this is too funny!

I have to admit it is the best version of head shoulders knees and toes I have heard. (not that I have heard all that many)

ps. yes I am still obsessed with u2.
araider feel free to make fun of them as you always do.

How funny was Bush? Was he doing his own thing in defiance or was he just confused and inept? Hmmm.

Btw, if there's one thing that defines Strider, it's his obsession with U2. He drove clear across the country by himself (he did meet up with friends at the other end) to see that leg of the tour after seeing them at every show for the same tour in the tri-state area he could get tickets for. And that's after seeing them a gazillion other times at their previous tours. He even has a U2 signature IPod.

Hysterical, Strider. Don't you ever get tired of mocking the President? Me either.

By the way, I saw U2 on the War tour. The Unforgettable Fire is still my favorite album of theirs.

Pretty dang funny.

I suppose there are worse things than being obsessed with U2. i don't know, maybe porn addiction?

Right on, Doug! The Unforgettable Fire is an amazing album. "Pride" is simply one of the greatest songs ever recorded and "Wire" rocks. But "The Unforgettable Fire" has long been my personal favorite U2 song. Although, "Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own" from How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb (an album that's grown on me) is running a very close second now.

Nedhead, you mean porn addiction is a bad thing?

The bonus of this is the the president. Sar: I think he was just confused and inept.

Now Sar. Just some corrections about Strider's obession. He drove to FL by himself to see the opening show of the last tour (Bad Wife...Forgets the name of the tour). Then he went to probably about 5 or 6 shows in the tri-state area. However, this tour he's only gone to 1 show. And no plans of another. That's what happens when you get out of the music business. Anyone got tickets for poor Strider? Will travel.

Mrs. Strider (sis in law) - thank you for correcting me though it still paints the picture of his obsession. However do you put up with him?!

Today is Nedhead's Birthday? Sing I must...

Happy Birthday to you
You live in a zoo
You look like a monkey
And you smell like one too.

My little 2nd grader just learned that at school, tee hee! Kidding aside, a very happy birthday to my favorite of Strider's friends. :)

Sar: MMM How do I put up with Him?
Work, baby showers, bridal showers etc.. Anything that gets me out of the house! LOL

Just to clarify, we're not sure if Nedhead's birthday was yesterday or today. Strider and I disagree.

Nedhead: Which is it? Yesterday or today. I want to prove to Strider that I'm right. Please oh please.

The link to the children's song was--unprecedented. How Bono sang that sounding so serious is a real wonder.

Thank you for remembering, and thanks for the song. It would have been funny if not so true (the smell part)!

Not a U2 fan at all, but that was still pretty amusing. And Happy Birthday, nedhead!

(Any other upcoming SD birthdays that we should know about?)

Blogger Sar said...

Good question, TLM. My b-day's not until...4/7. But I would also like to know when our other SD friends' b-days are so we can properly them celebrate here. That said, I think everyone should email me ( with their b-day. Including you, TLM! :)

(Btw, TLM, I commented on your Nip/Tuck posts today. I know, a bit after the fact, but I just watched it on tivo last night. AND I was so thinking about you when I just watched Boston Legal, also tivo'd. I really want to find the transcript, or better yet video clip, of Alan Shore's closing summation/rant about the hypocricies of the war in Iraq and post it!)

That's great!

You know, we sing this song to our dog (Anex Snoopy Pez) with the lyrics:

Head and shoulders, stinky toes!

I like the cartoon purple sunglasses. :)

U2 is (are?) a great band.
I saw them for the first time in 1984 at the Civic Center in San Francisco.
Then several times over the years after that.
Considering how long they've been around, it's amazing they are still together making music, particularly with all 4 members intact.
They're greatest moments in the early days are October and Unforgettable Fire.
Of their latter work, I REALLY like All that you can't leave behind.
I need to let the newest one grow on me..

Pest control in the perennial garden
If you have any good tips please post them on my blog

One of the many advantages of growing perennials is the ability of these beautiful flowers to return to full bloom season after season. While this ability to bloom repeatedly is one of the things that makes perennials so special, it also introduces a number of important factors into your gardening plan. One of the most important of these is a proper pest control regimen.

While a garden full of annuals starts each season as a blank slate, the perennial garden is essentially a work in progress. The fact that the plants stay in the ground through winter makes things like proper pruning, disease management and pest control very important. If the garden bed is not prepared properly after the current growing season, chances are the quality of the blooms will suffer when the next season rolls around.

One of the most important factors to a successful perennial pest control regimen is the attention and vigilance of the gardener. As the gardener, you are in the best position to notice any changes in the garden, such as spots on the leaves, holes in the leaves, or damage to the stems. Any one of these could indicate a problem such as pest infestation or a disease outbreak.

It is important to nip any such problem in the bud, since a disease outbreak or pest infestation can easily spread to take over an entire garden. Fortunately for the gardener, there are a number of effective methods for controlling both common pests and frequently seen plant diseases.

Some of these methods are chemical in nature, such as insecticides and fungicides, while others are more natural, like using beneficial insects to control harmful ones. While both approaches have their advantages and disadvantages, many gardeners prefer to try the natural approach first, both for the health of the garden and the environment.

There is an additional benefit of the natural approach that many gardeners are unaware of. These days, it is very popular to combine a koi pond with a garden, for a soothing, relaxing environment. If you do plan to incorporate some type of fish pond into your garden landscape, it is critical to avoid using any type of insecticide or fungicide near the pond, since it could seep into the water and poison the fish. Fish are extremely sensitive to chemicals in the environment, especially with a closed environment like a pond.

As with any health issue, for people or plants, prevention is the best strategy to disease control and pest control alike. The best defense for the gardener is to grow a garden full of the healthiest, most vigorous plants possible. Whenever possible, varieties of plants bred to be disease or pest resistant should be used. There are a number of perennials that, through selective breeding, are quite resistant to the most common plant diseases, so it is a good idea to seek them out.

Happy gardening,
