The National Wildlife Federation started National Wildlife Week back in 1938. This week try to reconnect with nature - learn about your local flora and fauna, take a hike or maybe even pick up litter at your local park. With the added daylight I'm planning some hikes this week after work. I'll see you out there!
In the movie The Edge Anthony Hopkins's character, Charles Morse, receives a knife as a birthday gift. This beautiful custom knife was handcrafted by well known Canadian knifemaker and bladesmith Brian Lyttle. Lyttle also had a role as an extra in the film.
The engraving "CM" stands for Charles Morse
Don't forget, if you are gifted a knife please remember to give the donor a coin. If you'd like to read more about this old tradition there's a great article titled A Penny For A Knifein the September 1999 issue of Blade Magazine.

Ah, yes. Thank you.
Give him a coin?
If someone gives you a knife, you should give them a coin in return or it cuts the friendship.
The elusive Puma concolor couguar (eastern cougar) has been on the endangered species list since 1973. Yesterday, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service concluded that the aptly named ghost cat is extinct. You can read the offical report here.
I also suggest reading The Eastern Cougar: Historic Accounts, Scientific Investigations, And New Evidence by Chris Bolgiano.
