Jeri, last year was my first (ever) vegetable garden. It was awesome and very prolific. We canned and canned and canned all summer. It was great. This year wasn't so successful, too dry and hot. That's funny, isn't it? But it was, and I only got about 8 jars of green beans for the whole summer! And tomatoes, they just didn't do at all. But I am looking forward to next year, always optimistic.,

George, my family is everything to me. They are what I'm thankful for today, on the U.S. Thanksgiving Day.

All that issue about the jug is certainly funny, but when I was a little child I was looking at that old cream-jug from the distant 60-es in the dining-room's cupboard and I was sort of real intreaged by it. I thought there's some mistery in it. As if that mere cream-jug kind of imbibed the misterious history behind and mayby future ahead... At that time I was certainly more absorbed by the history it might had observed behind.
Oh, please say hi to your mom. grin

Hi Al and FlowrLady! I was in Prague and to other places in Czech Republic. FlowrLady, Olympics is quite far from my place in Sochi - it's about 50 miles to get there and I usually try not to travel to that part. But I will try to get a sneak peek, when back to my southern home. However, it will probably happen not earlier than April or May.

LOl. Yours aren't that big! LOl The one Russia recently had was like 20 times more powerfull than the cold war nuclear bomb. But it exploded above the relatively unpopulated area at approximately 15 000 ft altitude. They still search for the main fragments- the scientists assume the size of the biggest that reached the surface is about 20 inches in diameter. I once purchased a fragment from the Sikhote-Alin meteorite ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sikhote-Alin_meteorite ) from the Moscow Geophysics institute- it's half inch and I payed about 30 bucks for it.
Here's the pic of it.
