Anyone experienced at growing grapes?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 6, 2018:
No, I'm not, but I'll check back because I'm interested.

AstralSmoke comments on Jun 6, 2018:
They tell you that they've been kicked off and now have a different name? That doesn't make sense. would greeters know if they don't say? would they even write a greeter? I'm a little confused.

There's a cereal. It was pretty inexpensive, sort of like Sugar Smacks but without the sugar. Sometimes I smell the same smell (not very often) and it takes me back to the cereal that I liked when I was a kid.

It depends on how you kill it? Will it be done in a humane way? I usually squeeze them between two finger nails. I don't believe killing a few will change much though. Possums work well.

AstralSmoke comments on Jun 5, 2018:
Yep, it's me. I'm one of the non-photogenic multitude. Maybe about !% I'd choose to post, but only because it's sort of required.
Why do you think people are so scared to put up photos on this site or limit it to only one or two?...
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 5, 2018:
Maybe they're not photogenic, maybe they don't like the way they look and think no one else will either, maybe they are more private than the average, a million possible reasons.

Freedom is a very non-defined word. It means so many things to so many people, yet no one knows what it means. Yes, we have freedom of speech, but they also have freedom of speech. Law suits and casualties happen. Isn't this the perfect world?

Lefties, how have you adapted to the right-handed world?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 4, 2018:
I'm ambidextrous and have been practicing since a long time. Are you right footed. I'm left footed. I can use both feet though ambipedtrous? It should be a requirement in school that everyone learn to use both hands.
Aldi Solar Dog And this was the last one.
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 4, 2018:
It sort of caught me by surprise. I'm not sure how it works. It's solar powered so I'm guessing the eyes light up? The eyes are what caught my attention. It makes me laugh. No, I didn't buy it.

Do you have noise pollution around you?
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 4, 2018:
Not that bad here, yet. Everyone endures noise pollution. Most don't even notice anymore: lawnmowers, leaf blowers, tree grinders, cars, delivery trucks, dogs barking excessively, etc. I feel for you. I couldn't live in excessively noisy places. I'd stress.

AstralSmoke comments on Jun 3, 2018:
It doesn't grow like an ivy. The vertical stems have roots that grow to China. The runners resemble ivy in that they run (sprint) about 1" (~2.5cm) under the surface of the ground. They quickly engulf azaleas, etc. I haven't found exactly what it is or where it comes from from online resources.
