Easiest way to cook corn on the cob!

I found this youtube video and since it is getting close to that time of year where corn on the cob is plentiful I thought I would share the link.  Here it is!  Clean ears every time.

Vertical Ridge Vest

My friend Lyn got her pattern published!!!  I am so excited for her.  If you go here you will understand why.  If you are a knitter you will probably want to put this on your to-do list!  Nice job Lyn!

Robin Nest

A couple of weeks ago I noticed that a bird was building a nest in my jackmanii clematis.  She chose a horrible place to put her nest (in my opinion).  It is located right where everyone has to walk when coming and going from the house and I figured she would abandon this idea when she realized how much traffic there is constantly passing within a couple of feet of her nest.  I checked about a week later and found there was 2 eggs.  The next day there was 3.  Today she has 4 eggs.

The nest is right in the center of the picture and surrounded with leaves.

When I stand on tiptoes I can see the eggs.

I'm glad it was a Robin that chose this spot for her nest.  Their eggs just happen to be my favorite color.  Her nest will soon be surrounded with beautiful flowers!
