News and events around the Cubits Universe

Thanksgiving long weekend up here so I'd like to wish all of my Canadian readers a very happy and safe holiday.

Hog Wild Seed Swap

It's t2010-10-10/threegardeners/b29f39ime for the Hog Wild Seed Swap! This is a swap that has been going on for about 6 years now. Every year it  gets bigger and bigger. Last year they had about 60 people and 12,000 seeds that were swapped. 

This is a great way to expand your collection. Everybody is welcome to join in the fun...even if you only have one pack of seeds!

Join the fun over at Ella's Garden by clicking right here.

Joke of The Week 

Did you hear about the guy who called the police because he saw some people stealing things out of the shed in his back yard? The police asked him if they were in his house and he said, "No." Then the police said that all units were busy and he should lock his doors. They would send someone as soon as they could.

The guy hung up, waited 30 seconds and called back. "I just called you about the people stealing things out of my shed. Well, don't worry about it, I shot them."

In less than five minutes, police cars screeched into his driveway, sirens blaring, and caught the thieves red-handed.

"I thought you said you shot them," said the officer.

"Thought you said no one was available," he replied.

Did You Know?

That Cubits is only 91 members shy of 3000??

At just over 6 months old Cubits is growing lightning fast!

Being a holiday weekend work is hectic to say the least. I was under the impression that the weekend would be an easy one, what with everybody being away. Boy was I wrong! I failed to take into account the fact that everyone from everywhere else would be here!!

Friday night I started at 3pm and didn't have a chance to look up from the till until we ran out of gas at 9:45. Yup, you read that right, we ran out of gas! A gas station with no gas is like...well...McDonalds with no fries!!

We still haven't got a hard frost yet, which is very strange for us in October. What a beautiful Fall it has been and still is!

I should get back to my coffee and try to pretend that I'm waking up :)

See you around the Universe!
