Thousands of miles into the sky, a group of satellites hover above the Gulf of Mexico. If you were on the Space Shuttle and saw them, you'd think that they were just another group of satellites doing whatever in space.

But these are no ordinary satellites.

No; they are prized and valuable pieces of equipment for millions of Americans. The continued normality of their lives often depends on the proper operation of them. They depend on these satellites for their delivery of Fox News Channel, A&E, Discovery Channel, and, for some, PaxTV (or "i", or whatever it's called these days).

In one backyard, this small swath of opening from the trees provides all the space needed to comfortably allow the signals to reach a small instrument that picks up these signals, and relays them into the corresponding house.

We don't get snow all that often in southern MD so when we do we make sure to take the dogs out back and let them run around (or run around as well as they can while still leashed).

Had to lighten up the pic pretty good to get the detail of Kurt to show up and that kinda washed out any detail of snow... looks like the pic was taken on Venus.

But I digress.

I didn't take anything for this contest so here are some old ones. These are what my fields and woods look like from my back door.

This is our branch of the Union River... about 300 feet from the back deck. Nice spring waterfall.

Heres what I like to do in my backyard.

Smoked Salmon... yummy! Great for fish dip... guaranteed to break the ice at parties!
