If you are reading via feed, you'll have to click to the blog, I guess. It's embedded in a widget or I'd put it in the feed.

While I'm on that, you need to go check out Dr. Leap's blog. He has some great posts on there about what's happening on the election front and in our
Dr. Rob, that brings me to another question: What do you get when you cross a chicken and a llama?
