If you play bass, I'd recommend trying out Please Do Not Go by Violent Femmes. I learned it myself today, and it's very satisfying to play.

Tall, dark-haired QuarryMan likes basketball, music, and naturally, girls. He was a valuable participant on the track team. He is one of Freeport's great contributors to the recording world. As for the immediate future, QuarryMan has no plans, but will take life as it comes.

I play bass when I can get my hands on it -- usually in a band setting when the regular bassist plays piano and I fulfill the bass duties. a-hard-days-night-john-6

Thing I learnt today: Wombats produce square feces so that they can pile them up in prominent places as markers to communicate with other wombats. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

My sister randomly asked me, 'What's a wombat?' probably from some book she was reading, and so I googled 'wombat' so I could show her images, and this was in the results.

I don't think I've done this before, but I've learned more about an old entry.

In the early nineteenth century, ketchup was sold as medicine.   

Ketchup was sold as medicine in the 1830's as a treatment for diarrhea.

The meaning of the word 'agelast'

There's a few, very few people I know that I now have a word I can use to describe them........ agelastic .....Unlikely to cheer them up much.

^ I knew someone like that. She passed it on to her kids.

Her husband was a Vietnam veteran with really bad PTSD. I don't think he could stand any noise hardly at all. So the lady had to keep her kids quiet all the time.

Regarding place names in England, etc.

the suffix "-bury" derives from the Anglo-Saxon "burh," meaning "a fort or fortified place."

Examples:
Canterbury
Shrewsbury
Salisbury
Banbury
Oldbury
Newbury
Aylesbury
Tewkesbury
Glastonbury
Westbury
Dewsbury

That makes sense. I imagine it would be very similar to the burrows bunnies make.

It is estimated that there are about three million species of fungi of which only about 144,000 have been identified by science.

In 2013 two mycologists from Kew bought a packet of dried Chinese porcini mushrooms at a London supermarket. Sequencing the DNA for the 15 pieces of mushroom in the packet, they discovered all were three new species unknown to science!!!

I'm going to become a hunter of new species of fungi. I've got a punnet in the fridge. Bound to be that at least one hasn't been discovered yet.

They'd be called 'Nasty Mushrooms' That would spawn a whole new sub-culture of 'anti mushroomism'..You'd have to change your board name to Ron Fun'guy.....

Wouldn't be the same......

Never really listened to the lyrics, so I didn't realize till just now that Petula Clark's "I Know a Place" is kinda about the Cavern Club! ("It's a swingin' place, a cellar full of noise...")

QuarryMan, Ahhh Girl

Someone said 'What were you gonna do when it's all finished,' and I said 'I don't know but it'd be good fun being a DJ.' And since then I've become a DJ, only by word of mouth, you know. SO any minute now you'll read, 'Ringo leaves to become a DJ' but it's not true. - Ringo Starr
