Aspen tree grove
Love learning new things. There's a grove or colony (not sure which you call it) of Quaking Aspen trees in Utah that is 80,000 years old. Aspen trees spread by their root system and apparently this root system has been alive for 80,000 years.

Pretty cool.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Aspen tree grove
A single organism has been alive for all of recorded human history and well into prehistory, growing above ground, in a climate suitable for it, sometimes being driven back by fire above ground but remaining alive below, since the Late Pleistocene period, at the start of the last glacial period, over 60,000 years before the ice age would reach its maximum extent.

No no no and one more NO!!!!!

The world is only 6000 years old! Doncha know? Wink

I will call him a liar and a dog here and now.
