Did you know?

The Platypus is stranger than you think.

Platypuses have no nipples.  After the young hatch, the mother oozes milk from the pores all over her body.

The male platypus has a poison barb on the inside of its hind legs.  The purpose of this weapon is uncertain.

While often compared to the beaver, the platypus is only about 20 inches in length -- more comparable to the size of the muskrat.

The Platypus bill is actually just an elongated muzzle covered with much the same kind of tough skin found on a dog's nose.  This bill contains an electrically-sensitive organ that can detect the electrical signatures of the small aquatic animals it eats.

Thanks, my friend!

Sorry it took me a few days to see it!  Haven't looked in to the bar since just before you put this up...

April is already calling to me!

Nope, not me!  (It does remind me a little of my days as an avid target shooter, but that was a long time ago...)

Replace the weapons with optics...

yeah, but after a few Newcastles, ya just never know what you'll get up to! ;D


Great quotes Yale.  This one sums it all up for me:

"Going to the mountains is going home. "

There is no place that I feel more peaceful, more comfortable, more at home than the mountains..........

I was fortunate enough in college to have John Muir's grandson as my professor of American History. When he got to the timeperiod of his grandfather, it was fascinating, and I not infrequently spent time after class talking with Dr. Muir, asking all sorts of questions.

The Muirs are interesting folk.

Anybody who runs outside during a major seismic event, arms outstretched, ecstatically crying "A noble earthquake!!!" while boulders come crashing down definitely qualifies as interesting in my book. 

I have literally destroyed several copies of Muir's "The Yosemite" over the years - I always had a paperback version in my pack when hiking the Sierras in my younger days.

Been pedalling the exercise bike furiously the last few weeks - highly motivated to see some high places this April.  (Hope the patched-up knee continues to hold up!)
