bit of a double purpose post today,
I went to my preferred used book store and hit pay-dirt. I collected about 11 of the Ballantine Adult Fantasy books.. some I already had but not in that format and some I didn't have.. so now I have all of the William Morris, E.R. Eddison and James Branch Cabel volumes along with a few other assorted one offs.
I think on the whole I have about 1/3rd of the series.. some of them are just rare.. and cost more than I'm willing to pay for a paperback book....
I also went to Goodwill and found an Arkham House first edition of The Mind Parasites by Colin Wilson.. which is much better than my normal haul of Forgotten realms and Dragon lance books that I'm never going to get around to being bored enough to actually read.
onto the Uses...
Living in an old farm house (or an old building of any sort) it's an unfortunate reality that you cannot keep 100% of wildlife out. It's something that dosen't make a lot of people happy but there really isn't a lot you can do about it.. except try and eradicate them when you can.
I kept noticing that my bars of hand soap were disappearing in my back bathroom. so I went looking for them and figured out that I had a rather large visitor who decided he quite fancied the zesty goodness of my bars of soap. so I baited a trap with it, and within a few hours had caught my intruder.. he is currently no longer among us.. but my soap is safe.
I wonder if Proctor & Gamble know of this use of their product?
