Bojangles! UNC 110 UVa 76

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General

They did it again! UNC broke 100 points as they delivered a loss to UVa up in Charlottesville today. 110 to 76 but it could have been even more embarassing.

The oustanding question is: Does the Bojangles Two Biscuits for a Dollar deal count for Away Games? Do I have to go to the local Bojangles to find out or will you guys let me know?

Previous teams that gave us Bojangles wins this year were Cleveland State, William and Mary and Maryland.

Robins, Blue Bird, Ice storm

Paul, · Categories: Amusements, General

What an unexpected epiphany for a late January — Epiphany being officially on the 6th and this being the 29th — to see a tree full of robins just as the storm begins. The tall Savannah Holly was full of berries and was soon full of robins as the snow changed to freezing rain today. As I watched the birds dive into the tree, I noticed one of smaller. Though it shared a red breast with the others in the flock, it was quickly obvious that this was a different bird. Sure enough was it moved about the tree, I could see that it was an Eastern Bluebird.
In some ways seeing the blue bird among the robins should be no surprise since both at thrushes, but in the midst of the ice storm to see a blue bird feeding on red berries, a bright flash of blue among the brown robins (his cousins in red breastedness) — that is something else.

David McConville forwards Aussie fun had by combining iPod Photos and old school stereoscope. A cute hardware hack to produce 3-D for “the future now.”
