Nice to see parents protecting their young in the animal world.

So, no driving 30-45 minutes away, both ways, in traffic sometimes, no spending money on Hummer fuel, and best of all, I get to Learn a *New* Skill in 2023.
My Grandson who was born while his parents and siblings all lived with me back in 2019-2020 turned 3 years old today!
My neighbor, who benefited from me cutting down the trees that yearly messed up our yards and swimming pools must have seen or heard me chopping up more of the downed trees to place in my 2 trash bins, texted me offering for me to also use one of her trash bins for lawn waste, she's been a pretty good neighbor. She just allowed her daughter and grandkids to move in with her after her daughter's husband passed away and her daughter found herself unable to continue to pay the $3K+ monthly rent. Fuck, that's more than my monthly mortgage.
I've also been enjoying WeedTube's Pipeline app. I've been posting Micro-Seshes (1-minute videos) in addition to full-length videos. I'm also still showing my YouTube channel some love.
Bandit received his 3-year rabies vaccination and I renewed his county license so he's still all legal and medically protected.
I'm down to only 3 more need-to-do things for February and it will be another win for 2023.
- File Federal & State Taxes
- Replace toilet #2.
- Replace toilet #3
Well, the backyard felling is complete, now moving into Phase 2 of 4.
Phase 1: Cut down.
Phase 2: Remove debris
Phase 3: Remove stumps and root systems
Phase 4: Create a Backyard Putting Green?
All monthly Bills for February have been paid.
The Vehicle Renewal Registration that is due every 2 years has been paid.
The last Bill that comes every 3 years will be paid once Bandit's vaccination is renewed and then I can renew his license with the County.
I was thinking, scheduling a Bulk Trash Pickup of these cut trees would require me to drag everything to the front of my house or pay to have it done for me, but decided on keeping everything covered with weed retardant fabric and just fill the appropriate 2 trash bins each week with what I cut from the stack until it's all gone.
I still have 2 new water-efficient toilets to replace the old 20-year-old ones with.
They are still in the box outside each respective bathroom waiting for me to tackle the project.
I mean, 1 done and 2 more to go so I know it's not that difficult.
I have one video each to Edit and Publish on my YouTube and WeedTube Channels now that Movavi has resolved all Effect Subscription issues after their last update.
Until I record longer content again, I'm deriving Endorphins from uploading Micro-Seshing videos to WeedTube's Pipeline. Making creative content in under 60 seconds is challenging, but hella fun!!!
Of course, the Endorphins continue with my OG Social Media Platforms......
Well, I narrowed it down to 3 things that may have caused hands, arms, chest, and neck skin rashes to the following items:
1. Old Spice Aftershave Lotion.
2. Ivory Bar Soap.
3. Dermasil Dry Skin Treatment Original Lotion.
These 3 items are the only three items I've applied to those areas.
I'm ruling out #3.
I stopped using #1 & #2.
The rashes had begun to go away, but out of curiosity and having that soap as the only soap I had prior to grocery shopping, I used it again after a long while. Twice!
Yeah, those same areas flared back up and are trying to spread due to my scratching and breaking the skin and then spreading it to the broken skin areas.
Then I read this on the internet:
For example, some people think they are allergic to Ivory soap, which is supposed to be moisturizing but can give some a rash. That is likely dry skin, not an allergy, said Dr. Sharon Jacob, assistant professor of medicine and pediatrics at the University of California at San Diego.

So ok, if Ivory soap is causing dry skin and rashes, then I'll be throwing that soap in the trash and using Aquaphor until the broken skin heals and then using Dermasil to keep the skin moisturized as I attempt to switch to a brand of soap that won't break me out.
It laughs at Calamine Lotion, but it helps from time to time.
However, Calamine Lotion drys out that area to keep it from itching, but then causes it to each later or the itching just returns.
1. Stop Scratching!!!
2. Keep areas moisturized as they heal.
3. Keep areas moisturized after they've healed.
Just a thought, and maybe look into it further because I am not a dr.... but maybe aloe would help both with the itch and the dry skin... not the green stuff though... find the clear aloe... I buy it at walmart. :)
Drove to town today.
Had to get the Hummer SMOGed in order to renew my registration.
As they check the vehicle, there is always that small amount of anxiety about it not passing for some reason.
However, it has passed again.
So, see them in another 2 years.
Then I drove to the Pool Store to purchase more chemicals.
Then I drove to the Smoke Shop and gave into my urge to buy!
Just one wall of the store and it's stocked all the way around the entire store.
This is what I purchased.
Then I went to Home Depot and purchased a Chainsaw for my Backyard project.
Then I drove to the grocery store and purchased supplies.
Then I returned safely home...Mission Accomplished!
Lastly, I placed everything away, ate, and now.....
