Beware: Big brother is watching you.

Webcams are everywhere. For example, here in Gloucester out on Cape Ann there are more than 20 webcams up and running, most of them 24 hours a day. Even the little village of Annisquam has one focused on the wooden footbridge crossing over Lobster Cove. (Ironically, this is one village icon I elected to omit from my mystery novel.) To check out the scene, got to and scroll down to Annisquam Village Realty. Should I be reassured or unsettled to realize someone might be watching me walk my dog night and day?

Eleven and counting...

Eleven feet have surfaced on shores around Vancouver in the past four years. None of them bare, the feet included two pairs that turned up separately and three with identifiable owners. No one has been able to explain a single appearance so far.
