Well someone’s been making a little something, haven’t they? These beauties are in a nest on the craft-room porch. Spotted today April 28, 2012 ~ I will keep a close watch on them and report back! Birds have been a big feature of my Spring on Quadra, as we have no cable. lol. I’m stoked to watch these hatch! From the hot tub, we spotted the momma heading into the nest. And last night, I was prompted by my friend Berry on Haida Gwaii (via FBK) to buy the Audobon APP for $1 (usually $20 usually) as it was John Audobon’s birthday yesterday. I added it from iTunes and fell asleep learning that Robin’s are in the thrush family. Then today I spy Robin eggs! In the hot tub I was sure I was seeing Robin’s mating and wondered if the App showed mating rituals? i’ll keep you posted.
((PS. while writing this post – I had to get up and got outside to photograph a woodpecker on the large Maple Tree outside the window. On my way out I spotted a baby NEWT on our doorstep. Photos of those gems tomorrow. Jen-Geographic to the rescue!))
MADMEN season 5 ~deliciousness! The episode we watched last night (thanks sweety for getting these) was just awesome. If you know me, you know I love the modern clean but vintage feel of this entire show. The clothes, furniture and the unravelling development of womyn’s lib in corporate America (& Canada) is fascinating. This song will be permanently embedded in your memory. You’re Welcome.
Here’s the 1962 original it was based on by Gillian Hills Interestingly the commercial beforehand is anti-Steve Harper = yeah!
And just becasue it’s random and violent yet very creative. I found this when I first searched for the ZOU.
