Unexpected view

I guess jays are not really typical birds in the big cities since they are more common in the forests and parks. So, it was quite a surprise to see this baby jay on the hood of my car. After one of his first flights he was obviously taking a pause.

just got over a nasty cold

Ok, what a cold is I almost forgot since the last one that I got must have happened in late winter 03/04. Some sportive cycling even in cold and rainy weather obviously improves the immune system. So, I was of the strong believe that now, after this long hard winter where almost everybody got sick I again would have made it through the “cold season” but wrong, finally I got one too right before easter and it came even with fever.

If someone asks me how my easter festivities were – they didn’t take place at all, even the easter bunny was apparantely avoiding the germs in the apartment and stayed away. So, if you wondered why there wasn’t really much to read on these pages, this was the reason.
