My 3 Songs 12/14/05

Well here we go again another My 3 songs.
This one was suggested by a listener and he got a free pizza for the great idea.
Here are the songs:

  1. My Generation - The Who
  2. Sussudio - Phil Collins
  3. Bad To the Bone - George Thorogood.
Would you like the answer? Okay, but first let me explain the smiley you see at the right. This is the Bon Jovi "Have a Nice Day" smily/smirk. It has absolutely nothing to do with tonight's contest, I just like the idea behind the smiley and the song just proves that Bon Jovi are still rocking. Plus, I dig a little sarcasm, okay a lot of sarcasm.

Okay now for the answer....the songs all have some sort of stuttering going on.
So stuttering is the answer.

Friday, December 02, 2005


Okay...the weirdness has been unleashed. My friend, Pete Chaston, and his cousin Walt Groditski have been recording some of the weirdest sounding stuff for a few years and, well, let's just say the last time this was unleashed on the Earth a meteor struck. Anyhow, it is extremely fun music. They have a Dr. Demento holiday favorite with "We Burned the Christmas Tree" and that song was recently like the #4 most downloaded song on Thus proving that the world is just like me, getting weirder with age.
Honestly you must have all their cd's in your collection, they are fun at parties and great ways to get rid of those in-laws.
Check them out:

  1. Captain Fantastic & the Brown Dirt Cowboy - Elton John (yeah, I like this song, so what?)
  2. Born To Run - Bruce Springsteen
  3. Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd
Wanna know the answer?

Do you really?

Of course this is kinda cheatin'.

Okay the answer is:

They are all title tracks from the albums.

Just a few questions

1. Why all this uproar about bird flu?

2. Why is this Tamiflu product being touted as a panacaea? (especially when it doesn't fight bird/avian flu)

3. Why is it that Donald Rumsfeld owns millions of dollars worth of stock in Gilead Sciences (the makers of Tamiflu)?

4. Why is George Bush ready to declare marshall law to fight a flu that has yet to be proven to infect humans?

5. Where is the media/press when they should be revealing these things and not scaring the public about a fake pandemic?

New Spider-Man Villain

Sony Pictures has officially announced the new Villain in the upcoming Spider-Man 3 movie.

Thomas Haden Church as Flint Marko aka The Sandman.

He was Ned in TV's Ned & Stacy, but my favorite church role on TV was that of Lowell Mather on "Wings"

He was death's assistant in "Monkeybone" a movie that could have been sooo much more.

So look out for the next Spider-man movie.

Actually the best part of the movie, in my opinion, will be the introduction of Venom, portrayed by "That '70's Show" lead actor Topher Grace. Also Dylan Baker will be back portraying Dr. Curt Connors, whom we all know is destined to be The Lizard.

A little rant about this war in Iraq

Okay recently on the news I had heard that several military personnel from Ohio were killed in action. To which our fearless leader said something to the effect of : The only way to avenge the death of these soldiers is to keep fighting in Iraq.
Now, is it just me or is there some sort of odd conflict of data/logic here? I mean really upon hearing this my positronic brain has locked up. The only way to avenge the death is to send more to die? I don't get it.
Okay now there are several reasons to protest this war but really...where is the logic? My poor relays in my positronic brain have been convulsing ever since we went to Iraq to get Saddam and get back at the terrorists led by Bin Laden who live in Afghanistan. Where is Bin Laden? oh yeah...he's on dialysis somewhere planning bombings all around the globe.
Hey did you hear about London getting bombed twice?

Howie Day

Alright, when I first heard Howie, I heard the song, Perfect Time of Day. I immediately thought, "Hey who is Bono singing with?" But then we got the single @ WAKO and I said who is this Howie Day feller, he is awesome. Well I looked in our back catalog of music and found the song "Ghost" and then wondered how I missed that one. Immediately I began playing those two songs on air in a heavy rotation. And now he's taking the world by storm with another great song: "Collide." Let me tell you this is one guy you don't want to miss.

Yes at first he sounded to me a little like Bono from U2, but then you listen to the other songs and he is very unique. Very good music...Great Lyrics and a Great Voice. Something different. None of this typical growl that has been perfected by Eddie Vedder in which all musicians are doing. A voice that sounds trained. Besides that he's from the part of the US which bred Stephen King. Ayuh, Howie's from Bangor, Maine.

