Isn't Arizona Supposed to be Hot?

You wouldn't know it from the temps we've been having lately. Not that I'm complaining. I still prefer "Arizona Cold" over the rain and ice that we had been experiencing in Seward.

Although, from the sound of things, immediately after our departure Seward has been getting pounded with snowstorm after snowstorm. Bummer it wasn't like that last winter. Figures...

Anyway, as many of you already know, we've arrived in our new home in Arizona. We're living in a big house with a fenced in backyard for the dogs and we love it. We've been seeing lots of cool new birds, and both Sonja and I are compiling growing lists of new species. In fact, just today we both saw our first Bridled Titmouse! We also got to see our first javelina a couple days ago. Well, at least the butt of a javelina as it ran into the bushes on the side of the road one evening as we drove home.

I also started work last week at "The Castle" (pictured below). It's pretty darn cool. I've already gotten to go inside of it, too.
Now that we finally have our internet up and running I'll be posting fairly regularly once again. And when I figure out how to display the pictures from our drive down the AlCan, I'll post those, too.

I see UPS finally got your modem to ya!! You guys sure look different standing in the desert instead of a snow covered mountain!! Glad you like it! Can't wait to come...Sarah is excited to see the "castle" she studied in school last year & we want to see the Grand Canyon too!! Of course it will be nice to see you guys & the BUBS too!! :o) The lizards can stay, but make sure ALL the spiders, snakes & scorpions are OUT of the house!!

And BOOM, life is now in the desert. Yay! Glad that the team made it safely. Sounds like the picket fence and the dogs are in place . . . what's next?

Another great phone call from a past WEI person this evening, Ranger Paul. I'm finally ready to work with you on setting up an email group or reunion page, if you are still willing. Let me know . . .

The cost of war in Iraq - "java script error"

How much is that in Euros?

I've yet to meet a liberal or conservative bird...
