Would you like to know how I inserted the zipper and lining into this purse? Here is a tutorial on how to do this!

Started this Friday and finished Saturday, crocheted with Dark Olive Hilos La Espiga nylon no.18. I took my favorite leather purse and created a template for me to crochet.

The Beluga cam at the Vancouver Aquarium. Qila gave birth to her new calf on 6/10/08 and you can see them both with live streaming video.

The Wolf cam at Bays Mountain Park in Kingsport, TN. Not streaming, but images that you can update by refreshing. I can see a good shot of a wolf having a relaxing lay.

The Chimp cam featuring Washoe a 41 year old chimp who uses sign language. This has three static images of play areas for the chimps that update every 30 seconds.

The James Reserve bird cams. Numerous feeder and nestbox cams at the James Reserve in the San Jacinto mountains in CA.

Eagles Nest Hancock Wildlife Foundation cam. Two babies on the nest right now

E.O. Wilson – “The Diversity Life”

For the green prehuman earth is the mystery we were chosen to solve, a guide to the birthplace of our spirit, but it is slipping away. The way back seems harder every year. If there is danger in the human trajectory, it is not so much in the survival of our own species as in the fulfillment of the ultimate irony of organic evolution: that in the instant of achieving self-understanding through the mind of man, life has doomed its most beautiful creations. And thus humanity closes the door to its past.
