Just want to say it makes that LSU scentsy you sent us extra special. I think my sister took it from my bro, but that's OK...she went to LSU too, like all of us did.

He told me he was going to be at the game though. I bet he has no voice left.

That's all, folks. Won't talk LSU football again til next fall.

I'm still accepting congratulations.

And I've yet to hear from all of those early rising farm folks, so maybe we can talk a bit more. But I'll try not to bring it up too much.

I already congratulated you, right?

So, I get $25 GOOWSFC gift card?

That's like gold!

So how many gold pieces do I have stacked up right now?

Good morning - I am up - but not a farm person

Just a Mila person. Plus going into work a bit early today so I can leave a bit early Or maybe I wont go in too early.



Yay Tigers! Folks at work wont be too happy. A number of Clemson grads. But a few LSU fans. I don't have ESPN so didn't watch the game.
I watched the hi-lights again Burrow can throw the ball. I had thought we (Auburn) had done a good job against him - believe in the highlights commenter started to mention them. But looking at the stats, Joe still threw for 321 yards.

Congrats Mel!

Good morning AJ.
You are up early today must be taking care of business with your plants I suspect.
Planted azaleas at the north side of my house last spring.
They look bare...a few leaves .....some flowers on the end of sticks.
Guess they need some food.

Early to bed...
They like acidic soil. Feed them with a azalea type feed (sulfur) in the spring and trim them at that time.
We have already started heavy shippingmostly southern states. The weather is cooperating which is making it easy.

So, glad you are starting off with a good year !
Thinking you are going to break a sweat today.
Last night so nice to sit outside at dusk with zero bugs.
Hoss is obsessed with seeking llizards now.

Congrats, SP!...Your clever quote might be selected for the "Top (10) CT Oxymorons for 2020"


"Definition of oxymoron

: a combination of contradictory or incongruous words (such as cruel kindness) broadly : something (such as a concept) that is made up of contradictory or incongruous elements"


https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/oxymoron



...Geez....That definition itself needs a definition.....


Definition of incongruous

: lacking congruity: such as
a : not harmonious : incompatible incongruous colors
b : not conforming : disagreeing conduct incongruous with principle
c : inconsistent within itself an incongruous story



....and that didn't help much, either. Uhh...Mel, you didn't happen to work for Merriam-Webster before your retired?

Ewww, and speaking of fog, we were supposed to have "patchy fog" yesterday morning until 9:00 or 10:00 am, but it was socked in heavy all day and I could barely see the road from the house (it's about 50 yards). Everything is all coated with lace, so it would be pretty if the sun came out. Our high today is supposed to be 8, and they SAY some sunshine, but they said that yesterday, so who knows? Right now it's -5 and still dropping. I hate it, but it IS January, so I'd better just put on my Big Girl Panties and deal with it, eh?

And I lived on the backside of Delta park for years in a scruffy little development called Deltawood. One owner had four or five houses there (it was sold 4 times while I lived there in three different houses) and the last new owner priced the rent out of my range--and I moved to SE.

Everything around the northeast end has slowly filled up with developments and a lot of condo's.

ABTLH
I grew up in SE. First down by Woodstock and 70th(ish) then we moved up to Happy Valley (Mt. Scott) when I was about 6 years old, then my mom and dad decided to split and we moved back down to the flats. We lived in a rental house on 65th & Duke for a while, and it was a nice neighborhood then, but I've heard that in the intervening years since we left there, it became known as "Felony Flats" and the crime rate went through the roof. So sad... After that neighborhood, we moved out to 103rd and Holgate and that's where I finally left home (I was 16). I lived with my grandmother in North Portland for a couple of years, then got married and moved to the SW area. Beaverton and Tualatin mostly, then off to Redmond in Central Oregon in 1995, and then here to South Dakota in spring of 2004. My brother and sister say if I went back now (which I have NO desire to do!) I wouldn't recognize anything. I like it here, where everything stays the same. I don't like change, LOL!

