Two questions: leads on vernal ponds in south central Indiana? And, what happens to this community when G+ ends? Haven't kept up with the service lately, unfortunately.

+Molly Howe G+ has failed to attract the mass of regular users that Google had hoped, and they recently announced some changes that its critics took to mean an end to the service.

I don't think G+ is going anywhere anytime soon, but Google is known for reallocating resources toward newer products with little notice.

Wasps!
 
Spring is in full-force here in Austin, and the paper wasp foundresses are out gathering wood shavings from which to build their nests. Here's the stunningly-colored Polistes exclamans, caught in the act of scraping the fence in our back yard this afternoon.

Also, wasps are wonderful animals. The "wasps are mean" meme just makes me sad, especially since most of my most... memorably painful social insect encounters have been with various bees and ants, rather than wasps.

This one time, I went there with my brother and sister-in-law. My BIL was wearing mismatched plaids. Why? I don't know why. He just was. It's America, for crying out loud. My laissez-faire attitude, it seems, was not shared by one shrill older woman, a self-described "fashion consultant" who verbally ripped my BIL a new b-hole because of his fashion faux-pas. IT WAS WACK.

So, it's a park. What is has to do with buildings, other than your average city park restroom, or trades, I have no clue. Some rough looking fellows were playing basketball (possibly juggalos), so I just kept driving, but I sure don't think it's the kind of place I'd want to hang out for any long period of time.

I love to sit next to grave markers with my pipe, smoke my cherry tobacco, and regale passersby with tales from my rambunctious youth, when no woman was too loose and no jam was too tight; I have lived, lusted, and loved and if you'll bend your ear my way, you may come away with a renewed appreciation for this life!
