The expression “You get what you pay for” very much applies to wild bird seed.  If you buy the cheap (cheep - cheep) seed you will attract just a few species. If you spring for the good seed you get a much larger array of...

This afternoon one of my sister’s neighbors was walking his dog past her home when he noticed a dangerous electric line connection to her home.  He works for the electric company and made arrangements for an immediate repair.   We are our neighbor’s keeper.  And who...

We all know the expression “Let sleeping dogs lie.”  This evening it took on added meaning for me in a literal sense.  Our dog was (I thought) sound asleep when I said to my wife, “At 8 let’s go for a walk.”  An electric prod...

One of my students brought me a dandelion expressing how beautiful it was.  She was right.  It was glorious with its bright yellow petals splaying out in a perfect circle.  What surprised me was she did not know what it was.  She did not know...

While channel surfing this morning I came across an old Hopalong Cassidy film.  I had forgotten how wonderfully unrealistic they were.  Hoppy always shoots the gun out the bad guy’s hand without wounding it.  The bad guy’s bullets never hit anything the bad guy is...
