Robots need some Limits

Here is what happens when robots are allowed to comment:

This comment appeared (followed by some websites where you can buy some NFL Jerseys I suppose) on a very old blog.  So now I will be moderating comments on older blogs.  But still trying not to make you prove you are not a robot.  Oy.

Robots Welcome

At the request of someone who shall remain anonymous, I have attempted to change my blog settings so that you need not Prove You are Not A Robot in order to leave a comment.

If lots of robots start commenting, I wonder what they would say. 

"Danger, Will Robinson!"?

"Dave, ...Dave,...I don't think you should do that..."?

"Bleep doop bip bop."?

"I'll be back."

"Do you want fries with that?"

In any event, the person who shall remain anonymous should be happy and will now be free to comment without cussing loudly in the process when s/he cannot read the little blurry numbers or run-together letters.

Books Galore!

Friday night Sisi, The Player, and I went to the Normal Public Library book sale.  J-dude was at his first Junior High School "activity night"  (a dance in one gym and sports in the other gym in case dancing is too scary for your 11 year old self.)   The 3 of us managed to purchase enough books that when we got home I looked around and said, "We definitely need to move into a bigger house."

Everyone else pooh-poohed that notion.

This morning we got up and do you know what I said?  I said "Let's go to the book sale AGAIN!"

This time all 4 of us went and bought more books.  When we got home I said....

"Let's clean out the garage!  And then de-clutter the house!"

The Player and I cleaned the garage.  The kids have no idea what items were given to the Bromenn Thrift Store.  Items that were stored in the garage.  So not on their minds, directly.  But Sisi, with her hoarding instincts and ESP will probably ask for that one little fire engine toy from 6 years ago...or will look in the garbage can in the driveway for the first time in years and see that it's full (for the first time ever) and go digging around...

If that happens, we are DEFINITELY moving to a bigger house.
