I think that superstitions were created by irritated moms. "If you open that umbrella one more time in the house, so help me!"

Gardens galore

My in laws, John and Anne came down for the long weekend and we took the opportunity of extra helping hands to get the flowers started this year. Jeremiah found this fantastic concept of the "Square Foot Garden" so he and his dad trotted off to Totem Building Supply, bought some wood n plastic n tarps n stuff and then met us over at Sunnyside Nursery. Must say, they did an amazing job, and now, along with all our flowers, we have a lovely 8' x 2' garden box on the end of our deck! It makes 16 squares and in each square foot is a different vegetable, with the opportunity to harvest certain things and then plant others in their place.The start / mess
The beginning of the garden plot

2 of the pots in the outside centre have sunflowers surrounded by marigolds, that should grow up to 4 or 5 feet :)
We also still have a lot of seeds we didn't plant, so another Square Foot Garden plot may be in order.

I got new glasses!

And here's the pic from the website, all the ones I took of me didn't turn out so hot...

Three handsome male dogs are walking down the street when they see a
beautiful, enticing, female Poodle.

The three male dogs fall all over themselves in an effort to be the one
to reach her first, but end up arriving in front of her at the same time.

The males are speechless before her beauty, slobbering on themselves and
hoping for just a glance from her in return.

Aware of her charms and her obvious effect on the three suitors, she
decides to be kind and tells them, "The first one who can use the words
'liver' and 'cheese' together in an imaginative, intelligent sentence
can go out with me."

The sturdy, muscular black Lab speaks up quickly and says, "I love liver
and cheese."

"Oh, how childish," said the Poodle. "That shows no imagination or
intelligence whatsoever."

She turns to the tall, shiny Golden Retriever and says "How well can you

"Um. I HATE liver and cheese," blurts the Golden Retriever.

"My, my," said the Poodle. "I guess it's hopeless. That's just as dumb
as the Lab's sentence."

She then turns to the last of the three dogs and says, "How about you,
little guy?"

The last of the three, tiny in stature but big in fame and finesse, is
the Taco Bell Chihuahua.

He gives her a smile, a sly wink, turns to the Golden Retriever and the
Lab and says....

Liver alone. Cheese mine
