Illinois Gardener Almost Draws As Much as Eisners Show

I am on a little local public garden show called "Illinois Gardener". I have no idea what the viewership is.

I Love Burritos

Man do I love burritos. I eat 2 or 3 a week. In our little college town we have Qdoba and Chipotle.

I have too much to do in this life without adding that variability in it. To make it worse, accidents are just as likely to be caused by someone else who never even saw you coming.
