First of all, Shinga from Breath Spa for Kids is hosting this week’s Pediatric Grand Rounds. She did a really fantastic job in organizing it all. I’m heading there now to check things out.
Second of all, I’m going to soon be opening up a more comprehensive website that has my actual name on it, so that I can promote my writing. Those of you who know my actual name, don’t bother going there right now, it is currently my mad testing playground. Which means it looks boring and doesn’t work.
Third, I’ve given in to my heathen brain and started another blog. Why? For a long time I’ve wanted to talk about life, the universe, and things that don’t exist, but didn’t feel it appropriate to this one, which is supposed to have a stronger emphasis on writing.
And fourth: I will officially open up a writing contest based on my story idea, and there will be a prize. I haven’t written a cool book like Dr. Charles to give away, but I’ll think of something. Details coming soon.
Speaking of Dr. Charles and contests, his tomato contest is moving right along quite well, for some people. At this point, I have no tomatoes on my dear little plants, but they have just had a huge growth spurt and sprouted out a few blossoms. I didn’t plant any early girls, so that is okay. I had never planted lettuce or carrots before. I have three carrots, and two lettuces. Hah! After hearing of this pitiful yield, my mom had mercy on me and taught me the board trick that has been passed down for generations. These seedlings shouldn’t get crusted dirt over them before they germinate. Since thatÂ is gosh darn close toÂ impossible here, one puts a board over where the seedlings are until they sprout, a couple of weeks. I’ll tell you how that goes next month. Oh, and the summer squash is cool to watch – the leaves follow the sun through the day. The batteries ran down in my camera, I’ll get some pictures upÂ a little later.
