Newly Discovered Engraving May Revise Picture of Neanderthal Intelligence
Newly Discovered Engraving May Revise Picture of Neanderthal Intelligence
"An engraving carved into dolomite stone more than 39,000 years old in a seaside Gibraltar cave suggests that Neanderthals were capable of symbolic thinking—once thought unique to modern humans." - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet
"We can definitely say it is more than 39,000 years old, a time when there were no modern humans near Gibraltar," Finlayson says. A soil layer above the bedrock ledge contains Neanderthal tools, the team reports, and chemical analysis of the carving's patina points to its age." - Ken Morley
I particularly like that the drawing may be the board of the very first game people (or rather Neanderthals) played, something like tic-tac-toe. - centralasian
Neanderthal hashtag. Sorry, Ev. - David Lounsbury

Zucchini... Zucchini for everybody!
"But we're sick of zucchini dad." - Ken Morley from email
Zucchini noodles? - Corinne L
Ooh, good idea Corinne. These zucchini noodles look fairly delicious! - Ken Morley
I highly recommend checking out She has been obsessed with zucchini noodles this summer (and she also has just a fantastic collection of zucchini recipes in general). She also did a really great zucchini roundup back in July (I've tried about a third of those recipes and they're pretty good) that might give you some extra ideas! - Hookuh Tinypants
bread! grilled or broiled - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
Grill the zucchini then add to stir fry. Grilled or griddle added to salads - WarLord
Tons of great ideas here thanks Amanda! The Pizza Bites look like a good one for the zucchini that get a little too large... plus zucchini and marinara sauce seem like a delicious combo. :) Grilling or stir-frying in olive oil with onions is my go-to method, but I have everything here for the zucchini alla scapece, so I'm having that for lunch. Thanks Lorenzo! - Ken Morley
Zucchini is one of the things that makes it hard for me to learn how to eat seasonally. I just enjoy it so much during the summer that over winter I can't help but buy all the imported zukes to quell my cravings. - Hookuh Tinypants
I know what you mean. It kills me to pay for zucchini. :) - Ken Morley
Heard from a comedian: my town was so small, we never locked the doors to the house or the car. Except in August. If you didn't lock your car in August, you'd come back to a back seat full of zucchini. - bentley
^HA HA HA! Ken, I am a fan of this Asian-influenced zucchini noodle dish: - Corinne L
How is your plum wine is coming along Ken??!! :-) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
Sepi, I'll be doing my 2nd racking next weekend and will sample it then. Fingers crossed. :) - Ken Morley
Fingers crossed at this end too :-) - Sepi ⌘ سپی
If the kids are fed up of zucchini, just tell them you've swapped them for courgettes! ;-) - Halil
^ hahaha - Spidra Webster
I can't believe I've never heard the word "courgette" before. - Ken Morley

In these home improvement shows they keep tearing out the ceiling fans. I'LL GIVE YOU MY CEILING FAN WHEN YOU PRY IT FROM MY COLD, DEAD HANDS!
And my popcorn ceiling! - Ken Morley
Seriously! - LB creeps me out. from Android
Well, you can have my ceiling. But in GA, there's a reason for the fan! - LB creeps me out. from Android
I hate when they do that. There is a reason why they are there!!! - Valz 4 TEAMMARINA
It's not really worth putting in a/c here as it's only required a couple of week a year, but the ceiling fans have been going non-stop for the past 6 weeks. Plus I'd rather have the doors and windows open. :) - Ken Morley
I remember hating that even back in the days of Trading Spaces. - LB creeps me out. from Android
I am looking at ceiling fans right now to replace one that got dislodged in our earthquake. - Anne Bouey
I hope all these ceiling fan haters live with heat flashes.....they will change their tune. ;) - Janet from FFHound!
Ceiling fans are pretty useful. - John (bird whisperer)
I think it stems mostly from the fans that they had were rather ugly and wouldn't go with what they were changing. That being said, I enjoy ceiling fans and there are some amazingly beautiful fans that are available. But I can't stand popcorn ceilings... - Chris Topher
Older houses with high ceilings do well with ceiling fans. There's someplace for the heat to rise, and lots of clearance. Things are out of proportion in a more recent, low-ceilinged house. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Popcorn ceilings and shag carpets are going to be a thing again soon. Mark my words. ;) - Ken Morley
... I forgot avocado appliances. :) - Ken Morley
Have both and hate both. I'll deal with the fans, but popcorn ceiling has looked tacky since I was a kid. This is the first place I've lived in in almost 24 years that has popcorn ceilings. So gross. - Anika
Another decade and my 1993 decor is going to be awesome! - Ken Morley
:) - Jenny H. from Android
Can't stand popcorn ceilings!!! The popcorn ceiling here makes the rooms look gloomy (all the shadows) and hold smooshed bug remains. I like ceiling fans better than ac though. - Heather
Port an M&Ms
So good! :) - Ken Morley from email
Mmmmmm. Port. - Jennifer Dittrich
The fruit flies love them some port. :) - Ken Morley from FreshFeed
I like Port and Tollhouse cookies. My Christmas treat. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
This may need to become a tradition. - Ken Morley from FreshFeed

I'm amazed at how well this is turning out. It already tastes very nice; good tannins, nice and dry (I cut back on the recommended sugar about 20%). #plumwineproject - Ken Morley
The red blush on the plums have given it a light pink colour, which should deepen a bit once it ages. I don't know if I'm going to be able to leave this alone for a year. :) - Ken Morley
My hibiscus enjoys being outside.
Jefferson Airplane - Surrealistic Pillow
"Jefferson Airplane was formed in San Francisco during the summer of 1965, emerging from the San Francisco Bay folk music boom. The founder of the group was 23-year-old vocalist Marty Balin, a San Francisco-raised singer who had established a minor career as a pop singer in the early Sixties and had made several recordings under his own name. With the Beatles-led British Invasion of 1964, Balin was inspired by the merging of folk with rock in early 1965, spearheaded by the success of The Byrds and Simon & Garfunkel, and decided to form a group to play the hybrid style. With a group of investors, Balin purchased a former pizza parlour on Fillmore Street where he opened a new club, The Matrix and began searching for members for his group..." - Ken Morley
Yikes! A blast from the past, from the past! :) - Ken Morley
