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.

Thoughts on the DNC

While the Democratic National Convention has been pretty hip for a political rally, it is decidedly lame for a rock concert. It reminds me of a county fair, or a small town human rights festival. I'm on board with the spirit of the thing, but the face paint needs to go.

Am I the only one who finds close-ups of happy strangers singing along with Sheryl Crow extremely difficult to watch?

On the other hand, Will.i.am performed. What will the Republicans bring to top that? My money is on a Sidekicks style martial arts demonstration by the Texas Ranger himself, Right Wing extraordinaire Chuck Norris.

Music aside, this is all very exciting.
