An excellent book...

The life and career of David Fairchild.

Did you know that the Chilean translation
of "avocado" is "testicle"? 

Did you know the Incas ate quinoa and
that it is a cousin to spinach?

You can't send flowers to a post office box...


Wherever I was, it wasn't here. No snow.
But yet, in the fenced yard, I saw a polar bear wandering.
I kept checking the gate to make sure it couldn't escape.
I sensed other large animals in the yard but didn't see them,
so I don't know what they were.
I started looking for the bathroom and that's when I woke up.
Sure enough, I had to pee. 

Dreams are weird.

I miss blogging. The way it used to be.
Thank goodness there are some of you still out there.
I'm not ready to give up yet, either.
