I have really enjoyed some of the hunting episodes that engage the use of drones/go pro's. Naturally, 99% of what hunting film I am watching was taken last year and I look forward to how unique a bunch of these young gun videographers can get with a drone.
Life gets better as I get older. Let's drone on. Maybe I will put one on my Christmas list.
Generally I get right back to sleep after a drink of water and a trip to the bathroom.
This morning I was thinking more than usual which isn't good for getting back to sleep.
This morning I thought that when you really think about it, most if not all of the countries problems come from two area codes. 212 and 202.
Sleep on that.

Let me see if i can get this straight. It can't be that hard if Obama is involved.
How many billions of dollars did President Zero spend on trying to eliminate the JV team, ISIS?
If the United States launched over 6,700 air strikes over the last year against ISIS and had very little effect then how in hell can Russia in only 60 air strikes knock the living hell out of the so-called JV team and literally degrade them? I guess the mission was accomplished as the Military Industrial Complex "won" the battle!
There are one hell of a lot of fat cats in the military industrial complex feeding off this mayhem.
All at the expense of the United States taxpayer.
In college, way back in the 70's, I learned more from my daily dose of the Minneapolis Star Tribune then I did from the overpriced text books. Back then it was day after day of United States military men dying in Vietnam. The Military Industril Complex was cleaning up back then as they are today. The suburbs of Virginia and Maryland have all the stories.
When will the youth of this nation rise up and demand some accountability?
We sure aren't getting it from anyone who is elected and needs $$$$$ from lobbyists.
The effects of actually seeing your friends in person are particularly salient in older individuals, and according to the Oregon Health and Science University study, those who reported “regular interactions with family and friends” were 5 percent less likely to face depression when compared to peers who only maintained phone, text, or email relationships. “We see a dose dependent effect with in-person contact,” says Dr. Alan Teo, a professor of psychiatry at OHSU. “The more face-to-face meetings, the lower the [depression] rates go.”
In conducting their study, researchers examined the interpersonal interactions of more than 11,000 Americans aged 50 years and older. Study participants were then monitored for two years for risks and signs of depression (other factors including health status, distance from family members, and mental health history were also taken into account). Ultimately, doctors found that respondents who had regular face-to-face interactions with their friends and family (at least three times a week), faced only a 6.5 percent chance of developing depression. On the other hand, those who only saw their friends or family once every few months or even more infrequently had an 11.3 percent risk of developing depression.
Of course, this isn’t to say that emails, texts, and other digital forms of communication are bad for us as a society. Indeed, an increase in messaging devices and mediums certainly allows human beings to stay more connected to one another. But at the end of the day, Teo says, emails, texts, and even phone calls, “are no substitute for face-to face contact.”
While the study only examined older Americans, researchers believe that similar results may be extrapolated to millennials as well. However, with young adults’ widespread adoption of various social media outlets, Teo is curious as to the effects of Facebook, Twitter, and other platforms on feelings of depression, anxiety, and isolation.
“In one of my next studies,” he said, “I am now trying to measure all different types of social media use to see how that plays out with mental health outcomes, particularly in younger adults.”
So take note, friends. The next time you’re sharing a laugh or a gif via text or email, consider actually sharing some time in person. You may just put yourself in a better mood by doing so.
