This sorta happens to me, but I always want a beer WHILE swimming.
If you always feel ravenous after you get out of a pool, rest assured—it’s not just you. Exercise works up an appetite, but swimming is extra hunger-inducing because it cools down your body.

I have a pepper farm. I think there are two jalapeno, two green bell, and two yellow peppers I thought were banana peppers, but aren't. The yellow peppers have been the most successful, but we've had many jalapenos, too. Only a handful of sweet bell peppers. I am going to look for those mini peppers for next year, spread them out a bit, amend the soil, and look into drip irrigation. I put peppers on everything. I would like to grows those little mini peppers you can get in a bag at the grocery store, but not really sure what those are called.

+Richard Slusher  I have some ever - bearing strawberries too, but they are worthless, except for the occasional bite. I am going to do June - bearing strawberries next year, and just get them in one big batch, then freeze.

Angie and me with my two oldest at Boulevardia this year. We attended two days and saw some great bands, including Nikki Lane, Meg Myers, Kangaroo Knife Fight, and our surprising favorite, Me Like Bees - a great band and an excellent performance under extremely hot conditions. It was in the mid 90s both days, but we kept hydrated and in the shade. Moisture-wicking clothing is awesome. #boulevardia  +Timothy Cote

I am sure after a few brews, you would have enjoyed them too, John!

Here you go, folks...A little round up by Consumer Reports on insect repellents. I've used some of the lower-rated products for years and thought they were pretty effective. Looks like I was just feeding the mosquitoes. Who knew?

For my ham friends, did you know about this sprint? RaDAR is cool and challenging, but this outdoor sprint event is a little more laid back for those who enjoy the "radioing" more than the moving. Haha. I'm building a new portable station with a QRPGUYS key and may just do a random wire fed directly to the KX1. I plan to operate from a park near my home (I've never been to the park), which, similar to my home, is the highest point in the surrounding counties. I am really looking forward to this event. There is a link in this "Second Saturday Sprint proclamation" for details on getting your sprint number (I am #102).  Good luck. Join the QRP Field Ops community for more info and conversation. 73

+Logic Supply I am positive engadget has no idea what "cool" is.
It’s expensive and impractical, but it sure is cool.

Now if they would only turn their attention to beer...

Just thinking of you, +John Rumph.
No more heading to the store to top up your wine supply? It could be possible with this micro-winery someday.

I have an idea. Let's permanently seal the overhead bin spaces on airplanes, or instead of charging me $25 for my tiny checked bag, let's charge anyone who brings wheeled luggage into the cabin $25 for each of their bags.

I agree. Been flying Frontier to Denver. 25 to check a bag. 30 for a carry on. You can bring a back pack on. I think all carry on should be banned and give you one free checked bag.

How many of you remember Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom?  That describes my back yard as three Turkey Vultures guard a dead raccoon from a cat.  Another cat was chowing down on it earlier in the morning, but at the time we didn't know what she was doing.  The vultures dragged it into the middle of the yard from the woods.  Ahhh...Nature!
