The widget thing (below) worked! Here are repesentatives of two species meeting each other at the Aquarium. The heat seems to be moderating a little bit here. We might even get some of our beloved inland fog, which usually makes the nights so comfortable here at the south end of San Francisco Bay. The excitement of so many electric transformers burning out in such a short space of time leads many people here to wonder why they were not being replaced with the desert-type that they use in Las Vegas and Palm Springs. But they are not--they are just reinstalling the type that is suitable for Northern California conditions , , , And so it goes. I continue to have surprising amounts of fun with Flickr.
