Fun fact of the day: A goldfish has a memory span of three seconds.

Problem of the day:  In which country is this landmark located? 


Photo of the day:

squirrel This is “our” squirrel Kelly. She came around three years ago, and we would give her nuts and berries. Once, she even came into the house! (By the way, don’t let wild animals into your house- it’s not safe.) We haven’t seen her in a while. I think she got married and moved to another neighborhood and is raising a bunch of little squirrel kittens.

Bonus photo of the day:

familiar Recognize these people?


Fun fact: A cat has 32 muscles in each ear.

Problem of the day: Which U.S. president (played by an actor) am I shaking hands with? I’m dressed as a World War II Canadian nurse at Ft. MacArthur in San Pedro.


Photos of the day:

marley Silly Marley sleeps in the hamper. She really can’t jump out very well and usually knocks it over.

beach2009 This is the same beach near where I grew up. Remember the sand candle photo of me when I was a little girl a few weeks ago? This is where I made the candle. What you see behind us are the tide pools. You can see starfish, hermit crabs, and other kinds of sea life. Harbor seals also live along this beach. I’m lucky that my mom still lives in the same house so we can visit the beach. Growing up, I spent a lot of time exploring and being sandy at this beach.

Long Weekend’s End Tuesday

Fun fact: Tigers have striped skin, not just striped fur.

Problem of the day:


Picture of the day:

stormtrooper This picture is Cameron at Renaissance Faire a few years ago. People come to Ren Faire dressed as all sorts of crazy things, including a group of stormtroopers. Cameron thought this was very cool, and one of the troopers let Cam put on his helmet.
