Tuesday Tidbits

It's been an ever busier Tuesday, and I will catch up on reading blogs tomorrow. But here are a few morsels of Hoeness until then...

- the correct shipment from Corel was here before noon today. That was FAST!! They sure did make up for sending the wrong thing and making me stay on the phone for over half an hour yesterday.

- most of today was spent getting a bunch of tomatoes ready for canning. I forgot how long it takes to do all the prep work. Here's a fun little tip in case anyone didn't already know it. To make peeling tomatoes (and peaches) quicker and easier pour boiling water over them and let them sit in it for about a minute. The skin just slides right off. (But it still takes a long time to do a sink-full of Roma tomatoes.)

- and here is some insect pornography for your viewing pleasure (or disgust)...

When I first heard the story of the ant and the grasshopper, I never imagined...

dammit hammett, A Bug's Life is one of my favorite kids' movies. What I wonder is if bugs have orgasms. They stay connected for a long time so it must be good.

mr_g said...

Yeah, if you don't mind the odd decapitation after procreation!

DHammett said...

It looks like the females are being buggered. ;P

Rae Ann said...

mr g, yeah, that's mostly spiders I think, and praying mantises.

dammit hammett, there must be something in the air around here because all the bugs are getting buggered! lol