He tackles the subjects of Love, Loss, and Regret but in a poetic way...not pop. And you know how much I hate pop.

I haven't done the research yet but musically, I'm talking instruments not words now, his music has depth, so I'm thinking he uses some sorts of orchestral backing.

Check him out on tour, I hear he's great live, but alas, doesn't come close to small town midwest for me to see.

Also you can click below and buy one of his albums. You can even hear his cover of the Beatles' "Help" on the I Am Sam Soundtrack

These are must haves in your collection.

Thursday, June 23, 2005


Okay before we go any it's not the Lion from the Chronicles of Narnia.

Have you heard this girl? What a voice.

At WAKO we got the single "Be The Girl" And I gave it a listen. And Immediately was sold.

Not only does she have a great voice...but the lyrics even seemed to have a deeper non-pop music feel to them. And let me tell you it is so refreshing to hear a new female vocalist not singing about crap we don't care about.

Then I heard she was out touring with Gavin DeGraw and thought, "Now there's a great combination" But alas I'm here in the middle of the midwest where no touring artists visit.

Side note here:
All you musicians (only the good ones, like Gavin, Aslyn, Howie Day et. al.) you are missing a great piece of your audience. I mean really, right here where I play your music you have Vincennes University...and the midwesterners that would love to see you in person.

So if you haven't heard this phenom of can listen to my show on WAKO where I play her music every night. Also you can click below and buy the album Lemon Love:

Just wanting to pass along something great that you don't want to miss.

My 3 Songs 06/22/05

Okay this one will be interesting.

First of all they are all Who songs...that is not the answer.

  1. Who Are You - The Who
  2. Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who
  3. Baba O'Riley - The Who
The answer

They are all from one of the last bastions of creativity left on Television.

Theme songs from CSI shows on CBS

  1. Who Are You - The Who CSI (the original from Vegas)
  2. Won't Get Fooled Again - The Who CSI:Miami
  3. Baba O'Riley - The Who CSI: New York

Just a little rant before I come up with a My 3 songs

After all the lawsuits poor old Ronald

Okay first of all let's get one thing straight. McDonalds and any other fast food are junk food and hold no nutritional value.

That in mind if you supersize your junk you get supersized your self.

That leads to: what idiot could sue junk food manufacturers for making them fat?
Worse yet: What idiot could actually find cause and see that the junk food manufacturers pay for making people fat.

I'm really not going to say much more...because well...stupidity is the Weapon of Mass Destruction that someone needs to go after in the U.S.

Happy Father's Day

Well happy Father's Day to all.

I got my cake...(okay I'll cut out all references to creepshow) I got a really cool, pardon the pun, Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake.

And I got to clean out the guinea pig cage.

Oh , wait Isaac got me a "The Incredibles" bouncy ball...about 12" diameter. So that was cool. Glad to see he was thinking of me.

Definitely a great day. Isaac and I walked down to the pop machine, and we played soccer or some weird form of it in the yard with the Incredibles ball. He helped me clean the cage also.

So, hope all you had a great Father's day. Talk to ya later when I figure something new to write about.

Tuesday, June 14, 2005

Just thought this was a funny picture.

Here's one for all you golfers out there.

In the mean time, let me tell you about my weekend.

Well, the remnants of hurricane/tropical storm Arlene came through Illinois and left us with about 3 inches of rain...some lowland flooding...but mainly just wet.

Isaac wanted to go out and would not take no for an I never gave him the old excuse our parents gave'll catch your death of cold. In fact I did catch myself almost saying that. Yes I know, rain and colds really don't have anything in common, in fact your body getting cold doesn't have anything to do with colds. Unless you were fighting an infection of some sort already but being in the rain doesn't directly cause colds or pneumonia.

So anyway i told him his clothes would get wet and he would have to change them...knowing how much he hates to change clothes...well next thing you know, he has a towel over his head. It's funny because he's just playing with the warm towel fresh out of the dryer...and you can see the thought process in his head and when the light clicks on...and then he's slowly walking towards the door with the towel over his head. (sneaking i think) He then makes his way across our yard to his tree....He has a tree in the yard that he climbs CONSTANTLY.

On the way the towel gets soaked and so as he gets to the protective canopy of the tree...he drops the towel...good idea but short lived. His sister then "rescues" him by bringing out an umbrella...and they both proceed to sit in lawn chairs in the rain under an umbrella.

