Early this morning, I went around the yard with the canister of fire ant powder I got Wednesday and sprinkled all the mounds. This stuff is hopefully better than the "Green Light" granules I was using before, considering the price. That canister was $14.95 + tax at Tyner Petrus.
Also, day before yesterday, I was really getting annoyed by an asshat running for Senate leaving recorded messages on my answering machine twice a week "begging" for my vote. I don't vote for people who annoy me, so I shot off an email to the persons website, and got this reply this morning:
"Dear Mr. Sims,
Thank you for contacting David Vitter for Senate regarding political calls to your home. We regret this inconvenience and make every effort to remove voters from our lists upon request.
I have removed your name and number from our calling lists. Please see the information below you submitted to the campaign website and let me know if there is another phone number you want excluded.
In order to ensure that you are excluded from future calls, please respond with your name, 10 digit telephone number(s), and city for any other numbers you want to make sure are taken off our calls. I will pass your information along to our calling team.
Again, please accept our apology for this inconvenience.
David C. Coons
Hopefully I won't be pestered by that campaign anymore....
