I've been listening to THE Ohio State University football game online via the laptop. Had it on the cellphone but it would time-out, showing the message "the show is over". I guess it is when OSU is winning 42-0 at halftime! (Crushing a team they should - it's Purdue.) Right now they're streaming the audio from the Buckeye marching band show at home last weekend - the band performs to music from big Hollywood movies. FWIW, the band is known by the moniker "TBDBITL".

If you are into marching band shows:

There are a couple of rooms on the unit that have lights go on and off if the room has been empty too long. Others have been ghosts that I knew when they were alive, they are not scary at all. Like the woman who came back to greet her husband the night he died, I took care of her the night she died.
I find your words to be comforting. 3 years ago my sister died in our home. She had in home care hospice here at home a year prior to her death. My dh & daughter (14) all still we feel her presence here at times. Last night we had Mass for All Saints day. A part of the mass is remembering all of the ones that have passed before us, again, I very strongly felt her presence in a good way, just very sad, even after 3 years.

I admit I had tears of joy the night she came and escorted her husband home. It is very comforting to me to know they are together and he was not as alone as it seemed. Sometimes I am the only person there when someone dies, I feel that I am not enough for them, there should be family present.

I finally hosed off my composter, which I am giving to a friend. I had to move it when I had the AC installed. I put all the compost in the top half and it's been sitting in the garden like that for months. I finally did something about it. I also had to replant some chives that I moved at the same time, so the workmen wouldn't step on them. I still haven't figured out a good place for the chives, so I piled all the compost and planted them in the compost pile. That should keep the roots from freezing over winter. I'll find a good spot for them in spring.

I remember an old magazine article about cooking a roast in a compost pile from the heat it generates, but I can't believe it would generate heat through a tough winter. That seems amazing to me roots would not freeze when placed in compost.

I'm just hoping it works as insulation. That pile isn't going to generate much, if any, heat. Chives in the ground survive. My neighbour has chives in pots and that doesn't survive. We'll see how it works.

I am wondering what to wear tomorrow as London Irish faces Northampton.

This is rugby.

Tomorrow, we (London Irish) have a new signing. James O'Connor.

He's an Australian.

Australia lost against England today......

I do hope he has need to win - he wants to get back into the Aussie team....

James O Connor - play your best - Australia will be watching!

Mom and Dad grow "compost melons" they are hybrids of honeydew, cantaloupe, etc...whatever melons they toss in the heap. Most of them of them are very good, if odd looking.

I couldn't give a fig for Australia of course (They lost).

But I do care about London Irish.

Tomorrow, I will be at an important game and I am very excited!
