Why? Why Not?

I am so happy. Somehow, the conditions inside my Worm bin have returned to normal. The Worms are happily wiggling around. Nobody is desperately clawing at the sides trying to escape, and the moisture balance seems right. It doesn't smell bad, and all the maggots have "disappeared". (There are several large black houseflies pestering me today... could it be?) I will let that be my one close call and be glad I learned a lesson. I almost threw in the towel there for a little while (or threw the bin in the dumpster), but my in my little heart, I knew I couldn't quit so easily. Also, murdering the OTHER one thousand Worms that survived the initial catastrophe would have weighed heavily on my conscience. They deserved a fighting chance!!
I added some coffee grounds to the bin. The nice people at The Archive, my local video store/coffee shop were happy to donate some of their used grounds. That was nice of them. It looks like dirt already. I am not adding any more vegetable matter in there for a little while. There is still a little bit they need to clear out, and they eat their bedding also if they want to. I don't want to overload it again. I will be much more careful from now on!

Sometimes people ask me why I am doing this. The reason is so very simple. Despite my initial problems, it's really quite easy. Setting aside scraps takes like no time at all. I shred the paper for the bedding once a week for like 15 minutes. In the end, it is very little effort, and I can know that I am reducing the amount of compostable material going in our landfill. Ideally, one also eliminates waste as much as possible in other areas. Each person can at the very least be responsible for themselves, and their impact on this Earth. Maybe my pile of trash doesn't make a difference when you think about the billions of pounds of trash deposited everyday. But I look at it a different way. I imagine all the waste that I personally throw away in a year. I picture in my head all of my junk in one huge pile heaped up somewhere on our beautiful earth. I did that! I made all that trash and polluted the Earth with it! Of course, most ends up in a landfill somewhere. But landfills are ugly smelly disgusting places. We are ruining our nice natural beautiful spots with all the landfills we need to create. I like nature, it's really cool. I think trees are really pretty, and I love to take nature walks and see moss on rocks, frogs, and I am learning to identify mushrooms. So, I don't want to wreck everything out of carelessness. It's just one small thing one can do. Is it enough? No. There are millions of ways to help once you start trying. This blog, though, is about Worms!

Good stuff BWG. I too had trouble and little misshaps at first. But now i have 3 fully fuctional worm farms/bins. The only thing i would suggest is go for a dedicated bin like the can-o-worms / reln types or others that are similar as they never have problems with flies and stuff like that and its so easy to collect the liquid and castings.
Also i collect and crush to a fine powder all the eggshells i use as this helps balance the PH level in the farms and this helps stop the acidity which makes the white worms thrive( they are small white worms).
Good luck with it and what a great idea you had to post the progress of you worms! Good onya!

Mourinho thinks Kaka will stay at Real Madrid in January
Mourinho thinks Kaka will stay at Real Madrid inJanuary

So what s Plan B around Home Depot Center? Because if Kaka is Plan A to replace David Beckham s retiring moving to ownership I don t know what to put here departing star power, then LA Galaxy may need some evasive action.
That s because the latest word out of Spain is that Jos Mourinho wants the 30-year-old Brazilian to stick around:
I don t think that Kaka will go anywhere, Mourinho said. He will stay. And as I ve said all along, if he stays then it is good for us because he provides us with an extra option.
Nothing earth-shattering here. Everything Mourinho says was just as applicable three years ago as it is now, even though aside from first season at the Santiago Bernabeu, Kaka has never been first choice. Now that Real Madrid has brought in Luka Modric to provide an alternative to [url=http://wholesalenikeshoes.manifo.com/]wholesale nike shoes[/url] Mesut Ozil, Kaka isn t even likely to play his preferred position, the reason why he s only made fivePrimers Divisionappearances this season.
So if these words don t tell us anything about Kaka s place in the squad, why are they noteworthy at all? In fairness, they may not be, though their timing is noteworthy. Having been openly discussed as a target by Tim Leiweke, anything that sheds some light on Kaka s availability is relevant. Mourinho s words don t tell us why he thinks a player who almost never sees the field will stay in Madrid. They just say he likely will.
So what s Plan B? Who knows. The Kaka link kind of came out of nowhere, and while we know the CEO of Anschutz Entertainment Group is committed to getting a player that appeals to the market LA s reaching with their new Time Warner broadcast deal, there aren t a lot of Kaka-esque players that are viable options.
Do they make another run at Giovani Dos Santos? Do they oil Juan Roman Riquelme s joints and lure him north? If it wasn t for Carlo Cudicini s potential signing, I d suggest making a run at the marketing machine that is Memo Ochoa.
Back to Mourinho. He will stay, is pretty strong language, but the rest of Mourinho s words aren t complete door-closers. A man like Leiweke may not see a red light.
