I found this praying mantis out side of my house the other day. I had never actually seen one before. It was really an amazing creature. It did not seem to mind me getting in close to take its picture. I did not expect it to really do much but I thought maybe I could learn some mantis style martial arts from it. ;)

Christmas season is on at the mall.

While I was at the mall this afternoon, I noticed that summer was truly over and the autumn season had begun. Everything has turned over from bathing suits and sandals to Halloween costumes and pumpkins. Even though Halloween is still over a month away, some of the stores have already started stocking the shelves with Christmas items. For instance, in the Hallmark store I found some great new ornaments including a Ghostbusters car, Mickey Mouse from Mickey's Christmas Carol, and and animated flip book like ornament that I found particularly interesting. You have to turn the crank to flip the plastic pages and watch Mickey do a magic trick.
All in all it was a really good day. I like this time of year when everything is just starting to get into the holiday season.
