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.

I Guess It's Better Than Osama

Virginia Senate candidates Mark Warner and Jim Gilmore both participated in a Labor Day parade through Buena Vista, Virginia, right next to Lexington where I went to law school. Although the Senate race is not expected to be particularly close (Warner is the strong favorite), the presidential race was apparently a big topic of discussion. It's an area of the country that's not exactly full of Obama's strongest demographics, but nonetheless, he seems to be catching on:
When Mildred Hartless, 78, was asked whom she plans to vote for, she responded: "Bahama, Omama or whatever his name his."

"I like him. I really do," she said, adding: "But I really like Warner. I hope in four years or eight years, he is running for president. "
Hopefully she'll figure it all out in the voting booth.
