This squirrel has found a way around the baffle on the pole. Probably jumped from an adjacent tree.

Crayola Time

With all the new high-tech toys it is nice to see kids still enjoy classic Crayola crayons which actually date back to 1903. Check out a history of Crayola crayons and learn how Binney & Smith has colored our world from red barns to black tires.

Third Anniversary

Pixel Pics is three years old today and has been a labor of love, a learning experience and a source of enjoyment. As I look back at more than 900 posts I see a heavy dose of nature and grandchildren. And it is not surprising that this time period also coincides with my renewed interest in the environment and involvement in an environmental stewardship group at our church.

As I look ahead to 2009 the thought of a Dr. Seuss book comes to mind - Oh, the Places You'll Go!
