My bride and I were quite concerned with our discovery-we're both bio majors and teachers. We knew that the likelihood of survival would be remote unless momma bird returned. My daughter made a few calls to pet stores, animal rescue centers, and my sister who happens to be a vet but their news was less than promising. These birds seemed to be to young to survive without momma's care.
We kept the nest inside for the night because it was going to drop into the 30s(just above 0 C for my aussie friends) and then we placed the nest on a ladder near the lamp in hopes that momma would return.
Well, the day went by and despite the newness spring provides, these baby birds were not meant to be. It was a sad time for my family. :(

That's my girl!
Today I really let myself down. I went 101 days without missing a photo op of sorts but for some reason day 102 slipped right past me. I never thought it would bother me as much as it is but if anything comes out of this project, it is a promise to myself that this will be the 1 and only photo I will forget this year.

As for the quality of the photo, I was stunned that the resolution was quite good using a BB at 5x from this distance.

It was a great day that started with Chipotle for lunch, followed by rock climbing, Sushi for dinner, and then an incredibly rich chocolate cake for dessert.
Happy Birthday Pea!
Am I getting old?!
I know which one I want, how about you?
So as a result, our home has 4 OSes-OSX, XP pro, Win 7, and Ubuntu.

Now what I find so astonishing, from a science perspective, is the amount of energy plants dedicate towards reproduction.
On a side note, I wonder if forensics would consider using pollen to check for fingerprints? As one can see, my prints are visible on the surface of my car and the clarity of the print is quite good.

I could sure use a DIY Yard Crasher! Anyone seen Ahmed Hassan? It would be great to have 10-20 people to help with this yard.

I've been through the Atlanta airport 2x in 4 days and I am perplexed by these recycling cans. They use electricity to sort the recyclables. To me it would have made more sense to have 3 different containers stacked on top of one another rather than go through the expense of purchasing these electric recycling containers and paying for power. What do you think?

Now I just have to figure out how to stem off the arguments my kids will have over who gets to keep this piece of swag. In any event, thank Google for a wonderful opportunity.

It's a favorite eatery for the Cuevas household so if you are in search of excellent Mexican food, check out El Caporal.
As I was preparing the meal, he mixed the pudding, placed it in the refrigerator, and then added it to the Oreo cookie pie shell to produce the Pudding Ying Yang.

My daughter is handling it well but I couldn't help but give her a big hug after the vigil because I cannot imagine what it is like to lose a child.
