Okaaaaay, so it wasn't a couple of hundred tulip bulbs. After cleaning and dividing them, it was a couple of thousand! If they're all mature enough to bloom next year, my front yard will look like the aftermath of an explosion in a candy cane factory. They're red and white, and I didn't have a clue which was which. I'm tired and sore, but I think I'll be OK for work tomorrow.
Anytulips, I was blog hopping this morning, and I came across this from Earthbound Misfit:
Now I'm pretty sure the U.S. is going to be using fossil fuels until they're completely gone. But it would be a damn good thing if we really got with the program, and started actively using less. I, for one, would love to thumb my nose at middle eastern royalty. Why can't we, in the next ten or twenty years, have solar panels on millions of roofs, and wind turbines in millions of yards? (With millions of hybrid or all-electric cars plugged into that power?) Are they really any uglier than utility lines and poles? It wouldn't end our dependence on foreign oil, but it sure would reduce it. (I wouldn't mind thumbing my nose at the electric company too.)
