No, sorry children, there is no known link between the two...
This time of year always makes me a little sad. The gardening season is over. Then there's politics.
It depresses me that there are so many qualified candidates who don't get as much support because they are democrats, while crazies (aka less-qualified-but-still-nice-people-in-general-probably) end up getting elected. I'm remembering Rob Bishop. How in the world did he get elected?
Paul Neuenshwander has some jumbo signs up with the word REPUBLICAN across the bottom (in case anyone forgot who they should vote for).
Here's hoping for sane voters (and by sane, I mean those who agree with me) this year.
In other news, I tried brussel sprouts for the first time ever last night. I was pleasantly surprised. I really expected to gag them down. They tasted a little like cauliflower, just a bit stronger.
I wouldn't mind eating them again (as long as they are cooked well, and not too big- I've heard they can be terrible if you aren't careful about only buying small ones).
