That’s what I got, too. If you aren’t familiar with Bev Doolittle’s art, check it out at http://www.bevdoolottle.net.

Staring at that makes me feel a little disoriented and uncomfortable, so I'll just take your word for the count.

I was also singularly unsuccessful in finding the birds hidden in the series of paintings at Zoka's.

I haven’t seen those, yet. Another good reason to eat there, again!

There might be enough legs for six. I can’t figure that one out.

The artist, http://www.bevdoolittle.net always hides animals inside her paintings while they are beautiful as a whole. She has a series of six that are very similar to the one above. I would love to have those if I had a place to hang them. I will try to find a photo.

I need help this time.

I've tried (a lot) to research this one, and all I came up with is that it's in Afghanistan and may be associated with Lapis Lazuli. Nothing further that I can find.
Or it's the Sambatyon River described in rabbinical literature (unlikely).

Regardless, it's fascinating.

Interesting, indeed. I don’t know why, but it’s a little chilling (i.e., creepy).

A few random nuggets of knowledge:

An adult bear can run as fast as a horse.

Dueling is legal in Paraguay as long as both parties are registered blood donors.

Peanuts are one of the ingredients in dynamite.

Coca-Cola was green at first. Also, people say it had cocaine in it. What do you think?

Here’s a warning for DP: In Cleveland, Ohio it is illegal to catch a :vole: without a hunting license.


What subjects are you guys interested in: wild nature? animals? earth? geology? technology? American history? other? surprise me?
