How could I ever forget you?
A light dusting of snow this morning, which was gone by lunch. Now a cold drizzle. The plants, dog, and I are enjoying the warmth of the pellet stove and all wishing for the following weekend when it will be back in the 70's. My first Ruby Throated Hummingbird (male) came about 1:30 P.M. He must have a cold little ass. A Northern Shrike has been picking off my affable White Throated Sparrows, as I have found three bodies close to the feeder with only feathers, head, feet, and tails remaining. I guess we all have to eat, but I wish he would pick some shit birds like grackles.

Our Motor City Rock Legend, Iggy Pop has finished the US leg of his Post Pop Depression tour and is in Europe. At the Royal Albert Hall in London, he and guitartist Josh Homme (Queen's of the Stone Age) had the thousands in the crowd on their feet for the entire gig. Only Mr. Pop can headline in such a posh English traditional hall and greet the crowd with, "Turn the lights on in this fucking dump!"
