Don’t you think it would be cool to find a cave and discover a long lost treasure?! In The Secret Cave: Discovering Lascaux by Emily Arnold McCully a group of boys do just that!

Welcome to yet another installment of animals eating!
I have two thoughts… Graceful birds, turkeys are NOT and those leaves must be really worth it!
Music credits… ”Croque” by Thomas Fersen on the CD French Playground; fun music in French that will have have your kids speaking French in no time! Well, not really, but it is fun!
Let’s hang out with a bunch of Brown-headed Cowbirds today…
I just noticed this faceted crystal hanging in my sisters window today. It was making small rainbows all over her kitchen and it’s funny because I was just trying to photography my ring, somewhere, I forget where, but the light was just right and my ring was sparkling like crazy. But its brilliance was just too small to capture with my camera (too small for my camera but perfect for me to enjoy).
Anywho, enjoy this disco moment. You might want to get up and dance. I don’t want my readers entering a Doodles and Jots trance!
More, More, More, Pt. I from the Andrea True Connection is on the Last Days of Disco Soundtrack. And see the movie if you want an intellectual take on single life in the disco age (with fun music).

Set to The Aviary from Carnival of the Animals by the Composer Camille Saint-Saens.
It’s included on this CD which feature Peter and the Wolf from the Composer Sergey Prokofiev, performed by The Boston Symphony Orchestra with the conductor Seiji Ozawa, and narrated by Melissa Joan Hart. And it’s a great intro to classical music for kids!
The wind might be in a big hurry outside but we have slowed things down quite a bit inside with lots of storm watching, home cooked meals, and cozy time!
Amazingly we still have power after a full day of that! For me, hurricanes are mostly exciting and sometimes a little scary. When I was outside taking this video I heard a loud crack and saw a large limb break off a neighbor’s tree. All these tree are still standing but probably won’t have any leaves left by this time tomorrow!
Music credits: “Come As You Are” from Nirvana MTV Unplugged in New York…
Are you being affected by Hurricane Sandy? Please share!
I have discovered I like watching critters eat.
Anyone know what this squirrel is eating? It looks like a bulb of some sort. I saw him devour one, climb down, and return to the same spot with a new one. Did you notice how much the branch was swaying in the wind? I think I would get queasy trying to eat up there!
Video set to “Di Dicki Do Dum” by the Wiggles; this squirrel is a big Wiggles fan!
