On Video: Rock River's full frog moon
Lovely images, Glen. I'm still not sure what a full frog moon is, unless it's a full moon during which frogs croak, peep, etc. So if you don't hear the frogs, but they are indeed croaking, is that still a full frog moon?
On Celebratory excess
no, I still think we can make this world a better place.
On Badger hunting in Wisconsin
For the etymology hounds: Woodchucks don't chuck wood, which I attribute to the lack of an opposable thumb. The word is probably derived from English speakers hearing an Algonquian word for the animal and thinking it sounded like words they knew. I believe we got "Moose" from a similar process. -- the Badger.
I have seen woodchucks waddling around near Spring Brook off the bike trail in Janesville. Just stay away from the garden, Chucky, and we'll have no problems.

No pay. I believe they are reimbursed for travel expenses. --Gazette reporter Frank Schultz
On Whose quote is that, really?
I saw a new one today, attributed to Albert Einstein, something to the effect that play is the highest form of research. I would suggest that if somebody says it's a quote from Einstein, Lincoln or some other Great Mind, don't believe it till you check it out. -- The Badger
On Janesville's Backyard Birds
Photography lets us see things we can't see with the naked eye. Thanks, Glen. .... Was that a hawk sitting in that tree, looking to pick off one of the feeder eaters?
