RE: Theresa, found the perfect thing for you.....

If I had won the powerball jackpot- I probably would have bought this!  Then
I would have lots and lots for room to plant things.  And I wouldn't have to
deal with the ding-dang "green waste" guy refusing to take my barrel because
it was too heavy!  I figure if I can move the thing to the street than the
machine sure ought to be able to lift it into the truck!  I do only weigh
115 lbs- that stupid truck has got to have more power behind it than I do.
Sorry- but they really annoy me when they are willing to take the time to
write me a little note, but won't just take the stuff with them.  Mine was
filled with sod I had ripped out of the lawn to make a garden bed larger.  I
think it must have been a replacement driver today- since they always have
taken it in the past.

Sac, CA zone 8-9

Got just the thing for you to buy!

    If you've ever fancied yourself the owner of a rustic town in
Northern California, you've got until Friday to put in your bid on eBay
for Bridgeville. As of Christmas Day, the online auction site showed
that 185 bids had been submitted in the private auction, with the
bidding exceeding $1.5 million. Successive bids must be increased by at
least $100. The deadline is 12:56 p.m. EST Friday. The eBay description
says the town "can be a private retreat, basking in the glory of
redwoods," encompassing 1.5 miles of "the beautiful Van Dusen river."
The 137-year-old town a few hundred miles north of San Francisco in
Humboldt County includes 10 houses and four cabins scattered about on 82
acres, according to the description on eBay. But in case you happen to
be a reticent investor, you could operate Bridgeville "as a remarkable
tax shelter, check with your accountant," the eBay description advises.
