I see that all my old old posts remain on Google and everywhere else. Even though I mostly quit this whole blog experience?

By deleting all that old stuff from my blog I somehow believed I got rid of it. But now I see that I don't know how to get rid of anything. It just stays out there. Forever....

OK. .. I now see that everything just stays and stays.. Maybe some day I might figure out how to have search engines say that a page has been deleted? Right now I don't know how to do that.

Farmer's Markets are here

These trees are in the parking lot on 1st street @ Western Blvd. There are so many flowers on these trees that is looks almost impossible. The photo does not do justice to this scene. But this is about as good as I can do with the camera I have.

This is the newly relocated Wednesday Farmer's Market now held on 1st Street near the Corvallis Skateboard Park. It just now closed at 7PM today. This is relocated from the Benton Fairground, and it switched from a morning market to afternoon from 3PM to 7PM. I sure hope this is a big success in this new location.

This is the first day of the 2009 Saturday Market downtown. It was real well attended and even crowded. The temperature was in the 80's. Wonderful.

Swallows Are Back

Looking out my windows in the past week I see swallows flying around. A very good sign of Summer. Swallows wait until there are enough bugs around to eat before they come back to our part of the world.

The temperature for the past two days has been over 80 degrees. Wow! That is a temperature we sometimes have to wait for until July..

I have drastically cut back on posting to this blog. But thank you for those of you who keep coming back. I posted here daily for the first year but then got disillusioned for a while.

Last week I had terrible allergy problems, but this week it isn't as bad. What ever the particular tree or plant that I am allergic to must be finished blooming? Who knows. I am glad that I can now go outside.

Last week I had to stay inside a lot. I even drove out to the coast on two of those days so I could breath fresh air. Thousands of miles of ocean scrubs all the crap out of the air by the time it reaches our coast.
