Pie Time

Thursday, December 1, 2005

Mi amigo John Acorn, the Nature Nut/Nature Nacho sent us these greetings today from the soon-to-be-frozen North, namely Edmonton, Alberta.

My Friends:

It is pie time in Edmonton, when the ice looks like pies. Happy Pie Time to you.--John

And to you, too, Nacho.

If you are unfamiliar with John Acorn's work, your life is incomplete. He's an authority on beetles, has created and hosted two different wildly popular TV nature shows ("Twits & Pishers" and "Acorn The Nature Nut"), he's a master musician (and finger-picking prodigy), and he is on a lifelong mission to increase humanity's appreciation of insects (he calls himself a "bugster" because the bug-related equivalent of "birder" is a tad unsavory). He does the best Scottish accent this side of Mike Myers, and he ranks in my top 10 Funniest Humans of All Time.

Check out some of his insect and bird books. You will be richly rewarded.
