I Hope They Found What They Were Looking For

Have you ever played around with your site meter? Every once in a while, I like to go check out what search words brought people to my blog through google. Sometimes it's pretty straight forward, sometimes it's scary, and sometimes it is funny.

Here are a few examples:

Fracus plant - I am pretty sure that is what my Logan's hardy lemon tree is. Every time I back into it and get poked in the bohiny there is a fracus.

i killed green worm in container plant - My worms are red. If I found a green worm I would definitely be here braggin' and trying to figure out what it was. Unfortunately, I think the inquirer may have killed a little garden snake.

Dandelions in compost - I feed my dandelions to the bunnies. They eventually make it to the compost after being converted into rabbit pills.

Blog block of the month - I bet out there someplace there are quilting bloggers who do this. I am afraid to go look because I might not make it back here. Picture me staring at the computer screen whispering "look at all the pretty colors."

Is sauerkraut good for my pet - I don't know. What I do know is that if we were to feed Abby sauerkraut, we would all have to leave the house because of the noxious gas.

Yarn Monster - Yes we have a yarn monster. Here she is.

Composting on a patio - Yes, absolutely, compost on your patio. I will show you how it's done.

Amish rabbit hutch - Now I don't know exactly what that is, but I am absolutely sure I want one. Here are our bunnies Starr and, um, (uncomfortable silence) Mario. Mario only answers to the name Lucy.

Hope they found what they were looking for.


  1. Debbie ... my god you made me laugh with this ! .. and I am bone tired from working in my garden .. laughing hurts ! So STOP that funny stuff girl ! LOL
    PS .. I think I'm afraid to Google (gardenjoy) .. it could be VERY scary ! LOL

  2. I never google myself, ever. This is what google brought to me. Sorry you are sore. I never intended to cause you pain. Glad you are back to gardening. Spring is great, isn't it?

  3. Great idea - I'm collecting my wierder ones too - I especially like 'Where the h*ll is Chippenham' and 'Mmm you tasty blog' ;)

  4. Sounds like fun! I enjoy visiting you, I can usually find my smile when I come here! (Might not sound like much, but you don't know all that much about me either)

  5. Hi vp, I have had a couple of unmentionable search entries. We won't go there. I though these were pretty fun.

    cinj, it's always nice to know I can make someone smile. Thank you.

  6. Oh, you made me laugh until my sides hurt.~~Dee

  7. Hi Dee, I am beginning to enjoy the power to inflict pain with laughter. Never thought I was funny before this blog. It a good pain, right?

  8. Debbie,
    I like to check out the site meter referrals occasionally, and you're are right--some of them are pretty funny. What's scary to me are the ones that get to my blog looking for hallucinogenic drugs, peyote buttons and other alkaloids sometimes found in cacti. Then, there are some searches that have not even a remote relationship to anything I've ever written about. I don't know how they are directed to my blog. One of the most hilarious referrals came from a question: "will Vitex agnus-castus (Chaste Tree) keep my husband faithful while on his trip?"
    It's good entertainment going through the referrals on a boring afternoon!

  9. Aiyana, That is the priceless.

    I ignore the creepy stuff. I know there are not finding what they are looking for here.

  10. I laughed so hard that I cried when I read this post. I have got to go see what this is about. I'm new to blogging and only just the other day figured out you had linked to me on the E award. Otherwise it would have sat there till the Happy Cows in California made it home.

  11. Hi Anna, glad you found your present. Here's to laughing together.
