Cutlery for Mechanics!

Gosh, I don't know about the rest of you, but I really want some of this flatware! It would be reserved for special occasions, and it could replace that cheesy gold-plated stuff I bought for Mary some years ago. Of course, they're asking Snap-On prices, so it really would impress the grease-stained wretches who sit at our kitchen table.

Cutlery with wrenches on the end

This tool-cutlery (knives, spoons and forks with wrenches on the other end) is just fantastic -- though at $24 per place setting, it's the kind of thing you might want to reserve for good company and special occasions.

Hah hah hah this is TOO MUCH. I love it!

The Eagle Cam is neat. Direct link to the streaming eagle cam. Where I lived in Colorado there were about 60 bald eagles who hung out at a neighboring bird sanctuary about a mile from my home. We'd see these beautiful raptors all the time. A juvenile bald also perched on a huge dead tree along my bike commute route -- he was there every morning and most evenings when I rode by, keeping a sharp eye out for prairie dogs and whatever other varmints he liked to eat.

Speaking of predation: watched "Barnyard" the other day with the kids. Coyotes are evil because they *gasp!* eat chickens and rabbits. Cows are the heroes for protecting the chickens and bunnies. The farmer is cool because he's a vegan farmer. Of course, we're consigning the coyotes to death by denying them their food, but we don't like to think about that part.

Wait a minute! A 'vegan' farmer? Why does he have chickens and cows? Seems to me that would be wasting some tasty barbecue sauce!

I think coyotes get a bum rap. Coyote is the Trickster, after all:

"Coyote figures prominently in several creation myths. In one myth, Coyote creates the first people by kicking a ball of mud (sometimes a bit of feces) until it formed into the first man. In another myth Coyote is able to successfully impregnate an evil woman who has killed off all the other men in the world during the sexual act."
