Happy dog, moss graffiti, and the wisdom of bureaucrats

While we’re just goofing around on a rainy Sunday …

And speaking of rain, it’s often said that in the NorthWET climate, if you stand still too long, you’ll grow moss on your north side. In recognition of that, here’s a recipe for making moss graffiti. Really. Moss graffiti.

Both these finds are courtesy of S, who must have been in an unusually unserious mood.


Here’s another unintentional laugh from the NorthWET. Nothing to do with the climate this time; this one comes from government (that endless source of snorts and giggles). A reader writes to say:

The other day I got a renewal card from Oregon DMV, with new requirements for 2012. The most significant being the birth certificate; it must be gov issued. Hospital issued birth certificates are NOT acceptable.

I’ve never had a gov issued BC, so far as I know they weren’t issued in the 1st half of the last century. So I got on the net to see how I go about this. I can get one, but only if I swear in writing that I am me, with a notarized signature. Man, those ‘crats are sharp.

    I’d been thinking of having a small waterfall in my cabin eventually. I might use that moss graffiti technique on it, that would be so cool!

    Several remodels down the road, of course.