Can you tell me what answer I could give to "Why can't I play in the rain?"

New Website

Well what do you think of the new site?

I've been teaching myself some new web development techniques and programs and the new is the result.

It's been kinda fun and frustrating.

Fun because I've always liked learning new things. Right now I'm trying to learn PHP, DHTML, and some javascript. I just want to create a dynamic website that will keep people coming back.

I think I'm gonna go back to some of my old radio interviews and transcribe them and maybe even save them as mp3s and load them up on the site...nostalgia is fun, also.

If you have any ideas or requests to keep the page always changing and dynamic feel free to email me at

One bright, beautiful Sunday morning, everyone in tiny
wakes up early and goes to their local church. Before
the service
starts, the townspeople sit in their pews and talk
about their lives,
their families, etc.

Suddenly, at the altar, Satan appears!! Everyone
starts screaming and
running for the front entrance, trampling each other
in their
determined efforts to get away from Evil Incarnate.

Soon, everyone is evacuated from the church except for
one man, who
sits calmly in his pew, seemingly oblivious to the
fact that G~d's
ultimate enemy is in his presence. This confuses Satan
a bit.

Satan walks up to the man and says, "Hey, don't you
know who I am?"

The man says, "Yep, I sure do."

Satan says, "Well, aren't you afraid of me?"

The man says, "Nope, I sure ain't."

Satan, perturbed, asks, "And why aren't you afraid of

What is Life Without Email

An unemployed man goes to apply for a job with
Microsoft as a janitor.
The manager there arranges for him to take an aptitude
test (Section:
Floors, sweeping and cleaning).

After the test, the manager says, "You will be
employed at minimum
wage, $5.15 an hour. Let me have your e-mail address,
so that I can
send you a form to complete and tell you where to
report for work on
your first day."

Taken aback, the man protests that he has neither a
computer nor an
e-mail address. To this the Microsoft manager replies,
"Well then,
that means that you virtually don't exist and can
therefore hardly
expect to be employed."

Stunned, the man leaves. Not knowing where to turn and
having only $10
in his wallet, he decides to buy a 25 LB flat of
tomatoes at the

Within less than 2 hours, he sells all the tomatoes
individually at
100% profit. Repeating the process several times more
that day,he ends
up with almost $100 before going to sleep that night.

And thus it dawns on him that he could quite easily
make a living
selling tomatoes. Getting up early every day and going
to bed late, he
multiplies his profits quickly.

After a short time he acquires a cart to transport
several dozen boxes
of tomatoes, only to have to trade it in again so that
he can buy a
pickup truck to support his expanding business. By the
end of the
second year, he is the owner of a fleet of pickup
trucks and manages a
staff of a hundred former unemployed people, all
selling tomatoes.

Planning for the future of his wife and children, he
decides to buy
some life insurance. Consulting with an insurance
adviser, he picks an
insurance plan to fit his new circumstances. At the
end of the
telephone conversation, the adviser asks him for his
e-mail address in
order to send the final documents electronically.

When the man replies that he has no e-mail, the
adviser is stunned,
"What! You don't have e-mail? How on earth have you
managed to amass
such wealth without the Internet, e-mail and
e-commerce? Just imagine
where you would be now, if only you had been connected
to the Internet
from the very start!"

After a moment of thought, the tomato millionaire
replied, "Why, of
course! I would be a floor cleaner at Microsoft!"

Don't forget to visit my website.

Mrs. Peterson phoned the repairman because her
dishwasher quit working.
He couldn't accommodate her with an "after-hours"
appointment and since
she had to go to work, she told him, "I'll leave the
key under the mat.
Fix the dish washer, leave the bill on the counter,
and I'll mail you a
check. By the way, I have a large rotweiler inside
named Killer; he
won't bother you. I also have a parrot, and whatever
you do, do not talk
to the bird!"

Well, sure enough the dog, Killer, totally ignored the
repairman, but
the whole time he was there, the parrot cursed,
yelled, screamed, and
about drove him nuts.

As he was ready to leave, he couldn't resist saying,
"You stupid bird,
why don't you shut up!"

To which the bird replied, "Killer, get him!!!"

A college drama group presented a play in which one
character would
stand on a trap door and announce, "I descend into

A stagehand below would then pull a rope, the trapdoor
would spring,
and the actor would drop from view.

