Now that Spring has sprung, how are you going to enjoy it? What do you have planned for this weekend? We have company coming into town today; Jerame and I are taking them on a "redneck tour of Indiana." Should be fun.

Well, we've been getting a lot of rain the past couple of days. If we get some sunshine tomorrow, we should have a really nice round two of wildflowers down here. It does my heart good because it was so dry the last couple of years that I haven't made my usual wildflower pilgrimage.

Cherry Blossoms in San Francisco tend to bloom at the end of January/beginning of February. Poor little bastards are so confused by our city's crazy weather. Cherry Blossom week is one of my favorite times of year what with the scent and color. Mmmm. And the following week, on blocks with a lot of trees, if you squint (and are a bit delusional), all the fallen petals almost look like snow on the ground

We've had spring down here for a few weeks: it's almost summer today (highs in the mid to upper 80s).

It'll be in the 80s here in the Atlanta Area. One thing is to avoid going into Atlanta all weekend at all cost. The Dogwood Festival is happening in Piedmont Park, just as big as Pride. Freaknik is also happening, much to the Mayor's chagrin. At the Georgia Dome with be geek heaven, with the World Robotics Championship, and there is another festival at the park where we have church. There will be an extra 300,000 people in Atlanta this weekend.

So, Darlene and I will stay at home, only to go and walk her sister's dogs on Saturday. Sunday, I'll do yard work while Darlene will go to her parent's house north of Gainsville, GA. We have some DVD's to watch. Just being a suburban, domesticated lesbian couple is our plan.

Weekend yuck time to crank up the mower then relax some and probaly hit the net and check on firends over in Second Life.I also need to catch up on some movies to wtach so yes lots to do and not enough time to do it in!oh yea here in south Georgia the poullen is still a pain on my poor nose but its finaly getting better.

Visit Fairmount Indiana - Hometown of James Dean

I thought I'd pack for a trip to China because that seemed like fun.
