Fun Guy

The post is a pun on fungi, the plural of fungus.  Clearly  "fungus" is latin, and so the plural is not part of the English canon.  It follows the canon of Latin plurals, hence Fungi.  [pronounced
 FUN GEE with a "j" sounding "g"].

I took Cousin Gareth for a wander in the Mohi Bush.  In late Autumn you see, especially in a wet Autumn, lots of rot,  produced by Fungi of every kind.
































Wordworth wrote, after a walk in the fields, " all at once I saw a crowd, a host of lovely daffodils".  What would he say to these flowers?  They are of course, the flowers of a fungus.  The fungus plant is simply a white thread that pushes its way through plant material in the lookout for sugar, or substances that will turn into sugar, like starches.  Even wood has enough  sugar to feed a fungus.






























Some more, not far away.


































Here, a fungus grows out of the side of a tree.  It has a tough layer on top, and a layer holding spores underneath.






































This umbrella is quite large.  The fungus flower is very soft and easily broken.



















The soil is perfect for the growth of ferns.






















This log is almost com;etely rotted away.  The whit along the underside of the log is composed of the mycelia [hollow tubes] of the fungus plant.  The form and shape is most haphazard. The fungus is in great contrast to the beautiful regular form of higher plants with their distinctive leaves and flowers.























This piece of wood is almost completely turned to soil, the perfect place for ferns to grow.

















































Very tiny mushroom heads can be seen in this fotograf. Quite a different fungus to the ones that feed on wood.



































This fungus projects from the trunk of the tree like a swallows nest.  It is white and soft underneath and amazingly hard on top. 




























Another fungus on the same tree.


































The same type of fungus on another tree.

















































This tree has been cut to clear it from the path.  The wood has begun to rot under the attack from two fungi, at least.  One can be seen at the bottom of the picture.  It looks like the ones I showed before.  The most interesting part is the "Spalting" [sounds like "salting'].  This is where dark lines are produce in the wood from a fungus that grows in the wood, and then dies as the wood dries in summer, and kills the fungus.

As you can see, if you make things from wood, all things to do with wood become interesting.  Cheers Chris the Pipemaker.

Thusly, since the number 7 is twice as simple to make as a 4, we hope to get paid twice as much as our wager when we win.

The distinction just comes when the players don't need to change and be the investors. It is a round of 6 or 7 players with 3 wagering spots.
