Random Observations

Which is what this blog is turning into.

This is weird, an unusual southern migration of Snowy Owls from the Arctic is occuring:
A certain number of the iconic owls fly south from their Arctic breeding grounds each winter but rarely do so many venture so far away even amid large-scale, periodic southern migrations known as irruptions.
"What we're seeing now -- it's unbelievable," said Denver Holt, head of the Owl Research Institute in Montana.
"This is the most significant wildlife event in decades," added Holt, who has studied snowy owls in their Arctic tundra ecosystem for two decades.
Based on the uniforms, the first Star Trek movie should be called Disco Trek. That's the type of things I learn  from an HBO free preview weekend showing movies from the late 70s.

Sure it's been a warm January in the lower 48, but not the warmest.  That was way back in 2006.

Occupy Oakland jumped the shark. Kiss the union money goodbye. Meanwhile the number of private-sector union members has increased, so labor may be regaining some strength.

News USGS report, Severe Declines in Everglades Mammals Linked to Pythons. So I guess USGS no longer stands for US Geological Survey, kinda like the TLC no longer means The Learning Channel.

The Fox-Muppet battle continues to rage: 
At a London press conference to promote The Muppets‘ UK release, Kermit D. Frog, himself a former TV news personality, defended the film against the charge, but it was Miss Piggy who delivered the coup de grace, calling the accusation “laughable as accusing Fox News as being News.”
