Some things are really easy, some things are hard.

Teaching myself WordPress.

I know Dreamweaver, Photoshop, Flash, how to do Gif’s…Final Cut Pro, basic HTML, some basic Visual Basic etc etc.

So this ain’t nuthin new. Course it doesn’t help that before I even learn it – I’m tweakin it.

 

Do you fight with the squirrels over fruit?

New Age Scare Crow

I do.

They win.

But I’m making headway with the birds.

Today I hung CD’s I didn’t use anymore. It works! Tie them up like Christmas ornaments, but with lots of slack, so they blow and flicker in the breeze. The catch of the light and constant movement scares the birds away from eating my grapes as they ripen to that beautiful purple color.

The squirrels?  I’m going to get a hi powered BB gun to take care of  them. Or even better. The NY Times had an article about eating invasive/overpopulated species. And I know my fluffy hood rats are well fed. Often, by some well meaning neighbour. I know this?Cause I find the peanut shells littered on the ground and these squirrels are fat.

 

Does squirrel taste like chicken?

 

Welcome to Janet’s House!

It’s time.

Time to start a blog. And god knows I’ve got plenty to say. So bare with me as I morph this into what it ultimately ‘will be’.

I think I will leave my acting accounts to my website and facebook feeds. So this will be about my other pursuits in life. See as listed under about me. Short accounting of those? My anarchist lifestyle encompassing cooking, gardening, artistic endeavours, home maintenance (which includes, for me – building stuff), vehicular who-knows-what and perhaps a little geekspeak.

But we’ll see.
