Brush-hogger Dave ~ Tree Swallow ~ Deer ~ Longest Word ~ Picture of the Day ~ Creamy Tomatillo Ranch Dressing ~ Rico Suave ~ Jimmy Duran ~ Strawberries & Cream Day

Good 43º clear sunny morning. 

The rain yesterday stayed up on top of my mountain and never hit ground here and after cloudy breezy it warmed to 70º.  
Dave got here just after 7am and went onto finishing the brush-hogging of the upper pastures...

While I was standing on the porch taking pictures.... momma Tree Swallow was watching me.... Her babies are in the birdhouse. She doesn't act scared when I stand there.
Momma deer and her baby were out and about.........

Baby standing by the burn pile.....

The longest word in any of the major English language dictionaries is pneumonoultramicroscopicsilicovolcanoconiosis, a word that refers to a lung disease contracted from the inhalation of very fine silica particles, specifically from a volcano; medically, it is the same as silicosis.

Picture of the Day
Snail House (Sofia, Bulgaria)
The construction of this house lasted 10 years and ended in 2009. The Snail House is a five story family home, with antique furniture from the owner’s ancestors and funny heating radiators in the shapes of a frog, pumpkin and ladybugs.

Here's another one of Kevin, the Closet Cook's recipes

He never impressed me, maybe because he always seemed to play a gawky dorky dumbo. Can't imagine that is too far from his real personality! Which is pretty much how most actors are... their real personality comes through.

All I know. Nuff said. Happy Monday. Ciao.

National Strawberries and Cream Day is observed annually on May 21st.   Fresh strawberries and homemade whipped cream is a must when strawberries are in season.  They are the perfect, refreshing, light snack on a beautiful warm day!
Strawberries are a very healthy snack as they are low-fat, low in calories and an excellent source of vitamin C, fiber, folic acid, and potassium.
