Speaking of snakes.

They found a snake in Ireland!

THE YEAR THAT BLOG FORGOT IS: 1925.

CORRECTION: That was snake, not snakes.

The relative population of Irish snakes and mongooses is described by the Lotka-Volterra equations.

Gerty just took off her hat for a moment to settle her hair and a prettier, a daintier head of nutbrown tresses was never seen on a girl's shoulders--a radiant little vision, in sooth, almost maddening in its sweetness. You would have to travel many a long mile before you found a head of hair the like of that. She could almost see the swift answering flash of admiration in his eyes that set her tingling in every nerve. She put on her hat so that she could see from underneath the brim and swung her buckled shoe faster for her breath caught as she caught the expression in his eyes. He was eyeing her as a snake eyes its prey. Her woman's instinct told her that she had raised the devil in him and at the thought a burning scarlet swept from throat to brow till the lovely colour of her face became a glorious rose.

Thank goodness Professor Jones -- they named the dog Indiana -- didn't go and find them in Ireland, 'cause he hates snakes!

Eamon De Valera was a snake if ever there was one and he lived there for a long time.
