Early Morning Caturday



Behold the Kwyjibo:




(On the sofa, where he's not supposed to be.)

He is a very busy, very fast fellow. And smart! I'm looking forward to his obedience classes; he picks things up quickly.

And to keep it Caturday, this is Cairo, who will always lay on clothes on the bed if you put them there:




This video is at once the saddest and the sweetest thing I've ever seen. Poor babies. (Caturday related.)

I've been watching (on and off) this episode of "American Experience" I recorded off PBS a while back, and it floors me how, back in the 70's when Earth Day was instituted, scientists THEN warned about global warming, melting polar caps, and the dangers of continuing the way we were, and the exact same arguments against -- only then, it was a "communist plot" (apparently Earth Day happens to be on Lenin's birthday) rather than "liberal hysteria." Nixon may not have agreed with the science or any of it, but he at least had the savvy to see the political gain of leaning left a little and passed some eco-friendly legislation and created the EPA (shame more Republicans aren't like that). They have that old commercial with the Indian man in his canoe landing on the shores of the polluted river. Man, I remember that. It's very interesting seeing these organizers today, talking about everything they did to get this started. Fascinating, really.

The office building down the block from us is installing solar panels. I've been watching them erect the framework for the past few weeks and realized what it was the other day. Yay, them. And we have a couple of lovely office/condo buildings up at the Biltmore with "green" (garden) roofs. I wish there were more of those. If I could afford the initial installation of solar I'd do it now; maybe in a few years when we have the loan more paid off.

I also recorded the David Tennant/Patrick Stewart "Hamlet" that was on PBS the other night, but haven't watched it yet.

Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today! * Adopt one today!

Okay, you warned me...

That cat video made me tear up.

Now I'm going to go snuggle Sesame, whether she likes it or not.

He is very smart. It's nice having a dog who picks things up so easily.

I'm lucky to be on a Dr. Who list that gives out news about what the various actors are doing and schedules and the like. "Daily Doctor News" kinda thing.

I read somewhere that it's up on the PBS site, so you can watch (maybe download, too?) there.

And if the download doesn't work, I know it's going to be available on Region 1 DVD here shortly, if it's not already.

That video made me cry. I couldn't even watch the whole thing. And hurray for Bo for being smart and making himself at home.

I know! *sniffle* But I couldn't help but think of the people who think that cats are cold and unfeeling when I looked at that poor fellow who just didn't understand.
