Hail! Very loud hail. Little dog with heart disease does not approve.

Another thing I learned today is that miller moths are very filling. The immature screech owls are not passing mouse school because there are so many miller moths to eat instead. I say, if they're flying well enough to maintain their weight on miller moths, they're flying well enough to be released, but. We Have A Protocol.

The River of Consciousness by Oliver Sacks

In other weather news Mungo's flight back to Montreal got cancelled. His new flight is at 5 a.m. Saturday morning, with a three-hour layover in Newark. I hope he doesn't get stuck in Newark.

I'm going to tag any political posts with "politics" from now on. If you have a paid DW account, you can filter them off your reading page.

Go to "Manage Filters" (, choose "Default view" (or whichever filter you read me on), and then click on my name. You should get these choices:

Show only content that ...
... is rated [anything(show all content)/safe or non-explicit/safe for work only]
... and the entry is tagged with [any/all/none]
of the selected tags:
(no tags selected)
Available tags (click to select):

Choose "none" from the dropdown menu on "the entry is tagged with". Click "politics" on the list of available tags.

I'm going to tag this post "politics" so the tag will be there to click! I am sorry that this option is only available to paid DW accounts. I will also put political posts behind a cut tag so you can avoid reading them.
