Google+ Doesn't Really Threaten Facebook/Twitter

I honestly don't see how Google+ threatens Facebook. I don't think I'll ever use one OR the other. They'll be used in tandem. Does everyone you know shop at the same grocery chain? No. Which is why not everyone you know will use either Facebook or Google+ (or Twitter). They'll both grow and innovate. I'm sure 90% of their users will actively use other services as well. Now someone just needs to develop a super web app that puts all social network sharing and news feeds on one page ^_^.

Plung'd Into Square Foot Gardening

I finally made the plunge. A few weeks ago I put together two square foot gardens. I don't know if I'll be posting updates on their progress, we'll see, but I thought I'd put this small post out there to encourage others to follow suit. My recommend'd text is Mel Bartholomew's " Square Foot Gardening ". It's been an excellent resource. Here're my gardens with a list of what's in them. (I've yet to trim the weed guard that hangs over the edges. It will be trim'd someday!): This one's got: zuchinni, squash, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, roma tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, and cucumber. This one's got: silver corn, jalapenos, spicy peppers, string beans, red onions, broccoli, cauliflower, and cilantro. This is my wife and my first foray into any sort of gardening. I'm sure it will be a learning experience. I've got these two boxes position'd perfectly between my rows of sprinklers. They get douse'd every night
