Hello FrogWatchers and Frog Enthusiasts
Mood:  happy
Topic: Welcome

Hello ALL,

Sorry I haven't posted for a while. It is hard to say if it was more computer problems, or migraine complications, but my wife just installed a new hard drive and things are looking up on the computer end! As many of may or may not know, I have had a status migraine for over four years now. It never goes away, but fluctuates in severity so sometimes I am able to function nearly normal. I had a new twist to add this Thanksgiving season, I had a second migraine on the left side on top of the one on the right side that has been there forever (it seems). Luckily it only lasted a day, but WOW, did it put me down. I have been worse this last year and sadly didn't get to monitor very many times. I am excited about 2008 though, especially with the AZA naming it the Year of the Frog. I plan to post much more regularly and keep everyone posted on the world of amphibians. I wish everyone a HOPPY Holiday season and a wonderful Year of the Frog!

And now I'm back...from outer space...Well, not really outer space
Mood:  happy
Topic: Welcome
I apologize for the long break, I have had many crazy things going on and since this is a hobby, it had to get pushed back. Hopefully I will be able to have some regularity to my posts once again. I will be sifting through many email news updates and try to post what I think you will be interested in, but some may be dated a month or so, so bear with me. I also was reaching full capacity on my allowed space and deleted many pictures from previous posts. These are all still saved and if you find one that you want to see, email me and I'll send it to you. If you find any links to be nonactive or if you have suggestions that you would like to see added, please let me know. I appreciate your patience, I see many have been checking in during my absence. Friday I found my first ever November toad. I was planting bulbs and dug up the sleeping Little fellow. No harm other than loss of a few Z's. I have a lot to share from how the Symposium went (it was awesome) to a new National Coordinator for Frogwatch USA. New videos from Ravenwoods media, (look under Frog Calls in the Midwest along the left) Tree Walkers International (TWI) is now up and running (also along left). I have tried to add many links I think will be of interest, check them out. You can also check out my MySpace Page, how did you guess it was dedicated to Frog Conservation? While the amphibians are sleeping here, I'll try to keep you up to date on happenings around the world. Thanks for reading Wendell's Frog Blog.

I'm Back...Finally!
Mood:  happy
Topic: Welcome
Hello everyone! Thanks for being so patient. I still am working on making an archive, but I have enough of the old posts saved and deleted to start back up again. I have redone the links panel, if you have a related link or know of one you would like to see included, let me know. I am very behind on my emails, so there will probably be many posts before I get caught up. I will post the answers for the quiz, so if you didn't get a chance to take it, write your answers down before you open the comments to check them. I heard that Indiana has the most registered sites for terrorists threats, I don't think my Blog is on there, but I guess it is as much at risk as some of the sites mentioned in the article, but if this Blog suddenly disappears...Just kidding. I still plan on some minor changes that I'm working on, but I think its time to get this thing rolling again.

Still Under Construction
Mood:  irritated
Topic: Welcome
I'm still wrestling with getting things worked out. I'm a much better amphibian monitor than a website manager. If you get a chance, the article about Frogwatch USA with a picture of a very attractive bull frog and a fat guy holding it (ME) is in this weekends USA Weekend magazine. A link for the article can be found at USA Weekend magazine. For the next couple of weeks with the holiday and kid's camps, things will continue to be crazy. Hopefully after that I can address the space issues and get everything going again with a new look.
Thanks for visiting, and keep checking back.

Temporarily under construction
Mood:  d'oh
Topic: Welcome
Wendell's Frog Blog will be on a short vacation. I just realized that I am right at full on my available disk space. I am working on creating an archive so I can put old posts there and free up space here for new posts. I apologize for this inconvenience and will get things going as quick as I can. I am not going to post the answers to the quiz yet so more have a chance to try it while the site is inactive. If you can't wait for the answers, feel free to email me at There is still enough space for comments, but I need to take off posts with photos. Thank you for visiting and keep checking back, I should have new posts soon!
