I hate to have to admit it, but this guy is one of the good ones… just don’t tell him I said so

Here’s a note one of our amazing volunteers from Bird TLC sent out. It should be noted that a lot of his expensive tools were stolen when we had the break in at Bird TLC a few weeks ago and he still is asking that his birthday gifts be donated to the organization instead of trying to recoup his personal loss. Some say he’s crazy. I say this is the kind of crazy that makes the world a little easier to live in.

From Dave Dorsey:

OK, most people know that I’m a Bird TLC volunteer. One of the things

Phone tapping

I think of the banality of most phone conversations most of us have and wonder if the federal agents in charge of listening in don’t want to blow their brains out halfway through their shifts.

A way to help Bird TLC recoup its burglary losses

Vote for Bird TLC and if we get enough votes, we’ll get $5000. As in Chicago, you can vote early and often. In fact, you can go back to the site and vote every day.

Help us help Alaska’s wild birds. Don’t let the scumbags who stole what little we have win.

Come one, come all

Alaska Public Media (you may know them as KSKA and KAKM) is holding its summer picnic on its campus from 3 to 10 today. Hot dogs and popcorn free. Beer and soda cost just a little. And there are no tote bags involved. No asking for money. Just a thank you to the public for supporting our efforts. I say “our” because I’m a proud board member.

Oh yeah… and there will be live music from local Alaskan bands from 4 til 10. So bring a chair. Bring a blanket to throw on the grass. Bring the family. Food, drinks

Ah Joe Miller

I guess, the more I think about it, even without Sarah in the race, Joe alone will provide endless amusement. Sarah apparently will have to go some lengths to prove she’s still an Alaskan if she wants to run. Then she’ll have to do something about her less than stellar (last time I checked in the low 30’s) favorability rating. Poor Mead Treadwell. He’s apt to get lost in the excitement.

Let the circus commence

Oh please, oh please, oh please, God, let Sarah Palin throw her hat in the ring for Begich’s senate seat. Please. It will provide endless summer amusement on those days when the mosquitoes are too violent to venture out. Sarah versus Joe… Yes!

Does anyone remember this? I do.

In my very distant youth, this was the diving bell found at the end of the Steel Pier in Atlantic City. For a price that I could never afford, you got to cram into it and then it was lowered into the ocean so you could look through those little windows and see the magic of the sea. I can’t believe anyone was brave enough to trust their lives to that piece of metal. But many did and all survived.

Yep, I’ve finally gone over the line

But how can I resist torturing the little dog with her turned up nose and princess attitude. She is clearly begging to be dressed up in ridiculous things. So I give you BuddhaBubba in her brand new pink sunglasses (thanks Auntie Janis) to match her pink cap and pink fleece coat. The complete outfit will be photographed on her as soon as I figure out how to keep the hat on her for longer than two seconds.

So disgusting

Someone broke into Bird TLC and stole our little camera, two laptops and about $200 in petty cash. What sleazeoids! We have so little, we are such a small non-profit, and yet these assholes thought they should take what little we have. We are extremely grateful that they didn’t hurt any of our birds. We are extremely sorry that none of our eagles, hawks or owls were able to get to the thieves and rip their eyeballs out… well, I am, at any rate.
