But I digress.
The Wasp Situation took a rather
surreal turn today. The special
contractor arrived this morning to assess the situation, and like the
cliché there was Good News™ and Bad News™.
The Good News™? They are not wasps like we originally
thought. Nope. No Paravespula
The Bad News™? We have a honey factory inside our wall!
And they've set up shop in the Facility in the Middle of Nowhere.
The exterminator said that the wall has to be ripped open to remove the
hive, and that he would try to keep the honey from getting all over
So before he comes back we have to clear out the area in the corner of the
bedroom so he can work.
Looks like we'll be taking out that wall after all …

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
