Been a busy weekend, on the road bright and early Saturday morning to the  2010 Konza Prairie docent roundup. An annual get together of docents planning on guiding tours and leading learning sessions this coming year at Konza. As time goes on I will get into more detail on the goings on at the KPBS. Starting in March it will be a busy place with group tours, hands on classes for for schools, grade through high. It’s wonderful to see such an interest in the tallgrass prairie. If you ever wonder if any money that goes to universities and or the Nature Conservancy is spent wisely, I can tell you from experience Kansas State University and The Nature Conservancy are a saving grace for the tallgrass prairie that so many know so little about. It’s an honor to part of the helping effort to education and protect such a valuable natural resource.

Ok, for today’s daily pic, which is getting on here rather late due to more work going on today is from the backyard of The Shabbi Shack. As time goes on you may be hearing more about TSS. In a nutshell it is a scrapbook retreat owned and ran by my wife Bobbi and her business partner and friend Shannon, hence the name “Shabbi”. I have been working on getting some prints made, framed and delivered and will be trying to finish hanging tomorrow. I arrived just as the sun was setting tonight and couldn’t help but grab my Nikon coolpix P80 that if you recall is now my “carry all the time everywhere” camera and enjoy a few photographs of the setting sun silhouetting the grain elevator.  A rather Kansas looking picture I believe.

Hope everyone has a great start to the week.

Please remember to take care of your natural resources and they will take care of you.
