We were visited by these happy little fellas outside our van this morning. Just to remind us that despite the bitterly cold weather these past few days, it is in fact spring in New Zealand.
Paddocks abundantly speckled with newly minted lambs and bucking calves as well as pedestrian line ups of ducklings have been a common roadside sight as we travel the backroads and we hope the cold-snap hasn’t resulted in too many fatalities.
Anyways, these guys were all looking no worse for wear and super keen on exploring all the amazing things manifesting like blades of grass, and pebbles and big clumsy featherless creatures with iPhones.
On a totally different note our cute visitors are also a good reminder for me to encourage y’all to dump Google as your go-to search engine and swap over to DuckDuckGo (https://duckduckgo.com).
As Wikipedia notes:
DuckDuckGo (DDG) is an internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers’ privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. DuckDuckGo distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by showing all users the same search results for a given search term. It emphasizes returning the best results, rather than the most results, generating those results from over 400 individual sources, including crowdsourced sites such as Wikipedia, and other search engines like Bing, Yahoo!, and Yandex.
I recommend setting DuckDuckGo as your default search engine ASAP.
