Here’s something for your viewing pleasure.
This one is located in Laikipia County, Central Kenya. So far this morning I have seen a giraffe (not the Floral type) some Hippos and some other animals. Should be an interesting morning of wildlife viewing.
Couple of live web cams for Oahu. H/T to explore.org
Sunrise isn’t for a couple more hours so there isn’t much to see. But should get interesting after daybreak.
Well I guess it had to eventually happen here.
This got a laugh out of me.
They’re starting with a “Vision Center” — the current museum, housed in a small West Boise building next to a store that sells Magic the Gathering and other gaming supplies.
BOISE - Following the failed state GOP Convention in Moscow on Saturday, questions still remain about what prompted the eventual meltdown. Infighting prevented the delegates from voting on any party platform issues or electing a new chairman. Late Tuesday, attorneys for the state and national party offices determined the party is currently without leadership.
(CNN) — A teenage boy had a plan.
According to authorities in Waseca, Minnesota, John David LaDue, 17, was going to kill his family, start a diversionary fire, set off bombs at an area school, kill the resource officer there and then shoot students.
Thanks to a woman who reported suspicious activity at a storage facility a tragedy has been averted.
Police were tipped off to the case two days earlier. Chelsie Shellhas called them about someone acting suspiciously at a storage facility.
“He shut the door, and I thought it looked funny,” she told CNN affiliate WCCO. “Because, normally, we see people come here, and it doesn’t take them 10 minutes to open a storage shed, so that’s why I called it in.”

A Missoula man was charged with deliberate homicide Monday for shooting and killing a high school foreign exchange student in his garage a day earlier, allegedly after setting a trap for burglars and announcing that he was waiting up at night to “shoot some (expletive) kid.”
According to the affidavit filed by Deputy County Attorney Andrew Paul, Kaarma and his common-law wife, Janelle Pflager, set up a surveillance camera and motion sensors - hoping to catch burglars who had allegedly taken phones and credit cards from them in recent weeks.
Pflager told police that she intentionally placed a purse in the garage “so they would take it,” and left the door open 5 1/2 feet. Then she placed a baby monitor in the garage and installed motion sensors outside.
Hopefully they will both spend the rest of their lives in prison.
Remember this asshole?
One of the armed Idahoans in Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy’s standoff with the Bureau of Land Management last weekend was photographed in a prone position aiming an AR-15 at federal law officers.
Eric Parker, described only as being from Central Idaho and captured in a Reuters picture by Jim Urquhart, was one of hundreds of people who identified themselves as patriots and militia rushing to the ranch near Las Vegas to come to Bundy’s aid after agents started confiscating his cattle.
I hope an arrest warrant has been issued for this moron and he is put away for a long long time.
