Golo Whale =a marine mammal with no insulin resistance problems
  6:22am Rob from Maryland:

Whales actually evolved from hippopotamus relatives.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 6:23am dday:

Closest I ever got to a whale (an Orca) was outside it's re-hab tank at Mote Marine Research Center in Marathon FL. Got lucky enough that day to assist in vet checkups on two bottlenose dolphins that were part of a mass stranding on the Gulf side of FL. Incredible day.
  6:23am Rob from Maryland:

dday, that is incredible!
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 6:25am dday:

The vet was actually the French guy that you may have seen on the PBS show about dolphins that had Robin Williams. A late 90's episode.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:27am Scott67:

Gettin late here & a big day. So out for the country count kids!
Thanks Amanda & Jim.✌😎
Love to all!✌😎🌏🌻

“Deerhoof track” uh huh
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:45am Scott67:

I'm an Artist, & I like Magritte.
  6:46am Rob from Maryland:

@Dutch, no worries! I grew up with the wolvelike theory of whale evolution too. It's almost jarring to think that carnivorous whales evolved from herbivorous hoofed mammals.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:48am Scott67:

Retractable Horns.
  6:48am Rob from Maryland:

I'm not an artist, and Magritte is probably my favorite artist.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 6:51am Strandlund:

Good Morning Jim & Amanda!! I work in an Art Museum and I like Magritte.

Great to hear all this! Now where are all my Magritte haters?

There’s def a value judgement implied in the word ‘monster.’

monster
mŏn′stər
noun

An imaginary or legendary creature, such as a centaur or Harpy, that combines parts from various animal or human forms.A creature having a strange or frightening appearance.An organism that has structural defects or deformities.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:29am alanSixº:

The lochness monster isn’t an actual animal right? Technically it’s a myth ?
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:29am dday:

A human defect. We call things we fear or don't understand "monsters"

  7:37am Morgan:

good morning amanda jim + all. way back when you mentioned poetry and music—i know someone who writes poetry but hates music (?!) and has no patience for lyrics set to music. they think it sounds ridiculous.

i thought taking cats to the vet was bad
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:47am dday:

If I were Max's keeper I'd sleep with one eye open :)
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:48am Strandlund:

Our cats "sing" like they're going to the gallows when we take them to the vet...
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:48am dale:

i was watching gunsmoke on pluto and festus asked a guy with a guitar if he knew 'don't go kickin' my dog down the road' i googled it knowing he was originally a singer and 'stop kickin' my dog around' was a real folk song (which you probably knew amanda).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:48am Amanda:

@Morgan, I think that's a totally valid perspective! Poetry and songwriting are distinct disciplines although ofc there is some overlap.
Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:51am dale:

Avatar 😼 Swag For Life Member 7:59am dday:

My view on poetry vs. lyrics (I've written tons of lyrics but in no way am I a poet) is it seems poetry has more "rules" than lyrics meant for songs. Just my way of looking at it. I enjoy both.

Morning Amanda and Jim, I’m impressed with how long a show of this theme can go. There’s a lot of references in Jamaican Mento songs

haven't played pin the tail on the donkey in a long time, so not sure if they basically are horse tails.
