Canadian Geese Can Be Messy

There is a local company that deals with Canada geese control in New Jersey. It sounds like of funny that there is a company that deals with geese and keeps them off property, but the truth is that they can be a real problem. They poop a lot, and when they do their business, it goes all over the property and it could actually be messy and make people sick. It is never a good idea for people to be around a large amount of feces from any type of animal, even if it is just a bird like a goose. They travel around in large groups together, especially when they migrate north and south in the fall and the spring. It is not uncommon to see a lot of them together when they are traveling.

My Uncle Frank Has Passed Away

I have been really busy this week, my uncle died really suddenly about thirteen days back. He left a really messy estate of which I am the sole beneficiary, but in fact the amount of money I will walk away with does not look as though it shall be worth the effort to be honest. There is going to be something left over, but for example I have been looking at buying monuments in Newark NJ right now and you would not believe how much that costs. Obviously I could really shortchange all of the arrangements. From what I can tell there are not going to be a lot of mourners, since Uncle Frank was a real loner. In fact he has lots of other relatives, but he was really difficult to get on with and he was estranged from every other relative. Of course there is a real wild card in this. (more…)

Neighbor’s Tree Flattens Our Fence

Spring winds usually bring down some branches. Nothing major in the history of our yard and trees. That is until this year, and it was not even spring yet. It was still winter with March winds coming in fast and furious. It wasn’t even our tree. A neighbor’s tree had the top blown off, and it sailed over and landed partially in our yard with the rest of it smashing our fence. I called a company that does Nassau County tree pruning to come out and remove the big section of tree that blew down, and I asked them to go ahead and cut any other threatening branches with my nieghbor’s permission. I knew he did not have the money to get the work done, but I wanted our property and house better protected from nearby trees. (more…)
