Giant nests perplex experts
By Garry Mitchell

Yellowjackets (*shudder*)

"In previous years, a yellow jacket nest was no larger than a basketball, Ray said. It would contain about 3,000 workers and one queen. These gigantic nests may have as many as 100,000 workers and multiple queens."

"We're not really sure how this multiple queen thing works," Ray said. "It could be that the daughters of the original queen don't leave the nest or that the queens have developed some way to cooperate."

Sounds like Darwin's theory at work.

Don't Let Satan Get You in Your Sleep

I have no doubt my parents would have put us in these back in the day (of crazed pentacostalism). But hey, you can never be too careful when the Devil's on the prowl!

Birthday Ink @ New Breed in Indy

This weekend, we finally did our "Sabin Girls Weekend" sans the two Cali Sabins. It happened to fall on my birthday and we had a blast. I had been hoping to get a tattoo while on our trip and by time we walked into the shop two more cousins and three more aunts had decided to get done as well! We ended up at New Breed on Keystone and I'm glad we did. I'd make the drive again for this artist. The rest of the trip was fantastic but aside from the ink we had a "What happens in Indy, stays in Indy" policy!

Grey Bashing

So, what exactly does a squirrel's attack position look like?

Some highlights from:
A squirrel gone wild (click for full article)

Osborne smacked it with a shoe, but that only seemed to anger the animal. "It started getting in attack position toward me," he said. So he grabbed the birthday-cake box and caught the squirrel in midflight.

But before Klute stomped him, the tough squirrel had already survived a police pepper-spraying, Osborne's bucket detention - - and Fern Ochakoff's purse.

Perhaps you're familiar with Rolie Polie Olie? Cute enough, not as annoying as Caillou. We picked up a DVD at the library this week which had a new character. A baby. Named Cootchie.

E:"Mommy, do you like Cootchie?"

M:"I sure do."

E:"Does Daddy like Cootchie?"

M:"I don't know, you'll have to ask him."

E:"Daddy, do you like Cootchie?"

D:(face red from the silent laughing)"Yes, honey, I do."
