How hard can it be?.................
Concrete Floor - 5 December 2010 This is the time year when there is not much to be done in the garden. I have
finished the digging and spreading of manure, so I thought it was time to tackle one of the rooms in my house that needed some renovation.
A New Pub - 1 December 2010 My village of Samodiva has about 300 residents, and yet can support 3 different watering
holes. I am all for it. Just recently a new place has opened, I say new it resembles someones old shed, has seating for about 10 people, and is nowhere near anyones house.
December is here along with the colder weather, not much happening in the garden this month, the promise of lots of snow to come! Time to get out the skis, and
