Maybe this is a bit of a tangent from my usual topics but I was so surprised I had to share: The Washington Post had this article the other day and I couldn't help but wonder if here in Nebraska we were missing our acorns too. Imagine: acorns, altogether missing! Well, we walked our daily mile with the dog and we looked and counted and scanned every block. How many did we find? One little acorn--just one! Granted, we have some pretty fluffy, chunky squirrels running around but...it's all a little unsettling. Are the acorns missing in your neighborhood, too? Hmmmm!
