I Am Envious of New England

I am envious of eastern New England, which this week experienced a huge snow storm.  As usual, the Washington area, where I am, received under an inch.  

I would like the Washington area to have a giant blizzard.

I would also like the Washington area to have a giant lizard. 

But the giant lizard should wait for the summer, because I wouldn't want the lizard to get too cold.

In the News: Slash Is a Big Fan of the Tuatara

  Perhaps it shouldn't come as a surprise, but Slash is a big fan of the tuatara. And I don't mean the band of that name, but the actual rhynchocephalian reptile:
    If your name is Hendrix and you're a Hamilton-dwelling tuatara, a rock and roll legend would like to meet you.
    Slash, the former lead guitarist with 1980s/90s band Guns N' Roses, said he'd like to meet the city's resident tuatara when he's in town next month for his Claudelands show, alongside his band Myles Kennedy and the Conspirators.
