Greetings happy Readers - How was your week?  'Twas quite warm here.  And wet.  Rain showers on a daily basis in late afternoon. I got numerous tasks accomplished over the weekend which always feels good. One biggie was pulling out and removing a very large root ball of what was once a gorgeous bamboo plant that grew (very isolated) in a galvenized container on my back deck. I think the freeze was just too much for it - RIP. So now that the root ball is gone - I can home something else large and fun in the cool horse trough planter. ** Interesting - none of the nurseries around here carry bamboo any more.  I totally get why.  But I'd sure like to plant another bamboo in the container.  It was cool and tall and floaty. ** Presenting the 12 fun + funny + great recipe finds + fascinating picks for today. The Boston Typewriter Orchestra performance is just SO. MUCH. FUN. Candid Camera's, "You've been Downgraded" is hilarious.

Greetings All  - I spotted a BIG Opossum outside my kitchen window yesterday morning raiding the catfood bowl. Are Opossums supposed to come out during the day?  I don't really recall seeing one during the day. Anyway, it ate (cleaned the entire bowl) and waddled off to wherever.  It was pretty darn cute. I didn't snap a picture to share because I didn't want to open the screen door and startle it away. Being Easter - I told myself that it had scored its kind of Easter eggs on this particular Sunday morning hunt - ha (!!) - and let it be undisturbed. Collected these 12 pieces of fun + interesting + recipes for today. Click away and enjoy!
