Here’s a dragon joke, courtesy of my dad. It’s an oldie-but-goodie, as they say.

Q: Where does dragon milk come from?

A: From cows with very short legs!

As I was flying home from a Thanksgiving visit, I looked up at the ceiling of the airplane and was struck by the shapes I saw.

Doesn’t that straight line look like a backbone? And don’t those curves off the side look like ribs? 

I thought to myself, I am flying inside a dragon! Doesn’t it look like that?

No?

Guess it’s just me, then.

IMG_20181001_112457395_HDRHere’s another “dragon of Hallowe’en” photo for your collection. It was an animated dragon, with wing action and roaring sound effects.

This house is right by the school where I work. The home owners set up a “Harry Potter House” that was open on Hallowe’en. It was an elaborate production, with several tents and cardboard towers, but this photo shows the dragon best.

I didn’t actually get to go, since the school isn’t close to where I live, but it was fun to see this dragon presiding over a fantastic seasonal community.

IMG_20181029_103641042_HDRThis dragon was created as part of a first grade math assignment. The students were supposed to make something using standard shapes: triangle, rhombus, hexagon, etc. This particular student, L. G., made a dragon.

Don’t you love the detail he put in? Those scales, the pupil of the eye, the tongue and teeth, though they’re harder to see. He did an amazing job!

Computer security is ever more important as years go by and the Internet becomes an integral part of our lives. Experts are constantly trying to persuade people to protect ourselves from various forms of crime by using stronger passwords. As part of this effort, a security firm called SplashData has been releasing an annual list of the most common passwords. Last April, Wired.com published an article revealing that the word “dragon” has made the most-common-password list every year for at least two decades.

Of course, those of us reading this blog already know that dragons are amazing and memorable creatures. Still, it seems an odd choice for a password. Whimsical, even. In her article,Wired reporter Louise Matsakis delves into the reasons for choosing this particular word. She also makes sure to mention that the reason we know “dragon” is a popular password is that many accounts using it were hacked.

So if you’ve used “dragon” as your password anywhere, you might want to update that. The hackers are on to you!

Here is a joke from the web site “From Russia With Love.” It features Zmey Gorynych with a different bogatyr, Ilya Murometz. The English is somewhat rough there, so I’ve cleaned it up a bit.


One time the famous Russian bogatyr, Ilya Murometz, was enjoying a day at home. A group of elders from the village nearby came to see him and said, “Ilya, help us! Zmey Gorynych is so angry that he burned 3 villages and ate all the hens. We are in trouble!”

But Ilya did not answer them. They went away discouraged.

A few days later, the village elders returned. “Please help us, Ilya! Zmey Gorynych has destroyed 10 villages, eaten all the cows, and kidnapped our wives. You must take action!”

Again there was no reply. They went away desolate.

After a few more days, the elders came calling again. “Ilya, it’s a nightmare! He’s destroyed 20 villages, eaten every domestic animal, and snatched the princesses. He’s very close to us now. Please, won’t you do something?”

At this, Ilya got up and got dressed. The elders were relieved and grateful. “Thank you for helping us at last!”

But Ilya said, “Oh, fellows. It’s time to escape now.”
