Very few snakes want to bite people... they'll skedaddle before it gets to that point. You might want to look into which snakes live in your area; more than likely, you have more beneficial snakes than venomous ones. Our black snakes here will get rid of mice, rats AND copperheads, and they rarely bite people, so killing one would do more harm than good.

Even a venomous bite is rarely lethal, depending on the type of snake. Most 3-year-olds are loud enough that the snake would get outta Dodge long before the child was close enough to bite!

(Sorry, I hate to see living things killed, especially ones that actually help us!)

Which is why I didn't run that dude over with my car. (And no little kids to worry about.)

Meanwhile, it's official: The Palin's are (practically) neighbors.

Which answers the question - what do we talk about once Mattie's son is married....

Yacht rock? Bwahaha! That was hilarious, in a painful, very awkward kinda way. Thanks for sharing.

Welcome Mr. FR, and you are oh so very welcome! I'm all about the sharing. By the way I shot myself in the foot choosing that video as the spawn heard it and have been singing it non-stop ever since.

Sitting out on the deck right now until my battery dies. It's so nice today!

Dinner tonight - grilled flank steak on a bed of spring mix with homemade balsamic dressing (made by DS) and homemade sweet rolls.

Welcome Mr. FR! I'm scared to think what Mr. Coop would write if he found this thread!

I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

I suspect we'll dissect the wedding details for months during Mattie's recovery.

My hubby wouldn't write anything. He'd just shake his head in that way he shakes his head.

If I'm found dead (or raptured) I've instructed my sister to get to my house ASAP and remove my computer. And burn it.

OK, I promise this will be my last bad music video (maybe). Great song, VERY bizarre video:


YouTube - &#x202a;Numb U2&#x202c;&rlm;

Yikes Hopes - that's a lot for anyone to deal with.


Things I have learned on teh interwebz today:

1) Dew will have a new BFF soon, and won't have time for us commoners.

2) Some chicks get addicted to writing gay porn fan fiction, and their boyfriends are worried (Relationships forum).

3) I am only going to take parenting advice from you if you are a 48 year-old from Zimbabwe who has a DS10 and a DD8. If not, you can not possibly relate to me in any way.

4) Mr. FR likes "The Hof".
