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.

So the Beatles' "lost track" has been found and Paul McbloodyCartney feels now is the time to spring it on the world. It was felt the track was too "out there" to be released but now apparently the world is ready.

In other news I was trying and failing to clear some things out of my room when I came to reading some old exercise books. Old essays, notes, doodles, and the beginning of a story about some woodland animals being excited about the prospect of Winnie the Pooh coming to visit their wood. When I say exercise book, this was not a primary school book, it was from when I was in Michigan, so I was 22. It was about a page and a half. I didn't read it all, but could see that it is not complete. I have no idea why it was in my book which was used for my class on musicals and the Holocaust in film. I'm back at my pad now and didn't bring it with me but I remember one sentence went something along the lines of;

"The only animals who didn't show any excitement over the impending arrival of Pooh were the squirrels. This was for two reasons. One, they knew that Pooh wasn't coming, and two, if he was coming, they wouldn't have cared anyway. The squirrels had a different agenda to the other animals, an agenda that would soon come to fruition".

I think this little project needs to wait a little while longer before it finds it niche market...
