  4. Thom: It was a pretty day.

    Rosidah Abidin: I was thinking of making it a new meme. Should we? You can never have enough new meme’s.

    Hootin’ Anni: That last one gave me the idea for the name.

    actonbell: It can be very pretty and there are lots of things to do.

    G-man: Pat’s or Geno’s? I think it depends on your politics.

  24. Alice: Our Garden State has very few natural gardens left.

  25. That's not uncommon. We live in a "garden city" that is only a fraction as green as Wisconsin, home of the cheese head.
