Without native bees we would be far, far worse off than we would be if the European honey bee were to be wiped out.

I have missed Vietnamese food since moving back to the sticks. A buddy was going to Jackson, MS today and is bringing me back some takeout Vietnamese food. No lemongrass tofu though, .

Hello. Just finished a 13 page paper on John Wayne Gacy. It was supposed to be 10 pages. I was 9 pages deep before I mentioned his first murder. Dang, could have been 25 pages if I wasn't procrastinating.

We have an excellent Vietnamese restaurant in DeKalb. Bea's Wok and Roll. Great and Bea is awesome. A little bundle of energy.

Interesting case. He lived in Des Plaines, Illinois. Right where I spent my teen years.

A Korean restaurant opened in a town near Bumfugg a few years ago. I checked out the menu. It was mostly organs.

Got the house cleaned, the laundry done, and the pantry loaded with stuff I can cook and eat with one hand, because that's all I'm gonna have for a few weeks.

6:15 in the am they are gonna glue or screw, or bolt, or duct tape, he!! they might use spit an baleing wire to put my shoulder back together. The docs say they are gonna fix it right this time.

So be prepared for pain med induced posts, and more importantly for me to be out at the trap range next spring hopefully not flinching from pain, and whooping all comers!!
