I just saw a promo for "The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies" which will air Wednesday at 9/8central on Nova on PBS. Should be a good show to catch.

Thanks for posting that Linrose,,Since the Digital change-over and not buying the Sunday paper anymore I'm gambling that something good is on. I don't even know if TV guide comes in the paper anymore. You would think they would have the bandwith for an Electronic Program guide but with only 15 channels I can flip through them easily, Now on the plus side I get three PBS channels. One is mostly theater,opera, and British comedy [doc martin is good]...The second covers Nightly Business and World News along with the Nova series and the third covers travel, cooking shows, This old house and P. Allen Smith's gardening show.

This was the 2nd time that I watched the show. It's just a fascinating creature!

One person, when asked to describe what it would mean to loose the monarch migration, compared it to loosing the Mona Lisa or the music of Beethoven. After thinking about that for a moment, I don't think that's a good comparison. The loss of the monarchs would be a far greater loss.

The more important point though is that we don't have to loose any of them. We know how to do this, we just need the will to save the monarchs.
