Without a zoom lens and a low battery, I saw this pallet yard on fire. 5 fire trucks and several field trucks maneuvered around the constantly changing art

Who’s Jersey Are You Wearing

The outrage in Tampa the last few days has been the release of Derrick Brooks from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Football team.  The team has had similar reactions in the past as fan favorites were injured, retired, released in the likes of the A train Mike Allstot and John Lynch.  Where did our heroes go and why?  This upheaval has happened many times over in the past and will continue many more times in the future.

While growing up, I recall one of the most crazy changes in sports history.  The all-time greatest hockey player, Wayne Gretzky had been traded from the Edmonton Oilers to the LA Kings.  How could they?  He was such an important and vital part of that team.  I had all things Gretzky, I collected all things Gretzky and now he was not an Oiler.  I had a jersey with his name on it.  I have a Bucs jersey with Lynch on it.  Now what? Longoria gone from the Rays, or Pujols gone from the Cardinals?

I know a hero who won’t change teams.  He will not let us down.  He will not get injured. He will not quit.  He will not retire.  I think the name on my jersey will be: JESUS

Prescribed Burn

Passed this prescribed burn area this morning.  Fire IS destructive but can help and is necessary for change, new life, growth, preserving an ecosystem and more.  A prescribed burn will take care of dead stuff.  It will burn up the litter.  It burns up young woody vines and shrubs.  All which can choke out an ecosystem.  If left unchecked, an environment can completely change to another.  If a controlled and prescribed burn isn’t instituted, the fuel source builds and the danger of a wild fire increases.  Take note of your life.  Do you need to burn away the dead, the litter, the bad growth that will choke your life and suck the nutrients.  If you don’t do a controlled burn, a wild fire may come when you least expect it.  Usually during the dry season in your life.  Burn IT.
