, Mike!

Nothing much has changed, hooligan-wise. Each generation has their own. What's scary these days is that they're more likely to be armed, so it's risky to confront them.

We've had issues in the past with teenagers cutting through our yard. If we said anything (Excuse me, do you mind not cutting through my yard?), we'd get a lot of obscenities, lip and attitude thrown back at us, whilst they kept right on going. No respect for anything or anyone.

I guess we're lucky none of them pulled out a gun.



Yes, that is why I don't ride public buses anymore. Driving yourself is dangerous enough but if you take defensive driving courses and have a fast car you might have a chance. Oh, and don't get me started about commercial air travel, oy vey!!

As I have spent the last two days 'lozaking' (a Yorkshire term for lazing) in my recliner or on the settee in the conservatory, I haven't seen the images in #31. They are blank spaces on the IPad. I will be on the laptop to deal with some photos later, so will check them out.

Sorry the Scottish kids scared you...I guess they might have scared me, too back in the early 70's, before I became experienced in teaching 'yobbo's!!


How is your scroll finger holding up?

The yobbo's never physically bothered us and we couldn't understand a word of the insults I am sure they were hurling at us because of their thick accents. We talked about them in our American slang and laughed. Our fey trio pranced about Edinburgh and enjoyed the sights. Sometimes we sat up by the stairs though...(ready to make a scramble down!!)

How long ago did you go to Edinburgh? That bus looks as though it ought to be in a museum!

I believe the bridge is painted red not orange.

Love the moonrise photo from Tanger.

A famous railway bridge here is the Forth Rail Bridge. The saying is that once they have crossed the bridge to re-paint the metal, they have to begin again.

From Wiki - "... in 2002 they tried a new paint. It involved the application of 230,000 m2 of paint at a total cost of 130 million pound. This new coat of paint is expected to have a life of at least 25 years."

It was opened on 4 March 1890 and spans a total length of 8,296 feet.






I have been over the Forth Road Bridge. I don't remember much about the Rail bridge. I was sick as a dog when I made the crossing on the road bridge.

I had got off a BOAC prop, Source. after a flight from London to Edinburgh. This was before there was jet service to Edinburgh. Prior to that I had flown all night, about 7 hours across the Atlantic on a 707, Source. After landing in Edinburgh, then got on a bus without a windscreen, which was very cold, Source. When we crossed the bridge it was dismally grey. Sort of like crossing the Golden Gate Bridge in the fog.

Btw, the color of the rail bridge appears to be a shade of international orange like that of the Golden Gate Bridge, which apparently has it's own unique shade of international orange.

omg, ugh...lol, well, I am glad you enjoyed the photo op. Beautiful photo. Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Yes, dogs love to play in the snow! Mimi would just disappear into it!! I use to take mine up to Lake Tahoe in the winter sometimes so they could do that. We did take our dog here up to play in the snow at the 10,000 ft elevation on Mauna Loa one time to play in it. It was so cold up there, lol, especially after leaving the beach where it was 80.

My mother, step-father and sister live sort of near you in Rockville/Potomac, Maryland. I wonder if they got the snow too. I saw a friend of mine's St. Patrick's Day snow photo on FB just awhile ago. He lives in PG County, MD.

Today we woke up to eight inches of snow, it clung to every branch, covered the few spring flowers that dared to bloom yesterday, frustrated Mimi who wants to be in the snow to play, gave me the opportunity to enjoy the winter wonderland and to take lots of photos.

One of those fountains Sandi posted would be really nice in the house.
Hooray for broccoli and brussells. Love those. How about cabbage?


Yes, they are nice to have in the house, GG. Very calming. I thought about making one as it really isn't that hard to do and you can use materials that are meaningful to yourself or that interest, etc. The mechanics of it: the pump, tubing are easy to get at a hardware or garden supply store. The one I had in front of my house the previous owner made and I enhanced it with lots of lava rock and pieces of coral we found on the beach.

