    Just read about a pumpkin-spiced hot chocolate and a latté. Only one word comes to mind: yuck. I think I'll keep my pumpkin in the pie or soup.

    Anyone got access to a barrel of single malt scotch or a truck load of Guinness? Maybe you could "lend" it to me for the weekend? I promise to return the barrel or the truck.... or both, if some one out there is feeling really generous.

    AS long as the truck will move itself from A to B, and stop when so desired, I'm good. OH YA, and it has to have the appropriate amount of fuel to go with it.


    YA YA I know. Here I go putting in "conditions". Well you asked! ahahahahaahaha

    Tank is full when you get it, you return it that way. Warning, refinance your house prior to going to fuel up.

    Well now, that would only be right neighbourly to return something borrowed, as it was "found". And ya, no kidding on the refinance. 'Specially around here, although at this end of the world, diesel is usually a bit cheaper than gasoline. Usually.

    Cool Wasps’ Mating Ritual Bares A Striking Resemblance To A Nightclub At Midnight

    Now, the buzz on wasp love

    CP Wire , Times Colonist January 8, 2013

    The Canadian Press

    VANCOUVER — Biologists have discovered that a species of fast-flying male wasp uses some smooth moves to build harems of female lovers.

    A team of biologists from Simon Fraser University used high-speed cameras to record and observe the mating rituals of the tiny parasitic wasps, Ooencyrtus kuvanae.

    Lead researcher Kelly Ablard says the female wasps emerge from their eggs sexually mature and looking for love. Lusty little buzzers are at the ready.

    Female wasps mate just once in their four- to six-week lifetimes, Ablard says, and the wasps’ mating ritual bares a striking resemblance to a nightclub at midnight.

    “Females of this species only mate once and they mate when they emerge … and the males at this point only really have one opportunity to get a female and mate with her,” says Ablard, whose research appears in the latest edition of the journal Behavioural Processes.

    Males emerge from the egg about a day before females, and wait.

    In this highly competitive situation, some crafty insect Casanovas have devised an antennae-to-antennae love tap that marks females with a potent pheromone.

    “Certain males in a competitive setting will adopt a type of mating strategy, a mating tactic, that allows them to basically collect, gather and guard a harem of females, which is highly unusual for insects, or invertebrates for that matter,” Ablard says.

    The chemical substance serves the double purpose of marking the females so the male can find them later for a few romantic seconds, and deterring other, slower, lovesick suitors.

    “That female will wait for him to come back and mate her later. In the meantime, he runs around and he tags a whole bunch of other females for this harem,” Ablard says.

    Some males do mate ’em as they meet ’em, Ablard says, but the quicker, more agile males mate with multiple females.

    Whoops sorry, got a little lost on the way to the head. Anyhow C.O.T. I'm here trying to help you, did I prattle on about all the benefits of abstaining from alcohol? No I didn't. Nor did I reccomend some carrot tofu juice alternative either, and now you are digruntled with this arrangement also.

    If you are female we can sit in a booth and share drinks. If you are a hard tail, I say we'll sit at the bar and drink a round or two.


    I don't want anyone thinking I'm liking guys.

    You got a deal C.O.T. We'll just stand here at the bar and drink till we're out of money and not like each other.
