Black swans, February 4

I had some time to kill Saturday morning after dropping Laura off at the dentist's office, so I headed into Asbury Park with my camera. I stopped at Sunset Lake when I saw a bunch of birds. The most interesting were a pair of black swans.

Stunning! The "heart" one would make a lovely Valentines Day card.

That's a nice photo essay.

We don't seem to have many swans here. And I'm not sure I've ever seen a black swan.

Anyway, thanks for the photo page.

You could dedicate the bottom photo to the lurkers who never stop and comment.

Y'know, Shelley, I wasn't really thinking of that when I wrote that caption....

(I don't mind lurkers, really. I've been on the net long enough to know that they way outnumber the number of people who actually participate; back in the days when I was using Usenet and looking at the statistics, it was about 10:1 lurkers to posters, and I don't think that's changed.)

What do you mean there is no cat?

"You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat."

- Albert Einstein, explaining radio


There used to be a cat
