a little luck is better than none

So On thursday I got a brief glimpse of the Northern Hawk Owl in NH - I saw it just as I was arriving as it flew across the road and landed on a utility pole... I hung around for 3 hours but it wasn't until 4 hours that it was found again -- no photos but hey at least I saw it!  Perhaps I will chase it down again soon.

Christmas break coming to a close

We're almost at the end folks... just a few more days then back to New England, my electric blanket, the ocean, and living free or dying... 

I've had a good break, starting to get worn down from the packing/organizing/figuring out.

But in exciting news - I'm fixing my seat today with the 4$ part from the Honda Dealearship! Now all of my seats will work.  Woohoo!
