I agree with pac that there has been less overall activity for some time now. Also less of that activity is food and cooking related stuff and more off topic.

This winter was really hard on my climbing roses and hydrangias. My beautyberry and weigielias don't look good either. I'll wait a couple weeks to see if any green appears, otherwise I guess it's time to whack 'em. Thankfully there's some new growth appearing at the bottoms of the plants.

I just finished watching Locusts. What a disturbing, dark movie. I hadn't realized Paul Rudd was in it the first time I saw it, which was probably before Paul Rudd started making all those movies.

I need someone to tell me how to care for hydrangeas. The first one died, and I'm not too sure if this second one is alive or not. I heard something about not breaking off the dead branches?

It depends. The older varieties, like Annabelle, can take being pruned to the ground in the fall. The newer varieties aren't supposed to be pruned. What do you have, Carol?

I just finished rubbing and wrapping some babybacks. I'm thinking a little WSM action tomorrow. I even picked up some jalapenos and little smokies. Maybe I'll get a chub of Smith's Bologna tomorrow, too.

Our new Import Market opened this past week, Shrek and I went in a couple of times today. So many people, so we didn't do any serious looking. We'll go back when it calms down. Picked up nori and rice crackers, scone mixes that Shrek can make, odds and ends of jams, marmalades and preserves. Double Devon Cream, Vegemite...that's just what we found on the quick spin around.

Watching BBQ Pitmasters now. They're doing a whole prime rib. Interesting.

There's a fine line between dark, and really dark. I went out and pulled up all the solar lights that need their batteries replaced. I think. Hard to see.

I'm considering going to bed early. As in pretty soon. I know, me who stays up to wake the birdies! Didn't sleep good last night because a leg cramp here and a charlie horse there kept waking me. Ugh! The grocery store didn't have any near-ripe bananas either. Hoping for a better night tonight.

Alix, I hope all the poking and prodding makes you feel good again. Your family should wait on you hand and foot tomorrow - Happy Mother's Day to you too.
