Re: Who needs clean water? Bah!

Since I'm not a water quality environmental engineer, I can't form an opinion if it was a good or bad decision by the federal judge.

Re: A special stupid

Several years ago I noticed that whenever a house was torn down, shortly thereafter exterminators' trucks could be seen at the neighboring houses.

Re: Mouse Wars

I was thinking that too. Owl population in decline, perhaps?

Once you have won the initial battle and pushed back the mice from establishing a beachhead in your pantry, check for other things that may have attracted them around your home.

Mouse Wars

I've been in my house for almost 16 years without ever having a mouse. That changed Friday evening. My wife pulled out the flour container with black specks on top of the lid. She said to me that it looks like we have been invaded with bugs again. [more]

Re: A special stupid

But does disagreeing with someone on an issue automatically equate to hatred? I disagree with many people on many things, but I don't hate any of them. In fact, most of the people I disagree with are my best friends.

Re: Weeds in the driveway cracks

My weed killer is citrus based... Take any citrus, rinds or whole fruits (cut in half), cover with vinegar in a closed container (I use a plastic Folgers can) and set it in the sun for a few weeks.

Looks boring.

Re: Goodel = Kim Jong-un

I'm just curious, where does this "Francis" phrase come from, anyways?? I've heard it used many times in my life. Who was Francis? Was this Francis person so notoriously uptight that their name worked its way into the English lexicon? [more]

Your statement, "Patriots bugged locker rooms" is a lie. You know it's untrue, but you proffered it anyway. Now, you're repeating the lie, but trying to fob it off on Dungy, who never said any such thing.
