A mountain vacation doesn't look that bad now, huh?

saw them open for blue oyster cult...

There's an ancient Yorkshire saying,"Two heads are better than one, even if they're only sheeps'". Helped me make a good few decisions over the years.

This is the second internet article I've read today that used the word "nare". Previously, I had never seen this word before.

This means something. I just don't know what. I'll try to use it in a normal conversation today. That will be a challenge.

JD is a nare-do-well now.

Note that "Scientists at Michigan State University" are credited. I graduated from that fine institution and studied with some of its fine zoologists, and if they told me they'd found a one-headed bull shark, I'd say, "Show me."

Two-headed fetal deformities are found regularly in many animals, usually the result of incomplete separation of identical twins. They rarely survive to birth. I've seen several deformed dogfish fetuses, although I can't recall extra heads. However, a THREE-headed animal would be real news.

Down, Fluffy!
