Today is MAPLE SYRUP SATURDAY. Here's to sticky sweet goodness!

quiz point totals
Soon, I will have to reconfigure my blog just to accommodate the ever-lengthening point summary... Ariel has once more pulled ahead of rivals Alex and Dean, while Jason has made a surprising leap forward, and quiz newcomers Amie, Pauline, and Ron have managed to achieve pretty respectable totals for people who just started this week. And Vin just better start gettin' ready for that Smartypants poke in the nose!
Alex = 6
Amie = 3
Ariel = 8
Dean = 6
Drew = 2
El = 1
Gabby = 3
Jason = 5
Jay = 2
Jonette = 1
Kate = 2
Katrina = 4
Pauline = 2
Ron = 2
Vin = 3
Alex = 1
Ariel = 2
Dean = 1
Dino = 1
Gabby = 1
Jason = 2
Katrina = 1
Vin = 6

Who was Chef Boyardee?

answer to Thursday's question
It's a fairly well-known fact that every year, exactly on March 19, St. Joseph's Day, the swallows of the Mission of San Juan Capistrano return to their sunny California home to rebuild their nests after their yearly migration. What was only recently determined is that they travel with the same clockwork regularity almost halfway across the world-- to the city of Goya in Argentina, where they spend the winter months from October to February. They leave California on the Day of San Juan, October 23, and fly 24,000 kilometers to get to Argentina, later reversing the journey when they leave Goya at sunrise on February 18.

Flying high: Pauline, Jason, Dean, Ariel, Ron, Amie, and Alex. Once more, no Smartypants. Are you guys (gasp) starting to take me seriously?

This site is prettiest if you set your monitor resolution to 1024 by 768... but I won't hold it against you if you don't. Honest.

Nikki Alfar is really not as sexy as El's illustration would have you believe... but she doesn't mind if you think of her that way.
