Here's a weblog about wildfires with some interesting storits, including one about a bear cub rescued from one of the fires in Mendocino National Forest.
One of the kitties is hanging out in my back yard. I don't know if he's waiting for me to put out more food or if he's just waiting for his girlfriend to show up.
I think the reason there are no crickets in my yard is because I don't water the lawn enough. The neighbors with green lawns all still have crickets.
The moon will turn full just after midnight local time tonight. According to Farmer's Almanac (hey, the Old Farmer has a web site!) this is the Buck Moon. Oh, deer.
