Building a Camera Trap for wildlife photography.

I'm thinking about building a home made camera trap, to photograph the wildlife around my house. I've got a couple old cameras lying around, the newest being a Canon Powershot, and rather than spend a huge amount of money for a prebuilt camera trap, I'd like to convert one of these. Does anyone have any information on doing this? Am I better off just buying something pre-made, or can I construct something myself?

Who is that mysterious clam?

At a bar I like to go to in Baltimore (The Pickled Parrot in Canton) there is an old National Bohemia beer sign above the bar. It features the Natty Boh guy, of course, and then an anthropomorphic clam, a guy who looks like a quaker (maybe a pilgrim), a turtle, and a pelican in a sailor's hat. Who are these characters?

Can I Watch the Atlanta Falcons in Seattle?

I'll be on a trip to Seattle on Sunday, 11/7 -- the day that my hometown team the Atlanta Falcons will be squaring off against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Since I'm guessing that the Atlanta-Tampa Bay contest will not the be featured game on the local Seattle Fox affiliate, I'm wondering ... Is there any place in Seattle (I'm thinking sports bar, I guess?) where expatriate Falcons fans gather? Heck, I'd even be willing to go to place where expatriate Bucs fans gather. Or just a sports bar in general where they might show all the games on various monitors. Thanks!

What's an appropriate greeting for the Diwali festival?

Diwali is coming up and I'd like to politely mention this to my close Indian coworkers, similar to a 'Happy Christmas' or 'Happy New Years' they would be likely to say to me. What's the best way, would a simple 'Happy Diwali' be appropriate? If so, what's the correct day for this as it's a 5 day festival from my understanding? This year (2010) it looks like November 5th is the main date.
