Look for the puffballs in this video which Wikipedia says "release clouds of brown dust like spores."

It was great to see Irish flags flying in Janesville. I have ancestors who came from Ireland and fought in the Civil War, so an Irish Fest war song captured my attention. (Correction: I should have said, "First Congregational Church")

Don't dare buy a used or new car with checking with Consumer Reports. If you have a library card, you may be able to log onto Consumer Reports from your personal computer. Among other things, Consumer Reports will tell you about car reliability and how much you should pay.

Woodpeckers make homes for many creatures, but they damage human homes...my weekly Janesville Gazette Video (No that's not my roof)
Interesting facts about woodpeckers from Wikipedia: "To prevent brain damage from the rapid and repeated impacts, woodpeckers have evolved a number of adaptations to protect the brain. These include small brain size, the orientation of the brain within the skull (which maximises the area of contact between the brain and the skull) and the short duration of contact. The millisecond before contact with wood a thickened nictitating membrane closes, protecting the eye from flying debris. The nostrils are also protected; they are often slit-like and have special feathers to cover them."
