MMM 282: New fence, new farm?

Going to go look at the acreage on Tuesday.  Gotta call fence guy today and schedule that install, which will set us back a bit on the cash on hand.  I’m in a weird place with whether I want to leave or not.  All the talk over the fence actually has relations pretty amiable with the neighbors, and we’re yet to find a place where the land and house are an actual step up for us.  About the only way it seems we can make that happen is to buy land and build, but that makes this a multi-year process, and there may be some lean times in the middle when we’ve got 3 mortgage payments.  Adventure, yay!

Tiring exercise.

I hate when the heads are cut off.

202 Comments

  1. wakey wakey

  2. I’m awake. Post was delayed because I needed to get the dishes washed.

  3. Comments are delayed because everyone is being lazy.

  4. Long night last night. Thunder lasted at least a few hours and the whole time I had a 50 pound cow dog sitting bolt upright next to me panting and shivering with fear. He looked tired this morning. I wonder if he’ll stay awake all day while I work out of solidarity.

  5. Paula got subpoenaed to appear in court on a DUI case where she was the nurse that drew the blood sample. She is pissed…its messing with her favorite crossfit class time.

  6. Feeling less than motivated.

  7. Well I tried.

  8. I have to motivate. Zumba in 30

  9. Heh, don’t bump Ann Coulter from a pre-booked seat!

    http://www.bizpacreview.com/2017/07/16/hell-hath-no-fury-like-bumped-ann-coulter-delta-think-happen-514515

    Of course the lefties think it’s racism.

  10. I guarantee someone thought they could earn Leftroid points with that stunt.

    Whether it can offset the Wrath of Coulter, I am not qualified to say.

  11. the last dude is a keeper

  12. love sitting around waiting for something to do…

  13. Good point raised by Chris last night about McCain. I really didn’t think too much about the procedure they described. “Blood clot removed above the eyebrow” is purposely vague. There’s really not a lot of real estate above the eyebrow for a blood clot. I mean, if he bumped his head and had a contusion that would be one thing. Other than that we’re talking about a surgeon working on his frontal lobe.

  14. “Other than that we’re talking about a surgeon working on his frontal lobe.”

    he was becoming unmanageable, so a lobotomy was in order

  15. I think we can all just assume that whatever is erin with McCain’s head has been affecting his thought process for years.

  16. jay – i’ll take a pizza with mushrooms and sausage please

  17. Make that two!

  18. So, they decided it would be a good idea to replumb the chilled water lines to five buildings on campus this week, including mine. No A/C for those buildings in the middle of July. 250 IT specialists with no office and word from management is find on-campus sites to work — don’t even think about working from home.

    Oh, and if you have any computers in the buildings, we can’t guarantee you can use them, because if it gets too hot, the Network people will turn off the internal network switches to the building.

    Luckily, I have a tape library with a desk and chair across campus. No one will know where I am, but I’m “on-campus”.

    Add this to the road construction project from hell that includes the main thoroughfare on campus and half of the parking garages closed, and one does think about getting a real job.

  19. *turns on fan
    *points it towards swifty

  20. McCain will be in dead within 2 weeks.

  21. You just need to make one of theses Swifty:

    http://interestingengineering.com/cooling-device-made-2-liter-bottles-uses-zero-energy/

  22. I’ll send you some ice to cool ya down, swifty.

    /does back-of-napkin calculations on how many outboard motors will be needed to move Antarctic supericeberg

    …it may take a while, though.

  23. Zombie John McCain

  24. It’s possible he’s been dead for years.

  25. He’s certainly been dead to me for nearly a decade.

  26. Feeling cooler already :)

  27. Besides destroying a lot of government property, and getting captured and held prisoner, what has John McCain ever accomplished?

