Scientists Say Plants Can Actually Talk: Botanists say plants can really talk and have the recordings to prove it. In fact, visitors to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden can actually listen to recordings of the songs corn plants sing. Yea, well then, anyone who comes over to my place, better make up their minds pretty damn fast -…Continue

We are making progress.
We were made aware that we were running on an old version of php. Updating to the current version has solved a number of problems...and given us a major speed increase.
We have decided to do away with the minimum word requirement for two reasons: it didn't really make sense when we thought it out again because of the numbers of valuable posts that would never make the mimumum word count....and because the plugin we were using to impose that…
Deer Island. Masters of the dark side gather to gloat. Imagine that. I went to night school, mostly, before and after my free tuition deal ended the first week of my sixth semester in early 1978. I rang the bell, and walked off not fully knowing then that I had been knocked off. It was my thing, this thing of theirs, and there was no my way, I just did not know.
Who did? What I did know I could not articulate. My psyche was being crafted into a design my…Continue

Scientists Closing In On Hidden Scottish Meteorite Crater: Scientists say they’re close to finding a large impact crater, believed to have formed when a huge meteorite struck just off the coast of Scotland approximately 1.2 billion years ago. All I can say is, it’s a damn good thing it didn’t hit Scotland in modern times, because a helluva lot of people might have…Continue

Whatever language you speak, it’s been good to know you.
I am on Facebook as me. I don’t do Twitter or Instagram.
In other Universes I am Rod Nero.
Don’t play any bad notes.
If you have another favorite blogsite comparable to this I would like to visit.
So long, it's been good to know you.
P.S. I wish we…Continue
Navigational aids are not directional cue cards. Received signals let the lost know where they are, not where to go next. Waiting and seeing is what we were taught to do when lost.
We knew how to stay put. Waiting and seeing is not as easy as it seems, or exactly the same as staying put. Some just run crazy into the woods and some just give up. I never got lost at sea. I was out…Continue

Jim and his work deserve fabulous ideas such as yours.

Vatican Declares People Don’t Get to Choose Their Genders: The Vatican department charged with overseeing Catholic education just released an extensive document, decrying what it calls a "crisis" on whether gender can be an individual choice rather than being set by God or…Continue
A few days ago, I posted here about what to do about those (all too many) OSers who have passed and whose work may now disappear forever from the internet, with the shutting down of Our.
I got some wonderful comments on that post, both kind messages addressed to me, and profound thoughts regarding what to do about our OS dead.
Ultimately, here is what I've decided, personally:
Since I was closest to these two dearly departed, I'm going to do sites for…Continue
I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Spencer Bohren through another musician friend. She tours the US and Europe and knew him well. We spent an afternoon together shortly after the flooding of New Orleans.
He was an historian and story teller. His "roots" knowledge was extensive and well expressed in his performances.…Continue
....There are those among us who are happy and proud to be characterized and identified as racists.
Do you believe that the society can do without these card carrying bigots, or, do you believe the idea that "It takes all kinds..." maintains some sort of perpetual validity?…Continue
