TOTD: What are your feelings on the TOTD threads?

They can be interesting and spark discussion of various topics, some serious, some silly and fun.

But it's tough to come up with something different day after day. We've discussed this before. I've never been a fan of them, but don't mind them if everyone enjoys them. The irony is that someone who has long ago been banned started them. At the time, everyone was against them. Then they crept back in.

I generally like them better than cut and paste articles of the daily freak show variety. They are original and sometimes thought provoking.

Just create a word file called questions and whenever you find a good one copy it to the file. Don't wake up Saturday morning with your eyes half crusted shut and expect creative genius to overtake you!

We're slipping back into the freezer this weekend. I bought the first gardening magazine of year today but it will be long time before I can get my fix. :(

TOTD: Like the U.S. Military, TOTD people are an all volunteer force. People who don't care for them, don't read them. I seldom look at the Sports Forum but I assume that it's popular. ;)

You should be starting your broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage seeds indoors now.

Not up here, big guy. We still get snow on Mother's Day.

Drizzly rain and cool here on the Mountain.

I usually enjoy the TOTD. They can be thought provoking or fun. Some are quite interesting.

Snow doesn't kill broccoli. You start them 8 weeks prior to planting time. Of course our planting time in OK is earlier than yours, I put mine out the second week in February and they normally get covered with 5 inches of snow at least once but it doesn't hurt them. If you like asparagus and your ground isn't frozen now is the time to bury your crowns.

That sums it up for me as well. Sometimes I participate, sometimes I just drive by.

The ground is frozen, all right. It's not the snow, it's the temps. Our nighttime temps will be well below freezing for quite a while.

I don't start veggies inside anymore. There is too much kill during the hardening off period. I wintersow now. They germinate when they feel like it and they're already toughened up for the conditions.

He just wants you to hold him.

My g/f was hit by a drunk driver last Sunday while trying to make a trip to Wal Mart, car totaled and she is all bruised up. The bruise on her breast looks very painful. She's having to get all kinds of tests done. Her knee is swollen. Her niece and son were in the car also, the niece (19) also took a beating, her son in the back seat is fine. Thank goodness for that. I got tired of fighting for space in my bed, as she looks pretty comfortable and moved to the living room. I should be sleeping in!

I refered her to an attorney that is a member of the local woman's republican chapter and sent her to a physical therapist/rehab specialist that is a lefty & went to the innaugeration with Harry Reid's tickets...but both are really good. The attorney is now a patient of the same doctor. :p So the g/f is on the mend and my attorney friend says her neck feels wonderful after the traction & treatment!

TOTD: Like SLW mentions, your TOTD is not a very new topic of discussion

If the current trend continues I will be growing sea weed!

Thanks. It's been a trying few days.

39 year old buddy of mine found dead in his Illinois home a week ago Wed, then her car accident, followed by me being sick for a few days. It has to get better. :) I've already burned up 3 paid sick days this year...that sucks

Thanks.

The buddy of mine was huge, like a foot taller then me. He would tell everyone we were twins. He worked for me part time in the resturant biz...when I needed him I would call his real job and leave jacked up messages with his secretary. He told me she was nosey...lol

For instance I would say I was the manger of the local strip club and we had his wallet...she would announce it over the plant wide PA system, LOL

I'm really going to miss him, but the thoughts of him warm my heart....

39 is too young to die, way too young. But it happens. :mad:

Here's to Dru........


Dru P. Diekhoff, 39, of Cambridge, formerly of Delavan, IL, died unexpectedly Wednesday, January 13, 2010, at his home. Cremation has been accorded and a service will be held in Delavan at a later date. Stackhouse-Moore Funeral Services, Cambridge, is assisting the family with local arrangements.
Dru was born August 12, 1970 in Peoria, the son of Charles R. and Patricia L. (Dean) Diekhoff. He was educated in Delavan schools and graduated from Delavan High School in 1988. He attended Western Illinois University in Macomb and received his bachelorís degree in business in 1992. He moved to Cambridge in 1995. Dru was currently working as the purchasing manager for QCA Pools and Spas in Bettendorf.

Those surviving are two sisters and brothers-in-law, Sheri L. and John Federice, Jacksonville, FL, Penny and Pete Ford, Cape Girardeau, MO, a brother, Trent Diekhoff, Divide, CO, four nieces, and a nephew. His grandparents, his parents, and a niece preceded him in death.

I might just cry now!

Rock, I moved down here (SouthEast Kansas) from the area of North Platte, NE. The differences in when what will grow is astounding. Our ground doesn't ever seem to freeze...unless it's the top few inches in EXTREME cold (for here) as we had a couple weeks ago. I can transplant things in January, something that was completely impossible as far north as North Platte. Now Ginger, living in the CO mountains, would have an even colder winter than North Platte. Believe her when she says that it won't work there. We have it so easy down here...there is no comparison. :eek:


TOTD: I almost always miss TOTD threads, so have no opinion. :D



On edit...I wouldn't blame you for shedding tears, Rob. It might help some, you know. Prayers for you all...

Maybe if Ginger and Rock end up in the Thunderdome I will feel better. :D
