From October 15, 2011

I am absolutely fascinated by elk this time of year. Some will walk right by you like you are not there and they are so big literally about the size of a horse. Today I stood about ten feet from a female elk (cow) and her head was above mine. Pretty damn wild. When the bull elk show off their stuff to impress the ladies it is insane. They literally run as fast as possible at each other and smash their horns and heads together and you are able to see all this right in front of you and in the wild not some zoo….awesome!


Click to hear Ladies Man bugling to impress the the women….

Arizona is very environmental. Notice the farm and pond in the middle of the desert!!!!

Haiti

Posted by mike on January 17th, 2010 under ???  •  Comments Off on Haiti

I was skeptical of most Haiti “relief funds” not knowing where the money would go, however I found a secure organization. The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. Bill Clinton and George H.W. Bush did a fantastic job raising money to help people displaced by the 2004 Tsunami and applying the money to ensure it was spent correctly. I visited Thailand two years after the Tsunami near ground zero in Thailand which was completely restored.

With donations Haiti can be restored beyond its current third world country status. I choose to skip a night out and donate the money to the Clinton Bush Haiti fund. Skip a dinner out and donate the money……

Notice the horse…the elk were in a horse pasture.

They started chasing the horse and the Bull Male is as big as the horse…so cool!!!!

The women at the end must be super cool. They must be the lovely ladies…because the male heard only go after the young ladies in the front! However there are a few gentleman looking at the lady in the back…seeing it in person is sooooo cool!!!!
