Where We Been...


Yes, blogging has been light and I apologize. In the real world, I'm a IT Specialist for a very large legal organization and we are in the midst of replacing all of the computers, laptops, servers, switches, etc. for our attorney's and their support staff (over 600 positions) so blogging will be light until it is over.

In the meantime, I've still be gardening but we've also been working that around different projects like this one.


We had the drywall replaced in our laundry room.  My brother-in-law did it while we were away on a trip (soon to be on The World on Wheels) where, due to an unfortunate misunderstanding, he was almost arrested when neighbors mistook him for a robber. The Sheriff's response included three patrol cars and a helicopter!


Well, it's done, now I just have to clean up the mess.


Some of that scrap wood will be burned off in our outdoor fireplace when it gets cooler.

For now, I'll just keep gardening on and enjoying our little slice of paradise.

Casualties of War

Just when I thought my garden was going good...



Among the crops I planted for this year's vegetable garden were three varieties of corn.  Corn has always at least done a bit well for me and this year's crop was looking very good.

Then, on trash day when I brought the cans back in, I saw this...



Something, I guessing a local raccoon, decided to eat the whole lot. All of it. Every bit.

I guess it's just supermarket corn for us this year.

The horror...the horror...

GREAT GADGETS: Condiment Squeeze Bottle


Yep, the same kind you squeeze ketchup out of at your local diner. 

This comes in so handy, I put guacamole in it and squeeze it out on my food for a quick boost of healthy flavor, like I'm doing here with my omelet to go.


I think we got this for less than a dollar at Smart and Final.
