right now my favorite on blunderbuss (partially because of how he sings "swea(t)-in" and "noyvous")

thank you to sofia gatica


congratulations to courageous argentinian, sofia gatica, who has been fighting monsanto for over 10 years and is one of six leaders awarded the goldman environmental prize. (there's a great short video in the article too.)

it is completely baffling and disgusting that monsanto is allowed to continue their "work" (more like greedy exploitation and poisoning), given the long history of their products and actions killing, sickening, hurting people and the earth. the list of their truly evil deeds is so long and so many people fight against them (usually unsuccessfully and sometimes while having their lives/livelihoods threatened by monsanto in the process). how monsanto-ans live with themselves is a mystery.

gave the plants a sun bath while i could keep an eye on the plant-eating cat.

and knitted a cowl this weekend. took less than one skein! may have to do more in other colors

the big trees that line alameda's streets are sprouting green leaves now, flourescent in the sunlight. the spring abundance is building.

in the interest of fairness


thought i'd post some recent dog flickr/tumblr favorites since i posted cats the other day.

this guy above was sniffing around in the plant nursery and would not stand still for a proper picture (despite the fact that the owner says the dog regularly has his picture taken by strangers).

this guy reminds me of a dog my family briefly had, waldo
