Something a little personal, before any blog posts are posted, our cat Spinky edits and censors appropriate material. Behind her head is the canton of stars from the American Flag - the 50 starred version. Spinky likes to fetch, chase her tail, and will stare you down in the eyes without flinching. She also likes to sing before bed and loves lasers.
Why do we love pets? In a world full of deception and people who want to sell us stuff, it is nice to see a sentient being that can only be honest and want our love.

A great flag I found while looking for a flag of Michigan, very funny and cute. The green tattoos on the horses are the shape of the state.

Flags appear in several scenes, in an episode that explains genetic diversity the red banners of a Japanese Butterfly feudal clan are shown along a beach.
The US flag sublimely appears as an arm patch on a US astronaut working outside of his or her space vehicle.
This television series was epic on shaping the mind of many a American and non-American, causing them to enter into careers related to science.
The great synchronicity of this series is that it rode along the wake of galactic imagination as a torrent of excitement about space and the future was first stirred with Star Wars. Cosmos was a second delicious rational whammy for those interested in sci-fi and science. Both Star Wars and Cosmos had memorable themes that penetrated into the soul with a cosmic forte. The composition of John Williams was timeless and parallel to generations yet to come and those before, while the score of Vangelis was perpendicular giving away its position with scientific accuracy as a photographic anthem of the 1980s.
In the big picture Cosmos is a scientific poem that sung upon the graces of objective and rational thinking, with a hidden undertone to respect mother earth or Gaea.
Cosmos asked us not to take science and technology for granted, and to appreciate the magnificence of technology. It has put us on the threshold of a great social and mind expanding era unlike anything seen before. For much care and respect must be taken, for strange days are set before us unlike anything imagined before.

With special permission from the Univest Bicycle Coordinator and renowned cyclist, John Eustice, I was able to hang my flags in pairs on the potted plant street lamps that line the streets of Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Right in front of my old apartment on Ashland Street are the flags of Ghana and Ethiopia blowing in the background.
In the upper right hand corner is the so similar pair of Italy and Mexico. People often compare the flag of Ireland to Italy, and its well enough. But a more harmonious overlap exists between Mexico and Italy. The only major difference are the national coat of arms on Mexico's flag.
The winner of the face was from Italy - Mattia Gavazzi. I surrendered my Italian flag unto him as a congratulatory gift.

The Boo Boo Village flag was recently sent to me by a reader. The flag is a play on a child's choice word for a physical injury - boo boo. This flag belongs to a first aid group that helps people at social events.
This flag was made by Nurse Obi Wan. Since this group operates under a First Aid setting, the Republic star is replaced by a Red Cross. Boo Boo Bear has a copyright tag to keep Warner Bros a little happier. The bear is a symbol of strength, healing and family, which is what the medical teams strive for when serving festival communities. The motto is "So That Others May Party" which makes up the acronym S.T.O.M.P.

This blog post was co-written by me and Nurse Obi Wan. If you have any flag ideas please send it to me! I'll post it when I get the chance.
