hey Folks

All things Come Together;

1) I’ve been updating my website, keywording and updating some of the information in the wildlife photos gallery. Keywording means latin words, for some weird reason. The latest in technology presents information over the internet in a language so old no one even speaks it any more – ‘cept for a bunch of ole poindexter scientists. 🙂

2) We all know, full well, April 10 marks the date the Beatles officially broke up. Bummer.

3) April 15th approaches. We all know what that means. Yikes! Way total bummer.

4) Next month, May, marks the birthday of my namesake, Carl Linnaeus.

So, let’s bring those  things together; this is a tribute to George Harrison and Carl Linnaeus. See if you can finish this; gimme your best verse.

Let me tell you how it will be
A name for you, a name for me
Cause I’m the Taxonomyman
Yeah, I’m the Taxonomyman
Your common name appears too small
Be thankful I have grouped you all
‘Cause I’m the Taxonomyman
Yeah, I’m the Taxonomyman

Cheers

Carl
