So I stopped by the office after my customer non-event of the afternoon, bounced up the front walk and stopped dead in my tracks. What?? Swans?? We can't even keep green plants in the offices anymore and they bought a pair of swans to live in the pool along the front of the building?? Wait - they are plastic swans. Turns out they are there to dissuade the ducks from nesting in the pond, as the ducklings get caught in the water circulatory system. Sorry mallards, not a good year for romance on the corporate turf.
