They are all over where I am.  They follow the geese and pick off the sick and weak.  Survival of the fittest.

Yeah, they're fairly widespread here, too. Thanks to banning of DDT. :)

Went hiking yesterday and today.  The first park was Henry Coe and it was wonderfully sunny and warm but not too warm.  The second park was Portola State Park.  The weather was very nice again but the hike was in the Redwood forest so was cooler and different than Henry Coe.

That would be pretty cool to see...bald eagles stalking the weak geese.  Have you ever seen it?

@michaeld Oh I’d like to see that Picard show. But isn’t it on Netflix and not on regular TV?

 

I have some terrible news. My brother died in his sleep. Mom and I are in total shock! I just can’t believe it. He was almost 52.

So sorry for your lose @Gentle Giant.

We don’t have many eagles here but we have tons of gorgeous hawks.

@Gentle Giant, sorry to read that horrible news. Our condolences to you.

 

@cdrdash, thanks for posting the photos

 

So far Northern Iceland is even more spectacular than the South, although it'll be a while before I get home and find time to upload everything.

I'm guessing by your username you're from T.O.? 

 

Welcome to AVEN :cake: from a former Oshawa resident and frequent visitor to Toronto. I still try to get up there a few times each year to cycle along the Waterfront Trail and the Don Valley trails.

Oh, no, @Gentle Giant. I am so sorry. I am just catching up. It must be such a shock. Sending you and your mom condolences.

😲 how much on-line shopping do you do? 

 

Only teasing...

Everything I buy is online.  All my household supplies, dog and cat food, even my groceries.  I also buy clothes, etc online.  But only if I can do free returns and exchanges.

Knowing my luck, the dogs would ignore me but the UPS and Fed Ex drivers would be there asking for their treat.

LOL, I should have some people treats on hand!:lol:

A while ago we were discussing Star Trek on this thread! Anyone watching the new Picard series? The first episode is now out. (I'm saving it till I visit my parents in a few weeks: I always watch star trek with my mother.)

I LOVE Star Trek.  I remember when Patrick Stewart made the announcement at Comic Con about the new Star Trek, and it was so hush-hush regarding the plot.  

 

I haven't seen Star Trek Discovery either as it's on CBS as well.  That's the only network channel I don't have access to because of streaming conflict with Hulu.  I might just purchase CBS Access for 1 or 2 months and binge them.:D

Didn't need a crown to repair my tooth. Apparently the dentist was able to fill it like a cavity.

I had a broken tooth extracted yesterday. It only took a minute or so . Today its sore though. No: today it's very sore indeed. I am only eating soft foods like soup and yoghurt but I made some chocolate mousse with Nutella ( hope folk know what that is - a sort of chocolate/ hazel nut spready thing) so now Im a bit happier cos I do like chocolate! Glad you were okay, though @will123

Used to eat Nutella as a kid.

 

Luckily there was no pain/discomfort from the broken tooth. Unlike one about 15 years ago that my tongue would touch the sharp edges.

@Tunhope, hope you're less sore this morning

 

It's back to the grindstone after the week off. Already planning Iceland 4, looking to the East Coast next time. Two inhabitants of Sky Towers greeted my return by running straight to their dinner bowls
