That horrible humidity has backed way off, so although it is 100F at 11am, it is bearable. Plants are a lot happier, too!
TIME MACHINE ASSISTANT NEEDED
I am leaving on September 30th, 2010, in the morning and plan to return October 2nd, 2010. I am going to June 1983 to handle some business. If you are serious about time travel and are reliable, then please contact me. You do not have to pay anything, but you would have to provide someone to watch my cat for the time we are gone. The only qualifications needed are that you are reliable and that the circumferance of your head is no more than 64cm. We will be leaving from Bozeman, MT. Let me know if you want to go with me.
FREE: CURRENTLY UNUSED URN
I currently have an empty Urn for free. Had containded my pet dog Dino, but my cat Felix got suspicious, and Dino, well you know, fell. The Urn is still nice enough for another loved pet, or a mother-in-law, or relative of similar likings. Email me for a pickup time and place. Thanks, Josh.
If you want we could maybe sing other Paul Simon songs at some point but I'd really rather we stick with our namesakes You Can Call Me Al. Of course I want proof your name is really Betty so when we meet I'll need to see a state issued photo ID with that name. I'll also accept Elizabeth, Roberta or Beatrix. Please write back soon I can't wait to hang out
-Your long lost pal!!!

Green Goddess Dressing:
3 cups mayonnaise
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 cup sour cream
1 cup plain yogurt
1 bunch freshly chopped parsley leaves
2 tablespoons freshly minced chives
1 tablespoon freshly minced tarragon leaves
1 tablespoon champagne vinegar
2 tablespoons minced garlic
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 teaspoon black cafe pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
If you like your dressing greener, increase the herbs. If you like your dressing leaner, leave out buttermilk and add 1/2 cup yogurt to replace it. And if you like it meaner, up the herbs, the pepper (or use white pepper!), and the garlic! Yield: about 1 1/2 cups
