T.G.I.F.: It’s been a long week


The woodpecker is capable of repeatedly pecking the wood of a tree, suffering deceleration in the order of 10,000 m/s.  Read more at @ The Hammock Papers. (Thank you Rob.)

  6. Amazing creatures, but equally annoying as they seek food on parts of your house at 5am! One “pet” I am happy to have left behind in SC.

    Sometimes I have days where life seems to come at me with the same impact this woodpecker is absorbing. Sometimes I send tall against it, and other times I feel like hiding somewhere curled up in a fetal position, and staying there until the pounding stops.

    With Love,
