I'm still here...  I've been canning cucumbers and making sauce out of 
the tomatoes.  My herb garden is doing well, I'll be making pesto next.  
The blackeyed Susans, verbena and impatiens seem to be doing the best 
out in the flower garden.  The weather has cooled down (to around 88 
degrees) and it's been raining.  It's unusual for August in North
