* My Pecan Trees grew leaves on them overnight.  One day bare - the next time I noticed - full of leaves.  Maybe I'm just not observant.  Blackberries do ripen in hours - this I know because today I harvested them about four times.  I ended up with about a half gallon of berries today.  

* I helped out my friend Wanda today.  We picked up a used sleeper sofa and brought it to her house.  $35 - it was a deal.  Luckily it wasn't huge, so we were able to handle it.  Her husband was at adult day care - it was his birthday.  I thought it a little strange, but it's an upbeat place - so I guess she figured he'd enjoy being there. She stopped at the grocery store and got him a cake on the way.  He's 84 years old.

*  My neighbor was good enough to give me one of the many monitors he has on his lanai since mine was so bad it made me dizzy to be in front of it too long.  This will do until the time comes to buy a new computer.  I did splurge on a speaker system (if you want to call $24 a splurge).  I love internet radio - and it comes though great with my connection.  With the speakers and sub woofer - it really sounds nice.  I justified the speakers since I avoided having to pay for a new monitor. :-)

* Jason Castro pretty much blew it tonight on American Idol.  The only way he'll make it through is if Howard Stern decides to tell all his listeners to vote for him.  Too bad - he's got talent.  Just a bad night for him. 

* I made a profile on an online dating site!  I can't believe I actually went through with it.  I'll probably delete it tomorrow.  It's at which is a free site. I was honest in the profile and didn't jazz anyting up, so I'm sure I will get zero notice.  It's all good though.  It was a big step for me to do that (and with a pic!) Whoa! 

So, yeah.

This link was posted in Compst Wackos.  This woman could be my sister.  It's 27 minutes long, but you can tell from the first couple whether it's something that would appeal to you or not.  I was glued to the screen until the very end.  I'd love to learn more about her rain barrel system.
