All I know is the pollen turn all our cars bright YELLOW

The photo above shows a layer of pollen covering a small pond in Disney World, Orlando, Florida. In sunny central and southern Florida, tree pollen is in the air in mid February to about mid March -- much of the pollen this time of year is pine and sweet gum. When it settles to the bottom of this watery environment, it will form a distinct veneer that, when sampled in years to come, will give paleoclimatologists knowledge of what the climate may have been like in this particular area. Similarly, by obtaining deeper cores of this pond's sediment, it can be ascertained what the conditions were like here hundreds or thousands of years ago. Analyzing the sampled pollen indicates the type and abundance of vegetation that was prevalent when the pollen layer was deposited. Because the outer wall of a pollen grain is extremely resistant, it is possible to retrieve pollen spores that were laid down millions of years ago. Photo taken on February 19, 2011.

On my way to Boston

.and they were loading this Antonov Cargo Transporter at our little airport. HUGE! Rumor has it that it's hauling cargo to Afghanistan and based on the area we live that's likely.

Triple E:The cargo ships so big they could carry all the tea in China (or at least a lot of cheap imports)

The Maersk web page on these ships shows routing from the Far East via the Suez canal to Europe. So they will be well in range of Somali Pirates. Irresistable targets, imagine the possible ransom demanded!

Dolphin directly at you!


A dolphin bursts from the sea and flies like a bullet straight at the camera in the Chanonry Narrows, Moray Firth, Scotland. This picture forms part of one British man's collection of the world's most northern population of Bottlenose Dolphins.
