flickr is pretty cool. there are millions of 'groups' people have started where anybody can add pictures so you get these global photo albums full of similar subjects. there's a group for photos of cavalier king charles spaniels, for instance.
and one for "Dogs that Lay Like Frogs"
lay vs lie grammar aside, superman dogs are fun to look at

one of the coolest things i got for christmas this year was from mappy camper - it's a paper box with scores of words on little pieces of paper inside, and every morning i shake it around & pull out a couple & think about it. for instance, yesterday (black widow hunting) i got "courage" and "flexibility." today's were 'responsibility' and 'abundance' and i think the lesson to teach myself in this situation is to take 'responsibility' for my dogs and self by staying here, and don't worry there will be an 'abundance' of tea leaf green shows in north carolina, south carolina, tennessee, georgia, and/or virginia that i will be able to get to in '08.
cool present, isn't it?

The Magic Carpet
I went to the north pole, and a raindeer bit my arm! I liked it there but it was freezing and i frogot a coat or a sweater all I brought was shorts and t-shirts. Then I took a sleigh ride. Then I went home on the way i ate some cloud, and then Thump! it started thundering and raining and I forgot and unbrella so I got soaked. The End.

this map kicks so much ass. i didn't realize where all these places were until i saw them lined up with elevation relief. i can't help getting lost in it, looking at all the town names thinking "who were they?" (who named the town, who settled the town, who's living there now? what are they doing?)

i recently watched a movie "The World's Best Prom" about the 2000 senior prom in Racine, Wisconsin. i thought it was excellent, very real, and showed a rare true positive side of the kids of today. compared to shows like 'my super sweet 16' and the rest of that bratty nonsense, most of these kids were thoughtful and decent. they all had dreams and expectations and it was great to see how the reality of the event went down.
it may have been extra interesting to me because i just went to racine for a kitshicker wedding this summer, as the lovely bride and a kitshicking bridesmaid hailed from that very town, though they graduated the year before this documentary was made.
i recommend netflixing this documentary.

the weather channel says an ice storm has glazed america's midsection. people have died in traffic accidents, power has been out and will be out in some places for over a week. here's wishing for a speedy back to normal for those affected.
the winter winds may be blowing my own travel plans astray for this weekend, we'll see.
"The Snow Miser Song"

I'm Mister Snow
I'm Mister Icicle
I'm Mister Ten Below
Friends call me Snow Miser
What ever I touch
Turns to snow in my clutch
I'm too much!

If I said what animal eats bones? You would think of dogs but theres a bird called a Lammergeyer that eats bones too! Its four feet (2.7m) First they wait for a other animals to eat the meat. Then it swoop^s down over the mountains and picks up some bones. Then it goes way up high in the sky and drops the bones down and the bone skatters all over! Then the Lammergeyer comes back down and eats it. It also eats the meat, blud and skin!
The Lammergeyer lives in Africa, Asia, and southern Europe in caves and nests on clifs.
