BDP to the Moon!

Ja.mes- “This is the burial ground (1823) of Walcot Village Hall (1849). Josy, can you add your great morning glory fact.”

Josy– Um.
Well, we’re all aware of the hallucinogenic properties of the plant, right? Aztec priests, for example, used to use it to commune with their gods. Morning glory seeds contain a chemical called LSA (Lysergic acid amide, a compound closely related to LSD) that could produce a very trippy experience… if commercial producers didn’t coat their seeds with a non-water-soluble toxic chemical to discourage this practice. This means that if you try to ingest the prepackaged seeds from your local seed store, you’ll probably end up poisoning yourself. There are, of course, ways around this problem… and the internet is a big place. 😉

Ja.mes- Wha! Bng! Fgg!!! I didn’t mean! DRUG USE?!

Josy- But you asked for a great morning glory fact!

Ja.mes- THE FLOWER!!!

Josy- There are no great morning glory facts that have to do with morning glory FLOWERS!

Ja.mes- (keels over in unmitigated frustration)

  1. I found this chapel last morning, after finished the measuring in Royal Crescent. It is a lovely building.
    Several artists are having a exhibition in the chapel so I popped in the chapel. The idea of having a exhibition in a chapel which is surrounded by graves is very cool!

  2. une vraie photo de printemps, elle est tres belle. je te souhaite un bon weekend


    a true photograph of spring, it is very beautiful. I wish you a good weekend

  3. If you want a comment on the flower: morning glories are a beautiful flower–especially the deep purple blue ones with fuschia highlights–but they take over wherever they are planted, like ivy or lilies of the valley. Gardeners end up weeding them out of other flower beds forever–unless you just let nature take its course.

  4. Thaat’s what i meant. Thanks for th e info Josy.

    i had to log in…because im apparently counted as spam on my own site….i didn’t even make it into the the awaiting moderation category.

    OLIVIER: THANKS

    BARB.: great to have all bases on descrip. covered

  5. It’s the best time to make a few plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have learn this post and if I could I want to suggest you few attention-grabbing issues or suggestions. Maybe you can write subsequent articles relating to this article. I want to read more issues approximately it!

  6. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your posts as long as I
    provide credit and sources back to your site?

    My blog site is in the very same niche as yours and my visitors would certainly benefit from some of the
    information you provide here. Please let me know if this okay with you.
    Appreciate it!

  7. Wow, awesome blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?
    you make blogging look easy. The overall look
    of your web site is magnificent, let alone the content!

  8. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m
    going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
