Good news and bad news. Good news Marquette’s Butler and Crowder are in the NBA Finals and scored the Heats first 8 points. Bad news heard MU is letting go of 200 more. Is that true


Looks like it

Happy National Hair Day everyone!

Thanks to Covid, my hair is regaining that late-70s look I rocked in high school (albeit with a tad more gray)....

It's Kansas, so I guess anything is possible.  Well, except for NCAA football championships.

My daughter lived in Kansas for a year. Hungover 14-year-olds are definitely a possibility.

So the TV is on in the background right now and a commercial comes on for Colace. The line that caught my attention was “even birds can get constipated.“

I did not need to know that.

Definitely not an issue where I live.  Our truck looks like it is an official toilet for migrating waterfowl. And based on what shows up on our sliding glass doors, there are birds that can apparently poop horizontally.

Maybe they take their Colace in Northern Wisconsin, and it kicks in when they get to your neck of the woods....

I'm on the panel for YouGov and they send me surveys a few times per week, sometimes political, sometimes other stuff.  Today's began with a survey on attitudes on vegetarian meat products, but then it asks some random questions:



Lemme count .. About six dozen of you hosers.  Crean, John Dodds.
 That Arby's guy who gave me a regular and screwed me out of the beef n cheddar I ordered.

More than 5.

So they captured the first live murder hornets in the US out in Washington, and now are trying to find the nest before the hornets enter the 'slaughter stage'...where they go all Little Bighorn on beehives in the area.

I'm pretty sure I never want to meet a murder hornet....

Yep. The bee population has already been declining at an alarming rate, and having a negative impact on agriculture. If these hornets gain a foothold and then spread, it could be devastating.

Sounds like agriculture officials in WA state are taking this very seriously.

Depends, honey bees are a non native to the US.  There are thousands of other NATIVE bees that can fill in for the missing honey bees.

Sure, your price of almonds and almond milk will increase, but we aren't talking about total collapse of agriculture here.

And murder hornets won't bother with the native bees, since they aren't colony bees...  Also, native bees are ten times as effective at pollinating.

Will it suck for honey production and almond production?  Yup.  Devastating if this continues.  End of Ag?  Not even close.

Speaking as someone who has active bee hives.

No kidding. I remember a couple decades ago when we were all in a panic about the killer bees moving up from South America.

Maybe the murder hornets took them all out…

Agree... and for what it’s worth I never said (or implied) this would be the end of agriculture.

Still, the economic impact of significant disruptions in plants that use non-native species for pollination would still have a dramatic impact on the overall cost of food.

It would certainly impact food cost.

Pollinators are responsible for 35% of the food supply.  I recommend this doc:

Major cause for pollinator decline? Corn and soybean farming practices...aka, ethanol.

Yeah, I didn't say pollinators.  I said honey bees.  Big big difference.
