So juicy and delicious, you will not even miss the meat!
It is supposed to be super cold tonight, I am hoping all the lettuce and flowers I planted will survive! Hopefully, hopefully when the warm weather comes again, it will be here to stay for awhile!
Earlier this year I had a ski trip fall through and I ended up not taking a vacation day at work. The weather was fantastic – so good that I decided to go fly fishing on the Owyhee River instead of backcountry skiing for a mental health day. I went fishing with my dog (Moose, who is a Pudelpointer). He was pretty good, but would only stay on the bank for 15 minutes at a time. After that he came crashing into the water looking for whatever was swimming around. Overall a great day in the middle of winter and not a bad week because I got to backcountry ski, mountain bike and fly fish all within 6 days. Oh yeah, I worked a bit in the middle of all that!
Here are some of the photos I snapped on the river:
In general, always cover the front and rear bumpers as the last step. If the car cover has mirror pockets, place the pockets over the mirrors first. If you have an old car you should cover the roof and windows first, and then the front and rear of the car. On some coupes and roadsters made prior to 1932, you might not be able to install the car cover at all if you start with the front or the rear bumper.
We know many of you love your blogs, and gleefully publish photos and posts without thoughts to reuse your work in other forms. But we know some wonder: could this be a book? Recently we wrote about how a WordPress.com blogger scored a book deal for You Are Not So Smart. But what if you want to do it all yourself?
As a blogger who has authored several successful books with publishers, and who works on WordPress.com, I recently self-published a book based entirely on posts from my blog. I wanted to see what I could learn, and I’m here to share it all with you.
The book I self-published is called Mindfire: Big Ideas for Curious Minds. It’s a collection of my best essays from my WordPress blog at scottberkun.com, where I write about ideas, creativity and leadership. The book has done well, and has often been…

When purchasing a car cover, there are several things you should keep in your head. The most significant step in buying a car cover is first to choose what you expect from the car cover. For instance, are you just looking to guard the car from the elements, or do you want to keep it from possible dings and hollows as well? The purpose of the car cover will help you determine the level of quality you need when buying a car cover.
As with any purchase, use caution when purchasing a car cover. You may regret purchasing an inexpensive car cover in order to save a few bucks, because these car covers often provide very little protection. For example, many cheap car covers do not provide protection from ultraviolet rays, which can cause a car’s paint to fade. Therefore, price should not be the determining factor when buying a car cover.
When buying a car cover, you likewise need to look for one that is both water resistant and breathable. A car cover should be water resistant in order to defend the car from coming into contact with water. At the same time, water can become trapped beneath the cover. For this reason, you must look for breathable material when buying a car cover. Otherwise, water may become trapped and cause the car to rust or rot.
