Friedrich Nietzsche once said “ those dancing were once considered insane by those who couldn’t hear the music “ we associate him with nihilism but this could have been said by Little Richard

He also said, in Also Sprach Zarathustra:

"Sollte es denn möglich sein! Dieser alte Heilige hat in seinem Walde noch Nichts davon gehört, dass Gott todt ist!“

which is one of his most famous quotes.

Nicht todt, heutzutage vielleicht etwas schwer zu finden.

Google can also translate it for you.

A lot of Nietzsche's writings (especially his later ones) use simple, poetic language, and so he is much easier to comprehend than someone like Hegel or Schopenhauer.

My wife and son were fascinated by the show on the rise of AOC, on Netflix I believe. I might catch it.


Also a PBS special on Alex Jones and how Trump and the RW have come to embrace conspiracy theorists and fake news.

OH- I have to share this. I have a new friend. I call her "The lady". She comes almost every day to see me. I give her treats and she is coming closer and closer, Yesterday she was about 3 feet from me;))

Please if you love her stop with the treats. It makes her a target when hunting or if there is a necessary culling because of overpopulation happens.

maifleur- she is living in a no hunting area. I live in the burbs.

As far as over population, we already have had that for years. I live with the herds;)

She mostly eats my Hostas.

You have to be careful on what you feed them. Their digestive track is pretty much set to what they eat in nature. People here feed them apples and bananas. I give them bread. She'll be eating out of your hand in no time. :^)

Please don't feed the deer. Here is what can happen even when you have good intentions.

Should be ok to feed them some hostas though.


Well, maybe not from Margo’s point of view, but the deer are good with it!!!

For dessert? nyuk.

Deer pass through our yard nightly here, watch them on the camera recording every morning. I place some chicken wire on the ground around what I don't want them to eat as they cannot stand to walk on it. That leaves them to mainly munch on fallen fruits and the lower leaves of some fruit trees. My primary objection to deer (squirrels are much worse) is that they leave behind deer ticks in their wake. I've already been through one bout of Lyme disease, once was enough.

Garlic Mustard is what you will have in areas frequented by deer. Once established it is very difficult to eradicate.

We have a herd of 6-8 deer even though this is a city neighborhood. Some of my neighbors have huge lots. You'd think the deer would stay in those yards, but they don't. I asked a neighbor who has been here for decades if there were always deer. She said they came to stay when a former neighbor feed them and had a salt lick. Both are illegal in the city limits now. All of them will come within 10 or fewer feet of adult humans and cars. This morning I had to go out to a border to move two fauns along. One was tasting a fothergilia! The other was sniffing rhubarb. They weren't the least bit concerned about me until I was in swatting range. They won't live long unless they develop better survival instincts.

I was about to say your yard looked great, Margo, until I read further! So far so good, if she is alone. They get their own apples in my yard - and the hydrangea, and the hosta, and then they wake me up every night w sex screaming. See what you have to look forward to ? :))

We have loads of deer here. After planting all kinds of flowers, the only one that seems to be deer proof is marigolds. My yard is full of them (hence my name here). I find it easier not to fight them. This is a pic of one of the babies this year.

Marigold- those look like Shasta Daisies or some form of daisies, but not marigolds.

yes, you are right. I probably worded that badly. They stay away from the marigolds, so that is what I use around the house. The fawn is hiding in a field of oxeye daisies that grow wild

Individually deer are pretty, all babies are cute. But yeah, their population so easily gets out of hand and they overgraze the land, leading to a serious dearth of native plants. Now if we had enough wolves to go around ... no, that won't work in suburbia. There's answers we could live with but not enough of us care to learn about ecosystems.

Having grown up in southern Germany I'm used to deer being part of rural or small town life. If I recall correctly they were kept in check with regular hunts. We enjoyed watching them but never tried to entice them directly with food/treats. I do admit to allowing the key deer in the Keys to snag whatever they pleased from the outside breakfast table...

I would find it difficult to hunt anything that couldn't hunt me back. Aside from the ungodly screaming, I love having them ( the deer) about. Beautiful photos, you two - Margo, great landscaping job!

Sorry, Lars. :)

Margo and marigold, love your landscaping. We just moved outside the city semi-rural. Plenty of deer, last winter, sadly one probably got hurt and died on our property. I was beside myself, but neighbours told me to leave it as it would feed other wildlife, including coyotes. Of course, they were right.

I'll trade you deer for herds of wild pigs. I kinda like them though, and last night as I was out on the porch three teen pigs came through the bushes, crossed the yard, snorting and suffling, and quickly went out the other side towards their path home. They don't like to eat any of the flowers I have on ground level in pots, but all veggies must be in pots on a wall high up. Planting an in-ground veggie garden or aything with bulbs or tubers is asking for trouble. I try to tell passing neighbors to just let 'em be, as they're more scared of us than we are of them. The babies are sweet, the teens are, well, teenagers who get into all sorts of things and actually play, and the adults are big as a bus, but fairly placid unless you threaten their babies or frighten them...... just like us.

"marigold- another question. If your name is marigold , then why do you show a daisy as your avatar?"

Queenmargo, I am not sure it is relevant, but I like flowers, both marigolds and daisies. I could question you about your name. Are you royalty? Gay? Perhaps you just liked the sound of the name, and that is good enough for me. :)

I took the night off to sleep and see several comments about living in the burbs or in no hunting areas. I live in the burbs and until two years ago the woods across the street from me was closed in October through December for a bow hunt to thin the deer. When you start seeing ribs on the deer or they start developing diseases the state conservation department works with communities to reduce the population. I had 9 in one group and 11 young bucks in another group in my yard one night last winter. That is too many for them to stay healthy. Starving or having one of the hemorrhagic diseases that are common in this part of the state is not something that anyone wants to see. CWD is common 4-5 counties to the east-northeast of this one. Also something that you do not want.
