Life got busy, and I just now realized that we haven't welcomed our three newest Gardeners!

Mike Barkley
William Bronson

and
Jay Angler

We're so glad to have them onboard, swabbing the decks, raising sails, spotting spam through the spyglass, scooping up from floatsome and jetsome, and steering the forum to new and lovely places. Welcome aboard, Mateys!





Oh wait, we're MODERATORS, not pirates! Ooops! Um, um, need a better gif....

I don't know how to make this show up. Johnny Depp is showing them a jar of dirt.

I think it's Keith Richards who says, I heard you're putting together a crew. Welcome aboard. Or perhaps it's prepare to be boarded.
Staff note (Nicole Alderman):

You have to click the websites' link from the google search, and then "copy image url" from there. Then stick it in the image brackets [ img]. It's a lot of fiddly steps!



Staff note (Nicole Alderman):

And, then, even when I did that, it didn't show up. What a jar of dirt!

This looks like a job for Superspam.

Notice what a nice job all the organic produce and hard digging has done on his muscles.

Busy here too. Planting time & bee time. Almost forgot seeing this post.

Is that a jar of real dirt Dale? The perks never end. Thanks for the welcome all.

That jar of dirt from Keith Richards reminded me of this old Rolling Stone's song. It has some history behind it. Beware, it has foul language.

Funniest line in the movie, is when Richard says, "Does it look like this face has been to the Fountain of Youth?" Johnny Depp had a tattoo that said Winona Forever. They broke up. Now it says Wino Forever. Keith's other band is the Expensive Winos.

I didn't know sir Mick was capable of foul language. :-)

The ringtone on my phone is the Cocksucker Blues, the ultimate Take This Job and Shove It song.

I've always liked this one I think there's some permaculture in there. Joan Baez did a pretty good remake.
... Salt of the Earth...

Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's drink to the lowly of birth
Raise your glass to the good and the evil
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth
And when I search a faceless crowd
A swirling mass of gray and
Black and white
They don't look real to me
In fact, they look so strange
Raise your glass to the hard working people
Let's drink to the uncounted heads
Let's think of the wavering millions
Who need leaders but get gamblers instead
Spare a thought for the stay-at-home voter
His empty eyes gaze at strange beauty shows
And a parade of the gray suited grafters
A choice of cancer or polio
And when I look in the faceless crowd
A swirling mass of grays and
Black and white
They don't look real to me
Or don't they look so strange
Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's think of the lowly of birth
Spare a thought for the rag taggy people
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the hard working people
Let's drink to the salt of the earth
Let's drink to the two thousand million
Let's think of the humble of birth

Seriously Rick? Seriously? You might as well just read this tiny ad:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
