Giant Tomato.....PLANT!!

USA | Thursday, 21 May 2009 | Views [3614] | Comments [1]

I don't know about you, but I never realized a cherry tomato plant could grow this tall.  We didn't give it anything special just watered and moved it inside due to the high winds on the balcony. If you check the photo gallery you'll notice that the ... Read more >

Where was I?

Right...the end of the cave and into the Tropical Orchards.  Where we saw a variety of fruits being grown.  That would have to be the first time I saw actual pineapples growing! (The pineapple in my old office doesn't count since it was never this far ... Read more >

USA | Saturday, 9 May 2009 | Views [570] | Comments [4]

I was driving home the other day and I noticed this on the side of the road... I cannot say I've ever seen one cow being lead to its next location.  The cow was well behaved with the cars driving by.  You would think it was just out for a walk.  Its ... Read more >

Brandon and I found a great Star Wars sale the other day!  I never imagined I'd find a husband who likes action figures and sci-fi collectibles almost as much as I do!  :)  Found some more action figures to add to our collection, a Gamorrean Guard (the ... Read more >
