Hmm.

Saturn’s ocean moon Enceladus is able to support life − my research team is working out how to detect extraterrestrial cells there.

Yay! Glad they're coming back to Detroit.

I was so disappointed when Detroit Public TV moved 20 years ago from the New Center area to Wixom.

Detroit Public TV returns to its roots, moving headquarters back to Detroit, in the Milwaukee Junction neighborhood.

What recommendations do you have for protecting broccoli from cabbage moth/butterflies?

@shekinahcancook Thank you. I've never heard of that. When do you start spraying? And how often do you spray? (I'm in southeast Michigan, zone 6b.)

I never would have imagined when Suits ended in 2019 that it would become a massive cultural phenomenon 5 years later.

@shawnhooper @cgrymala Yes, my son is a huge fan now. I don't remember him watching it when it first came out, though my husband and I always watched it.

@peterhoneyman We talked about going to Ohio, too. But saw their weather forecast was similar to our forecast here in southeast Michigan.

    @chris I'm not a fan of sitting in cold rain either, but I had lots of practice watching my child's soccer games. At least we could bring big umbrellas. Will you be going to White Sox games, too?

    I worked on unclogging the tub for nearly an hour.

    Now I feel so drained.

    Plan for the day is to attack my inbox for an hour or two, pack lightly for an overnight, drive to Detroit, check in to the Ferry St. Inn, spend the afternoon at the Art Institute, dinner at Mario’s, then the highlight, Herbie Hancock at Orchestra Hall.

    @peterhoneyman Hmm. For some reason, I can't see this image. Comes up with "media hidden."

    I can see and read your other posts with photos and alt text.

    I finally decided to sell my vacuum cleaner.

    All it was doing was gathering dust.
