I guess dragons are alive and striving, as this ear shot will attest. I haven't seen any episodes, but many tell me that the HBO series Game of Thrones is hot these days. Author George R.R. Martin is too. Dragons here. Dragons there. They are crawling around everyplace, looking for homes or trouble, which ever comes first. Remember the busted myth that tiny, disgusting earwigs would crawl into people's ears and bore their way to the brain? Where do you think this guy is headed? And unlike the earwig, this critter breathes fire. Ouch! Hot! Hot! Hot!
