Okay - its hard to imagine a perfect day in town, but it was a good day.
I should point everyone to my brothers site
to look at the amazing pictures they've been posting.
The cover of McLean's Magazine - which I haven't read any of yet - bears the ominous title of "World War 3". Certainly, the crisis in in Lebbanon is a frightening development in a series of Middle East/North African region conflicts. Perhaps, the title jars me because of the truth beneath it. No question that half the problems in the Middle East have been exacerbated by world wide meddling with the Americans and Russians cold war legacy high on the list and European and Multinational bussiness not far behind. I'm actually fairly ignorant of the situation, but I suspect that the little I know is but the tip of the iceberg of what I don't even want to know. This conflict bears little similarity to earlier wars this century - if you can even draw many parallels between the 1st and 2nd World War. But I guess this time most everyone has a finger in the pot and at the very least a stake in the oil supply. I guess this is not a good blab to put under the heading of perfect day - but I was refering to the day the photo was taken 3 weeks ago.
Aside from the disturbing headlines - today is a minty-herby day. A 25 cent herb sale at the superstore allowed me to pick up 12 pots of herbs including orange mint, pepper mint, chocolate mint, lemon thyme, green and purple sage, bee balm a maybe something else. Heck - I might go back for more - except that we don't have anywhere to plant them. My attempt at growing herbs from seed ended with no sucess - but this could be the beginning of a herb gardan - and the soil I picked up could make it possible to reseed the lawn.
Anywho, enough rambling.
