Re: “Surel's Place

Surel's Place was a part in my decision to move to this neighborhood. There are always such interesting conversations and exposure to artists of all genres from all over the country. It does so much to enrich my life and my neighborhood.

Re: “Thunder Mountain Line Scenic Train Rides

Their website shows only information from last year. And the reservations page shows no scheduled trips. Not operating now?

Re: “Cracker Barrel

My wife and her children enjoy Cracker Barrel very much. I find it the epitome of bland, bland, bland. The breakfast sausage has almost no flavor, the gravy on biscuits is just over thick paste with no sausage or real flavor. I guess there is a lot of volume for the money charged, just no soul.

Fun for the whole family. It's great to have places like this that let kids be kids and explore the world around them.

Re: “World Center for Birds of Prey

Yes, it is a nice facility. Yes, they charge way too much for school field trips.

I think it might be time to examine the salaries of this "non-profit" group.

It smells like a few upper ups getting a bunch of $$$$$$.

Re: “Cracker Barrel

great down home food at reasonable prices with a wonderful decor & fireplace & a gift shop that is to die for for anything nostalgic that you remember from your childhood--be it candy or food or toys or tv show dvds or knick knacks or whatever--you could spend a couple of hours in the gift shop alone! fun to hit this before or after a movie at edwards theater on cole/overland.

Re: “Anne Frank Human Rights Memorial

Simply stunning - moving, educational, pleasant, quiet and a fine place to reflect - the three women who conceived the idea and saw it through are truly admirable people. If you go to Boise and miss this you can't say you've been to Boise

Re: “World Center for Birds of Prey

yes sir.. one more news I share with you...

As the world marked the International Vulture Awareness Day on Saturday, the news of the mythological Jatayu is gloomy in Gujarat. For the third consecutive year, the vulture population in the state has dipped substantially.

The latest census concluded by the forest department last month reveals a drop of close to 28% in the numbers of the endangered species.

Though the department is yet to officially announce the results, sources said that the final estimated population in the state is just above 1,000 birds right now.

The good news, if any, is that the rate of decrease has been marginally checked since the last census in 2007, which witnessed a fall of 45% in the birds' population over the 2005 estimate. Vultures, protected under Schedule-I of the Wildlife Conservation Act, are among the most critically endangered species in the country. Conservationists anticipate that if the decline in their population continues at the current rate, the species will become extinct in India in the next seven years.

"Vulture conservation is a priority for us. Though the final figures are being compiled and there is an overall dip, we draw heart from the fact that the rate of decline is lower than last time," director of GEER Foundation Bharat Pathak said.
Sources indicate that news is not bad across all districts in the state.

"Some districts have, in fact, registered an increase in the population. Researchers at GEER involved in the study have gone into the depth of the issue this time to study the reasons for the rise or fall in population for each district," he said.

An active vulture conservationist with Birds Conservation Society of Gujarat, Kartik Shastri said that though the census exercise is a commendable attempt to figure out their total population, the forest department now needs to seriously look at conservation activities.

"Just discussing the rise or fall in population is not enough. Since the census concluded last month, we have reported seven vulture deaths in Ahmedabad. The point is who will undertake conservation?" he asked.

A medicine called diclofenac, which is used to treat livestock and is consumed by vultures while feeding on animals' carcasses, is believed to be the main cause of vulture deaths and therefore the decline in its population.

Re: “World Center for Birds of Prey

I am surprised I am the first reviewer of WCBOP. The birds are magnificent, and there is an opportunity---every hour or so---to get (relatively) up-close to one of the birds.

Which bird is shown is the volunteer's choice. SOME of the birds do tolerate flash photography, but most do not!

There are educational exhibits and movies. These discuss the birds, of course; electric-pole design to minimize bird deaths; and other topics.

There are outdoor cages with birds, and a nice picnic area. It is on a hilltop, so there is a good view, and clean air!
And, there is a gift shop! What more could you want?
A library, you say? There is one, but it was closed when I was there.

Call ahead, or check their web site, because the hours are weird. Check a map, too, 'cause the location is just a teensy way out-of-town---from the highway, anyway.
