Sometimes you see things that are so unique, so ingenious, so revolutionary that you feel like screaming to the world, "hey, take a look at this!" Not very often, of course. If you saw something that unique everyday soon it would not be so unique anymore and would become pedestrian, and everyday. There is a line that unique things should not cross if they want to be noticed, and talked about. So, here is a good rule of thumb, only see truly unique things once a week, and try to schedule them on Tuesday or Thursday, those are what we call the "Days desperately in need of help." Sure, sometimes you can squeeze something unique in on Tuesday, and Thursday, but don't do it too often, or they will start to suffer... But, that is another blog post (note to self; blog post about scheduling spontaneous occurrences,what is the optimal frequency?).
People in the city don't really understand dirt. Even in a moderately sized city like Columbus, OH dirt is not really common. The suburbs dirt are not really any different, dirt is just not very well understood. You might walk past somebody planting a garden, and ask "hey, is that dirt?"
"Why, yes, it is the finest dirt, mined deep in the rain forest of Central Asia, and on Sale at Bob's Nursery only $25.99 for a 10 pound bag."
But, my family fought the hard scrabble life of farmers in the Heartland, so I know from whence I speak regarding dirt. And this guy has the right idea!
I rushed home, grabbed my shovel, walked all around my house, and unfortunately I had no extra dirt, and even more troubling, had no need for any. I had the optimal amount of dirt, I was "dirt neutral." And to make matters worse it didn't need moved around, my dirt was all in the appropriate place. It made me very sad to call the good people at 614-555-dirt, and tell them I had no dirt needs whatsoever. They sounded very positive, and upbeat, but I think it was a facade, smiling through the tears, sort of thing.

Entrepreneurship at it's finest.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
