Out of the Blue

We've had a large raptor visit our backyard a few times this summer, suggesting our home was within its hunting ground, a hint the birds seemed to take as well—nothing improves the mileage you stretch out of a sack of birdseed like a predator looming in a nearby tree. Yesterday the looming got even more nearby, as he ended up perched on the birdfeeder, giving me my first close-up look at him. He didn't stick around long enough for a direct comparison to a bird book, but as far as I was able to tell it was probably a Cooper's Hawk. Whatever the breed, this was one awesome bird.

Hey Blue, is there a problem with the ignore feature? I'm trying to add someone to mine and it won't let me access the list.

edit: Nevermind, it was a cookie thing.

That's ok, my first thought was a dinosaur, and I reread it several times, scratching my head...

That was mine as well. I'd actually pictured a velociraptor perched in a tree before things finally fell into place. I should probably start drinking coffee in the morning...

Chase Carey said there had been discussions about the possibility of setting up a Simpsons cable channel in the US, devoted to showing repeats of the show.

You know...I'd watch that.

Was it the 10,000 or the 15,000 rpm Raptor, Blue? Was he RAIDed?

I know. I thought Blue was now living in Jurassic Park with velociraptors. Really magnificent! Spared no expense!
