Well…that could be…interesting…at times.  Although Face the Nation looks like quite the whiny wanker festivus, doesn’t it?

Reader Sharon sent me this peaceful shot of a heron flying over Lake Michigan.  I’ve been trying to pin down just what sort of heron this is — it looks quite a bit like a Great Blue, but I’m just not positive.  Anyone else want to take a stab at identification on this one?

The beautiful water, stretching out across the lake, with the sailboats in the back right just spoke to a sense of calm that I thought we would all find useful this morning.  The peanut has been running a fever since yesterday, and my momma duties are pretty substantial at the moment as we try and figure out what’s going on with her.  So my apologies in advance if I am less-than-attentive here.  My child comes first, and I’m sure you guys understand.
