I’ve got nothing to say except that our plumbing clogged this afternoon, and water from our kitchen sink AND our washing machine ended up in our bathtub, which I had to empty a with a bucket to keep it from overflowing onto the floor. How’s your day going?
See ya on the Net,

Years ago, while standing in my driveway at night, a frog hopped onto my foot. I probably screamed (wouldn’t you?) but when I saw what it was, I bent down to pick him up. We kept the frog for awhile, feeding him live crickets and naming him Hoppy, before releasing him into a wetlands preserve near our house. These sites are for you, Hoppy. Wherever you may be.
All About Frogs
“Frogs are members of the zoological class called Amphibia. Amphibians are cold-blooded (or poikilothermic) vertebrate animals. They differ from reptiles in that they lack scales and generally return to water to breed.” From facts to fun, All About Frogs covers all the froggie bases. For school reports, you’ll find “true, weird and wacky facts” as well as a brief explanation of the environment threats faced by frogs. For pet owners, there is a guide to buying your first frog, and an FAQ covering common questions.
American Museum of Natural History: Frogs: A Chorus of Colors
This AMNH site is my frog pick of the day, with frog sounds, a Dart Poison Frog Vivarium (visit to learn why the dart poison frogs on display at the museum in New York are actually harmless), a peek into the work of the museum’s professional herpetologists, and fun frog facts. “Frogs were the first land animals with vocal cords. Male frogs have vocal sacs – pouches of skin that fill with air. These balloons resonate sounds like a megaphone, and some frog sounds can be heard from a mile away.”
The Exploratorium’s online frog exhibit brings us well-written articles, illustrated with photos and video clips. The lead feature, The Amazing Adaptable Frog, is a must see, as is the click-and-hear (ribbit, ribbit) Frog Tracker exhibit. For something a little different, venture beyond biology with Tales and Tours, where you can become acquainted with Frog City, Louisiana or learn about Frog Myths Across Cultures.

Quote of the Week
“We think too small, like the frog at the bottom of the well. He thinks the sky is only as big as the top of the well. If he surfaced, he would have an entirely different view.” ~~ Mao Tse-Tung (aka Mao Zedong) ~~ (26 December 1893 – 9 September 1976) a Chinese revolutionary, political theorist and Communist leader.
