    Having walked past that very spot a hundred times, I am rather embarrassed to admit I had no idea the consulate was right there. :alienblush:

    Agreed about the flags, BTW. They should all be at half mast. Because it's the right thing to do.

    For the US flag, they may be prevented from lowering it because Japan hasn't lowered theirs. Since this is on US soil, no other flag can be above the US flag, and Japan's rules for lowering theirs seem to be a bit more restrictive than ours. Just a guess.

    I don't quite understand the flag etiquette, but if what they are doing is insulting, they should just lower them! What's the big deal? Why wouldn't they lower them?

    Well as a Canadian I am not insulted. It has always been my understanding that there must be exceptional circumstances for flag to be at half-mast, and while it is a great tragedy in Canada I think the sympathies of other countries is enough in this case. Just my two cents.

    On a lighter note, my wife took these pictures this evening. I approve.

    We went to the Boo at the Zoo, trick or treating at the Rosamond Gifford Zoo here in Syracuse. Any excuse for Ian to see the elephants, we love this place.

    D'aww! So adorable!


    I got this science book from the thrift store today, and it only cost $1! I love it so much! Sweet, sweet science! :adore:

    The book is from 2009, so it's not really out of date either. I'm going to love it, and I know my niece will love it. She loves science, particularly bio-sciences. I tried to get her into astronomy, but she prefers biology. Still, I'm not going to quibble!

    A few pictures of the book:
