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.

Schizophrenic Bumper Stickers

On my way in to work this morning, I saw the following pair of bumper stickers on a car: "Pray for Peace" and "McCain '08," which it seems to me translates into "Pray for Peace, but Vote for War." This is not as good as my all time favorite pair of bumper stickers, which I saw on a pickup truck sitting at the bottom of the Fontaine Ave. off ramp from the 250 Bypass in Charlottesville: an American Flag sticker that said "United We Stand" next to a Confederate Flag sticker that said "The South Shall Rise Again." Seems to me that these folks are either wonderfully ironic or frighteningly dumb.
