A Travel Fever Weekly Link Round-Up

There's nothing like having an earthquake advisory appear during the weeks leading up to a vacation near the affected area. For the sake of the millions of people living there, I sincerely hope the San Andreas fault goes back to sleep peacefully. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could learn how to relieve the stress along fault lines and eradicate earthquakes forever?

London Bridge
This week I thought I'd share a photo of something that is very well-traveled-- in more than one meaning of the phrase. The structure you see to the left is the London Bridge which was dismantled, shipped here to the U.S., and reassembled at Lake Havasu City, Arizona. I think it rather enjoys the weather on this side of the pond.

While I wonder what to pack, I'll mosey on out to the corral. I've been saving some mighty fine links for you this week. Head 'em up! Mooooooooove 'em out!

►Book, Movies & Other Interesting Tidbits◄
►Channeling My Inner Indiana Jones◄

  • Whatever you do, don't send your robot lawnmower after a moose
  • Meet Pudding, the photogenic fox that's too friendly to be released into the wild. 
  • In a matter of seconds this bobcat lost her family. Now she's getting a new one, thanks to rescuers. 
  • Five wild lionesses have grown manes and started acting like males.
  • An amazing breakthrough has solved the mystery of Monarch butterfly migration.
  • Experts offer advice on living near coyotes. (I live in the center of one of the largest metropolitan areas in the U.S., and there have been coyotes spotted a couple of blocks away.) 
  • A bear in a Polish zoo found a World War II mortar grenade.

That's all for this week! Don't forget to stop by next Friday when I'll be sharing a freshly selected batch of links for your surfing pleasure.

Have a great weekend, and read something fabulous!


  1. I hope you have a safe trip and that you enjoy yourself, Cathy! As for me, I'm heading to that 200-year-old pub for a pint... Thanks for these great links, as ever.

    1. Do you have a designated driver? ;-)

  2. I like the London Bridge photo, and am amazed at its location in Arizona. Who knew?

    If I traveled to Arizona, I would surely want to visit it.

    Gosh, that bridge, the Desert Botanical Gardens and the Poisoned Pen are enough to get me there.


Thank you for taking the time to make a comment. I really appreciate it!
