You Might Be a Redneck...

Santa, that portly, fat, stout, jolly, sumbeeach brought me a whopper of a head cold for Christmas - thanks a bunch ole Saint Nick.

In an effort to sooth my sore throat and clear the old head I made myself a cup of tea. I happen to enjoy honey in my tea with a tad bit of milk too. Anyway, I pull out the SueBee Honey and what do I find? Sitting right here under our noses unbeknown to me is the SueBee Honey Collector's Edition and not just any collector's edition but the 8th collector's edition. This edition has a picture of Richard Petty - seven time NASCAR champion and his 200th win NASCAR stock car - sweet! I had no idea we had this item. This bad boy has got to be worth some money, even with it being opened. Feel free to send me an email with your offers.

Now, the only thing that comes to mind at this point is a Jeff Foxworthy line, "you might be a redneck if"...

Check out for a list of 300 reasons you might be a redneck. Of course above makes 301

The Birds

Nope, not an Alfred Hitchcock movie. These bird, starlings, we gathering yesterday as the snow storm (storm #1) was getting underway. They didn't stay too long and moved on as silently as they arrived. I'm glad they're gone, as masses like these tend to leave a bit of themselves behind (no pun intended) if you know what I mean.

Storm #2 is starting now...

Gracie Under the Knife

Here's Gracie sporting her new look - the just fixed and declawed look. One week ago today was her big day and she did just fine. She is still on the mend and almost back to her old self. What do you think of her fancy Dolce and Gabbana neckwear? She needs to wear this to prevent her from getting at and messing with her incision.

Growing up I don't recall any of our puddy cats having to sport such a thing following their procedures. As a matter of fact, back in the day our felines had to walk to the vet to have their procedures performed and then back home afterwards. This was always an uphill walk both ways and usually in the snow. Cats these days, geesh!

Anyway, I digress. If we can just get her to stop pooping on the floor (right in front of her liter box), which is something new she just started following her procedures. Maybe she's trying to tell us that she didn't enjoy the process and misses her front claws? Perhaps, another surgery is in order to address this problem - capesch...

In the absence of a good ole fashion bird feeder this winter I hung a suet feeder out. Certainly not the same as a full blown feeder but it does the trick just the same and attracts the smaller birds, i.e. nuthatches, downy woodpeckers, titmouse's, and chickadees. However, as you can see from the first picture below it also attracted a grey squirrel this morning, that sumbitch. The ironic thing is you can see the trap in the background, which I baited and set a couple days ago, patiently waiting for a curious critter. I swear this dude flipped me the bird when I was taking this picture.

Ah, but then karma struck. The sumbitch was weak or perhaps just hungry since there were next to no acorns this fall and gave in to temptation - temptation called Peter Pan peanut butter :-)

You can see the sumbitch waiting extradition in the above picture...

Mr. Millipede

This here is a millipede, perhaps of the class Diploda. Gracie (our kitten), already earning her keep, found this dude crawling on the living room rug just the other day. We're guessing it hitched a ride in the house on one of the house plants that reside our doors during the summer months.

Millipedes have two pairs of legs per segment. Centipedes have only one pair of legs per segment - similar jut different.

Here's Your Sign

We're at the tail end of a major ice storm here in New England with flood warnings and wind advisories in effect. We've received upwards of 3" rain already with 2" more predicted to fall in the next couple of hours and many towns in New Hampshire are without power. The Fox25Boston morning news is covering this to death as with any 'breaking news' story.
So I'm sitting here drinking my morning coffee and watching the storm coverage. The two lead anchors are doing a phone interview with a National Grid spokes person about the power loss and the progress on the repairs currently underway.
One of the newscasters asked the following question, "what advice do you have for the people who are sitting at home in the dark without power right now?"
In the words of Bill Engvall - "Here's your sign"!
**Breaking news - This just announced - Governor Duval Patrick just declared a state of emergency for the entire state of Massachusetts!

Good vs Bad

Here is a picture of the seal on a gallon of Lactaid milk. This is an excellent seal to guarantee freshness, however, this is also an extremely difficult seal to open and remove. They provide a little tab on the seal itself which is supposed to aide in it's removal but don't believe it. It's equally as difficult to try and get a hold of the tab as it is to remove the seal all together.

Here is a seal on the a bottle of Hazelnut Nestle Coffee-Mate. It too is an excellent seal to guarantee freshness, however, this seal is extremely easy to open and remove - it has a handy pull tab.

