Orca just came up with the Name and Logo for my new bait shop business: Worm Connection.

Has a nice ring to it, eh?

Lets see, 10 million night crawlers.

I'm going to need a lot of those foam containers.

A dozen worms per container. I'm going to need a shed.

SugarBear won't let me keep them in the house.

Dark cloudy afternoon here.
Easy to lose track of what time it was.
Just some sprinkles so far.

Hoping to slip through a gap.

Still plenty of time to have fun Ski.
Or just crash early.

Back on the boat, LMAO I just noticed its only 8.40 What the!

Ski,
No...you didn't tell us about the trash can cookers.
Have fun pyro.

Todd,
Only touched 80 here today.
Tornado warnings north of I-4 this evening. The latest is in Tampa bay.

Hopefully not a sign of things to come.

RTL,
The Show with the pink jolly green that I was thinking about was Simon and Simon. Wrong actor.

The funny guy from tremors was Michael Gross.

The AA-12 would be a good choice for up close and personal.

A can of Raid might be better.

Had about a half inch of rain with the system that just went by so I'll see what happens in the yard in the morning.

Or maybe I should go out there right now with a flashlight and see if there are 10,000,000 worms slitering all over the yard.

Better take the AA-12 with me now that I think about it.

Hey Arkers,
Had to hit the 200 to catch up, dang you guys having been chatting your butts off. Had to laugh at the dirty old man, ever just mud wrestle Pottery?

Engine is on and the boat is running like a scolded cat, just didn't relize how much power we had lost in the old outboard.

Did I tell anyone about the trashcan cookers I made?

Not much else going on, got a call in to work today at St Thomas Uni, bloody hell talk about prima donna girls. I drove 75 up and back for nothing, nevermind got plenty of fun tickets for the effort.

Wind has been blowing and it was hot and muggy today 85.

INDOS WORM

"In the river Indos (Indus) a worm is found resembling those which are usually found on fig-trees. Its average length is seven cubits, though some are longer, others shorter. It is so thick that a child ten years old could hardly put his arms round it. It has two teeth, one in the upper and one in the lower jaw. Everything it seizes with these teeth it devours. By day it remains in the mud of the river, but at night it comes out, seizes whatever it comes across, whether ox or camel, drags it into the river, and devours it all except the intestines. It is caught with a large hook baited with a lamb or kid attached by iron chains. After it has been caught, it is hung up for thirty days with vessels placed underneath, into which as much oil from the body drips as would fill ten Attic kotylai. At the end of the thirty days, the worm is thrown away, the vessels of oil are sealed arid taken as a present to the king of India, who alone is allowed to use it. This oil sets everything alight--wood or animals--over which it is poured, and the flame can only be extinguished by throwing a quantity of thick mud on it."

The Mongolians say that the olgoi-khorkhoi can kill at a distance, either by spraying a venom at its predators or by means of electric discharge.[1][3] They say that the worm lives underground, hibernating most of the year. It is reported that this animal is mostly seen on the surface when it rains and the ground is wet. The Mongolians also believe that touching any part of the worm will cause instant death. Its venom supposedly corrodes metal and local folklore tells of a predilection for the color yellow.

Best way to get rid of them is to draw them out with a thumper, get on top and ride them to the next county.

Shore, that's funny.
I was talking to RTLSNK yesterday and he was walking around the yard describing it. I told him I reminded me of a bad horror movie. Told him be careful, mom and dad worm might be lurking out there.

RTL,
Left you a note on Orca's. Take pics of the mounds and the worms. I'll have my brother take a look and find out for you what it is.

Spoke to the manager of the bug company that sprays my house and he said he has the same thing going on in his yard and he doesn't have a clue what they are either. That's sort of scary. :)

He said the only chemicals that he sprays on my lawn is designed to kill ants, fleas, and ticks. He is contacting a landscape company to see if they know what it is and will give me a call if they figure it out.

Hmmm, alien worms? Able to withstand pesticides that can kill ants, fleas, and ticks?

He said, when you walk on the dirt mounds does it feel spongey like the ground under your feet is moving? I said yes, he said, yeah, my yard too.

I'm beginging not to like this.

Far be it for me to intrude upon your vacation to the UK my good man, but if I remember right, the last time you loaded up on the "duty-free" in the UK, the local gendarmes caught you doing "something" off a bridge into the River Thames. :)

Try and remember that may be normal in Trinny, but they take a jaundiced view of that sort of thing in the proper British city of London don't you know.

Not that I would have any personal knowledge of that sort of thing myself you understand. :)

Lunch is over, back to the "list".

Whatnot to do, Stuff to drop-off and pick-up, Ancient Person to visit, and so on.

The pace is Increasing, as Friday is our Departure date to the UK.
It's below freezing there, dont you know ?
Ice, snow, gloom, dread.

