I have been at my job for 10 straight years and we specialize in gardening but I have YET successfully managed to grow a garden!!! I can grow weeds successfully! At least I have a green thumb at something! I just depend on others at work and customers to bring in their overstock of veggies they grow. I will get a veggie garden started and have my grandchildren help me, they have fun doing so but somehow it just doesn't hold up! Maybe this year??? We will see!
Growing a garden is tough!
Good luck, maybe this year will be the year for you. And then you can be the master gardener in our Christmas town!! =]

I was thinking the same thing---if you're chubby in that picture, then I'm the size of Orson Welles!

My sister and I had a wonderful time yesterday at the movie. We saw The Hobbit. I must confess I am not sure how much I liked it. Having read the book and also the Lord of The Ring Trilogy which are all quite charming and intended to be CHILDREN'S BOOKS, I was quite turned off by all the violence in it. The books talked of war and such but NOTHING graphic. In my opinion there is just too much dang violence in movies these days especially in films that are supposed to be based on children's stories. I was very disappointed in that regard. There were parts of it that still retained their charm but the violence and disgusting parts were way over the top to me.
I am glad you had a good time with your sister, I have had no interest in seeing "The Hobbit" because they took a 200 page book and are making it into three epic length movies, I am sure there is a lot of creative story telling to make it that long. I saw all of the "Rings" movies and I liked them but they are not my cup of tea to see three more of that style in the theater. I will wait to see it on DVD.
