Respite From Politics

(If you must politics, please keep scrolling)

Enjoy this respite from contentious topics, especially the topic of politics:

Another of Gruntlesnoot's nature videos below the fold.


  1. I love parrots; their behaviors are fascinating!

    Ah, and wonderful classical music, too.

  2. Parrots, posies and Pachelbel!

    What a delightful combination!

    Thanks, AOW!

  3. This astonishing jazz version by Nina Simone of "Black Swan" from Mennotti's opera The Medium would make a wonderful alternative to the Tchaikovsky as a background for the Swan video:

    I'd almost forgotten how dark and menacing this orchestral episode from Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake could sound.

    There is something haunting and grim about the surface of that water -- especially the area choked with reeds.

    I often wonder if the wild creatures have any idea of the danger -- or the wonder -- in which they live?

  5. FT,
    Anything for a break from politics right now!

  6. A nice break. We can really take a break once the election is over.

    Hubby and I voted today, proudly cast our vote for Romney (against Obama).

  7. Off Topic: Check your email for a graphic.

  8. I dated a guy years ago who I LOVED....(at the time)...the Canon in D started our relationship (long story)...kind of made me sad listening; the bird helped perk me up!
    I used to have flocks of parrots outside my kitchen window in an old apartment I lived in...I love parrots!

    AOW...wait till you hear who I SAW TONIGHT! at geeeZ :-)
