Comments and Suggestions Page

I would like some great quotes about this blog that I can put into the side bar (see the quote about the Turkish bath from my good friend and finance manager Bill Gates).

Some descriptive phrases or comments or criticisms would not go amiss.

Thanks, love. You're a doll.

The most important lesson in the blog "You Learn Something New (Almost) Everday" is that the well of knowledge never runs dry.

I can't remember who once said it, but I quote:

"Monumental yeti dwarves say horny Lego."

And since it just happens to be an anagram of your blog's title, it seemed prudent to be mentioned when you were looking for pertinent quotes.

Say, horny Lego, is that a monumental dwarf or are you just happy to see me?

HAHAHA!

Thanks, dag, I will cherish it always. (oh and check your email)

I guess I'm saying (after Einstein, I think) that you should want to learn something new every day so you do things differently due to the knowledge...But that's probably thinking too much. Maybe I thought it sounded silly and that fits too...

Stumbled across your site trying to find the gestation period for doves. It's an absolutely fascinating site, BUT I still don't know how long the gestation lasts. Please tell me, and tell me how I can find the site at which the article is archived. Thanks.

Hi Harry, Glad you stopped by! There is no page on my site that explains the incubating period, because my dove's eggs died before they hatched. :(

However, I found you a lovely link that should clear up a few things: Wikipedia seems to think it takes between 14-18 days. So hang in there! You can make it! :)

Upstate NY here. A friend found a nest on top of his air conditioner with a nesting dove watching him unlock his door this evening. Not sure how long nest has been there, but he noticed many small sticks all around the area recently. Now he knows why! How long before the birds are able to fly away after they hatch? Of course the a/c will NOT be used until they are safely on their own. : )
Thanks for any info.

Hi veedubbinalot! Welcome. Looks like your friend is probably in for 2-3 weeks of no AC, so I hope it doesn't get too hot!

There's a link above your comment to the wiki page on doves. And here are a few links to my own story:

Last Monday morning (May 19, 2008 Newport Beach, CA) we woke up to find a mess on our balcony. The culprit -- a male dove who was haphazardly attempting to build a nest for his female companion. I say haphazardly because the materials he provided for the nest continually fell from the pillar ledge of our balcony onto the floor below.

That evening the female was scared from the balcony revealing a newly laid egg precariously balanced on the pillar ledge. Unfortunately, without a nest to support the egg, the egg eventually rolled and fell off the ledge and broke, looking not much unlike morning breakfast prior to turning up the heat under the skillet. So much for evolution.

The couple returned the next morning searching in vain for their vulnerable egg, which lay shattered out of sight on the balcony floor far below the ledge. Sad for the doves loss, we read-up online that doves usually lay eggs in pairs so my girlfriend prepared a human constructed nest made from a nearly discarded shoe box top, and left-over bright green Easter basket grass.

We were proud of our nest and felt it worthy of our love doves so we placed it on the ledge in high hopes they would feel welcome in this strange human-constructed abode. After several days, our love doves never returned, so we finally removed the bizarre-looking shoe box lid & scattered Easter grass from its unusual perch.

Then, this morning (Sunday) we noticed that the love doves were back and the male was nervously constructing another flimsy nest atop our balcony ledge. As before, a mess of twigs and other scraps lay ominously on the floor below. Knowing the end result would be once again depressing, my girlfriend quickly constructed her make-shift nest and then shooed the birds away before the female laid her ill-fated egg. Once the ledge was vacated, Misha quickly inserted her brightly green Easter nest onto the ledge.

Amazingly, the love doves quickly returned and graciously accepted the alien abode and safely laid their second egg!

Regarding your story about Noble Maluf:

I first met Noble Maluf in 1988. I was a photographer for the School of Medicine at CWRU. He would bring in kidneys from giraffe's, elephant's, taper's and so on. We would produce photographs for him on a weekly basis through the 90's. Everything you have said about him is true. Did you know he was never married but has a daughter? In fact she was married to the deceased Peter Jennings of ABC news fame. Anyway if you would like to know anything about this old bird ask away. I can be reached at thomas@case.edu.-Mike T. P.S Is he still alive in 2009?
