Bath Time


Dr Frankenstein: I’ve just invented something that everyone in the world will want!
You know how you get a nasty ring around the bathtub every time you use it, and you have to clean the ring off?
Igor: Yes, I hate it.
Dr Frankenstein: Well, you need never have a bathtub ring again!
I’ve invented the square tub .

Azaleas


Azaleas are a subgenus of flowering shrubs that can grow up to 6 feet in height and produce numerous large flowers in colors of pink, purple, red or white. They bloom during the spring and can be deciduous or evergreen, depending on the species. Azalea bushes have a long lifespan with proper care, as some plants can live for as long as 50 years. Azalea bushes require only routine maintenance to survive in most temperate climates around the world.

Peeking Duck


Ducks have been domesticated as pets and farm animals for more than 500 years, and all domestic ducks are descended from either the mallard or the Muscovy duck. Mallards, especially, are easy to crossbreed with other types of ducks, and mallards often hybridize with all types of ducks at local ponds. This can lead to very unusual feather shapes and color patterns that can be confusing to identify.

Lily of the Valley

Lily of the valley ( Convallaria majalis) is a fragrant flowering plant used in religious ceremonies, world celebrations, perfumes and in gardens. Also known as the May lily, it means “return to happiness” and most often symbolizes chastity, purity, happiness, luck and humility.

Baltimore Orioles

True story…I was getting a hair cut…

…and wanted to start a conversation with the lady cutting my hair. Maybe she likes birds, so I tried, “This morning when I opened my garage door I heard six different kinds of bird song in the first 30 seconds.”

“Yeah, I guess.” OK, she is not interested in birds. Maybe sports, “This weekend i am taking the family up to Toronto and we are going to watch the Toronto Bluejays play the Baltimore Orioles.”

Silence. Then, “Wow, you are really into this bird thing, aren’t you.”

Really happened!
