Upgrades, upgrades. You sound just like Dr. Mrs. The Monarch subby. Do you know how much it costs to feed and house henchmen? Jesus just the other day 21 was biatching about the choices in the 401k I had to set up.

I was a very happy individual this weekend.

We had a monarch stop by and feast on our flowers.  I almost never see them in Oregon.

I've seen Fender's Blue Butterfly more than monarchs

//Someone's been mowing the lupine the FBB was using, so I haven't seen one in a while. :(

Where I am I usually only get them on the flight S. Just not enough milkweed here for the cats.

I sincerely hope I go before they do.

/Yeah, real fun at parties.

Fox News science articles are usually pretty damn accurate and solid (unlike the rest of Fox News).

I seem to recall learning this in sixth grade science class. In 1982.
