    Default TGIF and crickets for breakfast!

    TGIF and crickets for breakfast!

    No cause for alarm! Only because of the nicest/coolest day of summer,
    yesterday that I opened every window in the house and this morning I had
    crickets in my closet.

    I thought, oh great!

    I poked around and couldn't fine a single one.

    On my way down to the kitchen, it became obvious that it was "cricket
    surround sound" echoing throughout the house through the windows. It was
    so kewl!!! There were crickets chirping all around everywhere I went.

    Luckily, no lions, tigers or bears (nor bats in my belfry) to disturb a
    simply fine creamed chipped beef on toast breakfast along with a tall
    glass of ice cold OJ and multivitamin.

    They've quieted way down since the sun's coming up.

    Got crickets?

    You?

    At least you're not washing down your **** on a shingle with Gatorade
    or Bud Light. At least not this time.

    No breakfast yet, just breakfast appetizer, two ears of corn, cut off
    the cob, cooked on stovetop with ~1/2 cup water, ~1T sugar, ~1/2t salt
    and a couple twists of the pepper mill. Two pats of butter at the end
    of cooking.

    Oh gag! If your local corn is that bad...

    The corn I get around here is sweet enough without adding sugar to it!

    The best part of city life is the peace and quiet! I slept like a
    baby my first night in the city, because I didn't have to listen to
    frogs and crickets all night long.

    <laughs> That was funny!

    I find those noises to be more peaceful than engines and sirens... :-)
    I live in town too so only get the crickets.

    sf,

    My peace and quiet came after leaving the helicopters, gun fire,
    ambulances and road horns of Los Angeles.

    Best,

    It had been in the fridge several days. You're very extreme on cane
    sugar. It was 1 T for two large ears.

    Not an issue. We have ordinances about noise. Private ambulances
    aren't allowed to race down streets with their sirens blaring just to
    transport a patient from here to there. The fire department is the
    first responder to a 911 type emergency anyway (EMS). 1.6 million
    calls per year and only 6% of those requiring hospitalization have to
    be transported with lights and sirens.
    http://www.uctv.tv/search-details.aspx?showID=14836 Look at the way
    the explosion and fire were handled in San Bruno yesterday and you'll
    get the picture. Some victims went to the local hospital, some went
    to the burn center and others went to SF General.

    Yes I am. And for good reason.
    I don't let fresh corn sit around that long. :-)
    Even when it's 5 ears for $1.00 like it was last week.

    Heh! Sirens are not restricted around here. My house is well insulated
    tho' so they are not bothersome.

    I find it amusing when my dogs howl like the little wolves they are out
    in the front yard when sirens are approaching. They hear them long
    before I do!

    yard. Sweet silence.

    That's 'cause you gave them up. ;-)

    The howling lasts less than 5 minutes, and I don't leave them out at
    night!

    The Pitt Bulls next door that bark all hours of the day and night that
    are left outside 24/7 are far worse.

    Our neighborhood is quiet and peaceful, there are no barking dogs. A
    new house was built 2 doors down, and the new neighbors have a dog, who
    likes to bark. That lasted about two-three weeks and now the dog is
    quiet. I hope he is okay, but I am glad I don't have to hear him
    barking. This reminds me of a dumb blonde joke.

    A blonde and her husband are lying in bed, listening to the next door
    neighbor's dog. It has been in the backyard, barking for hours and hours.

    The blonde jumps up out of bed and says, "I've had enough of this". She
    goes downstairs.

    She finally comes back up to bed, and her husband says "The dog is still
    barking, what have you been doing?"

    The blonde says, "I put the dog in our backyard; let's see how THEY like
    it".
