Jannat Hotel sign (my fav restaurant in Dhaka, Bangladesh!
Dhud Cha (milk tea)
Dal/Bhagi, Nan ruti, and salad(4 slices of cucumber and a hot pepper)!

4 am cleaning off the car; bkfst with friends, and then picking up some of my boss’s family, and birding. Obviously we could set up the scope on the road, since it was flooded and nobody was going on past this point. Saw many birds, but only one new bird! It always felt good to get back in to the car, to travel to the next site.

More Snow

Rain all day yesterday, now snow today! ❄ Roads messy, but tolerable. Side roads and streets not cleared yet. The scenery is beautiful.


I think the Stop sign is for the wind that is bringing cold air into Florida! We came here to spend some time where it is warm! We better not complain, since where we came from, it was at least 50°F colder.

Shrub Shadows

A shrub pruned, waiting until Spring to show it’s beauty again!

Backyard Feeders

Holly Berries

Somehow I thought these berries on the neighbor’s bush were mistletoe!! I guess not. She said we can use any of them we want in decorating. I was going to put them on top of all our doorways!!! 🙂 So much for that plan! Have a great January. By the the time you see this I will probably on my way to West Virginia, doing a 3-day meander towards Florida, with stops in W. Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina! I might even post some photos of the hopefully “Sunny South!”

This has been a typical Winter sunrise for the last several weeks in snow-covered Ohio. Not sure if we will see this again before another Winter. It is framed with my passenger side window.

Winter Coat

Yesterday we had temps in the 50’s, and the snow basically disappeared, so wondering if this horse shed his man-made Winter coat. I hear the temps are dipping again tonight!
