  1. “the ‘pranks with planks’ theory seems an inadequate explanation to me. “

    Wow…they really can’t think of a human explanation for these snow circles. Whoever made them did a good job though. I want to make some crop circles or snow circles now…

  2. Snow circles – so much crazy. “She couldn’t hear the choir of angels, only I could”. That’s a sign of something, right there.

    I admire the guy who got his cat to sit still for wrapping. Mine like to “help” me wrap things, but would shred me and the paper if I tried to wrap them up.
