School Lunches & WIC

Now is time to fight for better school food

“If you are what you eat, then I’m fast, cheap and easy.” When Alice Waters, of Chez Panisse fame, saw that line on a bumper sticker, she wondered, “Is this really what we want the destiny of our nation to be?”

Hangin' Out

Every evening this spider builds a web - finishing about 9 o'clock. Then around 6 am, completely dismantles it and goes.....somewhere?? Only to return again that evening and start all over.

I don't recall the name of this spider, but I've seen this kind on tomato plants before.

Catching up

August has been busy and haven't had much time until now. Rhonna went to Denver for a 3-day library conference then just after a couple days off to recover she worked the next weekend. A few more days at work and she left last Friday morning for the University of Alabama to attend grad-school orientation. With Rhonna gone and Joe in school all day, things have been pretty quiet around here. Rhonna comes home tonight and we are all looking forward to staying home for a while.

The remodeling is done and the house is ours again except we are now in the middle of having a new roof put on due to the June hailstorm. Next up is major work on the sewer line.

The math is quite easy:

add together:
One 90 year old house + 2 sewer clean-outs in past year
= we get to spend lots of money

All that's left after that is the water main! Yea!!!

Hopefully it can wait at least few years from now!

Now for pictures:

This lawn is your lawn

Much better than the advice from 7 years ago to just keep on shopping. Just watch the video.
