Pumpkin Carver Extraordinaire – Ray Villafane

Ray Villafane, internationally acclaimed sculptor, pumpkin carver and magic maker, shares tips and tricks to take your Jack-o-Lantern to the next level.

NOTE – I have attended two Pumpkin Carving Celebrations at Cave Creek’s Sundial Garden and Ray Villafane was the main sculptor/teacher each time. His work is beyond excellent. He carves more than pumpkins. His sand carvings are outrageously detailed!

Here are a few of my blog posts with some of his amazing pumpkin creations:

Vide-Oh: Fish Works Hard For Romance, But…

The BBC presents an interesting study of a Puffer Fish that constructs an amazing lair to entice an impressed female to be his mate. How this small fish can construct such a massive, finely detailed creation under water is hard to fathom (pun intended of course).

I am sure you will agree!

Video: Hummingbirds in Slow Motion (Amazing)

I found the video below quite mesmerizing and I think you will as well. I have to admit up front that I am a bird person. I enjoy casual birdwatching and photographing the wide variety of avian creatures nature has gifted to us.

What makes this video so interesting, in my opinion, is not only the exotic variety of intriguing, colorful, tropical hummingbirds, but also the slow motion style that reveals their elegant movements.

ALSO…please read my note below.

Amazing Picture of Cyclist’s Leg Veins

Many of us have probably had the experience of having blood drawn and having the technician ask us to make a fist. What does making a fist actually do? If you make a fist, it increases the prominence of the vein.

If pumping a fist does that, what can we assume happens to the legs of a cyclist in race such as the Tour de France?

Hiking: Yellow-Throated Gilia, Sequoia National Park, CA

One of the reasons I enjoy hiking is that it offers opportunities for interesting discoveries; some anticipated and others serendipitous. We were hiking along the Crescent Meadow Loop Trail in Sequoia National Park nearly a year ago when we came across a patch of wildflowers tucked away in a wooded area…


Yellow-Throated Gilia wildflower

It was hard to believe that these were real. The colors were so vibrant and unusual in combination. It was an amazing sight. The next day we were on the Sunset Point Trail and there was a large swath of these wildflowers covering the entire hillside.

Love those standouts adding their all white accents in the middle of the patch!

To think that this performance was executed by high school students is astounding! This would be impressive if it were performed professionally on Broadway or at a Las Vegas venue. Everyone involved with this production should be saluted.

The choreography, dancing, scenery, etc. is wonderful and very well done. You will soon forget this was a hs gymnasium and I can guarantee that if you enjoy dancing and music, you will savor this masterpiece.
