Be Vewy Vewy Quiet

I’m hunting for wabbits… or rats or prairie dogs. Really, anything that’s a potential carrier for bubonic plague. That’s right folks, the week before Easter we’re running a picture of a cute little bunny rabbit, with a story about the plague. God, I love the irony.

Feature at the Aztec Ruins, for National Parks Week. Go take advantage of free admission while you still can.

That’s all for tonight. A couple days off, including what is sure to be the loneliest birthday ever. Cheers.

Miracle Baby

Interesting little story about a baby who, a year ago Christmas Eve, made major medical news across the country, even making Readers Digest this month. Apparently at birth his mother stopped breathing and she suffered cardiac arrest and, upon emergency c-section, the baby was not breathing either. Miraculously, they both just reawakened, with no explanation for either the cause or the salvation.

Very interesting, indeed… The above was shot with a pseudo-remote camera, placed at the center of the table with a cable release attached.

Before that was a little holiday party for a local Hispanic support group at the Citadel Mall, where families involved with this program basically came for presents and food. It was one of those difficult events where everybody was posing for the camera, posing their kids for the camera, and making as big a deal of my presence as possible. Makes my job difficult, quite contrary to their purpose, I assume.

Also was interesting speaking to the primarily Spanish-speaking folks there. My Spanish skills are very weak, having not taken classes for it since like 7th grade. I was doing pretty well too, until I accidentally said “Arigato” instead of “Gracias.” Japanese just kept popping into my head, there was nothing I could do!

Anyways, that’s all for the evening, hope you all had a great weekend and thanks for reading!
