AstralSmoke comments on Jun 4, 2018:
Guess she got tired of the light coming through.
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.

How often do you say WTF!
AstralSmoke comments on Jun 3, 2018:

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.

AstralSmoke comments on May 30, 2018:

The male moth has been observed to 'smell' the pheromone release up to 23 miles, which is a several day fly time. The pretty one's the girl! The males resemble a poisonous pipevine moth? FYIs!
