    • Gaia,
      I chose that particular image, as it was easier than going outside with a camera and doing it myself.

      Spring is here!

  2. Yep, Spring is here.Very pretty pic. Most of my bulbs have already done their thing this year due to the strange weather we have been having. So been busy here cleaning out flower beds and getting the veggie garden ready for planting once again this year.

    • delenn13,
      Funny you should mention that. I am a big fan of vegetable gardening.

      I planted my three tomato plants this weekend (an “Ace”, a “Sweet 100”, and an “Early Girl”, for those who care). All I am going to attempt this year, as varmints have made growing my own a “fruitless exercise”. (Those three will be in an enclosure.)

      • Critters here too..We put up fences and plant herbs they don’t like..keep the majority of them out. We got tomatoes, peppers, beans, radishes, lettuce, beets, cucumbers and swiss chard..think that is all..

        Heard anything about any of these sites? Found them in my travels….

        Windows 7 Direct Download Links

        They make it sound legal..but is it?

        Then this. May give Giveaway of the Day a run..Maybe????

        Daily Software Giveaway

        Can’t figure out when they change software and at times they leave software up for days..

        • delenn13,
          I was not familiar with either of those, and will look into it further (time allowing). At first look, it appears that is a legit download source for the ISO images, and it seems they are not ‘cracks’ or giving away keycodes.
          Should I ever need a Windows Install disc image (for a repair) I would use Microsft’s digitalriver portal. Some direct links are listed here.

          PS – sounds like a nice garden. One like I would grow if not for a squirrel overpopulation (they eat EVERYthing.. even zucchini!).

          • Blood meal(not bone meal) works on regular squirrels not to mention it’s a great fertilizer. However, if you have those little red super demon squirrels….I am not even sure if a weapon of mass destruction would work.