Quoting RTLSNK:
Pottery my dear fellow, if you have bananas, you can make banana fritters. For those of you who are not familiar with fritters, there are hundreds of types of fritters. The apple fritters that the grocery store called Publix sells are baked. However, fritters can also be broiled, fried, micro-waved, and so on and so on.

I am not known for enjoying seafood, however, conch fritters are one of the things I will eat. Yes, I do know they crawl on the ocean floor, don't remind me.

Back to the fritters. You can use a variety of batter to make fritters with, one of the simple ways is to use pancake batter. Pottery, see if the Lady Pott has some pancake batter in the pantry somewhere. Make the batter a little thicker than normal, slice up the bananas in little coin looking pieces about a half inch thick, toss them in the batter and stir until all of them are well coated, then fry them in butter like you would a pancake. WAL LAA = banana fritters!

For those of you who like corn bread, you can make corn bread fritters the same way only make the batter very thin using extra liquid. You can make a stack of them to go with breakfast and the crowd will go wild!

Add a butter/honey topping or maple syrup side dish to go with them. :)

Noted, and Understood.
Daughter Nan, when she was still here, was the Banana Queen in this yard. Made everything with bananas.
This morning, I harvested 2 bunches. About 75 lbs in all.
I'm going to be eating them non-stop for a week at least.
You know that they ALL get ripe at the same time, right?

Burp.....

Looks like I'll get the skinny end of the squall line stick on that one...as usual :)
And the temps will probably drop 20F on the backside.

Let er' rip.
I've got dry firewood, rum and stuff, plenty of groceries and storm proof internet access.

No worries mate.
Had to stop and pop a bagel in the toaster between Adobe tutorials.

By the way.
It dripped all night and early this morning it was quite heavy.
The map shows that it could go away at any minute, and stay 'away' until June.


I have a busy day ahead.
So I better have another coffee.
Would be nice to have an apple fritter with that.
But all we have are Bananas.



You do realize of course that once it drops off the map, that puppy is done for???

Just ask snakerdoodles. He's having nematode problems also.

Have you tried Clorox?

Goodmorning Knotwhats and tuffs!

Just starting on the coffee and peeking outside to see that the world is still there. I wonder what I'd do if I looked out one day and it wasn't? Probably go back to bed.

Yes, we have no bananas. Nor apple fritters.

What could I possibly think ???
Painful stuff, knots......

I see that Snakeymon is is being pestered by a pestilence again.
Worms, eh ?
You need yard-fowls, my dear fellow.
Yard-fowls are those feathered things that ultimately become KFC. In case you were'nt sure....
They also make good target practice. Small bore, of course. And they provide Guano. But mostly on your front step, driveway, wherever you are going to be stepping.
I highly recommend them. Especially in the KFC format.

Its scary how I always know my name is being taken in vain isn't it?
Having a little trouble with a cat are we?
I solved that problem but I refuse to mention how I did it.
OK, OK, but I want all the cat lovers out there to know
that I read about it in a book about Cats and their behavior problems.

You go to one of the big toy stores and buy one of those
new giant water guns that the kids use today.
Looks like a space gun from the Men In Black movies.
Holds about a gallon of water, and shoots water across
the room.

Warning - Warning - if you have hard wood floors put
a sheet down under the tree first.

One of you has to then sit within shooting distance
of the tree for about a week. Everytime the cat gets near the tree you shoot water on it. After about a week the cat is so paranoid it will walk around the room on the outside just to avoid the tree that wets it. LOL

OK, now about those worms, I don't have them, my yard
seems to have been invaded with what SugarBear thinks
are Nematode Worms. Little skinny worms about two inches long. Millions of them. She thinks that is what
has been killing all of her plants and veggies.

I'm having a bug killing company come out here this week
and take a look and go Sparta on their little selves. :)

Actually I was much to young to have that sort of thoughts during the Macrame craze.

Gonna be shutting the lid on the laptop soon. Tomorrow is another Monday after all and the phone likely to be ringing at the quark of dawn. Time for a nap shortly.

RTLSNK took a nap about 4 hours ago, so he should be along to check on things before too long. Seems he has a bad case of worms.

I'll let him explain...

Hmmm...interesting idea Shore. I suppose one could epoxy the ornaments to the tree. Of course, then storage would be a problem.

Maybe if I hooked 25 ft of 3/4 inch chain to the cat and secured the other end 26 ft from the tree.

Brilliant !

My sisterinlaw used to do Macrame (Lots of chicks used to do macrame, while listening to Grateful Ded and stuff).
Anyway, she built a macrame tree, using 6 or so steel rings progressively smaller as they went up.
Put a pulley in the ceiling, you put the tree in place and pulled it up til the bottom ring was 12" off the floor.

She used to just let it down flat and stuff it in a big bag til next year. Decos and all.
