Internet connections

Well folks, that picture was taken in 2005.  Cliff and I were bigger (and I'm worried about my weight NOW?) and Natalie was smaller.  Cliff didn't know his ticker was going to cause him trouble.

I used to frequent a message board, the Almanac chat.  I don't have it in favs any more, but if you type those words in Google, you'll find it.

Every month or so I do just that:  type it in Google and go.

Because there are five or six people on that forum that I care about, and I like to check up on them.

So a couple weeks ago I checked in and saw Stuie's annual sweet corn seed offer.  He's been doing it for years, but I never took him up on it until this year.  Because sweet corn seed costs like, oh, I dunno... $10 a pound?

Got the seed today.  And once again I thought what a wonderful WWW we have here.  Stuie stopped by and ate tater tot casserole with us one Sunday in 2005.  We'll be planting his corn in our garden this year, 2008.

Kind of a never-ending circle, wouldn't you say?

Wow, you are going to have a whole bunch of corn and maybe, just maybe, you can get Stuie to stop by an eat some corn on the cob with you this year.  :)

It is a big old cirlce, this internet.  I think life is like that anyway and the internet helps make the circle a bit larger in diameter.
