8-pointed Star

Random & Disjointed

I finished Jayne Hat #2 today. Go me!

After work we went back to Whole Foods to buy a cobrahead weeder and cultivator. I noticed the cobraheads the last time we were shopping, but on our way back to the car. We'd already paid for everything and I didn't want to have to go back inside the store. And I wasn't sure about spending $20 on a hand tool for the garden. I googled for reviews though and although I wasn't able to find many, all of them were positive. So I bought one and gave it whirl when we got home. I didn't have great luck with on some of my bigger weeds (thistle, maybe?), but it worked great on the dandelions and pigweed.

One of the most interesting shows I've found on tv is on We - The Secret Lives of Women. It's nonfiction and covers a wide variety of topics. The one I'm watching now is on women in Polygamous cults. I thought I knew a fair amount about FLDS, but I had no idea how many babies and young children died in the compounds on an annual basis. It's horrific.
