This one goes out to Tiger Lacey

If your a believer in Christ and believes in all He can do, please now pray for my dear friend and bother Tiger Lacey. He’s in the CIU in Bend, Oregon. I don’t know much, but I think he may have gotten a virus overseas, and with the combination of battling a tooth infection, caused him to stop breathing. He was taken to the CIU where he’s on support and they have started the treatment for the virus and infection. Last I heard, he’s blood oxygen levels were starting to come up, which I believe is a good sign.

If you’re a believer, now it is the time to get on your knees and pray. Ty is a Husband, a new father, a friend to many, and brother to lots.

These go out to Ty.

Update: It looks like it’s Bacterial Meningitis. Please continue to pray as hard as you can. Meningitis is severe. Please God, be with Ty. Stop the swelling. Bring him back to us.

Pond Flower

Pond Flower

I took a picture of a friends pond the other day. I thought I could use it for work since I work at a pond and aquarium supply store. I got a snap of a nice flower that was in the pond and I thought I would share it here first.
I thought it was nice and figured you would too.
I’m going to submit the picture to my works picture contest to see if I cant win my friend some money. Enjoy

Off to the beach!

So, I’m at it again. Blogging brings me back to when I had infocusphotography.com where I kept and managed a blog a couple times a week. It was hard work but rewarding. I’m trying out this new blog for a way to keep track of some of my thoughts, experiences, and adventures. My first adventure was off to the beach. Here where I live, there has been a ton of fires all around us. I heard (don’t know how true it is), but with all the fires in the US, all the fires in Oregon make up like 92% of the fires. Needless to say, we needed some fresh air. We went with some friends and it was a blast to just get away for the way. I wanted to share a wonderful tide pool we found. Take a look. I hope you enjoy.

Tide pool found in a rock. Picture Perfect!

I’ve never found a tide pool like this one. I’ve studied a lot about the ocean in some college classes. We did tide pool investigation which was usually right where the tide meets the rocks, but this tide pool was a giant boulder that had a worn out spot that caught ocean water in it. When the tide was in, the ocean almost covered the rock. When the tide was out, the water just ran around the bottom of the right, leaving the top of the rock and this perfect tide pool exposed. Those were some strong anemones!ย  Did you know they release nerotoxins, but thing is, they don’t affect us because our skin protects us. Now put it on your lips or tongue, that’s a different story. Give it a try sometime ๐Ÿ˜‰

A close up on the star fish and the anemone. Weird question, but have you ever tried licking one of these? I have ๐Ÿ™‚
