USB greenhouse

How would you like a greenhouse that’s powered by the USB port on your computer? only $15 at computergeeks.com. Sorry Mac users, it requires Pentium III 1.5 GHz processor or higher. “It comes with a computer interface that monitors growth rate, and includes calendar, wallpaper and bookmark settings so you can grow and care for your own desktop plants.” It comes with Marigold seeds. Marigold flowers are kinda white trash.

I own an aquarium with plastic fish that’s run by USB. It’s not hooked up cuz the motor that activates the plastic fish is quite loud.

I agree, Marigolds are kinda white trash. Plus they stink, literally! They’re supposed to be good for keeping mosquitoes away, but I’d almost rather be bitten than have to look at or smell a Marigold.

Noisy fish! Can you imagine? You’re at the dentist, the one with the amazing aquarium. You’re waiting, patiently and just then, the fish start getting all noisy!

Oh please do not talk trash about the Marigold. It is a lovely and precious flower. Now plastic fish on the other hand…

I think I have to agree with Spud on this one. Although the Marigold is far from being the best flower, I think having noisy plastic fish is probably worse.

Sounds kinda tacky, like those giant inflatables that people put on their lawns nowadays at Christmastime.

To each his own on the Marigolds.

I was getting worried though … but at least my lawn ornament isn’t inflatable. Mine is the old school blowmold variety.

Tom, since when do you have a lawn?!

haha! No lawn, as you well know … but I just had to have one of those vintage blowmold snowmen this winter! I set him up on the balcony, bungee-corded onto a wire milkcrate weighted down with bricks (it gets very windy out there!) and ran an extension cord out (and slammed it in the doorwall … safety first!) and up into his body to light him up! I found him on eBay. Funny enough, I got a catalog in the mail with a similar hard plastic lighted snowmen and they cost a fortune! I think they’re making a comeback.
