Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to all! Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been a busy few days. Beth and I spent a pretty low-key New Year's Eve playing games with her 6-year old niece, my sister, and her fiance. I highly recommend the board game Cranium for everyone. It is awesome for people of all ages. In fact, all of the games that I've played by the Cranium company are great.

Earlier in the day on New Year's Eve my sister's fiance took me to his hunting club's property where he frequently sees Pileated Woodpeckers. We tried to find them, but a distant call was all we were able to get. This place was woodpecker central though. In the area where the Pileateds had been seen, we saw Downy, Hairy, Red-Bellied, and Northern Flicker. We also saw White-breasted Nuthatches, a screaming Red-tailed Hawk, American Tree Sparrow, and a tree full of bluebirds.

Now it's time to go celebrate the coming of the 4th Indiana Jones movie! Let's hope George Lucas doesn't screw this up like he did Star Wars!

I agree... Cranium is a blast. Happy New Year!

My own kids were playing a Cranium game on NYE..."Cariboo" or something.

Happy New Year, Patrick and Beth!
