While I do not have an answer for your question, you did remind me of an ancient proverb; he who pees into wind shall be peed upon.

I learned that lesson from Jim Croce back in the seventies. Also, don’t tug on Superman’s cape.

IDK, probably, but here's a new related warning from the CDC.

CDC: Stop Going Into Hotel Pools And Hot Tubs With Diarrhea

ATLANTA, GA (CBS Local) – It’s almost summer and many people will be looking to jump into the nearest swimming pool, however the CDC is warning Americans that the water they’re diving into may not be so clean.

In the agency’s latest Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR), CDC officials say that over 27,000 people have gotten sick because of water-related pathogens since 2000. Eight deaths were linked to illnesses which were most commonly found in hotel pools, hot tubs, and water parks.

I cannot wake up today. I’m so damn tired. I worked this weekend, I dreamed of work during the middle of the night, and the baby kept me up more than usual. Damn it all.

Got tied up at work last Monday and missed the milk pickup.  Reordered for today's pickup time.  Since I missed last week the gallon I got today cost $23

On the bright side ordered carryout on the way from a place I've been meaning to try...Gator Jakes.  Got a sandwich call Gulf Port...tuna steak on a toasted brioche bun with cajun mayo, lettuce, tomato and red onion.  Ordered it rare.

Nice piece of fish done perfectly.  Had to be at least a half pound.  Great sandwich and only $7.99



Co-worker asked where I got it.  He went on to tell me Gator Jakes is a big Sterling Heights PD hangout.  Learn something new everyday.

Price for that sandwich was about what I paid for a Whopper and shitty onion rings last week.

Place is about a mile and a half from work. Will be stopping there again.

I’m convinced you’ve been to 90% of all the restaurants in existence in Michigan. But, that guess is probably on the low end.

Naw.  Wasn't that good, but extremely good for bar food.

Had tuna many places.  Some restaurant experiences you remember.  Best tuna I ever had was at the Rochester Chop House maybe 20 years ago.

Interesting day. Stopped to get lottery tickets like I usually do on Monday.  Play the same numbers in 5 games and get multiple draws to cover the entire week.

Got in my vehicle to leave the store.  As I was closing the door noticed a woman waving at me in the driver mirror.  Couple seconds she was standing next to the driver door smiling weirdly.  Rolled the window down.  Said she had a flat tire and asked if I could help change it.

She was reasonably attractive with a thin build and tight jeans,  Maybe late 20's, early 30's but had kind of rode hard and put away wet look.

Had to process the couple seconds of information quickly:

1)  Would help her but I'm now an old out-of-shape fart.
2)  Changed a few tires in my time but no longer.
3)  It was just starting to rain.

What came out of my mouth was, "I don't change tires anymore.  Call road service and they'll change it for you."  She walked away.

I felt bad for her.  In my younger years would have helped her out.

So you could be cooking her dinner right now and be planning to inflate her tire.

Had a parking lot experience years ago. Was walking to my car in a 24 hour Meijer lot after picking up an antibiotic for my UM daughter late one night. Noticed a chick sort of sneaking around cars. Same deal. Showed up next to my car and asked for help with something I forget now. Told her, "sorry" and drove off.

Thinking back on the location and situation, she was probably a hooker. Didn't care at the time.

Same here. It’s not a bad place, and they make good drinks. Through this 3rd party thing attached with work, I can get discounted gift cards to certain restaurants. And gator jakes is always on there. I just haven’t gone in years. Most of the restaurants listed are ones that no one knows or just meh.

It would’ve been so romantic: Right there in the rain, Pantry changing the tire, damn close to a coronary, damsel in distress sliding her hand toward his sagging buttocks, ever so gently sliding his wallet out of his back pocket.

It's kind of funny because I have experience in this matter. Sometime in 1977, junior year of high school I'm out with my buddies George and Mark, tooling around Grand Blanc. I don't remember whose vehicle we were driving but we needed gas, so we pull into this gas station off I-75 at Holly Road. We see this lady maybe 30-35 had just pulled in with a flat tire. She's pretty good looking, standing there in her tight jeans staring at her flat tire. George says to her, "need help with that?". She looks at us suspiciously, like, right, you dorks know how to change a tire. Anyway, we get busy changing her tire, figuring we're all gonna get BJs as her way of saying thanks. Ha, we're so f'in dumb. Two seconds after the last tightening turn on the last lugnut she's hightailing it down the entrance ramp and all we see is taillights. I'm not even sure she said thanks.

Moral of the story is do the right thing, just don't expect anything in return.

Starlings have discovered my bird feeders. They’ve pretty much nudged every other living thing out and eaten all the food. No point in putting anything else out until they go away, which is never. Fuckers.

"Predators of starlings include hawks, falcons, owls, snakes, cats, and other bird predators."

The question is, how do you get hawks & owls to patrol your yard?

The hawk decoy of course.

Don’t they learn to ignore the decoy though? Almost got one a few years ago, but the reviews mentioned that problem. We do have hawks and owls in the neighborhood, so maybe they’ll take care of the problem on their own. We do seem to have a lot fewer mourning doves. Hawks love those things.

I don't really know much about the declining effectiveness of hawk decoys over time.

Hawks love mourning doves because the latter are really dumb and slow.

Yep, those doves are so dumb.

Wondering if Archie McPhee sells hawk or owl heads for humans. I can sit outside and do my work while wearing one.
