Getting out

Keith sold his Honda Mini Trail (cue: sad trombone), so he graciously agreed, the sale coinciding with Payday, that we could make a trip to Missoula to acquire new vĂȘtements.  We were both a little blurry-eyed at 5 a.m. when we left and started upriver toward the Montana border, but with scenery like this it's not really all that bad.

Our friend Mike showed us his Jeep that he's converting to electric as a marketing tool for his solar business. It's pretty sweet. He was partnering with some students in a local welding/machining class to get some part of the motor going, but he's on hold since it's summer and budget cuts may mean he's on hold even longer.

A funny non-performance art piece was set up near the Saturday Market in Missoula on the morning of the supposed rapture.

Nice to see art where it belongs-on the street

Back on The Farm, everything everywhere is blooming.

The bees are back! We had a problem with some plants not getting well-pollinated last year and wondered if part of it was lack of bees. But it seems they are out and about this spring.

All I've been taking pictures of lately, it seems, are flowers of one kind or another. So I figured this was a good time to update my website. Moved some photos around, made an opening slide show with some new images. In an attempt to save some money I haven't purchased a new domain yet (since my old one was stolen), but luckily the work I put into designing my site wasn't lost at all and is still available here.
