whoa, smartgarden, bye feathers, mri, musing

whoa that wasnt exciting as the markets dropped down
over 600+ points
wonder what today will bring
hopefully this has scared the bajeevers out of the politicians
so they can start working together to improve things
gridlock in washington is no longer acceptable
next years elections should be interesting
there may be a lot of new faces if congress doesnt get to
work to fix this mess

have discovered a new website www.smartgardener.com where
you can use it to design plan and monitor your garden
you can design your garden eg i took my garden which is
raised 4ft x 12 ft beds and placed them on the design then
selected what plants to plant this fall and winter
the website then laid out where to plant them
the website also will tell you when to plant everything based on
where you live and
you can get reminders of a to do list for your garden

the choices of plants are from seed companies so i just
selected seeds even though i will use plants to transplant
that i will buy from the nursery eg
swiss chard spinach and lettuce
i have found its easier to plant them from the 4 in pots rather than
dealing with planting from seeds

i have just started playing with it but think i will use it to plan
my gardens over the next year
one thing i have noticed is that i can get more plants into my garden
if i follow their recommended planting design

time will tell if it will work for me

today we give away one of our roosters
one thing we have learned is that having two roosters will not work
they will eventually have a fight to the death
even though the two roosters we have red and feathers are gentle
roosters and are not not like our rooster larry
we had to use a rooster rake to protect ourselves from him

but one of them has to go so
since feathers is the youngest he has to be the one
he is black large with long feathers on his legs and feet so the name

i will sneak into the chicken coop when its dark and snatch him
the chickens never put up a fight when we do this
we hang him upside down and place him in a pet carrier
he will be still until we get him to his new destination

where is he going
to a preschool and kindergarten where they have animals and
feathers will be the only rooster and will have the chickens to
himself-lucky guy

now he wont have to sneak around to visit the girls when red is
not looking

good luck feathers
you lucky guy

got it done yesterday
thats the third one ive had in 7 mo
am sure my brain is magnetized by now
noticed my metal rimmed glasses now will stay on my face
better now
have to be careful and not get too close to nails and things
as they will attach themselves to my head

the mri was noisy but not too confining
glad i did not have a total body scan though
might have to have xanax for that

next mri in 3 mo

a local weatherman posted he wanted his grass green
but just not flammable
