I can't remember where I saw it, and which country they were talking about (it may have been Spain) but they're herding sheep and goats and other efficient grazers in a systematic method in an attempt to create firebreaks.

My personal experience of goats was them eating my breakfast, and my mum's cheque book and her car keys... and being with one when she gave birth to twins - or as my sister and I related to my mum at the time... "the sheep's broken brokened in half" :)

I have a question that I'll bet someone here can answer - or get the answer and post it here.

Why is the BOINC software updated soooooooo often?

I looked for somewhere else to ask this question - another forum - but didn't see one that was relevant.

This reminded me a teensy bit of when I was trying to waft a really annoying buzzing fly towards the front door to avoid it being hunted by my cats and/or driving me to distraction - and it kind of stopped being able to go anywhere but remained alive and it was kind of worse than anything I'd envisaged it was possible to do - but I had :/ Except this involves a hawk, and it's got a much better ending :)

We have a runaway...

Wild Zoological Park in Bobbington, Staffordshire said a wallaby had cleared a perimeter fence on Tuesday.

The statement said the animal was called Holly and was neither "a kangaroo [nor] a dangerous beast".

"We'd just like to take a minute to clarify she's a small, friendly, grass eating wallaby," it added.
It was last seen near a branch of Sainsbury's near Wombourne.

Some other notables

I knew I had a raccoon living under my house. Last night I counted four raccoons scurrying to hide under my house. I can only assume this is a mama and her babies.

Ain't I lucky? ;-)

Imagine my surprise to find that Rusty is not a boy, but rather a girl... and she has had two babies.

I'll try to get a picture if she comes back soon. Rusty is a blond raccoon who is one of our less frequent visitors.

edit: For a picture of Rusty, go to the first photo in this thread taken in March of 2018.
