Inspired by recent events and growing cynicism, I have installed a new slew of header images for the blog. Can you guess the theme?

Here’s a clue: Great Dismal _____.

    This is easy….for those that paddle.. Try Merchants Mill Pond and the Okefenokee and a few others! I’d provide a map but the ability to supply jpgs has been removed.

    In the real ecological world – a “swamp” is not some fetid hole where contaminated water drains and accumulates.

    That’s why we call them wetlands.

    They are actually vibrant ecosystems alive with plants and critters – diversity if you will.

    For some – a melting pot of culture and race – is a human swamp!

    the stereotypical “swamp” just does not exist in the wild – it’s a figment of folks imaginations….and those ignorant of what wetlands really are!

    1. OK, then, drain the wetlands!

        no…. there’s actually wetland mitigation banks to replace wetlands that are destroyed!

        Every acre that VDOT uses for a road that is a wetland -they have to replace 2-1.

    The irony that George Washington once wanted to drain it.

      The brainstorm belongs to Jim, not Haner. Sorry, Jim.

    I’m with Larry; swamps have gotten a bad rep in the current politics. I like the pictures; not so much the new slogan.

  8. Great Dismal Swamp is one if only two natural lakes in Virginia, a limnologists dream comne true.

    The only reason I know that word, I remember one time at work we were having a big meeting, and the word “limnology” came up. And the big manager said, what the heck is limnology? Someone stood up and said, sir, limnology is the study of lakes.

    I was impresed, but if I recall the guy actually had a degree in limnology.

    Didn’t Trump suggest lastMarch of closing the 2,000 mile Mexican border and erecting a moat that he would fill with alligators and venomous snakes and the fence would be topped with flesh -cutting razors? Is the the Bacon concept?
