Welcome to austinagrodolce … My family and I garden with more intention and enthusiasm than allocated budget or overall design plan. It shows. Wildlife populations don't seem to notice our lack of cohesive design, they just like the native plants here. It seems by growing local we've thrown out a welcome mat. Occasionally, we're surprised at who (and what) shows up.

I am already more worried about the folks panicking and throwing the "P" word around injudiciously than I am about getting the swine flu.

Besides - apparently they located Patient Zero today. Here is an early photo...The stress of worrying about getting sick is truly hard on your immune system. Wash your hands, drink lots of water and STAY HOME if you feel ill. Past that there is no point in getting in a lather over this. Except when it comes to washing your hands. Ok, can we move on now? Good!

I've been very lax in my unhygienic past about hand washing. But I must admit this scare has me washing my hands frequently now. And I heard on NPR today that singing the ABC song takes about 20 seconds and is a good prompt to ensure you wash long enough. I think the woman in the public restroom today, though, thought I was a nut. Oh right. I'm supposed to sing it in my head. D'Oh!
