Instead of posting anything new and worthwhile, I will just point out that blackberry season is in full swing, so I shall repost my video of Rosie stealing them from me. MORE Mojo! »

I can remember the first time I saw a wild turkey. We were renting a house in the middle of an industrial park--sort of this island of woods and fields in the middle of this huge airport industrial park, maybe half a mile from the airport. We had this very long half-a-mile driveway, and we were on our way out--the driveway dumped us in the middle of an aerospace contractor's parking lot--when we encountered this huge bird sitting in the middle of our driveway. It was way too big and ugly to be one of our chickens, and not ugly enough to be a turkey vulture. MORE Mojo! »

Two things, neither of them of any huge consequence. But Mojo enjoys her fretting.
First, ever since they've hatched, it has done nothing but RAIN TORRENTIALLY upon my helpless squirmy little spudlings. Mojo thinks this can't be good for them. Even if Mom sits on the nest and protects them--which she is--the little guys have to eat eventually. If they are like chickens they have a couple of days while they finish off the yolk so they don't have to eat (that's why chicken farms can ship them off and they can survive in the box). In fact when you get baby chicks through the mail the first thing you have to do is teach them how to drink. But these warbler nubbins aren't fully formed fluffballs, but instead nekkid little pink things that can't even raise their ginormous heads. MORE Mojo! »

So we've had the windows open for a week. And hence even if we wanted to sleep in--and today Mojo was a slugabed and slept in until 5:30, due to a stressful day yesterday--our feathered neighbors make sure we don't. First up is this fellow to the left: a pileated woodpecker. In addition to the very loud pecking--if they find a hollow tree they start to resemble a machine gun--the pileated has a very loud, alarming call similar to the sounds one hears in the movies when people are being chased by monsters in the jungle. All this noise comes from a fairly large bird, looks to be over a foot long. They are something to see, and to hear. BUT NOT AT FIVE IN THE MORNING. MORE Mojo! »

One line from The Simpsons that stands out for me as a good illustration of the stupidity of human beings is when Bart's dog ends up at the school and all the kids in Bart's class gather around to make a big fuss of him. At one point the dog sneezes, and one of the kids says something like "Oh, look! He sneezed!" which causes the teacher, Mrs. Krabapple, to exclaim "Hah! He thinks he's people!" MORE Mojo! »
