It's hard for a movie with this much gratuitous nudity to bore me as much as Wolf of Wall Street. Occasionally it has some moments but overall it was mostly just tedious. If it were truly bad it might have been more interesti...

I'm watching it for the first time, finishing season 2 tonight. And I agree that the writing is as good as any show I've ever seen. The profanity makes it easy to overlook just how subtle and brilliant a lot of the dialogue is. It's not just Swearengen, EB has some great dialogue too that is almo...

The Montezuma is mostly in the south, south of Tucson. I've been lucky enough to see small flocks several times. My friends who are truly serious birders hate me for it. It's a VERY difficult bird to see and I've just been s...

Have you seen any Montezuma's? I couldn't shoot one of them. Just too rare and gorgeous.

You decorate a tree
You throw it in the yard
It decays and dies
And the snowmen melt
Well I once knew love
I knew how love felt...

Again, that is pure ignorance but a lot of people believe it. Having feeders out helps the ones that are here in the winter. The summer birds are Ruby-throated Hummingbirds. Winter birds are a mix of other species (usually Rufous, Black-c...
