For one thing, many people think spiders are insects. They're not.

Both spiders and insects are invertebrates, but spiders are not insects.

Insects have a head, thorax and abdomen, and the thorax has three pairs of legs. They also eyes, antennae and mouthparts, the Explorit Science Center website points out. "The entire body is protected by a tough outer covering called an exoskeleton. Animals that share these characteristics are called insects. The group to which they belong is called the Insecta."

Spiders, as the Explorit Science Center explains, have two main body parts. "The body consists of a combined head and thorax called the cephalothorax, and the abdomen. The cephalothorax has the eyes, mouthparts (no antennae) and four pairs of legs. Animals that share these characteristics include ticks, mites, scorpions and spiders. The group is called the Arachnida."

Spiders? Them Recluses hav,in no excuses`es git smeared onsihgt!

off't once one went right up the running shorts
Not near enough of a pant leg
The creepy crawler went for the a soft 'n tender
the result was like being in a blender Of pain

In so much as the significant other had plans
to go hither not only tither and non-
 She took little notice and continued on
driving from place to place

I started to trace colors and see trails.
She might have never caught on,
if not for at one stop
An old 'good' girlfriend's place,
Where I, in swift decline
declined some Single Malt,
To which Her then current bo at the time
nudged ex-betty , saying:
"Sallie, somethings all wrong with that feller 'Spider'Mikey"
true story
don't get bitten
don't get bit in the scrotum
go to the hospitable place 1st not last if you do
if you do? if you get bit by a Brown Recluse,
in one of those places or anywhere,
you're gonna gnow it


The McMickey to ya!


Er'n go braugh



Erin go Bragh

is an English corruption of the phrase

Éirinn go Brách
In the Irish language.




The standardized spelling in Irish is

Éire go Brách,

which is pronounced [ˈeːrʲə ɡə brɑːx].

Ex0
couldn't make that up
 nor type that

It wasn't the family dog, I'm certain.

It wasn't this fellow, either. Just saw him in Modesto this afternoon.

It may appear that these pix are posted entirely at random.

This is the case, although it was not my intention.

It's probably the sativa from the Ceres weed mart.

Three old guys are out walking.
First one says, “Windy, isn’t it?”
Second one says, “No, its Thursday!”
Third one says, “So am I. Let’s go get a beer.”

They go into a bar and order their beers, with a shot of whisky each for luck.
They sit in the corner talking about old man stuff.

Shortly, another old guy comes into the bar and asks for a bottle of 40-year-old Scotch. The bartender, not wanting to give up the good liquor, pours a shot of 10-year-old Scotch and figures that the man won’t be able to tell the difference. The man downs the Scotch and says, ‘This Scotch is only 10 years old! I specifically asked for 40-year-old Scotch.’ Amazed, the bartender reaches into a locked cabinet underneath the bar, pulls out a bottle of 20-year-old Scotch, and pours the man a shot. The man drinks it down and says, ‘That was 20year-old Scotch. I asked for 40-year-old Scotch.’

So the bartender goes into the back room, brings out a bottle of 30-year-old Scotch, and pours the man a drink. By now a small crowd has gathered around the man and is watching anxiously as he downs the latest drink. Once again the man states the true age of the Scotch and repeats his original request for 40-year-old Scotch. The bartender can hold off no longer and disappears into the cellar to get a bottle of prime 40-year-old Scotch. Soon, the bartender returns with the bottle and pours a shot. The man downs the Scotch and says, ‘Now this is 40-year-old Scotch!’ The crowd applauds his discriminating palate.

One of the three old guys in the corner, who had been watching the proceedings with interest, raises a full shot glass of his own and says, ‘Here, take a swig of this.’ The man takes the glass and downs the drink in one swallow. Immediately, he chokes and spits out the liquid on the floor. ‘My God! That tastes like piss,’ he yells. ‘Great guess,’ says the drunk. ‘Now, how old am I?’

And true to his colors, His Silliness keeps on keeping on, blabbing and tweeting his hateful hate...

Donald Trump issued the first veto of his presidency Friday afternoon, rejecting a congressional resolution that would have blocked him from funding his border wall without congressional approval.

Trump tweeted about the political advantage he expects those who supported him will receive for supporting his emergency declaration.

"I'd like to thank all of the Great Republican Senators who bravely voted for Strong Border Security and the WALL. This will help stop Crime, Human Trafficking, and Drugs entering our Country. Watch, when you get back to your State, they will LOVE you more than ever before!" Trump tweeted Friday.

Put the blame on Marlow, Mame.

"High" art is today more stupidly money-driven than football and the American presidency.--Marlow

"His work is old-fashioned and newfangled, a carefully calculated mixture of literalism and obscurantism."--Jed Perl

It's High-Art Sunday here on The Flames.

It's a brand new tradition and I hype you like it.

It's not nearly as popular as Black and White Friday, but it's relevant in an NPR way, or so it says in the program guide.

I had never even HEARD of Francis Bacon, the Irish artist, until today, St. Party's Day.

Francis Bacon's 1969 painting Three Studies of Lucian Freud was bought at Christie's last night for $142.4 million, setting a record for the most expensive piece of art ever sold at auction.

(It beat the previous record, Edvard Munch's The Scream, sold in 2012 for $120 million).

But while the Irish painter, who died in 1992, reigns over the art market, his critical legacy is more divided. In this 2009 essay, Jed Perl panned the painter's art as empty and nihilist, celebrated more for his bad boy reputation than its artistic value.
