How about another fun one? I am thinking some sort of insect casing, but what kind?

is this made by a pre-historic termite?… because if that is the case, i would stay away from it… there might be some eggs left in there and having 5-cm termites gnawing your house posts and beams is a scary thought:)!

It looks like a Mud dauber nest to me.

hey Will,
I don’t mean to be gross, but my first thought when I saw this picture was that it came from a dog, and why would you post a picture of dog doo? You’re probably right on the insect casing idea. Have you broken it open yet? And can we go back to flowers, leaves changing color, or fog in a valley for the next picture? 🙂

It does look a little like a Mud Dauber nest, JD. There seem to be many different kinds, but it may be.

Steve – We have a couple of them, but don’t plan to break them open as they are kind of neat as is. These mysteries are fun and I have several other things collected by me or my wife that I am not sure of. But I’ll try to go back to something like you suggest for a week before I put up another puzzle. We are predicted to get our first snow this weekend, so maybe something pretty will come out of that.

Don’t laugh, but at first glance I thought it was an oddly shaped chocolate chip cookie. (You can tell where my mind is!) On second glance, I thought of mud wasps…

hey Will,
I just tried posting on a CFL post of yours and it didn’t work.
I’m trying here to see if I can make a comment. ~ Steve

Well, that one worked so maybe it was because it was an old post. I got a message saying “your comment was not accepted”. Anyway, here’s what I wrote:
Hey Will,
I’m a huge fan of CFLs, though I’ve found in high “on-off” applications that they don’t last as long as they should. Anyway, regarding disposing of them, they can be recycled at Home Depot. Actually, according to Rudy who commented on my blog post, some Home Depots may have not gotten the corporate recycling box yet, but Rudy says you can drop them off at WalMart as well (I can’t vouch for this).
Anyway, if you get much traffic on your CFL posts, you might want to update them to mention the importance of recycling CFLs and that they can be dropped off at Home Depot or Walmart (and maybe other places as well).

Strange, Steve. All my posts should accept comments. I do get occasional ones even on posts over a year old. Let me know specifically which post it was.

I had heard and forgotten that Home Depot takes back cfl’s for recycling and I forgot to check the last time I was there. I did not know about Walmart.

hi Will, I think it was your “headache” post about what to do with used CFLs. I wouldn’t worry too much about the comment not working. Could have just been a glitch. I also had problems posting comments in IE6 a while back (again, who knows why?), but now use Firefox and it works (all the websites I go to work to, which is nice!)
