I could be wrong about this

Browsing the GD store looking for gifts, I saw this:

http://store.dead.net/d%C3%A9cor/bolt-bird-feeder

My wife's a backyard birder, and I thought, hey, may as well take a look at it. For $125 (really?) I immediately passed on the idea of buying it...but the more I looked at photos, the more it looked more like a bird-injuring device than a feeder. Am I nuts, or do the bolt points look positively lethal?

It's not advertised as such, but maybe it's an attempt at a "squirrel proof" feeder...the mechanisim being, impale them if possible.

LOL

wanna see a video of German kids talking about Valley Forge, in English? This was a school project from my daughter, for her bilingual history class. She is the one in the black hat (well all in black, actually)

was

Badger,

was in Hanoi a few months back, March.

hey be sure to get to Halong Bay.

do an overnight or 7 on one of the boats. most peaceful place I slept in years, out on the water. easy enough to stay in some fisherman's houseboat, as I did, just paid about 5$ per night and helped with the nets. as around in Halong city port area AWAY form the tourists.

also, enjoy the Biar Hoi in Hanoi... locally brewed beer sold in street shops by the glass direct out of the kegs, cheapest beer I had in years.

stay safe, and hey, you speak French, so sure you can communicate with the older folks.

peace.
