I learned the hard way that the best time to mow was after 7. For years, I mowed between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.. Then one day, I mowed at dusk. And I have never gone back unless absolutely necessary. The difference is ridiculous. And I mow in an old pair of Avia's after the soles fell off my old ASICs.
It has been two months since I cut all of mine way back and it looks like it is time to cut it back again. I'm going to try the poisoning method because I'm always afraid it is going to eat my neighbor's house. And that first picture is exactly how I look trying to pull mine up.
Oh no. That is terrible. At least you got to enjoy some fried green tomatoes from them.
Ah the old if I can't have tomatoes, no one can. I like it. At my house it is the birds, not the squirrels that are the problem. They love my purple cherokee and black pearl cherry tomatoes. They leave the yellow varieties alone. Nothing makes you madder than going out and finding someone has been eating your hard-grown food.
I still have a 14-inch Zenith in my house. I have had it since college and it still works mostly great (the channels in the 40s go out 5 minutes after watching them). It has outlasted four other much larger televisions made in China. It even survived a lightning strike with no power strip, while a much newer TV on a power strip did not.
11 out of 21 not too bad.
Best dressed: Angelina Jolie and Claire Danes.
Worst dressed: Jessica Biel -- I think she was wearing a table cloth
Worst accessory: Thomas Jane's hat and Brad Pitt's hair
Best presenters: William H. Macy and Felicity Huffman
Best speech: Modern Family with Sophia Vergara and Steve Levitan
Most interesting speech: Peter Dinklage for getting everyone to google Martin Henderson. If you haven't already do it. It is a sad story.
I know, I should. And I definitely will before I make my Oscar predictions. I treat the Golden Globes as a sort of kickoff for the Oscars. I like making the pics for the Globes blind just to see how close I came. Are you rooting for any certain one? Have you seen any of the movies and if you have what did you think?
SPOILER ALERT I'm about to talk about season two.
I liked it. I like how the war is forcing everyone to change. And I can't believe that is the last we see of Bates. And did you notice that kissing foreshadowed later heartache. My favorite line of the Dowager Countess was "You're a lady, not Toad of Toad Hall." What did you guys think?
Here are the answers. Hope you had fun figuring them out.

Buckelew: I have watched "Big Bang Theory" and found it funny. It just comes on on Thursdays when everything else does so I had to cut something.
Remote: I might have to check out "Hell on Wheels," I was a big fan of "Deadwood."
Mimio: I haven't really watched "Breaking Bad," but I know I should. I have been told it is the best thing on TV. I am thinking of catching up over the summer with Netflix.
