...the Government of the United States, which gives to bigotry no sanction, to persecution no assistance, requires only that they who live under its protection should demean themselves as good citizens in giving it on all occasions their effectual support. Geo. Washington Feb. 22, 1732
Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.
Robert Kennedy, South Africa 1966.

Understanding Monarch Migration
Saw the David Letterman show with the Bird Callers. I wondered about this bird so I did a little research. I do love the interwebs!
Pyrrhuloxia “Whale song is a form of communication,” says Ben Welsh, executive creative director, M&C Saatchi Sydney. “It’s a form of communication that the scientists at The University of Queensland have been able to decipher and learn. I was intrigued by this fact and so we asked ourselves whether it would be possible to emulate a male humpback: to write our own love song and then play it, using the instruments of an orchestra? Could we serenade a humpback ourselves? Then imagine what could happened if the whales were to hear our song. We thought that would prove that when it comes to communication, anything is possible.”

B G took a lot of pictures this week. He had a problem and now he has a big bandage on his head.
You can see the spot and the bandage. B G says it is itchy and he has been taking pills to take care of his headaches.
But he is glad that he a good a doctor and nurse and he got the skin cancer taken out of his head.
Sadie and I were worried about him and we took care of him. We are all good friends.
Then he takes us outside.
We like to run.
We have been digging. B G is not happy with that.
Then we come in a running.
B G says we make short work of our dinner. B G used to eat fast also. Maybe he was a bad example..
Then we do some more "bunny watching."
I am ready for my Close-up Mr. DeMille.
Thanks for coming to see us.
B G is napping a bit. He said the stitches will come out on Wednesday.
Have a good week! Woof!!!
