Back to food hmmm,
Home is Houston- I drive an 18 wheeled refrigerator in 48 states, Goin home end of Sept, been runnin for 2 months, will be glad to get there. It makes my word association almost opposite of you guys thoughts, but I do have fun or try to.
Been driving since 1984, with a few breaks, Canada too from Vancouver to Montreal- we hang our drinks outside the window to stay cool at night, glad they finally raised the speed limits on the big roads, doesn't help much on the smaller ones
Yup. Crossed in Wash state at 2 places, Detroit, Niagara Falls at Syracuse, and another one farther east as well- I don't cross anymore since passports were made mandatory, I have been in all 48 statesof The continental USA. The waits are ppwk, it's harder to get back in than out. Doesn't pay well enuff running general freight to mess with border crossings
One possible origin of the word sabotage comes from the French word for clogs, sabot. The French Luddites threw their wooden clogs into powered looms to clog the machinery during the Industrial Revolution.
I cross posted, but thought that this story is still interesting.
We have raking, and even more raking. With these beautiful tall trees, comes a price...it is not yet burn season and I have put a few into the garbage route. Some I compost, but unless I can have the oak leaves without the pine needles, it takes very long to decompose. It would be nice to have a shredder.
I try to separate the pine straw for my strawberries and blueberries. It is so easy to get poked by it, so I try and be careful, though i rarely use gloves. I also use the wood shavings from my husband's sawing and planing.
I have so many oak leaves...SO many oak leaves. I bag them and try to get rid of them on craigslist (no takers though) because our city charges for pick up. Have so many I can fill the compost 3 times each season (fall and spring) even mulching them. I use them in the gardens, I am using them as back fill, I am using them everywhere. I typically end up with about 50 paper lawn bags each fall and 40+ in the spring. MULCHED! Good thing those bags are cheap!
