Mystery Hot Spot

Something strange in the Los Padres National Forest.

No volcanic activity detected, but the ground is up to 600 degrees.

Martian tripods perhaps?

We Eat Apple!

Our new iMac G5 came today, and so we now have it set up for all to use.

Sabina wanted to know all about it. "Why is it so dark in there?" I explained that the computer was asleep because nobody was using it. "What does the apple mean?" I tried to explain that the company that made the computer called itself Apple.

"Apple?! Apple?! We eat apple! Because it's food! We don't call ourselves apple, just Sabina and Sabina!"

Burger King Drones

Is it a bad thing when your four year old knows the Burger King drive-thru order by heart?

Dad: I'd like a BK Veggie Value meal...
Sabina: No mayo!
Sabina: Do we have all the food?
Dad: I think so...
Sabina: Is there a Diet Coke?
Dad: No, mommy's not with us this time...

The Great Termite Massacre of 2005

Summer brings with it neighborhood walks after dinner. Dandelions and daisies and dirt are the main attractions for the children, but this night the main attraction was a log in a vacant lot with lots of termite swarmers crawling all over it.

In the mind of a four year old, it is only logical that since the termites will shed their wings and burrow into the log, that the termites need help removing said wings. Soon, two year olds are heard to say "I take wings off!"

It wasn't long before a darker side appeared. "Come on, Mikaela! Let's kill them so they can be dead! Remember, we're dieing them!" Mikaela decided to lovingly carry one around with her. She didn't notice when the head or legs were removed...

Many termites knew the feeling to be squished by a toddler that evening, I assure you.
