Today's Update - 25 Aug 2014

Long day.  Looooong day.  Looooooooong Monday. 

I had planned on putting up some stuff earlier in the day and did manage to post stuff here and there but I'm just now able to send out the update announcement.  My brain is still in a blender so this is going to be a bit short.  Hopefully tomorrow's will be better.

Here are some better pics of the banana stalks.  The fruit are still to thin for me to cut and bring in so I just have to hope that the 'coons and possums don't find them too soon.

After days and days of rain we've been without for several and right when we are seeing some record breaking heat indexes.  Yesterday was 93 degrees with a "feel like" temp of 115 plus all the humidity.  Did manage to get a huge amount of brush burnt off but the wind today knocked down about two dozen palm fronds.  I swear two steps forward, three steps back.

Here's the stories that I got some work finished on:

And the Geek Shall Inherit the Earth
I took down all of the posts (there were about four or five) that had the run on formatting.  I'm repairing the posts and putting them back up.

Today's videos continue with the banana theme ... my son loves Monkey Butter.  There is just one thing that I do different from the majority of the videos available on this; I leave out the coconut because some people in my family are sensitive to it.  And speaking of, I need to go get my banana bread out of the oven before it dries out so I'll see you tomorrow.



  1. Know what you mean by trying to get things done and you turn around and there is still more to do or something has happened to make more. Good luck with it all.
    I managed to get a bookcase emptied and moved to the living room from the dining room and a dresser in the living room that was being used as storage along wall moved to the small bedroom where it belonged. Suffered for it later of course.

    1. Sounds like you got a lot accomplished for sure. Moving furniture around is no joke, especially when you have to empty and/or reorganize it at the same time.

  2. That is such a beautiful plant. huge HUGE leaves. Iv been to hawaii a few times and have gotten to see plants similar, but I just would so love it if we had that kind of thing here.

    I remember monkey butter. I made it two years ago probably because of one of your stories lol. it was a hit with the family. I wonder if I have any left out in the canning room.. hmmmm.. that would be good right now!!!
