Tuesday!

Itzl AlertingAs you can see by Itzl's concerned look, this group is for us to check in at to let people know we are alive, doing OK, and not affected by such things as heat, blizzards, floods, wild fires, hurricanes, tornadoes, power outages, or other such things that could keep us off DKos. It's also so we can find other Kossacks nearby for in-person checks when other methods of communication fail - a buddy system. Members come here to check in. If you're not here, or anywhere else on DKos, and there are adverse conditions in your area (floods, heatwaves, hurricanes, etc.), we and your buddy are going to check up on you. If you are going to be away from your computer for a day or a week, let us know here.  We care!
We have split up the publishing duties, but we welcome everyone in IAN to do daily diaries for the group!  Every member is an editor, so anyone can take a turn when they have something to say, photos and music to share, a cause to promote or news!

Ok, we have a current diary schedule.  If you would like to fill in, either post in thread or send FloridaSNMom a Kosmail with the date. If you need someone to fill in, ditto. FSNMom is here on and off through the day usually from around 9:30 or 10 am eastern to around 11 pm eastern.

Monday: BadKitties
Tuesday: bigjacbigjacbigjac
Wednesday: Caedy
Thursday: weck
Friday: FloridaSNMOM
Saturday:broths
Sunday: loggersbrat

The Marti
Well,
here we are again,
another bigjac Tuesday.

Our backyard garden is doing really well;
brother-in-law Terrell and I took a close look,
and bees are pollinating everything;
the cucumbers are showing,
just below the yellow blooms;
all that's left is to wait for them to get big.

The yellow wax beans are waiting for us to pick them,
and the green beans will be soon.

My plans to eat all this involve bacon:
wax beans and green beans stir fried in bacon fat,
with the bacon;
and the my plan for the cucumbers is
BCT sandwiches:
bacon, cucumber, and tomato
sandwiches,
with mayo and a little horseradish mustard.

And extra bacon.

And two over hard eggs.

My wonderful bride,
Tonia,
is playing a gamer game,
one of those two dimensional games,
with light background music,
nice,
but repetitious.

As long as she keeps the volume down.

Time for bed.

Have a great day,
but great or not,
tell us about it.

We're here to listen.

4:42 AM PT: Hey gang! I know it's not required to respond directly to the diary, but I have an idea: tell me how you would prepare and eat the onions and green beans and cucumbers from our garden. Just salad? Onions in salad? Onions in what? Give me feedback. If you have time. Thanks in advance.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
