For additional reading, the following is a link to an interesting article that explains clearly why coyotes are thought to be the canid soup that they are, from Earth Sky: “Eastern Coyote is a Hybrid, But Coywolf is Not a Thing”

This map shows the movement of coyotes across North America and Mexico. It is now in Panama and will undoubtedly make its way south and across the canal. The animal is so adaptable I imagine it won’t be long before it colonizes Colombia as well.

I don't have time to be on time @trueey

A post shared by Betches Media (@betches) on

If they said what they really felt when they showed up late, what do you think they would say?
I’ll start.
“I had plenty of time to get here on time but I wanted to make sure everyone was here before me so I wouldn’t have to wait for anyone else”
Add what you think goes through the perpetually late person’s mind when they show up late with a Starbucks Coffee in their hand.

UUSR Martin Luther King Jr. weekend events 2016

All are welcome this weekend at the Unitarian-Universalist Society of Rockport! We will commemorate and affirm the work and life of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, beginning with this Sunday’s 10:30 a.m. worship service devoted to the theme of Racial Justice. The next day,  Monday 18 January, will be the 28th  annual MLK Day march and service.

The march will begin at 10 a.m., at the U.U. Society of Rockport, 4 Cleaves Street and follow a route through downtown of about 1 mile.  You are cordially invited to come at 9:30 to make signs (a favorite activity for the children.)  After the march there will be the chance to warm up with hot cider before joining Rev. Susan Moran in a short service of readings and music honoring Dr. King. Guest speaker,  Alexis A. Toliver,   the co-lead organizer for Black Lives Matter in Cambridge and a Research Assistant in the Department of Neurobiology, Harvard Medical School, will speak about the meaning and goals of the Black Lives Matter movement.


This march began 28 years ago when 8 year old Lily Ruchman, having learned a bit about Dr. King, asked her mother if there could be a march.  Her mother Anita, and her church community said Yes.  We and many others from the North Shore have marched each year since then for the ideals Dr. King lived and died for: economic and racial equality, peaceful means to peaceful ends, dignity and freedom for all people.
