  1. Warms the tea and pours Ryrin a cup. Anyone else care for a drink?
  2. 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
  3. 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 tom
  4. 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

  6. "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."
  7. OK, I Googled - I don't remember seeing this one.

  9. 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.
  10. LOL - no posts for days and then we both post at the same time!
  11. 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 ne
  12. Here is a quote from the first movie I saw without my mom: "The hills are alive with the sound of music"
  13. Let's finish this one first. ? Is it "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" ?
  14. The more I think (or worry) about it, the more I realize that the success of the whole series depends on how they cast Loial (at least to me): or
  15. Sounds familiar - could use a hint if you please.
  16. I don't know either. Sometimes I think a spruced up Hagrid and other times a CGI Andy Serkins performance. We'll see how it goes.
  17. Just finished "A Fire Within the Ways" (https://dragonmount.com/news/book-news/unfetterediiirelease/) a must read as it fills in a gap (at least to me) in "A Memory of Light" even though it is not strickly "canon" to the final story. But it is close enough to make me very happy to read or rather listen (now available on Audible) to these deleted chapters. And as an added bonus, it is preceded in the anthology, Unfettered III, by a short story from Dragonmount's own , Jason Denzel (The Stone Golem of Qual'Jom) which is also quite good. Highly recommend both!
  18. An interesting set of actors announced today for the new TV series. It looks like they are all pretty qualified and talented, though we'll have to see how well they play off each other. Interested on seeing Lan and Thom, but the big question remains, who will play Loial?