I sent an email to Lactaid customer service to express my displeasure and concern with their seal. In an effort to provide a compelling example of just how difficult their seals are to remove I explained that I am a strapping young man in excellent physical shape and in tip-top condition and work with my hands all day and here I am having difficulties removing a simple seal. Now imagine how an older person might struggle, perhaps one with arthritis, and how difficult it might be for them to open. I closed with asking how many customers they felt they've lost because of the difficulty in removing this seal.

Much to my surprised I received a very nice email in response thanking me for bringing this concern to their attention. They stressed how this seal ensures freshness and that they would keep my concerns in mind moving forward. I was also tickled when I received a second letter via the US mail again thanking me for my feedback along with three coupons each for a free half gallon of Lactaid milk, booya!

One of the companies was thinking beyond freshness...

Northwest Territory

Northwest Territory - Size 2XL

OK, even though I am leery of the feedback I might receive, especially after some of the narrow minded comments recently received on an earlier post from some dimwit, I still feel the need to reach out to you all for your thoughts on my yard jacket, pictured above. Bear in mind that I love this jacket and have had it for years now; I like the colors for starters, it's super comfortable, light-weight but yet warm and worn to it's ideal look and feel.

Some folks who shall remain nameless have had some negative comments to say about this gem, imagine? So it got me thinking and reflecting on the ole saying, "the apple doesn't fall too far from the tree". You see me daddyO has a pair of yard jeans that just might contain more electrical tape than denim - the tape used to "sew" the holes. I find myself giving him a hard time about this new jean look and style he sports, which technically is hypocritical given the condition of my yard jacket, would you agree? Do you see the dilemma here, I'm torn (no pun intended)?! After all it wouldn't be fair of me to 'encourage' that me daddyO toss out his favorite jeans and than have me parading around in this gem, would it? What's one to do? Did I mention that this is a 2XL Northwest Territory jacket?!?! Wink wink...

New Wine Just for Seniors

I heard this though the grapevine and thought I'd pass it along -

California vintners in the Napa Valley area, which primarily produce Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio wines, have developed a new hybrid grape that acts as an anti-diuretic. It is expected to reduce the number of trips older people have to make to the bathroom during the night.

The new wine will be marketed as ….

The Handle Puller

There are always those purchases you make spur of the moment for items that you really don't need or that you'll seldom use and then there are the purchases you make for a certain item that, more than likely, you'll use once or maybe twice. However, in many cases these are invaluable, time saving, stress reducing and curse reducing items to have at your disposal.
I purchased one of these items for which I speak Friday night - a handle puller. The original plan was to buy it, open the package oh so carefully, use it and then return it for a full refund but I can't bring myself to return it - it's a keeper. A ten dollar investment with a better return than the stock market these days...
You see I attempted several times to remove the handle to my shower/tub, which is a key step in the process of replacing the worn rubber washers that were causing leakage and drippage. After all I'm on board with the whole "going green" thing aren't you so wasting water is bad and costly?! The handle simply would NOT come off regardless of what I tried - it just refused, wouldn't do it, wouldn't budge. Ah, but this stalemate came to an immediate and quick end once The Handle Puller was introduced - in a mere 15 seconds the handle was removed! With this road block taken care of I was able to complete the task of removing the handle guts and replacing the worn washers and wallah no more leaky leaky drippy drippy!
The Handle Puller will not be returned to the store but rather will remain with us in the unlikely event I need to remove another stubborn handle. It will be safely stored in my plumbing toolbox or better yet proudly hung on my shop peg board for all who pass by to see.

Schlumbergera truncatus

Here's an beautiful picture of our blooming Christmas cactus. She peaked a little to soon, so we're thinking of now referring to her as our Thanksgiving cactus, which may actually be what she is. In any event she was perdy!

Judge's Misconduct Results in Man's Death

Here's a tragic story that I wanted to pass along with the hope of raising awareness to just how old and antiquated and in many, many cases simply unfair (to the father) custody (divorce) cases are. There NEEDS to be a better process and solution for maintaining equal parental rights, as well as time each parent has with their children - NO one parent (in most cases) should have the majority of time with the kids over the other, NONE!

Fulton Superior Court Judge Bensonnetta Tipton Lane ’s
Pre-Thanksgiving Ruling Results In Father’s Suicide

(Atlanta , Georgia December 3, 2008)
On Sunday, November 30th, following a three-year divorce and custody battle played out in a Fulton County Superior Court, Alpharetta, Georgia resident Gregory Eisenhauer committed suicide after he received a ruling from family court judge Bensonnetta Tipton Lane one day before Thanksgiving essentially stripping Eisenhauer of any decision-making authority for his three young children.

