xxxxxxxxx Non-HOA. But Totally Funny!

Well, heck, I’ll take a shot at linking it to the national HOA disgrace. One of the most unreported felonies in the country, of course, is embezzlement from Homeowners Associations.

But (and here’s my lame attempt at making the subject faintly relevant), did you know that birds can be as crooked as the bird-brains who manage Homeowners Associations?

Yup, the owner of a car wash in New Brunswick, Canada thought his employees were stealing money from one of his car wash machines, so he set up a hidden camera to catch the thief. And here you see the results: 

I Feel Like A Little Kid!

Retirement can be boring. That’s why I spend so much time on YouTube and other sites. Over a week ago I was researching HOA rules against any and all use of solar energy and came across an amazing device, so amazing I immediately bought one. It’s a solar oven that operates on a vacuum tube principle that concentrates the sun’s rays into a cooking tray.

Tuberculosis Sniffing Rats!

I subscribe to all the science magazines, and I love this story!

For many years I’ve read and reported on cancer-sniffing dogs, and African Giant Pouched Rats that can be trained to sniff out just about every kind of disease. In East Africa they’re now using the trained rats in prisons to sniff out tuberculosis. Their accuracy rate is almost 100%.

LOL!  If these rats are so good why can’t we train them to sniff out HOA scumbags?!?

Denver Snow

Sorry about getting behind on my Neighbors At War blogs but I have been slogging through this Denver blizzard. At first I didn’t think it was such a big deal, but that was before I got my Blazer and my snowplow stuck in ditches. Oh, and trying to dig out neighbors has been a huge stress producer. This really wasn’t much in terms of a Denver blizzard. We had one in March of 2003 that left snowdrifts up to twenty feet high. But this one, despite being just a couple of feet, is the wettest snowfall I’ve ever seen.

A Touching Story

Every once in a while I have to leave the HOA brain drain and just sit back and reflect. The HOA mess can make a person pretty negative. So it’s good once in a while to just rinse it all off, sit back, be amused and amazed at the good things in life. And when I run across a story like this one it needs to be shared.
