        The inscription under the statue of Edward VII in Phillip's Square, Montreal. Here's a video of the place.     Funny, we don't really look at statues or monuments. They are a kind of 3-D wallpaper. And we only read the inscriptions when we are tourists...

For over fifteen years I’ve hiked the same trails, encountering many mammals, insects, reptiles and birds. One of my favorite encounters is the roadrunner. Here, in Southern California, the breed is known as the Greater Roadrunner, taxonomically classification: Geococcyx Californianus, meaning "...

I'm always on the look out for a great quote. I saw a wonderful one yesterday (there was no attribute; else I would cite it).

I stumbled across a website the other day—termite-revolution.com—and downloaded a tract titled “You Are Not a Termite” which seems aimed at consumers.  Regardless, the piece defies desciption, yet manages to raise important questions about almost everything people worry about in today’s global...
