Here are some cute photos of animal moms and their babies to celebrate Mother’s Day. Elephants are pregnant for almost two years, and baby feeding happens near Mom’s armpits in the first two legs vs. the back with goats, cows, and horses. Hi Mom, look at this thing I found lying on the ground! ThisContinue reading “Happy Mother’s Day”

Part Nine Paradise Island It was snowing. People, boats, and cameras were getting wet, but the penguins were fine with the snow. Of course, I don’t speak penguin so maybe they were complaining about it. Paradise Island is where we saw dirty penguins; that’s not a euphemism; they do get dirty. Too much muck willContinue reading “Visiting Antarctica”

Sell Your Piss
Let me explain. Over the history of humankind, urine has been sold for industrial uses, dyeing cloth and saltpeter, and I’m sure there are more examples. The reason pee-pee was used for dyeing cloth is for the ammonia, which can create different hues of color and is a great binding agent (seals in color). WhenContinue reading “Sell Your Piss”
OK. I’m thinking of something orange, and it’s small.
The photo is from the Wilhelma Zoo in Stuttgart, Germany. The living reef with clownfish was lit with beautiful pink and purple lights to create this tranquil view; the clownfish also provided splashes of orange and white.

Like a Bruges Over Troubled Water
When you hear Canals, you think: of Itlay, Vegas, and Panama, but other places have scenic canals, and Bruges, Belgium is one of those places. Bruges also has french fries (Fried Potatoes or Chips) stands, delicious mussels, and every block has at least one chocolate store (might be legally required). I fell in love withContinue reading “Like a Bruges Over Troubled Water”

Are you looking at the horse or at the wind-blown tree? Are you looking at the tree now? The tree is permanently bent due to the strong winds on the southernmost point of Hawaii.

It doesn’t have a Red Belly.
Photo of a Red-bellied woodpecker (Melanerpes Carolinus) that doesn’t have a red-bellied (who names birds?) on the lookout for some bugs to eat. To be fair, there was a bird already named Red-Headed Woodpecker, and it has a tiny orange patch near its feet. Some of you might be wondering if it’s an orange featheredContinue reading “It doesn’t have a Red Belly.”

Death by Donut.
I haven’t been able to get out much, like many people this past year, so I’ve started working on indoor creativity. I now have two freshwater aquariums and one dry terrarium with succulents plants. My latest project started with Skulls in vintage wigs and has morphed into Skeletons in different art styles. See below TheContinue reading “Death by Donut.”
Random Thoughts: Practical Parental Advice
