    Re: Post Race!

    In France, for Asian yellow jacket, I have seen (we had one nest at work) a professional use a kind of powder he sprayed at the entrance of the nest so every beast going out is touched by the powder and die in a few minutes.After they use the same powder with water to destroy the nest, the powder stay active for a while so the beast that are outside and come back after the destruction are contaminated also and will die. As you said , they are in full protection suit.

    Perhaps it was for the video, but they guy didn't just plant the hose over the entrance to the nest, but put it right beside the entrance, and occasionally beat on the ground to keep them coming out until all the flying ones were gone. He then removed the nest, showing the non-flying cohort that had other jobs in the nest.

    However, I should also note that he had the full bee suit.

    I don't want to use any gasoline or harsh chemicals that might hurt the cherry tree. We're supposed to get 1-2 inches of heavy rain tomorrow so I might use the garden hose to try and drown the nest. A friend suggested putting screen wire over the entrance to prevent them from escaping and maybe I'll add some dish soap as well.

    Oh man, I just saw one of those at the last local gun show I went to. Not 3 barrels, but it was still cool looking.

    We always get a professional to come and take care of the nest. They usually put in a harmless mold that is not so harmless to the nasty stinging bugs! In our area it's usually around $100 for that visit.

    I have some mold that I can give you. It's not particularly harmless though.

    Re: Post Race!

    I've eaten some lichen. I wasn't lichen it too much, though. You can eat the lichen called 'rock tripe'. It has an earthy taste, and isn't very filling, nor would it make much of a garnish on things. Frankly, it has mushroom for improvement from a culinary aspect.

    Also, don't eat too much of it, or you're going to regret it. My understanding is that it produces a powerful acid (perhaps hydrofluoric acid), which you can tolerate in small quantities, but it will give you the runs if you eat too much.

    Our baseball team just played their last home game as The Cleveland Indians.
    If I owned the team and MLB was pressuring me to drop the name after 106 years I would have changed to to the "Cleveland Steamers" with a stylized steam train logo that vaguely resembles a turd.
    Google it if you don't get the joke.

    They got rid of him prior to the 2019 season as a condition to host the all-star game that year.

    The giant Chief Wahoo sign that stood over gate D at old Municipal Stadium is now at the Western Reserve Historical Society.

    Re: Post Race!

    Thatís sad, it doesnít affect me much because the only Cleveland I like is the Browns, but Iím still bitter about the Jazz going to Utah, the we had the Hornets, then the NBA did some weird expansion team thing so that Charlotte can keep their history, and now weíre the Pelicans.

    I wasnít even born when we lost the Jazz name, but I feel like itís uniquely New Orleans. I couldnít imagine being and Indians or Redskins fan and having that yanked away.

    I remember when the Jazz moved to Utah. It made absolutely no sense to keep the name "Jazz" because it's so ingrained into New Orleans' culture yet it's the absolute last thing that could possibly be associated with Utah and Salt Lake City.

    Yeah, they should have changed the name to Utah weak beers.

    I guess that wouldn't have been so catchy.

    Chief Wahoo should have been retired. That name belongs to the fish, and there it should stay. They're impressive fish.

    Cleveland Steamers would be a great name. You wouldn't even have to do much with the logo. There wouldn't be a real need to try to suggest what you are talking about, because you'd have the browns and the steamers in the same city.

    Every generation, 10 year old boys would think they'd found something new. It would be an introduction to humor for each subsequent generation.

    Yep. I have no idea what's causing it to flood, it hasn't flooded in this neighborhood since my neighbor built in the 1950s.

    My only guess is that the debris is clogging up the drainage. Lake Charles saw that after Laura last year.

    Is this just regular rain that is causing flooding, or is it the remnants of another storm?

    We finally got a bit of rain on Tuesday. It didn't flood anything.

    Tropical Storm Nicholas did hit last week or the week before which brought in a lot of rain, but it has just been raining every single day.

    I've had some baby spider running around on my computer screen this morning. It may not be a baby spider, actually, as it is far too small and fast for me to be able to count it's legs, but I'm saying it's a baby spider. It also tends to stay over around the bezel, and once into the black, I can't see it at all.

    Kind of puts me in mind of any DDay post.
