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.

30/30 inclusion?

So Jeff, if it's not going too well with the remote control plane, maybe try establishing this sport state side?

30/30 Update

I tried to fly a remote control airplane, but I couldn't get it off the ground. It crashed into a ditch so many times that it lost a wheel and part of the propeller. I have to buy some replacement parts before I can try it again.

Aside from that, I have continued to watch movies that meant a lot to me at one point or another. I watched A Nightmare on Elm Street, which was the first real horror movie I saw. I was about 6 or 7 years old, and it scared the crap out of me. In addition, I watched the Blu-ray disc of 2001: A Space Odyssey. 2001 was the first Stanley Kubrick movie I saw. I was about 14 years old, and it blew my mind. It continues to do so. Although, after all these years, I think I formed the opinion that the final segment is a deeply flawed conclusion to an otherwise brilliant film. Kubrick ran out of time and money when he was finishing the movie, and I'm convinced that the ending we know is not the ending he would have preferred if he had been able to continue. In any case, it looks fantastic in HD.

I think that's it. Oh, I got a kite and plan on flying that real soon.
