who needs a landscape architect?

2014-4-29

Diana and I have undertaken a back-yard REDESIGN.  Mostly, it is Diana’s endeavour.  I am there to lift patio stones.  Previously, our yard looked as illustrated; currently, our yard looks like mud.  Diana has worked as a landscaper, so she knows what she’s doing, and it’s a good thing… if it were left to me…. well, panel three is a pretty spot-on representation of my gardening desires/capabilities.

This is the 666th comic posted on wordpress!  I think it’s closer to like, the 850th comic over-all.  Craziness!

Build your own air conditioner! SAVE YOUR MONEY!

2014-4-22

There is a video that’s been hitting the viral interwebs… infact, here’s the link, if you haven’t already seen it:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HxSLbpAwibg

I’m TOTALLY gonna make one of these.  Will it actually work in the heat of the summer?  …probably not.  But really, i only need it to work a little bit at strategic times.  My daughter’s room isn’t air conditioned, and our house gets mighty warm in the summer time.  If this thing can blow cool air for like, 30 mins at night time, that would make it worth it.  Or, I suppose, I could buy another air conditioner… but i mean, it’s fun making stuff, right?

Home renovations: always a joy

2014-4-8

Ok, so “hanging up a picture” is hardly a home reno.  And hanging a picture doesn’t necessarily require a stud!  BUT!  I get so sick of stupid dry-wall anchors!  They NEVER work.  they ALWAYS fail, given enough time.  Right now, in our bathroom, our towel rack is hung on drywall anchors which are nearly completely worn out, which means every time I take my towel off the rack, I almost take the rack off the wall.  Solutions? anyone?  Seriously, i’m about ready to drill it into the door post.
