It has been over 6 months now that I have not used my credit cards and it feels so great. I will have paid off about $2,000 by the end of this month.
It truly excites me to think that I have paid off what would be two $1,000 bills by the end of this month. I can’t say I have ever seen a 1,000 bill in person. I have held that ammount and more but only in the form of $1oo bills. If you end up with a $1000 bill just know that it is worth more then $1,000 because the federal reserve stopped making them in the 1930′s/40′s. If I were to have admired my dollars in person before paying off the plastic factories I would have had a stack of 20 $100 bills or a swimming pool full of change like scrooge Mcduck from Ducktales. Each bill weighs about 1 gram. It excites me to know the weight of each bill. It feels so great to know that I am a stack of twenty $100 bills and 20grams closer to being done with owing money to the beasts!
This got me thinking and wondering about what things in the world weigh 20grams. This is how I discoverd that one of the largest humming birds weighs in at about 20 grams. To find out more check out this site on the Berkely Science Review. This is a pic. that I found of the hummingbirds that weight 20 grams, which is much more then the weight of the average hummingbird.
The average Humming bird weighs between 2 and 6 grams. I was lucky enough to have been able to catch a photograph of a humming bird for the first time and wrote a blog a few months back called “Qi gong with the Hummingbird”. You can purchase this photo I took of a humming bird through Paypal

I leave you with some instagram photos most of them I took while commuting on my bike when my van was down and out! Who knows what the future of photography is going to look like once we are all wearing instagram glasses and google glasses.
Bike lane Frog. Photo of a frog I found in the bike lane after leaving work and on my way to the bank. It was one of the hottest days out in Florida up in the upper 90′s feeling like the 100′s but I made myself turn around and inspect this creature a little more closely and that is how I got this picture.
Entangled Snake! Photograph of a snake that I found one day when I walked down to water the garden. Luckily my skilled neighbor saved him by cutting him/her out of this entanglement.
I took this photo on my way to work one day. There were 2 snakes down in the bike lane.
