Things You Don't Know

Dear Constant Reader,

Do you know what Astragalus is?
I sure as Hell didn't, and I'm not that terribly better off knowing.
I suppose that I probably should give a rat's ass when I write about something that I'm supposed to give a rat's ass about, but I just don't feel like doing that right now.
I feel like crawling into bed, and never waking up.
I'm going to try and go to bed (sometime tonight), and try to have a far better day tomorrow.
Hey, I went to church today!
Do you really give a shit?


Astragalus (As-trĂ¡-ga-lus) is a large genus of about 2,000 species of herbs and small shrubs, belonging to the legume family Fabaceae, subfamily Faboideae. The genus is native to temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Common names include milk-vetch (most species) and goat's-thorn (A. gummifera, A. tragacanthus). Some pale-flowered vetches are similar in appearance, but vetches are more vine-like.

Did you really need to know that?
