The sound and fury of the leaf blowers are a menace, I agree, but how about the never-ending,Read More silent, stealth chomping and munching of the heinous deer. Tick-ridden, disease causing, ever-proliferating and darting out everywhere to the delight of the Bambi pimps out here. Rifle, anyone?

that was a weird way to squeeze in your personal feelings about killing deer in an article aboutRead More village sound ordinances.

"They warned us!" - Yes, they did! And maybe there should be a warning label for thatRead More video. Wow. I generally like Genesis and Peter Gabriel music. But it seems there is a side of Gabriel I'm not so much into. Some see his song "The Tower That Ate People" as a mystically inspired warning about 9/11 and its consequences: "Like a wrap of armoured skin But the more we are protected The more we're trapped within" http://truthseeker444.blogspot.com/2012/04/peter-gabriel-predicts-911-in-2000.html I'm not so fond of Gabriel's use of the Illuminati pyramid either: http://jaysanalysis.com/2010/11/15/peter-gabriel-tells-us-who-made-him-big-time/

Wow! I'd be interested in your analysis of "Supper's Ready"... (and yes that's a prettyRead More bizarre video. They were just youngsters.)

> I'd be interested in your analysis of "Supper's Ready" - The previous linkedRead More references were not my interpretations and I'm generally not very interested in attempting to personally analyze the occult symbolism in songs, however, I'll offer a few points for you: 1. For starters, here's Gabriel's own brief summary of that song from an interview: In an interview, Peter Gabriel summed up "Supper's Ready" as "a personal journey which ends up walking through scenes from Revelation in the Bible....I'll leave it at that."[1] http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Supper%27s_Ready 2. There are two references to a supper in Revelation. One is the wedding supper of the Lamb. The other is the supper of birds feeding on the dead bodies after the battle known as Armageddon. 3. Section VI refers to "Gabble Ratchet" is a reference to the Hounds of Hell. A reference offers a description: "Gabriel’s hounds, called also Gabble Ratchet. Wild geese. The noise of the bean-goose (anser segtum) in flight is like that of a pack of hounds in full cry. The legend is that they are the souls of unbaptised children wandering through the air till the Day of Judgment." 4. "In live performances, during the organ solo, Gabriel would don a bizarre "Magog" outfit of geometrical headdress (which can be seen on the cover of the band's Genesis Live album)." Though there are some references to Revelation and Armageddon, the message is not altogether clear. But I would offer that Gabriel seems to be more interested in darkness rather than light with regard to spiritual matters.

I have to point out that the Southampton Post Office has changed a lot recently since the time itRead More was looking more wild. I guess they decided against the rewilding look.

They won't get anything to eat in my yard. The GD deer have been dining on my shrubs all winter.

I added a little more information to the post which is important to consider: Upon doing a littleRead More more research, I found that fungus is attacking large elms on the North Fork and that there is concern this type of fungus will attack the East Hampton elms as well.

Is it true that human hair cuttings will deter deer from entering an area?
Richard Warden May 18, 2013 at 06:22 am
I'm not sure, but it would be a fairly easy experiment. They may be deterred by the scent of aRead More nearby person.

National Christmas Tree Association recommendations on a rooted conifer being decorated indoors as aRead More Christmas tree. http://realchristmastrees.org/dnn/AllAboutTrees/CareTips/TreeCare2.aspx Disrupting the plant's dormancy cycle has varying levels of affect on it's survivability post-transplant, depending on many factors including species, soil type, climate, current local weather, etc. That your tree clearly came out of dormancy indoors for a long period of time and still survived (so far) the transplant, is somewhat unusual. In many cases, the species and location of the tree would cause the plant to be adversely affected by such a long period of being indoors. We also recommend that any rootball conifer be displayed as a Christmas tree for no longer than 10 - 14 days. And while I can't guarantee you anything concerning Martha Stewart's motivations, I can unequivicolly guarantee you that our motivation for this recommendation is NOT to encourage people to buy a plastic tree-shaped decoration instead. One other thing, the farm/nursery that dug up and sold your tree will plant a new one to replace it, just like the farm/nursery who cut trees instead of digging them up do.

NCTA, Thanks for your comment and link. II found a couple of actual testimonies online that suggestRead More 10 - 14 days is leaning on the cautious side. However, it's possible these were just anomalies: 1. "I can usually keep my tree for close to 2 months as long as we keep it watered and we pay $40 - $50. We could get them cheaper but choose to buy from the local boy scout troop in order to support them." 2. "We keep it no later than the end of January." http://askville.amazon.com/buy-real-Christmas-tree-long/AnswerViewer.do?requestId=5941276 If any other people have actual accounts to offer, that would be helpful.
