My neighbor in back was flinging large boards around this morning, so I wasn’t aware of any other shaking.
Curious about what Getty scouts are pulling off the flickr archive? Here you go. (Hint: they all tend to have that real polished look. Well, of course.) And no one said they were cheap.
There is no word for autism in the Somali language. Some are calling it the ‘American disease’.
One of the old birdhouses I put by the feeding station is a subject of great interest from a female wren. She popped in and out of the very small hole (the lower entrance is blocked by the twigs of a former tenant) a couple of days ago. Today, she is back with a beak full of nesting material. However, her mate seems to have talked her out of settling in, although with a major food supply right outside the front door, it really can’t be beat.
Not having seen a romantic movie in a long, long time, I went into this knowing reviews were tepid. However, Richard Gere is aging well, and I got through 2/3 of the movie before complaining that it was getting too Nicholas Sparky, mostly because I kept hoping it would get better.

In line to pay, I glanced over to where a clerk or buyer was squatting on the floor in front of some merchandise. Her jeans were riding dangerously low and in grave danger of leaving her body altogether.
Isn’t that a little uncomfortable? Are people actually designing garments to accommodate this problem?
He has gotten more used to my being so close by. Mrs. Towhee regularly chases him off, so I don’t have a really high opinion of him, but notice that the two of them put away a huge amount of seed. He still turns his back if I watch too closely.
From their comings and goings, they seem to live in the arbovitae.
Watched the first half last night, finished up tonight. I had steeled myself for massive amounts of violence, and was pleasantly surprised.
For dinner, I took last night’s tri tip, sliced it up and briefly cooked it with potatoes, onions, carrots and cauliflower. Because I put the onions under the meat as it roasted, they had some added punch. The carrots were roasted today, and I’m afraid I ate a goodly amount of them before they could be added. Thanks, Chris, for introducing us to roasted vegetables.

After finding drunken patients, hospitals in the UK have removed the hand cleaning dispensers. Despite the horrible taste, imbibers managed to down the gel by mixing it with juice or soft drinks. Why would someone sick enough to be in a hospital do this?
The stuff is 75 proof.
