I managed to fight off a squash bug infestation in my squash and zucchini beds, but now I have to deal with squash borers . The larvae eat through the squishy part of the stem and kill the plant . The gross part is how disgusting these little larvae are , all white with a little tiny dot of a blackhead. They are also very slimy.

That was the moment when I finally believed that most breast tissue is fat (unless one is nursing).  I wanted cleavage, and finally when I got it, I also had belly/bum, and no longer fancied fitted tops.  :(

I was what you call a late bloomer but always thought it was due to weight gain too. However, I'm not so sure since i've lost close to 30 lbs, and while many of my friends in teh same boat found their chest got smaller, mine did not. But mine too, as I discovered after my recent mammograms, are very dense, so I'm guessing less fat to lose, and more other stuff, so they pretty much stayed the same size.

Thanks for posting that siamesecat2965, I love having the hope I could shift the belly fat without losing the chest!

It's been a while since I was sick. I currently have a slip and slide of snot running from nasal cavities to the back of my throat and into my chest.

Current defensive tactics are decongestant, allergy tablets and spiked coffee.

Friend recently had jaw surgery, and is recovering, but fighting off a bit of an infection. DH & I were at dinner with Friend and his GF when we heard an "oh poopadities" something that looked like runny refried beans started dripping from his jaw to his shirt. At first, I thought it was refried beans - jaw surgery is not entirely conducive to mess-free eating - but nope. It was pus. The infection had bust through a spot in the sutures and he was leaking a really rather impressive stream of slightly bloody pus.

Turns out the doc had been expecting this, but had forgotten to warn them. They took off for supplies & to head home, and DH & I finished our food and got go-boxes for theirs, then ran it over to them.

Is it bad that I wasn't even the least queasy over a stream of pus at the dinner table?
What part of v_e = \sqrt{\frac{2GM}{r}} don't you understand? It's only rocket science!

No. I would not have been either.

I found a little bird dead in my backyard (not that I looked too close but I don't think it was the local cats), is it weird that I kinda want to have the body cleaned so that I can keep the skull?
I have no idea what you're supposed to do with a dead "wild" animal and if you can put them in the regular trash, so I burried it and marked the place for future reference. I wonder how long untill only the bones are left.

It will depend on ambient temperature and the ground temperature.

Something decomposes on ground eight times faster than something buried. Submersion is twice as fast as something buried.

I think I mentioned this before, up thread...

My Dad was a school teacher, with a focus on science.  He kept all sorts of weird and wonderful things.  A snapping turtle shell, various birds nests, etc.  If an animal was found - or someone brought it to him to be stuffed because he was also a taxidermist in his spare time - he'd put it in a little wire cage and chain it to a tree in the bush behind our house.  The various predators from small rodents down to insects would strip the bones bare in pretty short order and then Dad would have a nice clean specimen for his classroom.

This is also the man who took a lot of his old mounts that were starting to look a little worse for wear, torched them and set up a display for forest fire prevention week!

He was a very popular teacher...
After cleaning out my Dad's house, I have this advice:  If you haven't used it in a year, throw it out!!!!.
