Government, Let Them Stop the Oil Leak

(source: IMDb)

The Oil Leak has been gushing for 72 days!

I was trying to think of a solution to stop it, and I finally realized, this is not a job for mere mortal man.  What we need is a superhero!  Superman, Batman, Wolverine, Jean Grey, The Hulk, Mr. Incredible.  Any of these guys could stop it within the timeframe of a movie.  The problem is our government doesn’t understand them and is afraid of them.  They’ve put all the superheroes under the Superhero Protection Program and made them promise not to use their superpowers.

I know some of these superheros are scary, but because we don’t let them do their jobs we are allowing an oil leak to destroy the Louisiana coast line, the marshes, and allowing the feds to put more regulation on the oil industry which will raise the price of gas.  These superheroes are here to fight crime and save us from man-made and natural disasters.

Please join me in helping our superheroes by signing this petition to discontinue the super hero protection program, so super heros can do their job.

You can’t beat that. Thanks Kris!

We Bought a House

You may be wondering why I haven’t posted in awhile. Well, Kris and I bought a house!

Front Yard
 still needs a lot of work. So far J&K Drywall fixed a lot of the drywall, hammered up the entryway, repainted the interior, and suggested some additions to the back. Dad, Kris and I laid tile (it’s still not done), Carpet Masters put in new carpet. I converted the geysers to sprinklers and I’m slowly trying to migrate to drip irrigation. Jason got our water pressure down to reasonable levels. Lately I’ve been spending the evenings spraying ants.

A few before and after shots…

And the ants have invaded our house from four different locations! I can’t figure out what they’re after, we’ll just see them swarming the coffee table, the tiled floor, etc.
I’m considering a “home and garden” category.


I’m Engaged!


Oh, what a cluttered mess I am. Packing, packing, packing.

The biggest challenge is throwing away stuff I just don’t need or use.

I have returned.
