    I've seen a few license plates these past few days that have given me a smile ...
    HALDOL 5 (you must be a psych nurse! Does your other license plate say Ativan 2!?)
    XL MINI (on a Mini Countryman)
    ZPD DUDA (Why didn't I think of that? One of my favorite Disney songs!)
    LDY BUG (on a red VW Beetle)
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    Dear National Geographic,

    I find it very amusing that I can walk into almost any grocery store in the northeast of the US and buy a bag of "commercially extinct" Empire apples.

    A little more research next time?

    Got a second notice about the ignition recall. Heard on the radio that some GM vehicles from the same model years are subject to another recall addressing power steering. I called the dealer's service department to try and find out if I could have the work done for both recalls at the same time. THey have no information on the power steering recall. Right now they are primarily ordering the ignition parts for each individual recalled vehicle when the owners call to inquire about the work. I couldn't believe it when I heard that. If you know you're going to be making the same repair on a LOT of cars, would you not arrange to have multiple units of those parts on hand in advance, rather than ordering them individually?! It takes 10-14 days to get the parts from the point they place the order and they only place an order when they have sufficient volume. Then, when they receive your parts, they call to schedule your appointment. This just seems bass-ackwards to me. My car has 75,000 miles and I'm hoping for at least another 50,000 before it has to be replaced. I get the impression that GM is still scrambling to address this whole thing, rather than planning and then communicating an organized response.

    The latest rage in news reporting is 'drone footage'.

    Real crappy video from a drone that some idiot HAS to fly over an event or tragedy.

    morons.

    Why do spammers suddenly feel the need to send out tons of "pedophile" alerts -as in, "are you dating a pedophile," or "are your kids safe" when I am not dating anyone, despite their numerous offers of singles of various nationalities, ages, genders, etc. and have no children to worry about?

    Why does everybody think the new supermarket chain is the bee's knees. I wasn't that impressed.

    I'd like a new car. Actually, I'd just like to go car shopping and see all the newest models, but I really don't want to take on car payments right now.

    Now that it has been 2 years since I had my own dirt, I just unsubscribed to the Michigan Bulb's email list. This is growing season, and it was getting a little too sad! But I have my purple basil seeds, thanks, Lady's Human, and will plant those as soon as I can pick up some "dirt cookies" to start them in! I have decided the landing in back of the apartment might get enough sun to grow something in a pot, and it is public space, so hopefully it will work out okay! The stairs are rarely if ever used, so should be undisturbed!

    Why is it then when you go shopping for a particular item of clothing, you can find everything but what you had in mind and are looking for. And then at a later date you see exactly what you were looking for, but now don't want it or need it???? Exasperating!!!!!
