(ok, I have a thing for rocks--not shells, not really sea glass, but rocks! strange, but true!)....one geocache was on an island and the tide was almost two far in to get back! didn't get wet though! So, I've been caching for almost 14 months and just went over 200 yesterday. If you've even the least bit curious about it you should look into it...it's a great thing to do if you love the outdoors, and except for buying the GPS, it's FREE!
I acually helped a group that had come into our local wal-mart a while back. First time that I had heard of it and most definitely anxious to try.

Ok, Molly, now I KNOW we're twins! I have collected rocks since I was 2 they tell me. I have special rocks all over my house. No-one knows a thing about them, but I can tell you about when and where I got most of them! How cool!

And 7th, that is really interesting! Thanks.

LOL, I'm here. Been busy all week-end. Had to get up on the roof and run the brush through the stove-pipe, get it ready for the winter burning. The creosote build-up wasn't too bad though, seems less since I changed out the rest of the external single-wall to the double-wall insulated stainless. Had a chimney fire a couple of years ago and it scared the bejeebers out of me, looked like a jet engine on after-burner.

Cleaned the gutters, cleaned the back deck and did a bunch of other stuff. Sometimes I work harder on the week-ends than I do the rest of the week.

I sit here and read the posts, the last few days were filled with errands and household "stuff". I don't always have much to add, sometimes I'm not well informed on a subject (in which case I learn) other times I find the subject is well covered I love reading and I am around,...lol . Today is cloudy and raining off and on. I'm going to pull out the big mixer I think and make bread.

Actually Wild Blueberry (low bush variety). And for 2000 it was the highest tonnage Maine has ever produced at close to 110 Million pounds. Most years it hovers around 60 million pounds. Michigan leads the nation almost every year in high bush blueberry production and overall blueberry tonnage. Personally I like the wild ones a bit better, more flavorful and just the perfect size to add to baking. (Stats from the USDA. gov website.)
