Welcome to the show.
Fire Ants Are Satan, by Jim
An innocent walk on the lawn with my dog turned into a full-fledged attack on my person by the Devil’s Own Minions, fire ants. I have been trying to destroy these rotten bastards for weeks, but the (admittedly badly needed) rain seems to have emboldened them. I am in an IMMENSE amount of discomfort. These compact little bombs of pain and destruction must be eradicated off the face of the Earth…but for now, I am going to just try to get them away from around our house. Little red jerks.
Grease is the Word
After paying tribute to Olivia Newton-John last week, Jim surprised Melanie with a screening of GREASE at a local multiplex. Some of the proceeds went to breast cancer research. Melanie had never seen the movie from beginning to end, and Jim hadn’t seen it on the big screen before. A good time was had. 🙂
The Sleeper Hit of You Tube…HOLY CRAP!
Since we decided to move the Holy Crap segments to their own YouTube channel, our viewership has doubled from what it was on the old channel. It is gratifying to see our work pay off. Thanks to all of our new online friends. The best is yet to come!
