My late father had a fondness for novelty songs. I had the misfortune of having a conversation with a braggart today. You know the kind that is always right, knows everything, and loves himself to a fault? As I stood there listening to this mularkey, I suddenly heard my father's voice in my head: "oh he comes on like Rock Hudson, and he thinks he's superman-he's Waldo P. Emerson Jones." I hadn't thought  of that song in years. Daddy claimed that it was the theme song for one of my classmates in high school.

I ran across a weird question on a music trivia game, but I knew the answer, thanks to Daddy's collection of Coasters songs: "I'm a Hog For You." It's probably one of the corniest, most ridiculous novelty songs ever. If you don't believe me, look up the lyrics on the net. Truly awful. Don't send it to your sweetie!

2 novelty songs that I despise: "Just A' Swinging" and "Achy Breaky Heart."

Which novelty songs irritate you?

Is there one that you like?

Our greenhouse doesn't have a misting system. It does have a gravel floor and the flats of plants sit on beds of sand. On days when the air is dry, we wet the sand and gravel. The water evaporates and raises the humidity inside the greenhouse. On very humid days, we open the windows and let the breeze blow through. The greenhouse is placed so that the prevailing winds will blow in one end of the structure and out the other.
