Ruby Encrusted - Daily Reminder # 127

Well, the Fall season has offered me some more reds, so today's daily reminder is that there is beauty all around us all the time if we only remember to look for it.  In fall, much of it has touches of orange and yellow and red and makes it perfect for Mary the Teach's (Work of the Poet)  wonderful Ruby Tuesday meme where one can see wonderful reds from fruits to flower to art to... who knows what... from all around the world. Check it out... or join in. It's fun.

Kind of a re-run of last week... bits of red amid the yellows and greens of Fall....

Some things I'm grateful for today:

  • indoor plumbing
  • my cats
  • Fall Colors 
  • All colors
  • electricity
  • coffee
  • yogurt
  • sesame chips
  • thermal windows
  • my camera
  • my friends
  • my nieces & nephew
  • Life
I wouldn't normally  mix something like this in with Ruby Tuesday, but couldn't find this video to post, and I think this is a story that should be seen by as many people as possible.  Any Americans thinking of not voting, or of voting for the Tea Party folks, please watch this video about the Tennesee community whose Libertarian values allowed someone's home to burn to the ground with 4 animals inside because he hadn't paid a special $75 fee. When the fire spread to the neighbor's home, they came and doused that fire but refused to take any action for his neighbor. Over $75. This is the promise of the libertarians and the Tea Party. It scares me

 Have a Wonderful Day
May You be Wrapped in Beauty

Thanks for your comment :-)
Ruby is one of autumn's many colors. Beautiful pictures.

Wow, look how much your hillside has changed in a week!
We don't have the reds so much yet but it has been cooler the last few days so maybe that will help.
When I see your gratitude lists I always stop and think if I've been thankful each day.

What a big groundhog the guy below is.

Beautiful fall colors. I don't miss winter at all, but I do miss the fall foliage.

My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

I'm impressed by your mighty hillside view.
Makes me want to go home, to my birthplace that is.
I'm scared when a democracy is reduced to freedom to avoid taxes and let the poor people look out for themselves.

the Tea Party is all over my town, they have a darling who won the primary and is now trotting round town spewing her crap and far too many are eating it up

something tells me I'll be getting into a few "discussions" between now and election day