The play was well received. When the actor playing the
part became
ill, another actor who was quite overweight took his
place. When the
new actor announced, "I descend into hell!" the
stagehand pulled the
rope, and the actor began his plunge, but became
hopelessly stuck. No
amount of tugging on the rope could make him descend.

One student in the balcony jumped up and yelled:

to my husband,
"I'm fat."

And right on cue he said what all good husbands must:
"You're not fat."

To support his position, he added, "Just look around
you at others,
and you will see that you are not fat."

But our daughter, a high schooler, saw through it:

Although exhausted, when I discovered I had a slow

because I shot them."

Within minutes, there were half a dozen police cars in

Sci Fi and guinea pigs.

So it's another monday.

I got to clean out the guinea pig cage again today. What a mess...Maybe during the summer I should look into letting them stay in hutches outside like rabbits. I hear that's okay...but I'd have to get hutches. We'll see.

But that wouldn't solve the same problem in the winter.

so i guess it's just learn to deal with it.

You know what? I still haven't seen Star Wars Episode III.

What does that have to do with guinea pigs? NOTHING. But I that's just the way my mind works.

I think what I really want to do is get all 6 on dvd and watch all from episode I to episode VI
I really don't care about the big screen thing and all. I know there are those folks out there that say it's not the same unless it's on the big screen. But Star Wars was never my thing. I like it but I'm not a fanatic.

I want all the Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy books on that I'll be a fanatic over.

I also really like the Dr. Who series... mainly the 4th doctor Tom Baker I believe...the one with the hat and long scarf...he was funny. So for those of you that didn't recognize the graphic at the top of this entry it is the tardis control panel.

Okay so i like Sci-Fi.

As a matter of fact I'm in the middle of reading all of Isaac Asimov's robot/empire/foundation books. Great books. It's weird he wrote these all out of order but they maintain a timeline link.
I'm reading them in an odd order as well. You could read them in order of the time line from Robots to the Foundation series. And that's kinda what I'm doing. But I started with the combo book I, Robot / Foundation. Well this was an interesting place to start with I, Robot the robot series was beginning. The struggles of mankind creating and getting used to the ideas of robots along with the 3 laws of robotics:

  1. Robots must never harm human beings or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
  2. Robots must follow instructions from humans without violating rule 1.
  3. Robots must protect themselves without violating the other rules.
So that is the beginnning of robots...the really neat things about these books is not necessarily sci-fi about robots but the mystery of how they interact using the 3 laws. The robots book I've read are:
  • The Complete Robot (1982) (contains I, Robot & The Rest of the Robots)
  • I, Robot (1950)
  • The Rest of the Robots (1964)
  • Nemesis (1989) Not really a robot book but within the timeline.

As the robots are created to be more and more human like the books move into the Empire series...I haven't got there yet.

Now jumping ahead the Galactic Empire is crumbling and Hari Seldon is creating Psychohistory to "predict" the future of mankind. Psychohistory is mathematics gone further. So to prevent the fall of mankind Hari creates the foundation. Now I've read
  • Prelude to Foundation (1988)
  • "Foundation's Fear" Gregory Benford
  • Forward the Foundation (1993)
  • Foundation and Chaos by Greg Bear
  • Foundation (1951)
  • Foundation and Empire (1952)
  • Second Foundation (1953)
As you can see some other authors created some more foundation books...right now I'm reading Foundation's Triumph by David Brin these other Authors are writing stories about Hari Seldon and the creation of the foundation. After I read this book the next will be one of the robot books.
The Caves of Steel...then after that back to foundation series with Foundation's Edge. So back and forth I go reading Isaac Asimov. That man could write.

So what are you reading?

btw, I started reading Asimov after I read all, and I mean ALL the books By Stephen King...He needs to write more. :)

Direct-to-brain Broadcasting?

Sony has developed and patented a new technology for transmitting sensory data directly into the human brain. According to an article in the New Scientist journal, the non-invasive technique involves a device that fires pulses of ultrasound at the head to modify synaptic firing patterns in targeted parts of the brain, creating "sensory experiences" ranging from moving images to tastes and sounds.

Sony first submitted a patent application for the ultrasound method in 2000, which was granted in March 2003. Since then Sony has filed a series of continuations, most recently in December 2004. Sony describes the research as speculative.

Okay I ask is this good or bad?

