I put my cowboy out today but Romy doesn't like it for some reason. He complained until I moved it to another location, which could be clearly seen from the gazebo instead of the garage. This is the cowboy that Nicole made me for my birthday when we lived in Carson City.

Romy is internetting in the sun room at night. We discovered that hanging the fan works the best so far in blowing the hot air from the bedroom (which has the fireplace going) to the rest of the house.

My mom is visiting Nicole and Marcel's place for Christmas. She asked her brother (who lives in the Czech Republic) to bring the Czech version of Sorry! called Chlovece Nezlob Se! It was fun! My mom kept winning so we made her a Stalin Award!

This is Tuna the male goat. He likes attention. The other goats in the background are Milkshake and Cheddar. They are female goats. Cheddar is in milk right now. Nicole says that Milkshake must be a lesbian goat.

Home on the farm! This is a male turkey that Nicole raised. He guards the female turkeys. Whenever a human or predator gets near, he will poof up his feathers and parade around like this for ever!

I am at the Orinda Bart Station going to San Francisco on a Sunday. It's for a pre-AGU workshop with the Permafrost Carbon Network. Google it! We study how carbon moves around in the permafrost regions of the Arctic.

We got Chinese food from China Best next to the hippy mountain grocery store and it was so good! All the veggies were fresh and they didn't put a lot of salt in the food.

Jenn & Romy

Just dropping some stuff off at our new house. We may need to filter the water because it has a sulfur smell to it. (update: There is no longer a sulfur smell. It seemed to be the stagnant hot water in the water heater only. Once we flushed that out, the water has no noticeable odor.)
