Those are the names given to the San Antonio Zoo’s  two-headed turtle,  which now has its very own Facebook page.

Nanny Bloomberg loses again…

leave a comment »

An appeals court has thankfully  struck down  New York Mayor Bloomberg’s idiotic  ban on large sodas.   God knows what new target he’ll come up with next.

Too patriotic…

leave a comment »

You’d think the 9/11 Memorial Museum would want to include a patriotic photograph,  but the museum’s creative director thought it was  too rah-rah American.   Last time I checked,  September 11th didn’t happen in Somalia or Spain,  but in the United States of America.   Personally, I abhor having a museum to celebrate a disaster, but if you’re going to have one,  make it in your face, blatantly and blessedly American, complete with firemen and cops and the Stars and Stripes,  and even a cross.

UPDATE:   One of the firemen  in the photograph was asked what he thought of the dust-up.

Canine shadowboxer…

leave a comment »

Big Girl has seen her own shadow,  but she ignores it,  just as she does her own reflection in a mirror,   Her ears prick up when she hears a dog or wolf on TV,  but she knows there’s nothing in the box, so she doesn’t bother to check.   Some bird songs will cause her to lift her head,  but again she understands there’s nothing alive and present to be concerned with.

This German Shepherd  either doesn’t  understand,  or is just desperate to play or amuse the master.   Whatever the reason,  it’s highly entertaining.

Scientists have managed  to stop light  for 60 seconds by trapping it in a crystal.   Bravo!   Now when can they stop ObamaCare?
