Duck Blog

First the ducks in the park, then the ducks on my street. What is the city coming to, I ask you?

To dispell the notion that I only post random animal pictures, here's a link to an article about "commonplace books," which seem surprisingly blog-like:

The first commonplace books appeared during the Renaissance and contained hand-copied excerpts from manuscripts--and, eventually, from printed books--along with personal annotations. As Garvey describes, these were succeeded by something closer to what we think of as scrapbooks. In them, people of a literary bent would paste photographs or cuttings from magazines and newspapers. Between the keepsakes, they would scribble appropriate scraps of prose or poetry, or associated thoughts that might profit from later revision.

I have put you in the http://www.bigblogzoo.com under the category:


I would like to invite you to try the new folksonomy feature. If you add your blog to the animal world it then lists it on the home page. You could also write a wikie entry entry if you like.
