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.

Art Attack

So they found out the subject of this painting; popularly daubed "The Ugly Duchess", is actually an accurate portrayal of a real person, suffering from a rare form of Paget's diesease that enlarges the bones.

I don't really have much else to say except I think it is a pretty beautiful painting and she looks very serene.

I think the headware does nothing to help her cause however.
