Yes. Did you know that corn is a grass?

playing hide and seek amongst corn rows has to be the best fun ever! Remember doing it as a teen millions of years ago.......rare to find veggies taller than you.......and just the way corn grows.......you have to snap them off..........

I did some chores that I had been putting off. First I called the Main Office to put in a Work Order. When the flood occurred in early August, they came in and removed the rubber band on the bottom that is supposed to give the appearance of a baseboard and drilled huge holes along the bottom so the water could drain out.

I am still waiting for the floor man to come and fix this problem and install my new kitchen floor and baseboard.

I then went into the bathroom with my trusty little stool, a bottle of Windex and cleaned the mirror. From top to bottom. I usually clean it as high as I can reach. Being 4'6" can make it difficult at times to do all the things I need to do. While I was there I cleaned the tub and the rest of the room.

Then I went into my holey kitchen and cleaned it. Every surface got scrubbed down instead of just a wipe off with a sponge. I have white cabinet doors and the steam from cooking leaves a film there. So I cleaned what I could reach.

I also stripped my bed and put on clean sheets. It was nap time for me. But it feels good to get work done that was needed so badly.

The smell of newly cut grass, is the smell of plant in distress and it trying to chemically warn the rest of the plant.

When lemmings become too plentiful, the grass they eat starts to produce a LSD like substance. There is no suicidal lemmings, just stoned rodents who thinks they are bad ass.

My father has over 300, my mum has told him No. So every time she buys art supplies, he goes and get a second hand cookbook and says if you can so can I.
