    And yes, I heard myself.

    Next question?
    Did the Lemuriformes hear you?

    The large vertebrae that my puppy found has vanished. Perhaps another predator ran off with the bone, or perhaps aliens collected another specimen.

    Lemur v Bonobo

    Who has better hearing, a Lemur or a Bonobo? A Bonobo probably has more fun.

    I am asking for vibes to be sent my way - I leave Saturday for a mission trip to CO with 8 teenagers. Fortunately, there will be 4 adults in our group and I have no idea how many people we will be joining out there. Please send vibes for safe travels as we drive across Kansas and part of Colorado and for patience for all on the trip so we all come back with smiles on our faces and joy in our hearts.
    Just getting back on line, so I'm sending vibes your way for a safe and rewarding trip.

    Wink More fun with animal vocalizations

    Some of the tiny mouse lemurs emit high frequency vocalizations. It reminds me of the one thread last year where the poster gave a link to a sound that you can't hear if you're over 45.

    FWIW, I remember a talk from a giraffe specialist who reported on giraffe low frequency vocalizations. It looked like they were munching on leaves, but they were really vocalizing. Sort of like a ventriloquist!

    I'm sure you've "heard" about the cell phone ring tones that some kids are using. They're at a high frequency, so people over about 25 generally can't hear them, including teachers.

    Perhaps the giraffes can use these phones.

    Rescuing the LTE from the second page.

    What is the weather like in your neighborhood. Right now it's in the 70's in Durham. When left the house this morning I actually felt a little chilly.


    P.S. Moneypenny was in the window when I left. I miss my little girl.

    It's been Seattle summer since DevilDeac was out here -- 75 and sunny. Delightful!

    Thanks to the Weatherbug ad to the right, I feel like I always know what the weather's like in Durham...


    The bullydog frequently watches me drive away, from an upstairs (low-to-the-floor) window. Very adorable. I bet a warming cat is equally cute.

    In my neighborhood it's a pleasant 67 but the skies are nasty LA hazy.

    Nice day in Alabama, but we have an ozone alert which sucks. I will never, ever understand why we have ozone alerts on days that are perfectly nice, whereas when you get out of your car and smell burning rubber, ozone risk is "negligible."

    I hate the city with such a passion. Cannot *wait* to move out into the boondocks and have my horse farm!

    Hot and sunny in CT. Should reach 96 degrees this afternoon. Also have the ozone alert, but my sensors don't detect any ozone today.

    I think of 96 as hot. Do Atlantan's think 96 is hot?

    Yes. But we have A/C (paging throatybeard)!

    A/C is rare in Souther California. You also rarely need it but when you do, it's hell living without it. I finally bucked and bought a portable A/C a few years ago during a heat wave and week long Santa Ana winds. I was trying to fall asleep at night when it was 100 degrees INSIDE my apartment. I'll never forget the first night I slept with A/C running full blast in my bedroom. Ahhhh.

    Same here. When our furnace went out this spring, we decided to replace it and add a heatpump at the same time. Ahh, A/C is good for those rare times when we actually need it.

    So, on top of pythons in the washing machine, we now need to be aware of this?

    Maybe this is what happened to ugadevil's pots. A few months ago he mentioned it somewhere on the boards.

    Hey, where is ugadevil? Haven't heard from him in a while.

    Oh, that totally, totally sucks. And I bet your homeowners insurance wouldn't cover it either since it's probably an "act of God."

    "So, Bill, how did you lose everything you owned?" "Well, man, a flowerpot exploded on my front porch."

    Awful.

    Anyway, please nothing more about snakes on the LTE ever! No snakes in trees, no snakes in washing machines, no snakes on a plane, just no more snakes ever, ever, ever again!~!
