plant that olive in the laundrymat

had a fab weekend..the sun shone the whole time and the garden was the best place to spend the time. Went to the Leith Market on Sat and bought as Hauf Jaiket called 'overpriced olives' they were nae bad but yes a wee tad dear. However, I feel it important to support the market and the whole idea of an alternative to supermarkets. I also went to the Royal Botanic's Plant Sale and picked up a few wee gems for a small amount of cash. I am even thinking of becoming a member looks like you get to hobnob with the gentry of this fair city whilst improving the brain cells and getting a glass of vino and some'nibbles' Home to over 6% of all known plants, the Garden is acknowledged to be one of the finest in the world where unusual and beautiful plants can be found. The world's largest collection of vireya rhododendrons, originally from the mountains of New Guinea and Borneo, are on display. It is a fab place to chill out and amazing to think it is right here in the city. Was so inspired have bought a ticket to the biggest event on the gardeners calendar
Gardeners Scotland at Ingilston. It looks to be a stotter, changed days when all I was interested in was a ticket to the Reading.Festival..anyway..age does mellow the soul. I now like to enjoy the garden rather than squeezing into a smoky bar trying to order that overpriced pint...but thankfully I still enjoy The Ramones and a good blast of The Ruts.
Here they are with the fantabulous
The Ruts Babylons Burning mp3
I'm listening to more Americana these days but will delve into the archives for some nostalgia for this post. As always these mp3's are for evaluation and research purposes so BUY the music if you like it...but probably like me you may like to buy a CD that is of better quality and has a resale value.Here is a track from%2

hey dick my man thanx for the encouragement about the tunes and blog. It was a great buzz to come back from work to your post. I have a fairly eclectic taste in music and have been rediscovering Pere Ubu, Patti Smith and Ralph Stanley.

Tis a pleasure.
I know from my own blog, how downright nice it is just to have simple confirmation that there is human life out there appreciating your vibe.
I was discussing the merits of having "Comments" area on sites. Some of my fellow bloggers are cool about never having any feedback. Me - I'm a more sensitive soul and consider it only good manners to say 'thanks for the song' or similar.
