Eww, what's that smell? It's kind of sad, really, a poor little creature, velella, also known as "by-the-wind sailor" that spends its life cruising the wavetops, is unceremoniously stranded all along the west coast beaches, due to a shift in the spring winds. It happens in my town, Dillon Beach, every couple of years but they're really thick this year.
Hey, didja ever want to have an ant farm when you were a kid? Think you want to get one for your own kids? You know, teach them a little bit about what the real world's like?