The case of Gregory Eisenhauer v. Anne Marie R. Eisenhauer was filed in February 2006. When Eisenhauer informed his wife of his plans to file divorce litigation, Anne Marie Eisenhauer filed ex parte charges against her husband for family violence and had him removed from the home, beginning the long and tedious road facing many parents who are victimized by their spouses and subjected to Parent Alienation Syndrome, or P.A.S. After being removed from his home, Eisenhauer's contact with his children was substantially reduced. Though Eisenhauer suffered diminishing relationships with his children, he faithfully pursued an amicable resolution through litigation before Judge Lane . Despite his efforts, Judge Lane taxed Eisenhauer with the substantial costs of litigation and incredulous hurdles to satisfy the court’s examination of his qualification to serve as the children's father. Only one day before the Thanksgiving holiday, Judge Lane essentially ultimately stripped Eisenhauer of his role as the father of his children. Sadly, Eisenhauer committed suicide days later.

The least seasoned human resource managers are taught to never terminate an employee’s employment during the holidays, such as Thanksgiving or Christmas, or on an individual’s birthday. While Judge Lane ’s authority as a superior court judge is not in question, her inconsiderate and unconscionable misconduct by issuing a ruling disassembling a family the day before Thanksgiving is. Despite her 22 years of judicial service, serving as a Fulton County Superior Court judge for 13 of those years, Judge Lane's conduct was, at most, wanton and intentional, or in the very least, an example of extremely poor judgment. Judge Lane’s misconduct undoubtedly contributed to the stress Eisenhauer faced while watching his family be torn apart by an unjust judicial system.

Mr. Eisenhauer was an educated man and seasoned business professional, employed in the pharmaceutical industry and rising to the level of Chief Financial Officer. His three small children have now lost a father due to the miscarriage of justice suffered behind the closed doors of Georgia ’s family courts. Judicial and Child Welfare Reform activists, many of whom have suffered similar miscarriages of justice in Georgian courtrooms, understood Eisenhauer's plight and offered him their support.

A memorial protest rally in tribute to Gregory Eisehhauer has been organized by a group of Judicial and Child Welfare Reform activists to raise public awareness concerning tragedies, such as Eisenhauer's death, and the unbalanced judicial system many parents have or will face in divorce and custody disputes.

Tis the Season

Q: My Christmas cactus has tons of buds, but they fall off before they bloom. How can I prevent this?

A: If the buds drop, the temperature is probably too high or the humidity is too low. Don't let the temperature go above 65 degrees F during the day and 60 degrees F at night.

I Like Beavers

LONDON (AFP) – Four families of beavers have arrived in Britain for a landmark project which will see them introduced into the wild here for the first time in over 400 years, experts said Friday.
The wild beavers were captured in the Telemark region of Norway and brought to London, where they arrived Thursday and will spend six months in quarantine.
The animals will then be released in Argyll, western Scotland, during the first half of next year. Experts say they hope the beavers will help create new habits for wetland wildlife in the area by building dams.
"Beavers are native to Britain but were hunted to extinction over 400 years ago," said Simon Jones, project manager for the Scottish Beaver Trial, which is coordinating the animals' reintroduction.
"We are excited to get the trial under way and really see what benefits beavers can bring to Scotland."

Doggie Bag Surprise

Got home from work the other evening and had the munchies and couldn't wait for dinner, so I pillaged the fridge and came across JoAnne's doggie bag. Although, I initially had some apprehension about eating her leftovers that quickly passed and I basically inhaled them. My craving now satisfied and tummy at bay for a little while, I started feeling guilty, so I did the only thing I could think of...I left her a note!

Dam Creeping Charlie

Q: Our lawn is being run over by ground ivy. How can we get rid of it?

A: Ground ivy, also called creeping charlie, is a perennial broadleaf weed that lights up the horticulture hotlines all over the country in the spring. Interesting enough, the best time to apply a control for it is when you apply your fall lawn fertilizer. Look for a weed-and-feed product that contains prodiamine. The herbicide will prevent the ground ivy seeds from sprouting, and it will kill any tiny plants that have already started growing. Consider another possibility - hand-pulling. Ground ivy is completely edible and was one of the "potherbs" harvested in early spring when little else was available. It contains Vitamin C.

Interestingly enough me padre and I were just discussing this annoying plant, which is growing out of control in his yard, and how we might remove it. We first had to identify what we were dealing with and that we did, I think. However, I don't know if I have me padre 100% convinced but perhaps come Spring when it begins flowering he'll be sold. I also hope he'll begin the process of hand-pulling this sucker outta the ground.

