Everyone knows or has met a weasel in their lifetime, but very few have been photographed on the back of a flying woodpecker! But as the photographer of the now famous weasel on a woodpecker picture, Martin Le-May and his wife, Ann, realized as they watched the photo flight unfold in an east London park on Monday that the weasel was trying to eat the bird, but the woodpecker took off in flight, eventually landing & in a struggle tossing the weasel off, and both went their separate ways, one still flying and the weasel still hungry!
So this coming weekend is that dreaded weekend that we lose that precious hour of sleep on Saturday night by the time we wake up Sunday! Where did all this start? I had always heard it was Ben Franklin who came up with this clock changing idea, but it turns out it was actually proposed by a guy who wanted to spend more time adding to his insect collection. If that’s the case, we’re still trying to work the bugs out twice a year resetting our body clocks for the week after it happens both times! And does it really save that much energy, are there more accidents when it happens in the days after, and what states or countries ignore this entire practice of resetting our clocks anyway? All the answers are here on this video!

Leonard Nimoy, the Hollywood actor who, true to Mr. Spock’s words, had a long and prosperous career as the supremely logical and cerebral science officer Mr. Spock from Star Trek, has died. He was 83. Nimoy was rushed to UCLA Medical Center just over a week ago following a 911 call for severe chest pains due to chronic obstructive pulmonary disease Nimoy blamed on his smoking earlier in life. “I quit smoking 30 years ago. Not soon enough. I have COPD. He urged his fans to “quit now!!” As he always did, Nimoy signed off with the acronym LLAP, short for “Live Long and Prosper,” his Star Trek character’s most celebrated phrase. Nimoy died Friday at 8:40 a.m. at his home in Bel Air. His granddaughter, Dani, said on Twitter that the cause of death was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nimoy made his debut as the somber Spock on NBC’s Star Trek, which debuted on Sept. 8, 1966. He went on to play or voice the half-Vulcan, half-human on live-action shows, cartoons, films, video games, etc. all the way through J.J. Abrams’ movie sequel Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), an amazing span of nearly 50 years!
