Trust No One~

A magnificent Florida Panther Picture credit: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers   On our news this morning was a completely unexpected revelation. It came, they said, from the Executive Director of the FWC although, they did not mention Nick Wiley by name. Was this an accident, or requested? It seems that Nick Wiley may or may not have […]

Wiley’s Whims!

Our magnificent Florida Panther Photo credit: Florida Panther page   According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, a whim is: ” a capricious or eccentric and often sudden idea or turn of the mind.” Lately, it appears that Nick Wiley is having a turn of the mind, or rethinking many things, including, Panthers, Black Bears, to hunt or not to hunt […]

Marjory, Miccosukees and Memories

Photo credit: Florida State Archives   Our beloved Everglades are about to be put under siege and attack once again from greedy, selfish developers and oil mongers. After the myriad of deceitful,  destructive insults that have been inflicted on one of the […]

Mixed Blessings

A magnificent Florida Panther Picture credit: U.S. Army Corps of Engineers   On our news this morning were at first glance what appeared to be three happy/good stories. After so many wildlife tragedies in the news lately, these were absolutely welcomed and needed to be shared. First the numbers for our critically endangered Florida Panther have reported to have rebounded and were cause […]

Ishi, et al.

Our baby Ishi, so far, the only child of our sweet Harriet   Not wishing to put you all to sleep or bore you yesterday with a excruciatingly long post, I decided to split it in half, this then, is part two. All the news today is not  bad, some of it is actually wonderful. […]

Ethics Be Dammed

The magnificent,  soon likely to be extinct, Florida Panther Picture credit: The Florida Panther page   Just now on our lunchtime news,   was a story about our Governor’s  supposed questionable connection to some of the very same  Companies that had recently been given permission to drill for oil by our DEP  in Collier County. They  said, that he owns a […]

A Day of Animal Mourning

A Florida Panther, Everglades National Park 2005 National Park Service Photo by Rodney Cammauf   While watching Sam Champion on the Weather Channel this morning, I was painfully reminded,  that today is  “Endangered Species Day.” Today is shamefully called National,  or is it Global Endangered Species Day? This day was apparently created nearly a decade ago, by the US […]

Panthers One, Drilling Zero!

Our beloved  Florida Panther Picture credit: John White   What day is it? It is once again finally,  feel good Sunday. Thank God! In a recent vote that looked sure to go the other way, Exploratory Gas drilling was rejected by the  Big Cypress Swamp Advisory Committee. It is still unfathomable to me,  that the recommendation for this disastrous idea came […]

Powerless Panther

The beautiful Florida Panther Picture credit: SFWMD   A California water Company was just given permission by the St. John’s Water board to double their daily take of our water this week, even though we are in the third year, of a four-year drought, here in Lake County and Central Florida. In the three recent drought  years,  our […]

Now, if you don’t have the great pleasure of living here, chances are that you may have never heard of, nor have ever seen, our beautiful Florida Panther. This rarest of the […]

When humans, cars and concrete came into […]

Our Florida Ghost~

The Florida Ghost Orchid (picture credit Mike Fournier)   There was a story in the news yesterday,  that prompted me to introduce you to a plant here in Florida that is so rare, that people from all over the Globe come here hoping to see it, some even come hoping to steal it. Few succeed at either. This deliciously rare and stunning beauty, is […]

No Place To Call Home

The beautiful Florida Panther It was fun to watch a young exciting team from south Florida reach the heights that they did this week, as they became the darlings of the press and were written about and talked about all over the country, but there is one thing you may never hear about this school and […]
