Good morning, everyone. We may get rain today. The skies are overcast but the temperature is just above 60F. Otherwise I don't have much to do outside. Once the plants are in the containers they just need some intermittent tending (trimming and weeding) until harvest. I still have a few spaces beyond the ones I have reserved for the remaining peppers and the savory (when/if I find it). Sounds like a good day to loaf.

The Agonist asks 'when is a deal not a deal?' When it was the agreement both parties signed on in the Budget Control Act. I remarked that the Repthuglicans would fight like hell to get the agreed on cuts to the defense budget cancelled and, though I didn't say it at the time, it was also likely that the Damnocrats would do the same on the social spending side. Both have proven my cynicism for me.
