As 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.We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group! Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!Monday: BadKitties
Ok, we have a (mostly) finished diary schedule. If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.
Our garden is growing big!
Pam from Calif,
Glen The Plumber,
Free Jazz at High Noon,
The Eyewitness Muse,
The cucumbers are catching up with the green beans!
The tomatoes are coming up from seeds, just fine.
We planted a shriveled potato we found while cleaning Mike's room,
and it's coming up.
We just had a rainstorm,
so the growing will charge ahead.
The cabbage is eaten up,
as are the turnip greens,
and the green onions are a no-show.
Looking forward to the cantaloupe and watermelons.
Still need to plant the eighty onions and the strawberry plants.
Still need to build four dog houses,
for the three dogs and the cat,
and a chicken coop for the ducks I want.
Paid two bills,
and hashed out our budget for the next two weeks.
I wish you a good day.
