Spring must really be here

There was a rather bedraggled Steller's jay harvesting nesting material around the piano fence a few minutes ago. I guess it's time to shave, grunt and go looking for salmon and berries.

Wait...I'm not a bear.

I'll get back to you on this.

Television and the plastic mind of the growing child

So the Child decided to rent a DVD of Silly Symphonies, which is a collection of pre-WWII Disney animated shorts, mostly set to music without much dialog, originally running under that name. (In parallel to Merry Melodies, one imagines, though I know precious little about the history of animation.) She's riveted by these charming little cartoons of bullfrogs croaking in chorus and whatnot.

And the other day she asked how we were supposed to rewind DVDs.

I love technology.