  28. He’s helped spend a fuktonne of our money –

  29. Hotspur, he’s gotten a LOT of Dems to accept him as a “reasonable” republican they can work with. duh

  30. So, can I assume when McCain uses his catchphrase “My friend(s)…” he doesn’t have any Hostages in mind?

  31. I can’t imagine how awful it must be to be on Twitter.

  32. It’s censored. so there’s that.

  33. Can Twitter be any worse than Facebook? I’ve never been on either, btw.

  34. Hotspur, what are the odds of this being water tight?

    http://tinyurl.com/y97eud6g

  35. Based on the rake edge it would appear that there are two layers of shingles. So if the bottom layer is still intact, it could indeed be watertight.

    I wouldn’t go another day without a complete tear-off and reroof.

  36. Crazy neighbor. No money.

  37. If you look at that gable end, I’d definitely bet that is two layers or more.

  38. I’m watching a debate on universal basic income.

    Scary stupid.

  39. She hasn’t cut her lawn in months. I probably couldn’t sell this place because of her.

  40. MJ, where?

  41. Are you in a city?
    I have a crazy hoarder neighbor that had her roof replaced under some “community improvement” program. A guy I used to work with had all his windows replaced under the same socialist scam.
    At least $10k on his house alone.

  42. Intelligence squared US.

  43. I see your problem.

  44. Everyone gets the same income! It’s failed before, but we can improve the plan!

    Just wait! This is gonna be great!

  45. I’ve been busy today unsubbing from all the unwanted email bullshit I received.

    Whew. I should hire someone to do this for me.

  46. Anyone listen to the podcast S-Town?

  47. I’ve lost track of most of my podcasts. What’s that one about?

  48. Tushar?

    twitter.com/etherbrian/status/887041010274111488

  49. John McCain the answer to the question no one asked.

  50. John McCain’s daughter is a 6/10. Would smash.

  51. S-Town is about a really weird guy that thinks a murder happened in his small town.

    Lots of twists and turns and I think it would interest someone like you, leon.

  52. Correction:

    You would smash her boobs to your groin.

  53. I mentioned this before – but for those who were absent or shitfaced, The Autopsy of Jane Doe is a good movie.

  54. Didn’t get any sleep last night, kicked ass at work today. Don’t know if the two are related but I don’t want to it again.

    Access control is cut over minus three gates, cameras are all up along with video intercom doors and desk stations. Cut the gates and big monitors tomorrow, then test and train.

    My crew wants to go home, and they are not getting along with each other. One more hard day and one easy one and we are home free.

  55. I only do comedies.

    Completely filled up on gripping dramas/ horror IRL before 5th grade.

  56. I need to be shitfaced more often. Won’t solve anything but it might make the shit swirling in my life more tolerable.

  57. LOL HotBride watched for about the first half hour or so, then said, “Nope, nope, nope, bedtime.”

  58. Greetings, Chochachos.

  59. Is there a place here for refugees from the Island of Misfit Toys? Chi sent me.

  60. Yes, but first a little mumba.

    How many bullwhips do you have shoved up your ass – right now?

  61. Ladies and gentleman, this is why we love Mare.

    Groin/boob smash for the win.

  62. Did you stream the movie. I looked around online and it appeared as though I’d have to pay for it.

  63. A pew. A pew of bullwhips.

  64. It was fuckin 99 cents on iTunes, you cheapskate.

  65. We let in pretty much anyone, Miley, but you do have to answer Hotspur’ s question. It’s traditional.

    Also, what’s in your garden and what’s your diet and exercise routine.

  66. We talking a Catholic pew or a Luthern pew or what here?

  67. Okay, first time we’ve had that answer. Welcome.

  68. Or a Pepe LePew?

  69. Oh man that’s funny. Your movie reviews are worth less than a buck.

    Srsly it looks good.

  70. Tuna casserole included with the pew?

  71. 87 on Green Tomatoes. Definitely worth getting.

  72. “We let in pretty much anyone, Miley, but you do have to answer Hotspur’ s question. It’s traditional.

    Also, what’s in your garden and what’s your diet and exercise routine.”

    But of course. A “pew” is to be considered in the neighborhood of a half dozen. I’ve made that term up and I’m promoting it here, in print for the first time online.

    I was raised Catholic, but I’m thinking this is a Protestant pew of some kind.

