BIRDS, GARDENS AND DUST BALLS



  • That is me in the front of the caterpillar yesterday during the "All Species Day Parade" in nearby Brunswick. (I had lots of trouble seeing where I was going.) Friend, and former housemate, Maureen Block organized the second annual event to honor the species of the planet. This year special emphasis was on the declining bird population. Hundreds of people, especially children, turned out for the parade. Very colorful, great energy, and well organized. It just goes to show that there are indeed people out there who will turn out for something worthwhile on the streets. Nice to see.


  • You might have noticed that this blog was acting strange for a day or so. The blog server company was doing some maintenance and removed a couple days worth of posts for some unknown reason. But they finally put them back and all seems to be back on track now. The train is back on schedule.


  • It's spring cleaning time this weekend at the Addams-Melman House. We've got some garden planting to do and then back inside the house as rain is expected all weekend so we will tackle the winter's dust and debris. No meetings, no protests, just good old fashioned back breaking cleaning. Wish us well - or grab your bucket and come join us!
