a crazy topic i guess, non-food related. am i conceited? dang tooting i am! i shave most days, even  if  i don't think i will get face time time with the wife. i usually use  that stuff under my arms  too f i feel lucky i try some man-stink too. but i am agast at the degree that some live critters prove their worth, to put that in genteel terms. it truly can turn my stomach.. i ride to work with my window down and suddentely innudated with yellow must. what the heck? i roll down my windows to check out the flowering azelas, dogwoods willows, oaks, and who knows what else. i think the plants are just showing off! they make beautiful blooms that also are killers to  folks with  no tolerance of the pollen...i mean, it's like they invite you to check 'em out but suffer later...coated with yella.  a cruel joke, indeed. entice and then repel...teasers they should be called. i'm ready to pollinate and the start sneezing, wth! then i have to groom 'em and fertilize the pollen monsters again to gain their fortune again next spring? well they are beautiful...i guess i'll endure another yella season next year, the wife loves ' i think we should rip all the conceited critters outa the yard, including the lawn and concrete it and paint it green. a beautiful spring in south georgia here just kinda YELLA. hope ya have a beautiful spring too......with no yella.

I love it! Flowers and buds w/ an agenda. And conceited yet!! Too funny! Here in Wisconsin I would give about anything to have that problem. We had about an inch of snow again on Friday. I am so sick of it.... I will jump for joy when we finally see some conceited yella in our neck of the woods!!

Man..we have some big time yella down here in Las Vegas. Just fired up the pool and now pollen and little teeny tiny buds from the trees floating on top, making it it NOT appealing to swim in:( I am up at 3 am coughing my lungs out. Love those allergies.

Spring hasn't really sprung up here in the northeast yet, but I'll know it's here when I go out one morning to find my car coated in yellow-green powder...ugh! Thankfully the only one that seems to give me trouble are my lilacs...but I love 'em so much I just grin (and sneeze and wheeze) and bear it! ;)

We'll have it in a few weeks. You must have gotten your ideas for a concrete yard from my DH. He wanted to throw black plastic over the whole yard and fill it with rocks. I bet your yard is lovely.

The only pollens that seem to hate me are corn and Maple. But then- there's the stuff some folks bathe in- perfumes and man stink. They can knock me down.

LOL! My DH had the same idea with the concrete lawn. I won though but we don't have allergies so I look forward to all things flowering:) Unless you count one to poison ivy.

We have pollen here in Tampa, big time! Guess I'm lucky not to be affected by it all. I think you're a super husband to have taken on Claire's garden. Hang in there, Gary, this too will pass.

Hey, I see you're flying into Seattle in May. I miss you by a week as I fly out for Pennsylvania on the 25th. No more Seattle for me. Bummer. Hope you enjoy my home state!

LOL! I know just what you mean. Missouri is supposedly the worst state in the union for allergies/allergens. The Honeysuckle taunts me every year. I just love the scent and each year, when it first blooms I stick my nose in and take big whiff--then I stay far, far, away the rest of the summer:) I'm with Mike on the man-stink stuff. I teach college and am thinking of spearheading legislating to ban the sale of all AXE products! Here's wishing you a green and sneezeless spring.

Allergies - YUCK! I just got over my annual sinus infection - surprisingly shows up the exact same time (first week or two of May) every year. Of the top 10 allergy cities in the nation, Jackson, MS comes in at #5. And lucky me with the killer sinuses. Good thing I love my home state! Bring on the Azaleas, Dogwoods & Magnolias! I'll suffer through it! And yes, that dang Yella! While it makes an awful mess, that part does nothing to me nose-wise - and with my black thumb in tact, even I can't kill a pine!

Yella greattings from Mississippi.Love it you put it so well. Now me have the 7-year cicadas. What a wonderful song. You turn off the mower and have to look and make sure it's off. I would be under my pecan tree but the dang things are big and have red eyes and their just U-G-l-Y.

Jun. 16, 2011 2:22 pm

About Me
i enjoy cooking. the wife considers it a chore. i hate yard work. she loves it. we mesh. i love bass fishing, reading, music, baseball, college football and my family.
My favorite things to cook
i love vegetables, soups, and italian cusine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
holidays are a big deal! christmas is my time to shine. i try to add a new recipe each year, but the family demands pretty much the same menu. kinda frustrating!
My cooking triumphs
i cared for my mother in law about 3 months when she had shattered her shoulder. i didn't work, so money was tight. we survived on only wife's paycheck during that time. ma-n-law had diet restrictions. it was difficult to make cheap, nutritious meals everyone would eat. we prospered as a family and learned alot about each other's strenghths and weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
a stove top fire. i explained that one already. the grill falling over was another one...oops grill season is here! i love the tragedies...those are the ones that i'll always remember!
