    No.
    It would appear that Mr. Falcon got himself an owl and a can of Krylon spray paint and ..
    ......well, anything for a good photo op. 😳

    I MUST MOVE TO AZ. Well actually I am by years end. Can't wait. Tired of being wet everytime I walk outside. Tired of all the things in the water here that want to eat me.

    It would appear that in the late 1800's there actually was a Red Madagascar owl. It hasn't been found in a very long time.
    That picture is not it but it is cool.


    From Wikipedia

    It is a rare resident of Madagascar that was virtually unknown from its discovery in 1876 to its rediscovery by researchers from the World Wide Fund for Nature in 1993. It is currently listed as vulnerable because of habitat loss,

    @steveinaz. Have you ever been to Florida in the summer time?

    If not, and you want to see (what its like) why I hate it so much, please let me know. For a limited time, I can offer you a free 3 night stay at my place, 10 min from Cocoa Beach. I can pick you up at Orlando International Airport for free.

    You have to bring your own personal sweat towel though. 😓.

    Me ... as someone from the Mojave Desert, I can say that my experience in FL has been an effing nightmare. Come visit before committing.

    Oh and real estate has exploded as of late. We purchased in late 2014 and my property value has almost doubled. Property tax last year was $3,300 or so. Homeowners insurance was almost the same. So figure $500 min a month in escrow on top of P&I for a mortgage. God forbid if you have to have PMI.

    Oh.... and any hope of good Mexican food, Hahah throw that **** out the window like a pair of White Van Speakers.

    Yeah... FWIW, I couldn't do Florida, nor the "desert Southwest".
    Having grown up in Charm City (Baltimore), summer heat + humidity (the Tandoori oven effect) is not my idea of pleasant summer living.

    We lived in the Silicon Valley for a couple of years, and I I could do San Diego or its environs, if the population were decreased by... oh, I dunno... 75%.

    When we lived in CA, gasoline prices were just about the lowest in the country (less than a dollar per gallon for regular, ca. 1990). Not no more. :| There are a couple of things I miss about CA (the availability of so many different kinds of produce of such exceptional quality being the foremost), but it's been quite a while since I was last back to visit, and with each passing year I am less inclined to feel any pull to go back, even for a visit. :/

    I (we) like Northern New England -- a lot. I could go on and on as to why. In the context of recent posts here, though, I'll just say that, ca. 8 months out of the year, it's ain't because of the weather ;)

    Soon Steve. We save our warm weather trips for when it's a bit colder here. Congrats on the retirement, now you just have to find things to keep yourself busy.
