We went for a long walk on the beach this afternoon and picked up a fistful of fresh kelp leaves to strew on the potato seedlings. They will love it.

Been a busy weekend!

MOM is going to love sitting out on the porch this summer, the new flower bed by the porch will look so purty once the seeds come up. My budget doesn't allow for bedding plants so we'll have to do it the old fashioned way. Like in the veggie garden, where the tomatoes and eggplant and squash bedding plants were augmented with seeds for other squash and onions and oregano and carrots.

I love watching seeds grow! It's even more fun than watching paint dry!

Problem is, 'round here the librarians are likely to shoot back. See my earlier remarks about the Library Pistol Team that's a-bornin'.

Eleven librarians up against the wall,
Eleven bookish librarians!
You fire a round and one goes down,
That leaves ten librarians up against the wall.

6.0221415 × 10^23 bottles of beer on the wall
6.0221415 × 10^23 bottles of beer,
If one of those bottles should happen to fall,
6.0221415 × 10^23 - 1 bottles of beer on the wall.

Feel free to join in the song.

98 bottles of beer on the wall
on the last line before I hit send.

Though now it is
97 bottles of beer on the wall.

And there was the Nine, now flying past!
And there the crowd, gone mad,
ANd they started to yell, "Come On, Big Mom!!"
With everything they had.

But there was no way, any jock could see
For Big Mom to make that draw
For Big Brown moved with the longest stride
Any horse-man ever saw.

And he moved with speed and he moved with grace,
Like a shell from a well-oiled gun
And the betting men cheered in spite of themselves
Knowing down deep he'd won.

Then suddenly, the Nine came down
Like a flag from an angry Zeus
ANd the thunder of the cheers rose up
In the thunder of mighty shoes,

And the clouds of dust were whipped aside,
As fast as light in the night
And Big Brown whipped across the Nine
WIth another horse on his right

But it wasn't what they'd thought it was
Just aft the right of him;
The horse that moved in his very steps
Was the the brave Bright Glim.

For Glim was third!! And in her place
Like a well-aimed flying bomb,
Came loping up in second place
Implacable Big Mom.

Ten thousand breaths that had been held
Were let out as one breath
Ten thousand hearty voices yelled,
Loud enough to shatter the deaf.

Ten thousand kerchiefs waved in the sun,
And ten thousand spirits prayed,
As the rounded the Nine and went for the line,
AT the dawn of that summer day.

A buddy and I went flying this morning, from Gillespie Field out in El Cajon. We had a lovely li'l SkyHawk, and we zipped away from the surly bonds of earth, which are particularly plangent in El Cajon, and ducked past the edge of El Capitan, over the high eastern ridges that form the guard wall of the region, and down among the high canyons and valleys of the mountain passes and --swoosh!--down into the Anza Borrego desert. We did a few touch-and-gos and went over to the Agua Caliente airstrip for a look see, and then back over the hills and into El Cajon and down to earth once again.

It was loverly, but it feels very strange to be 4,500 feet up, looking down on the kingdoms of earth from a seat in a vibrating tin shell...very strange.

I'm not surprised. Everything is going up. When you were the low end shopper to begin with (did you hear the NPR interview last week where the woman had to stop buying organic veggies at Whole Foods?) there isn't a lot of wiggle room. More seeds and more garden space committed to veggies.

Oh, yes! When I paid the contractor yesterday he told me that we were lucky: the price of roofing shingles have just jumped US $20.00 per square and more increases are expected. He's honoring the costs for the jobs he's bid, but anything new is at the higher rate.

Oh, there are already soffit vents.

To create the gables venting, ridge vent shingle were fastened that anchor to both the fascia board and the roof, overlapping the fascia.

                        shingle > /
                        shingle > ||                                   |                                   |
Because the shingle used is a vent shingle, there is a slight gap between the shingle and the fascia (yes, it's been insect-proofed) that allows the house to "breathe."

It kinda give the house a thatched look, too.

So the ridge vent is only on the gables, not along the top ridge line? I have it on both ridge and top of the gables. Plus vents in the soffits to help with ventilation.

Actually, it's vented at the gable edges. That is, where the roof edge is /\ a ridge vent was installed that overlaps the fascia. This is much more practical out here because it cuts down on the dust that blows in while providing the necessary venting for insulation efficiency. It also protects the fasciae from the weather and helps to anchor the roof shingles.

I hope this is clear.

I started a new thread with a nifty site called Muckety.com where you can explore the connections between individuals, organizations, locations, etc. It seemed too good to keep to just ourselves.

I tried quite a few names and I only scratched the surface. Some of the names I ran were Harlan Crow (the Google search that let me hit the site to begin with), Bill Gates (III), Dick Cheney, Rupert Murdoch, Bob Dylan, Bill Clinton, and when you click on any of the links this site maps it they rearrange themselves. You can get the names of folks who rent apartments in the building where Murdoch, lives, etc. It's like following a Google map of people and places.

Or standing on a peak in Darien
Our Gluon views the measured World of Man
Stretched there ahead, as far as he can see;
Reflecting, lifts his off-hind leg to pee.

More things than even Gluon sees,
More than in Rapaires glib philosophies,
More than in Bush's anal-cranial impaction,
Are the far ranges of pure thought in action.

Thus stranger be warned, upon a like high hill,
As you survey the World, in raiment shrill,
Shining like gossamer sunlight on a pond;
And think--oh, think!--of what's beyond!
