GregArcus, to fishing

Some health issues, including a few days in the hospital have kept me off the water so far this year. Very frustrating. I'm going to get ou there soon.

Hey . Can you help me figure out a mystery?

I have recently inherited a bunch of pictures from my Mom's estate. I found this picture among her things - a picture of an African-American boy.

My family DNA is pretty much 50% cauliflower and 50% Wonder Bread. So, who is this fine young lad, and why was his picture put in our family album?

Interesting, eh?

GregArcus,

@ScottStarkey @genealogy Check with a local L.D.S. church to see where they have a family history library. They have everything.

    Another reason why I 🧡 the web.

    https://trains.fyi/ is a live, real-time map of passenger locations in North America. 🇨🇦🇺🇸

    Data is updated every minute, and the map updates automatically.

    GregArcus,

    @davidbisset Is there something like this for freight trains?

    Even with a blah sky, I could not pass on taking an image of this Canadian National Railway (former Illinois Central) Pratt truss bridge over the east branch of the Galena River. Jo Daviees County, Illinois

    Periodic bitching is an unavoidable symptom of a lifetime spent fishing.

    How do people spend so much time arguing with strangers on the internet? Whenever someone tries to argue with me I simply transform into a bat and fly off into the night, back from whence I came.

    GregArcus,

    @lowqualityfacts What are you talking about?!

    GregArcus, to fishing

    It's a little known fact that the barometer was actually invented by a fisherman. It's original pupose was not to measure atmospheric pressure, but to provide scientific-sounding excuses for not catching fish.

    @Ashley @nfl Not until the end of the season. It's a Bears tradition.

    Pineapple on pizza is, oddly enough, a Canadian tradition. Hawaiian Pizza was invented by Sam Panopoulos, an Ontarian restauranteur of Greek heritage, in the 1950s.

    GregArcus,

    @MeanwhileinCanada

    It's edible but that's not pizza.

    @GeekSusie Big crowd.

    sciencewrighter, to Nikon

    Pls advise this newbie. Want to post a Q about repair where knowledgeable tooters will see it. I don't know how to get a query broader attention beyond the realm of my server (right term??), @m.ai6yr.org, and my (few) followers. Please don't hesitate to use very simple directions. Is there, e.g., an index of Mastodon servers? And how do I post my query to a server once I find it? In appreciation, here is a photo of a caterpillar in my garden.

    GregArcus,

    @sciencewrighter This person may be able to help you with your server list question.
