I have spent says doing things electronic and computerine.  Time for a break.

A damp Oriole.  The male Orioles should be leaving soon, alas.

This fellow… um… gal… specializes in eating fish from Sabine Pond.

Something different. 

On Sabine Pond, by Monet.

More Orioles.


Did the ancient Romans have recipes for Baltimore Oriole tongues… and grape jelly?

    Fr. Z, don’t rub your eyes after chopping that habanero. I *love* that particular shade of orange.

  2. Fr. Z, my wife Julie loves the photos of your birds. Especially the one with “booya” in it.

    Booya? Is it time for advertising St. Agnes’ Fall Festival already?

    Wow! The Chile pepper. More physical evidence that God loves us. Why else would He ensconce the entire mystery of penance and purgation, of joy and suffering, in one little seed pod.
    Laudedur Iesus Christus!

    Mmmm, habanero peppers. The king of peppers. Toast ’em lightly in the oven or in a pan on the stove to release the fragrance (heavenly floral). Cut one open and take a big whiff–no other pepper has such a smell! Then eat sparingly (for me, one piece about the size of a nail-head per bite of meat or rice is more than enough). One little pepper might last you several days. Enough capsaicin there to choke a horse (though I’m told Guatemalan Indians can munch them like plums with no visible effects). Your endorphins will thank you, though.

    Love all your ‘nature’ photos, Fr. Z!

    ‘On Sabine Pond, by Monet’-classic!

    The ‘Booyah’ bird pic is especially funny!

    Alas, the Habanero has been superseded in the heat department by the Bhut Jolokia (aka ‘Ghost Pepper”, Up to 1 million Scoville units, 4× the Habanero
