Happy Holidays, & Pardon My Rude Absence

Been having computer hell, which my much better half has largely resolved. I’ll be getting caught up ASAP.

In the meantime, rest assured that this year’s crop of urban peregrines seems to be continuing apace. One of the brownies, the tiercel, was screaming over my head only yesterday.

The hellish illustration here dates from about 1440, & is from “The Hours of Catherine of Cleves”. Gawd but I do love the treasure trove that is vintageprintable.com, lord of the public domain for this sort of thing.

Wishing you all the very best for 2013!

Once again, she has been all too generous & kind, for including me in her list of faves. I appreciate it very much. I put little effort, but much affection, into this ‘blog. It will remain stubbornly free-form, just as my radio shows generally were. I’m grateful to anyone who finds it worth a glance. My own list of nominees will be posted once I get back from a board meeting!

Poaching. US now claims it’s getting serious about it.

This is billed as the first of its kind. Well, for that particular species, maybe. Otherwise, no, not to my knowledge.
