About This Site
What I plan to provide on this web site: or why would anyone want to come here for a visit?
I am just your average normal person although I belong to a group called The Strange Men’s Group. I have likes and dislikes, lots of hobbies and deal with serious stuff too. I believe that if something is of interest to me it is probably of interest to others. Here is a quick rundown of my interest: environmental issues, fly fishing and fly tyng, gardening, my family, and photography (not necessarily in that order). Hope you stay a while. email
There is Information about watergardens, koi ponds and my other outdoor interest.
There are many environmental issues which I find interesting, and there are areas where I have a special interest (click on About Us). To find your way on this site go to the blue sidebar to your left or click on Navigating Site.
An ongoing project on this site is following the progress of the fall cankerworm every year. I have been doing that since Hurricane Hugo hit over 20 years ago.
I closely follow the Fall Cankerworm problem in Charlotte. I will post almost daily during the fall and spring seasons. If you wish to see that now, go directly to Cankerworm information 2014. (Edited updated year to current link.) Winter is here and we are well into the cankerworm season. This has been a big thing in Charlotte North Carolina. Many people around the country follow this information.
On this first page we will always start with Today’s Topic. This will read backwards like a typical Blog. If you want to see what happened several weeks or months ago, just scroll down to the appropriate date. I try to post to this about every two to three weeks.
Photos at this time are (mostly Koi, waterlilies, and lotus), Featured Dog (Blackjack),
