It is supposed to be close to one thousand degrees here in North Dakotaland today, so I got up early to blog while the weather is still tolerable. I think this will finally melt that little patch of snow by the side of the house and thaw the last of the garden in time for the first frost of fall.
So while we’re baking in our boots, I offer a small gaggle of quick hits and varia for you to enjoy.
