Wednesday..with and without words..

Outdoor Wednesday logo

My thoughts are of home..
Images imprinted in my mind..
Of the way we were..
April 20,2010

quote from today's Washington Post:
 Shares in BP PLC rose slightly on Wednesday as analysts suggested the 20 billion pound ($30 billion) plummet in the company's value since the Gulf of Mexico oil spill has been overdone.

Analysts said its unlikely that BP will have to cut its dividend as a result of the accident and expect the London-based company's final clean up and damages bill to be lower than the recent loss of share value.

"BP has had a torrid time over the last few days, as the market assesses the potential impact of the spill in the Gulf of Mexico on the company," it said in a note. "Although we believe that this is not a good event, we believe that the market reaction to this event has been overdone." 
'nuff said..

  1. Lovely images. Hopefully the oil disaster will be less damaging than expected. Nature depends on that! ~ Angela

  2. Ah, gorgeous, yummy, what can I say, love your pics!!

  3. And I just read that quote..., and they're still thinking about profit!! You might want to check out Renees post and share your thoughts, I've posted a link on Daily Vitamin Sea.

  4. Beautiful pictures, Loui ... and encouraging news.

  5. Our lands (I live in Loosiana) are so beautiful. Our bounties are full...minus our education system. How can it be that twice in 5 yrs, we will feel devastation?? I have friends who are losing their whole lifetime of bounty (gulf fishing families) because of the oil spill. AFTER recovering from Katrina.
    Albeit, the oil company truly never intends for anything like this to ever has. And they should help these people come back yet again....not worry so much about their profits. Off my soapbox now.
    Lovely pics, Louie. Love your site!!

  6. Oh dear Louie, this spill is breaking my heart, just as I know it is yours.

    Gee, so happy to hear their clean up and damages bill will be less than expected — NOT!
    Wish we could say the same for those who make a living off our shores and the impact on our wildlife and environment!


welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
