  1. She was caught relatively early. So how do some of these people rack up $5,000 or $10,000 before they nail them?
  2. Nothing needs to be on the person to accidentally or intentionally set their hair on fire. A long time ago a friend was flicking a lighter near my head and caught mr hair on fire. No cologne, perfume, hairspray, gel, mousse, etc was involved.
  3. Our local paper is HORRIBLE with their spelling and grammatical errors. I cringe every day when I am reading it. Spelling and grammar check on a computer does not mean it will be error free. In one article they couldn't decide if the subject was a he or she. They need a proof reader in the worst way.
  4. I am a cat owner and lover. I agree with you 100%. My babies don't run free or go outside at all. I feel the same about watch for children signs. I am always watching, but parents should be adequately supervising their children when they are outdoors.
  5. I think Elvira is my favorite.
  6. Guess we have to change our species to hupeople...can't have it as hu"man"s anymore. Changing names of common items items is ridiculous. "Man" derived from human by taking the hu off. Wo in front of man derived from the old English word wifmon meaning wife of man. Basically who the f cares. Gender equality is not about words, but actions.
  7. What is the best way to deal with whatever it is that has decided my flower bed is its dining room table? I had a flower bed FULL of lilies, they were gorgeous and I was closing in on having about 80 of them. Something is eating the bulbs and I'm not especially happy about that. It's hard enough that someone is cutting my flowers (pretty easy to tell they were cut off). I have no idea what it is that is eating them.
  8. Supper tonight...was craving cheesy goodness
  9. The weather called for chicken and dumplings with some italian bread on the side.
  10. My cat has a knot like that on one of his joints, but it didn't appear suddenly like your pooch's did My cat's was caused when his leg was broken by the abusive twits that had him before we stole him. It didn't heal properly. I hope that it's nothing serious and he's up and about on it soon.
  11. I cut the living daylights out of that thing. I'm not real thrilled with things that creep, crawl, and choke other things. Along with that there was morning glory that took me three years to get rid of. I can live with these things, I'll just have to mindful to keep them trimmed and cut back to only where I want them. I think I'll look into the low growing evergreens for the shady side. Once I dig up these lilies this fall to separate them, what do I do with the extra that is going to come out of them? I'll gladly part with them to anyone that wants them, if I'm lucky enough they will continue to do as well as they have. I wasn't expecting 60 plants from 6 in 3 years.
  12. From what I can count, in the past 3 years I went from the 6 original lily plants I put in, to 60 or so
  13. a perennial would work best, I'm afraid of digging up the bulbs already planted there as it is. The lilies are absolutely beautiful, I'm going to try to get my other laptop started up so I can get those pictures. I've been working on it today on and off. One of the lilies came up between the bricks. I have tulips planted on the one side of the porch, and nothing planted on the side that is almost all shade because I don't know what would do well there. I have some crocus bulbs I wanted to plant but not sure the best location in all of this for them.
  14. The lilies are asiatic lilies. The bushes I was trying to get something that wouldn't grow any higher than 18 inches to 2 feet at the most. It's a really small area in between the front porch and sidewalk. It used to be covered in morning glory. It took me 3 years to finally get rid of that completely. I have to add some more soil to it, especially after getting rid of all the dead leaves and cutting off about half the plants that were there and taking care of the weeds. This is just the front part, the sides are similar, but they are ground level and not built up at all.
  15. First, my lilies. I had bought 6 orange lilies a few years ago and planted them. The second year they were no longer orange and I've had blood red lilies every year. Not only do I have blood red lilies, but they've multiplied faster than bunny rabbits. I truly love them, but is there any way to control where they grow and how they multiply? I need something else to plant in the flower beds with them also and I need something that hopefully prefers shade and isn't orange or yellow. One side and the front pretty much get full sun and my tulips and lilies thrive there, but the one side is almost in shade all of the time. I also have 3 bushes in the front flower beds that I took the shears to today and butchered half them off as they were choking the lilies and going out of control. They are hardy, easy to deal with, don't mind the butchering, but they are royal pain. I don't kill plants that go in the ground, but I do have a tendency where they go out of control, haywire, and take on lives of their own. I need something that requires little care, beyond a simple snip and trim, that won't breed like a cache of bunny rabbits.
