if peeps weren't silent,would they be as sweet?,wee!gee! vs poisoned watermelon,publix pushing soy?,,and,,,part 34 fell into place.
Logging into post this my pg vw counter was showing 138 for yesterday and 4482 sofar this month.
I extend many,many,many thanx to those who have been pushing my pg vw count numbers up.
As a matter of fact,,since my last entry on 8/19 I seen a new high for that month of 4890 on the 22nd and even started this month off with 4487 showing.
Thank you all very much!!!
I have to say,,again,,and again,,I am really thankful for the visits yet majorly puzzled by the lack of feedback I have garnered.
I have been using the internet for over a decade and in that time I have visited many sites as banal as mine,,and way worse even,,that get at least some sort of commentary on occasion.
Yes,,I have previously concluded that the pg vws are a suitable substitute for actual comments,,and those numbers are nothing I am going to denigrate nor cast aspersions at because they are sweet to me,,so,,,bemusedly,,I'll just repost some links to ways to contact me or comment on what I write or post.
first off,,here's a group of boards one could use:
here's a form mailer:
and then there is that 'text link' at the bottom of this blog entry that reads -> Post comment
allrighty then.moving on.
In my last post I said I was working on part 34 of Wee!Gee!.
Well,,I was,,and while struggling to get back in the swing and get it rolling again,,,along comes some nice good looking,juicy,,yet not very sweet with a tang of 'something off' watermelon that I ate,,not greedily,,but freely,,that my wife picked up at a fruitstand up in Wabbaso on the west side of US#1 that definitely slowed part 34 way down.
Over the course of two day I ate a not unreasonable amount (I have learned in the past I do like watermelon a little too much for my own good so I keep that in mind),,even so,,,by the third day,,I wound up feeling like the mold had invaded me again,,minus the puking.
I was on the verge of actually wanting to go to the hospital.If it had stayed as intense as it was at first just a little bit longer,,I would have.
After I had suffered through (and was getting better from) a few days of intense intestinal pain that I noticed actually had less gas associated with it as usually accompanies my watermelon discomforts a guy my wife works with came down with the same symptoms after cracking open the watermelon he had gotten from the same place as my wife got ours.
He called his doctor and got a 'sameday' appointment so when he went he took some of the watermelon in his lunch with him which his doctor had tested.
Yep,,now I have a clue as to how a roach hit by Raid might feel.
The story goes that the melons came from a farm in Immokolee not long after we had a bunch of rain.
I say this so I can point out that watermelons can suck in 'water' through the spot where the vine attaches for a while after picking.
IOW,,they,,like other fruits and vegetables,,,don't actually die as soon as they are plucked,picked or cut.
Temperature changes can contribute to such as well.
So,,,if..per se,,one picked a crop that had been 'sprayed' according to schedule a tad early due to trying to beat the rains,,and did not get it out of the field before said rains puddled the 'fresh' pesticide up enough to leave the fresh picked/cut vines and holes under 'tainted' water,,then one could wind up with 'poisoned watermelon'.
Personally,,I just hope this kind of thing doesn't help give BO & Co. more justification for expanding gov control deeper into the food biz.
(As if they really need to say anything other than 'it's for your own good' to get the average sheeple to bleat,,'Oh,,thank you sirs,,another law.Please,,may we have another?'and get one more 'golden chain' looped around our necks.)
On another local note,,
In our search for soy-less products we had found that the bakery in Publix on Oslo and US#1 made a soy free Chicago Style Italian bread loaf and offered to make other breads without it as well.
Well,,now,,for no apparent reason except,,perhaps,,purposeful lowering of customer satisfaction levels,,the Chicago style has soy in it and they refuse to bake anything they do not get in a premade/frozen form.
Amazingly,,a 'manager' even told my wife to simply shop at a local bakery.
Needless to say,,we will most likely drive the extra distance to shop at the Publix on 43rd and Oslo.Unless,,of course,,they turn into a 'soy pusher' too.
I'll let you know.
Oh,,,yeah,,,like I said above,,that poisened melon slowed part 34 down,,but,,,it didn't stop it.
I hope someone enjoys it,,,and yet,,,even if'n ya don't,,,there it is so,,
Ya'll come back now,y'hear?!?
