What about the SuperB owl?
As a serious baseball fan, you'd think I'd cover sports more generally and have something to say about the Super Bowl, wouldn't you? So, how about this superb owl photo? Well, I thought it was superb, anyway.
As for the actual football game in Dolphin Stadium, north of Miami, I was pleased by the
Baltimore Indianapolis Colts' victory over the Decatur Staleys Chicago Bears, but I wouldn't have minded if the Bears had won; both teams were about due. It was nice that Peyton Manning finally got a Super Bowl ring, after years of frustration. And Prince did a nice job at half time, playing in the rain -- which was not purple, as far as I know.
Birds are singing
Notwithstanding the snow and bitterly cold temperatures we've had this week, there are some signs of spring already. Yesterday and today, I heard some male cardinals singing, to establish territory in preparation for mating season. While outside for a few minutes this evening (gazing at Mercury and Venus again), I heard a killdeer calling overhead in the darkness. I wonder why they fly at night?
