  1. Light production in fireflies is due to a type of chemical reaction called bioluminescence. This process occurs in specialized light-emitting organs, usually on a firefly's lower abdomen. The enzyme luciferase acts on the luciferin, in the presence of magnesium ions, ATP, and oxygen to produce light. I know you already have this information, and this is the reason I could use a firefly tail slurry with other chemicals to bioassay ATP in seeds. We measured the illumination in a scintillation chamber. Abstract of our study

    Boss rant

    I've not read the other comments and only the beginning of your rant. However, that is often what happens when you are good at what you do. A 'good' boss recognizes this, and would rather retain you in place for more hours than having to hire someone else to get all the work done. Good is relative to who is doing the evaluation. Just my point of view, and I can be a rebel.
  3. Brought the dogs in when the thunder started.
  4. They want you to miss them when they are gone.

    Hit and run

    Junk yards are wonderful places. Such a good feeling, when you find what you need. Do they still let you go remove the items of interest, or do they do the finding and removal? In olden days, the hunt was half the fun.
  6. Depends upon who is wearing their hearing aids.

    Junk mail can be fun, but political mail is a PITA.
  8. WOW! Very impressive.
  9. Sounds good, but not a problem I am facing on either place.
  10. Sounds like they don't require appraisals now. That was the biggest road block for us 'many years ago'. Getting ready for one of those is a PITA for us.
  11. Eastern Montana Fair in Miles City is still on and I will take photos of exhibitors with their animals. I am waiting to hear if the Jordan fair is still on, as I will judge photography at that one. Only a partial Billings Fair will be held with livestock, but no open shows, so no art or photography. I think the Rosebud County fair in Forsyth, 45 miles to the west is still on. Virus cases are still increasing, but mostly in rest homes in Billings.
  12. Tellers and others are pretty understanding in our small town. Heck, I would sometimes visit with people I knew that were driving when waiting in line and I was walking or biking .
  13. Walk through here walks with the cars. Inside is by appointment only. This may last for a while.
  14. Why don't you go play with your pellets??
