Ontario residents: any idea how to help this woman receive the necessary upgrades to her home so that she can leave it under her own power while she still can? If you have any serious ideas, please contact the Barrie Examiner.

My little daughter loves Die Mannequin. Hearing her sing along to the song on the radio is pretty fun.

(Wrong thumbnail included but it's not changeable.) NSFW due to language. Good video, though.

sob I don't get jealous of lottery winners but I do get a wee bit jealous of people who find things like THIS at garage sales.

I left this comment one someone's blog, but I also wanted to share it, so please excuse me if you happen to have read this elsewhere already:

I just overwintered some carrots purely by accident. I have a large raised bed in my back yard. Last fall, I was too lazy to dig up some teeny-tiny carrots that were in there, thinking they'd just turn to compost during the winter and it wasn't worth the bother of taking them out.

Yesterday I went outside to begin to prepare that bed for some early spring plantings and I found those carrots had grown and were, in fact, ready for harvest. What a delight! A couple of them had rotted, but I got about twelve nice carrots. Remember, they were so tiny in the fall that there weren't worth pulling up.

So we had our first garden vegetables of the spring, on March break, in Canada, zone 5a. It is not time to plant carrots yet, so if I hadn't overwintered these (by accident) then I'd not have any fresh ones for months! Yes, they are sweeter than normal. Also, they needed to be peeled: the outer part was just a bit tough. But so worth it. I'll be doing this on purpose now!
