Hello Skywatchers!



http://skyley.blogspot.com/

I found this interesting group that show case how beautiful our sky can be.

These are two contrasting weather clouds. This weekend, we have weather warning, heavy rain, strong gale winds and boaties, don't go out to sea. 

The fine weather cloud was taken when I was waiting for the lights to turn green. I no longer am impatient for the lights to change. The sky is now a painting for me to enjoy.

I am a motorcycle rider, partly to try a use less petrol. I am also a BIG ANIMAL LOVER, I can't kill an ant. Part we are the top of the food chain.And can do things like ride bikes and that puts everything at risk. I would not wish death on the bear or rider. But that being said, have you ever seen a Grizzly bear ???
They can get to 2000 lbs and can run up to 40 mile per hour, so if the bear cross the road running and the bike was do 65 MPH they could hace hit at 100MPH. Can you think how it would feel to fit a concrete wall at 160 KPH. I would not wish that on any thing. I cried the other day, when I fit a small bird in my car. I am sorry this happened.

Hi PB,

Tried to post my comments on your blog, but couldn't, so I reply here.

I was just thinking that the grizzly was so big. Do they duck across the road often, or was this a once off situation. We have lots of road kills like hedgehogs and possums. Even at a suburban road.

My thoughts of bears are the poor ones being milked for their bile.

Seriously, was the bike rider hurt? I should not have been so harsh in my comment. Was it a country road that bears cross the road?

Hello Ann,

Thank you sooooo much for visiting my Blog, and becoming my follower.

We have indeed a lot in common and I'm growing fonder of your country.

Keep in touch,

Hi Fernanda,

The Prtuguese came to South East Asia in 1511-1641.

They settled in Malacca, now known as Meleka. I had to study it's history when I was in school.

Now they have a Portuguese village. During Christmas, they light up the whole village, and people from all over come to view it. It is very interesting as Malaysia is a Muslim Country. My friend took me one year.

We have influenced like the devilled egg.

Cheers,

Ann

Hi Ann, your skie looks beautiful. The sky gives us every day a change. Not one day the sky looks the same. I am always checking the sky. In the evening when I am cooking dinner and I suddenly see
"red" in the sky, I quickly grab my camera not to miss a sunset because one moment it is here and the next gone. Thank you Ann for your comment. Yes, I knew there was a city called Quandong in China. Why was the name change?
I did not post SW because I had a touch of the flue. Not a cold but every muscle in my body was affected and hurt. I had not had one for a couple of years; I probably had it too good! Anyway it is much better now. I wish you a very happy week T.
