G'day mates. Here's today's daffynition:
gastric — hybrid automobile
And here's today's factoid:
The Halifax explosion which killed 2,000 people occurred on December 6th, 1917, and was the largest man-made explosion until the first atomic bomb was dropped in 1945

Entries so far in my Vowel Movement puzzle can be found on page 2 of yesterday. People are finding this one easier than earlier ones. Give it a go. Here it is again so you don't have to look back for it:
Vowel Movement I give a definition which should suggest a word pair where the words are More...

White swans, not good old Aussie black swans.
18/May/14 12:13 AM
I don't think I've ever seen that many swans in one place before.
18/May/14 12:26 AM
Keith, my issue wasn't that I don't what all the maens mean. My issue was that I wasn't sure if I was in evening or night. I looked it up after I posted and apparently it's fairly vague and subjective.
18/May/14 12:27 AM
Ah. That is an interesting question. What's the cutoff between evening and night? Perhaps dusk? But, how dark does it have to become to turn into night? Or, should you go by the clock, because in the land of the midnight sun, there wouldn't be any night for 6 weeks every year.

Good Maen!!!
18/May/14 12:44 AM
I usually go by 5 PM as the end of afternoon and the start of evening because we usually think of 5 as the early hour for the evening meal. Before that we think of . . . Hmmm. Linner? Dunch?
18/May/14 12:50 AM
Good Maen from down under.

Serena, we once visited the Swannery in Abbotsbury in England. They were breeding and very aggressive but swans everywhere.
18/May/14 12:56 AM
... and it must be 5 o'clock somewhere.
18/May/14 1:02 AM
Everyone fro beautiful So. ORegon
Isn't there a song about Swans a swimming or something like that?
18/May/14 1:07 AM
There is, but you can't sing it until December.
18/May/14 1:11 AM
It is 5 o'clock every day when afternoon turns to night ... No No No. It doesn't turn to night until the sun goes down. During the winter, that could be 5 o'clock. So, in the winter, we may not experience evening.
18/May/14 1:13 AM
This is getting worse.
18/May/14 1:19 AM
Serena, see what you started.
18/May/14 1:20 AM
Well, got me close enough to make a run for it.
18/May/14 1:21 AM
Is it dusk yet?
18/May/14 1:21 AM
Not here.
18/May/14 1:21 AM
But it is time.
18/May/14 1:21 AM
18/May/14 1:22 AM
....... So evening must be some period of time of the day that we all have to agree. Or maybe not. Each person could determine his or her own evening hours. For some, that may be the first cocktail at, maybe 4 or maybe 5.
18/May/14 1:22 AM
Nice going Keith. I almost got you.
18/May/14 1:23 AM
Good race.
18/May/14 1:50 AM
Morning is when I wake up. It lasts until noon. Afternoon lasts until sunset, then it's evening. Night is when I am asleep.
That's the way I see it, anyway.
18/May/14 2:04 AM
Little boy just lost his first tooth. Are these things always going to make me sappy?
18/May/14 2:32 AM
Swanee mAen!
18/May/14 5:00 AM
Keith, there are precise definitions of Civil Dusk, Nautical Dusk and Astronomical Dusk - see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dusk
If you Google 'Twilight' you will see an expanded explanation.
Navigators worry about these things, I don't.
18/May/14 6:10 AM
I work on the same system as Hal.
18/May/14 6:12 AM
To tell you the truth Anne I always pick the Dockers - especially at home. Good win and what a great night for Pav. He looks like he can go on forever.
18/May/14 6:16 AM
Morning all,nice swans but I prefer the black ones.
To me evening is when the sun has gone down but it is still light enough to see, night is when it is dark.
18/May/14 6:22 AM
Serena - yep!!!!!
18/May/14 6:23 AM
In lots of places in Australia 5 o'clock is beer o'clock - but then again in many places in Aus any o'clock is beer o'clock!
Just to add a furphy to the maen debate!

Hello everyone!
Ian, I was wondering why twilight hadn't got a mention till I got to your comment! It's strange no one else mentioned before that - we don't have much twilight if any down here & they should get some! Love that long twilight in England way back in '69 & 70. My Mum & Dad used to take us out for twilight picnics!!
18/May/14 7:06 AM
I note the absence of the usually vocal Peter after last night's football game.
18/May/14 7:46 AM
He must be hiding from Anne.
18/May/14 7:47 AM
Whose crowing has been modest.
18/May/14 7:47 AM
Considering her team won over his.
18/May/14 7:48 AM
And there are a few other Dockers' fans here too, it seems.
