    Fireflies is what we call them

    Yes, much of the country (US) does as well. But in and around B-more, they're lightning bugs. Interstingly the biochemistry of their light production mechanism (luciferin/luciferase) was worked out by McElroy, Seliger, and colleagues at my (and Matt Polk's) alma mater back when I was a lad.

    We call 'em fireflies and lightning bugs in PA. I call 'em "glo-a$$es".

    People nowadays can't lift that weight. TV makers easily saw it coming a long time ago.

    Pretty sure ours is an '84 model (hand me down from my parents, long, long ago). We don't do much in the way of TV watching (perhaps needless to say).

    Someone left this at my door while I was out briefly this evening. LOL
    It's only 6/10 box and vinyl, but I appreciate the gesture. :-)
    Maybe they'd prefer to hear it over the CCR I had moderately cranked earlier today.

    What Bert Kaempfert track(s) is/are on it? It'd be very cool to have Swingin' Safari on an LP :)

    Funny how I like the ones with a check mark a lot and also most of the RED highlighted ones also. ;)B)

    There's quite a few more I like that I would've highlighted for sure!

    Finally, a moment of quiet without my three roommates bugging me. This will end in about 30 seconds when they get back up the hill... :/

    Frisbee opportunity time. ;)

    Looks like a nice field beside the river for a picnic.

    What is in the clump of trees at the end of that path your other fine 3 went to visit?

    @joecoulson - Here's one for your daughter. Smart, loving, and large (over 16 lbs at one time. I know that's not a record. I've seen a 36-pounder in person. But this one wanted to be ON someone at least two hours a day.)
