• About Me

    I’m an opinionated Grumpy Old Man. I enjoy the intellectual give and take that goes along with that, but have very little patience for stupid people (Note: there is a big difference between “stupid” and “educated”. Some of the stupidest people I’ve ever met have a PhD…). Beside arguing, I like to build things in almost any media. Right now I’m mostly building in wood, Lego, and a bunch of different electronic media. I teach in a number of different venues - from preschool all the way through graduate school. Subjects range from talmud to neuroscience to engineering.

    For fun, I like to bash people with swords (OK, so they’re made of foam. It’s still fun). Although I spend a lot of my time in a wheelchair, I manage to keep pretty active (Like bashing people with swords). I am a libertarian, and have a hard time finding anything good to say about government or politicians. OK, politicians might make good sausage, but that's about as good as it gets.

Monday Manifest: Things in my garden

In the spirit of the season, here are some of the things that I found in my garden over the last week:

  1. Beans. Lots of Beans.
  2. Even more peas MMMMMMMM. Sweet…
  3. Horseflies. They hide until you are busy doing something, then come chomp an ankle. Ow.
  4. Baby eggplants, squash and tomotoes (and lots of other stuff). Not edible yet, but they swill be soon.
  5. Little tiny baby radishes – both red and white. They are still in the “string for root” phase, but are they ever yummy!
  6. Did I mention Peas? something like 2 QUARTS a day?
  7. Manure. Yep, after hauling something like 8 yards of manure to line the beds, I’m guessing I’ll be finding it for the next coupla years. At least the top layer of earth keeps it from smelling….
  8. Blueberry bushes. The sticks I planted this spring (with the help of the Small One and the squishy monkey gang) are now honest to goodness bushes. SMALL bushes, but still bushes. Maybe next year we’ll get some berries.
  9. Hardly any weeds. The wonders of raised beds filled with nice hot-composted dirt. Wonder how long that will last…
  10. Lunch. My lunchtime routine is to go out and water the garden. While I’m hanging out spraying stuff down, I pick what is ripe, and eat it. If you’ve never munched organic produce right off the plant, you’ve never had real vegetables. Even the dog loves them.

Happy Monday, and good grazing……
