I love the newts too! They do get excited by things, especially puddles, without a bit a water in the winter they can't breed. Another easier to see sign of winter are the elephant seals at Ano Nuevo...going there on Tuesday, can't wait!

... yeah, I think most animals get fairly excited about breeding! The last time I was at Ano Nuevo, some elephant seal bulls got into a pretty heated scuffle over a harem - quite a show.

Kirk, this post reminds me of our last hike together, the last time I came out west (too long ago): remember that newt wrestling with the worm twice its length? As I recall, the newt finally prevailed by biting the worm in half, then choking it down one half at a time.

All this said, I do agree with your assessment of the newt's general demeanor - steady as it goes. No doubt a key to their survival. And I dig that wacky mural in the background of those 50s partyers, daddy-o! Where'd you dig up that image?

I don't know where the image comes from, but I CAN tell you that the garb they are wearing is schwag from "Crusader Rabbit," the first animated show made specifically for television. The concept was test marketed in 1948, while the initial episode - Crusader vs. the State of Texas - aired on KNBH in Los Angeles, California on August 1, 1950.

Here's a link to that first episode.

The great lesson here is that even in television's infancy, America's secret genius was to ramp up the marketing and manufacture of associated "plastic crap" to her horrid spawn, all while everyone was busy being distracted by the US invasion of Korea and Mao Zedong was still trying to figure out Agrarian Reform. Hearts and minds, indeed!

BTW, I'm still waiting on delivery of my MonkeyFaceNews Holiday Codpiece. Please continue to re-submit my check, as my bank assures me that funds are now securely in place.

Yeah, right ... if it hadn't been for the "distraction" of the Korean War, American consumers would have caught on to the unsustainability of their plastic consumption, gone back to making toys out of corn husks and rags, and demanded earlier environmental legislation, thus preventing global warming ... and the people of South Korea wouldn't resent us for preventing their participation in the glorious workers' paradise that their northern brethren enjoy!

But who are we to stand in the way of higher life forms evolving from extremophile bacteria? The longer we postpone the ecological suicide of our own species, the more innocent life forms we'll drag down with us.
