A Quality Time Turtle Update at The Georgia Sea Turtle Center

MQTlogoa A Quality time visit to the Georgia Sea Turtle Center

turtle1First Loggerhead Nest of the Season Found on Cumberland Island BRUNSWICK, Ga. (5/12/2014)

Loggerhead sea turtles may be slow on land, but give them this: When it comes to the start of nesting season, they tend to be on time. Georgia’s first loggerhead nest of 2014 was found at Cumberland Island on Friday, May 9. READ MORE

DSC_0104 Now a visit to:



The Georgia Sea Turtle Center on Jekyll Island Georgia






“Loggerhead turtles are susceptible to a number of threats, both natural and man-made. These threats include but are not limited to watercraft interaction, disease, cold stunning, predators (The main threats to Georgia sea turtles are nest predation by hogs, raccoons, and dogs,)  entanglement in passive fishing gear, incidental capture in commercial and recreational fisheries, light pollution, nesting habitat degradation and beach erosion.” READ MORE.. With problems like that you need a HOSPITAL FOR TURTLES… an integral part of the Georgia Sea Turtle Center.



I would like to introduce you to:DSC_0146 Flounder



I hope I’m not violating any HIPAA Privacy Rules LOL 



“The Georgia Sea Turtle Center is a hospital for ill and injured sea turtles, and we are the only hospital of its kind in Georgia! The Center is open to the public and offers an interactive Exhibit Gallery and Rehabilitation Pavilion, where guests can view our patients and witness their recovery process.” READ MORE

DSC_0145 Flounders surgery was successful. Dr. Beau Sasser (human orthopedic surgeon) and Lindsay Erickson (surgical tech) donated their equipment and time.


Meanwhile back at the beach:

Political Flogging of a Dead Horse


Flog a Dead Horse:::   To waste effort on something when there is no chance of succeeding.


However, Politicians have found more advanced strategies to use.

politician1 A few examples::::

1. Buying a stronger whip
2. Appointing a committee to study the horse
3. Changing riders
4. Arranging to visit other countries to see how other cultures flog dead horses.
5. Lowering the standards so that the dead horse can be included.
6. Reclassifying the dead horse as "living impaired".
7. Hiring outside contractors to flog the dead horse.
8. Harnessing several dead horses together to increase speed.
9. Proving additional funding to increase dead horse's performance.
10. Rewriting the expected performance requirement for all horses.
11. Promoting the dead horse to supervisory position.

JOHN1 The first recorded use of the expression in its modern sense was by the English politician and orator John Bright, referring to the Reform Act of 1867, which called for more democratic representation in Parliament. Trying to rouse Parliament from its apathy on the issue, he said in a speech, would be like trying to flog a dead horse to make it pull a load.

a1 Thanks for stopping by My Quality Time. We hope you were able to LOL

I’ll leave you with one last thought:: Why close the barn door after the horse is gone?

DSC_0103 A sundog at Great dunes Beach Jekyll Island Georgia.


Sundogs can be blindingly bright, at other times they are a mere colored smudge on the sky. If you are interested in the science of Sundogs READ MORE


  1. Red skies at night, sailors delight.
  2. Red sky in the morning, sailors take warning.


Several tales of the appearance of sundogs have existed in popular culture. Some say a sundog brings good luck when spotted on a long journey, others say it will bring a radical change in weather conditions, such as rain.


A birds eye view of the sky.


Sometimes you can’t see the sky if you are under a Georgia oak. LOL..
