NEW PAGES, PERSPECTIVES, PROCRASTINATIONS
I came back from a run around the block and found out that it is really cold out there. It’s warmer in here. I checked the boxes and the temperature has not affected the recording. The sensors and traps will have to be calibrated for air density and the data corrected to daily conditions. Hope the formulas go that low, I’m not in the mood for complex mathematics.
The reference pages are coming along, (much more slowly than I anticipated,) and have been updated, augmented, and added to – nothing is ever complete. The following have been added or augmented:
Invasive Species: – place holder
Yellowstone’s Current Trout Species – good popular history of the trout in the park. Excerpted from John Byorth’s “Trout Shangri-La”
The Object Of The Game – introduction to benchrest shooting
Benchrest For Beginners – how to do it
Conditions & Capable Rifles – wind, mirage, practice – practice – practice
Yellowstone – A Petting Zoo? – update
Genetic Reservoir / Invasive or Natural? – the heart of the problem
The Inevitability of Introgression – why is this resisted?
Insane Bison Genetics – ignoring inevitability
Sane Bison Genetics – observing inevitability
TARGET SHOOTING – update
YELLOWSTONE – update
On a day with weather like this it’s imperative that food have high caloric and visceral value. I’ve opted for a 1991 Estate Bottled Sangre de Torro, by Torres. It’s hearty, very very red, and is the perfect companion to some salsa and chips. So are the bits of cork from a dried out Spanish plug – GIMME SYNTHETICS – TRADITION BE DAMNED!
Speaking of weather; Randy at Driftless Skies has a terribly low albedo and needs to be comforted. It’s too warm in the refugium. He’s also found a nice site about our Cutthroat Trout. It’s from the FisheyeGuy up at Big Sky – 51 miles of icy road north of here. Today would not be the day to tickle the anchor ice with either your camera or your other parts.
And speaking of wine; click on over to the Winehiker for a note on California’s Top 10 Wines – (they can count to 9 on that coast,) and a peek into the Bay Area Wine Culture, (not viticulture.) Rent a barrel; my-oh-my. The Wine Sherpa looks to be on Highway 395 – headed toward Bishop – but that’s just my guess as no I.D. Was provided.
And speaking of fish; the GYC has released a powerpoint presentation from the Protecting Idaho’s Native Trout Symposium in 2005. The same page details the threats to the native populations. Yellowstone National Park has updated their fishing page to include a summary of the current 5-year protection program for native fish. A similar note was posted by Yellowstoner in Fly Fishing In Yellowstone National Park.
Well, I’m about out of Trader Joe’s Cashews. The sun has crossed the yard arm, and it’s time to see if the little car wil start.
