How I envy the site in Monterey. I 'd love to see it. I just watch them pass through and breed here and lay eggs, caterpillar and new bug. Is Professional Entomology your life's work?? Yes, the eco-nazi', as you call them, did put a damper on butterfly collecting. I had a collection as a boy, and be...

[. Try deleting part of the quoted text, and see what it looks like by using the "preview" button down at the bottom. Keep doing this until you get the hang of it.

OK: here it is, deleted all but the last. Sorry if it is
clogging up the thread, but I have to learn somehow.

Yes, even this discussion of Pin/Pen seems somewhat

You are really good. Do you stay up nights figuring
these out???? All those names, would drive me crazy,
(crazier). If I start with palindromes I probably will never
stop: sort of like crosswords, or potato chips.
I have, however, bookmarked that site. Thanks.

I truly do watch butterfly culture. {Not being too sure what you mean by 'butterfly guy"} I have always been intrigued by the Monarch and it's 3000 mile journey. I used to sit on the banks of the Platte River decades ago, in October, and watch one bug fly four feet forward, and then the wind wo...

Sluggo, Beck: How do you get your quotes in the box, like you did in your last posts. I also cannot "embolden" a word using the B at the top. I highlight, and press it, but the [b] appears in the text, and no emboldening of the highlighted area. Slava told me to make sure the BCC button is...

Living in the great "no accent"(that I know of) Plains,
is that:
"That guy down there, he's got one, the same color as
yours".????

I'd like to start a new topic, which I plan to try as soon as I finish this post. What I'd like to discuss is how people in the media, who, alone among us (with the exception of those who have educated them) bear a heavy responsibility to use our language - the essential tool of their profession - ...
