Kinda neat.

If it were closer to Christmas time and my kids were still little, I could have told my kids it was Santa, his sleigh and his reindeers out for a test run.
Yeah that would have been a great story for kids!

OMG, those hairs are the WORST! They hurt like nothing else! And I've also always been mystified how they get into that thick skin. It's a dobermystery for sure.

What variety of lavender, might I ask? I've been trying to get lavender to grow here (Zone 4) and I always lose it the first or second winter. I can keep it a full year if I bury it in hay in a chickenwire cage, but by the second winter, it always croaks. I like to use lavender in my soaps sometimes, but I don't want to use store-bought if I don't have to. So, if you know what specific type of lavender you have, please tell me? Pretty please? With sugar on top?

Wait, I just did a search for cold hardy lavender and besides the Munstead (which I have reliably killed three times in a row) there's now something called "Phenomenal" which is a hybrid and *supposedly* hardy even down to Zone 3, with winter protection. I might see if I can find some of that. From what I read, it grows taller and has longer flower spikes as well. But seriously, I live in South Dakota, so it might be some time before the nurseries here even hear about it, much less stock it. Well, I'll check.

What the heck are those for? 60 all at one time? Man, sometimes I really miss the 60s.

On a completely DIFFERENT note, I just heard some clunking behind me in the living room and turned around to see the newest little baby kitten (I'm sure he barely weighs a pound yet) on the end table, playing with his reflection in the brass lamp. He thinks there's another kitten in there! I guess he got bored, he couldn't get the other kitten to come out of the lamp, so he knocked over the box of tissues and jumped off the table.

Correction - I just weighed him (I got curious) and he weighs 23 ounces, so he's almost a pound and a half! He's finally putting on some weight, yay!

Ooh! La! La!

Do you like creased Wranglers, Lannie? I do, but I will ogle non-creased ones!



While we are on the subject, boxers or briefs?

We've actually thought about that because we get deer back there in the woods and they're hard to see sometime with that rear fence but, it was put up by the HOA, not us, so I'm not sure if we could take it down or not. I think it was some kind of agreement they struck with the people that own that property behind us, from what I hear they were really upset about a subdivision being built here.

No pity from Mrs. TN, she just shook her head and gave me that "I told you so" look But hey, that doesn't mean I can't take a pic or two of Mocha in the snow

So Scott ate the voodoo soup yesterday when I was away at work.
He was alive this morning !!!!! Yeah !!!!!!
He read Lannie's post about the benefits of boner soup and that she was making the same type of soup herself......so he decided to indulge in the voodoo soup and give it a go.......he liked it.

Lannie, re starlink satellites:

"Starlink is a satellite constellation being constructed by American company SpaceX to provide satellite Internet access. The constellation will consist of thousands of mass-produced small satellites, working in combination with ground transceivers."

This was just their second launch of 60 and they are already the largest commercial telecommunications satellite constellation in orbit.

"SpaceX estimates it needs at least six Starlink launches, presumably of 60 satellites each, to have a sufficient number to start offering internet access at high latitudes, such as Canada and the Northern United States. After 24 launches, SpaceX projects reaching global coverage — a milestone anticipated in 2020." SpaceNews

Is that something you guys will benefit from, you think??

What variety of lavender, might I ask? I've been trying to get lavender to grow here (Zone 4) and I always lose it the first or second winter. I can keep it a full year if I bury it in hay in a chickenwire cage, but by the second winter, it always croaks. I like to use lavender in my soaps sometimes, but I don't want to use store-bought if I don't have to. So, if you know what specific type of lavender you have, please tell me? Pretty please? With sugar on top?

Wait, I just did a search for cold hardy lavender and besides the Munstead (which I have reliably killed three times in a row) there's now something called "Phenomenal" which is a hybrid and *supposedly* hardy even down to Zone 3, with winter protection. I might see if I can find some of that. From what I read, it grows taller and has longer flower spikes as well. But seriously, I live in South Dakota, so it might be some time before the nurseries here even hear about it, much less stock it. Well, I'll check.
This is all I can find for Colorado--they all seem to only go down to zone 5 and we're right between 5 and 4. So I guess they're borderline for us, but judging from how many I see, they seem to do well.

Two types of lavenders grow well in Colorado. The first is Lavandula angustifolia or English lavender. It is hardy to Zone 5 and often blooms twice in one season. There are hundreds of varieties of English lavender available depending on the color and size of plant desired. The second is a hybrid of L. angustifolia and L. latifolia. It is commonly referred to as a lavandin. Lavandins are generally larger plants that bloom only once later in the summer and produce sterile seed. The Lavandins produce larger quantities of essential oil but not as high quality as the English lavenders. Both types of lavenders have a place in landscapes and as a cash crop.

Hardy lavender varieties thrive in Colorado’s USDA Hardiness Zones 5 through 7. Note that French and Spanish lavenders are not cold hardy in Colorado but can be used as annuals in containers and outdoor beds.
