We must shed all of the old thinking

We are living in an interesting period in human history: a transition period between an old, corrupt system of living and a new, pure way of life, based on respect for each other and for our planet. You may want to view the other videos in this playlist in order to get a better understanding of what I’m talking about.

I know the title of this post sounds like a silly band name, but this is actually about our cat Tiki and a bunch of Garrulous Jays. These birds just love to tease our cats by parroting their meows and getting them to climb onto high branches in our trees, only to fly into the next tree and to start over, hoping to fool them twice. They also whistle and imitate other species of birds.

This particular morning, about 7-8 jays descended onto one of our paulownia trees and began to chirp in a way we hadn’t heard before. They also raised up the crests of feathers on the tops of their heads, which was also something we hadn’t seen before. Perhaps it was their mating ritual and they were trying to impress a female. Well, our curiousity was piqued, so I got my camera for a closer look. Tiki also couldn’t resist the challenge, even though he’s been fooled by them plenty of times before. Up the tree he went while the jays retreated to higher branches and kept a close eye on him while they chatted and chirped for about 10 minutes, then flew away unmolested.

Sorry Tiki, fooled again!

In spite of repeated visits from Old Man Winter (whose visits I love by the way), spring is in the air and the flowers in our garden have been in bloom for weeks. Here are 20 images I’ve taken recently.

If you should like to license an image of mine, I’ve begun to build a catalog at Picfair. You can see it here: photos.raoulpop.com. Of course you can also contact me directly, but it’s probably easier to just get them there, and I think I’ve priced them quite affordably.

What are your sources of information?

It is vitally important that you use your powers of discernment these days and that you get your information from truthful sources. It is a period in our history when an incredible amount of manipulation and distortion of the truth is being used in order to control what people think and how they behave.

As promised in the video, here are links to the sources I talked about:

Good information, but beware of disinformation that has crept in among the accurate information:

A comparison of the Olympus E-3, E-5 and E-M1X flagship cameras

This is a hands-on comparison of three Olympus flagship cameras: the E-3, E-5 and E-M1X, which I made so you could see the progression in the design and the features of these models from 2007 to the present time. I own the E-3 and E-5 along with all of the PEN models. The E-M1X was on loan from Olympus Romania.

You may also want to see this post where I compare the E-M1X, E-M1 Mark III and the PEN-F.
