Broken Record

What are the chances of a yo-yo event in Cola town, hosted by our own college radio station?
We shattered the damn record. About 900 people turned out. Read the article here. There's some video footage of us on WISTV web-site under featured videos. We made the 11 o'clock news!

Of coarse we all got yo-yo's

Kev sprung for a shirt...for me! No big man sizes.

Everyone thought Kev was the Duncan Pro!

He's macho enough to take it.

ST. Patty's Day Fun and Friends

For the first year in a long time, I didn't made it down to the 5pts festival. I chose to spend the day with good friends in lew of 35,000 strangers. Sharon had her annual St. Pat's shindig with a Beulah's twist. Shamrockin' good time. Got 3rd place in an Extreme croquet match, played with really cute wee Irish, and had an across the street sing-a-long excursion. Here are the pictures:


Kev and Sharon, not party hostess Sharon, but other good friend Sharon.

Elliott from the Untouchables made an appearance after their gig down the hill.

Mutual soul stealing going on here.

Jim, Mike, and Sharon chillin' on the lawn, soakin' up the sun.

Gabrielle and her wee one, Mia.

Katie and Anne way before the sing-a-long.

Mia... "What did you do to get those beads?"

Herb Update

Everything is going well with the little babies. The greenhouse tunnel is built. Transplanted ~100 plants on Saturday. Attempting to root Purple Sage and Lemon Thyme cuttings.
Using a time saving seed tape for Chives this year. It's not cheating.

Potting herbs is hard work.

Seedlings before transplant.

Purple Sage Cuttings.
