Things I Love The Most!

Updated on November 13, 2016

My Favorites Things

Hi, yes, that's me. I am standing in front of a beautiful pond and statue at Maymont Estate, in Richmond, Virginia. I visited Richmond in June, this year (2012) with a very close friend. The two of us participate in a Road Scholar Program whereby you have class discussions at your hotel, go on field trips, associate with other folks who have similar interest. I learned so much about Virginia, both as a colony state and during the Civil War. We had wonderful speakers from the University of Virginia and participate in several museums but had some free time just to experiment as well. The room accommodations were very suitable and the food arrangements for excellent---my kind of trip! I recommend you check it out if you are not familiar. Free to join, but you must be 50 years or older, I believe.

Last year I was able to take a trip to see the Annual Flower Show in Philadelphia. I had always wanted to go to Philly so it was a dream trip for me. One of the extra highlights was visiting Longwood Gardens. If you love flowers, especially orchids, this is a must! So Philly is a love of mine and so are flowers of all kinds.

What do I love - let me count them! I love my God, my husband*, my son and daughter-in-law and my most beatutiful granddaughters Marissa and Desiree. This is my very first lens created here a Squidoo. I love it! There are so many things that the best thing to do is let my imagination let go. So, here we go.

*On September 3, 2010, my beloved husband of 42 years,

Bruce C. Davison, passed away due to lung cancer.

Loved by me...hummingbirds, music, player pianos, carousels, books (the older the better), nature, sunsets, sunrises, music boxes, my digital camera, people, vintage...these are some of my favorite things. I love the United States of American, the flag, and I get tears in my eyes when I hear the National Anthem; our freedoms, our Constitution, Glenn Beck (thank you). I love blogs, and writing on blogs. I love the Internet and web pages. I also love my lenses, here at Squidoo.

I do love to blog. Squidoo is a great place to learn all the ins and outs. I plan on developing my blogging skills so that I can realize a part-time business in the affiliate marketing arena! I know I can do it and putting all my ducks in order, and given time, I will be there. Come join me. Come share your experiences, especially if you're new to blogging and marketing on the Internet. I hope you will stop by and visit and let me know what you love. Stop by @ Visit my site!

They Remind Me Of Bi-Planes.


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jump to: navigation, search

This article is about the insect. For other uses, see Dragonfly (disambiguation).

Anisoptera redirects here. For the genus of trees see Anisoptera (tree).


Yellow-winged Darter

Scientific classification

Kingdom: Animalia

Phylum: Arthropoda

Class: Insecta

Order: Odonata

Suborder: Epiprocta

Infraorder: Anisoptera

Selys, 1800











A dragonfly is a type of insect belonging to the order Odonata, the suborder Epiprocta or, in the strict sense, the infraorder Anisoptera. It is characterized by large multifaceted eyes, two pairs of strong, transparent wings, and an elongated body. Dragonflies are similar to damselflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most dragonflies are held away from, and perpendicular to, the body when at rest.

Dragonflies typically eat mosquitoes, and other small insects like flies, bees, ants and butterflies. They are therefore valued as predators, since they help control populations of harmful insects. Dragonflies are usually found around lakes, ponds, streams and wetlands because their larvae, known as "nymphs", are aquatic. Adult dragonflies do not bite or sting humans, though nymphs are capable of delivering a painful (though otherwise harmless) bite.


My Blog Page - I love the concept of blogging.

Seeing Through The Lenses

Yes, Seeing Through The Lenses is my blog. I am still very new at this and have not developed the followers, but I welcome all to come and visit and I encourage your comments. I want it to be fun and controversal as well. How else can we develop our blogging skills?

I am hoping to break into the affiliate market through article writing.....I have a ways to go but I know I can do it!

Hummingbirds - Wow! so Small, Such Speed.

Speed, Determination, Grace.

These little giants weigh less than 20 grams. Hummingbirds require lots of energy. They have the fastest wing beats of any bird and their hearts beat up to 1,260 beats per minute. Their wings beat approximately 55 times per second during feeding and up to 200 beats per second during maneuvers. A Hummingbird's flight speed can average 25-30 mph, and can dive up to 60 mph.

Hummingbirds must eat more than their weight in food each day, and they fulfill this need by eating often. Because their survival depends critically on eating frequently more than any other animal - they continually face the danger of starving.

