Lily's Den


A lot of people are engaged in the "Lily-watch" as the hibernating bear has her cubs in a hidden den in the northwoods of Minnesota. She already had the first cub but is still in hard labor so another one is on its way. I stopped watching for a while because I couldn't stand to see her suffering. However, there are well over 49,000 other folks logged on currently. I can imagine that after the cubs arrive, the number of viewers will soar.

Hi Ms Sparrow,
What a nice idea to leave the Christmas lights up It's so cold and dead in January Everything disappeared here on twelfth night.
