Thursday Thirteen - Just Randomly

(altered photo)

  1. Why aren't there ever guys on What Not To Wear?
  2. Why does Indiana get a freeze every year after my lilacs bud?
  3. Is there an easy way to clean a George Foreman?
  4. An old high school friend has built the coolest "green" house in California.
  5. I'm toying with a product idea that I think would sell really well but don't know what the next step should be.
  6. I miss some of the people I worked with and some of my customers but I really don't miss work at all.
  7. How many less companies would be struggling and laying people off if they hadn't had to pay the exorbitant cost of health care that the insurance companies have caused to soar?
  8. Why is it, for some people, so much harder to turn the lights off than to turn them on?
  9. The sky was so clear last night that I could see Orion perfectly - the photo I took of it however would be entitled Blackout.
  10. Why can't I find a garden row maker thingy (like a single wheel with a single plow) like the one my ex-father-in-law (that word looks way over-hyphenated) had anywhere?
  11. Where did the word Easter come from?
  12. When and how did the bunny get involved?
  13. When Jesus asked Peter: "Do you love me more than these?" (John 21:15), who or what were the "these" he referred to?

Bonus question for Easter contemplation: What is your "these"?

Debbie, let me splain
1. because we don't care what we look like, 2. Global cooling, 3. Do you have a dog? 4. What shade of green, 5. Let me in on it. 6. Thats how I feel when I am at work. 7. Most of them. 8. It's a man thing, you wouldn't understand. 9. Zoom in please. 10. I have one. 11. The Easter Bunny silly. 12. Which came first, the Bunny or the eggs? I am assuming they weren't Easter Eggs.

At least you still have your sense of humor. Thanks.

I wish I knew the answer to cleaning the foremen grill... I love mine, but hate having to clean it up!

Yeah, I thought it was just Wisconsin that had the spring freeze thing. Oh well, lots of good questions.

Loved #6. I'm very glad that I wasn't laid off for financial reasons, but at times I romanticize how it would be to have my days open.

I used to spray my Foreman Grill with 409, and it was then easy to clean.

I wish they still sold the small Foreman Grills but all I can find are the larger ones.

I love this - Just random thoughts for the heck of it! I get those all the time!

I'm with you on #5 - I have some products I want to develop for but I need venture capital and a couple of nicely loaded "angels" plus someone else to dude up my business plan - yikes!

Thanks for stopping by my 13 Ways to Murder a Wild Peep, all suggestions on how to alleviate my pest problem are appreciated - especially if they leave the marshmallow intact for Sunday's Easter dinner!

1. They do once in awhile, but guys have to be REALLY bad to qualify.
3. Do it while it's still as hot as you can stand. 10. Because that thing had been handed down for a long time.
