  1. With it being so dry so soon, I think we are in for another crappy year for gardens and growing anything in general.

    Full examination and all of it made public. I wouldn't trust the foxes to tell us everything is all fine in the henhouse.

    I'm not too optimistic. They have that ARP money burning a hole in their pocket, and history is proven they love to throw good money after bad. They can't help themselves when it comes to this place. I don't mean to sound so pessimistic, but I'm sick and tired of this place failing over and over and over.

    Well great, back to square one with a giant building sitting empty in the middle of downtown.
  5. Turns out 125 reed tubes isn’t a whole lot. Didn’t even fill one box, so I improvised and added natural materials: Im gonna hit Hobby Lobby and see if they have something similar, perhaps made of cardboard and cheaper.
  6. You and I are gonna get along well. I loved it, and have long said it was bad marketing that doomed it. And, it should have been John Carter of Mars. It would have gotten more attention.
  7. Fortunately I haven't planted a lot that I can't replace, but I hate to spend yet more money doing so. I still have about a bed and a half completely unplanted still.
  8. Yeah I was on the fence about if it was necessary or not. Glad I did, there was definitely a frost here last night.
  9. I absolutely loved this show in the 80's, but of course didn't quite get the full implications of it until I grew up. The two miniseries were good, although the whole half-breed "star child" plot was stupid. It got even more stupid with the weekly series. I've read the books, including the one based on the screenplay more as Johnson intended. There was also a sequel he wrote that wasn't too shabby either. The 2009 reboot had such potential, but they dropped the ball on it. This article was really interesting, especially as a fan. I had no idea that the Robin we saw on screen wasn't the original actress they intended.
  10. Yeah some kind of status update wouldn’t be a bad thing at all. I know we’d post it here for sure.
  11. Well for some of us, it was the closest thing we had to cartoons on the other six days of the week. And even then, only when we were at Monkey Run Rd where WSKG came in!
  12. I remember them all, and fondly I might add. This reminds me of an idea I had for another topic, though not sure it’ll work. From Sesame Street:
  13. I’d love to see another John Carter movie, but have a better chance of going to Mars myself!! 😄
  14. A really excellent bakery on Water St. comes to mind.
  15. I have to agree with you, I’d much rather we had more small, locally owned and independent radio stations. While I do in fact enjoy the Bigfoot Country Legends, it’s true that 96.1, 99.5 and even 102.9 are all too similar in format ( at least until 10am when 102.9 turns more classic, though not enough for my tastes ). And I’m pretty sure I’ve heard the same Scott and Allie conversation on more than one station here and there. Now that I think of it, there’s a couple stations with “morning zoo” formats that sound the same as well. There’s Big D & Bubba, Free Beer & Hot Wings ( what stupid names for DJs ) and a third show Dave and Mahoney. All three of them sound so formulaic it isn’t funny. I also still listen to Wiggle 100 out of Troy, perhaps the last small independent station left. Hell, they’re still using bumper, I think they’re called, from more than 30 years ago. ( Which for the record I like )

    If anyone has ever wanted to have an ice cream stand, Bob's is now for sale.
  17. I went and got a bunch of topsoil to add to the beds, then started planting. I got Yukon gold and a red variety put in as well as some squash, zucchini, and some pumpkins. I put a couple pepper plants in as well as a single tomato plant. And I still have room for more like corn, beans and cukes, which I'll plant in the next couple days. I'm gonna put some chicken wire up on the road facing side of our shed and then plant morning glories there. The ground is pretty rough, so I'll likely get more topsoil before planting them. Then if they want to grow there year after year, they can. I have a feeling we're in for another dry year, but there's no optimism like a gardner has, so we'll just hope for the best.
  18. If you like world music or are just tired of listening to what we have on the air locally, then the Radio Garden app may be something you're interested in. A friend told me about it, and it's free, so I downloaded it. It's amazing. Essentially, anywhere in the world where a radio station is live-streamed, you can listen to it with this app. Stattions available are indicated by a green dot. It's funny to hear American rock and other genres played all across the globe, but when you get to some places, like Russia and South America especially, you get a more diverse sound. Sometimes it's just interesting to hear the "local" ads. It's also nice to know that there's places where they have actual local DJs still, not just simulcast across multiple stations. Anyway, check it out. I think there's in app ads, but I haven't found anything too annoying yet.
  19. I don’t understand the need for all the live action remakes to begin with, other than they already own the rights and want to cash in again. There’s new stories being told all the time, yet this is what we’re given. This and Fast and the Furious 10. Although I have to admit, The Jungle Book live action remake was pretty good.
  20. Just use the drill bit you have. The house we have that they're using is only 4-5" deep. Hell, the one I made last year and gets used is probably not even that deep.
  21. I found another old birdhouse so I’ll be making two, and then that’s enough for this year.
  22. As much as I am a fan of Joe Lamp’l ( which seems like a weird thing to say when I think of it ) he can stick that whole “make your own tubes” where the sun don’t shine. My loving wife and I tore into a grocery bag, and got about this far: Before even I thought, “This is for the birds,” and quit. I ordered the little tubes from Amazon here.
