Recognizing the Spirit in daily life.

Finding Bimbo in Little Mexico

Grace and I went to Little Mexico today, an area around the intersection of Kenilworth and East-West Hwy that has a high concentration of Mexican immigrants. As Grace often points out, while there are large numbers of Latin Americans in the DC area, most of them are Salvadoran, not Mexican. She was specifically looking for supplies for El Dios de los Muertos (Day of the Dead), November 1st.

Ansel Adams

The Golden Gate Before the Bridge

EB and I went to see the Ansel Adams exhibit at the Corcoran Gallery today. I have long been a fan. (Who isn't?) Even so the exhibit surprised me.

The Great Gull Getaway

This arrived in my emailbox yesterday.  Anyone who thinks there's no connection between humans and other animals is out of touch with reality.  Hey, I like Doritos too!

A seagull in Scotland has developed the habit of stealing chips from a neighborhood shop.

The seagull waits until the shopkeeper isn't looking, and then walks into the store and grabs a snack-size bag of cheese Doritos.

Once outside, the bag gets ripped open and shared by other birds.

The seagull's shoplifting started early this month when he first swooped into the store in Aberdeen, Scotland, and helped himself to a bag of chips. Since then, he's become a regular. He always takes the same type of chips.

Customers have begun paying for the seagull's stolen bags of chips because they think it's so funny.
