Freudian Slip.....posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 12:47
When the deer get hungry, they will eat almost anything.....this summer we had lots of rain, so there is lots of the native foliage for them to eat this year...
But for the years where the native foliage is not abundant, gardeners WILL have to do something about the deer.
Besides fences and dogs (not a guarantee there even) there are a few things that may deter them:
Stinky plants like mentioned in the article (add marigolds to that list)
For the plants that the deer love a gardener can mix a spray of water and red pepper seeds. Crush the seeds into a powder, mix with water and spray on the leaves. You will have to keep shaking the mixture to keep the pepper in solution. They may take a bite or two, but then spit it out.
And, if you can stand it.....use human urine. Male urine is better than female. Don't put it on the plants, but make a boundary line around the plants you want to save. First thing in the morning pee is best. If no human urine available use dog pee. The deer, like us, do not like the smell....posted @ Thursday, October 3, 2013 - 07:14

That is such a clustermess at Lexington/Oconee and the Loop there...who thought up that traffic pattern?
It would make it difficult to undertake something like the shopping experience at Epps Bridge at this location....that's assuming that ACC would like to have a shopping experience there at that intersection with the Loop....and receiving all of the resulting monies something like that would incur.... I know that that would mean the destruction of what is left of Tent City to do something like that....but, would that be such a bad thing?.....posted @ Sunday, September 22, 2013 - 15:04
I heard that ACC was strongly encouraged by the Feds to build, and showcase, the solar powered lights.....

This is just the first of many large, and small, business that are changing insurance conditions for their employees due to Obamacare...changes that are usually not beneficial to the employee, or or not as good as what they had...

For ACC, it is all about the money....if they let a criminal out early, they can start him/her on probation right away....save incarceration money there....
When a parolee is on probation, the probation officer keeps a (sorta) tight hold on the parolee... and why is that?....
When a parolee visits his/her parole officer, all that officer is concerned about is whether the parolee brought the fine money.....they may ask a few questions like: do still live at blah-blah-blah street?...is this still your phone number?....do you have a job or been looking?...oh, and they may ask if you been staying out of trouble as an after thought....but the parole officer's first question is always: did you bring the money (in the form of a certified check or money order) ?
Follow the money whenever something stinks.....posted @ Wednesday, September 18, 2013 - 08:45

Summary: I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
