Today is June 2.  On this day in 1886, US President Grover Cleveland married Frances Folsom.  She was 21, the youngest First Lady ever, and he was the only president to be married in the White House.

Yesterday was Oscar the Grouch's birthday.  I'm sorry I didn't know in time to give you a heads-up sooner.

June is National Ice Tea month.  Here's how we make our ice tea, and it's quite delicious -- and very easy.  You might like to try it.

If you're looking for an outing for the weekend, consider attending the Mother Earth News Fair at the Puyallup Fairgrounds.  They're billing it as a fun-filled, family-oriented sustainable lifestyle event.  The schedule is full of interesting seminars, with a track of hands-on events for the kids.  We plan to go on Saturday; maybe we'll see you there!

Hey, one more thing!  What's happening in your world at three minutes to nine?  Pick up that camera and snap a few pictures to share with us.  You can send them to  I'm looking forward to hearing from you!
