Our Beefeater

With the Olympics going on in London there have been a few features on TV about the Tower of London and the Yeoman Warders who serve as guides.   I was reminded of our visit on July 14, 2000, and the excellent guide we had.  I didn't remember his name but I was able to read his name tag and did some Googling to find out he is Mick Casson  who served as a Yeoman Warder for 15 years, retiring in 2003.  He still gives talks about the Tower and his experiences.

Sunday Wildlife

 Deer down in the stream, raccoons in the foreground
This is the first time we've ever seen raccoons out back.  They have probably been around but we saw them today.

Bastille Day Horseradish!

Today I dug, cleaned, chopped, processed, and jarred about three and a half quarts of horseradish!
