Eavesdropping

Lance and I spent the afternoon at the cafe at Barnes and Noble working on stuff. At the table next to us was an Asian gentleman. Eventually we got into a conversation, and he told us he is writing a children's book. He is also teaching languages at the university.

Honeycrisp

I was happy to see Minnesota's spectacular contribution to the apple world, the Honeycrisp, on the shelf at the grocery store here in Tucson. I bought a dozen, and they won't last long. They were only $1.99 per pound, which is one dollar less than they were in stores following harvest two years ago.
