MMM 388: Malta

There are actually a number of megalithic sites in Malta (Gozo and Hagar Qim are the ones I know offhand and by name).  And these are old, like older than the currently agreed-upon dates  for the Great Pyramids at Giza.  They are believed to have been built between 3600 BC and 2500 BC.  Granted, they lack the grandeur and scale of the pyramids, but they are some of the earliest megalithic ruins that remain with us today.

MMM 387: The Temple of Kukulcan

Reminder: Secret santa targets go out tonight after 7pm. If you want in, get in now.

The Werdpuss Editor lost all my content the first time I hit publish and I don’t have time to do it again.  Outer layer built in ~900 AD, 3 layers that we know of, evidence of animal and human sacrifices on site, yada yada go read wikipedia.

MMM 381: Summer’s End

I knew  girl named Summer in high school.  She had a nice end.  I’ve got some work to do before the snow falls, so the break in the heat is welcome, but winter always brings difficulties.  Yes I know summer doesn’t really end for another 3 weeks or so with the Autumnal Equinox.  I don’t celebrate commie holidays, so I needed another theme.  I choose to celebrate Labor Day most years by working as hard as I can at something for which I won’t be paid, as a remembrance of what communism really is.

MMM 375: Lockjaw

Weekend was absolutely awful for yard work.  It was either too hot to be outdoors, or a torrential downpour of rain.  Saturday afternoon I stepped on a roofing staple that pierced my heel.

Did you know Walgreen’s does tetanus/diptheria/pertussis shots?

Beach jeans.

With the death (sorta) of tumblr, these got harder to accumulate, but I managed with a few groups on Reddit.  With them having pseudo-banned The_Donald, I’m not sure I want to give them even a few clicks a month, plus a lot of those images are simply porn and I have to do a lot of sifting to find the non-nude, non-salacious images.  I might have to go back to mushrooms or figure something else out.

Pretty smile.

MMM 373: A full ton of grass clippings

So if you ever let parts of your lawn “go” in the hopes of making hay out of it, you’ll get some surprises.  You may find that some of it is actually rye and timothy, which will grow tall and straight and will become hay readily, but you’ll likely also find that quite a bit of it… doesn’t.  You’ll see some grass that has thin, whispy blades that fall down, twist into cowlicks, and generally get matted like a long-haired cat with bad grooming habits.  If you subsequently try to mow that, you’ll learn that there’s a limited amount of torque your mower is actually capable of exerting, and you’ll get to do a few restarts, assuming you can even clear the deck and let the blade spin again.

MMM 371

Power outage yesterday helped us learn that the breaker in the house labeled “barn” might not be connected to, well, anything.  The barn appears to be wired to a breaker labeled “OUT” in the breaker box in the other basement.  Neat!

Big balls around this place.

MMM 370: Spring returns

It’s back in the 60s here and still raining.

She looks ready for some new fighting game I won’t play.

MMM 369: I’m sick

I need to detox or catch up on sleep or something.  Been sick off and on for a couple of weeks and haven’t been to the gym in going on 2 months, just haven’t felt up to it.

So clearly, these aren’t working.

Pretty smile.