Cabbage is very good too...Vitamin C. I make cabbage salads. They taste good with French dressing. Spinach salads are good also with Blue cheese dressing. But be careful with the quantity of the dressing, lol

I am trying to eat more 'raw'. I read that slightly cooking broccoli and brussels is better as it releases more of the compounds that 'they' think protect against cancer cells.

I am trying to keep moisture out of the house here, Sandi. Remember the pumice stones? lol

I thought about getting an indoor fountain when I lived in the desert but didn't.

I had an outdoor fountain in front of my house here that I could even hear inside during the quiet of the night but the pump stopped working. Haven't got to replacing it...haven't been very motivated about this place for awhile now. It is all kind of underwater here as it is anyway, lol...otherwise I might be a "motivated seller" :-)

Mike, you can get indoor tinkling fountains. They sell them here to put in Conservatories to produce relaxing sounds, and also make the dry air, moist.

This is just one of the types....they do so many. I have one for the cat - he drinks from the fountain!!

Deva was good.

The Indian Medicinal uses..makes me remember how regional medicinal can be. Especially when you wildcraft or collect most of it from a garden. Made it out that way once, juniper & pinyon pines are amazing.

Rarely, I give the miniature horse I have some Valerian. He may have been in a barn collapse. He's really a freak about bad storms.


I like Deva. And Snatam Kaur, but I think I am more of a "Hindu" than a Sikh :).

I went on a hike through the Indian Canyons in Palm Springs with an Englishwoman guide who was so knowledgeable about how the Cahuilla Indians used the plants there to survive and medicine themselves in the oasis. Creosote Medicine

They also hid out from the Spanish Conquistadors back in those canyons. The Spaniards just wrote the surrounding desert off as as wasteland and moved on.

I hope the Valerian helps the horse. My last dog was a freak about bad storms. Not sure why as I had him since he was a puppy and we rarely had electrical storms in San Francisco, maybe a handful in a decade. The dog I have now, who I have also had since she was a puppy, isn't bothered by them at all. We rarely get them here in Hawaii also.

From the article on earthquakes

The outer edge of California snaps free like a steel spring in a juddering lurch—nine feet to the west. The continental shelf heaves upward, lifting a mountain of seawater.

Now that is just a little scary!!!!

Since I don't live far from the San Andreas fault (4 miles) that has always been a concern, but this fault off of No.Cal. sounds far, far worse!!



Apparently, it is far, far worse but not as frequent, at least the really big one. The San Andreas fault is 2 miles offshore from the beach in San Francisco. I guess I lived even closer to it when I lived in Palm Springs. Now, I just live on the biggest active volcano in the solar system.

Hi Mike,
I take garlic and red vine leaf, both for blood circulation. I don't have trouble sleeping, but when C had, he took something called "Nytol" which was basically Valerian.

If I feel like I need a sleep enhancer I take a glass of warm milk with a teaspoon each of cinnamon and honey in it! Taste divine and works, too!

We have Chinese herbal shops here in the UK. Next time I am in the shopping centre I will take a photo of the window... it looks like your photo! Not that I have ever been in!! lol

Your welcome, Sandi :)

A friend of mine was telling me he takes Valerian root now also, Briar. I get muscle cramps in my feet and shin areas sometimes and have thought I might try it. Might help with sleep also. I take Melatonin now when I have trouble sleeping. I use to take a pharmaceutical that would give me a bad hangover so I prefer the melatonin. But it too has some side effects.

I juice the turmeric and add cinnamon to it to help metabolize the sugars.

I saw these huge sticks of cinnamon in the Cho Lon Market in Ho Chi Minh City. I would love to get those here, lol. Have to settle with ground Saigon cinnamon that I get at Costco I guess.



Thanks for the beautiful photo! When I lived in Palm Springs, I was told that was the closest beach if you went to the coast from the desert. Never got there.

I'm a fan of medicinal plants. One of my favorites is Valerian Root, which I take in capsule form to help with muscle cramps and also occasionally to help me get to sleep.

Cinnamon and turmeric also have wonderful medicinal properties.