I have a funny story about my first address (the first one I remember, anyway). My dad had a habit of making us learn our address and phone number, in case we ever got lost (my dad was smart). Anyway, I had just lost one of my front teeth, and it was almost Christmas. I was 4 or 5 I guess. So my dad calls from somewhere (work?) and says he's Santa Claus and he wants to make sure he has the right address to bring my Christmas presents. (He was always testing me...). So I said, "Thickthy-one-oh-nine Thouseasth Theventy-Third." Santa said, "What? I can't understand you." I repeated "Thickthy-one-oh-nine Thouseasth Theventy-Third." He couldn't resist teasing me a little bit more, saying he couldn't QUITE get the numbers I was trying to say, until I finally got so frustrated I started crying (I thought I wasn't going to get any presents!), when he finally relented. Fortunately, Santa found our house and I got my Breyer horse I'd been wishing for all year.

I cannot hardly stand it.
Holy cow, those kittens are all ears! I guess I've never seen a pic of that breed before. I would have had to name one of them Yoda. I know, I'm weird.

Hey, AJ, I have a plant question for you! Do you know anything about Diffenbachias? I have a couple that I've had since 1985 and I'm having trouble for some reason. It started out as a little $4.95 potted plant from K-Mart and when it got tall, I chopped it down and stuck the top in water until it rooted and potted it in another pot, and let the cut stem re-leaf and make a new plant. Basically that's been the story for the last 35 years, when they get too tall, chop them down, root in water and re-plant. But this time, my top, which has 4 or 5 small rootlets, is COMPLETELY limp and wilted. I put it in a pot with fresh, brand new potting soil, and it looks like hell. All the leaves are limp and hanging straight down. I also cut two sections of the stem and rooted them, and they're planted in the same pot (I'm looking for more density here). They look fine, but they don't have leaves yet. The potting soil is nice and moist, but I poured a cup or two of water in there around the base of the wilted top in case it wanted more water. No change, though. Oh, it's a big pot, 14" across and probably 18" or 20" deep. It took more than half of a large "Costco-sized" bag of potting soil to fill it.

Any ideas what I might be doing wrong? Or what I can do to perk it up? I've never had one do this before. A little wilting, yes, from the shock, but this thing is looking dead. It's still green, but looks lifeless.

Edit: I forgot to say, I have the stem tied to a stick to hold it upright, otherwise I'm sure it would be lying across the edge of the pot with the leaves on the floor.

Hoss and Spock must be Dobe brothers, from another mother....

Remember the story when Spock and I were awaiting our first Therapy Dog evaluation, when he spotted a pair of "galloping geckos" in the atrium?

Again last Dec, I had Spock at UIW college group therapy event where he met over (150) students in two hours. Spock, unlike Eva, actually gets lulled into a Dobe Nirvana trance-like state after being petted and scratched by dozens of admirers. I have to break this up frequently with some obedience or trick demos.

Well during this Dec. visit day he spotted a small critter on the nearby tree and went into his Dobe "Lizard Hunter-Killer" prey drive mode. The students thought it was cool and amusing, but I had him short leashed and brought him quickly back to his job at hand with a command and treat.

Note- Mr. Spocko will also do this if, God forbid, a fly gets into house, then he's on a mission to search and destroy (eat). That's why I installed a fly zapper in the laundry room....


Ten Doberman Rules
Poke Everything.
It's New? Bark At It.
Moves? Chase It.
Doesn't Move? Smell It.
Liquid? Spill and Dribble It.
Treat or Food? Wolf It Down.
Not Food? Chew It Slowly, Be Quiet & Hide From Human.
A Toy? Shred & Destroy It.
Stuffed? De-Stuff It.
Bites You Back? Wrestle It!

Lannie- You have a cutting that is rooting but still wilting.
It could be that its a large cutting and not enough roots to pump enough water to inflate the foliage.
It could be a infection at the base of the stem , generally at the soil line.
To help with the moisture to the foliage You can drape a light cloth (cheese cloth would be best) paper towel and mist the the cloth with water. You do not have to soak it just moisten it. This should help strengthen the cutting as the roots develop.

This may help in the future when you want to have a full pot...when you take that main cutting and as the shoots develop below the cut on the mother plant. You can let them grow to about 3-4'' cut and stick them 3 per in a pot (6'') It may take little more time but you will get a full pot.

On this thread?

Good Morning All!

And so the cycle begins.

And Beau made some silly comment about me being good for 12 months straight.

LMAO!

Leave the geckos alone, Spock!

I like lizards.

Eat all the flies and mosquitoes you want!
