A happy and blessed Feast of Eyebrow Mites to you all!

In today’s Hidden Almanac, Rev. Mord told us about some interesting events that occurred on this date in history: 35,000 years ago, a cave painting was painted; in 1956, Mary Swanson vanished along with a lost city.

In the garden, don’t plant all the vegetables. Just the ones you’ll eat. Be selective.

In the garden, everything is green and makes you feel good. Assuming you have a soul. It’s cool if you don’t.  The Rev. doesn’t judge.

In the garden, fuchsias are in season, assuming you’re in the right climate. Otherwise, don’t bother. The Rev. snarks on interns who don’t water the fuchsias.

Today’s sponsors were Red Wombat Taco Company, and Thinking Ink Sentient Tattoos (does Cecil have one of these?!)

Walking On A Tight Rope

In today’s Hidden Almanac, Rev. Mord told us about some interesting events that occurred on this date in history: in 1902, an exhibition of the Art Tableau style of furniture was put on at the Royal Museum; in 1945, the Madonna of Leaves was seen by a schoolful of small children; in the 12th century, the island of Stonybirth sank into the sea.

In the garden, the chickweed has gone to seed, so now you’re screwed. But the Rev. puts it more politely.

Today’s sponsor was Red Wombat Tea Conglomerate. The Rev. also includes a shout-out to his former intern, who is now the Queen.