    Diet – trying to do the paleo LCHF/IF thing again. I got off and it’s been hell getting back on.

    For exercise I walk down the stairs.

  73. I think you mean rotten tomatoes.

  74. Stay away from Car in.

  75. What’s your opinion on cover songs?

  76. LOL Green Tomatoes. WTF

  77. I am often alone in my pew, but I go to the early mass, and I’m just trying not to be in the way when I don’t get up for communion.

  78. What’s your opinion on Muppet porn?

  79. A man who fart in church have to sit in own pew.

  80. Do you ever talk shit about breakfast cereals? Be specific.

  81. Forgot to cover the garden.

    I had to transfer a part of my perennial bed to this balcony when the bank auctioned the house. I’ve made cheapo planters by buying large plastics bins and drilling holes in the bottom. I’ve got liatris, a coneflower “White Swan” and a sage plant next to that. A clematis and myriad morning glories – right now it’s the purple ones. Red and blue coming later in the season. Cleome, too.

    I’ve also got a stand of black hollyhocks, single, a heuchera and a bit of ivy from the front yard. A nice pot of oregano (it’s flowering now). A large old lavender from the summer I moved here to be with my love. So, 11 years old it is. It looks like a tortured Japanese bonsai. It’s spawned many cuttings over the years. Some of the ferns from the front garden, some lilies of the valley and oxalia from the side garden. Iris. A tough old chrysanthemum that makes it through every winter.

    Oh right, and Japanese lanterns.

  82. Got any mushrooms?

  83. Jesus.

  84. At least you know the proper way to use “myriad.” I like you.

  85. Jesus.

  86. Jesus?

  87. Miley!

    (I’ve got such a crush on her, but I’m not her type. Hell – I’m not anyone’s type…)

  88. “Do you ever talk shit about breakfast cereals? Be specific.”

    I have many fond memories of breakfast cereals – things like Cocoa Krispies (better than the puffs, because the milk got moar chocolatey). Then Captain Crunch (later the crunchberries). Good times. College got me into granola. In my 30s I got into Grape Nuts for awhile. Don’t ask me why. I made a lot of grapenut pudding.

    I don’t have any beef with breakfast cereals – but I won’t eat oatmeal or Cream of Wheat or anything with a gross texture.

    Kinda miss cereal but it’s expensive and carb-loaded.

  89. Chi!

    Ha – I don’t think anyone’s my type at this point.

  90. Your mom is my type.

  91. “At least you know the proper way to use “myriad.” I like you.”

    Plus, I’m open to correction. All in the interest of using proper English.

  92. We goin with mommas now?

    Yo mama, she so fat, when she haul ass she gotta make two trip.

  93. I forgot to tell you – “your Mom” plays heavily over here. These folks are a tad more mature than the horde…

  94. A tad? I’m not quite sure where that fits on the pew.

  95. “Tuna casserole included with the pew?”

    I make a mean tuna casserole. I put peas in it because they need to be there, not because I like peas.

  96. Proper English is racist.

  97. Cover songs and Muppet porn?

    In theory, the cover song is a good thing. Can be painful to listen to, or great. You just never know.

    The bands at our high school dances always played popular cover songs. It was considered a must. They were never “bad.”

    Muppet porn – I may have seen something once (or was that a dream?) and I laughed.

  98. I hear that, Scott, and it gives me the sadz, since I’m an English major. I try not to be a grammar/spelling nazi.

    Just, you know, it’s is a contraction of “it is” and, like “his” and “hers” the possessive its has no apostrophe.

    That is all. That is all I care about anymore. I’ve given up the rest.

    Thank you for allowing me to get that out of the way up front. I’ll try never to mention it again.

  99. I will.

  100. Grammar will be criticized, html will be corrected.

  101. Grammar nazi fight!

  102. I hate Illinois Grammer Nazis.

  103. I hate Colorado spelling nazis.

  105. I didn’t think you were supposed to talk about clematis.

  106. Hi Miley, welcome.

  107. So, if youse guys can keep something under your hats, I’ve actually got something I’m excited about going on tomorrow. I’m going out to L.A. to audition for Jeopardy.

