Short update  
Youtube is doing something stupid again. I screen all my comments and if something was dumb I would just delete it. Well now you can't do that. Get this. You have to APROVE it THEN you can delete it. WTF? That's really stupid and pointless. Why would you aprove it? So I've had to do that a few times already, but what I'm dreading is if someone starts a fight with another commenter to delete it I'll have to approve it which means the person being attacked will get an email and see it. So that means I have to ignore the flames to other people if they happen. Hasn't happend yet but that's really stupid. Thanks YT for giving us less control. They'd better fix that. I hate that you don't have anywhere to email them to complain or make suggestions.

And LJ is doing something weird. They're forcing all the communities to have an owner now. I got some emails telling me I'm the owner. Please, I've always been the owner. This should have been the way from the start because it's all to easy to usurp a community. Of course depends on your point of view that can be good or bad. The only one I hadn't gotten was for Florida Gardener and since they weren't sure they want to take a poll if it's me or Chris. Oh brother. now I have to ask him to vote which is a big waste of time. It really should just be Owner/Founder and admins. The name "maintainer" is dumb and confusing. And moderator is a stupid designation which means you don't really have any power.

I've gotten most of my energy back. I think I had a chemical imbalance for a while because I've been on the caffeine again. I worked a little in the yard yesterday and cleared out more dead branches. I have such a long way to go still but things are looking nicer. It's time to start seeds. I just need to set up the shelves and get some blubs for my new light fixtures.

I went on a job with Chris yesterday to Sarasota. It was nice and I got some more reading done. We went to the Sound Exchange in St. Pete and wow did I ever score it big. They had the tin of Disney Treasures Goofy. It's all of Goofy's cartoons. This Tin is out of print and on Ebay goes for at least $100 and up. I've seen it up to $200 when I've done searches. We got it for $32! That's about what they cost when they were new on the shelves. Oh man. There were other volumes there too so someone must have dumped off their collection and really needed the money. That sucks but their loss is my gain. I've been wanting this for years and am glad I finally have it. Oh, one more thing about LJ. I try not to make too many new tags since LJ had a limit of 1000. But now they've upped it to 4,000 so perhaps I'll start making them more speciffic. Like I have a broad category for CD's and DVD's. I may go back and tag them for specific ones. Don't know yet. But it's nice to not worry about the limit now.

That's stupid of YouTube.Omg I've got those emails too. I'm like I MADE the group, why are you telling me I'm the owner??

Mum wants to get to work in the garden. Lol I'm always reluctant until the weather warms up.

Congrats on the DVDs! Its always nice to find a bargain like that.

Yeah it's funny in a way. I think most creators of these communities know they're the owners.

I think it's safe to start planting. I'm seeing lots of new green on the trees and that's my cue.

Thanks. I was very happy to find those.

I saw the Oswald at the store when I got Goofy. I have the WWII but haven't watched it yet. The Donalds are awesome. Highly recommended. I want the Mickey's as well.
