Intriguing Tree Switch

Monday, 17 February 2020

These young visitors to Homosassa Springs, Florida seem to be intrigued by the natural beauty of the Red Cedar Tree, which is only one of many kinds of trees growing in this, ‘Nature’s Own Attraction’, located on U.S. 19 and 98, just 76 miles north of Tampa and St. Petersburg.

Saturday Matinee – Hercules Beetle Pupa, The Husbands of Target, Chapelle on Smollett & The Pips

Saturday, 15 February 2020

Just when we thought we’d seen it all, the internet dishes up a fat, red alien baby that looks like it’s been ripped from the scorching sand dunes of Venus (we wish).

In reality, it’s just a Hercules beetle in its pupa form, enshrined in a chrysalis as it prepares to take on its adult form. But let’s not talk it down too much – this writhing cocoon is about to become one of the largest insects on Earth.

More about that beastie here.

I heard this on The Tim Conway Jr. Show KFIAM 640. The video is even better.

Heh. “Jucet Smolliet.” Dave Chappelle is one funny guy.

In 1977, _____ & The Pips appeared on The Richard Pryor Show sans Gladys Knight. IIRC, she had laryngitis that night.

Have a great Presidents’ Day weekend, folks, and we’ll do some stuff tomorrow.

Bone Cold.

Wednesday, 5 February 2020

Egyptian bone figurine, 3700–3500 BC (somewhere in that 200 year window). Her eyes are made from lapis lazuli, and she looks cold. She doesn’t look very happy and apparently she was quite hirsute.

“It’s A Colorful Day In The Neigh-Bor-Hood”

Tuesday, 4 February 2020

Damages could run into hundreds of thousands of dollars.

“He obviously has a drug issue or something going on, [neighbor] Klawans said. “I have just never seen anything like this in my life.”

The Collier County Property Appraiser’s office says the house belongs to 40-year-old Jeffrey Leibman, who neighbors said did the damage over the course of a week.
