Nighttime mews, trippy skippy KitKats... a might chillier on the tame prairie today, and it snowed... well, sort of snowed... they were tiny, tiny wet flakes of snow that didn't stick... kinda like a snow rain... anyhoo, yesterday morning there was a thin layer of snow on the ground that melted during the afternoon when the sun was high and bright... yep, another long day for this Big Cat... and she's darn worn out.

THANK YOU! To everyone who participated in the SPRING FLING BLOG HOP. The winners have been chosen. Congrats to one and all.
You can still head on over to this hop... March 20-25 ~ Springtime in the Country ~cowboycharm.blogspot.com~ at the Kougar's RAWHIDE AND SUNDOWN ROMANCE blog ~rawhideandsundown.blogspot.com~
The Kougar penned Volcano's Weekly Angelic Forecast... which is posted at Kougar Kisses below, and at these two sites ~ sirenbookstrand.blogspot.com & ~ titlemagic.blogspot.com ~
So, the Kougar started a flash scene for her Tuesday post at SHAPESHIFTER SEDUCTIONS.... However! She doesn't get to complete it, and will have to think/dream up another scene... since the one she thought of would ruin the storyline of Pat's ongoing flash story about Cochrane, the monster hunter.

Overture, curtain, lights. This is it, the night of nights. The players have been introduced, the plot is rolling, the stage is set. That stage is Talbot’s Peak.

Out at the exit, the police release the Scooby Gang at dawn. They have no real charges to hold them on—everyone agrees Cochrane, currently MIA, was the only one with a gun—and the cops need the cells for the drunk drivers and brawlers that litter the strip every Saturday night. Even Barry receives a “Get Out of Jail Free” card. While the others were ditching their knives, he was flushing his last bag of Panama Red. Barry’s from California. He knows the drill.
Orchestra for the eyeballs ... this is how Stuart Davis described his experience of looking at the Voynich Manuscript. Okay, as a writer, the Kougar must use this poetic description... it's just too awesome.
COAST TO COAST AM ~ The Voynich Manuscript
Host: George Knapp
Guests: Stuart Davis, Stephen Bax
The Voynich manuscript is an illustrated codex hand-written in an unknown system that dates back to the early 15th century. To this day, no one has succeeded in deciphering the text. Spiritual artist and musician Stuart Davis and Professor of Linguistics Stephen Bax joined George Knapp to discuss the mystery behind the manuscript and how Prof. Bax is making strides in cracking its enigmatic code. "The illustrations, when coupled with this puzzling script, communicate very clearly that there is a multi-faceted, rich, textured mystery behind this book," Davis remarked. As the world is faced with increasing extinctions of languages, the Voynich manuscript, which has been owned by a number of intriguing people over the centuries, offers an opportunity to possibly recover a lost language, he added. ~coasttocoastam.com/show/2014/03/23~

Science Develops Method of Communicating with Animals
Thursday, March 20, 2014
In recent years, researchers have been exploring methods of interacting with animals in an attempt to understand how they really feel about their lives.
Dr. Ian Duncan, emeritus chair in animal welfare at the University of Guelph, Canada, claims to have developed a system that allows him to ask questions of and receive answers from animals. Years of research using a variety of subjects, from livestock to domestic pets, has allowed him to develop the process, which he says is purely scientific. ~unknowncountry.com/news/science-develops-method-communicating-animals~

Maryland man may have found two lost or forgotten photos of Lincoln’s funeral procession
Written by Michael E. Ruane
In the first photograph, the crowd outside the church seems to be waiting for something to come down the street. Children stand up front so they can see. Women, in the garb of the mid-1800s, shield themselves from the sun with umbrellas. White-gloved soldiers mill around. And a few people have climbed a tree for a better view. ~washingtonpost.com/local/maryland-man-may-have-found-two-forgotten-photos-of-lincolns-funeral-procession/2014/03/19/8f5f5fa6-ade6-11e3-96dc-d6ea14c099f9_story.html
