Diadophis punctatus in the garden early this evening. Ring-necked snakes are rarely seen in the daylight. I had turned that soil earlier in the day that was probably nice and warm. I looked away a minute later and it was gone.

Tomatoes planted. Lettuce doing great (as are those couple of stray scallions that decided to join the party) #gardening

On April 16, 1918, Terence Alan "Spike" Milligan was born. He was the co-creator, main writer and a principal cast member of The Goon Show, performing a range of roles including the popular Eccles, and Minnie Bannister characters. Eddie Izzard described Milligan as "The Godfather of Alternative Comedy". "From his unchained mind came forth ideas that just had no boundaries. And he influenced a new generation of comedians who came to be known as 'alternative'." Members of Monty Python greatly admired him. In one interview, which was widely quoted at the time, John Cleese stated "Milligan is the Great God to all of us". The Pythons gave Milligan a cameo role in their 1979 film, Monty Python's Life of Brian, when Milligan happened to be holidaying in Tunisia, near where the film was being shot; he was re-visiting where he had been stationed during wartime. Graham Chapman gave him a minor part in Yellowbeard. The Goon Show (starring Milligan, Harry Secombe, and Peter Sellers) was a British radio comedy programme, originally produced and broadcast by the BBC Home Service from 1951 to 1960. The programme exercised a considerable influence on the subsequent development of British and American comedy and popular culture. It was cited as a major influence by the Beatles, Monty Python (especially Cleese, Chapman, Gilliam, Palin and Jones) and the American comedy team The Firesign Theatre.
