Oyster Roundup – Bears, Bones and a Brrrricane!

~Thick and fast they came at last, and more, and more, and more! Enjoy today’s dose of random stuff on the half-shell! Links in the titles. Brrrrrricane Makes Landfall The Bering Sea megastorm that made landfall yesterday on the West Coast of Alaska did damage to buildings, caused massive erosion in some areas, and flooding in others. So far, thank goodness, there have been no reports of injury or loss of life.

However, the download seems to be taking FOR-EVA! (It couldn’t POSSIBLY have anything to do with the video game being played on the other computer…nooooo…) Ya’ll will have to wait until tomorrow for that. However, I have a couple of still photos off of my little Sony-version of a “Flip” (called a “Bloggie”…yeah, I hate the name too…). They aren’t the quality of my Nikon pics but you’ll see those tomorrow as…
