Yes, Japanese dwarf flying squirrels ARE, in fact, the Baby Yodas of the animal world.
Bamboo is the future. Yes. Really. Check out this article at InsideClimateNews.org The Radical Case for Growing Huge Swaths of Bamboo in North America It’s a long read (so get a cuppa and find yourself a comfy chair) but MEGA worth it!
Don’t have time to read a long column? Gotcha. Check out BambooGrove.com.

The Scottish National Gallery, just FYI, is one of my all time fave museums.

Me? I'm gonna hit the rain room, put on REAL pants (versus my day pajamas) and head into MGH for a neuro follow up on my latest seizure. FUN!
Also, today is Wednesday – YES, this is take-out and Mandalorian night. Will we get Japanese or Indian grub? Will I have wine or a hot toddy? There are SO many exhilerating, possibly life changing decisions to be made!
