As soon as I complete some pressing paper-work and Jim clears his desk, we are heading towards PA for the week-end. Not to relax - to clean house. What a drag! Getting ready for the summer.

I am sure though there will be movies on the agenda sometime. That's what we do there. We have not had a DISH hooked up - so, no CNN - just movies. Movies we choose. That's our power.

And, we will enjoy the quiet. Quiet enough to hear the frog in the pond.

Now that is the serene and soothing view of nature.

For a glimpse of real drama in nature as it happened in Alan's backyard read his post today. You will find yourself right there with him as he tells the story of the Robins and the Hawk - which sad to say does not have a Disney ending.
