Spring Has Sprung

Yes, it’s the first day of Spring as evidenced by the murky soupy low-lying blanket of fog we have this morning. Yesterday, on the last day of Winter, if you could call what we had Winter, it was in the mid 70’s and the sun was as bright as you please.

Speaking about the Flintstones, Seth McFarlane, creator of “Family Guy”, who also got his start with Johnny Bravo, got the green light to reboot The Flintstones for the Fox Network. He wants to stay true to the original show, which aired on that network which shall not be named because of its cancellation of One Life to Live, but will of course be making the stories current. So, where Ann-Margrock once babysat for little Pebblypoo, maybe this time the sitter/songstress in need of a mini vacation will be Lady Gaylussite. And of course there is the prehistoric spin on 21 st century technological advances. I, for one, am pretty excited about this and will be keeping an eye out for a debut date. I just hope they get the voices right or as close to right as they can. It’s not easy for a seasoned purist of the classics, like the Flintstones, and of course, my ultra favorite, Bugs Bunny, to accept beloved images with unfitting voices.

Speaking about the Flintstones, the world’s oldest teenager, 82 year old Dick Clark has listed his Flintstone-esque home, high atop a mountain with 360 degree views of the Pacific Ocean, Boney Island (how appropriate), Channel Island, the Serrano Valley and Los Angeles, for $3.5 million dollars.

 

Speaking about the Flintstones…no, I’m done.

It’s that time of the year to start the seedlings for the garden. We’re planning a better layout this year to make the most of our space. A three sisters plot for our corn, squash and beans, for instance–three crops in the space of one. Using pots for those crops that otherwise overtook the garden–the mint and nasturtium, to keep them more contained.

This year I’m starting my seeds in larger containers so they can grow stronger than those little thimble size starter kits they sell in the stores. And they’re on a waterproof surface, even though the damage was done last year with the water seepage onto the antique dining room table, which I’m still kicking myself in the rearius maximus about.
