Here's a quote uttered this morning by Margo:
   Wow.  I haven't gone to the bathroom alone so many times in one week for five years!
That's a testament to the fact that children do, in fact, get older.


  1. Great to see you back on the blog! How are the family and farming coming along?

  2. The family is great - boys growing and getting ever more interesting in action and conversation. They've really been our first priority, and getting into our garden house was the second (we're there now). Third has been farming, which is reflected in our meager 150 sq ft or so. Basil is shining big in our lives, as well as our compost piles. We're investing now that we might have lots of the good stuff next year.
    I heard on the radio yesterday that Fukushima is still "hot" - that scientists still can't see what's going on inside because their cameras break in short order after entering the danger zone. Are you guys still impacted by it, or has the serious radiation area shrunk down?

  3. Good to see you back and hope you will be regularly writing for us since you kids are grown up :)
