I have an orange rose too, but mine is not a rambler. It is a hybrid tea rose called Brandy. Eric likes it for the name. I like it because it is sooooooo Halloween!

Lovely spring garden pictures.

Oh! Poor raccoon!!! She looks pregnant. I hope she got out of that bin.

You've really got to admire her tool use. I don't know what evolutionary pressure made raccoons, or raccoon ancestors, so darn smart. Makes me wonder....

Given their excellent problem solving abilities, it is no surprise that raccoons tend to do well wherever they live.

The plant you wish to have identified looks like some sort of an azalea to me.

New readers may not know that our dear Mrs. Miggins is known as much for her gardening talents as she is known for her baking.

Why as soon as spring has sprung, you can expect to see Muriel in the arboretum fiddling around with a dibblestick.


Yes indeed, our dear Muriel is always busy in the spring aerating,


dethatching,


staking,


or hardening something off.



And don't even get me started regarding what she can do with tubers...

Muriel Miggins is a veritable icon in the hospitality industry.

Very few people know this, but she was into hand-held spiralizing well before it became a culinary trend!

Meanwhile, I wonder (perhaps not for the first time, but if so then with eternal hope) if she ever sends her goodies across the pond to my locale.

Merciful heavens! Such is the hope, I fear, of most men on this side of the pond. Heaven forfend that dear Muriel peddle her wares in a satellite shoppe near the Berkeley lab. Eric and his colleagues would be sorely tempted, I am sure. Mrs. Miggins is quite the master baker, don't you know. There is very little she cannot make rise.

Merciful heavens! Clearly spring is in the air.

Muriel dear, are you back in business? Why whenever you and your employees open up somewhere, it is everything I can do to keep my poor Eric away from your little tarts!

Gee darling, is that Darjeeling?", infused Earl Grey, teasingly...

Tribute simply has to be paid. That is one of Angela's classics, It's a Ten from Len!


Tribute where tribute is due. I did not originate that gem.

Probably about 30 years ago, this line was the winner in the Puns Division of a local Bad Writing contest that was (is still?) hosted each year by San Jose State University.

Unfortunately, I only remember the line and not the name of the author.

Now, not only do we have to worry about why the chicken crossed the road, we apparently also have to worry about why the chicken jumped into the bathtub!

The $65,000 question is, by giving children younger than 2 years old puffed peanut snacks, do you consequently "train" their developing immune systems not to react to peanuts as allergens? Conversely, does withholding peanut products from children younger than 2 years old make their developing immune systems more prone to react adversely to peanuts when the children finally receive exposure? Third option, is there some shared trait common among people currently living in Israel that makes them genetically less likely to have peanut allergies? This last option is less likely, given the short history of Israel as a nation state.


I'll take small, unmarked bills please. :^)


LOL!!! Nice find. I couldn't remember where I had seen a synopsis of this study, but I remember finding it interesting and I appreciate you finding that link. Monopoly money is on its way....
