Good Planets, a monthly carnival celebrating photographs of the natural beauty of our planet, is at Tortoise Trail this month. A feast for the eye and soul. One of my Mt.

As for the Ugly, you can take your pick. A Carnival of Hijacked Holidays throws a wet blanket the commercial holiday season with posts like Why We Skip The Holidays Altogether, and last week's Carnival of the Recipes included a recipe for - gulp - Roast Possum .