This invasive lawn weed (Glechoma hederacea) of the mint family is sometimes referred to as: creeping Charlie or creeping Charley, gill-over-the-ground, string-of-nickels, chain-of-coins, field balm, cat's foot, and run-away-Robin.

Adorondack Chairs

Here is a picture of the recent additions to the ole homestead.

These two beauties are Adirondack chairs, which are typically very expensive when purchased brandy new. However, this pair didn't cost me a thing! Believe it or not these chairs were sitting curbside and screaming take us, take us - so I did!

There are a couple pieces of wood that need to be replaced, some screws tightened and the green staining needs to be killed but for the most part they're in great condition and well worth what they cost me.

They're very comfortable to sit in and the other nicety is that the arm rests are nice and wide, which is just perfect for resting my beers on without needing to be concern of them falling or slipping off - booyah!

Toof, Toofs, Toofies II

Well, it's official, Emilie now looks like a typical 6 year old - NO top two front teeth!

She lost one about a week ago and the other this morning.

The second tooth was just hanging by a root last night and was the funniest looking thing. Hermey the Misfit Elf (JoAnne), from the Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (TV special) fame, attempted to pull the tooth last night from an unsuspecting Emilie. Can I just tell you that this was NOT a good idea - you may have been able to hear the blood curdling scream and subsequent crying (and not mine).

It's actually a good thing it didn't come out last night, as the "tooth fairy" didn't have any singles on hand, wink wink. Tonight though, tonight she will come will plenty of singles, just like a groom-to-be's bachelor party...

A Parasitoid

Ophion Wasp

Another glass crawling insect of ours. The weather warmed up quite a bit this past Saturday and as a result there were a number of insects out and about; this critter was just one of them. I like the fact that these pests are so accommodating and make themselves available for such cool close up photos.

I believe this is an Ophion Wasp of the Ichneumonidae family. Ichneumon wasps are important parasitoids of other insects - insects that live in or on, and eventually kill, a larger host insect. Common hosts are beetles, moths and butterflies.

M'm! M'm! Yuck!

"Beef. It's what's for dinner". However, that was NOT the case for my dad last night. He chose to be creative and whipped up the following meal or rather goulash. After all, he has honed his skills and is now a master of the can opener...
  • 1 can Corn
  • 1 can Beets
  • 1 can Lima Beans
  • Open and mix all three together
  • Heat
  • Eat

Below are few fast food advertising slogans - all of which this concoction was NOT.
  • Subway - Eat fresh
  • Taco Bell - Think Outside the Bun
  • McDonald's - I'm lovin' it.
  • Wendy's - Do what tastes right.
There was this one time, as a youte, that I was forcefully encouraged to eat a beet at the diner table and let's just say that the outcome was not pretty, purple but still not pretty.

Also worth mentioning, since it ties in with the theme, is the fact that President-elect Barack Obama shuns beets.

Frost vs Freeze

Q: What is the difference between a frost and a hard freeze?

A: A frost refers to the conditions that allow a layer of ice crystals to form when water vapor condenses and freezes without first becoming dew. A hard freeze is a period of at least four consecutive hours of air temperatures that are below 25 degrees F. Many plants can survive a brief frost, but very few can survive a hard freeze.

Yellow Underwing caterpillars

Raking the grass this weekend, we can across these crawly critters - yellow underwing caterpillars or otherwise known as the "cutworm". At first I would simply step on them as I'd dislodge them, kinda like putting out a cigarette butt but this was messy and I soon realized there were simply too many of them. Instead, I began collecting them and feeding them to the chickens who devoured them as quickly as I offered them up.

These pests develop between September and April above ground feeding on the stems and leaves of grasses and other plants, sometimes grazing them off at ground level. When disturbed it adopts a 'c'-shape, as you can see in the picture above, and can get up to 2" long.

Sunday, November 09, 2008


So, we're sitting at the table last night eating diner, JoAnne and I, when out of the blue she says, "shit, we didn't do Emilie's CCD* homework again tonight!".

Do you see the irony here?

* The abbreviation CCD stands for Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. CCD is the basic teachings of the Catholic church. These classes are taught to school age children to learn the basic roots of their faith.

People Suck

This just it, and hopefully it's not a surprise to you all, people suck!

Yup they do and I know that you know!

I simply do not and can not understand people these days; almost all lack basic common courtesy. Perhaps it's not that they lack it but more that they simply do NOT use it any longer. Let's not overlook how rude these people are too.

