Funny how wacky and off-topic some of these threads can get...and you know, alcohol is a PLANT-derived product, fitting in with the vegetarian lifestyle quite nicely...

Now, my original fly-fishing mentor, a fellow who tought plant ecology during my "formative" years at the U of M Biological Station and was a highly accomplished forest ecologist himself, used to say he liked to have a beer before hitting the stream to "steady his nerves". He also liked to "smoke a rope" - actually, a cigar - while fishing as his "mosquito repellant". I do not emulate either of these activities - hell, I don't even LIKE beer or tobacco - but there were more than a few days on the Huron in Ann Arbor when, being right across the road from the river, I would stumble over in various states of mind and fish since it didn't involve driving a car! Of course, the nice cool water against my legs and ass and the thrilling fights from the smallies as they turned sideways in the current helped me keep focus...

Jon,

You don't have to worry too much about Taxon...a boy with a last name like Rohrbeck understands the old Reinheitsgebot...Bier = Wasser, Gerste, und Hopfen...period! No better protein supplement for a veg-o...by-the-way...Or at least that's what I keep telling my long suffering Frau. I just like my vitamins in a liquid format.

Ich auch spreche ein bischen Deutsch...aber nur eine kleine bischen...

Check your private mail for an SBF report, Herr Spencenmeister.

Spence-

Nicht verstehen. Wenn Sie sich beziehen mein Posting-Frequenz, nicht sehr viele Kommentare über Taxonomie im letzten Monat oder zwei.

Roger,

Ok...But you are allowed to just drop by and straighten out us weirdos when we blow off course...Which we are wont to do, eh! Or you could just say hello from time-to-time so we don't worry that you may have wandered off somewhere...:)

May be you three "bugs boys" have finally got us neophytes up to speed a bit...Nah!!! We are slow learners no doubt.

I'll try and get you something to look at over the next couple weeks here to keep you busy a bit.

Take Care!

Spence
