LinkStuff – Coyotes Edition

by Mike Holman

Thanks for all the tulip-saving suggestions from last week.  We are in the process of buying blood meal, garlic, a gun, a coyote, a dog, several hens, lots of beer and a couple of redneck armed guards.  🙂

Thanks for the double mention Mike. Good luck with your tulip saving exploits, I hope they are worth it 😉

Thanks for the mention Mike! $10 per month isn’t a big savings per se but the 300GB limit is a huge improvement. Besides, like one of those Seinfeld episodes, I cancelled with Bell out of spite 🙂

3 Michael James

I think the key to all investing advice is that it applies only some of the time. Thanks for the mention, Mike.

Hey Mike,

I’ve heard cayenne pepper mixed with water, works well (for saving your tulips).

Then again, you have a gun and a coyote now. That should cover it 🙂

Have a good weekend!

just a note about the cayenne and squirrels– the cayenne trick can blind the poor creature. don’t use cayenne to deter them or the powder can end up on their paws, into their eyes and you can imagine the pain you are inflicting. Just buy some tulips and keep them in your home in a vase. Please.