  108. You are going to kick ass.

  109. Ho. Lee. Sheet.

    Good luck, ‘ol chap!!

  110. Waiting for beef out of the crock pot to cool so I can put it in the fridge and go to bed and toss and turn until 4am and then drive to Kalamazoo and walk around Pferdscheisse Acres then drive back and work a full day.

  111. Good luck, Sean, I hope you get it.

    whose (heh) miley –
    does zhe swing around on wrecking ballz?

  113. Crock pot beef?

    Who does that?

  114. SEAN!!!!!
    good luck friend!

    remember – if you get stuck on a question, the proper answer is:
    “Who licked Ed Balls in 2015”

  115. Beef chuck roast in the crock pot becomes shredded beef and then taco bowls.

  116. Yay, good luck, Sean!

    Scott, I crockpot beef tips from Costco. They can be seriously tough without a lot of braising, and I don’t have a sous vide setup. Crockpot beef stew or beef bourguignon.

  117. Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen.

  118. I’m going out to L.A. to audition for Jeopardy.

    Remember, “Who are three people who’ve never been in my kitchen?” Is not a correct answer.

  119. BOOYAH!!!!!!

    when will these marauding amish figure it out????

    Right now I’m listening to Alice in Chains, Manowar and INXS. Your call.

  122. I smoke tough beef. Same thing, but outdoors,
    so better.

  123. Right now I’m listening to Alice in Chains, Manowar and INXS.

    Like, all at the same time?

  124. Sean! Kick ass and I hope your thumb is as fast as your mind!

    That would be me, and no. But I am new and still need to find out who all y’all are.

    Thanks for the welcome!

  126. Sean M – alternating.

  127. Hello miley.

  128. And good luck with Jeopardy! I used to watch that with my grandmother in the 70s and she said “You know all the answers! You should go on that show!” I’d choke. Reflexes not what they used to be, either.

  129. Hello Vmaximus!

  130. Good luck Sean, finally being a font of knowledge is going to work in in your favor.

  131. Mare brings up thumb speed.

    *says nothing*

  132. /waves at Miley

  133. Sean Jennings is gonna dead pan a mom joke at Alex.

    Who will get it.

    Awesome news!

  134. Miley, don’t worry about these garden questions and exercises. Just tell lots of really bad puns, and you’ll fit right in.

  135. Miley is Car in’s soul mate.

  136. Sigh. I feel left out with all this gardening business. I have what you might call a brown thumb.

    No, not from that.

    I kill cacti.

  137. Time to see if they kill another Stark, or John Snow, but I repeat myself.

  138. Most of the dyin’ takes place before the open credits.

  139. Hi Brother Cavil!

    Jay, I’m going to work on puns. I’m out of practice.

  140. The good thing about puns is that everyone hates them.

  141. Except for Oso. Oso lurves the puns.

  142. That way you get to be an equal opportunity annoyer.

  143. The good thing about puns is that everyone hates them

    Good thing to know. I’m an equal opportunity annoyance.

  144. I’ve killed cacti before by over watering. What I do with plants nowadays is neglect them more than anything. It’s my Darwinian torture chamber. Only the strong survive.

  145. It’s been nice hanging out here this evening, but I was up late last night and need to get to sleep early to catch up. Thanks again, and I’ll be back.

  146. Oh my gawd does my dog stink!
    New neighbor dropped a piece of Hawaiian pizza earlier – pro tip: never give a minpin ham and/or pineapple.

  147. I’ll watch Jane Doe. Judging by his taste in books, and his hatred of Blue Jasmine, I’ll probably like it.

  148. that’s ok, leon goes to bed at 7 too.

    I read that whole fuckin mess and still didn’t find $20. This place is going to hell in a handbasket.

    Also, welcome Miley. If you comment rarely then everybody ignores you. Good luck and shit.

  150. I’d like to see Leon vs Turd Ferguson on Jeopardy. That would be epic.

  151. I read that whole fuckin mess and still didn’t find $20.

    Check behind the gnome.

