notes from
the MUCK . . .

How does your garden grow? With muck, muck and more muck! I spent much of today finishing the final muck box and then shifting muck from one box to the next. The first box, which the Big Lad is enthusiastically pointing out, has been rotting down for two years now and once we’d removed the top quarter of unrotted material, we found we’d hit the pay dirt.

Hey Presto!!

The Guardian has a great little story about how a guy turned a paperclip into a van. He traded a paperclip for a pen, a doorknob for the pen and so on and so on and now he has a van. He used his blog to do this and eventually hopes to get a house on an island or something. I have crap I can get rid of, and I have time on my hands...

I would ideally like to pool the collective resources of Mathew and Jeff to make things go a little quicker, but I can't speak for them right now...For the time being, I'm going to offer to the world a copy of this picture that sits next to my
desk. It's of a cowboy riding a horse atop a casino in Vegas. It's pretty famous, and I took it with my own fair hand. I will happily come to trade this picture with anyone who makes an offer, ideally in the Putney, London, UK region, but I am flexible.

Post your offers in comments, if this works out, I'm hoping to have a real horse. I promise to let people ride it and/or feed it a sugar lump.
