I bought these great ideas, but due to some glitch, they don't work. I don't throw them away because:
#1. i can't believe i spent that much money on something that doesn't work
#2. maybe, if i sit down some year, i can repair it.
- The mister for hummingbirds attaches to the bird bath. It worked the first year, but then the 1/8 inch tube for water for the mister got holes in it. (from gnawing raccoons?)
- The battery-operating bird feeder that begins spinning when it senses the weight of a squirrel and flings the squirrel off. (Don't i wish!) A raccoon overloaded its battery power the very first night. Now it's stuck. I spent $50 to have a bird feeder cluttering up my garage.
It's time to renounce bad ideas and desires that lead to suffering (see #1 and #2 above).
Spring cleaning--a great time to practice the third supreme quality of a Bodhisattva and simplify our life.
