Houston, We Have a Birdhouse

BirdhouseThe birdhouse is up, and we're ready to go. You may ask, "Where are the holes to get inside it?" This is a Purple Martin birdhouse, and the Martins are just headed to South America around now. With these houses, you plug the holes during the "off season" so that the more aggressive birds don't take up residence.

Pop Culture on Paper

Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. DarthMovie & TV fans everywhere, there's a book you must read: Dear Luke, We Need to Talk. Darth by John Moe.  Who knew there was more to the story of our favorite shows, such as the journal the shark from Jaws kept for therapy purposes.  Or the updates from Special Agent Gilligan on his "Island Project".  I'm most looking forward to seeing the meeting minutes from the Jurassic Park dinosaurs on how to best open the facility.
