If Idaho, I'd plant 'em myself

Baking potatoes are here!
I don't know where you can buy them in the raw but baked and ready to eat - go to HOT POTATO!
It is located in the alley between Leonidas Belgian chocolates (and Village Green) and Sbarro.
They have the strange Israeli favorites such as corn, olives (both kinds), and tuna to top off your tater. I suggested sour cream and chives and told the owner that both things exist here. For 20 NIS you can get all those toppings and more.

Time for Planting

My flowerboxes now have marjoram and romaine lettuce seeds in their soil. I bought seeds and trays to catch the water overflow, and my mom-in-law bought more earth as the latest rains claimed the dirt. No, 'tis not an allegory for anything else.

Perhaps the new year that I have longed for is the New Year for Trees.

Top 5 Reasons Why the Flu...

is better than a kick in the pants:

5. You lose your appetite and save on grocery bills.
4. The heat is on and you have a valid excuse.
3. There is more than enough time for recreational reading.
2. Looking the way you feel is okay.
1. I fit into those curve defining boot-cut plum trousers again!
