    Although in a link in the linked article, he's described as a Marine veteran?

  • My Easter Cactus decided to grow as a regular cactus for just one segment.

    The two arms are sprung so that as you push on the handle they separate, and then return to position.

    Smoke Detector False Alarms?

    My house is pretty new, 5 years old. It has interconnected smoke alarms in every room (11), as required. I believe they are all First Alert brand.

    We have been getting false alarms from them about every 3 months. Most of them are in the middle of the night which isn't fun for me, and really terrifies my kids (6 & 8).

    There is no apparent cause, no cooking is going on, no dust. They go off for a while and stop on their own. Some of these are CO detectors, but we had the Fire Department come out when it happened one time and they tested and everything was fine.

    When they are going off, I can't find the one that is causing it because they are all going off. However, on these the "ready" light blinks red if it has been triggered in the past, and every one of the units has triggered based on that. I actually permanently removed one because it triggered 3 times in one night. I thought it was a bad unit, but it just happened again at 5 this morning with a different one.

    Nobody has died in this house, so I'm pretty confident it's not ghosts (/s)

    Anyone have suggestions?

    Made some fried tenderloin at the wife's suggestion. I knew there was a reason I married her.

    Wife said I should make Tenderloins/pork fritters/schnitzel for dinner so I did. Double breaded with seasoned flour and then saltine cracker crumbs. Gotta have pickles and mustard! #cooking #deepfried #pork #tenderloin #yumyum #foodphoto #food

    Baby's First Coaster

    Went to Worlds of Fun on Thursday. There weren't any lines, so the 8yo didn't have time to worry about what it was going to be like. He said he was done with roller coasters the rest of the day, but he'd go on one again sometime.

    This year's peppers and tomatoes.

    Someone dumped their extras on us and I don't have a plot dug, so in some buckets they go.

    I have grown Romas and Habaneros in double-bucket self-watering planters before, but I didn't have enough buckets this year. This is only half of the plants we got, I passed the rest on to my parents.

    They are: 2x Serranos, a Jalapeno, a Sweet Black Hungarian, and a Bell pepper. Also 2x "heirloom mix" tomatoes, 1 Roma, 2x Abe Lincoln and a mystery tomato .
