It happens to every hard partier--your lifestyle eventually
catches up to you. For Steve Earle, this third so-so effort from the
then-roue-ish troubadour was a pretty glaring rehab-ahead warning light. The
sloppiness was beginning to show: half the disc bogs down in throwaways, cheap
echoes of Guitar Town and Exit 0's country-rock acumen. The rest, fortunately,
is prime, focused Earle: the Vietnam-vet title track, the Wild West-themed
"Snake Oil," and the oft-covered classic "The Devil's Right Hand," in which the
composer achieves that perfect balance of city-slick pop and hillbilly twang.
Earle would hit that one-two combo again, but not until he shook that party
monkey a few albums later. --Tom Lanham
Northern Water Snake
This is a capture of a very large Northern
Water Snake i came across resting next to the Blackstone River Bike Path Canal
in Cumberland R.I. This was the largest snake i have ever seen in the wild and
it looked like it was very well fed. Info: The Northern water snake (Nerodia
sipedon) is a large, nonvenomous, well-known snake in the Colubridae family that
is native to North America. They are active during the day and at night. They
are most often seen basking on rocks, stumps, or brush. During the day, they
hunt among plants at the water's edge, looking for small fish, frogs, worms,
leeches, crayfish, salamanders, small birds and mammals. At night, they
concentrate on minnows and other small fish sleeping in shallow water. The Lake
Erie water snake subspecies, Nerodia sipedon insularum, was once endangered, but
now benefits from the introduction of the round goby, an invasive species, which
now comprises up to 90 per cent of its diet. The Northern water snake can grow
up to 135 cm (4.4 ft) long. They can be brown, gray, reddish, or brownish-black.
They have dark crossbands on their necks and dark stripes and blotches on the
rest of their bodies, often leading to misidentification as cottonmouths or
copperheads by novices. They darken as they age. Some will become almost
completely black. The belly of this snake also varies in color. It can be white,
yellow, or gray. Usually it also has reddish or black crescents. Northern water
snakes mate from April through June. They are ovoviviparous (live-bearers),
which means they do not lay eggs like most snakes. Instead, they carry them
inside their bodies and give birth to baby snakes, each one 19–23 cm (7.5–9.1
in) long. A female may have as many as thirty young at a time. Babies are born
between August and October. Mothers do not care for their young; as soon as they
are born, they are on their own. Northern water snakes have many predators,
including birds, raccoons, opossums, foxes, snapping turtles, and other snakes.
They defend themselves vigorously when they are threatened. If they are picked
up by an animal, or person, they will bite repeatedly, as well as release
excrement and musk. Their saliva contains a mild anticoagulant, which can cause
the bite to bleed more but poses little risk to humans. Northern water snakes
often share winter dens with copperheads and black rat snakes. Muskrat houses
and beaver lodges are good places to find water snakes, which like to hide among
the sticks and plant stems. They live near lakes, ponds, marshes, rivers, and
canals; just about anywhere there is freshwater.
