One of our local photographers took pictures of it and sent them into a 'small cabins' site. can't remember which one. single slant roof to let the winter sun in / summer sun out. yes, south front room.

I'm gone make lemonade out of those cherished lemons if the secret about that frontroom is not coughed up toute suite!

Ah and they are so dense that they touch each other at the mere whiff of air, and so that woodtick does not know he's having the frontroomon the south.

Are the buggers self pollinating or do you have to cut a little piece of and replant it...oi presto more forest in the frontroom!

There are two strong reasons for his front room window to be facing south. First he is living in northern Minnesota, he is going to need sunlight for his tree and that almost demands a south facing window. Second he is on the north shore of Lake Superior and for that odds are that he would have a south facing window to see the lake, unless he is on some sort of inlet or bay.

And I was late in my reply since I am listening to YouTube (Atheist Experience clip) and I was very slow in my typing.

One gigantic wasp that ones a year pollinates the frontroom!
fu.k:)))

Normally i look things up, but lemons must be simply put male+female on one tree. South bigger flower growth, hence bigger lemons. Easier process.

And what if the frontroom was of the north? Would everybody here then alsohave an AHA erlebnis? Or would there be groaning and moaning?

yes, when we purchased the tree we were told it is self pollinating so we do not need more than one tree or any artificial pollination techniques.

one does need a vacuum for when all the petals and sepals fall off!

You sure your eyelids are unfrozen yet. lol

So it's the FLUD!

Now i am going to look it up. At least now i know where to find the frontroom. Handy if i need some lemons.

First unload an abstract:

Abstract
Identification of lineage-specific innovations in genomic control elements is critical for understanding transcriptional regulatory networks and phenotypic heterogeneity. We analyzed, from an evolutionary perspective, the binding regions of seven mammalian transcription factors (ESR1, TP53, MYC, RELA, POU5F1, SOX2, and CTCF) identified on a genome-wide scale by different chromatin immunoprecipitation approaches and found that only a minority of sites appear to be conserved at the sequence level. Instead, we uncovered a pervasive association with genomic repeats by showing that a large fraction of the bona fide binding sites for five of the seven transcription factors (ESR1, TP53, POU5F1, SOX2, and CTCF) are embedded in distinctive families of transposable elements. Using the age of the repeats, we established that these repeat-associated binding sites (RABS) have been associated with significant regulatory expansions throughout the mammalian phylogeny. We validated the functional significance of these RABS by showing that they are over-represented in proximity of regulated genes and that the binding motifs within these repeats have undergone evolutionary selection. Our results demonstrate that transcriptional regulatory networks are highly dynamic in eukaryotic genomes and that transposable elements play an important role in expanding the repertoire of binding sites.

Although cross-species conservation has been successfully used to identify functional regulatory sequences in genomes (Thomas et al. 2003; Boffelli et al. 2004; Wang et al. 2006), there is growing evidence that changes in cis-regulatory elements are important in determining key phenotypic differences, as shown in yeast (Ihmels et al. 2005), pufferfish (Tumpel et al. 2006), Drosophila (Gompel et al. 2005; Marcellini and Simpson 2006), and human (Rockman et al. 2005). Moreover, a number of studies have shown that evolutionary turnover of regulatory elements is a common feature of eukaryotic genomes with examples in yeast (Tanay et al. 2005; Borneman et al. 2007; Tuch et al. 2008), Drosophila (Moses et al. 2006), zebrafish (McGaughey et al. 2008), and mammals (Dermitzakis and Clark 2002; Birney et al. 2007; Chabot et al. 2007; Odom et al. 2007; Jegga et al. 2008).

He's got a network of transposons in the frontroom!

he's manually pollinating his lemon tree or he's got lots of insects in his room. lol

Alas, i am inland form the great lake a few miles so no view of Superior, but i do have a nice view of a waterfall on a trout stream. if i climb the mountain behind us, i can see both Lake superior to the south and canda to the north!
