    Bank fraud warning-check your accounts!

    I just got off the phone with the bank, my account is now safely frozen until we figure this out! I was looking at my online banking, and I noticed a charge from this morning for $4.89 from IM GAMES COM LLC. I didn't use my card today or yesterday, so I called the bank. The charge is from...

    Sleep talking! Post your looniest statements...

    Last night I was up a bit late, re-reading a favorite novel. I wiggled a bit to get more comfortable, and I guess the motion disturbed DH. He rolled over and told me, "Monkeys! There's monkeys in the picture...putting a fresh coat of paint on the elephant." More than 12 hours later, I am...

    Hyperkeratosis on the dog's snoot...

    One of my dogs, Mr. Kojak, has a nasty nose. Has anyone had any good results with treatments for hyperkeratosis? I know it doesn't actually cause any issues, it's just...icky. I don't think he has any underlying issues, he's quite healthy, but his nasty nose freaks me out. I thought about...

    My feet are wrecked, how can I heal them faster?

    DH and I graduated from college today. Yay, right? You'd think so. The walk from car to coliseum was about a mile. I was wearing my comfiest heels, but I was still hurtin' bad by the time we got there. So, I decided to barefoot it back to the car afterwards. The pavement was a bit hot but...

    Hey southerners! Anyone else want to go wash oily birds?

    I was reading some stuff about the oil spill tonight and I had a lightbulb. Let's move our BYC butts to one of the response centers and start cleaning! Apparently there isn't much need for wildlife rescue volunteers yet, because they've only found one oily gannet so far. They expect this to...

    Vibram Five Fingers shoes, and unforeseen complication...

    I squealed with glee when my new shoes arrived today. I've wanted them for awhile, and I finally talked myself into a splurge. Here they are: http://www.vibramfivefingers.com/products/products_Sprint_f.cfm I chose the "chili and peach" color, because I thought if I'm going to do wacky, I need...

    Question about egglaying

    I have done something dumb. Lately I have been collecting some strange eggs from my chickens. Too small, weird color, and very hard to crack. It just hit me that I've been eating the guinea eggs I waited a year to see. Will she keep on laying until she gets a clutch even though I've been...

    I Have A Broody!

    AAAAGH! Help! I'm so excited! What do I do? Where do I go? Do I run in circles, scream and shout? With all the wedding planning and the trip to the beach last weekend to book a spot, I've been neglecting egg duties. I haven't collected since Friday. I went out to pick them up, and there...

    I need your wisdom about finding a wedding dress!

    Halp! I'm drowning in a sea of ookie white dresses that look like birthday cakes. We're getting married in late June, and I have to find something. It's going to be something casual and beachy, with a fun crawfish boil afterwards. I am not a traditional kind of person, and I do not want to...

    Our family could use some prayers-HAPPY UPDATE! :-D

    I'm not particularly religious but I do believe in prayer, or collective intent, or whatever you want to call it. My grandmother, the most important person in my life, has to have surgery this week because her breast cancer has come back. I *think* she's going to be fine, it doesn't look like...

    In the market for a lovebird, need breeder recommendations!

    Calling all cage bird gurus! Josh and I are getting married, and I'd like to get him a birdie for a wedding gift. This is a big, tough army man who turns into a total mushball in the presence of anything with feathers. He had a lovebird as a child that he nearly gets misty when he talks about...

    Evil guinea is killing my sweet rooster!

    Help! I have one rooster, Tufts. Tufts is a gentle soul, he never bothers anyone and is very sweet to his hens. I have two guineas, a hen and a cock. In the last few weeks, as spring has begun to get going, the guinea cock has become a murderous sociopath. I've caught him beating up hens a...

    My goofy girls "held it" all morning!

    Yesterday was the first even remotely decent day we've had in a long time. I took advantage of this. I took everything out of the coop, mucked out, scrubbed down, etc. I got that sucker CLEAN! I decided to go on a walk with one of our dogs and The Man while it dried. Unfortunately, it was...

    Flying squirrel in the BED!

    Josh went up to our loft to get a book, and there was a FLYING SQUIRREL in our BED! This was immediately followed by 30 minutes or so of mad dashery around the house with a towel, trying to nab it. It's currently trapped in a trash can, I guess we'll let it outside tonight. Huh, I knew the...
