Hello, David. Et Al.
Avatar 4:03pm Sem:

Good evening, David. It was likewise a gorgeous Spring day here: the hummingbirds arrived two days ago and the garden has aspargus for me today.

βrian, Stanley, hello once again.
  4:03pm Al:

Hello βrian
Avatar 4:03pm David D:

Greetings βrian and Stanley and Sem and AI!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:04pm doctorjazz:

Hi David and fellow travelers!
Avatar 4:04pm David D:

And Doctorjazz!
Avatar 4:07pm βrian:

Mmm, asparagus!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:07pm Stanley:

Hi Sem. Hummingbirds are, perhaps, the most wonderful creatures I have been fortunate to see (India). Love asparagus, too. In fact I made asparagus soup today. Times are good with you, it appears.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Uncle Michael:

I made asparagus soup yesterday...and sighted the season's first hummingbird as well. The soup is for tonight. Greetings, all.
Avatar 4:09pm David D:

Yes, definitely asparagus season here - and raccoon season. That is in fact one of the raccoons inhabiting the tree right outside the radio station here.
Avatar 4:09pm David D:

Hey UM!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:09pm Stanley:

I had no idea you got hummingbirds, over there.
Avatar 4:10pm Sem:

All good here, cool cat.

Hey, UM.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:10pm Uncle Michael:

Hi, David.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Stanley:

What's happening? You got racoons in Germany?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:11pm Uncle Michael:

I had no idea you got them in te UK! I know Europe hasn't got them. In fact, I thought Croatia was lousy with them, but it turned out to be a kind of moth!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Uncle Michael:

Our raccoons aren't arboreal. They dig dens. We feed them.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:12pm Stanley:

Got what Uncle?
Avatar 4:12pm David D:

Stanley: Yes, they are originally from North America, landed here decades ago and have recently begun showing up in places like this,
Avatar 4:13pm βrian:

I recall seeing a video of a raccoon who was given some cotton candy. Naturally, he wanted to wash it before eating, but when he dipped it in the water: *poof*
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:13pm Uncle Michael:

Avatar 4:14pm David D:

Hola Gary!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Stanley:

Uncle: no hummingbirds here. I just saw them on my travels. We've got asparagus BUT I WANT RACOONS.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:14pm Uncle Michael:

I just came in from getting the last of the winter debris on the burn pile. I hope to burn this weekend before birds nest in the pile. It was only four pickup truck beds worth this year.
Avatar 4:15pm David D:

Stanley, I'm surprised they haven't found the chunnel yet.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:15pm Uncle Michael:

We have a resident mama raccoon who usually blesses us with a litter of 3-5 little ones each year...very cute.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Parq:

Take away their wings, and the birds would have to walk to get around. Or maybe hitchhike.
Avatar 4:17pm βrian:

I once woke up to find my cat chasing a raccoon across my bed. They'd found their way in via the chimney, and boy did they bring a payload of fleas!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:17pm Parq:

< whispers "chirp chirp" >
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:18pm Uncle Michael:

We had a squirrel in the house once and never figured out how it got it. It's payload was urine. It deployed when terrified...and boy, was it ever.
Avatar 4:18pm Sem:

Last Fall, I found a raccoon somnolent on the deck, bloated with all the grapes it'd eaten from my vines. Big bastard didn't even try to get up. Just moaned once or twice, rolled over, and went back into a stupor.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:19pm Stanley:

Parq: they couldn't hitch hike as they have no thumbs.
Avatar 4:19pm Sem:

no thumbs, think of it. Sad.
Avatar 4:20pm βrian:

A bit fermented, those grapes?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:20pm Stanley:

Hitch hiking is a dead art now, what with cheap travel and paranoia
  4:22pm Gary via app:

Love this cover!
Avatar 4:23pm David D:

Chirp, Parq!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm doctorjazz:

My wife is out stumping for her cousin in the Democratic primary for the House, District 11 (vote Mitchell Cobert!!!!!), so I'm having pizza for dinner...
Avatar 4:23pm Sem:

Don't think so, βrian, but really sweet, so likely a diabetic coma, or something.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:24pm Parq:

Stanley, right? I have fond memories of hitching, but if my kid ever did it, I'd have a retroactive heart attack.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:27pm Stanley:

Parq, like you, back in the day, it was the only way to travel. Now, you hardly see a soul 'on the road'.
Avatar 4:28pm northguineahills:

Had a deadline to get an experiment ready to put in the field tomorrow, so just now got home for lunch. 4:30, and my first meal of the day (leftover Korean seafood soup).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:28pm Parq:

Speaking of my kid, would you guys believe raccoons on a city fire escape? It's true. The kid lives near the south tip of Highbridge Park, and the critters make their way to the back of the building.
Avatar 4:29pm northguineahills:

I've never hitched, but I've picked up a few, usually college kids.
Avatar 4:29pm David D:

Bon appetit, NGH!
Avatar 4:30pm βrian:

I hitched a bit, in the US and France.

