scotto monkeypulse

9274 - Saturday

Shots, and off to southern states to grab a couple of pepper plants - saw an adorable pair of kids. Little girl in riding pants and very friendly, and her little brother who reminded me of JD at 6 years old. We also picked up some thistle seed for the finches (so Pye and Newt have a little outside wildlife to watch)


After that a lovely church wine and craft show... We got a Christmas ornament with a pair of origami cranes (cherry blossom pattern paper) inside of a rounded cube.... and a lovely packet of bake sale goodies. Aggression cookies (oatmeal), molasses and chocolate chip.


Episcopal church had the following on the bulletin board:

The comedian Robin Williams is an Episcopalian, and he has created a funny "Top Ten" List of reasons to be an Episcopalian.


10. No snake handling.

9. You can believe in dinosaurs.

8. Male and female, God created them; male and female, we ordain them.

7. You don't have to check your brains at the door.

6. Pew aerobics.

5. Church year is color coded!

4. Free wine on Sunday.

3. All of the pageantry, none of the guilt.

2. You don't have to know how to swim to get baptized.

And the number one reason for being an Episcopalian:

1. No matter what you believe, there's bound to be at least one other Episcopalian who agrees with you.

I can dig that.


After the Church shindig, we Shakespeare on the Boardwalk - Much ado about nothing. TM's neighbor Kevin was in it, as was Guppy (twin beach players )


after a bit of local and classic culture, we headed home to catch up with The Office and My Name is Earl.


Added a syndicated feed of BHK's favorite meteorolgist - Kim Martucci - I should notify Kim that she's being syndicated here, just so she knows to check. It's not a full feed, just a clip and a link to the main site - which is *quite* active and colorful, if you follow my fonts. Her journal gave BHK a quickie girl-crush on Kim.

also via BHK -

"Artist made a plastic whale skeleton from plastic deck chairs! Also made recreations of native ceremonial masks out of Nike shoes----pretty cool art!"
