Good Gawd, they're everywhere!

More turkey vulture stuff. I can't seem to get away from them.

The other day, Lorelei was watching "Go, Diego, GO!" ( a show on Nick Jr. and Noggin).

The show is about Dora's cousin Diego, a young animal rescuer. Very cute. You should tune in sometime. (If you are the parent of preschoolers, you probably already do)


When Diego is saving an animal (and it's usually a cool South American animal like chinchillas or
pygmy marmosets), if they come across a 'scary' animal, they don't say "Oh, no! Jaguars EAT chinchillas!"....they say "Oh, no! Chinchillas are AFRAID of jaguars!"

No reason to elevate blood pressures in the preschool demographic, right?



Anyway...
I don't remember what animal was being rescued here (the jaguar in the corner is Diego's sidekick), but whatever it was, it was afraid of...........................
TURKEY VULTURES!

TVs on TV
(Look how concerned Baby Jaguar is!)
Thought of Lynne. Again. Had to post it.





One more thing.

Would anyone like to see a baby picture of EARL?????

I saw a vulture comic in my friend's office yesterday. It has a picture of some vultures sitting on a tree with the grim reaper walking by. The vultures say "Love your work!"

Eh... maybe you have to see it to appreciate it.

You know, this reminds me of a few years back when I took my kids to the Nutcracker Ballet at Christmastime. They no longer let the mice fight with the tin soldiers! They took away their swords and guns! I'm not keen on violence but it really wasn't that bad and it was the only part that interested my son! I suppose with preschool children we still need to be deleicate, but when they get older it is important to let them know how nature works.

And that baby picture? Ugh!

Oh, and I love Patrick's comment! LOL!

Go Diego Go is VERY popular in this house. My kids not only know the theme song but also quite a few Spanish phrases - which is awesome!

But I cannot stand the Diego theme song!
