A note from the NYFalls.com founder:
Due to a company restructuring, I will be losing my full time job soon. Although it saddens me to leave the company that I have helped build up for the last 14 years to the success it is today, I am looking forward to new opportunities. I am known for my technical, managerial, and creative abilities, and I hope to utilize all of those talents in my next career. I put together a résumé outlining my skills and projects. Please have a look. Although I am open to any management position, I would like to leverage my experience and success with NYFalls.com and NYHistoric.com into a career in the WNY travel/tourism industry. If you know of a company that would benefit from someone with talents and experience, please spread the word. Thank you for your help and support.
Here is my Resume | Discussion topic

Great shot Matt :up: :up:

what about squirrels?
Do you feed them in your garden?

I have many squirrels and last year they dug out all my flower bulbs. I wasn't very happy about it.
So if I feed them, maybe they leave my flower bulbs alone ;)
And what should I leave for them? Nuts? Corn? In some stores you can buy special things for squirrels, but I guess the regular nuts and corn will also be fine?

Squirrels are enemy #1 in my book. We spend quite a bit of energy trying to keep them away from the goodies we put out for the birds. And personally I wouldn't spend one cent on feeding them. :beatbat:

that's what I did last year. And they got all my flower bulbs :evil:
My idea was to give them something to eat so they neglect my flowers and the feeders.
But I'm not sure if that will really help

Great shot with excellent detail!
i wonder what the purpose of the tail position like that is when they eat... there must be a reason.

I have two squirrels, that are emptying my birdfeeders on a regular basis. But okay, so far they haven't been to my flower bulbs :D
Here are some of the shots I took out of the window.
