Autumnal Trivia 


Autumn leaf color variance in vine maples.


Why there is so much color variability in fall leaves. (Short version for non-scigeeks: turning red protects leaves from "the too-rapid breakdown of chlorophyll" in excess light conditions, but variance in exposure --> variance in color.)

From the Botany Photo of the Day blog of the the University of British Columbia Botanical Garden. Posted especially with the mother-in-law in mind, as a long overdue thankyou for the occasional odd link. Via BoingBoing, of course.

I really enjoyed you cooking magazine website. I also have a site about cooking magazine Please take a look. I hope you will find it interesting
 
Dear "Blaze", et. al.

How odd! You see, I have no "cooking magazine website."

Perhaps you have me confused with someone who is dumb enough to think that a billion blog comments which share the exact same syntax and structure, yet claim to be from a myriad of different authors, could be in any way legitimate.

Your comments are an insult to me and my readership.

As such, however tempting it is to enjoy a broiled Newsweek for my supper some evening, I think I will not, after all, be visiting your website about "cooking magazine."

You truly,

Boyhowdy
 
I just came across a great gardening website called AtlGardening.com*. Not only does it feature articles for the gardening enthusiast, but has become a great bush garden
resource for me in my landscaping effort. The webmaster of this site has recently added a book section that seemed to expand everytime I go there.
What I like about it is that I get instant access to the book and don't have to wait for the book(s) to arrive which of course saves me money.....no shipping charges.... in some cases. Great idea. I love it. You must check it out today. Let me know what you think.
 
online, free of charge! It doesn’t matter if your enterprise is a purely online or offline venture,
