Dandelions are pretty, I think! (and if you don't think so, go take a black and white photo of them - they're stunning!)

hmmm, black and white photo. That sounds interesting actually.

I guess dandelions have sort of a negative conotation given they are considered a weed, but your right, they actually are quite pretty, sort of like mini sunflowers on the ground :)

Thumbs up

Your age is the equivalent of a dog that is 5.79491193737769 years old. (You're still chasing cats!)

Those 41 candles produce 41 BTUs,
or 10,332 calories of heat (that's only 10.3320 food Calories!) .
You can boil 4.69 US ounces of water with that many candles.

Your Native American Zodiac sign is Elk; your plant is Mullein.


Very fun!! Alix thanks for sharing.

Middie, violets are one of the most gorgeous flowers, also considered a weed to some much like my "plant" the dandelion. My native american sign is the hawk.

First of all, Sush, you are not a jerk. Secondly, you will need many more candles to boil more water. I have quite a few years on you and can boil over 6 ounces of water. Good news is, all you have to do is live longer. Ain't it great!!!!

Oh no, my husband and I are not on each other's most compatable list. I aways thought we were pretty compatable. (Even though the man can't boil as much water w/ his candles as I can.)
I'm an Aquamarine, Hazelnut tree, Horse, Hawk, Dandelion; and Peyton Manning and I have the same birthdate, Yea!
Thanks for sharing that, Alix. It is really interesting. I was especially surprised by the songs. Am I that old?.....
