Hummingbirds are Cool!

We have them around my office. This article describes research about how they fly.

They are definitely my favorite bird. I wonder if there is a country whose national bird is the hummingbird. That would be cool. I'd move there!

The article says that giving honey to hummingbirds gives them a tongue infection which kills them, so don't do that please!

Found my older brother

My mom had to give up a baby for adoption in England in 1954. we never found out what happened to him.

Last Friday, I was using google to see what my family in Ireland is up to. I'm naturally nosy that way. Quite by accident, I came across someone who was trying to locate my mother. I established contact with them and found that it was my older brother!

Today I was able to speak with him. Everybody on both sides of the pond is really excited. My mom is in a nursing home now, so we'll be telling her Saturday. My brother wants to visit her very soon.

To me, this is the most amazing consequence of the Internet. I can't tell you the number of connections I've been able to establish, maintain and recover by email and google. This is a great time to be alive for sure.
