I enjoyed the Culture Shock item, the Sign War and Beau's story. And I just want to take a minute to say how much I like the photoshopped images celebrating Miss Cellania that you use for these posts! I wish I had your skills at doing this!

Debra, I have no Photoshop skills. Many of these were done with generators over the years, and the best ones are from my brother, who is a graphic artist.

Their suggestion of using pallet wood is terrible. Many pallets are treated with pesticides and are unsuitable for either burning or building.

I agree, pallet wood is crap, that's why it's used on pallets which are a throw away item for the most part. Composite is the way to go with wood prices so high. It will save you a fortune in maintenance costs plus tons of yearly upkeep down the road and should last 25 or more years.
