IVP - Strangely Dim - Dirty Thoughts

Dirty Thoughts

Yesterday I bought dirt. Again. The only redeeming value of buying dirt is that it gives me the opportunity to revisit one of my favorite SD posts of all time: Dirt Cheap. Hope you like it.

If you don't like it, try this link to a very clever revisioning of the movie The Shining. Proof that perspective does count for something.

Who said that money couldn't buy happiness? -- and dirt - as long as it makes you happy.

I would be happy if I had nice dirt in my yard. My wife and I have the privilege of living in a relatively new housing evelopment (6 years old) and we keep running into the same "non-dirt" issue whenever we try to plant something in the yard. Turns out that the developers strip all of the "good dirt" and sell it while leaving the prospective homeowner with a nice yard full of clay.