As long as we can channel surf I guess it'll be okay.

Can you imagine what the new porn channels will feature?

Runaway Bride

Okay, I am really peeved right now.
What the hell is up with all this coverage of the "Runaway Bride"
I mean really isn't there any news to cover? Don't we have people dying in Iraq or something?

I understand when she was "missing" the coverage was great to track down a missing person. For once the media did a great job and wow, all involved found her.

But at first CNN and Fox news were treating this as though it were the next "Scott Peterson" story. I mean come on...let the police jump to conclusions... not the media. I thought the media's job was to report not influence or find guilty until proven innocent.

Then once she was "found" the media still covers this as a "Runaway Bride with cold feet" story. I mean jeez leave those folks alone. She had some fears and couldn't cope and left, well she's back home trying to deal with those fears appropriately. My recommendation to all media, in regards to this story:

But see now the problem will be let's go back to the Michael Jackson trial.
There's another problem I have....WHO THE HELL CARES about celebrities.
They entertain, they perform art job done end of story. Leave them alone.
Paparazzi have got to be the purest form of evil known. I mean really, these folks force stories on us about Celebs and provide the idiotic pictures to go with them. Not only that but they hound the celebs in the process taking away any chance of privacy.

As for the Michael Jackson circus, er..I mean trial, well let the legal system do it's job.
When he's found guilty report that. No one really cares what color the prince of pop wore on his jacket during day 3 of the trial.

20 years ago we would not be seeing this trial drawn out like it is now with all the 24 hour cable networks needing to fill in the full 24 hours. It makes you wonder do we really need 24 hour news? Look at what is served.

Oh wait, side note, 20 years ago Michael was still black and would have gotten a speedy trial...I'm not saying it would be fair or just.

Anyhow 24 hour news....not needed, but yes to a channel on stand by in case the revolution happens at midnight. Unfortunately in today's day and age it looks like Gil Scott Heron was wrong....THE REVOLUTION WILL BE TELEVISED...but we won't get the story as it unfolds...they'll break for he next a celebrity trial or a runaway bride or what Paris Hilton is doing now.

Okay let's look at it this way:

If the media would have spent half as much time as they have on the "Runaway Bride" story on the "Precious Doe" unknown murdered 7 year old girl in Kansas City story. We would have had that case solved in less than the 4+ years it took.

Now by no means am I saying anything negative about the police departments working on Precious Doe, they worked their asses off and then some to find the murderer in this heinous crime.

All I'm saying is that the media could have spent that air time with pictures and running around the country interviewing every person who lived in the area until the pressure built to make someone to confess earlier.

Here is my final thought.
One in which the folks it's directed at will never get it.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Wow a disney/touchstone movie that kept to the original. I'm surprised.

Yep the old Douglas Adams Science Fiction book is one of the best movies out there. I don't see how this movie could be done until now. The special effects were awesome.

Really, how do you create on-screen a planet that creates other planets, custom made-to-order. Yes I'm talking about the legendary planet of Magrathea. Where It is discovered to be the home of the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything. Oh wait the answer as EVERYONE knows is "42." It's the question we/they are looking for. And the little white mice running the experiments on us...only with today's special movie effects could we give them that believability.

One other thing the on-screen representation of Deep Thought is freakin' awesome...I'll let you see it for yourself...I won't give that away.

The dialogue was the same Douglas Adams wit we've all come to love. There were some added scenes that I don't recall being in the book/tv series or radio series but fit right in the movie as if Douglas Adams wrote them himself. From what I understand he may have. Just before he died he was working with Disney on this project. So Like usual he probably wrote extra stuff for the movie.

The "Heart of Gold" Spaceship which runs on the infinite improbability drive was awesome...although to the non-hitchiker it could have used a little more explaining. But they left room for the sequal: "The Restaurant at the end of the Universe". So go out and watch this awesome movie.

Here's what to expect:

  • Great Science Fiction / Special Effects
  • A philosophy of the meaning of life
  • A Great laugh or thousand

so go out and enjoy.

Okay, well I said that I would write up something about Monical's Pizza.
First of all I would like to say. Most areas that have a local pizza joint will say they have the best.
And I will agree. I haven't really had a chain restaurant style pizza that I've really liked.

But before you yell at me. First realize that pizza is pizza and there is no bad pizza.

You can't say that about any other food.

