Back in Action: Ellen Finally Buys A Netbook

I have gone for three loooooong weeks without a computer and I am happy to report that today I became the proud new owner of a (previously owned) netbook. The only...let's call it my beautiful and practically perfect netbook is that it is a German netbook. And the keyboard looks like this:

I spy...

I was looking for directions on Google Maps today when I realized that Google had just added "birds-eye" views for Fort Collins. So, of course, I went to see what our home looks like.

Doesn't "Variety" imply that they are selling the thing that they blocked out? I'm so confused. Gas Bar. So many interpretations, all of them kind of weird.

Chickens Are Scarier Than Crows, Didn't You Know?

The garden is in!  If our Scarechicken does its job, we will soon have a nice crop of heirloom tomatoes, onions, hot peppers, green beans, basil, parsley and thyme! Huge thanks to my parents for their help getting the area ready. It was a jungle!
