Good Morning, All. Haven't had much to say for the last few days. The weather has been beautiful--especially for early April. We had, I think, three days over 80 with nice sunshine. We have had some rain and some wind but not too much of either--although the wind is kicking up a bit now and the skies are dark. Hopefully that will all clear off. I did get three of my containers tented with plastic. They should warm up nicely and be ready to plant when the seedlings are big enough. Everything is coming up well except the poblano peppers, lavender, portulaca and mexibelle peppers. I rather expected the mexibelle to fail. That is a hybrid and hybrids usually fail to produce viable seed or revert to parental types. The poblano gave me only one plant out of the four seeded. The lavender has given me, maybe, four plants. Next year I will simply put all of these on my list when I visit my garden shops and greenhouses.

We also lost one of our 19 year-old cats late last week. He went down hill very fast but died peacefully here at home. We called the vet just that morning to get an appointment in the afternoon to put him to sleep but he didn't last that long. His littermate brother is going strong as is our other cat who is 15.

Easter Sunday was very nice. We had dinner at my brother's house with his family, and my sister and her partner. We came home with enough left overs to carry us through half this week. Nice to see everyone.

The long awaited release of Apple's iPad has come and gone. Evidently most people are happy with it. I am still amazed by the social events this kind of thing can become. People camped out at the Apple Store in Chicago for several days to get their hands on the thing. I am a wait and see kind of person. And I will wait until I have an actual need for something like it before I even think about buying one. Right now, with a new macbook, I don't see any need in the foreseeable future.

Sorry about your kitty -- he had a good, long run.

No IPad here. I have an Acer Aspire that I love!

I'm sorry about your kitty. We lost our doxie 3 years ago. My husband got him for me 6 months after we were married.It was very hard for me when he died but we got our 2 new boys a year and half later. They made it easier. So I know having your other kitty is helping :)

I'm glad you had a nice Easter, I am half Jewish, we don't celebrate Easter. And contrary to what people think being Jewish is a race not a religion. I went to a christian church when I lived with my foster family. But Easter things don't bother me, the eggs, the bunny or the christian view.

I'm like you, when new techonolgy comes out we always wait. As it is, I don't even know how to work the chat thing on facebook. People have sent me messages on it and I don't know how to answer. They problay think I'm a stuck up poop.

take care kiddo :)
