Bringing its A game to this year’s Easter festivities is…

the Automeris larra caterpillar, from South America!

This one gets all the Easter colors in one festive package…and isn’t afraid of showing it off.

Later, it brings it down a notch, changing from an eye-popping caterpillar to ride out the Spring as a simply  stunning moth. Well done, Automeris larra!

Gingerbread manor

Posted: December 15th, 2015 | Author: | Filed under: T Writes | Tags: , | No Comments »

Every December the White House decks the halls in holiday glory. Among the glitz and glitter, a gingerbread house has stood front and center since the Nixon administration. This year’s model used 250 pounds of gingerbread dough, 150 pounds of dark chocolate, 25 pounds of gum paste, 25 pounds of pulled and sculpted sugar, and 25 pounds of icing. That’s a house any gingerbread president would be proud to call home!

A new war on Christmas

George from Portland, OR writes:

Dear T,

I have a new holiday story to tell. It’s Rude-olph, the Rudest Reindeer. Forget about Rudolph. Rude-olph could chew him up for breakfast and spit him out at lunch. He’ll tell you you’re really smart…on Opposites Day. P.S. It’s only ten dollars. How many can I put you down for?

T replies:

Hey, George! The holidays are not a time for disrespect and bad manners. And charging ten dollars for this story is nine dollars too many. All I can say is that I hope Rude-olph learns to overcome his rudeness and is able to join in the festivities in a considerate and neighborly manner.
