The Saturday Picture Show, April 11, 2015

This is the tree they call The President. The giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall, measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume, and is an estimated 3,200 years old.
Say hi to Joel Burger and Ashley King from Springfield IL - they're getting married in July! And guess which fast-food chain is picking up the tab for the whole shindig! And you have to love his pretzel shirt.
I wouldn't bet against a mama lion when it comes to taking care of her kids!
Ever look at a trail across a big field and wonder who blazed it first, and when?  I do, too.
If you love popcorn like I do, try this - forget those packages of microwave popcorn
(look at all those nasty ingredients) and throw some kernels in a brown paper lunch
sack, like the one they put your six-pack in.  Fold over the top and nuke it.  That's it!
Then add salt, butter, cheese, whatever you fancy.  It tastes better, too!

I have a reproduction of this old radio from the 1930's and I love to listen to the oldtime radio shows on it.  Think of the days before TV when the entire family would gather around a wooden box and be thrilled to hear soap operas, comedy/variety shows and stuff like The Lone Ranger!  When radio was really radio...

I don't know how this was created, or even what's burning, but a heart afire is always good.
Sometimes, when life seems to be an endless vista of buildings and billboards and cars and malls and people pushing and shoving, it's good to remember there are places like this on earth.
