    I have a chart/pamphlet somewhere of all the ships currently (ok, a couple years ago!) working the Great Lakes and their size. They are amazing.

    I’m sick of hearing about FL, gulf coast people who live in hurricane country bellyaching about their huge homeowners insurance increases. If you don’t like it? MOVE! Same with people who live on water anywhere or where there have been lots of forest fires.

    Well, I'm in Ohio and looking at a huge insurance increase, so I'm going to b!tch about all those people on the water and in the fire zones whose insurance companies are offsetting their hits on MY dime! Ok, I think I'm also b!tching about insurance companies in general. . .

    And don't move HERE, please. We have enough people. I agree with Linus van Pelt - I love mankind. It's people I can't stand.

    . I do not want those fleeing from forest fires, rising water, lack of water and etc. to invade my little picturesque town. They do not need to know how nice it is here. Well, there are two dozen days in the summer that are miserable but the rest of the time it is fine.
    I am not a serious person.

    I would NEVER move to OH. I’m a MI native. OH folks are not looked upon favorably and OH State is the university from hell. GO BLUE!

    LOL

    Please keep spreading that message!! Farmland is too cheap here and too many people want to build houses on it. I'm pushing for solar farms on all property for sale, as they at least don't add people. LOL. Leave Ohio to people who know that a buckeye is a tree!

    Ohio is so beautiful. I went to high school two years in Pepper Pike before moving to New Jersey. It was an idyll. Everytime I drive through Ohio I remember how gorgeous it is. I also think of the Phil Ochs song, Boy in Ohio:

    Yesterday at our Iris show the weirdest and grossest thing happened. It’s going to go down in American Iris Society annals as ONE of THOSE STORIES.

    cutting to the chase: there was a dead mouse in an exhibit bottle holding an iris in the show.

    The bottle was moved around by me, show chairman, several times. The bottle was viewed and judged by a team of two people and a clerk. The bottle was viewed by a couple hundred people before, in the late afternoon, someone screeched and reported the mouse.
    The reason why no one saw the mouse until late afternoon is because an entry tag hangs around the neck of the bottle and covers part of it.

    This is a grossest thing that’s ever happened. I have a picture of it. I would post but it’s too disgusting.

    I’m torn between wanting to keep the photograph because it’s unbelievable but I also don’t want it in my iCloud file.

    Hilarious and grotesque at the same time.
    I am not a serious person.
