Comment of the Day!


Mike - great to see everyone when we were in G'ville earlier this month.  We're getting 12" of snow in Wisconsin today, and wishing we were back in FL at the Olson homestead.  Our favorite place for lunch up here is the Blue Spoon Café in Prairie du Sac, WI.

COUNTING ENDANGERED SPECIES FROM ABOVE: The conversation started over a fence dividing two backyards. An ecologist remarked that surveying animals is a pain. His neighbor, an astronomer, said he could see objects in space billions of light years away.  And so began a partnership to adapt tools originally developed to detect stars in the sky to monitor animals on the ground.
