HA! That's good! I'm sure you read lots of boring stuff to get the good stuff, or do you? Hmm.

Meant to call you and tell you to come over and check out our Cedar Waxwings. We had around fifty flitting around the trees the other day. I couldn't even get a good picture of them either, just fuzzy.

"And they all looked away from me on the bench there...then I said, "And creating a nuisance," and they all came back!"

I LOVE that song!

Jennifer -- I do want to see the cedar waxwings!

Ann -- Great song. And everyone will be able to hear it tomorrow and five million stations...

This is so true. Community service really does just address picking up garbage. Well, and your ability not to use your garbage-picker to stab an authority figure who just happens to ALWAYS act like an asshole.

Or so I've heard.

So, the cleaner the community, the more drunks the community has out picking up the garbage. There should be a study on alcoholism and road side trash.
