I had to pick an ELO-related bird name for myself, so "bluebird" was a natural choice. Unfortunately, "Bluebird" (with an L) was already taken, so I had to get creative. Fun fact: On other sites I usually go by "BitterLimeParakeet," which is also a lyrical reference.
My name is kind of inspired by the kind of self-deprecating fictional names a lot of musicians would come up with. ELO's own 'Horace Wimp', 'Jeremy Hillary Boob' from Yellow Submarine; that sort of thing. I thought 'Chester A. Nobody' would be a sort of a clever nod to some of my favorite groups.
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
