In another example of a site interesting in its single-mindedness, here’s a compilation a gentleman in Canada has made of big things in his province. (That’s him next to the giant burrowing owls in front of the seniors’ home in Leader.)

In other news, here’s a word I learned that’s very fun to say: hortatory (HOAR-tah-tor-ee). It means “tending or aiming to exhort.” Someone could give a hortatory speech, for example.

Oh, words. Oh, huge fiberglass sculptures of burrowing owls.
