  1. OK, here's a big clue: Last Christmas, I gave you my heartBut the very next day you gave it awayThis year, to save me from tearsI'll give it to someone special
  2. OK, how about this one from a new, slightly twisted (well, not really "twisted", but rather with a twist that took me a while to figure out), Christmas movie based on a song: Tom: It's good luck you know. Kate: What is? Tom: Getting pooed on by a bird. Kate: I'm busy, you're weird, good-bye!
  3. It's been a while, so I Googled: https://youtu.be/hKzy_S2gRI8 Bruce Campbell in Army of the Dead - good choice!
  4. Well, it has been a couple weeks and my little green houses are still there and doing pretty well: Besides the tomatoes, there is a spaghetti squash, thyme, chives, an old zucchini, and a mis-labelled pepper (I think).
  5. Well, my little winter green houses weathered their first storm OK. Here are some pics: We'll see how the tomatoes do this winter.
  6. Here's a link to the announcement on Tor: WoT Tor Sounds like I wasn't the only one worried.
  7. I've been so worried about it - too many rumors, both the Ogier and Thom Merrilin were supposedly on the chopping block. So glad that there was no need to open The Book of Translation!
  8. “Loial, son of Arent, son of Halan.” Please welcome Hammed Animashaun as Loial to #WOTonPrime.
  9. A fresh batch this morning! Well, maybe not quite this morning - this turning of the wheel at least!
  10. Warms the tea and pours Ryrin a cup. Anyone else care for a drink?
  11. We've had very bad "Santa Ana" winds this year. My son's little green house has survived fine, so far, but we lost the patio canopy. Had the legs weighed down with sand bags, but it blew so hard one night that it got flung across the yard finally ending up impaled on my roses. Good thing too or I'm sure it would have landed in the neighbor's yard. The cloth part was punctured and ripped and the metal supports twisted into pretzels. Oh well. Have an enclosed outdoor workout area that took a little damage as well, but I was able to buy replacement parts for the shades and we replaced some screws with larger screw/washers the hold down the roofing before that went flying as well. Now the rains are supposed to start tomorrow, finally ending our "fire season". I still have piles of ash from all of the fires around here to clean up. And don't get me started on the earthquake "swarm" we have a couple weeks ago. About 100 quakes from magnitude 1 to 3.6 over the course of the week centered about 2 miles from where I am typing this now. Fun times!
  12. Guess I'll have do some reading on the softneck variety. I had no clue about raising and curing garlic. Planted an unknown sprout today that we had found growing in our compost pile. Thinking maybe a zucchini squash. Tough little thing. I'm planing on little plastic green houses this winter, so maybe it'll make it. I had a neighbor that swore by these little greenhouses for his winter tomatoes, so we'll see. My son got his green house up and running - and it survived last week's Santa Ana's winds, so maybe I'll finally get mine going as well (been planning on these winter tomatoes for years).
  13. Hi Juan Farstrider and welcome to our stedding! Please make yourself at home - play some games, share some gardening tips or maybe a favorite recipe or two! p

  15. "Airplane" One of the first movies we reviewed in my college movie appreciation class way back when (as a rough cut before the movie was released). How about another Bill Murray quote: "Oh, I do it to blend in. You know. Zombies don't mess with other zombies. Buddy of mine, makeup guy, he showed me how to do this. Corn starch. You know, some berries, a little licorice for the ladies. Suits my lifestyle, you know. I like to get out and do stuff. Just played nine holes on the Riviera. Just walked on. Nobody there."
  16. OK, I Googled - I don't remember seeing this one.

  18. Spaghetti squash is a squash that looks like spaghetti once cooked and shredded with a fork: We serve it with a turkey spaghetti sauce much like in the picture.
  19. LOL - no posts for days and then we both post at the same time!
  20. Thanks for posting! Zucchini still doing well with a couple more ready to be turned into zucchini bread soon. Been getting spaghetti squash periodically, but not a good year for tomatoes. My late planted peppers and onions are doing well though and it was a banner year for blackberries. We have fruit trees too. Apples OK this year, plums not so. Lemon tree making a come back and our little orange tree is loaded this year. Nectarine tree had some this year, but the birds beat me to them. Not too much happening with the Asian pear or the jujube trees, but maybe next year. I bought a little garden cart to help out with the trimming and weedings (not my pic): Kinda useful for us older Ogier, but I am still getting used to mine. I'll post some pics of it in action soon -hopefully.
