Re: The yard's first pineapple of spring

From Wikipedia:

Fagen and Becker decided to name the band "Steely Dan" after a steam-powered dildo in the William Burroughs novel "Naked Lunch", a nod to the two being avid readers of 1950's "Beat" literature. Fagen once explained, "We just wanted to give the band a little more thrust than most other bands."

Re: The yard's first pineapple of spring

Ask for help from Steely Dan, who isnt even a real person? Now what would THAT indicate?

I'm hungry. Time for a trip to the leaning tower of pizza. I'd go by fed-ex, but its too expensive. And not part of my french benefits.

Regarding Maui Gold Pineapples: Back this last summer i started a pineapple from the top of a Costco Maui Gold. It busily got to dying off, leaves started drying up, then it got cold, so i moved it indoors into the dark of an Oregon fall & winter. Followed that up with forgetting to water it off and on. Since i'm taking off for a week i was moving things around and found the poor plant - and it's put up a 6" new shoot! Amazing. Life wants to persist. In a mere couple years, assuming i take it to Hawaii for a visit for pollination, i should be in for some goood eatin! Nice pictures Nords!
