Howard Dean!Guess what! Mizzen finally made it to 2lbs!! Spinnaker = 2lbs, 12.55ozMizzen = 2lbs, 00.85oz
A long day at work today, but that's OK. My new Sanita clogs (same size as my old Danskos made by Sanita) from Amazon arrived today, and they fit like a pair of gloves. Aside from normal new shoe stiffness, they are very comfortable out of the box. $50 less than the Dansko Chinese knockoffs from the fancy shoe store that not only don't fit but are mismatched torture devices certainly doesn't hurt either...TTFN
Great to hear the Sanitas worked out, Alan. And thanks for the tip!
listener, I can understand about you not wanting to click on the link re the injured kitty in the previous thread. I mainly posted it because there was also information there about how to donate towards the kitty's (named "Freedom") medical expenses--something I'm not really able to do myself at the moment.
Thanks, Renee. I'm not able to donate either. Expenses for rescuing our two have been hefty, even though the Rescue group paid the lion's share!
I totally understand that. At the pet store, they are always asking if I'd like to add a donation at the checkout--to help homeless pets or something. Sometimes there's just a "no thanks" button you can check. But in the past, the cashier used to ask if I would like to donate. I would explain that I was donating to extend my collie's life by purchasing expensive food that he had some prayer of actually eating.Thinking about Brady. Now I has a sad. :(
*hug* ReneeIt's been about ten months since we lost Binky and two years this month for Fluffy, but thinking about them makes me cry. I don't think time heals all wounds. You just have to plod onward.
So, word has come after the testing was done on bulk Green Mountain Compost:The Vermont Health Department says tests have detected low levels of two herbicides in some compost made at Chittenden Solid Waste District facilities. Health officials said Thursday that the two herbicides are not widely used on food crops in Vermont and are intended to control thistle, clover and other weeds on nonresidential turf or rangeland. The Health Department says the results provided by the district show levels far lower than levels that would increase the risk of harm to human health but says there’s enough to affect growing plants such as tomatoes, potatoes and beans. The district has told customers not to eat or sell vegetables grown where bulk Green Mountain Compost has been used this year if there are tomatoes or bean plants with curled or stunted leaves.Full article: http://www.benningtonbanner.com/local/ci_21016247/vermont-and-regional-newsHere’s the Burlington Free Press article...http://www.burlingtonfreepress.com/article/20120705/NEWS02/307050023/Tests-confirm-herbicide-in-CSWD-compost?odyssey=tab|topnews|text|FRONTPAGE&nclick_check=1...which includes:Symptoms of the contamination include cupped leaves, twisted stems, distorted growing points and reduced fruit sets on broadleaf plants such as tomatoes, potatoes, eggplant, peas, peppers and sunflowers.It appears there’s a good chance that whoever used the herbicides, then shipped feedstock or other material to the district for composting, acted illegally, officials said.So far all the crops at the Root Center look healthy, so it may be that the compost they got was not affected. HOPE!!!
Addendum...They have now discovered that the bagged compost is also affected, not only the bulk compost. Hmmm. That means I'll have to take a closer look at our own gardens at home. Heh.Hiya Cat!Renee... ~ ♥ ~= Thinking of you, puddle-in-Absentia! =
Thinking of you too, conference Bill. Hope it's going well!BTW, hallo from Starbucks in South Burlington! Waiting for Mah*Sweetie to get out of work so we can go to out DIL's art show opening together.:-)
Perkins just bolted from me when he saw a guy skateboarding down the street. I thought I had his leash on securely, but apparently not. I've got him back now. That boy needs SO much training.
So glad he's back, Renee. That's agro you do not need.
FB is acting up. I can't post to one of my groups. Not a calamity, merely annoying.
