Streaming nature cams: Naturally beautiful

December 4th, 2021

Did you know we’ve got some very famous feathered friends in So Cal? We do! Their names are Jackie and Shadow — the bald eagle couple made famous around the world on the Friends of Big Bear Valley live nest cam. Here you can get a unique glimpse into the nesting habits and day to night life of these stunning creatures. They chose a perfect spot for their nest that includes a beautiful view of the lake and surrounding forest-covered hills. The cam is on 24/7 because an eagle’s work is never done. The night camera is crisp and clean and does not disturb the eagles. This unique access to the nest cam lets you follow our feathered couple, hear the other feathered friends, watch them take care of their eggs, and catch stunning and colorful sunrises and sunsets. There’s also another cam set up for a wide view. The commentators share fun eagle and nature facts about the area too. Friends of Big Bear Valley is a non-profit 501c3 organization and their website includes an online shop where you can buy cute eagle items and support this worthy local organization and do some holiday shopping at the same time.

The meaning behind Veterans Day

November 11th, 2021

Memorial Day’s purpose is to honor military members who have died, while Veterans Day recognizes the service of ALL America’s veterans (those who have served or are serving.) It’s an important day to reflect on the brave men, women, and families who have shown such courage and provided us with a real example of bravery. Veterans day has a long history going all the way back to 1918. Where on “the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month, an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, was declared between the Allied nations and Germany in World War I, then known as the Great War.” It became a Federal holiday in 1938. Every year at 11am on November 11th, a wreath is laid at the tomb of the unknown soldiers at Arlington National Cemetery. On behalf of everyone at NoHo Senior Arts Colony, thank you to all veterans past and present for serving our nation.
