    Patio "Pot" Gardening - Super Sweet 100 Cherry Tomatoes

    Well I told myself I wouldn't do it again - but I have. First of all you have to have a really big pot so the roots can stretch out. Super Sweet 100s are a hit-and-miss deal. When you "hit" and you get a thousand cherry tomatoes - it's like winning the lottery. The only problem with SS100s...

    Double Vision

    This is way outside of Racing - but I am curious. I tend to see everything twice recently - at least up close. My distance vision is fine. At first I thought it was just the TV...but then I looked over at my aquarium and I saw two of them. Not very far apart. Note: I did switch glasses recently.

    Concerning Lisa's post - family and such

    It's a tough deal...I'm divorced and was reconciling with my wife but my daughter Melissa got involved and pushed Kathy (the love of my life who we went through the berthing process and I changed 200 diapers+) talked her in to divorcing me - primarily because she didn't like me at the time...

    Well I was heading up to my brothers' place at KY Lake and there is an area between Nashville and Paducah KY where there is basically no law enforcement. So I figured - what the heck - I have made this trip before and I figured "let's see what this little 4 cylinder 6 speed will do'' Got her...

    Back to a manual transmission - wow

    Well I thought it would be like getting back on a bicycle...you have done it and it should be easy. So anyway, as I mentioned before, I traded in my 2002 Buick Century Custom for a new Honda "Fit". Now the Honda is a pretty small car but it has decent size (around the driver's box) and it has...

    Gardening - SuperSweet 100s - Cherry tomatos

    Well my SSW100s are about 2 feet tall now (they usually end up at 9-10). I planted them in pots with a 50%-50% of potting soil and local sand. Still plenty of time to put one in if you want to - just realize they do get really big. Got my two for $3.58 each at Walmart note: the Super...
