I decided to give a friend of mine a domain name for Xmas. Instead of using my normal server provider (pair.net), I decided to try out Google. What a mistake.
For the past two nights, my wife and I have seen a fox in the backyard. He comes between 10:30 pm and 11:00 pm, and he seems to be interested in the birdseed my wife tosses for the birds (I know they like blackberries, but I didn't think they liked sunflower seeds too). I lit him up with a Maglite this evening, and it didn't appear to bother him until I moved from one window to another. Then, he took off over the ridge at the edge of the backyard.
Wish I could see him during the day...
It's time for the annual 'Pixie's New Years Redneck Adventures', 2006 edition.
You may remember fireworks shenanigans last year -- this year we had our explosions just a wee bit early.
In fact, it turns out that I indirectly saved several lives - including my own. I'm really, really happy about that.
