Before you find you're a dull fellow

``You're making an awful noise,'' our pet rabbit said, in his most scolding of tones.

I stopped swinging the rubber mallet and let go of the putty knife. ``Yes, I know, but it's for a good reason.''

He poked his nose between his cage mesh, almost close enough to nibble at the knife's handle. ``I don't think you understand. It's you and you're doing that thing where you make noise.''

And please follow the rest of my dialogue with our pet rabbit over on the humor blog. Other items from the past week are:

Trivia: Zoysia grass, two strains of which were introduced to the United States in 1906 and in 1930, is native to Manchuria and North Korea and Manchuria. Source: The Lawn: A History of an American Obsession, Virginia Scott Jenkins.

Currently Reading: Colonies in Space, T A Heppenheimer. I missed the detailed thoughts of how much farming our Space Colonists would be eager to do, but harvesting infant bunnies in space for their meat? I can see why they downplayed that in later O'Neill Colony Agitprop. I didn't need the assurance that the space goats would not be fed space onions lest the space taste get in their space milk; I plan to let all known or suspected space goats be. Also, the assurance that people will be able to go to ``buffet-style'' restaurants seems to be micromanaging.
