Dances With Wolves followed the book pretty closely.

The wolf restoration project at Yellowstone National Park has gones so well that the feds are considering taking them off the protected species list.

I saw my first live wild red fox yesterday out driving in the country. Rt 28 out in the sticks of Va is breathtaking esp with the snow on the ground *again*.

I saw a fox once. They say if you see one once in your lifetime, consider yourself lucky.

With the new gun laws, my parent's had to give up their chickens as they no longer own a gun to shoot foxes and stray dogs.

Mike, if you see a fox, especially near a house or built up area don't consider yourself lucky, they are probably rabid.

I saw a wild rabbit with a white coat for the first time the other day. I know it's natural for their coats to turn white during the winter, but I just never really thought about it since I've only seen wild brown bunnies before. The are much prettier with white fur.

In certain parts of my hometown, you're lucky if you don't run over at least one fox with your car in your lifetime. My parents actually had a den, with two kits, in their back field two summers ago. very cool.

Consider yourself lucky - my parents had a family of skunks under their deck last year!! Luckily there were no run-ins :)

My mom kicked a skunk once when we were kids. It was nighttime and she thought it was one of our soccer balls laying in the yard.

Stinky!

Some times they come up to munch on housecats, one of their favorite easy targets.






Who will be the first to take this easy setup.......

That reminds me of Phoebe's Thanksgiving.. in her past life. When she's yelling, "More bandages! More Bandages!" and then her arm gets blown off-

My workday won't be over until late this evening. I've got a planning board meeting to make a presentation at.

Me neither - I have a City Council meeting tonight and I have 2 of 3 agenda items. Hopefully it will be quick and painless.

There is nothing I hate more than monday night meetings. Bleeech! I have a neighborhood meeting tonight and all I want to do is go home and watch Boston Public and the Real World/Road Rules Battle of The Sexes on MTV...two of my guilty pleasures.

Anyone catch that new Indiana-Jones type show that's on Mondays now? I think it's called Veritas : The Quest.

It was "ok".

I get to go home and do menial things that I hate wasting time doing at work. Like highlighting every cross-reference in our zoning ordinance so as I write new sections this week and throw the numbering off I don't lose the intent of the cross-reference or cause other mass confusion. It's boring and tedious, which is why I would rather do it in front of the t.v.

I don't like them either. The only one I watched was Survivor, one episode, and it was the only thing to do at the time (it was 98F in Vancouver and I didn't have air conditioning... so I was sequestered in the basement so I wouldn't have to deal with the heat.) I watched about five minutes of fear factor once, but that's about it.

Hi kids, I missed you today. Work and all. So what is the answer to the midget/Sore gal joke?

Donk, Is everyone in Canada disarmed? So, all you have is the the Canadian Army from keeping 100 million well armed American Rednecks from coming North for your donuts and sensible fashions?

Don't let the word get out you have no guns, Estonia may decide to knock you off.

The midgets are a bunch of cunning runts...

OT if that is possible in this thread

EG queried
Is everyone in Canada disarmed?

We are not completely disarmed, but many people gave up their guns rather than register them.The main reason is that once your gun is registered the police can enter your home at any time of the day, without cause, to examine your storage facilities and registration papers. AND if they see something else that may not be legal they can use whatever they see to cause an investigation to occur. Broad and sweeping police powers scared many people from gun ownership.

ewww i think id give up my gun to

i tend to like our "plain sight" rules and illigal searches rules, though Ashcroft seems to be putting a hell-of-a dent in those

shrugs, so much for running to Canada when/if DC gets whacked again.

The creator of HSB is steven bochco.

maybe you were thinking of Belker.

My favourite line from the show was "cows don't have down genes" As they tried to push a cow down a set of stairs. I think they ended up pushing the cow out a 3rd storey window.

Belker is exactly who I was thinking of.

I guess I've made my point about getting old...... :)

Brain Pep would be a good idea right about now...I can't concentrate on my "Evil Planning Schemes" 'cause I'm so upset I didn't make the Cool Cyburbanites' Clube.

I didn't make that clube either.

I think it's age discrimination - I'm calling an attorney. ;)

In fear and loathing in las vegas, Dr. Raoul Duke was constantly threatening / requiring to call his attorney.

I left my bowling shoes in the car overnight and it was 2 degrees F. Boy was that a rude experience when I went bowling last night.
