          about 2 miles from my home. I was returning from the cities, turned the corner and there it was.

          92. It was 1 year ago to the day we stood over freeway with lit Bernie signs

          As a matter of fact, same guy who did the signs is same guy in photo “Never Hillary” sheet holding “Jill 2016” sign.

          It was damn cold when we did this. But it is 1 year ago today.

      3. Aurora and clouds

      This is Pt. Woronzof, about a mile from where I live.  The streaks are airplanes – our airport is kind of behind where I was standing here.  I think this was in August.

        I think I saw some of these on Facebook? Not on it anymore so I can’t check.

        Seeing the northern lights in Alaska is pretty high up on my bucket list.

        No wonder people live there. That’s just beyond beautiful.

          19. This was a good time of year, too

          before it gets too cold.  Deeper into the winter, the clear nights are generally pretty chilly.   When the temperatures rise, the clouds roll in.

          I might have posted pictures from this night here earlier.

            25. Well, I for one wouldn't mind if you post them even more often.

            Northern lights are at the very top of my bucket list. And I’m not alone on that.

            Thanks for the pics.

            38. Oh, maybe it was here!

            Feel free to post them anytime, anywhere, on JPR. They’re stunning.

            My favorite Bernie button was one @revolutionary made for the Alaska caucus. It has the northern lights as the background.

            I saw the northern lights one time. It was in central Illinois when I was driving to Kentucky. For miles I thought I must be seeing the lights  a fire (they were all red) or something from a town on the clouds. But after a few miles, I realized it could not be. And I was able to see stars then too.

            I thought it must be the northern lights but I was in central Illinois. Made no sense.

            About a half hour later, whatever radio station I had on confirmed it was the northern lights.

            But it was nothing like your picture

            Thank you for sharing this.

              I love twerking @deadpool The problem is it gives people headaches. Especially people who have migraines.

              I told him before it’s okay for a short while. So, no banning today. But watch yourself! :lol:

                      But there is a whole ton of shit you can do WITH @deadpool.

      Later that year, the boat/wreck was damaged by fire.

          65. I did take this one.

          It’s still there, but just further damaged by fire. Some idiot (photographer) set off fireworks behind it in attempting to do a night shot. Wind blew sparks onto the dry, rotten wood.

          Here’s one I took several years before. You can see how it has deteriorated in the color one.

            Donors have an easy way to add pictures. If we didn’t, I would never be able to do it. I’m computer illiterate.

            Just save the picture you want to post to your computer, phone or tablet. Then click the “Add Media” button at the top left of the post. Then click “upload file” (or whatever it says. Maybe upload media) Then you choose the picture, click go or whatever, it uploads it. The click “insert” and voila! It’s in the post!

      81. I building I pass when I have to go to a post office

      It was included in a the latest local newsletter put out by a friend of mine I used to work with when I was still able to be involved in local activism

      It took an entire title page and was captioned:

      Shuttered train terminal in Buffalo, Population is 261,310 and 30.7% live below the poverty level.

      I scanned it in and is a reminder not only of where I live and the decay of my once great city, it is also currently the desktop background of my laptop. The newsletter itself  was reacting to the latest census statistic that reveals half of Buffalo’s children live in poverty and was basically a call to arms for still active members to consider ways to deal with this reality, so far (although I am not in the loop as I used to be) no concrete actions have been planned to my knowledge. It has been covered in sources I can link to, but off-hand the only one I can find by perusing my browser history is this one. (I don’t much care for this site in general, as business interests in Buffalo are far from altruistic and often scandalous, it does however provide some good information in this article.)

      This picture is my favorite of the year because it grounds me to my true mission which is to the people of this country that are being crushed  to service the extremely wealthy, it also reminds me of my neighborhood, I live only a few blocks from this site and in my scandalous youth, teanagers among them myself  used to unlawfully enter this building to drink and play what is now called “vintage rock”, but was new at the time, I haven’t been in it for an extremely long time, but once it was an incredibly beautiful building and still was in many ways if one ignored the graffiti and damaged bits.

        There’s all kinds of emotion wrapped in this picture. It’s hauntingly beautiful, sad as hell and tells a story that could rip your heart out.

        It’s great you know the background. I imagine that for the young ones, it’s just part of the scenery. But for your generation, and the generations surrounding you, it must just be sad.

                        128. 'Pool that twerking used to bother me when I first saw it.

                        Now it doesn’t bother me at all. How our perspectives change after a few months.

                        132. Now you know me better…

                        Compared to a few months ago.

                        137. I am sure you are right

                        That would make sense. I also understand the character since I’ve seen the movie too.

      If anybody has a copy of Jackpine Radicals, I’m with the fringe candidate image, please post it for me.

            112. Great choice

            It’s almost 2 years old now. Iconic. Wish Jim could see how popular that has become

            Thank you for the reminder.

              I’m touched (and probably in more ways than one).  Happy New Year, Mary!

                141. I thought it was yours!

                But I wasn’t positive.

                Sorry I couldn’t think of who.

                It’s fantastic art work. I’ll be putting up every Halloween

      138. Here's mine…

      I’m the short grey-haired woman with the big grin leaning on the barricade just to the right of the handsome black photographer.  This was at the University of Buffalo this year.

      Edited to add:

      The way the image displays here cuts me out of the photo.  (It shows fully in the uploaded version on my profile.)

        140. Awesome picture!

        You were pretty damn close to the man himself! So cool.

        That’s so weird that it doesn’t format the same on the profile media and here.

        Maybe there’s a way to edit it? Oh @deadpool do you know?Thank you for sharing this!

          142. There seems to be issues with JPR Media…

          Until Tech support can resolve it, I would suggest using image hosting sites to post.

        145. Beautiful picture.

        Both the scenery and the dog.

        Sounds like there’s a story behind this. Did you want to share? Don’t mean to push you.

        Don’t know where that is but it’s beautiful. Great photography too. Thank you for sharing this!

          146. For a long time there were three of us.

          Lacey my Chocolate lab, the matriarch,  Cole, my first black lab and me. We haunted the four acre wood behind my home every day in any kind of weather. We built a cabin together and spent hours just wandering, playing or sitting in the sun.

          Cole died unexpectedly in early fall at nine years old. I was devastated. I just couldn’t walk those walks. So Lacey and I found this greenway along the banks of the CT River and spent many months grieving and rebuilding. I came home with Duncan in summer and we 3 had good times together. When Lacey died a year after Cole, this is where Duncan and I spent afternoons until, once again, we’re back in the woods, watching the sun go down behind the hills in Vermont.

          That’s Mt Ascutney in the background. A popular local ski-place.  It’s a pretty hike in spring.

            147. Awe. I'm so sorry

            That’s a couple of hard losses. I’m so sorry.

            Thank you for sharing this. It’s a great story, even with the sadness.

            Beautiful up there. I’ve never been to northeast or northwest of the U.S. I really want to see both. I think I want to see Vermont next
