Quoting NEwxguy:Thank you snake for that information, the next time the conversation comes up about Great Banyan trees,I'll be able to wow the people with all this information.You just never know when the subject might come up,so one has to be prepared.
Quoting 282. RTLSNK: Well, there it is then, its Official, in keeping with the Arks reputation of "You heard it here first", according to the Guinness Book of World Records, "The Worlds Widest Tree" is the Great Banyan Tree at the Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden, in Shibpur, Kolkata, India.It covers 3.5 square acres of land which equals roughly 156,000 square feet, or 14,400 square meters. The Great Banyan Tree's canopy is made up of 3,511 aerial prop roots that connect to the earth which make them look like individual trees.You heard it here first!:))
Quoting NEwxguy:I may get a few jumbies around tonight coming in with the storms this evening.May be a little rough tonight if those storms out in NY stay together. Will see you arkers tomorrow.
Quoting NEwxguy:If my wife wakes in the middle of the night hearing noises,I'll just tell her to go back to sleep,just some guy from Trinidad dropping in to raid our refrigerator,he's harmless,supposedly.
Quoting NEwxguy:Seems to be more action going on after midnight than here during the day,and it wasn't even a full moon last night.
Quoting pottery:WHEW ! That was close….I just managed to jump through the window as SB came barging in brandishing a WaffleIron.I think I'll keep a low profile for a while……………..
Quoting pottery:What a Strange Night…..Firstly, me and Elmer got into the old Horse Costume I found in the attic.Then we went over to Snakeymons garden to get some flowers.But it seems that he woke up and started shining lights out there shouting ''Oi you deer ! Leave the flowers alone'' while stamping noisily around brandishing a loaded firearm.Well, we managed to make our retreat, but ended up in his kitchen (Elmer was in front, and could not see properly because he had forgotten his spectacles).Then Snakeymon comes into the room and opens the fridge and starts humming a sweet melody about the calorific content of Thai food.He was so into munching and humming that he never even noticed Elmer in the corner decked out as the front portion of a mangy horse.Anyway, we seem to have had a very nice time, chewing the fat and polishing off a bottle of dark rum. But I don't remember much after he very kindly left saying that he was going to bring the mountain to me, instead of me having to go to the mountain.I just woke up.I slept quite well, considering.First time I ever slept in a kitchen sink, too.No sign of Elmer…….
Quoting RTLSNK:Well, that will teach me, Pottery and I raided the fridge at 215 in the morning last night. We polished off the chicken pad thai, the minestrone soup, the baked ham and baked beans, and then had sausage and blueberry waffles and scrambled eggs. Holy Cow Batman, can that guy eat!Then we got into the Dark Myers Rum. How did he know I kept a magnum of the stuff under the kitchen sink? Well, anyway, it goes really good with Wild Cherry Pepsi you know. :)Don't know what time exactly he left, I had Fred fly him back home, he said he had to go to work on the mountain this morning. Good luck with that. heh heh heh
Quoting RTLSNK:Yes, I do know its 0200 hours, I had gone to bed early last night and was sleeping peacefully when I had this dream of a guy running around our back yard with a cutlass, yelling "Off with their heads", and chopping down all of the plants and flowers in the gardens.I jumped out of bed, grabbed the Colt 45, flipped on the outside security flood lights and checked the gardens and there was no one out there but some deer munching on the day lillies. The lights scared the hell out of them and they took off into the woods.I checked with Tony and Fred and they said they had not seen anyone out there all night.Strange dream. Well, back to bed. Must have been caused by some of the new veggies I had with dinner last night. Some kind of purple lettuce looking thing that SugarBear says is good for me. :))
Quoting RTLSNK:Just spoke to the Captain, he should be up andrunning again by tomorrow. YEAAAAA
Quoting 246. pottery: OK then.I went up the hill, where heavy rains are falling.Then I came back down again.How cool is that !
Quoting 224. RTLSNK: The Captain should be back today, a lightningbolt took out his router last week, new one should be up and running today. :)
Quoting RTLSNK:Hmmmm, thats strange, all the Avatars have disappeared.Its going to be a strange day, be prepared.Snake out.
Feel free to hang out & chat amongst yourselves. Anything goes as long as it's good clean fun!
