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.

Captain Marvel

So, it's the FIFA World Cup. Time was when I would've had to post something telling most Yanks about it, but I think that even if you are not a massive fan, you at least know it's on. Advertising does have its uses.

I felt that being a massive football fanI should do at least one post about the pinnacle of the sporting calandar for most people around the globe. I could've told you how you all should be glad* that Ghana dumped the U.S. out of the cup, about the racism on show from the Spanish, about how the English flag is being banned by some, how England are stuttering on through the tournament without playing that well, and how we'll just get beaten by Argentina anywho, if we're lucky enough to get that far.

Instead though, I'm going to post this picture of England captain David Beckham throwing up in the middle of a game. The Beautiful Game indeed.

* Use this to find someone to cheer for in the remainding rounds of the Cup; teams still in are Argentina, Germany, Italy, Ukraine, England, Portugal, Brazil and France.
