  1. Yeah. Sagauro are only native to the southern Sonoran desert, mostly in southern Arizona and Sonora, Mexico. A map of their range is here: They've become symbolic of all the southwestern U.S.even though they don't naturally grow in most of it. There are plenty of other cacti that grow all over the place though--heck some are even native here in Michigan (e.g. a type of prickly pear.) The picture was probably from a transplanted saguaro.
  2. Not to get political, but for the past year or so there's been a 20% tariff on imported washing machines, which ups the price about $100 on average.
  3. Interesting... Saguaros aren't native to NV or UT... maybe they pulled a fast one on you and went to AZ instead! I think it's funny when you visit Vegas and they have Saguaros along the drive up to the airport--and they have to cover them in winter because they don't belong in the Mojave (too cold and too dry.)
  4. Got most of the garden in over the weekend. The rhubarb, strawberries and horseradish are doing great. Wife wants to can a lot of tomatoes this year so we have 30 tomato plants. Several sweet peppers, a bunch of tabascos (so the wife can make pepper sauce since you can't buy it up here), a few cucumbers, squash, zucchinis, onion, kale, collards, eggplant, cabbage. Still need to plant the peas, okra and green beans. Probably a bit late for the peas but we'll see what happens.
  5. That's pretty cool! My wife is a big Cubs fan. That looks like Contreras sitting on the left, and it's definitely Baez standing second from the right. He injured his ankle a week or two ago and looks like's he's wearing a brace on it.
  6. Meanwhile in MI, it's almost time to plant. I think this morning was the last threat of frost. Wife is planning to pick up some plants this week. We did have a bunch of collards come up, and the rhubarb and strawberries are doing excellent.
  7. Spend the day planning your next trip!
  8. Darn, we're going to miss leather weekend! And yes, we'll be a little out of our element, but the couple getting married feel very at home there if you get my drift.
  9. This! Mint will spread everywhere. I've seen a house where the whole back yard was mint.
  10. I put a reminder on my calendar, so hopefully I'll remember. In what aspect? Weather?
  11. Bacon and egg burrito from the cafeteria, blueberries and strawberries from home, and coffee.
  12. The wedding is in Provincetown. It's still a ways out so I don't have a schedule yet, but I'll let you know when I have the details. We'll most likely be flying in/out of Logan.
  13. I'll be there in mid-June. I'm not willing to be your drug mule though. BTW, the Buffett concert in October is looking like a no-go for us. We have a wedding to go to in Cape Code the weekend prior, and its a PITA traveling two weekends in a row with having to board the dogs and whatnot.
  14. vs. the Lions in the superbowl.
