Our Tax person is a Pathfinder GM

We had a new person do our taxes this year, same company, but the regular guy was unavailable. This new one was a young girl. Not five minutes into our appointment she somehow brought up the fact that she is an RPG gamer. She referred to Dungeons & Dragons, and I asked if she used 5th Edition she said she really uses a game called Pathfinder, but it's easier to just use D&D to tell people who don't know the difference.

Well, I know the difference. So we talked about that a little.

She said she games twice a week. One game she's a player and the other she's the GM. All online with Roll20, however.







 

Tax forms and character sheets all look quite similar much of the time.

Poxy Boggards' family friendly songs

The Poxy Boggards are an American all-male folk band based in Pasadena. They were founded in 1994 at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Faire. While extremely talented and entertaining, much of their music is in an inappropriate thematic genre, usually about alcohol and sex. Despite this, many of their songs are perfectly enjoyable by all ages and family friendly fans.

This blog post collects some of those songs that the family can enjoy.




here's a start:

Yellow Jackets

We've had a problem with wasps in the stairs of our front door all summer. Various DIY treatments hadn't been working well. I expanded on one of the more common ones and it worked, with an amazing level of effectiveness.

The initial idea was where you cut the top off of a plastic water bottle, invert it and seal it back up. Put something sugary inside and they'll be attracted to it, but won't be able to get out. Tried this, but only about four ever went in.

I figured I needed a way to cover their nest entrance and funnel them into such a trap. Here's what I came up with.

And boy did it ever work!

This one water bottle, and the top of another water bottle. Both attached to a plastic container that comes with salad or spinach leaves or something, with two holes cut into it. All taped up together.

I leveled up

This is a birthday card from my creative dad in the form of a character sheet. It resembles how I tried to describe the FATE RPG system to him. Looks like he took the concept and ran with it. It is awesome.
