what. it's a picture of chocolate, back off.

i realize my first pic may not be exactly the kind of picture you were expecting me to take of the wilds of iowa. i've got more (the vast majority of them not significantly wilder than this, but whatever), and i'll put them up slowly over the next few weeks when i can. at least, that's the plan, especially if i go mushroom hunting for morels OMGSOGOOD. plus, 'shrooms are nicely graphic. come to think of it, a yellow morel picture would be a lovely counterpoint to the cave background on this page. hm. HMMMM.

anyway, the lack of pictures... see... i got badly sidetracked by life complications that are both grindingly boring and eating up ALL of my time with hectic and stress. life. don't talk to me about life. not important, moving on.

i'm re-working all my bloginess, and part of the re-organization idea is to keep more pictures here, and do more pointless weekend traveling (price of gas be damned; we're talking about my sanity, here!) to blog about and show off here. eventually, i'll find someplace i have to run away to, and it'll be more fun than here. suggestions are always welcome.

when it stops being more fun than here, i'll start the whole tawdry process all over again. *grin*

(oh, the doom rooster? that was actually taken in arkansas. wiiiiiith the nifty fuji-pix camera i got here. yay!)

those little tykes seem to grow everywhere! i knew they were all over the midwest and south, but it never occured to me they'd pop up in alaska.

i never had morels until i moved here. people around here pick them and sell them in farmer's markets, roadside stands, stuff like that. i never find enough to do that (and i do have a lot of secret places to find them), but i find plenty of them to eat.

problem is, i find plenty of ticks, too. gweh.

thanks for the tip. i will live with the comforting knowledge that, where ever i may land, morels will follow mayapples. *grin*

Try Alaska around the Fairbanks area if you like Morels. If an area there has had a fire the year before, there is a good chance that there be a lot of Morels the next year. A lot of people will pick them and make bank selling them.
