Things that make me go Ha! and Hmmm? and ooooh…

Ha!

and Hmmm?

Recently this wasp has been seen nearby… it is a hunter of the Emerald Ash Borer. Hopefully it will not spell doom and gloom.
Female C.fumipennis
(Image lifted from here). More info about both in Maine at the wasp link…

Hmmm?, as in WTF?

So I recently heard that prisoners at Guatanamo Bay are tortured with pop music. (It was on Whattdya Know… can’t find any links). And it isn’t constitutional rights, or human rights, or the Geneva convention that is putting a stop to this… it is that the pop singers are not getting their royalties. The US government owes several thousand dollars in royalties for pop songs used to torture prisoners.

Was the wool put over my eyes on this one or is it really true??

And Oooooh

The disk flowers on these…

bab5 came in the mail tonight, and we’re all addicted. Another Oooooh!

    Love the video – these are the folks Colleen is fighting? When they speak of “not transporting firewood,” from where to where are they talking?

    See you tomorrow?

    Don’t know about the Guantanamo and pop music reference, though I have heard of it being used before – eg. w/ Manuel Noreiga…
