Strigidae Bubo: the CAL

Welcome Back

Here we are again, seven sections in.  I'm finding my Saturday morning routine double checking the section page for the week a calming addition.  I drink my coffee and play on the computer picking and re-picking pictures, checking the lay out, and linking pages.  Sometimes I publish early and sometimes I wait until Sunday to publish.  There is no rhyme or reason to my method, but some of you may have checked on a Saturday afternoon and found an early surprise.


This week we are continuing the process of squaring and straightening the lines.  You will start to see the overlaying trc shells forming a second set of corners in the design.  I enjoy the double square look, and I hope you do too.


Bubo grows by six rounds this week.
