Another bug hunt

Another bug hunt

Yes, I know this is similar to the title I used when I wrote about the hardwood stump borers I find every now and then. But these bugs are just as damn scary, and this time they are inside the house. Tags: home improvement, mutant insects

Leafageddon

Once a year, a mighty battle is waged at the DrFaulken abode. The forces of man clash with the forces of nature in what can only be described as a fight to the death of epic proportions. The combatants: me and seventeen oak trees in my front and back yards. Last year I disposed of […]

Love 'em and leaf 'em

Lady Jaye and I finally got rid of our metric shit-ton of leaves that we acquired today. We’d been setting out five to ten bags of leaves a week with our garbage until we broke down and put the remaining 130 bags of leaves in a seventeen foot U-Haul truck and took them to the […]

Nanowrimo starts today … or does it?

Nanowrimo starts today … or does it?

This is becoming a bit of a yearly event with me: I get geared up for NANOWRIMO and then get sidetracked onto something else. I’m using my idea NANOWRIMO this year in my upcoming zombie online RPG, and I don’t know if I really have it in me to write a full novel. We’ll see […]

There are some things that aren’t covered, like freon removal, and parts disposal (such as the concrete pad). […]

Renew home owner's warranty?

Renew home owner's warranty?

I got a note in the mail today from the company that handles our home owner’s warranty. This isn’t the stuff that protects you if the house burns down, it’s the policy that offers limited protection if the AC goes, or the hot water heater takes a dump. It will cost $315 to renew the […]

[TIW] Stanley Tools FUBAR Functional Utility Bar

[TIW] Stanley Tools FUBAR Functional Utility Bar

This would be a lot higher on my “eventually buy” list if it had a hatchet/machete blade on it somewhere, but the Stanley Tools FUBAR is a multi-purpose tool that has a prybar end, a hammer head, and a grippy-thingy head. This would come in handy during a zombie outbreak, except for the lack of […]
