Everything is trying to kill us.

Call us back if it turns red

Ooh, I guess Buffalo got the red sun treatment. Is that a Toronto Blue Jay? Did they go back to Canada yet?

Was red here as well. So was the moon.

It was really nasty here last night until we had some T-storms come through.

I've never had a problem with our friendly neighbourhood crows.

Boiling ≠ Steaming

Also, blanching ≠ boiling. Many vegetables, like broccoli, are great after blanching for about 4 1/2 minutes. Much longer and they fall apart. Longer still and they become mush, and some of your cruciferous vege start getting that sulfurous smell.

Do you know what a group of crows is called?

It may have when it got lower in the sky. Too many building in my area to see it once it gets below a certain height.

My throat got a little irritated while walking home from work. At some point I realized I had left my phone at the office. No way was I going back to get it.

A flock.

They are still plotting.

You should goggle it.

As far as you know.

I call them a flock, thus that's what they're called.

Reminds me of a little ditty. Put on your best dancing shoes!

But, you generally don't see more than six in a lawn; they're not especially social.

LesterOfPuppets 07-21-21 09:53 AM

Ooooh. Go M's, keep on winning and get that wildcard!!!

Tell that to the two dozen or more who congregate in the big tree across the creek from me.

That has not been my experience. Mass murder happens in my front yard on a regular basis.

I always figured those names for groups of animals were some cutesy Edward Gorey-type stuff that someone made up in the not too distant past. I find it suspicious that they are more often recited than used.

I sometimes wonder how olde those terms are too. I'd like to think they've been around since the 18th century, but you never know.

Somehow I wound up electroplating for a year and a half and that occupation is riddled with terminology that surely must date back to the days of alchemy.

And then there's sailing...

Haven't they changed the name yet? I reckon there will be a settlement, but if not I vote for Neptunes.

Oh N/M, they're just mad about the name of the stadium restaurant.

The uncivilized west has entered the chat.
