One week ago today we completed our initial journey to the Great Land with truck and trailer, and things just couldn’t be going any better. We still have to deal with a lot of snow on the ground – we haven’t even been able to get to, much less into, our greenhouse yet – but even here in Willow, winter is losing its grip on the countryside. The snow is melting, a little bit day by day, and before we know it, the wildflowers will be blooming. On Sunday last, in fact, a great mass of snow finally slid off our roof, partially blocking the drive and requiring a fair amount of shoveling.
Oh, and we had a lynx walk through the yard, right past the house. We didn’t see him but found his tracks the other morning.
Now, with that out of the way…
On To the Links!
As many as I can, while I can. I think this guy has plenty of company.
Add to that The Scourge of Chronic Scrotal Pain. Yipes again!
Pregnant while pregnant. One would think being knocked up would preclude getting knocked up, but biology is a funny business.
This Week’s Idiots:
Crazy Eyes, in addition to being an idiot, is one of the least effective members of Congress. Well, duh. That might explain why some of her fellow Dems are ditching her.
Salon’s Amanda Marcotte is an idiot. But then, we already knew that.
Annie Lennox and Dave Stewart (who, as we recently noted, also played with Tom Petty) performed as Eurythmics, and had kind of a neat style. Not my usual cup of tea, but they had talent, and a unique kind of sound. Here’s a good example of their work; this is 1983’s Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This.) Enjoy.
