This blog began as a description of our life in Al Ain, UAE (United Arab Emirates). Brn worked at the UAE University Libraries Deanship for three years and Bss homeschooled our four children, D, B, P, and O. After returning to the the USA for five years, we are living in Abu Dhabi now.
Some of the maintenance and cleaning staff at the library where I work have set up a garden in the back. Here you can see that they have set up a scarecrow out of one of their coveralls to discourage birds.
