Pigeon Nesting on the C

As I was walking home from work, I saw a young boy sitting on his father's shoulder looking intently at the top of a pharmacy store. He started pointing at something excitedly and his father smiled.

I looked at the direction where the boy was gesturing and saw a pigeon nesting on the cradle of C in the P-H-A-R-M-A-C-Y sign. If you look closely, you can see two eggs sitting precariously on the edge of the nest. According to
Wikipedia, pigeons lay just two eggs per season so these two eggs are probably the only eggs in the nest.

If you love nature photos, you should check out Brookville Daily Photo by Abe Lincoln. He has some of the most beautiful nature photos I have ever seen. And most of them are taken in his backyard.

So what is in your backyard?

Soul Train with The Cauldron / YouTube Addiction

I saw a fabulous new band called The Cauldron at my neighborhood cafe last Saturday. The band rocked the place down with some great soul music and Top 40 hits. My favorite part of the evening was when they sang one of my favorite songs, Crazy by Gnarls Barkley, which got me up on my feet and dancing with the crowd.

That brings us to my addiction to YouTube, the ubiquitous video website where the most interesting videos around the world are posted. Because of YouTube, I have discovered some of the best music (and videos) in the world. Here are some of my favorites: Je Viens du Sud by Chimene Badi; Donne by Myriam Abel; Intoxication by Gentleman; Perfect Harmony by Wang LeeHom, Rain & J-Lim; Feel Good Inc. by Gorillaz; Kung Fu Fighting by Fatboy Slim; I Don't Love You Enough by Andy Lau & Kelly Chen; No Mes Ames by Jennifer Lopez & Mark Anthony.

What are your favorite songs?
