Mmm... ice cream! Sounds good, what kind did everyone order?

Wanna hear the grossest thing that happened to me today?

I was digging post holes to put two 4x4 posts in the ground to attach a gate to. I walked away for a little while and when I came back there were 3 big ugly fat white grubs laying on top of the dirt pile.

I picked them up one by one with the tip of the shovel and tossed them on the grass near the pile of dirt.

The first one I killed with the shovel (I hope PETA doesn't get mad at me about that ). The second one I stepped on to squish it - here's the gross part ----> It popped and white liquid slug stuff squirted all over the place and some of it landed on my arm. Who would have thought those things could explode like that?

Just to let you know, I was in bed reading when my blackberry showed your message. I made out the word grossest thing and had to get up for it haha

Ya that was disgusting. Who knew they had so much velocity.
Ever popped open a green horn tomato worm

(the kids only went for ice cream so late on a school night because we had to go pick up big sister from work)

Is school still going on up there now? Our grand youngens have been out for a couple of weeks or so now. They only go about a half year here all total, it is amazing how much time they get out of school.

H Jim,

The kids don't get out until the last Fri in June which is the 29th this year. Except highschool. They start exams in two weeks so they just go for that one 1/2 day the particular subject is scheduled for.

Everybody returns on the first Tuesday after labour day.

Eight blissful weeks of no lunch making at an obscenely early hour. Eight great weeks of no whining about early bedtime and unfinished homework. Eight relaxing weeks of no driving back and forth to extra curriculum activities 4 days a week. Eight weeks of not having my business day cut in half at 2:45.

Eight long weeks of "its my turn" Eight excrutiating weeks of 'I'm bored"

Last summer I filled their days with camps and evenings with baseball and soccer. We are so insanely busy all year that this year I decided only 2 weeks of camp each and no evenings activites. I do not wish to spend all my summer evenings at the baseball field.

Time for some good old fashioned ..get outside and make your own fun

In my little village with the tiny population we have a school full of farmers kids. A church, A park and oddly, an authentic Japanese restaurant that people come from as far away as the city. Excellent quality food. Toronto is one of the most diverse cities in the world, but my community is still pretty much Anglo. Not that I care..just saying

The best part of Greenbank is the incredible little seasonal bakery. Amazing stuff..all baked on the premises.
I have no recipes to share with you and I doubt the bakery will give them up but,

I just ate the best ever, veg. samosa. Just the right of amount of curry and vegs all stuffed inside the most delicate flaky pastry.
and then I ate

the worlds absolute best butter tart ever. Extra sweet. Made today.
I'm so stuffed. I don't usually like that feeling in the middle of the day, but so far I'm under the radar with my pager.
That hammock out back is looking like it needs tending. Until round two begins at 2:30 that is
NIght Night

Hi guys. Had a tour of this exquisite little gem today. An old converted barn. The owner did all the work himself (except the roof) and he is not even a tradesman
