8731 -

Yesterday, at the regional home show, there was a huge display regarding "DRYER FIRE" - it turned out to be a $1 bottle brush renamed "Dryer lint safety brush", and selling for $20.

I say, "bah, a mostly synthetic danger cooked up by lint brush salesmen... if you clean the lint trap, how can can it be?"

If I were a more superstitious fellow, I'd fear cruel irony, as we're doing laundry.

That said, I got the idea for a new item.. the smoke detector smoke detector... to detect if your other smoke detector is on fire... because you know that more than nine out of every ten smoke detector fires is started inside a smoke detector. (I wonder how many house fires have started from an electrical short in a smoke detector?)

Pomonkey - best local Amerindian word / Town name ever. Aww.. Po'Monkey got no nanners! Possibly a place to get a gig re:security and etc, too.

Pomonkey had a dryer fire!

Garden plan -

Tina, the In-Laws, BHK and I have a garden planned for our back yard - planting begins in March for the first crop.

It'll be in our back yard... Larry's going to bring in a few truckloads of topsoil and rototill by the end of this month... BHK and I will be working the section with broccoli, peas and parsley in March, and then continuing to pumpkin, watermelon, cantaloupe, cilantro, sunflowers, green beans and garlic at the top of may.

Other crops tended by the gang will include potato, onion, carrot, radishes, a few varieties of tomatoes, grapes, blueberries and all sorts of others. I expect it'll be a fun and educational experience... I haven't grown anything on this scale before, but we've got a master gardener, an engineer and a farm boy on our side to help keep things a-rollin'.

Finally Added Pye and BHK to my bio page... sakes! Pokey puppy Scotto.

Pictures for the kitties getting along in the loft.
