Only in Woodstock

If you've never been here, you probably associate the town with the movie/concert. And, it has to be said, there are some people here that are still "hippies" - that's ok. It's not the whole town, however. Where I stay, the people are pretty salt-of-the-earth, blue collar types who voted for (and support) George Bush. That's ok, too.

In the past few weeks, a new neighbor has moved onto the street: a pileated woodpecker. But it seems to have imbued some of the hippie spirt - it wants to save the trees. So it pecks the tin sheds in people's backyards, starting at 5am with a jackhammer-type noise. Which is definitely not ok.
