Quotes

Farry-Jennings, who had no idea what to expect when she went to Alaska ( "I am not really a mountain or wilderness person and I confess I thought of Alaska as, well, basically Antarctica or something." ), hopes to get back there soon
Daily Bucket: Wild Florida--Orb-Weaver Spiders —by Lenny Flank : "OK, most people don't like spiders. Especially the big ones. But spiders play an important role in our ecosystem. Many of them have fascinating lifestyles and habits. And despite their large size, gigantic webs and fearsome appearance, Florida's orb-weaving spiders are harmless to humans. Anyone who has ever spent some time roaming in Wild Florida has likely had the experience of walking along, minding your own business, and suddenly feeling a silken web pressing against your face like a volleyball net. Congratulations—you just met one of our orb-weaver spiders. With its tropical climate and its abundance of insect life, Florida is spider heaven. We have hundreds of known species, and probably hundreds more that have not yet been studied and scientifically described. During the day, you are likely to see some of our Jumping Spiders--little metallic-looking things with two big eyes that watch you curiously. Jumpers are believed to be among the most intelligent of spiders. At night, you may also see some Wolf Spiders--big hairy things with green-glowing eyes. Like Jumping Spiders, Wolf Spiders don't make webs, but wander around in search of prey. In springtime, male Wolf Spiders, looking for females, often wander inside houses, where they sometimes fall into the sink or the bathtub and can't climb back out, scaring the bejesus out of the homeowner in the morning."
