NBA update!

Shocking excerpts
from the book the NBA doesn't want you to read!

"If Javie was on the court when Iverson was playing, I would always bet on the other team to win or at least cover the spread. No matter how many times Iverson hit the floor, he rarely saw the foul line."

"Studying under Dick Bavetta for 13 years was like pursuing a graduate degree in advanced game manipulation."
"We were running up and down the court, laughing our asses off as the players got hammered with no whistles. "

a walk around

Strawberries in October? Thank you genetic science.

The tomatoes are mostly done though.

I thought I didn't like kale but it turned out I wasn't using enough bacon grease.

The winter beds. We emptied every single clod of dirt, found and patched the holes in the mesh where the voles were getting in, refilled the beds with new dirt and compost and planted radishes, mustard greens, cabbage and more.

Natty's eyebrows.

My killing team has kicked it into high gear. It's been an endless parade of mice, shrews, snakes, dragonflies, a few birds and the occasional worm. Next up : voles, moles, gophers and squirrels.

Not sure where I got this photo but it must be from CMWC Tokyo because that's Augie in the middle. Looks like a fun time. I was excited about Chicago's bid for CMWC 2011 but I've read it went to Warsaw instead.
