    I guess that RobDog should be in orbit by now, if the launch wasn't delayed.

    Hunh. Here I was, just guessing, and I wasn't so far off. I was actually thinking it might be a new car, but I thought that would be too minor.

    However, when you are posting in Chit-Chat on your honeymoon....you're doing it wrong.

    Yea kinda. We went to a small beach town just outside of San Diego. It was cool, not hot lol. We just needed a few days to decompress after all the planning and stuff. Going to Maui in a couple weeks.

    Some bombarse breakfast place, mexican food place (drinks were weak AF) and an italian place all within walking distance. We were about 200 feet from the beach. Oh and we found a great donut place on our last morning. I'll see what I can post pics of

    Re: Post Race!

    That's the one of the funniest story I have ever heard of about that planet. The other has a story behind it:

    When I was in HS, we had an English teacher who was so pale blond as to be nearly albino. She also had a great sense of humor, and everybody knew it. So, there was one class when a student from a different, simultaneous, English class came over with a note from the other teacher. She took the note, read it, and turned bright red right to the roots of her hair. Naturally, we all demanded to know what the note said, but it turned out to just be a headline we knew she had posted over her desk in the teacher's lounge: Are there rings of debris around Uranus?

    Better not smoke the broad leaf in that picture. That's milkweed, which is fairly toxic. A critical food source for the Monarch butterfly caterpillar, which sequesters the toxin from the milkweed sap, which makes the caterpillar toxic, as well. It's also brightly colored, which is a general sign. If it's on an animal, it means don't eat me, I'm toxic. If it's red, and octagonal, it means stop, it's the law.

    Upon a second viewing, I'm not so sure that's actually milkweed. The leaves look right, but the fact that it is growing so straight and tall isn't right, and the stem doesn't look quite right. Still, this is chit-chat, so whatever.

    The other plant looks a bit like chickory. It almost certainly isn't, but just to be safe, I think you should roast it and brew it like coffee. It may kill you, or it may not, but it would be an experiment. After all, chickory (if I spelled it right) was sometimes used as a coffee substitute by people who were utterly desperate.

    Why don't you just burn it rather than have them hog up the trash bins?

    A fire? Haaa!

    He lives in California where you can't blow a fart without doing a lengthy and expensive environmental impact study months in advance, then submit the results to the state EPA (in triplicate) for a thorough review by hundreds of faceless bureaucrats and if the request is approved pay for all the necessary licenses, permits and waivers. Only then do you get the state's blessing to emit noxious gasses.

    Fire in the west is a pretty touchy subject. Most of the year it's simply out of the question. I came home the other day and found my neighbor burning a pile of brush. That was a bit of a surprise. It hadn't occurred to me that you could do that in town due to the almost ever present fire risk. This is the time of year when it would be possible, though. In a month or so, the risk becomes too great.

    Exactly what the risk would be depends on what bothers you the most. At the office, one day, we were able to watch a fire spread across the foothills. It burned a good amount, though was fortunately contained before it got to any houses. Afterwards, the story emerged that it was started by a mountain biker burning his toilet paper. That became the source of many a joke for the next year.

    Sometimes, though, it's not so funny. A short in a transformer dropped some molten something at the base of a power pole. The subsequent fire swept up a hill and consumed half a dozen houses so fast that it killed a woman who was taking a nap in the afternoon.

    When I was hiking through New England a few years back, I saw one of those Smokey the Bear signs showing a high fire danger. Their high would have been our None, as the forests were sodden at the time. When we get to high, you can start a fire with crazy ease. For example, an archer missed his target one day, and the errant arrow struck a rock. That was all it took. The fire was a yard across and spreading by the time he got there, and he was barely able to extinguish it.
