Red Squirrels

This cute little baby just jumped up onto my lap this morning...looking for his momma I expect. She no doubt told him to get out of the house while he still knows everything! He was awfully hungry and thirsty! I could not really abandon him outside since it was snow mixed with drizzle out there right now. He would have just keeled over and perished. So I caged him and gave him some water and granola and a bed for the night.
He was very lethargic and slow can see that in the pictures above. Normally a squirrel would be moving too fast to register on a film! Very hungry....almost skin and bones!
So this little fella is a pet for now....and I'll let him out into the pumpkin patch when the weather turns milder. There are still lots of seeds left over from the great pumpkin massacre for a little fellow like that to snack on.

He looks rather field mouse like...except for his size....and the beginnings of what will be a very bushy tail. And those clawed feet! Oh my! The red squirrels are really pretty, and all in all are smaller than the usual run of squirrels around here. You can see the red just coming in at the back of his head.

John Tams...Over the Hills

This is the tune I am working on. Trying to get the words right.

Trouble is, I get into grooving it so much that I forget that I am trying to memorize it!!!

Thats good right?

(Turn up up louder!)

Aimee's 12 pair of legs

Aimee Mullins, the inventor of the "cheetah" legs for amputees talks about future plans.

And on a related note...all you "Starship Troopers" out there can take heart in this talk about human augmentation.

The guy's name is Bender! No kidding!

Another pair of jaw droppers from the TED talks.
