Hi! Everything here is going well and just about finally geared up for the holiday season. Been up in Massachusettes since Saturday. It's *cold* up here. Glad I switched from sandals to boots on the plane. Will be here till the 2nd of January.
 Hope Y2K is just another day in computerworld and a chance for a great celebration for everyone. If it's not we're going to freeze our butts off up here.

 The garden is doing well (in pots) at a number of friends houses down in North Carolina.
 I'll be finished school in Louisiana the end of February. Having a great time, but looking forward to getting back home.
 Will be heading back up to North Carolina/Virginia in March to pick out a small lot and start a new garden. Will probably need to put a small house on it too ;-)
 I really only need about 400 sq feet of dry living space. What I *really* want is about 1200 sq feet of *greenhouse* space.
 Biggest hassle will be to find a lot with zoning that will allow something like that. I might be able to get away with a trailer/greenhouse combo, but have no real use/desire for a trailer. Would be much happier with a 10 x 20 storage type shed anchored to the ground for hurricanes.  I could add a composting toilet and water/electric to it and be more than happy. 

 George, if you will be free some day on the weekend in January or early February I would enjoy coming up to see you. I'm about 3 hours away in Morgan City.
 Will miss all the Canary Island date palms lining the street when I return to Virginia. The climate in Louisiana is *great*! Lots of boganvilla, tropical hibiscus, different palms, banana plants, etc. 'Course I hear it gets a bit warm in summer. <VBG>

Meryy Christmas, Happy Solstice, Happy Haunaka,
