Free Packing foam and 2 hours labor = good times

Shannon got some paking styrofoam in a recent shipment. I decided to put it to bad use. 2 hours of gluing later, time to terrorize the local kids. Not a bad flyer for something you pull out of the garbage.

Warning: Political Rant.

Politicians are morons.

You know what you should do when there is a huge surplus of houses? In Utah, we decided to encourage people to build more houses. We offered a $6,000 "home run" grant to buy brand new houses. I payed for this bill twice. once in taxes, and again when i went to sell my old house, which had to compete with brand new houses that qualified for the $6,000 off.

Utah supreme court decided it was ok for me to quietly enjoy navigable waterways on private land, so I did!
Then passed House Bill 141. Now I can't.

Gov Herbert signed both ideas.

You probably got your own ideas, here is where to go to see who voted how and be a single issue voter, like me. They don't make it easy, it takes some digging, helps to know the number of the bill before hand and have a date.

Anybody wants a copy of vote record for keeping me from touching river bottoms and the "home run grants" votes email me and I'll send it to you. Im printing em up, bringing em to the polls and going to try to fire some people. Others have done a fair job not pissing me off. Early voting starts tommorow.

The economics of gardening.

I Pickled some cucumbers from garden which majically turn cucumbers into pickles.
jars 50 cents, time pickling 2 hours for 6 jars. Not sure what the brine costed. $3.00/ jar at store seems like quite a bargin now.

I got a theory on what you are getting when you garden. you go out and watch the garden and see things grow. when you finnaly harvest you are looking at something that at best cost 2 times as much as you would pay at the grocery store. so what are you buying when you garden?
