Ah, Wednesday!

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!

If you'd like to be part of the Itzl Alert Network, please leave a comment asking to join, or send us a message asking to join. We'd love to have you. The bigger our network, the less likely someone will be stranded all alone.

Middle of the week day.

Time to be starting seeds and planning the spring garden.  Seed Saver's Exchange, High Mowing, Terra Edibles (in Canada), Baker Creek, Amishland, Terroir, and Sustainable Seed Company are my favorite seed places.

Since I am getting eager to sell my house, I'm not sure how much gardening I will do. I've let many of the beds go to grass this past year.

But I still browse the seed catalogs, planning for my unknown new home. Wherever that might be. In 2018, I retire. I could live anywhere. Well, anywhere warm, that is.  I don't much care for the cold.
