inked again, mcdonalds, no oil tax, water, my garden

am determined to beat the ink cartridge prices (rip off)
so got my refill kit again to refill my cartridge
of course i did it without reading the instructions
this time i only have 6 black fingers and did not get any on
my counter top
(my wife she got mad at me last time i did this)
but i have a cartridge that prints out ok just real smudgey
but it is readable as long as you dont have to fax it

after awhile the smudginess all cleared up

paying for ink cartridges is like having to pay some of those
trashy bank fees the banks impose on us
just ticks me off to have to do either

so mcdonalds is trying to replace humans with a touch screen
computer that you do your own ordering on
that just doesnt seem right

now we may get our orders right
guess they wont have to pay for all those benefits they
pay now and all those high wages they pay

for some high school students they have provided a job
and for some its the only job they can get

well at least the computers cant fry those fries
not yet at least

sure do like to deal with a human at the checkout areas
whenever i can

sure know when we are getting screwed by the elected officials
in washington
think that we should get the names of all the senators and
representatives that vote against taxing the oil companies and
print their names on the front page of all the newspapers and
post them on the internet for all to see so we will know
which ones are screwing us

vote them out no matter whether they are democratic
republican or independent

heck we get taxed pretty heavy every time we go to the gas
pumps to buy gas
guess thats to make up for the lost revenue from all of the tax
breaks we are giving big oil

you cant just cut programs and not find sources of revenue
all over america people are cutting their expenses and at the
same time are working longer hours and working second
jobs to balance out their budgets

maybe the government could learn a lesson from us

sure get nauseated reading about the no oil company tax

if you live around here where i do be ready to start watering
again if we dont get rain
most gardens need 1 inch of water a week
sometimes they need more in the hot windy summer
drip irrigation is the best
plants use 90% of the water from drip irrigation vs 60% of the
water from regular irrigation
be sure and mulch to conserve moisture
use the finger test-stick your finger in the ground to check for

im afraid to blog about this but my garden looks the best it has
looked in a few years
my tomatoes are growing like crazy
they sure liked the rain we had recently
just started to get nice red ones
they are loaded
hope for no attack of insects or hail storms which have wiped
out my maters in the past
glad i dont farm for a living
the bout of cold weather we had in april slowed things down some
but my taters, beans, peppers, egg plant, squash, corn, and okra
are growing good

more rain please

heat win
tonight dirk and durant play again