  152. My gawd, it’s like a sulfur bomb every 30 seconds in here…

  153. blerg

  154. You missed a de-lurk, C arin!

  155. Good luck, Sean!!!

  156. Vmax, I’m still scheduled to be in Houston Aug. 7.

  157. Dang it, the Braves got my hopes up with that last inning.

  158. Thanks, everyone. I’m nervous, but I’m just gonna go and do my best. From what I understand, if you pass the written test at the beginning, they put you in a mock game and do kind of a contestant interview. Then, you wait for up to 18 months for them to call you. If they don’t call, you didn’t make it into the contestant pool.

  159. Danny’s equanimity reassured Paula.

  160. I’ll take Fuck You, Canada for 500, Alex.

  161. If you comment rarely then everybody ignores you. Good luck and shit.

    I don’t ignore anyone.

    wakey wakey.

  162. You missed a de-lurk, C arin!

    I caught it. Just to blergy to comment last night. Plus extra teenage boy here (son friend from soccer).

  163. We need a new post.

  164. EVERYONE SCATTER

  165. Eh, I’m used to being ignored. To be fair it isn’t like I have high quality comments most of the time anyhow.

  166. I read everything. I don’t ignore anyone. But unless you’re talking about Zumba I may not have a snappy riposte.

  167. What’s with the french replies? I have a hard enough time with english.

  168. Plus she’s reposting them, I don’t see the point there…

  169. When Miley comes back we should ask her if she twerks.

  170. I went and walked around for half an hour and I don’t think I managed to see all of it. It’s perfect.

  171. Seems to be a lot of talk about Kamala Harris. Kamala? Really? I guess it’s no more of made up name than Barack. And she’s half white or something, so she has that going for her.

    Run the vapid cunt. She should be good for a few laughs.

    With the Dems it’s always about identity. Always.

  172. They could get away with that shit with Obama, but after him, folks are going to be “eff that, not doing that again”.

    So then they scream “RAAAAYYYYCIST”, but everyone expects that regardless, so, meh.

    Too much vinegar, not enough honey, and the money for the honey’s just about gone.

  173. Pretty much my day yesterday

    http://tinyurl.com/y7rvu3l8

  174. Yeah, Kamala is a big hero with the libs, cuz she’s sticking it to the man.

  175. There was a grass-fed beef ranch literally next door. I could stand in the woods and see the steers.

  176. They think the answer is a liberal from California?
    Good luck with that.

  177. She’ll win California, so there’s that.

  178. So would Carlos Danger.

  179. Anyone talked to Phat lately?

  180. The sausage cannon works! Good job Roamy.

  181. I’m going to have to buy a tractor.

  182. Leon

  183. Absurd, I hate wearing a suit.

  184. You could pioneer a new style – cargo shorts with coat and tie. Spiffy.

  185. They think the answer is a liberal from California?
    Good luck with that.

    Yeah, no kidding. A Load of Dog Crap, D-CA could carry the state. Then there are the other 56 to think about.

  186. This is not the world I want to live in.

    Sorry Warden. It’s the one I want to live in.

    The cocksuckers wanted war. Now they shall have it.

  187. Hmm, just allow choice in the insurance marketplace? Allow those with Obamacare to have it? Could it work?

    https://townhall.com/columnists/stephenmoore/2017/07/18/cruz-rescues-republicans-on-obamacare-n2356051

    Yeah I know some still hate Cruz. He’s still smart. Not sure about this plan, but it does throw a curveball.

  188. yeah, HS, it’s like picking a fight with a boxer, going to a gunfight with a knife. They don’t know what box they opened. They even pissed off libs with that stunt.

  189. Not sure what I ate yesterday that so disagreed with me, but I just left a quart of liquid Obama in the terlet.

  190. The loss of the house and senate next year is going to be of epic proportions. Trump will not get another Supreme Court nominee approved – ever.

    These fucking assholes need to have their balls cut off and crammed down their throats.

  191. What must it feel like to be a democrat and know that if your party leadership wants something the senators and representatives will vote FOR it – in lockstep?
