    10 Life Hacks with PVC #14

    Why thank you. I didn't think I wrote that so it was understandable. Hope you make one and use it to clean your gutters. It's also useful for spraying behind things to get the leaves and stuff out so you don't have to drag pots and things around.

    Nah, just the one male, Perkins. He was the bird who came to dinner. He was my daughters bird, and when she went on vacation I took him for 2 weeks. That was 18 years ago, he's been here ever since. He only poops in a couple of places, and down several pictures:) I love that little guy. He doesn't have a cage, I wouldn't want to live cooped up. He flies around the house and only got out once, 14 years ago. He was gone for 10 days, near death when I got him back. He's not too interested in going by outside doors any more:) He sleeps on the back of the 1/2 bathroom door. I put a length of plastic gutter on the door and he gets in there and goes to sleep:) Can't fall out of bed that way! He used to sleep on the top of the door and I nearly slammed his foot in the door, so I h...see more »Nah, just the one male, Perkins. He was the bird who came to dinner.

He used to sleep on the top of the door and I nearly slammed his foot in the door, so I had to come up with something for him. Now everyone's happy! Betsyfartblossom is my cat who has seriously pestilential, to near fatal, gas attacks while sleeping on my chest, butt towards my face:( But I love her too. Perkins taunts her a lot.

  • Harvesting Flower Seeds for Next Year's Gardens

    Be sure to leave some of the flowers with the seed heads for the birds who get really hungry in the winter.

    10 Life Hacks With PVC #14

    Isn't that great that his son still thinks his dad is great? Hopefully he will continue and they will have what looks like a great relationship. Way to go dad! You're doing a find job with that boy.

    O.k., this is too cool! I want to make a 4 sided one with holes on an angle to water my small garden. What I made - now try to follow me here:{ - is I took a piece of 1/2 inch pvc about 5 feet long and on one end put a piece of 1/2 " pvc that was bent at a near downward angle. On the other end of the long piece I put a hose connector and use it to clean out my gutters and sometimes I use it without the hose attached to get stuff out of the bushes:) I also took a large Y shaped pvc pipe and put it in my Guinea Pigs cage (that was a stretch) and he loves to run in and out of it. Maybe I should attach another piece to make a tunnel.

    Oh, about the garden tool hack. Be sure to put the pipe close enough to the bottom of whatever you're attaching it to so that you can lift the - whatever you're lifting - out of it without hitting the ceiling. Don't ask me how I know this:(

    Sometimes I sing in the shower and water gets in my mouth. Don't want to drink any of that non-potable water. My cooking is bad enough, why add insult to injury???

    Yes, it was funny, I laughed:)

    Yes, Cliffystones, it was funny, I laughed:)

    Firepuncher, just say "That's nice" and let it go. Don't overthink and over analyze stuff. When you do, it makes the other person feel small, and you wouldn't want that, would you???

    This is great! Ignore all of the snarky comments, they're just jealous they weren't smart enough to figure this out. It is not up to us to take a life, unless it's a mosquito. They start it! Catch and release is good. Oh, by the by, mice don't really care for cheese. Years ago they were on ships and that was the only thing available for them to eat. They love peanutbutter.
