    Roof deck party!

    I forgot to clip in her house so that it does not move when she is digging inside of it. She somehow shimmied up the back and was able to get on the roof. She’s very proud of herself.

    The coolest jobs?

    Man you guys all do some interesting things. I've been in title insurance for more years then I care to disclose. I review surveys, plats, land records etc to insure large commercial construction projects and purchases. It is kinda neat sometimes reading handwritten deeds and records from as...

    Do you cool your soaks in the summer?

    In the last 10 years I have only seen one of my Russians drink once. They have access to water at all times and I soak only once or twice a month. When i soak them while they are living outside I just let the water sit in the sun for an hour or 2 then put them in it.

    Growing greens in Cinder Blocks.

    Yeah I get my pots at flea markets or yard sales, if you have a Big Lots or other super discounted store you can find good deals. The big box stores charge way to much for them. I have done the cinder block planters and the only issue I had was just watering enough, the cinder blocks absorb the...

    Smoking Marijuana in the same room

    Thanks, I would hope anyone partaking would know and understand the risks. I was offering the OP a solution for their stoner den/tort enclosure dilemma. Easiest fix = move the moon cabbage outside.
