Yesterday some friends of ours were attacked by a group of monkeys right outside our house when they were leaving to go home after an afternoon visit. The monkeys always come down from the mountains in the winter to look for food. Our friends were carrying some groceries, which were obviously what these Japanese macaques were after. I ran outside and snapped a photo. See the cute baby?

Shel Silverstein is one of my favorite poets. With the current problems of mad cow disease and avian influenza, this poem from Silverstein's book Falling Up is particularly relevant:
I said, "I'll take the T-bone steak."

Happy New Year to everyone! All that stuff you see hanging from the trees in the photo is called Spanish Moss, a plant related to the pineapple that grows all over the Southeast region of the United States. Many critters live in the Spanish moss, like small birds, spiders, and insects. The moss has also been used for decoration, building materials, and medicine. I took the picture during my winter vacation in Florida. Learn more about this unique plant.
