You take really nice photos, Rick. You can almost tell what color the pilot's eyes are!

Question about the windmills: can you hear them from your house? I have bat hearing, so I'd be afraid I'd be listening to them whoosh while I would be trying to fall asleep.

Random Photo Thread: The Sequel

Love the moon shot! When I take moon pics, no matter how big it looks to me, it just looks like a dot in the pic. Cool capture of the plane too!

Nope. They are over 2 miles away.

You have to use a telephoto lens of some kind to give that sort of perspective. I took that last August (I think it was August, but maybe September?) on the night of the supermoon.

I've mentioned in other posts that we keep traditional breed pigs for pork.
Here are a few pics...
1. British Saddlebacks


2. Oxford Sandy & Black. Once almost extinct in the UK.


3. Berkshire - one of the oldest pure breeds in the UK. Apparently they are highly prized for their taste by the Japanese Royal family!








These pigs are not usually kept commercially so it is up to small scale breeding and enthusiasts to keep the breeds viable. They do taste far better than anything you can buy in the supermarket.

Hello, dinner! Those are fine looking pigs. I especially like the markings on the Oxford. ~ We currently live in Massachusetts. There are a number of farms that raise the Saddleback and Berkshire breeds. One of these days I'm going to raid our piggy bank and get us some of the chops for dinner.

I need to find a piggery around here. Had one in Montana that we shopped from. Wonder if Mom and Dad would like to go halves on a pig...

My CSA sells pigs and cut pork. The cut pork is US$15 a pound and up. They started with Berksires but now are running what ever they can buy and call it "pastured pork". For the money I'll stick with Hormel.
