  1. I don't remember EVER leaving either of my children in the car while things were taken in. There was never any of the "I thought someone else had them" either. When going anywhere as we were getting out of the car the discussion was "I'll get the kids and you get the stuff" or "You get the kids and I'll get the stuff". It's common sense. In her post she says "It was such a small mistake". No it wasn't. It as a very big mistake, and an easily avoidable one if any of them were thinking about the child at all.
  2. The Pick Is In

    That will only happen when there are enough people to fill the jobs...that can pass a drug test....and that will actually show up for work.
  3. Texas Mom Left Tots In Hot Car To Die

    Two separate incidents. One is a 19 year old and one is a 24 year old.
  4. Papa Johns Dubois

    We ordered from Papa John's a couple times, but weren't impressed. We're even less impressed by Frank's. I find it to be extremely greasy (more so than other pizza I have had) and it's pretty tasteless. So far, I prefer Scotto's. I'd love them to the moon and back if they had stuffed crust.
  5. New Sandy Township Sewage Surcharge

    Household of 4, in the city, 3 adults and 1 teenager. Our bill is approximately $1020 per year for water and sewage combined. We don't conserve water, nor do we waste it.
  6. What is the best way to deal with whatever it is that has decided my flower bed is its dining room table? I had a flower bed FULL of lilies, they were gorgeous and I was closing in on having about 80 of them. Something is eating the bulbs and I'm not especially happy about that. It's hard enough that someone is cutting my flowers (pretty easy to tell they were cut off). I have no idea what it is that is eating them.
  7. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    Supper tonight...was craving cheesy goodness
  8. Hey Grandpa, What's For Supper?

    The weather called for chicken and dumplings with some italian bread on the side.
  9. Help! Does anyone know what this is?

    My cat has a knot like that on one of his joints, but it didn't appear suddenly like your pooch's did My cat's was caused when his leg was broken by the abusive twits that had him before we stole him. It didn't heal properly. I hope that it's nothing serious and he's up and about on it soon.
  10. I cut the living daylights out of that thing. I'm not real thrilled with things that creep, crawl, and choke other things. Along with that there was morning glory that took me three years to get rid of. I can live with these things, I'll just have to mindful to keep them trimmed and cut back to only where I want them. I think I'll look into the low growing evergreens for the shady side. Once I dig up these lilies this fall to separate them, what do I do with the extra that is going to come out of them? I'll gladly part with them to anyone that wants them, if I'm lucky enough they will continue to do as well as they have. I wasn't expecting 60 plants from 6 in 3 years.
  11. From what I can count, in the past 3 years I went from the 6 original lily plants I put in, to 60 or so
  12. a perennial would work best, I'm afraid of digging up the bulbs already planted there as it is. The lilies are absolutely beautiful, I'm going to try to get my other laptop started up so I can get those pictures. I've been working on it today on and off. One of the lilies came up between the bricks. I have tulips planted on the one side of the porch, and nothing planted on the side that is almost all shade because I don't know what would do well there. I have some crocus bulbs I wanted to plant but not sure the best location in all of this for them.
  13. The lilies are asiatic lilies. The bushes I was trying to get something that wouldn't grow any higher than 18 inches to 2 feet at the most. It's a really small area in between the front porch and sidewalk. It used to be covered in morning glory. It took me 3 years to finally get rid of that completely. I have to add some more soil to it, especially after getting rid of all the dead leaves and cutting off about half the plants that were there and taking care of the weeds. This is just the front part, the sides are similar, but they are ground level and not built up at all.
  14. First, my lilies. I had bought 6 orange lilies a few years ago and planted them. The second year they were no longer orange and I've had blood red lilies every year. Not only do I have blood red lilies, but they've multiplied faster than bunny rabbits. I truly love them, but is there any way to control where they grow and how they multiply? I need something else to plant in the flower beds with them also and I need something that hopefully prefers shade and isn't orange or yellow. One side and the front pretty much get full sun and my tulips and lilies thrive there, but the one side is almost in shade all of the time. I also have 3 bushes in the front flower beds that I took the shears to today and butchered half them off as they were choking the lilies and going out of control. They are hardy, easy to deal with, don't mind the butchering, but they are royal pain. I don't kill plants that go in the ground, but I do have a tendency where they go out of control, haywire, and take on lives of their own. I need something that requires little care, beyond a simple snip and trim, that won't breed like a cache of bunny rabbits.
  15. My winter time craft project

    very pretty! I used to enjoy cross stitch, but it became too much for me, or more specifically my fingers.
