How much is that doggie in the garbage? It’s free!

In Mexico dogs live and die by their wits in the streets and hump the heaven out each other every chance they get. And since this is a Catholic country and dogs typically don’t own calendars the birth rate is crazy high. We have done our share of rescuing, like most other immigrants/part time residents [...]

“Well shone, Moon. Truly, the moon shines with a good grace”

“The Sun goes down. The Moon comes up. You go out and look at the sky. Observing the eclipse is that easy.” Thanks NASA. They go on, “A lunar eclipse happens when the Moon passes through the shadow of Earth.” duh. And then the final insult, “Earth’s shadow is different [from yours] because, unlike you, [...]
