These videos and picture were taken in Dodge Park. By the way, the title of this post is a homage to National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, which is one of the finest comedies ever made.

This is the best video out of all of them. Check out how fat the tree rat is.

The Bush Administration.

Man, ya gotta love the Bush administration. It has only taken Bush six years in office to realize that he's making mistakes. The latest instance is evident in this article.

Maybe once the large, cute, and cuddly animals start to become extinct due to global warming, people will start to demand policy changes. Who is going to say "good riddance" to this?

Michigan Pictures.

Here are some pictures of my trip to Michigan so far.

This is a tree that a beaver had it's way with in Dodge Park.

Here's another one.

Here's my dad pointing out what beavers can do.

Here's the same tree, sans my dad.

This is the view from the top of a hill in Stoney Creek Metropark.

Winter-time in southeastern Michigan is usually like this.

The remains of the old Stoney Creek farm.

The old road that led to the farm, with a new stone table placed in the middle of it for some reason.

A Few Things...

Here are a few things from the news today:
  1. The Yangtze River dolphin is now extinct. I just read Last Chance to See by Douglas Adams and this dolphin was discussed in the book. At the time when Adams went to China to find the dolphin, the outlook for its survival was already very bleak. It would have been a monumental undertaking by the Chinese government to save this creature, since the Yangtze River is so heavily used and completely unregulated.

  2. Intelligent children are more likely to become vegetarians later in life. On average, the I.Q. of a vegetarian is 5 points higher than a non-vegetarian.

  3. This is a shock wave seen last week in the photosphere of the Sun that was caused by a flare that erupted from a sunspot.

My 30th Birthday in Atlanta.

Actually it was the day after my birthday. We stayed at the Hilton downtown and spent the day at the Georgia Aquarium which was a short walk from the hotel.
