New Zealand may be a few steps ahead of the US in turning autos into rolling advertisements. There are more cars sitting in private drives that appear to be decorated specifically as advertisements. This one just goes a little beyond most.

I bought three plug converters for the computer and two battery chargers. The converters are great, and work perfectly except the room has only two outlets unless you plug your room key into this wall switch. Without it, only two outlets function and only one light.

We stopped for a cache at Gibbs Hill Cemetery and saw this tree on the grounds. There are actually two of them. The bottom looks like some sort of cypress while the top looks like a spruce. The trees have not been grafted they just morphed into some other shape with a totally different type of needle. Strange.

Most geocachers have fun, lots of it. We walked the trail on the Friday after Thanksgiving to find Do Wop Dee's Wizard of Oz series. The hides were based on themes from the movie. We had a blast and we delivered Dorothy to the Emerald City.

Hudson, Ohio has 21 parks for recreation. Oak Grove Park just happens to be a little different. It is home to the Hudson Jaycees. Their home just happens to be the Hudson Haunted House. This is one of the oldest haunted houses anywhere having just celebrated its 35th anniversary. When the haunting is done, the hearse has to go somewhere so it sits near the house in the park.

I'm not sure why a resident chose to build this lighthouse on Venango Creek. It is a really nice lighthouse, and I'm certain anyone lost on the river will find it handy. :-) We didn't know it was functional until we drove by after dark and saw its beacon swing around. I understand not all his neighbors are thrilled. :-0

These ducks are at an ice cream stand at the east end of Warren, PA. Its at the junction of rte 6 and 59 on the way to Kinzua Reservoir. These ducks are serious beggars. I don't think these people realized what awaited them when they sat down. There is a small stream behind the eating area and anyone grabbing a seat at one of the tables is soon surrounded by these ducks. They run as a group to the next victims.
The Geauga County sherrifs were using these at the Fair this weekend. They seemed to fit the task perfectly. I'm not too certain if he had just finished a donut, but he seemed to have mastered driving the Segway and eating. He doesn't look like a big donut guy.

This creature may have been quaint if it occupied a space of pride in front of Olean's McDonalds, but to put it on the town square very near a quiet, little gazebo and in sight of a veterans monument seemed to be really crass. I enjoyed the little squirrels all over town until I got a view of this one. I half expected the other squirrel on the town square to be wearing a Wal-mart smock and a smiley face name tag.

We saw this sign in Dublin, Ohio. They were getting ready for their annual Dublin Irish Festival. The park they hold the festival in is really pleasant and the festival appears to be huge. There is also a nice little micro here (won't hear that from us too often). Just one question comes to mind, Do they drink green water?

We were watching the sunset at a Mentor lakefront park when three youth arrived at the park. Two were there to cheer on the third with his skateboard. His mission was to start at the top of the hill and skateboard to the bottom without falling into Lake Erie. He was good (or lucky).

Ali and I found giant hogweed while biking today in Warren County PA. It is the second time I have seen it and the first time Ali has seen it. Stay away from this stuff. The oil from it can change (ruin) your life. It has been found many places, including northeast Ohio, the Niagara Falls area and now Warren County. These are all places we and our friends cache. Please be careful.
