I just read on the Interwebs that the average household mattress contains 2 million dust mites.
I don’t share this because misery loves company.
I just wonder:
Where did dust mites live before mattresses were invented?
Mattresses with linen or cotton covers didn’t appear until the mid-18th century. Were dust mites nomadic before that time? Did man’s invention change their way of life? Make them fat and lazy?
Are dust mites bigger and scarier now then they used to be??
I won’t be sleeping tonight.

A chance viewing on the great Google machine inspired the question:
With all the bizarre holidays out there, why don’t we celebrate Funny Chalkboard Sign Day?
There are so many really funny chalkboard signs outside bars and restaurants…and I think they deserve some recognition.
I posted some of the my favorites below.
Have you seen others that deserve a shout out? Post them in the comments. And look for the national holiday coming soon.
A chalkboard sign would be a really good place to promote it…

This clip from Late Show with David Letterman has been circling around the Interwebs today and made me laugh.
Of course it did. It’s a classic Stupid Pet Trick.
Now…didn’t that do you some good?

I found this ridiculously cute mouse on the Interwebs today, and added the word balloon (’cause it looks like he has something to say).
Can you help?

I’m a homeowner who tries to be handy. When that fails…
I call Ed.
So I loved this tip I picked up on the Interwebs about dealing with stripped screws. (If you’ve known this for years, bear with me because it bears repeating for folks like me.)
To remove the stripped screw, simply place a rubber band over it. Then use your screwdriver to unscrew it.
The rubber band should provide enough grip for you to ease the screw right out.
You’re not reading this anymore, are you? You’re taking care of all those dodgey screws in your house!
Sorry, Ed — we’ve got this one.

A good friend of mine always celebrates ‘Turtle Tuesday’ on Facebook.
(He posts photos and everything.)
Today I decided to take a tour of the Interwebs…to see for myself if it’s truly ‘all about turtles’ on Tuesday.
This little guy — and a few of his older and wiser friends — informed me it’s really…
And I am certainly not going to argue with that.
I’ll let you know if David changes his mind.
