A couple of weeks ago, I went to a meet-up at the Ipswich River Wildlife Sanctuary with the Boston Gay Women's Meet Up. We hiked into the woods and the birds, mostly black-capped chickadees, flew onto our outstretched hands to feed on the seeds and peanuts we were offering. It was truly one of the most wonderful experiences I've ever had. I had foolishly forgotten to bring the memory card for my camera, but some of the other women got some great shots and posted them on the Meet Up website.

I bought a cup of coffee 'to go' today and I am marveling at the lid. Remember when 'to go' cup lids were just flat pieces of plastic? Truckers figured out that you could tear a notch in the lid and safely drink the coffee with lower risk of spillage. Next came little perforations that did essentially the same thing, but were more, you know, official. Now lids have a shoulder and a little hole for sipping. Well, folks, I'm drinking out of the Next Generation of 'to go' lids. Yes, the little hole has a cover that slides open and closed, just like you'd find on a travel mug. Its incredibly fancy and very cool.
