And they were singing



The day the winetop died. Above is a pink flower for Pink Saturday, see more at Aunt Snow's place.

Mikey has some pics up
. (I'm guessing that first one is a Blood Red Trumpet Vine, Distictis buccinatoria, and the next few are assorted Lantana.)

Although the winetop kicked the bucket, I still have a computation device (as any fule can see). But it doesn't have all the bells and whistles and such, let alone the bazillion pictures stored on the winetop (I just might have to put it in the oven!).

Still to come: many unfinished posts. Or else new pictures, one never knows.

(Cross-posted at Whiskey Fire. Mouse over pics for captions, and click them for larger versions.)

a Blood Red Trumpet Vine, Distictis buccinatoria

Campsis radicans sez I, looking at the stigma and the leaves in the background. But closely related.

Doh! Campsis radicans is what I've labeled the ones I see around here.

But I was looking up red trumpet flowers on the internets, saw a Distictis buccinatoria offered by a California plant dealer, and leaped to my conclusion.

As least I'm still breathing, unlike the burgomaster.

Now you'll have ZRM complaining about the way the breathers always lord it over the metabolism-challenged.

Perhaps the winetop kicked the bucket because the levy was dry...

Lovely pictures. :)

RIP winetop.

That probably should have been, "Rest in Pieces", after thundra threw it at the wall.

Not throwing it at the wall, Jennifer. I'm tempted to put it in the oven, though.

The catches are 1) it's not so easy to get the motherboard out of the Dell D630, and 2) the hard disk should still be fine, it's the video card (though that is integrated into the motherboard) that is the problem.

I have a lot of pictures and a few documents on the winetop that I want to save...

I will miss that drunken computer.

If you decide to attempt the baking, there may be disassembly instructions at iFixit:

They've helped me destroy several computers.

Blood Red? I love Slayer.

The likely root of your problem is that you haven't drunk enough.

You and Mr. Machete taking all these pretty pictures of flowers? It's kinda...faggy. Moar pictures of men on rider mowers holding guns, pleeze!

Holy sweet potato vines!
