Ha ha! He blew it! It's not his birthday yet! Not until the 30th. So much for him typing 70 words a minute... yeah, maybe, but the accuracy? Not so good. So, um, hold on to all those good thoughts, people... but thanks for the reminder. I'm going to have to come up with a recipe.
Good thing I saw this... reminded me to wish the birthday boy happy birthday!
He's getting leg of lamb, parsnip timbales, Brussels sprouts something, and cake will be Christmas fruitcake and panforte, because at this time of year I am up to my knees in Christams baking so he will have to grin and bear it... I think he can.
All this is not so much because it's his birthday but because his younger brother is coming for the weekend... his younger brother who does NOT, contrary to our fears all through October, have esophagal cancer and so will not be dead in a year or so. (Unless he works on it some other way, of course. Not tied to the railway tracks listening to the whistle in the distance is what I'm saying. The relief and euphoria around here are palpable.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
