1. who thought this day would come? after years of michaelmas' generous contribution to my .mac email-only address, carl added me to his "family" to become a full .mac member!
2. though we've been carefully tending the garden in the back, we haven't mowed the lawn since we bought the house; it now softens the edges of the house with a fringe of tall seed-bearing grass. one of the side effects of this neglect has been a steady stream of lansdcaping flyers & cards & solicitors at our door. if i could figure out an attractive alternative to our strip lawn, i'd love to transform it into something else. it's mostly clover, anyway: maybe i can keep bees.
