Kung fu meercats!
A southern three-banded armadillo named Rollie adorably rolls around on the floor with his favorite pink toy. Rollie is an animal ambassador at the NEW Zoo Adventure Park in Green Bay, Wisconsin, who educates the public about his species, which is considered by the IUCN as being very close to becoming endangered.

On 6/30, we had a tremendous thunderstorm. I’d just raced down to the solar shed to disconnect the electrical system. That’s why I’m out of breath in the beginning of the video. I was soaked to the skin and dripping wet. But we sure as heck don’t want to lose our inverter. A neighbor lost their internet. The storm lasted for a good 20-30 minutes. We got more than a half inch in that short time.
For a short window of time every year, a wild strawberry patch near our house produces fruit. Since I could only pick a small number at a time, I brought them home and saved them in the freezer with some sugar. When the patch was finished producing, I took my spoils and made preserves. Here’s the collected strawberries macerating in sugar:
And the final product. I think my friends Tim & Alex might have to get the small jar.
