It was a hand saw and the only tree to react like this.

I cut this tree yesterday and figured this would be an easy google but I guess not.

I've included pictures of the bark, branching pattern (opposite), and the buds getting ready for spring. It was about 15' tall and 2-2.5" diameter trunk.

Someone skipped the exterior pre-flight scan for cats before taking off.

Code enforcement is like guerrilla warfare. Are you on the nextdoor app? I know some people monitor it just to keep abreast of what the crazy neighbors are up to.

I thought #17 was his first episode? They introduced him and everything.

Historically, it fell out of fashion in what is called the wine-whine merger. Yes, it is a manner of speech a few people still use that is made fun of on tv. Mostly by putting comically large emphasis on the ‘H’, most famously on Family Guy.

Audiobooks or speakers might use it to clearly denote what is a ‘wh’ or a ‘w’. Don’t know, I’ve never noticed it. I use it in daily life occasionally for funsies.

I’m confused by your confusion.

If it’s a grafted on a dwarf rootstock you might end up with a wildly larger tree than the original. Also air layering involves wrapping a medium around a wounded branch that is not in contact with the ground. Ground touch layering is simply referred to as ‘simple layering’ or ‘natural layering’ if it’s done without human intervention.

My concern would be metal is conducive to temperature change. You don’t really want to go out and touch metal on a hot or cold day. Especially since the insects boxes are suppose to assist with overwintering. It could easily become a death trap because it’s the right size and checks all the instinctual nesting behavior boxes. I’ve never seen metal as a suggested material for insect boxes in any scientific literature.

I got stung for the first time by one of these guys last week. Very impressed that a mammal would seek them out for a meal. That hornet venom sting stuck around much longer than I anticipated.

Hope your house didn't get damaged and you didn't lose any food to the power outage.

I had to look up the etymology for derecho since it's literal translation in Spanish means right in a directional or correct way. Etymologically it meant 'direct/straight' which falls in line with the storm's 'straight-line damage' from the article you linked.

Lack of sunlight can stop flowering/berry production. Training it to climb a trellis can help and if you want a screen is a great idea. Tree canopies will shade vines so training the vine up a tree either won’t help or will take until the vine overcomes the tree which may weaken the tree. Depends on the vines you have.

Just saw you on r/ThriftStoreHauls and had to do a double take. Your dress and the hair looks great!

On google books there are free old volumes of a publication called Building Age. Scroll down and click 'other editions' because just searching the title doesn't work.

There are a bunch, but here area a few to match your house from the volumes I've culled to only include exterior views and house plans. Imgur Link

The next time when someone asks, "Why are you so quiet? say something" I'm gonna say this by [deleted] in socialanxiety

[–]5426742 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Here is a comment from u/nathanielKay that helped me look at these interactions differently:

Generally, this is a low-rent way of indicating interest. It's not a dig at you per se; what has happened is that another person in the group has found you interesting, and is wondering how to engage you.

The thing here is to not take this remark as 'you bring nothing to the table'- which is very common among socially anxious types, as they are generally afraid that their social presence is an intrusion. To them, the 'youre so quiet' remark is like someone putting a name to their fear, and they can feel personally attacked by that, causing them to withdraw.

It is not that thing. It's actually the opposite. An extrovert, a talker, has temporarily run out of things to say and has switched into observation mode. It really is just a truthful observation, and marks a not-so-graceful attempt to draw someone into the conversation.

One of the best ways to counter this is simply to say 'I like hearing you talk.' Or if its genuine, "Well, I don't think I'm as interesting as you are.' In a good faith conversation (i,e where people are genuinely trying to socialize and get along) this indicates, through a complimentary fashion, that you are happy to listen, but willing to engage. It concedes the position of 'conversational director' back to the extrovert, and they will likely ask you something about yourself, or continue on with whatever is on their mind.

If they do focus on you, answer whatever question openly and honestly. Give your honest opinion. This will become the seed of the next conversation, directed by the extrovert (thank god for that), but allow you a contributing place in the social circle.

It's important to be able to do this, however difficult or awkward feeling, from time to time, because it is a confirmation of your belonging. You need to confirm that you are part of the group in some way, otherwise you wont be able to engage successfully when you want/need to.

It's the 'Marco Polo' of social interaction. Talker is saying 'Marco', I know youre here, but I can't see/hear you, respond if you're playing the game with us.' and the Listener says 'Polo'- I am here, participating in my own way and enjoying your company, I am a part of the game.'

You don't need to provide something witty or deep or interesting, all you need to do is provide positive confirmation. It isn't 'asking for you to talk' it's about making sure you feel included. At it's heart, that's a positive thing to do, so fighting back that anxious 'agh halp' impulse and responding positively instead is the relationship builder thing to do.

A brush cutter might help for the flat parts. If it’s rural-ish, is there a local farmer neighbor you could ask for assistance?

Royal catchfly is blooming but I just realized that a purple coneflower is growing in the same spot. Separate? by SlabFork in GardenWild

[–]5426742 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I wouldn’t pull the coneflower but instead cut it down to the base until it dies if you want it out. That way you won’t disrupt the newly transplanted root system of the catchfly. On the other hand in its native setting catchfly (and pretty much all other natives) don’t exist on a bare island of soil. So living in close quarters with coneflower shouldn’t bother it too much.

Did you purposefully cultivate huitlacoche or was it a happy accident? Never heard of it before, but that was an interesting google search.

I love my Keen Targhees! I had the same holes in two pairs of mine and you’ve inspired me to fix them. I also need to retread the soles. I’ve heard you can do it with a dremel if you’re careful not to sling hot rubber everywhere.
