WHO'S GOT THE LINKS? - WE HAVE OIL SPILLS, BEARS, GARDENS, PAINTINGS, ENORMOUS CANNONS, LYNX AND A WHOLE LOT MORE!

SOME LYNX ARE CUTER THAN OTHERS
Here at Uncle Mac's we've come to know a lot of really fun, intelligent and well informed folks who have written, or built or created or simply know a lot about things that are worth sharing. These things probably have little if anything to do with growing a bumper broccoli crop, but hey, you can find that elsewhere.

We had a lot of fun tracking these links down for you, nearly as much as you are going to have following them. And so, with no further delay, the links!

    ****************************************************************

Glory Lennon is up first. She is a business woman, a Mom, a talented and prolific author and as much as anything, a Gardener, and yes, a Gardener with a capital G.

We are tumbling slowly into Autumn, and what could be better than to learn than how to save seeds from your own flowers and veggies. Glory knows these things. She is going to tell us how to preserve some seeds, but also why she just can't keep herself from doing so, right HERE.

Well, that's fine but suppose you want to save something specific like perhaps peony seeds? Then you should definitely take a look at THIS.

Want to get to know Glory better? No better way than to follow her award winning gardening blog, Glory's Garden, or her fun filled serial novel, Violets in Bloom!

THINGS THAT GO "WHUMP" IN THE NIGHT

And then there is this guy. We try to conceal the precise date when we are assembling a "Who's got the Links?" segment, but he always finds out about it somehow. Today, his contribution to gardening and to gardeners everywhere is to tell us about some great whacking big cannon which no army has used for nearly seventy years.

Well fine. I expect it worked wonders loosening tightly compacted or clay soils, dropping those high explosives all over the place.

He also thinks that the turnip growing community has a deep and abiding curiosity about Dire Wolves. We do not, but then again we have one here at the Shed, 13,500 years old if he's a day*, but still a cub at heart. A really, really, big cub!


GOT BISCUITS?


But I suppose someone might like some info, so HERE it is!

Additional confusion from this same writer may be unearthed at Seeds and Weeds, Unnatural Foods, and Low Crimes and Misdemeanors.


*THIS DEMANDS AN EXPLANATION AND ONE WILL BE FORTHCOMING. SOON.

****************************************************************
EVERY BEND IN THE TRAIL BRINGS A NEW SURPRISE
 
Mike Logan is a story teller, and the tales he tells are of hunting, fishing, hiking, canoeing and all manner of real life action in the great outdoors. Mike's clear descriptive style takes you right to the scene; you can smell the woodsmoke, feel the sun on your face and taste the cool, clear spring water. You can experience all of this at Saturday's Sunshine. We do, on a regular basis.
 
Sometimes the surprise that waits around the bend is larger than expected, and perhaps just a bit too surprising for the faint of heart. Michael brings that point home in this tale, entitled "The Merry-Go-Round". 

Another story which almost everyone can relate to concerns that "special place". Most of us had at least one, growing up. Not easy to get to, not necessarily safe either but oh so much fun and part of a shared experience lo these many years later. The story is called, "The Bay".


THEY REALLY ARE OUR BEST FRIENDS
Dog lovers, there is an entire section of doggy adventures for your reading pleasure at Saturday's Sunshine. You can find them right HERE.

Well, what are you waiting for?

THE ORIGINAL VIDA
This is Vida Guerra on Google...
 
AN ORIGINAL LYNN PARET

 
And this is Vida on my wall after Lynn Paret painted a colorful interpretation of the curvalicious Lady G.
 
Want to brighten up a corner of your house, office, apartment or in our case, shed? Visit Lynn's on line shop right HERE, or contact her with a special request, she honors many of those as well!
 
There is one problem with Ms. Parets work, and that is the cost. For the time being at least Lynn's magic is embarrassingly under priced, and arguing with her does not rectify the situation.
 
Sending her more than she charges does not work either, she simply sends it back. What are you going to do with someone like that?
 
Exploit the heck out of her before she wises up, of course!
 
Do yourself a solid and visit Lynn's Etsy Shop, whether for your own unique piece or for a special Christmas surprise that can be obtained nowhere else.
 
 
 
**************************************************************
 
And now as is our custom, a few random lynx links, because that's the kind of folks we are here at Uncle Mac's.
 
TINY ONES CHECKING OUT THE WORLD FROM THE SAFETY OF THEIR LOG
 
 All work and no play makes a baby lynx a boring little fellow. There is nothing boring about these three; they are having a great time. Watch them HERE.
 
Want some interesting facts about the Lynx Genus? National Geographic serves some up right HERE.
 
You didn't think those three little rascals were done playing, did you? They were just warming up. See them HERE.
 
If Momma is going to feed those little bundles of energy she is going to have to do a lot of hunting. See a Lynx in action right HERE
 
 
 
And that is about that for todays' random Lynx.
 
 
************************************************************
 
This brings us to the enigmatic Alexandra Heep, creator of the popular blogs "A Heep of Nascar and "A Heep of Everything".
 
Alex has heeps of the interesting and entertaining in both locations.
 
 
 
But NASCAR is a particular love of hers and she is knowledgeable about all things NASCARian. Like, what happens when a fervent fan suddenly comes into a great deal of money. There is no need to guess, Alex tells us right HERE.
 
Ah but life is not all fun and games! We've all face our monsters back in the day. Which was yours? Alex has something to say about that as well. Just click THIS.
 
 
 
Don't forget to become a member while visiting these great blogs; you won't want to miss a thing!
 
 
****************************************************************
 
And now for Raymond Alexander Kukkee and Incoming BYTES. You really want to become familiar with that blog, and become a member.
 
Raymond is many things, one of which is a gardening buff and he had great success this year. He shares his bounty with us HERE.
 
 
  
But Raymond is an author as well and has been down the path so many of us have walked. He has some sound advice for those of us wishing to carve out a writing career on the Internet. HERE it is. 
 
 
Ray also has his eye on the environment. Sometimes the damage an environmental disaster causes is exacerbated by the ignorance, indifference and corruption that attends the "clean up". Raymond weighs in, and you'll want to read all about it, HERE.
 
 
***************************************************************** 
 
Our job here is done. We had the links, and now you have them as well. Enjoy!
