Behold, this magnificent story about a marvelous creature -- the Lord Howe stick insect, Dryococelus australis -- thought to be extinct but then miraculously found on a single plant on a craggy remote rock island. It is a triumph of science and human effort and most of all, perseverance of a fascinating species. "Six-Legged Giant Finds Secret Hideaway, Hides For 80 Years." Excellent.
NinjaHead resides with a muffin-baking woman known herein as Herself. Herself has a Beloved Husband, with whom she shares three nearly-grown Offspring. When she is not writing Things, Herself nurtures a visceral fondness for small furry creatures. The household menagerie, which has varied in size and composition over the years, presently contains a minuscule middle aged chihuahua and a most mild-mannered senior chihuahua. Someday, there will be more critters, for she loves them tremendously.
