    Happy birthday, Andy. Hope you're having a good one. I like the way you've built up suspense to a fever pitch here about why the cormorants don't eat the fish.

    I never knew the limestone cliffs weren't right in and around Guilin. (You learn something new every day on VT). And I saw the cormorant fishing on TV. Must be a neat experience seeing that in person.
