Zoom!

 
 
I bought a new zoom lens for my Canon XTi. Just got it yesterday and I'm already loving it. Skittish wildlife is suddenly soooo much more accessible.

Cattle Compass

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/science/nature/7575459.stm I do appreciate odd studies like these, but often question their conclusions. Rather than the animals having a magnetic need to face north or south, couldn't it be that they are simply trying to get the greater bodily sun coverage? I would think the widest part of the cow would get better sun if facing west/east throughout the entire day? Maybe they tend to follow fencelines? Who knows for sure. It's interesting nonetheless.

If you need a reason NOT to watch the Olympics

This should do it: http://www.wsj.com/article/SB121885240984946511.html Apparently, in the athlete's dorms and in the press center, any...and I mean ANY... logo of a non-Olympic sponsor is to be covered with masking tape. Elevators, microphones, etc. Just ridiculous. It's just another sign that the Olympics are NOT about international loving, hugging, butt-slapping competition, but instead it's all about money, money, money. And you know, whereever big money goes, you can pretty much guarantee corruption. Yeah, don't bother watching it on television. The stank of corruption is always present with the Olympics, but it's even getting stankier as I get older and *cough* wiser.

Moon over San Francisco.



It's just chock full of Star Wars goodness.

Maybe the synthroid is kicking in!

I've posted this week's FLASHBACK! photo selection of the week only five days after the last issue. Maybe the new synthroid dose is actually working?! Eh, maybe. For this week's FLASHBACK!(older photos from my collections in celebration of the site's 10th anniversary at catay.com) we're going back to 2002. Hold on to your seats while we trip back in time....

Happy 8-8-8!

 
It seemed 8's were everywhere you looked at the BBQ tonight. Crazy! Eights that is.
