What's down the rabbit hole, Alice? Or maybe, what's through the cat door, Paige?

Please: Don't bug me

I was mowing the lawn today and this walking stick was hanging out on the fence. He was about 8 inches long! All pictures here.

Did you know that the longest insect in the world ever was a walking stick?

Entomology lesson done.

The photograph attached was taken by the crew on board the Columbia during its last mission, on a cloudless day.

The picture is of Europe and Africa when the sun is setting. Half of the picture is in night. The bright dots you see are
the cities lights.

The top part of Africa is the Sahara Desert.
Note that the lights are already on in Holland, Paris, and Barcelona, and that's it's still daylight in Dublin, London, Lisbon,
and Madrid.

The sun is still shining on the Strait of Gibraltar. The Mediterranean Sea is already in darkness.
In the middle of the Atlantic Ocean you can see the Azores Islands; below them to the right are the Madeira Islands; a bit
below are the Canary Islands; and further South, close to the farthest western point of Africa, are the Cape Verde islands.

Note that the Sahara is huge and can be seen clearly both during Daytime and night time.

To the left, on top, is Greenland, totally frozen.

Lottery Winner

Did you hear about that woman that won the lottery? She was a cleaning woman or something... her cash take home after taxes was $118 million dollars. CASH FOLKS. I guess she is cleaning up now (ha ha).

So, my trusty calculator says that if she lives for 20 years, she can spend $449 a minute and never run out of money.

That's $7.00 a second every single day for the rest of her life. That's absurd. As Becky would say "Give it to me."

Can you feel me now?
Know anyone who wants to buy a dining room table? It's in really great condition (only 2 years old).

It was mine at my apartment when I was single - too small for us....

Pictures here

Have you ever installed a fence? Holy cow. I had really no idea, first at the cost. Second, at the work of digging 42 holes for posts, and 42 bags of 80 lb. cement.

We ended up buying "middle of the line" fences from Home Depot... something like $70 for a six foot section. Add all the trimmings and you have $6,500 of fence. We love it, and it's safe for Paige... come by some time and enjoy for yourself.

A BIG THANK YOU to Scott, Joey & Ray Boom Boom for helping!! No doubt, I couldn't have done it without you! Thank you Anastasia for helping with Paige!!!!

Here are all of the pictures

I'm out.
