So, to all of you still hating the Patriots, especially Roger Goodell…

you are still wrong. Oh, so very wrong.

You should go to this – it’s on our calendars

I received this at work and sent it to Geoff and we both agreed that we’re going to go.  This is important and discussions like these need to happen with sympathetic audiences like you find here in MA and elsewhere.  If you’re in the neighborhood, won’t you join us?  It’s FREE and open to the public.

Shop Local- your holiday shopping calendar

As much as I try to pretend otherwise, it is November.  And while this does mean that there is a lot of really good music happening this month, it also means that it’s time for Holiday Craft Show Season to really get underway.  My schedule is packed with great shows.  If you need gifts for people who are interesting, quirky, hard to shop for, or just want something one of a kind, look no further.

Seriously, click on that link below.  It’s right down there.

Um, apparently this is actually happening

I’m still not entirely clear on how this happened.  But apparently it did.  OK, technically it hasn’t happened yet, but it’s going to happen because it’s in calendars and there’s advertising.  And I’m going to be rehearsing.  Perhaps I should explain.

When memes jump the shark, or, artistic integrity at the pet store

I’m not sure where in the mists of Internet history the Jesus riding the dinosaur to church thing first happened.  To me it’s felt like it’s been around as long as the Westboro Baptist Haters or the crazy doomsday prophets on the street corners.  That is, always.

Today, however, I think the meme jumped the shark… as it were.  Today, it showed up in Petsmart.

#WheresRory goes to @HarvardMuseum- The Glass Flowers part 2/2

Well, Rory has seen a lot in is trip at HMNH.  It’s taken four previous posts that you can view here, here, here, and here.  This is the last in the HMNH series.  Rory had a very busy day, but, as you’ll see, he got quite a sendoff from the staff when it was time to go home.

But first, more flowers.

Ok, technically, cacti.  Either way, they're really cool.

#WheresRory goes to @HarvardMuseum- The Glass Flowers

Rory has made his way through much of HMNH at this point.  In my previous posts, he’s seen much of what the museum has to offer and even got a “backstage entrance”.  Thus far we haven’t seen Rory’s visit to the crown jewel of the HMNH collection, the Glass Flowers.

Rory is Furiously Happy about seeing the Glass Flowers.

Apparently, Dash does not like the Grateful Dead

Or, perhaps, it’s more accurate to say that he’s not a fan of tie dye.   He is, however, a fan of play.  And of stuffed toys.  And of absolutely killing stuffed toys while playing.  And, unlike Rerun, he doesn’t eat the stuffing.  WIN.

Which bring us to tie dye, dancing bears, and the Grateful Dead.

#WheresRory goes to @HarvardMuseum- time for MORE #taxidermy

This is the third post in a series about Rory’s trip to HMNH.  This is the final taxidermy post and, as promised, there are some old friends in these halls.  Today’s photos are from New England Forests, The Great Mammal Hall, and the Arthropod Gallery.

We’ll start in New England Forests.

Rory!  Don't turn around...

#WheresRory goes to @HarvardMuseum- time for #taxidermy

As I indicated in my post from the other day, my trip to HMNH with Rory involved a lot of photography.  Enough that if I put it all in one post I’d either crash WordPress or everyone would give up because it was tl;dr.  So, today we’ll see the photos from some of the parts of the museum that feature more dead things, though not quite as old.  That’s right, I’m talking about taxidermy.
