what ever is Burning man?

LiGruess cara ~~~ Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming "WOO HOO what a ride!"

usually do not do too much traveling in the summer because of gardening activities. But I will be attending a nephews wedding in Mendocino CA in September. So I need to plant the beans early to get them canned before Sept...

Google "Burning Man" and you'll find loads about it.

One of the main themes of Burning Man is that an entire city springs up in the desert overnight, is alive with activity for a week, and then disappears without a trace. There are also art themes and parades and celebrations and of course, the burning of the man. Really, it seems like a fairy tale to me. I would love to go.

I'm planning and hoping to be in another apt before or by then.

And have Deuce staying with me - with the both of us enjoying "those lazy hazy crazy days of summer"!!!

With the exception of deep, dark winter (January), every other month is summerish to me. I tend to look forward to the shore days of May-Sept, indeed...but I like to travel any time I can get enough wind in my sails.

Lou and I are returning to New Orleans in early April for 5 days. 5 days of music, food, booze, music, food and booze.

I always host a big cookout/hot tub party Memorial Day weekend.

We've got shore plans for early July in Ocean City, NJ. We usually head down the shore every Saturday for Belmar.

I'll continue to work in the gardens, cook on an open fire, drink to excess and wind the night down in the hot tub, beneath the stars.
How can we sleep while our beds are burning???

Getting hopeful about getting away from the north east.
If I don't make it to an aquarium, I'll scream.
By the end of summer I should have the cookbook together.
Family gathering in PA.

Lots of BBQs at the park. We can't have a grill on our balcony...so it will be trips to the park...
No beans unless they are green or jelly...

Nothing very exciting here. Buck and I will probably do as we always do...sit on our big front porch in the evenings, where we play on the laptop, listen to the outside critters, enjoy "adult" beverages and each other.
