Thanks guys! Ross, I love talent, too. After his Christmas visit during sophomore year of college, I mentioned to Goober that he should switch his major from physics to photography. He pooh-poohed it and said that taking pictures was just a hobby. If only he had listened...

It was out birthdays last week so we treated ourselves to a fancy restaurant. The food was awesome but I don't understand why the more expensive a place is the smaller the portion. Click image for larger version

Happy Birthday to you both!

Awesome meals - and yes,

I heartily agree, more expensive the less you get.

Love "my" birdies!

Since I spend way too much time standing at the kitchen sink and counter area, I have a large spread of bird feeders outside the window. From there I can watch all kinds of birds - and the ever-present furry squirrels that love hanging from the feeders. While prepping ingredients for tonight's dinner, I had a male American Goldfinch fly up to the window, probably less than six inches from the glass! It wasn't like he didn't register "danger" and flew quickly. Instead, he moved slowly and carefully, and then hovered in place and just looked at...me? Or his reflection? I like to think that it was his way to thank me for the daily buffet I set out for him and his feather friends. Either way, it was pretty neat!

I suppose I should be annoyed, but chipmunks are so cute! Voracious eater, though.
