Pinheads 10- Pallet Pinheads

Some of these are just so creative!

Monday, July 29, 2013


Besides being some of the most ridiculous lyrics to ever come along (sorry, Beatles... but they are) it is also the number of this version of Pinheads!
 Pallets as raised planting beds!
 Not really a pinhead. But rather a good idea for bacon lovers
 Make your own BBQ
 Fun with Wire spools!

B-Town Dog Silent Auction

You may have noticed I have been absent for the past week or so... Why? I am getting ready for my little dog Owners Group, B-Town DOG's first money making event - the B-town DOG Silent Auction. B-Town DOG is a group of dog owners and dog lovers whom are tasked with raising funds for our city's first ever off-leash dog park. And of course I, with my colleagues Kellie and Lauren, am in the middle of things. We are holding an silent auction at the local favorite coffee spot, Burien Press, one week from today, August 1st, 6-9 pm. (The Auction itself will run from 7- 8:30 pm). We have many great items donated by both Businesses and individuals, seen here. Everything from Belly Dance peformance to handmade quilts to A truck wheel hibachi! So if you are around the Burien area, stop by and bid... Do it for the dogs!

Egg Vanilla Cream

A classic drink in New York, The Egg Cream has neither egg nor cream in it. But it does have chocolate, and in my version,Vanilla Cream Soda!
Take a large glass
fill it with Chocolate Syrup (about 2 TBLSP)
and about halfway up with milk
stir well
Then fill to the top with Vanilla Cream Soda
the usual recipes say soda/seltzer water, I choose Cream Soda to get the vanilla flavor.

White Trash Gardening

A little white trash gardening for y'all... I could've painted the Big Gulp containers, but didn't. Maybe this fall. They are the perfect size for these hanger rings though!

PinHead Greenhouse

Everyonce in a while I see a pinhead that makes me want to smack my forehead and say "Why didn't I think of that?" Here's is one of those forehead smackers. You can find detailed instructions at swingncocoa.

Aqua Man

Meet MacDonald, the newest member to the Rob's World family. Old Mac,unlike his canine counterparts, has a job. To make doo doo in this tank!
My AquaFarm from Back to the roots came in. Back To The Roots is where I buy my mushroom kits and supplies, so I know their quality, so when I saw they had these "AquaFarms" coming out I signed up for one! An AquaFarm is a home aquaponics planter/aquarium.
The Idea is that your fish's waste and such, gets pumped up to the reservoir on top of the tank, where it supplies the plants and seeds with a fish nutrient rich supply of water, the plant roots in turn ""filter the water before returning it to the tank. BTTR suggests a betta, such as Mac, as the ideal fish for my little farm, all though I envision someday doing this with a large tank and tilapia!
Setting up the Aqua Farm 

Seeds are planted. I started with the seeds that came with the kit... Wheat grass, Lettuce and Genovese Basil. After I figure out what the hell I am doing, I will try other herbs.

LAKEVIEW PARK - "The Center of the Known Dog World"

Well part of the better part of a years work is done... and now more work! The Burien City Council gave a group I belong to, B-Town Dog and the Burien Parks Deptartment the green light for our very own Off Leash Dog Park!!! It will be located at the LakeView Park in Burien
 It has been a long year of wishing, hoping and praying. We have held Monthly Park N Barks to get folks interested, shmoozed local politicals, and worked hard behind the scenes. Now our mission becomes one of "Fund Raising"... and we are starting that off by holding a "Silent Auction" at Burien Press on August 1st.
So hopefully if you are in the Burien Area that night, you can come on down an bid on some great items- we will have Wheel on Fire Hibachis, Hand sewn quilts, dog items, all sorts of stuff up for bid!

Burien gets some nice Racks!

Of course Rob and Company sponsored a bike rack!

July 29th- a day for the history books... Burien finally got bike racks. Now people can shop downtown in our fair city, by bike and have places to park and lock their bikes!
Yours truly was there to show my support ( and snag some free snacks)

No... "Flight of the Valkyries" was not playing as I rode up on the Orange Crush... that would have been cool~

A good size crowd showed up for the ribbon cutting
The cool Cruiser that was raffled off... One number away from mine... I was robbed!!!
For more info on the bike racks and pics from the unveiling go to The Wabi bike rack page
