At least I'm getting to see some sunrises these days. This morning, there are lots of little cumulous clouds in the east, being all bright and cheerful in the early light, and the pine trees are glowing green and gold as the birds sing. It's quite chilly, though, and this will be another five blanket day.
Things are pleasant enough here, but there is bad news from other places, especially for our fellow primates. (Link snagged from scottobear.) I suppose that the up side of the great apes becoming extinct is that, once we inevitably follow them, it increases the likelihood of some non-primate species becoming dominant on the planet. I'm rooting for the felines, myself. I sort of like the idea of the descendants of kitties colonizing space a million years hence.
