Holy Cow

I never knew anyone read what I wrote and then I was mentioned on a Facebook page today.

Ok, Ok, I'll brush off the dust and get posting again.

There is a lot happening with North 40 right near me, the new Netflix buildings, the new stuff where Swanson Ford was, and the tearing down of the Sisters of the Holy Name off of ...ok, it's not College there...is it?

Anyway, OK, I'll start blogging again.

Had to adjust the settings for comments

Hi, fans, I set the comment setting to require a google id, sorry to have to clamp down but I keep waking up to 20 spammy comments and it's taking me too much time to remove them. Hopefully we can go back to normal later when they go away.

I've been busy again

I'm not sure where the time flies. The kid is going to be 12.

The garden is in again, 22 tomato plants, 12 pepper plants and oodles of squash and cucumbers. I'm going to move my gardening talk to Suburban Vegetable Gardener.

And for Los Gatos. Ok, I'm supporting Mike Wasserman for County Supervisor. Why? Because he's a great guy, a fiscal conservative, and in these odd times of money getting swiped by the state and feds, I want someone smart steering the county.

Congraulations to Diane McNutt

Congratulations to Diane McNutt for being elected Mayor. She brings a level head and strong leadership. It's amazing how much she does, and I am grateful.
She still runs her own business, McNutt & Company doing PR and marketing.
And I hope she starts up her blog again.

Squirrel in the Attic

So we got our roof replaced, thankfully right before the first rain in October (and that was a doozy)

Actually I had this post written and then it didn't get saved. Lesson learned. When blogging, save regularly.

So, a squirrel got caught up there somehow. We could hear something running around on top of the ceiling. I couldn't bear the thought of a critter hurting. And I called all around different agencies.

Bottom line, if you have a squirrel in the attic, it's your responsiblity.

I started researching online to find a Haveaheart trap. I was shocked that neither Ace nor Home Depot keep them in stock! Thankfully, OSH does, and I zipped down to the one off of Branham, and they had a good selection of humane traps.


I then stopped at the Wild Bird Store to find out what will tempt the little squirrel. Answer is the same as for rats: peanut butter. I did pick up some bird seed as well.

Well, bottom line, I hope the critter found a way out because after 2 weeks, I didn't catch anything. It's now below the house trying to capture a rat. I want to release the poor thing, but I'm outvoted.

Here's a link to the Haveaheart website dealing with trapping squirrels.
