Refining your Christmas plant search

By the way, if your nine-year-old son asks you what the difference is between holly and mistletoe, and you are looking up images of these plants on Bing to show him (and you don't have the filter set to Strict), make sure you type in "holly berries and leaves", not just "holly".

It avoids a lot of questions.

This is why I call the kids in to look at an image after I've found it, rather than letting them sit in on the search.

And really, "holly berries" probably would have returned something just as bad.

And now I'm off to repeat the search...(Kids are in bed.)

I know what you mean. Buddy Holly's glasses ARE kind of hard to explain.
