How cool would that be if you showed up? Someday you will be settled and ready to make stuff in your new home, and it will be awesome!

Oh, hey, I just saw this! We were hot and dry all summer, with a little more rain than previous years. Everything struggled along until fall, when we started getting abundant rain. I can't even plant my winter garden yet because the basil, peppers, tomatoes, and even okra are all producing like mad and I don't want to tear them out. Did it ever dry out for y'all?

I am still picking away at it! Shortly after I posted that I realized I was just over halfway done and it was going to be a while yet. It has gotten easier as I've gotten used to the writing style, and it's so good, but I still can't read it for more than 15-20 minutes at a time before my attention starts to flag.

I ended up adding a brick on either side to expand a few months later, but for herbs it should be fine. Also, a tip: if you're growing mint, plant it in the holes in the blocks to keep it from taking over everything. It'll still try, but it helps!

Hey, thanks! And yes, learn that banjo! And then as soon as you can play even a little, find someone to play with. It's so fun.

You know that this is all your fault, Murse.

Thanks, Emily! I appreciate it. I am not on Facebook, but! If you use Firefox you can apply a similar image as a skin: http://www.getpersonas.com/en-US/persona/147627

We went to a monkey sanctuary in Kyoto thinking it would be pure magic but had pretty much the same experience you did. Turns out that fearless, grabby, aggressive monkeys are kind of terrifying. Those statues are great, though!

You bet, Murse! I love their eusocial nature too. Also, you should all know that this is post number 2222. (AKA 290 East, Texas State Highway Spur 69, Koenig Lane, Allandale Road, Northland Drive, and Bullick Hollow Road.)

Hi, Molly! How's it going? Making a big batch of this sauce is the highest and best use for surplus peppers as far as I'm concerned: http://www.jaybones.com/recipes/jalapeno_sauce/index.htm (Maybe if I make this enough I can justify the purchase of a propane torch, but for now I just use the grill or the broiler!)

Yeah, go for it! I tried to learn the banjo about 10 years ago. It was easy and fun but I couldn't figure out how to tune it so I quit. I should have just taken lessons; I could be a banjo wizard by now. Damn it.

Yep. He's probably still numb from when I was learning clarinet in middle school.

Look, everyone, it's Kristy! They don't smell like much really, although Eric thinks they might if there are a ton of trees blooming together. We saw/smelled some plum blossoms that had a nice fragrance today, though.

Hi, Dan! It's true--they even use them to represent temples on maps. These were red, black, and white swastikas, though, not temple swastikas.

They reminded me more of a magazine crew than a pop group.
