So far yes! Last thursday we went on a Vermont winery and Cheese tour for a day. We had a great time with lots of laughs. Got to pet some very freindly goats at a place called Fat Toad Farm. They're goat cheese and goat cheese CARAMEL are featured at Williams and Sonoma and lots of other places. Did wine tasting at a couple of wineries and after a couple hours of that everything was funny!
I came downstairs on Saturday and noticed a horrible smell in the kitchen. I figured a mouse died under the fridge or something. Soo... I took apart the front of the fridge (as it's a built in and you can't move it) went under it with flashlights, wet vacs trying to suck his little carcass out through the front to no avail! : (  Later I was making lunch and opened a tupperware and WHOA!!! it was the goat cheese!! Almost knocked me over. I told her she needed to bring that stuff out to the back field and bury it deep! I have no such trouble with the wine.

Man, you couldn't pay me to eat goat cheese.

Those photos look great, Dcazz; thanks for sharing  :)

Just curious, I read the post of oil fields, fall foilage....ect. I makes me wonder where everyone here is at/from. I am in Southwestern Ohio. We have had some beautiful foilage this year. But a bit warmer than it should be.

I'm in central/west North Dakota now. Originally from Central New York. The topography and foliage are fairly similar, which makes for a combination of comfort and homesickness at the same time.

The big sky is cool looking especially on a clear day with a few puffy white clouds.

It was a perfect day today so I took a few pictures of folliage. The tree behind my truck is a Larch. It's the only desiguous evergreen and it's turns yellow and looses it's needles. it's one of my favorites!

Well....semi-permanently, I guess. I'll be here at least 'til the kids go to college, which in my son's case won't be for 8 years.

It does get really cold up here! A couple of winters ago the wind chill was 40 below. If you threw a cup of warm water into the air the droplets would freeze before they hit the ground. The kids and I had fun trying it. (Well, I tried it once and then went back inside to the warmth, LOL.)

Wooo-hoo; I am stoked! I had no idea Pete Townshend had an autiobiography coming out -- what a surprise to walk into Barnes & Noble (with a bit of money, for once) and see his face plastered all over. I grabbed a copy before the store door had even shut behind me!

I just finished Dear Boy, so after this I'll probably be Who-ed out for a bit and will go back to Beatles books, because before this I got a bit Beatle-d out.  ;)