Wait I take that back. In Tulsa, Ok, I've had a chain pizza that is good and that's Ken's Pizza. But I guess that's a local chain so it still fits in with my local idea. There is another but I haven't even heard of it since I was 10 years old and that's Shakey's Pizza. I don't think it is even still around.

So in Tulsa, there's Ken's Pizza. In Lawrenceville, IL and Vincennes, IN there's Bobe's Pizza (different stores same family), In Robinson, IL there's Monical's and Joe's (lucky to have 2 in town). In Kansas City, MO there's Pyramid pizza. In Liberty, MO there's a deep dish place called Ol' Chicago, I believe. In Olathe, KS there's the Pizza Man...great pizza and a great dessert called Kansas City Mud. Now for the best in the world in Carbondale, IL there is Quatro's Pizza. They are awesome... I always would order extra garlic and extra cheese. Oh man that brings back some memories of teasing my taste butds. Are there any others? Feel free to Comment on your own.

So you see...the chains fill that pizza need but for great quality there's the locals.

One of these days I'm heading to St. Louis and try that one I saw on the food channel where if you eat like this 5 lb. pizza it's yours free....I can't remember the name but it looked good.

So what do you have to say?

My Three Songs

Okay tonight is another My 3 songs.

So what is tonight's contest? Or better yet what are the songs?

Well tonight I'm going to repeat a previous contest that was held late and no one got the answer.

You see sometimes there is a Chicago Cubs Baseball game and that makes so we have to have the contest late. Well it seems as though a lot of folks go to bed and the ones left awake could not unravel the conundrum of My 3 Songs for that night.

Okay here are the songs:
  1. Valley Girl - Frank Zappa
  2. Melt With You - Modern English
  3. Leaving Las Vegas - Sheryl Crow
So what do these songs have in common?

I will tell you in a moment.

First let's talk about this process.

The Prize:

A free small pizza from Larry Bobe's Pizza In Lawrenceville. Now let me tell you when it comes to great pizza we all know that the local restaurants are the best not the national chains. If you have never had a Bobe's Pizza, you need to make a trip to Lawrenceville or Vincennes. I prefer the Larry Bobe's in Lawrenceville, just something about their sauce and that sausage is awesome also. Now there is also Monical's pizza in Robinson they are great... they have a little spiciness to their sauce that I just love. But we're talking about Bobe's pizza. Maybe I'll do a blog entry on Saturday.

The Contest:

Simply, I play 3 songs, you tell me what they have in common and you win. Oh yeah, you have to be the first caller with the correct answer.
What do I mean by saying they have something in common? Well, maybe they are all from the same album, or all from the same artist, or all written by same writer, all feature the same vocalists or were all number 13 during the 13th week of each decade for the past 30 years. (that's a bit far fetched but if I wanted to think that hard well...look out.)

So what is the answer to tonight's contest?

Answer: Nicolas Cage

Valley Girl by Frank Zappa influenced the creation of the film by the same name.
Melt with You by Modern English is from the Valley Girl Soundtrack.
Nicolas Cage's career launching film - Valley Girl.

Leaving Las Vegas...from film of same name.
Nicolas Cage played lead and won the Oscar in 1995 for his role.

So, there you have it my 3 songs.

btw, we play right around 7:30 pm every Wednesday night. Unless there's a game then delayed until after the game.

Guinea Pigs

I have discovered one of the best pets for kids ever. Guinea Pigs.
Last November I got my son a Guinea Pig for his 4th birthday. Now I got this critter fully knowing that I would be the one to take care of it, and he just gets to pet it and enjoy the sheer joy of having the pet. That has got to change....he'd better start growing up, and fast...because these little poop and pee factories stink.

Don't get me wrong great pet still for kids...they are extremely gentle and they are cute and cuddly. Especially if you get the long hair guinea pigs like we have.

They are okay but all they do is eat, digest and excrete (at least to the adult that has to clean the cage).

By the way my big mistake was doing research on the internet about these guys (after I purchased one). Yeah, I found out they are social animals and require a friend in the cage. So, I had to go and buy a second one. What that means is 2 happy guinea pigs, one happy little boy, 2x the amount of waste products.

Okay their cage is clean for now. And we have fresh fertilizer applied to the neighbor's flower bed. Now time to take a shower.

Tomorrow I have to clean my 2 aquariums.
