School is the best part of Summer ending.

I'm already starting my Back to School stories.  I didn't see the need to start a Story Contest, since UA is one of the top 3 forums, so nobody needs encouragement to write there.

Got my internet back... my old cablemodem went all pear-shaped on me and decided to ignore the proper DNS servers.  It was saying SORRY, CONNECTION NOT FOUND to just about everywhere I wanted to go.  Yeah, that isn't the proper answer, hardware.  You either FIND a connection or you're going in the trash. 

Well, it's officially on it's way to the local landfill.  It didn't think I was serious.  Oops.

Got up to discover wifey used the last coffee pod, then did not even bother to take her coffee to work.  Cold coffee... 

But then I remembered... French press!  And chicory coffee from Cafe du Monde.  So enjoying a jet black cup of hot pressed Joe with a croissant. Life is good.

I made a Baked Ziti Bolognese.  So good.  I ramped up the mozzarella and Parmesan.  Cheesy good.

The cats and I got up close and personal with a Peregrine Falcon yesterday.

I was outside with both kitties just before lunch yesterday.  Our neighbor has a couple of large hosta plants and some other viney thing that I have to cut back to clear the sidewalk a few times every summer.  There's a lot of mice in the this mass of greenery and the cats spend lots of time watching and hoping to pounce.

The boy was up on the front step with me, while the girl cat was intently staring into the growth.  All of a sudden, a large bird swooped in front of me and crashed into the plantings, disappearing into the greenery.  Injured bird or what?  Before I could investigate the bird flew up and away from us.

Now I got a good glimpse before it disappeared and saw the gray and white bars on the tail.  A Peregrine Falcon!  No doubt leaving with some lunch in it's talons.  They rarely miss their target.

This bird is one of my top ten favorites, tho' I rarely get to see one.  The Peregrine is the fastest animal on earth, diving at speeds of over 220 miles an hour.  They can spot prey from hundreds of feet in the air, dive to the ground and generally grab what they've gone after.  They're so fast the prey never knows they're coming, until they're grasped in talons and rising in the air.

Got up and close with one several years ago at Hawk Ridge in Duluth, MN. They capture birds there as they detour around Lake Superior, heading south in the fall.  Here's a shot of one being released.

So cool, MS!

I was able to visit one when I was about 18 years old.   It was not an adult yet.  The Michigan DNR introduced them to some of the skyscrapers in Detroit in the 80's.   Around my first year out of high school, the bird wasn't fully adapt at flying and they figured some of the winds around the tall buildings was the cause of it falling and crash landing.   It was cared for at the Detroit Zoo and my father knew one of the vets there.   My sister and I were able to visit with it.   It's my favorite bird because of that experience.   I'm glad they are thriving now after being endangered before.

Speaking of extinction...  GIANT PENGUINS  (Crossvallia waiparensis)  Sad

I read about the giant penguin fossil Jules, paleontology being one of my interests.

Being big has a definite short term advantage, but it doesn’t have long term sustainability.  At least the giant penguins probably weren’t driven to extinction by humans like the moa and giant cave bear.

And now I suppose I’ll get into a speciation and extinction debate with someone.

I have a feeling that the Speciation/Extinction Debate would have to be conducted in 1408, or Politics, as we don't have a child-forum for Science!

Going away for a few days on a weekend trip with some of Dan's friend.

His one friend is a HUGE bourbon fan boy and has promised to have something special for me.     Us two and one other guy are the only bourbon drinkers.  

And I love all the wives(and one girlfriend).   We all get along so good.

Taco party tonight.  Golfing on Saturday, weather is supposed to be beautiful.  Steaks with sauteed mushrooms, with scallops and shrimp scampi after golf.  Made to order omelettes on Sunday morning.  And a surprise for Saturday morning breakfast our host isn't revealing.
I'm going to feel so fat by Sunday night.
