Blogging at the Holler’s for the Birds!

This woman lives in a tough neighborhood.

I was sitting at my desk, just getting ready to post on birds of the far southern hemisphere, when I looked up and there walked Big-Bob! (All new critters at The Holler get names.) So instead of birds from the far south, you’re gonna get critter action from the Holler’s wild-west.

Of course Big-Bob, a great egret, doesn’t belong here. He belongs at the lake, but this is one of the many things I love about birds, they don’t follow human directions, and they pay no attention to where ornithologists say they should be.

Anyhoo, I grabbed my camera and followed Big-Bob. He was on a mission and unfortunately lizards were on the menu. Meet Fred.

Fred knows us. He is a very large, very old alligator lizard, but he got much smaller when Meep-Meep, the roadrunner, relieved him of his tail, which he is diligently trying to grow back…

The Future of City Mobility

zero-fxsElectric motocycles have best range in city, under 60km/h speed. The issue is to have a model similar in specs with Zero FXS but at a much smaller end user price. The Zero has moto acceleration 3,9s to 100km/h, enough range to make long commuting. The engine and the battery can go up to 700.000km lifetime, with 80.000km / 5years warranty!! @11.000Euro.

People are willing to pay $85 for this sandwich. So why is only one made each day?

Do they deliver? (Yes, from the kitchen to the table.) Do they have Drive-Thru? I think not.

Nwo Report

Emily Faber

Living in New York, high prices can become the norm. You’re paying $13 for a midday salad from the closest no-name lunch spot in your office building, a $54 bar tab might not even get you tipsy, and rent prices tend to come up as frequently in conversation as the weather. When you hear about an $85 sandwich, you might pause for a moment, sure, but it’s too easy to dismiss it another gimmicky trend that the city will have moved on from by the time the seasons change.

But at SakaMai, their $85 beef sandwich is rich not only with the decadent meat responsible for its unusual price tag but with the culture, customs, and history surrounding Japan’s world-renowned but often inaccessible Wagyu beef industry.

And when the New York City restaurant limits their offering to just one sandwich served each day, as intriguing as it…
