No time right now...

But remind me to write the tale about nearly dying in the middle of the desert while ghost town hunting...

Tomatoes Coming Out of My Ears

We've got a crazy amount of tomatoes this year. I mean, typically we have a LOT. This year we've got double that many and 1000 more. We've canned tomatoes (48 quarts and counting), 12 quarts of spaghetti sauce, given away bushels and bushels and we're still overrun with 'em. It's crazy! If you're in Utah and need some tomatoes, let me know. I can hook ya up for free.

Local Outdoor Newsman Dies

The first quote at the Salt lake Tribune (http://www.sltrib.com) made me laugh out loud: "I know Doug is in heaven with all the animals he hunted," the fan wrote. Funny, that doesn't sound restful. If I were Doug Miller and this was true, I would be watching my back!!

Darn Speculation! Now Pluto is Demoted...

Pluto is no longer to be considered a planet in our solar system. What a horrible turn of events for this little picked-upon planet. Now it will only be known as an oft-forgotten Disney character. In other related news, last week, prior to the conference where the little orb was kicked out of the planet gang, rumors were floating around that they may determine it should be a 12 planet solar system. So, you know, I thought I'd get a jump on things and register "twelveplanets.net" and "twelveplanets.info". .com was taken, unfortunately...or maybe fortunately in this turn of events. So, screw domain purchases on speculation! By the way, if anyone wants either of those domains, I'll sell it to you CHEAP!

I Have Proof!

That's right, photographic proof that I was at the Vegas Bash at the end of July. Look at the photo here. You'll see me behind the winner at the dice tourney. Lucky dude! You can see the "official" BBWNetwork Bash photos here. By the way, I neglected to put week's Photo Selection up. I will do so upon my return home. I don't have the photo on my laptop, dangit, and the pix are 500 miles away. Bummer.

I think I'm onto something BIG here...

I was just babbling tonight to my hubby while we were sitting outside under the trees. The katydids were clicking loudly, the grasshoppers were playing their songs. The crickets were chirping. A lovely night, really.

What came to mind was the fact that the insects and other creatures walking this planet have a distinct way of communicating. They know what they're saying, even if we don't understand it.

Here's the deep thought...if there is an omniscient god who has designed this planet and all living creatures upon it, he/she may have built in a ton of puzzles to figure out. If there is such a God... (funny thing just happened as I wrote this...a boxelder type bug just flew into my ear. Coincidence? I think not!)... he/she may have a clever wit and sense of humor as well as a knack for languages. What if all of the bugs are chirping things that we want or need to know? The meaning of life? The grasshoppers have that covered if you listen carefully enough. The cure for cancer? The mosquitoes know that one...and they're trying to tell you every time they fly by your ear! Listen next, time, will you?!

So, carry this a little further. Every bug or animal that becomes extinct is another riddle that will never be solved.

...Just a hmmm for tonight....

Stupid Food Creations

Topping my list of new stupid food creations -- Oscar Meyer Fast Frank. Take something that's super easy to make -- the simple hot dog and make it even simpler. Package it in a "conventient" 3 pack and promise "bakery fresh" buns after it's been 'waved. I really didn't think this was serious. Next thing you know, there's going to be strips of ketchup and mustard that you peel and stick on the dog. It's going to save you time and of course it'll taste just like *real* ketchup and mustard. Oh, wait...an even better idea than the lazy dog. Why not sell toast already toasted? It'll save SOOOO much time and really, it'll taste just like real toast straight from your toaster plus or minus a few extra chemicals....

I've finally been called...

For jury duty. YAY! I've waited for years to be called up to serve. Work pays for my time, so I'm just lookin' forward to being the best damn juror I can be! Bring on a good case, Third District Court! I'm ready! (You know, I'll probably be dismissed just because I'm happy to be there. Certainly they'll believe I'm mentally unbalanced and not worthy to serve. Crap. Must practice my poker face before October...)
