Welcome to the world of the rant. I think you will find it serves a very healthy purpose.

My name is Ken and I own Wormman.com. I saw the post blasting us for not shipping your order. I just wanted to see if you recieved it and if you were happy with it? It appears that you did get it, but I want to be sure. I do care about my customers and I want to make sure you have been serviced properly. Thanks!!

Ken .. you're getting back to me two months too late. IF you're not shipping during a certain time of the year, you should notify people via email or put a notice up on your website.

I don't know which post you read, I think the 'blasting' was warranted given the circumstances. I got my worms from the Cape Cod worm farm in a timely manner.

Hello, I saw your post on Shannon Wheeler's LJ, and thought, given your name and icon, that you might be interested in a web forum for discussing cephalopods: http://www.tonmo.com -- I'm not sure how to write this without sounding like spam, but I don't have any ulterior motive except liking TONMO to have as many squid-lovers as possible (although I am on the unpaid staff there.) Anyway, cheers, and I hope this unsolicited comment isn't bothersome...

(It also sort of fits in with the "reach out to strangers" aspect of the discussion about Shannon's experience with taking the stranger to the hospital, now that I think about it...)

Hi. I was just looking at people's responses in the poll at [livejournal.com profile] lecollage, and I wanted to let you know that requests are always, always open at [livejournal.com profile] lecollage. It isn't that they're too much for me, but TONS of people have made requests, and I only post about three batches of icons per work, so it is taking a while to work my way through the requests that are ALREADY there. But new requests can be made at any time, and they will be gotten around to ASAP. Have you made a request? I looked through the request post, and I didn't see one from you. If you have a request, please do make one on the request post! (: (: Here you go:


My last eight icon posts have been requests, and though I kind of want to do some of my own artists for a change, I plan to continue doing requests for a while, just to try to knock out some more of the requests and lighten the load. (: But new requests are always accepted and appreciated. I love it when people make requests of me, honestly, even if it takes a while for me to complete them.

Thanks so much for your input and support, and I hope you continue to be an active member at [livejournal.com profile] lecollage! (:

There's someone in Gardening with a question about bee-removal. Perhaps you could give them some advice?

Date: 2008-05-29 12:28 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] squid-ink.livejournal.com
people there have provided good links to beekeepers in the area that can remove.. I wonder how the person knew it was a European variety, most folk don't look quite that close when the bees are IN YOUR WALL Lol..!!

Can I add you? I'm from poor_skills. I commented on your recent post. It might pop up in your email. At least there is someone on there that has common sense, *sheesh*!

Stephanie - it was a long time ago and I was a little kid, my perspective may well have been completely off.

I'm glad you've found peace with the situation

Hello [livejournal.com profile] squid_ink, would you like to become LJ Friends with me? I like your attitude to science in the garden.

I've hesitated to contact you, because recently I've been ill (multiple sclerosis in relapse) and my recent Friends-only posts have been mostly about that. But [livejournal.com profile] gardening has been cheering me up greatly! and when in remission I'll have plenty to say about my allotment.

aw, I'd love to! I'm sorry to hear about your MS, it sounds so debilitating but I would love to hear about the 'lottie' :)

Hey it's dazey. My name change bumped me off your friends list. Add me back?

Also, who is that interesting group in your friends only banner photo?

Date: 2010-06-14 01:27 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] squid-ink.livejournal.com
ooh, I like the new name!

The photo is my husband's, it's from a trip he took to Turkey when he was 18. He's the one who looks like charlie manson, in the middle (thankfully he had a different haircut and no beard when I met him, I'm not sure I would have gone out with him if he looked like this. Yes I'm shallow... but he looks crazy)

I don't know I'd say "shallow," even without knowing you much or well. There's an actor on television who strongly resembles a former SO of mine who's now deceased, and it's really unsettling.

I'd love to ask to friend and be friended. Save yourself the trouble of typing the "dull" caveat: that's my line. My journal is dull, but you'll be welcome if you permit me to add you and if you choose to be added in return. We've got Eliot Coleman in common---in a manner of speaking.

Bee Question

Date: 2011-05-05 12:26 pm (UTC)
From: [identity profile] rhodielady-47.livejournal.com
My big apple tree and the three saplings have all bloomed now.

I'm worried about them though: How warm does it have to be before the bees can do a good job pollenating a fruit tree?
I have had to mow the grass while wearing a jacket this week.
I think the weather has also caused many of my daffodils to fail to make seeds this year. The plants have set these huge seed pods which have nothing in them. (Perhaps it's because of too much rain?)

above 55F and sunny should do the trick. Its amazing how warm a sunny spot can get. I know here it's 45F in the shade but in the sun its quite comfy.

there are many other pollinators though (wasps, other types of bees (not honeybee))

if you have fruit trees you may want to consider getting some mason bees. Not sure where to get them, there are a few suppliers out there. They're solitary bees and do not need a hive, they're fruit pollinators

no worries. I'm sure the pollinators are hard at work for you :)

thinking warm sunny thoughts for you!
