    I get Sphinx moths up in the Sierras around my cabin. I call it the mouse head moth as the head is so large and "furry" that it's hard to believe it's an insect. They appear for only a few weeks just...

    My dad hooked his finger last summer. When it didn't come out easy down to the emergency room we went. He also got a shot.

    Do not stand at my grave and weep,
    I am not there; I do not sleep.
    I am a thousand winds that blow,
    I am the diamond glints on snow,
    I am the sun on ripened grain,
    I am the gentle autumn rain....

    Depending on how you get there, the Grand Tetons are worth seeing. That's the National Park next door to Yellowstone. If you're researching the area you'll come across it.