Hummingbird are know to consumed a little less than 1/100 of a fluid ounce per feeding. How often hummingbirds eat meals, and the amount they eat in a day, depends on the energy content of food. Hummingbirds feed on a variety of flower nectars with caloric values that may vary from 10 to 82 calories per meal (1/100 fluid ounces).

A hummingbird can rotate each of its wings in a circle, allowing them to be the only bird which can fly forwards, backwards, up, down, sideways or sit in sheer space. To hover, hummingbirds move their wings forward and backward in a repeated figure eight, much like the arms of a swimmer treading water. Hummingbirds can move instantaneously in any direction, start from its perch at full speed, and doesn't necessarily slow up to land. Hummingbirds can even fly short distances upside down, a trick rollover they employ when being attacked by another bird.

There are over 300 different species, native only to the New World. There are 16 species of Hummingbirds in the United States.

Amazing Little Birds

The Gift Shop! - Great Ideas for Gift Giving

I re-discovered Edgar Allan Poe while in Virginia. He lived in Richmond for a while. Most know him for his poem, "The Raven", but I found several other pieces of his work that I like. I surprised myself because I didn't think I would. Many pieces of his work fall in the "macabre" arena.

TRIBUTE TO ALL DADS but especially my son.



It was February 7, 2007 you see, that Marissa Lorraine, arrived to be, Daddy's Girl.

His eyes got big when she arrived; could it really be, I am a Daddy?

He was extremely over joyed, yes sirree, and what a pleasant gift from God, is she.

For this baby girl was a miracle for mommy, daddy and family.

And there were medical issues for mommy and baby, but prayers brought them through, as many times prayers do. So mommy got stronger, baby did too. And spring came and baby grew and grew and grew.

Now baby is crawling and moving about; mommy and daddy have no doubt. She is the best little girl that ever could be; she even seems to love the camera, people, and Grammy, that's me.

So, now baby is walking, she is a toddler you see. Speaks occasionally now, however so softly. She is moving about, and doing some talking. Why, mommy and daddy got her doing "signs" and she's communication with her hands all the time.

So, she is no longer a baby, except to Grammy, that's me. She loves to play, look at her books and then flee! She is beautiful you see, and I know it won't be long, she will be three.

So, when it is time for Marissa to say her goodbyes, I love the expression I see in her eyes, when Daddy comes to pickup his little girl. As it is definite you see, she is Daddy's girl, as it was meant to be.

What's Your Passion, What's You Love?


I Love You California

The Golden State

I hate to be prejudicious...but I love California. I am a native of this great state; so is my husband and my son. Where else could you live where, within a two hour drive, you could be at the beach or the mountains or the desert. We have the California Poppy, The Golden Gate Bridge, the General Sherman Tree and Hollywood (ouch!).

ATTENTION you save our parks. See my link at the bottom - our parks are in trouble.


Yes, It Pays to Speak Up!


The voices of state park supporters across the state have been heard! Yesterday, Governor Schwarzenegger announced he reversed course on his draconian proposal to close state parks. He released a revision to his January budget and is now proposing to restore funding to keep all of California's state parks open and keep lifeguards on our state beaches.


Sequoias, Redwood, Giants

I think that I shall never see ...

Another one of nature's wonders, the Big Trees. Here are a few quotes regarding trees:

"Trees can reduce the heat of a summer's day, quiet a highway's noise,

feed the hungry, provide shelter from the wind and warmth in the winter. You see, the forests are the sanctuaries not only of wildlife, but also of the human spirit. And every tree is a compact between generations."

- George Bush, U.S. President, 1989

"A grove of giant redwoods or sequoias should be kept

just as we keep a great or beautiful cathedral."

- Theodore Roosevelt

"Do not be afraid to go out on a limb ... That's where the fruit is."

- Anonymous

"The groves were God's first temples."

- William Cullen Bryant, A Forest Hymn


Joyce Kilmer. 1886-1918


I THINK that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the sweet earth's flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

When I was a kid.... - Some of the best cartoons and TV shows used classical music

Tom and Jerry, The Lone Ranger, Little Lulu, Casper the Friendly Ghost and on and one. BUT, besure to check out the last video, Great Art!!! Guitar Music ....a modern computer automated musical cartoon. I just love this one.

