There will be a Poetry Fishbowl on Tuesday, May 5 with a theme of "How did I end up in charge?"

Regarding internet, we still don't have full access, but the current projection is Wednesday.

Poetry in Microfunding:

There are two open epics at present.

"Protect the Forests" belongs to Polychrome Heroics: Iron Horses and has 4 new verses. The Iron Horses tell Kenzie about their land.

"Pride Against Prejudice" belongs to Polychrome Heroics and has 8 new verses.  Check out the autograph table and T-American television.

The weather has been breezy and rainy here. We've cleared most of the tree pieces from the ritual meadow.  Seen at the birdfeeders this week: a flock of blackbirds, a flock of mourning doves, a flock of sparrows, a small flock of cardinals, a small flock of rose-breasted grosbeaks, several dark-eyed juncos, several house finches, several robins, a brown thrasher, a phoebe, a blue jay, a male goldfinch in his yellow summer coat, a red-bellied woodpecker, and a squirrel. Currently blooming: violets, tulips, lilacs, celandine poppy, yellow violet, yellow bellwort, jack-in-the-pulpit, honeysuckle, wild cherries, and nannyberry.


Today's Smoothie

Today we made a smoothie with:

1 cup almond milk
1 cup Yoplait vanilla yogurt
slightly more than 1/2 cup canned crushed pineapple
almost 1/2 cup of Private Collection Classic Fruit Medley (frozen strawberries, peaches, mango, pineapple, red grapes)
1/2 cup ice 

This one is pale pink and on the thin side, with a sweet fruity taste.  It's pretty good.  I like this blend of frozen fruit.
