    False. But, Jordan, with your green thumb, you should have known better!! Hey - artichokes are also beautiful if dried and used in potpourri or decor. You can sell them and make a few bucks.

    TPBM spied some orchids at the store this weekend and DIDN'T BUY ANY (for a change)!

    Haha, yea i will sell them, i only wanted a couple and was gonna give the rest away to friends-i will do that and sell the rest! But i never grown artichoke from seed, and the guy who works with me when i asked him, said the germination rate tends to be really slow, and because of that, most of them will die off-i had sown a whole $12 pack (very expensive considering most other seeds are only $2-3 a pack lol-these were a brand called Niche Imports LTD) of 360 seeds, and i got 360 plants....

    False. Unless you're delivering it in person!! They are sometimes grown here locally - beautiful plants!

    TPBM is going to explain why he or she is on Santa's naughty list this year.

    Well, as far as i am aware, it is because of that doggy-doo water balloon that i sent sailing over our house, the neighbors house and into the second story window of the house down the road (we have a slingshot made for water balloons that can fling them over 200m!)..... *shiver* it was a party, i think that excuses me! Plus their dog is an annoying little beast anyway lol

    TPBM is never making another water balloon again....

    OK - that one got me, Jordan!!

    False - I don't like to say never. And I've got a grandson, Gavin, who likes to "battle" with me, so I'm sure water balloons will enter the arsenal some day, though they'd better not include doggy doo! We shoot each other with Nerf guns, set up wars with G.I. Joes, and we used to shoot rubber bands at each other until his mother nixed that one! Gavin is impressed with my shooting ability, and I'm impressed with his ability to deflect off what I shoot at him. (He usually uses his Star Wars light saber to protect himself when I'm shooting with the Nerf gun.)

    TPBM had a dream last night that featured orchids. (That MUST be a good omen, right?)

    This gent rigged his Christmas lights to flash in time with TSO's more well known songs: "Carol of the Bells/Christmas in Sarajevo".

    False. I generally do quite well with mathematics.

    TPBM has made or will be making Christmas gifts for family/friends.

    True! My grandson wants to give his mother chocolate for Christmas, so I'll have him over to make truffles for my daughter - and for my mother as well. They'll love them, and my grandson will enjoy making them, and I'll enjoy the time with him.

    TPBM has a favorite Christmas carol that shares its tune with an old traditional tune: "What Child Is This" and "Greensleeves"

    False, cant think of one lol

    TPBM just got home from work, with a whole tray of 36 Millet 'Purple Spear' seedlings, and a whole tray of 90 pansy 'Pacific Giant' seedlings for FREEEEEEEEEEEEE!
    We ripped out a display garden at work, and replanted it with Millet, but there were like 50 seedlings left, so i bought some home, as for the pansies, they were gonna be chucked out anyway.
