Did you put a strip along the top, bottom and both sides? I started putting a strip along the top and it stopped mine from falling over so much.
Yeah but I cut the mesh thing a little too short

That is highly irritating (politely putting it). I have done that a few times and you kind of just sit back with your eye twitching because seconds before it was 'too long'.

Also goodnight BeautifulBetta, although it is still only 3pm here.

I suck at measuring so I've gone through two or three sheets before getting it right. "Measure twice, cut once," says my handyman dad. Makes me want to strangle him.

Depends on where you're staying. My parents never heard fireworks where they were, on Oahu at the Royal Hawaiian.

I'm reading this charming book about plant medicines. This last chapter is going afte the loss of biophilia and biognosis, the love and knowledge of life. One interesting point is how it's a waste that scientists have totally dismissed the knowledge of indigenous people constantly as rubbish. One example I really liked was about prairie dogs in the plains. The natives there had a crazy old warning, "if you kill off the prairie dogs there will be no one to cry for rain." Well this is obviously this most ridiculous thing ever, scientists decided there can't be any connection between the two! So they exterminated the prairie dogs in order to protect the land for cattle. These lands (in Arizona) have today turned from lush prairie lands to a dry dead desert! Another elder had said that the burrows of the prairie dogs actually would bring up groundwater to keep the land alive. Without the burrows providing moisture the land couldn't last.
Anyways it could be a huge coincidence, but the book goes on to talk about are we crazy if we think hundreds of similar cases of "old knowledge" being right could possibly all be coincidence. It's all quite thought provoking.