I guess we all want to go back to those days of "carefree days". I know I like to visit now and then. How about you? See When I Was A Kid

Ottmar Liebert

A flair of Spanish Gypsy/Classical Guitar

Born in Cologne, Germany, he traveled frequently as a teen, winding up in Boston, where he worked as a bike messenger by day and rocker at night. His classical guitar training began at age twelve and is flavored by jazz and pop influences.

The Band/History

...the Luna Negra touring band is a rubber changes with the seasons, grows bigger and gets smaller...often the touring band does not resemble the group of musicians that makes the recordings...the only constant member since 1989 besides Ottmar is Jon Gagan on bass...



These are some of my wonderful marbles!

Have I lost My Marbles?

It Brings The Kid Out Of Me.

This Slag marble beauty I acquired from an on-line auction. It is signed by the artist, Brian Myers. It is called Ketcup and Mustard. I love the swirl of colors. I have always loved marbles. I find it very relaxing to just hold them and study their colors. I have found that, for a lack of a better way to display them, use glass "frogs", the ones you would use for flower arranging. Most work well.

To see what new is happening in the marble world try my reference link below.

Swirl Onionskin?

I believe this marble to be a swirl onion skin. I picked it up in a marble sale on E-bay. I was very fascinated by its color arrangement.

Bullseye Onyx (Agate)

Agate is harder than almost all other stone used for marbles, and is much harder than materials such as crockery, clay and glass. Because of the labor intensive method it took to produce which lead to its cost, these marbles became prized possessions. (credit: Antique Marbles - Paul Baumann)

This marble is hand ground. I can count at least 13 different bands of individual colors on this beauty. Its eye is of a very dark brown against white. Agate is very hard, and this one is small. It is mostly solid but has one area that is translucent. This one has a moon (fracture) inside not felt at the surface.

Golf Course Anyone?

I love this nib. It is a cream white with green swirl. It reminds me of either a golf course (green and sand trap) or a green island on a white background of sand. As I look at it real close, you can also see a faint "halo" of a similar green pattern under the white, as if its shadow is peaking through. I saw a picture of a Navarre swirl, possibly it could be one, however, not enough experience on my end. If anyone know....please comment at the guestbook.

World's Expensive Marbles

Think marbles are just child's play?

Although the speedy little spheres have been popular toys for thousands of years, today's marble collectors are prepared to lay down some decidedly grown-up quantities of coin for these colorful trinkets.

But what differentiates an everyday glass bauble from a thousand-dollar one-off? Like many collectibles, it's a combination of condition, rarity, demand, and vintage -- but there are five standout classes that consistently draw the big bucks.

continue article Why Some Marbles Are Expensive

I Love To Read

I love to read new topics, biographies, history, historical romance types and some novel. My favorite pass time is to browse in small independent used book stores. This is where you find the jewels. This was a real favorite when my husband was alive. We found a book on the history of the Burma-Shave Signs of the 50s. For you young pups that were not around, there used to be along the highway these advertising signs related to one product, Burma Shave cream and they would include a phrase, but usually broke down the phrase into 3 - 5 signs so that you had to pay attention to get the who phrase; here are a few of those jewels:

Twinkle, twinkle

One-eyed car

We all wonder

WHERE you are



She will

Flood your face

With kisses 'Cause you smell

So darn delicious

Burma-Shave Lotion

(or, one more)

Train wrecks few

Reason clear


Never hugs



This also helped keep the kids busy while on a long ride!

I Love Crochet

Did I mention, I love to crochet. I still have more to learn in this area but it is a fun pass time.

Learn to Crochet

Great Sounds...great Reads - I Love Ottmar Liebert; I Love Glenn Beck

How can you list your "loves" without including your music. I love all types of music. But last summer, at a swap meet, I heard this amazing sound...the sound of Ottmar. I have suggested a couple of his albums below.

I Love John Wayne - We Love America

I Love Ventura, California

      How can one not love hummingbirds? And how marvelous that you are a wildlife rehabilitator...I hope that the injured hummingbird made it through. I too love the Big Trees, especially redwoods. And, since you asked, I have a particular fondness for race horses, clean white beaches, eagles and volcanoes.

      I like your silly sense of humor too. There's nothing better than silly. Beany and Cecil are wonderful, as are Carson and Webb, but my favorite is Hippo and Dog brushing teeth.
