Hello Adriene and all. I have been undergoing an existential endemic of immense proportions which has caused me to act rash and not be available as much as I'd like to be, as I imagine many of us are. I do not take this show, all of you, and WFMU for granted. Much love.

Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:26pm coelacanth∅:

ultra d there's another plant (which i've had many of, as it's incredibly easy and propegates generously) called "4 o'clock" that flowers either at night or more likely early morning or on dark days.
by the picture i like the one on that site better though

here in texas, the wildflowers are blooming

Never listened to this show before, normally tune out after Fabio, but this is absolutely excellent
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm Handy Haversack:

We got you, Mr. P.

I am taking a break today. Slept late. Worked not that hard. The cats had a late breakfast so aren't even harassing me yet. I'm on the couch with a book and the dog and glass of wine and The Blind Tourist. Feels OK.

Adriene, I'm reading about a Danish expedition to Arabia in the 1760s. One of the young scholars spends a month along at Persepolis, mapping, charting, and making the first copies of the cuneiform inscriptions there -- the ones that led to the recovery of the language. They were inscribed high on shiny marble walls and columns and he could copy them only when the sun was shining directly on them. He goes blind from the glare! And even when he can see again, his eyes stay super sensitive as he continues his travels.

An early blind tourist. Carsten Niebuhr would lovethe show.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm coelacanth∅:

the lily of the valley (Pieris japonica) and the forsythia are already about done blooming here
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:28pm ultradamno:

@Coel 4 O'Clocks are on the second page of that list (clocking in, appropriately, at number four)
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:29pm Mr. Pumpy:

Danke, Handy. I'm chopping garlic and trying not to be curt with pops. I want the rain to come...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:30pm listener 126464:

ultra i saw that but the description is a little different than the ones i know, and i've never seen them in that deep purple; but that doesn't mean much.

iris here not even close. they're only a few inches tall. the daffodils have been blooming for 3-4 weeks.
i noticed the forsythia stayed in full bloom for almost twice as long as usual this year.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:38pm DJ Guin:

Hola Handy & Ken...no habla Espanol. duh. moved in and exhausted.

Glad to hear you are settled, at least, DJG.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm Carmichael:

My Lily of the Valley are in full glorious bloom. I'll post a pic tomorrow as my avatar.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:41pm DJ Guin:

twas not easy, Handy. one man moving crew only sounds sexy. in reality, it sucks.
  6:41pm zenrebeldiva:

That Eydie Gormet song brought me back to my childhood. I used to watch Steve and Eydie when they would guest star on the Carol Burnett show. I knew her voice anywhere! THANK YOU!!!!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:46pm Handy Haversack:

Ugh, I believe it DJG -- I always help friends move because moving sucks.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Life was nice when we used to have bees to pollinate things.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:47pm DJ Guin:

my hope is live here until i move next door. a conveniently located cemetary.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48pm Handy Haversack:

Ha, nice. We have a rent-stabilized place with back-yard access. So hopefully don't move again until the REAL apocalypse.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:49pm DJ Guin:

@Ken -- i believed they determined the cause of sudden hive collapse. a pesticide, of course. is it still that bad?
  6:49pm Shane Braindrain:

Yes, remember bees?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm coelacanth∅:

it's the many pesticides and unfavourable conditions in general.
and as if the direct assault to the bees isn't enough, the shithead species like yellowjackets are resilient and adapt to all humans' crap, so they still flourish on, always willing to destroy the honeybees' colonies.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:56pm listener 126464:

Thank you Adriene and crew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm DJ Guin:

great show, Adriene and skeleton crew.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm coelacanth∅:

Thanks Adriene! take care everyone
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:57pm Handy Haversack:

Lovely show, Adriene. The crows are always with us. Thanks so much.
