The Strubs Have A New Tub

I was walking down the sidewalk spraying weeds yesterday and noticed one of the neighbors, Julie, doing yard work out in front of her house. She was dumping the waste into one of the green waste bins City Garbage rents out. How exciting!

There's Julie standing proudly next to her new bin. Congrats to Laurie and Julie for their bouncing baby green waste bin. May you have many happy fill- ups together.

The best part of this is now we can sneak over there and dump the overflow from our bin into theirs when they aren't looking!

Yep. This is big! Even bigger than having your picture on the Humboldt Herald alongside Bonnie Neely. Congrats x 2.

But not quite as good as having my face photo-shopped over with one of the Muppets!

Your area of town is right in my walking path. I love your neighborhood. Nice well-kept landscaping. And the church sign has really nifty messages.

Greetings from Dollison Street!

Fred, What do they charge for the green-waste bin? Their website is useless..

$3.00 a month. Picked up and emptied weekly. Can't get a better deal than that.

a little off topic, hope you don't mind. I've got a flowering bush of some sort over my side fence from the neighboring yard with pink flowers still on it (toward the end of a month of bloom.) There are a number of bees around the flowers as there have been on all the flowering shrubs this year. Not many, but a consistent number and it reminded me of your post a few weeks ago about the lack of bees. The first big bee crisis I think was in the 90's? and I was living in the Oakland Hills. There had been a number of articles about the bees dying and I noted that year that I saw lots of bees, but not the European honey bees, rather numbers of bees small to large, probably mostly solitary types and it seemed to me then that the die off of the European bees was allowing the many species of native bees to recover.

The bees outside now are also varied in species. That is twice that I've seen this and it makes me realize that nature does a good job of adapting. So here's to the native bees!
