    Hey Bud? Groooannn.
    Reminds me of the joke about the botanist having two sons. One was a budding genius, the other a bloomin’ idiot.

    Glad you’re not hiding your wisdom under a basket, Justin! You rock yourself.

    Ah, the cycle of watery life… Plus puns; always, plus puns. Just as rain makes the green go round, puns make the humor go round. And that ain’t hay, hey? (Not the Medieval humors, either.)

    I beg to differ! Rain makes the merry go ’round! LOL

    This one always makes me cry, and today is no exception. Altho a little bit more of a special meaning, as yesterday was my 14th month sobriety anniversary, so I guess you could say I, too, am starting my new life. Thanks, Justin! ♥

    So very, very proud of you Ame. It’s one of the hardest habits to kick, but one of the greatest feelings to be sober after wasting so much time being wasted. I’ve been clean and sober for years, so I can say for real that I know how ya feel. Happy 14 months and keep up the great work. ;:^)

    re: night-gaunt

    we’ve been having droughts in a number of areas of the world. Less evaporation means less heat energy.

    The Total Solar Irradiance dropped 5W/m2 in fall 2004. It’s stayed down since then, dropping even further at times. While 5 watts per square meter might not seem like much, it’s approximately 1300 times the total electrical generating capacity of the planet. Made for 6000 record lows during 2005 alone. No hurricanes in 2008. Almost no sunspots in 2008.
    .
    More recently, we’ve had record cold from the Ganges to Argentina, with the lowest temps ever recorded in India this year. The last frost in the Ganges is at least a century back.
    .
    The cold has affected crops throughout the world. Medford, for example, two years ago, had such a cool summer that the pear crop (their largest single crop) didn’t ripen at the usual time. This year the upper midwest had 40s during high summer, which affected crops.
    .
    The Pacific Northwest hasn’t had a spring since 2008. The winter weather has been lasting right into July the prior four years. This year it was June, but back in the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, it was not unusual to see 60s and 70s during the day in the spring and to have sunny weather, starting in march. Now, it’s 50s right up until june or july and rain. The intermountain west/great basin normally has about 200 days of sunshine per year. It’s been running less than 100 since 2005.
    .
    A great many mountain plants have died off from the cold. The blueberry crop has been disastrous the last couple of years because of such short seasons. Last year the blackberries in the western cascades in many places didn’t even get ripe and it used to be a consistent August crop.
    .
    A lot of information, I know, but I literally did write a book on it.
