Oh. That's logical. Well, I have chores to do today. No further guesses. I only checked in to make sure I didn't guess correctly.

Well . . . so far no one is entirely right, but no one is entirely wrong.

Hint: Newton chose the Dorian mode as his model for the color wheel because he liked its symmetry - i.e., its two half-steps are equidistant from the middle, unlike the other modes.



Salty Wrote : orange (red/yellow combination) and green.

Mr Blue Wrote : blue and indigo

Rusty Wrote : green and indigo.

So if all are half correct :

It seems that this leaves indigo and orange

Sorry! I forgot I answered this question. Let me figure something out.

Okay. Dogs. The Queen of England has Welsh Corgis. There are two sub breeds. One traditionally has docked tails. The other does not.

What are the long-tailed Corgis called?"


We have what is probably the most successful off-leash dog area in the world near me. It is called Marymoor Park, it is 40 acres in size and on a decent weekend day well over a thousand people show up with their dogs. I went for a walk there yesterday and as on any good weather Sunday, there were a couple of hundred dogs there. This time I noticed the Corgis more and sure enough, there was a Cardigan (long-tailed) Corgi in the park!

Any Australian that lives in the country could name the animal that left this present outside my parents place.

What animal could it be ?

Looks like a present from a cow to me.

I can't recall what kangaroo crap looks like, but it seems an unlikely spot for a kangaroo or wallaby. Big for an echidna.

Womabt ?

Yes - it is a Wombat present.

That was an interesting article on wombats.

Jerome Geils of the J. Geils Band died today.



Name anybody else who was in The J. Geils Band.

Back on the subject of Wombats, I assumed they were reclusive and stayed away from people and buildings.

Do people or animals ever fall into collapsed burrows?

At one time the lead singer was Peter Wolf.

Dogs get killed in Wombat burrows - as they chase the Wombat down it - the wombat - slinks to the floor- and when the dog is on top of the wombat - it stands up - crushing the dog against the roof of the burrow.

So far - never heard of a person injury - at my parents place - loads of Wombats - but they tend to keep their burrows away from noisy areas - which I suppose makes sense..

Still though - they poop square -

I used to listen to J Geils band A LOT! Magic Dick was my favorite! I saw them live in St. Louis in 1974. They were the best party band ever.

Correct! Your turn, Roland.

J. Geils was the lead guitar, Magic Dick played harmonica ( he was my favorite, too. ), Danny Klein was the bassist. Seth Justman and Stephen Jo Bladd were the other two, but at the moment I don't recall which was the drummer and which was keyboard player. I was lucky enough to see the Freeze Frame tour the week the album hit number one, but "Give it to ME" & "Love Stinks" aside, I think I was the only one on the floor who knew the words to the older songs.

When I saw them in 1974, they came out on stage and Magic Dick had his harmonicas in a briefcase shaped like a penis. They were great but played way too fast, almost twice the speed as the records. Might have been drugs!
