What a great featured interview - well done! I had assumed you had been featured long ago so was surprised to see it only now! Yes things are happening here as autumn descends on us. We have had a couple sniffing round our property for months but they won't offer what we think it's worth. If we can find a decent new place for the right price tho we'll accept their latest offer. We're on 40 acres so we're downsizing both the land and the house. The place we looked at last week was nice but on the small side and overpriced (5 acres, 1100 coffee trees, but all the rooms were small and poky). Looked at another yesterday that was much bigger and had the right feel about it. The only drawback (and it's a big one) is it doesn't have ADSL so it looks like we shall have to go wireless, which could be expensive... C will be researching that today... If we can make that work we'll probably make an offer... If we get it I'll send you pics. Poor Teeshah still smelt wrong 2 weeks after his adventure with the cleaner (Chrissy kept hissing at him) but he's OK again now. And I'm still having computer problems - now the mouse doesn't work properly, so it's back and forth between this machine and Carol's. Messy! There. Your're up to the minute with us now lol. xoxoxox.

Swamp Lake sounds good. Are you sure you need ballet shoes? Not flippers & tutu's? : p I'm sure we can do something fitting for Star Wars Day for the library, plenty of time to come up with the right idea. And thanx for liking counting sheep. I had that picture and ust HAD to use it somehow.
We only have a beech hedge in front of the house, and a few flowerpots that need tending. We have had unusual warm temps for the last few weeks over here. Yesterday it was 68F!! The cats spend the entire day in the enclosure!! Today the temps dropped to 50F, which is normal for this time of year. It stay's like this for the rest of the week. Wow!! Big greenhouse :-D I understand you must be excited for that to arrive!! I don't have the 'green thumb' at all!! Funny... we have a similar expression in Dutch. We call this being good at gardening thing 'green fingers' :-D I'm pretty good at putting things together though. Must be the IKEA stuff I had to put together by myself ;-D Sending you fertilizer for both the veggie, and flower gardens!! :-*
I just listened to Iron Horse's cover of "Crazy Train" and you nailed it - it was such a natural for a bluegrass version that it's almost scary! The vocals are not complex, but true to Ozzie's original recording.
Yeah...I don't know how you juggles it all! LOL. I is going from Tokyo to Kyoto/Osaka to Hiroshima....but I get to take the bullet train! That's gonna be amazing. Oh..and we stay one night at a monastery inn...where we have the option to bath naked in public....or as I told my travel agent "I want to go to Japan to bath naked with the monks!" Had to pick her up off the floor. (Though I have no intention on bathing naked in public...not sure the others would survive the experience...LOL) **hedbonks**
Temps and wind are still unseasonably cold, but almost all the snow melted and we're not due for more until maybe the weekend. Punxatawney Phil would have been more accurate had he predicted eight more weeks of winter, at this rate, but maybe we don't know Groundhogese for "Freezing until mid-April, now let me take a nap!" It's a little early to declare victory, but I'm calling the colony all present after what is undoubtedly a winter like none of them had ever seen. Fauxpaws and I were messaging and realized that although we both like bluegrass all right, we never bought any bluegrass albums (how does that work???). On the subject of recognizable riffs, I think all of us, regardless of age, are familiar with at least five classical numbers of which we do not know the names.
