It's just as picturesque as I remembered, but it had changed a bit -a few less trees, the beaver dam is gone and I didn't see any turtles this time. Still a log of red-winged blackbirds though.

One of our other two cats is very curious (but probably just looking for soft kitten food) and the other cat just hisses as it walks by the room with the kittens.
If you would like to foster kittens - and it's pretty easy - just contact Homeward Pets in Woodinville.

The Real Time Web is coming so fast we've hardly had any time to think about it yet. So let's do that, shall we? The two hottest technologies online, Twitter and Facebook, are fast integrating real-time delivery of activity streams to their users. Paul Buchheit, the man who built the first versions of both Gmail and Adsense, says the real time web is going to be the next big thing. Buchheit's FriendFeed is a key point of innovation in real time. Social media ping server Gnip promised to turn everything online into Instant Messaging-style XMPP feeds, and though that's been put on hold in favor of more immediately clear value - we've still got our fingers crossed.

We had another great weekend at Camp Orkila on Orcas Island. The weather
couldn't have been better and the sunsets were beautiful as always. The best
part was being able to go out on the water in kayaks - something we've
wanted to do for years. We'll be back next year but that will likely be our
last year with the Y-Westerners program.

There were seals sunning on rocks at Doughty Point but no other wildlife.
We were soaked by a freak tsunami caused by a quake that measured 2 on the (Ron) Richter scale).
