Ramona is here

(viewed 842 times)
We've been waiting for Ramona for a while and she finally arrived. Oscar thinks being a big brother is pretty good, so far. Our family has always been boys. As her uncle Andy said, 'A girl? What do we know about girls? What do we do with her?' Ramona is two days old, and she's a champion sleeper. I think she's terrific.

moth on flower

(viewed 1390 times)
Orange-patched Smoky Moth -- Pyromorpha dimidiata on Liatris cylindricea. I know nothing about insects, except there are an awful lot of them involved with plants so I better get used to them. This moth and I spent a lovely evening hanging around the liatris so I photographed it. I even found its name by pure chance.

it's a swamp, it's a swamp rose

Up until now, I had never seen a swamp rose, Rosa palustris, but now I have.

I'm trying to get my mojo back, trying to find the zen of it all.

the police abandoned their cars

(viewed 1047 times)
so people got in and were like kids, pushing the siren button, getting on the microphone, flashing the lights. And when the battery ran out, they torched them. So far, I think 6 police cars have been burned. In Montreal in 2008, in a hockey riot, they burned 16 cars. And it wasn't even a g20.

just try talking to a guy in full riot gear. He can't talk anyway because he's got his gas mask on.
