I was trolling amazon.com mp3 section looking for downloads to get with my pepsi points.  I went into "spoken word" hoping to find lectures to inspire me (Eckart Tolle or Watts, etc.) and I come across what can only be described as
Phone Sex for Men Without Credit Cards
I was floored.  I didn't know such things existed - and that you could get them on Amazon.com with Pepsi Points!!
I'm not a prude, and this is fine and good; however, I logged out and went back to see if I could find it - yep, right there in the "poetry & the spoken word" sub-section.  So any 12 year old could access it.  :-(

p.s - I didn't listen to the clips, but from the list of "other recommendations" it appears there are several of these types of CD's available.  Funny but a little scary.

EDIT:  EMERGENCY OVER - MEDIA BACK  seems it was fully extended in restore mode and pushed ALLLL the way over to the right.  Don't know how that happened, but I'm glad I have it back.

Tearing my hair out.
Windows Media player is hidden and I can't make it come up. 
The bar is in the bottom toolbar, but when I click on it looks like it's jetting to the right side of the monitor out of sight.
It is working because when I click a music file it plays - I just can't see where it is.
I've tried everything!
Argh!

Day Off

 Did most of what was on my list today which is amazing.

* Didn't get the toilet fixed, but I did get it completely taken apart which was a learning experience (my total lack of mechanical common sense amuses me).  I'm going to power clean and disinfect all surfaces - and I think putting it back together with the new parts should be a little easier now that I know what's what.

*  Working on a bed outside of the garden shed.  Not sure what I'm going to put there.  I'm thinking Lavender out front and Sorrel along the side - or maybe something that climbs.  It'll be the end of summer before I get it all dug out and filled in with something other than the cement hard clay we have here. Here's before pictures......



* Got stung by a wasp as I was pruning a hedge against the house.  Funny thing I looked up near the rain gutter to see if there were nests (that's where they usually have them).  I was trimming away for a little while and I reached behind the plant and - Yow!!  I know that poor guy was there the whole time saying "ah jeez, just keep your trimming to the front please - oh no, she's getting closer - damn, I'm gonna have to do something if she gets any closer.....".  Stings don't bother me too much - and I apologized to the guy for invading his space.  He let me finish the rest of the shrub, so it's wasn't a bad deal all in all.

*  Another scorcher for the chickens.  They spent a good part of the day inside their coop enclosure because I sprayed down the dirt and it was nice and cool.  At around 6pm they began their evening foraging.  They are getting less and less friendly.  I wish I could spend more time with them - most of their waking hours I'm at work.  

*  I have tomatoes coming out of my ears.  I have to pic them before they ripen because of the bugs.  They taste great though even when they ripen on the windowsill.  Next year I'm going to grow them under cloth.  My Sierra melon vines have leetle mini melons starting to form.  I sure hope it does well - so far so good.

* The Texas Blood & Tissue Center called, and I actually answered the phone (usually they leave a message because I'm not home).  They need people to donate Platlets.  I didn't know what that entailed, so the woman patiently explained it to me - I burst out laughing at how she described it - and we ended up both laughing - and so I agreed to come and have the liquid part of my blood removed for good and the other parts put back in my body..... she said I have to drive to SA (which sucks) and it takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours (since they are taking out AND putting back I guess) - but they have a library of hundreds of DVD's I can watch - so yay.
