Future Friday Predictions & Planning 4-29-2022

 Future Friday Predictions & Planning 4-29-2022

Time for growing things. the warm weather that was perfect for starting seeds happend while i was out of town. As i predicted. so /i have a lot of things to do.

Lupins and echinatia are top on my list. I have a few other seeds to do and I also hav some garlic from last year that is growing that I will need to divide.

I am also going to do a cardinal sin in gardening that everyone does, I will be digging up bulbs out of season to move and split them. I have an absolutely crazy number of this fancy white flower and then tons of crocus. There is also a clump of pink flowing stars-things that I need to split also.

The 1880 hyacinth bulbs i will wait until the fall to split i think. Unless they are smothering each other.

Then the gladiolas i know i need to split because they made a ton of baby bulbs last year. there will be a lot of red and poss a lot of purple in the future.

I'm exhausted just thinking about this.

2am thought


2am thought.

I just realized after almost 30 years that an old house we lived in had an electrical problem in one plug.

It was the plug we had the tv plugged into.

The older tv started not turning off. It wasn’t just that the vacuum tubes were holding a charge, which was probably the first sign, but the screen was still lit.

You could hear when it was doing this because it was so loud that people who couldn’t and had never heard an electric current before were able to hear it. (Several of my parents friends were startled to find out their kids weren’t joking about hearing the tv/electric) I had showed my parents that it was still ‘on’ one weekend by having them stay in the room and you could almost hear the hairs on the back of their neck standing up because they got so creeped out by it.

There were always the last ones to go to bed and they used a switch on the next floor or at the door to the next floor so they never really had a fully dark room when turning it off.

This was the late 80’s or early 90’s so no plasma or LED tvs.

So after one weekend of it just having the screen glowing and seemingly never fully turning off? They decided to save & get a new tv.

After a few years it started having the same thing happen. We never noticed that the old tv didn’t have trouble in the play room.

Then we moved to CA and got pets and never noticed that neither tv was having trouble.

We moved again NY and still hadn’t noticed.

I literally figured it out today at 2am.
