Bought some peanuts in the shell to keep the squirrels happy and away from the birdfeeders.  It worked and made for a delighted squirrel, but look who else picked up a peanut (though they did drop them)!

Snow Squirrel

This little critter appeared below the bird feeder this morning and seems to have found a little bit of seed on the ground to enjoy.

And yes, he did jump up onto the feeder in an effort to grab some more.

Florence, Italy

In January 2008 I was fortunate enough to take a trip to Rome, Italy.  For fun, we arranged a one-day trip to Florence.  There are not enough words to describe how wonderful the country and the people are.  Oh, but the food, it is exquisite.  Today I used some new software on one of my favorite pictures of the Arno River in Florence and this is the result.
