    Thank you for the kind words! Yeah, the campus is beautiful. I can't wait to see how it looks in the winter months (also considering that we do a tiny bit better in La Ninas here, so any bit helps :p) 

    Yo, congrats! Managed to snag this pic on my porch the day after I moved my daughter into JMU a few years ago.

    Funny thing is, I never leave that door open. Still not sure how that ‘fly got in. Made me cry, lol.

    Best of luck, have a great time!

    I didn't blow through washer fluid like most others, but I'm STILL finding piles of exoskeletons in less-traveled parts of the yard. Just uncovered a few more under lesser used patio chairs yesterday. Hard to believe it's been about three months since they started to wind down.  :/

    Heh. I still have a few in spots. Interesting how they differ in size when compared to the annuals.

    And I really should remove the dead one from my porch, but p sure s/he is not bothering anyone at the moment.

    I have a neighbor that hasn't mowed in weeks.  If I could get a spinny thing scour that ground to dirt and only that yard it would be swell.

    Extreme lawn-mowing!

    But yeah...my one neighbor tends to mow once every 5-6 weeks. They're lovely people, but it's infuriating. The folks that used to live there kept their place immaculate, but these folks...don't.

    My bad, guys. I’ll get on that.


    It’s cloudy out.

    Nothing better than blue plate meatloaf with ketchup glaze

    Thank goodness I skipped your dinner invite tonight.

    Ketchup glaze? Those words shouldn’t go together, my friend. I want to cry.

    The 200% markup for bottom rail booze makes me go for the 48oz Miller Lite for $4

    Drink better shìt, ya moron. Gotta make the margins.

    Not that there is anything wrong with ML.

    Now ketchup on the other hand…

    3pm is the best. You get the tail end of lunch menu before dinner menu. And then happy hour apps. You can’t lose!!

    And those of us in the industry seriously thank you for camping at our tables and your 15% tip. Pretax. And minus bev service. Bless your soul.

    We used to wait till after December 13th to put up Christmas stuff. The older Miss J's birthday is that day and right after she was born I told Mr. J that I did not want her birthday and Christmas to be lumped together. She has since decided that she likes putting stuff up early and Dec 1st is generally the time frame. 

    Youngest has a 12/11 bd. Riding the same boat. :)

    Someone has to beat @H2O and bring down his ego :P

    He's retired now, gl! Has nothing better to do than watch his phone for the best matchups.

    Hell, he even invited me over for dinner tonight. To eat at 3 pm. Old people. :(

    Pretty scary, but the Halloween candy displays are up in the Ellicott  City Giant.

    A few weeks ago, I started tracking a Halloween decoration I couldn’t procure last year. Even after multiple attempts by myself and others in the DMV.

    Because, well, umm, everyone needs a decayed posable skeleton…

    They do that to have a uniform reporting network. It isn't much, 40 bucks including shipping I believe. 

    Bought one a couple years ago. Hella accurate. Very happy with it.

    11 yr old Sorento. Was fine the first 8 years but in the last 3 I’ve done:

    2 intake manifold runners($1100 ea), alternator($800), tires cause alignment goes to hell fast and eats up my wheels and now I had a transmission fluid temp sensor go off.

    Thanks for the link! I might have to get both your and H20's suggestions, you can never have enough.

    Check out S’well. As today is national hydration day, I can highly recommend. Great products and good company. :)

    Totally agree. So many bugs out there, and so many that I've either never seen before or don't see often. 

    This thing was crawling on a wall the other day and must have been 3-4 inches long. No idea what it is, but it looked like something that shouldn't be messed with. 


    Nice fishfly. :)

  13. Nice! I’m deliberately putting off yard work until I can gauge the emergence at my crib. Or so I’m telling my wife...

    (And per a few pages back, firebugs were late last year in my neck of the woods as well. Not a long season either. Butterflies too. :( )
