i'm actually seeing some chlorophyll returning to the lawn when the sun is out. all the deer and turkey poop probably is helping.
Avatar    Thu. 3/20/14 9:44am Guido (Cologne):

i should be hung over but surprisingly I'm not.
maybe it's because one of my customers offered me more money this morning, if I finally would come over and start my job.

I'm great, Paris it's sunny and yesterday I have seen Julianna Barwick playing in a beautiful church and it was magical.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 9:51am dale:

up near mt. hope transmitter, yes. the snowcover was so dense and long lasting the deer and turkeys came to eat birdseed that fell from feeders. then i felt bad and started feeding corn (illegal to feed deer, i know). turkeys have been a joy to watch, especially the two males who are showing off how sexy they are to the ladies. now that it's warming up they are starting to go away.

@alessia

I once have been told, what we are used to common pizza is actually american style and the original neaples pizza was foldable to be eaten like a sandwich not sorved on the plate (like Turkish Lamachun). Is that true?

Gnocchi is a perennial favorite dish on my birthday. My grandmother would always make it for me.

I planted arugula a few years ago. It actually did pretty well in the heat. It loves cool weather, like all greens. I can't recall if it turned very bitter after the first heat like most greens do.

In Wisconsin, arugula will last well into October. Pretty durable.

i would normally agree with that, but I have had some totally wrong but completely delicious BBQ chicken pizzas. Another place makes a great Buffalo Chicken pizza. ALso wrong, also delicious.

@Guido you aare really a good copy writer!

ah, yes. Great track.
Avatar Thu. 3/20/14 10:34am Alessia:

@bibi I personally sometimes fold my slice but never the entire pizza.
Plus where were you yesterday? Pierre and I got a bit "silly" before the gig and starting to ask to random people "hey! are you bibi?"

Ethnic english here on both sides & never got to NYC until my teens (DC lifer) but the pizza-folding just seemed the thing to do. Thus, nature trumps nurture. I think?
