Oddities

Happy Birthday Elvis and Stephen Hawking. Wouldn't that have been an interesting joint birthday party? Can you see it, a big bash at Graceland? Jailhouse Rock playing in the background while a seminar on astro-physics goes on down in the Jungle Room. I knew that Hawking had been diagnosed with ALS at an early age but I didn't realize that his doctors gave him only 3 years to live. Maybe they were confused and really meant to say 30 years. Not only did he become a well known physicist and author but he appeared on both Star Trek TNG and the Simpsons. That's when you know you've really made it.

Warning: Non Sequiter. Go here and check out the moose. Really. It's a moose farm in Russia. I really want one now but I don't think it would fit in my apartment even though I have de-cluttered. And the cats might not like it. I am thinking of getting some fish though. Fresh water. Any advice Alec?

Lauren has a freshwater tank in her room - a 5.5 gallon home to a pink male betta fish named Candy and 2 neon tetra. I'd love to add a female betta. That might be pushing the bioload a bit.

I read the moose site in Russian (don't laugh, I took Russian in college). Unfortunately, we didn't learn much moose-pertinent vocabulary and the site didn't seem to have any information about chess (which we covered extensively). I think you're right - a moose would probably crowd a NYC apartment.

I would not laugh, I took a year of Russian in high school. Also, I speak Serbo-Croatian. The Serbs use the Cyrillic alphabet too. I can get the jist of something in Russian but I'm slow.