Once we got picked up by some luxury car. When I stepped out at the end, I was briefly puzzled to see a huge dark splotch on the fancy upholstery. A few moments after the car pulled away, I discovered the ruptured ink pen in my back pocket. Oy.
Avatar 4:31pm David D:

Raccoons seem to have different cultures of shyness in different places. Here they're all in the trees. And in Vancouver they'll walk right up to you in the park.
Avatar 4:32pm northguineahills:

I'm now officially a lab tech (when told what to do). I've been asking to do lab work for the last month, and I finally got the chance (IT, spatial database management, and GIS is all fine and good, but I want to do everything our company does, even if I don't have an MS in biogeochemistry (just a MA in geography).
Avatar 4:34pm βrian:

Years ago, Michigan shut down their Geography department, since it was thought obsolete. That was a really short-sighted decision.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:35pm Stanley:

I vowed never to hitch hike again after I read 'Under the Skin' by Michel Faber
Avatar 4:36pm northguineahills:

I was just listening to the Anthology of Chinese Traditional and Folk Music Vol 5 in my car. Don't know much about it, as the title is the only thing in English. (found it in a thrift store a few years back).
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:37pm Parq:

Stanley, you would think people would have been too scared to pick up hitchhikers after that hitchhiking scene from "In Cold Blood".
Avatar 4:38pm northguineahills:

@βrian: Yeah, UF almost did as well (a lot of schools did), then in the late 80s early 90s GIS rescued the Geography Departments around the world).
  4:40pm melinda:

Diary of a Teenage Hitchhiker on TV in the 70s scared me away from hitchhiking.
Avatar 4:40pm Sem:

Thanks for the link, Stanley. A bit off-putting, as you say, in the realm of hitching.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:41pm Stanley:

Natacha. I wondered what happened to her. Love this song, by the way.
Avatar 4:41pm David D:

One of the dangers of hitchhiking here is that your driver might think of the Autobahn as a raceway.
Avatar 4:42pm David D:

Stanley: Natacha is still performng and recording, I believe. I think she's based in London.
Avatar 4:42pm David D:

And hi Melinda!

  4:51pm melinda:

David did you know there's a German version of your Muppets theme? It came up on Mayuko's comments board
Avatar 4:52pm David D:

Melinda: Wow, I will have to look for it there - thanks!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:52pm doctorjazz:

Watching Babylon Berlin on Netflx, cool show (wife doesn't like it much). Pretty creepy.
Avatar 4:54pm David D:

Doctorjazz: Then the next two definitely go out to you...
  4:56pm melinda:

U-bahn is more upbeat than Subway

Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm Uncle Michael:

David, have you seen the Harmonists film?
Avatar 5:02pm northguineahills:

I showed my wife Babylon Berlin (I already watched it). She binged it when she was sick). I love interwar Germany.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:04pm doctorjazz:

Seems like it was an insane place/time!
Avatar 5:06pm northguineahills:

Well, love is maybe not the right word, but the art world and social changes were interesting.
Avatar 5:09pm northguineahills:

I caught up w/ Occupied, It's a good series.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:14pm Uncle Michael:

Das Dead!
Avatar 5:15pm David D:

Yes, that is a fascinating period in history. And I didn't see the Harmonists film but I did ride the wave of their rediscovery here in Germany in the 90s.
Avatar 5:20pm David D:

If rediscovery can have a wave, that is.
  5:37pm Lord Johnzon:

A salaam alaikum fellow passengers
Avatar 5:49pm David D:

Greetings to you, Lord Johnzon!
Avatar 5:55pm Sem:

Thanks, David, I see my stop coming up. Hope to see you, the raccoons, and all, next time around. G'night.
Avatar 5:56pm David D:

Thanks, Sem - have a great week!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:03pm Webhamster Henry:

Hi I've been listening but also had the volume down. But I did catch the ř set!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:05pm doctorjazz:

Off to scrounge up some food (culinary delights of Staten Island), probably catch more in the car, thanks, David!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:06pm doctorjazz:

Love this track (Amie), bad timing, trying to leave...
Avatar 6:07pm David D:

Have a safe trip home, Doctorjazz. Is the Road House still open for business?
Avatar 6:07pm David D:

And hello Henry!
  6:09pm Doctorjazz:

Road House is still there, but have not been there in years. In the mood for falafel...
Avatar 6:10pm βrian:

Rode the bus home, ran some errands, came home, and here y'all are. This is lovely.
Avatar 6:10pm David D:

Sounds good, too - the Road House pizza was pretty good as I remember it...
Avatar 6:10pm David D:

Welcome back βrian
  6:11pm melinda:

I like this track too but it sounds quite different from the Pure Prairie League version
Avatar 6:11pm David D:

Melinda, once again I am intrigued...
  6:14pm melinda:

Haha, it's totally different but I love it too, I guess you'd call it country rock
Avatar 6:23pm David D:

*That is John Gilmore on saxophone and percussion vocals.
Avatar 6:24pm David D:

Melinda: I will have to look for that as well...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:40pm melinda:

I meant to say it is a totally different song, yet with the same atypical spelling "Amie" which is why it seemed funny to me.
Avatar 6:42pm David D:

Okay, it still might be good though, of course!
Avatar 6:46pm David D:

There really should be a suggestion box function on the playlists. But I guess the comments board works too.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:51pm melinda:

Here are the U-bahn muppets: www.youtube.com...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 6:53pm melinda:

This is the other Amie: www.youtube.com...
Avatar 6:53pm David D:

Wow and thanks, Melinda!
  6:55pm Lord Johnzon:

I don't know why but this is good gardening music... at least it's making digging up my yard more fun for me anyway.
  6:56pm Lord Johnzon:

People would abuse a suggestion box... you could always email the DJ... if you wanted to abuse them a bit lol.
Avatar 7:00pm David D:

Sure feel free, Lord Johnzon!