Here are some examples of what I'm talking about. I experienced these gems this past week alone -
  1. The 2 female co-workers who decided to have their meeting smack dab in the middle of the main isle way with complete disregard for everyone else who was trying to get past them. You'd think common sense and common courtesy would kick in and the heffalumps would move out of the way but noooooo.

  2. The dip-shit driving the Chevy mini van on the highway at 70+ mph, while talking on her cellphone and driving up my ass, who then failed/refused to use her directionals as she jerked into the passing lane and then back in front of me. She kept flapping her gums into the phone the entire time, not missing a breath.

  3. The person who failed to pull his chair in so co-workers could pass to take their seats. This was not because he was unaware of us trying to pass but more because he is a lazy, ignorant dick.

  4. Yet another co-worker who was working on his laptop and click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, click, clicking his mouse, as if sitting alone in his living room, as the entire conference room was quietly trying to listen to the presentation being given. He was completely oblivious too, just how ignorant can someone be?

I could go on and on and on; I have endless examples. The moral of the story is PEOPLE SUCK - that's all and have a nice day.

A Long-Horned Grasshopper

The family Tettigoniidae known in American English as katydids and in British English as bush-crickets, contains more than 6,400 species. They are also known as long-horned grasshoppers, although they are more closely related to crickets than to grasshoppers.

The katydid is named for its mating call, "Katydid! Katydidn't!''

This little lady was making her way across a window of ours, which is over top of the garage, so she was up there. I'm not sure how she was holding on and not falling, after all she's walking across glass. Also, you may have noticed that she's missing one of her hind legs. These critters are harmless and quite noisy during mating season but a calming, relaxing noisy. Oh and the chickens love em too...

What are 13 & 25?

These are the number of times that I cut our lawn, and my dad's lawn over the course of this past grass cutting season -
  • 13 - my dad's lawn
  • 25 - our lawn
We blitzed my dad's lawn this past Saturday; cutting it, as well as picking up ALL the leaves. I may cut it one last time in a week or two, more for picking up the remainder of the leaves than actually cutting grass, as it's no longer growing now that we've had a couple hard frosts.

Our lawn will definitely get another cutting before the mower is put away for the winter. Again, more for picking up rogue leaves than actually cutting grass.

Boxelder Bugs, Boisea trivittatus

Here is a single Boxelder bug sitting on the flower of a sedium.

Here is a close up of a bunch of juvenile Boxelder bugs climbing all over a daylily.

And here they are dotting the back of our house.

These dudes are harmless and typically not noticed during the summer but come fall, August and September fahgetaboutit, they come out of the woodwork in search of a warm place to winter over. In our case they mass on the West and South side of house, especially on the warmer days. They make their way into every nook and cranny - working their way between the storm windows and storm doors and often time hitching rides on us as we come and go to get inside the house. Although the above picture shows these nuisances dotting the house it does not do justice to just how many there are and how they come together.

This has been taking place each fall since we moved into our house, so we've come to expect it and also accept it as an indication that fall has arrived here in New England and that winter is right around the corner.

Rataining Wall Repair 101

Well, we finally resolved our retaining wall problem, hooray! This wall has been worrying us for several years now with the fear of it falling and has only been getting worse with each passing year - the New England winters have been taking it's toll. However, the estimates we received to have the wall fixed by professional masons were simply too expensive.

Sooooo, we decided to fix it on our own, well, my neighbor and I - and we're not even Italian go figure. We took last Friday (10/24) off of work (our real jobs) and had at it. We dug out the dirt behind the bad area, used the plow (pictured) and a Ford F350 to push and straighten the wall, secured it as best we could then back filled with 1 yard of 3/4 crushed stone. We topped off it all off with some of the dirt we removed and filled the gaps in front with smaller stones - TA DA!!

It certainly isn't the prettiest wall I've seen but it'll do for now and from a safety concern we can sleep easier now.

Havaheart vs Blue Barrel

Here are a couple pictures of the critters that we've trapped and relocated recently. These dudes were fortunate to be caught on a work day and therefore relocated on my drive to work. Weekend captures aren't so lucky, even though gas prices have fallen, and all I will say is "blue barrel"...

Zero to 200 in Six Seconds

Bob was in trouble. He forgot his wedding anniversary. His wife was really pissed.
She told him “Tomorrow morning, I expect to find a gift in the driveway that goes from 0 to 200 in 6 seconds AND IT BETTER BE THERE !!”
The next morning he got up early and left for work. When his wife woke up, she looked out the window and sure enough there was a box gift-wrapped in the middle of the driveway.
Confused, the wife put on her robe and ran out to the driveway, brought the box back in the house.
She opened it and found a brand new bathroom scale.
Bob has been missing since Friday.
