I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

An oh so polite Please shut up from a hotel near the British Museum in London last November. I did wonder what all these alleged production companies were doing on that particular street, which didn't seem all that remarkable.
But as someone who used to live in Greenwich Village and had arguments with more than one film crew who wouldn't let me go where I needed to go, I appreciate the sentiment.

Because even common birds are beautiful -- a robin surveying his domain in Central Park.
Mosquitos have always found my blood to be particularly delicious, and yesterday I encountered some vicious specimens, who managed to find the few inches of skin not covered with repellant: my shoulder blades and my left eyelid. I can't open my eye all the way because it's so swollen, so I look like the mug shot of the losing end of a bar fight.
But it's the bites on my back that are driving me crazy because the fiendish bloodsuckers cleverly bit me in places I can't reach to scratch.

This large, shiny walnut is Iapetus, one of Saturn's more than 60 moons. Though it is the third-largest, and was discovered in 1671 by Giovanni Cassini himself, I have to admit having been unaware of its existence until yesterday when I found this picture.

Here's a female house finch, clearly bemused (but not alarmed) by the strange creature with the shiny box making all those clickety sounds.
I had to work until 10 pm Friday night doing an upgrade, and I've promised to make myself “available” beginning at 5 am tomorrow in case there are issues when they come in to work in London. Next Saturday is the first in a series of hikes to prepare for Africa at the end of the summer, so I'll be leaving for the Catskills at 7 am.
Clearly I don't have any choice but to be as lazy as possible today.
