The blueberries are dead!

" ... After the 80 degree days the blueberry bushes began to bloom. And then 7 nights of subfreezing temperatures damaged most all blossoms. We have experienced nearly a 100% crop loss. We do not expect to be open for picking this year. Watch for further updates as we assess the damage ..."

This is terrible news for blueberry-heads like me.

The boy becomes an eagle scout

I don't understand Boy Scouts but I love my son.

For the past 10 years he's been a scout. At first I thought it was all about the uniform but it turns out that he loved the camping and getting merit badges and now he's an EAGLE. He got a special pin and a plaque and a framed certificate and letters of congratulations from politicians and a U.S. flag that flew over the capitol at his ceremony last week.

There were two kinds of barbeque served -- pork and venison -- and a decorated cake. It was a good time.

Jack, I'm proud of you.

What do YOU like to do with Peeps?
