Here it is the day before Thanksgiving and I'm going to pick a lot of yellowfoots and some hedgehogs.  Got a bunch 2 days ago- they're coming on.  Didn't find any chantrelles yesterday, but found some nice ones today.   More good mild mushroom weather- ahead and behind.  Should be finding enough to start drying yellowfoots  in a couple of days.  Good weather to go with a good election.  Amazing, the optimism as the economy thrashes around without finding a bottom.  Well, luckily it has not hit me yet.  Things to do and mushrooms to find.  Yummy in the tummy.  Been making a sort of Persian pomogranate  soup with the mushrooms, tumeric, garlic,peppers, brown rice, lentils, cumin, thyme,coriander, onions, ragu vegetable spaghetti sauce and  green vegies.  Sure like that pomagranate-reported to be healthy.  Makes a nice drink, as well as soup.   Put some prawns in tonight's bowl.  Yummy in the tummy.  There, I said yummy in the tummy again. again

Here we go again, fracturing my blog- been posting since May 2005.  Will Humpty Dumpty ever get back together again?  Where will this post end up?  Is May 2005 in the archives?  Ah, post is where it should be, but somewhere out there are some recent posts and stuff.  Let's see if we can get Gypsie's slideshows linked up.  Hoping to see her again in Pai early next year- she already has her ticket to Bangkok.

I am very optimistic about Obama- what an opportunity for the world, as well as such a surprise, if one looks at the longer time frame, as I now can.  These last 8 years have been hard to feel good about our leadership.  It will be good to believe that my president is on my side, the side of most of us/US/the world. 
 like going forth into our future with the belief that my president is an intelligent, talented,  and well intentioned guy.
