10 reasons not to have kids

from here

We are going to have this written up on flyers so we can just hand them out when people ask us why we are not going to reproduce ;)

1) They are Noisy
I am not saying that all of them are, I wasn’t, but the fact is that most of them will be constantly mouthing off about something. They have questions coming out the ass every day, day after day. No single thing is too small to be worthy of comment, no problem too insignificant to whine about, and then there’s the nagging. They nag. You give in once and after that they never let up.

Cats will eat your face

Man this is turning out to be a good day. So looking at my stats program and I love to see how folks find me via google. This might be my favorite so far. I need to be result #1 though.

From here

In my experience, a dog may go for several days before finally resorting to eating the owner’s body. A cat, on the other hand, will only wait a day or two. Just goes to show you which is more loyal. So, the next time you’re falling asleep on the couch with the football game on, take a look at your cat. He’s not watching you because he’s enamored of you; he’s checking to see if your chest is still moving.”

My obsession with this came from this Malcolm in the middle episode which we just happend to watch last night.

Fuggles is a sneaky chewer-upper

Puppies love to chew stuff, she did some damage when she was a puppy. My birks are hurtin. She has gotten better but seems to selectively chew parts of things that really suck. I am no fan of my hair. I love to wear a hair helmet and a certain style of Jager hat fits the bill for me (he he, bill). She chews out just the strap that adjusts the size. Good thing ebay seems to have them often.

Then instead of chewing up my shoes she just pulls out the insert and shreds them. I have had to get some replacements from the store. At least she does not do any more damage. My pinball machines are one of the few safe places to store stuff.

That would be 4th street. It used to have train tracks down the middle but it got tore out a few years back. There are still two other train tracks that surround my house. So when they have train tracks the road is rock on either side. Well 4th street is getting paved and the northern end of the Jamacia North trail will run along the side of it.

The trains do not bother me, but the dust from the limestone roads gets old. Plus the maintenance on them is insane. Around 4 times a year new rock has to be put down and the surface grated. Just a huge mess. I am gonna use the heck out of that trail when it is done. A straight line to wilderness.

The construction has been going on for a month or so. Big equipment beep beep, but it will all be worth it. They started by replacing all the sewer and water lines under the road which is pretty cool since we have had a few water main breaks recently. Looks like they are only doing 1/2 the road at a time. I bet it will be going on for quite some time.

can we please just call it Tradescantia zebrina

Tradescantia zebrina, wandering jew

Man it is one of my most favorite plants, and I have a bunch, but calling it wandering jew is….. well uncomfortable. It is Tradescantia zebrina. To call it a weed is an understatement. All of this overtaking my yard came from two 4 inch plastic containers from Urban Trail gardens. About $5.

It grows like kudzu and treads lightly. It has roots that need not even be near the soil to dig in deep. Every node tries to get water. If you have it as a houseplant it will invade any dirt near in days. You only need a small leaf and a node and you can get it to grow right away. We just kept pinching off little sections and poking our finger between the wood chips and stuck it in there. Not a single slip died or wilted, just took off. It is unbelievably beautiful with the deep purple, shiny silver, and green. The stalks look like something from the Amazon.

They suck up sun like crazy. The east side gets the most sun and you can almost hear it grow. We are now to the point of trying to keep it contained and away from choking off our other plants.
