Dale Stewart & Bayou Woman on “Nature’s Edge” — 23 Comments

  1. What a neat experience for you. I started listening, but then saw it’s forty minutes, so I’m going to have to put it off for a while. Maybe tomorrow morning. I do know people who listen to podcasts all the time. Since I don’t have any of the gadgetry that lets me listen “on the go,” I tend to ignore them. But I have gone so far as to download a few to my computer, so I know that can be done, too.

    Being without a television, I’d not heard of the show “Doomsday Preppers.” My, goodness. What a way to live. Being prepared is a good thing. Even I’m smart enough to know that you need to stash some bottled Starbucks in case you can’t make coffee. But… uh… When the great EMP comes, or the Wookies take over the world, I’ll just wave goodbye. As long as I outlive my cat, it’s all good. 🙂

    • Oh, Linda, that we could all have such a great outlook! You made me laugh with your stocking of Starbucks (really?). I had to stop and think about the outliving your cat remark. Folks never want to outlive their kids, but your kitty can’t take care of herself if you’re gone. So, yes, I get it! The show is sometimes entertaining in that you see just how many crazies there are out there and then how many sane people are prepping and living off the grid. I just stumbled upon it one night, and it happened to be Survivor Jane, and Dale had told me all about her during his visit, so I was intrigued. What really interested me, though, was the secret survival garden her husband designed. Makes me wish I had done that on my 3 acres when I first moved here 18 years ago. Interesting stuff.

  2. Dale Stewart sounds like an extremely interesting person to sit down and talk with. I’m sure you were enthralled; I know I would be.

    Dang…. I always forget to do the math before hitting ‘post comment.’ lol

    • Thank you, Louise. It’s hard for me to know if my message is coming across, because I have so many things flying through my head that I want to say. And I get easily side tracked while talking–something I’ll have to work on. But listening to this will really help me polish things up I hope–because doing live radio shows, I don’t get to hear what blips and bloopers! Thanks for the kind words! (By the way, did you have time to listen to the radio recording?)

  3. I can’t wait to listen to this! I’ve been waiting since my visit with you (and Dale). I’m just back from my trip so will do that this week. We need to do some catching up this week also!

  4. Maybe I need to pass on some of my fly fishing talents? Doc has got to get me on some better drugs for my issues. Decade be a great place to flay clousers at trout I suspect.

    Oh blu’s fashion police genes want to know about Glenn’s shirt and where to get one?

  5. You are so knowledgeable and articulate, Captain Wendy. That football field loss every hour is something that should be brought to the nation’s attention, and a class action lawsuit should be brought against the oil companies who dredged those canals through the marshes.

    • Interesting that you should mention lawsuit . . . . because one parish is doing just that, but it’s not class action. Plaquemines Parish is suing some of the bigger oil companies, and I guess this will set a precedent. I’m pretty certain, though, that my parish will never file such a suit because Oil is King and politics, government, and big oil are all tied together. Many of our lawmakers and politicians either own or owned oil companies and mineral cmpanies that caused much of the damage. Many of the canals were “permitted”, but the wherein lies the biggest violations that could have been rectified before we got to this point was the requiring of the canals to be “back filled” once they were no longer in use. That was supposed to be done, but many companies got away with not doing so. And here we sit . . . . . and that’s just the tip of a very large iceberg! Your comments are much appreciated, though!! It’s great hearing from you again!

  6. This post doesn’t pertain to this particular news item but, I was looking thru Facebook posts from some friends and one had a link to weird things animals do. I clicked on it to watch some of them and imagine my surprise when one of the animals was a gorgeous, dark blue (almost black) bird doing a shadow dance! I really loved watching it and since you had posted about it recently, I knew what/why the bird was doing.

    • Oh, I’d love to see that again! How cool is that? Thanks for sharing, Cammy. Life has been incredibly busy down the bayou, but nothing worth photographing or writing about. Something better come up quick so I can write a new post. Either that, or I have to get very creative! But I do have a couple adventures coming up on the water this week, and hopefully I can get some good photos for y’all!
