Salad in a jar - I don't put any dressing in the jar. If you do make sure its no where near the lettuce. I reccomend not putting the dressing in the jar at all. Your salads will last a little over a week w/o dressing!
Squirrel: I'm sorry to bother you but the bird feeder is empty. (A squirrel, my mother named Petey, once got on the porch railing and rang the doorbell because he wanted some peanuts!) Now I call all squirrels, "Petey"
