This is a journal of my vegetable gardens. Skippy was my first dog and he thought the garden was his, even though I did all the work. But Skippy always stood by me and was a great friend. Now Suzie and Charley follow in his footsteps and garden with me. We're located near Boston (USDA zone 6A). I have a community plot, a backyard vegetable garden, fruit trees and berry bushes, chickens and bees. I use sustainable organic methods and do my best to grow all of my family's vegetables myself.

Such a wonderful thing - and I never thought it would happen in my lifetime. I'm ecstactic.

The White House has a pool, right? Because the First Dog would need one. Maybe they could do a renovation and make the pool bone-shaped.

It is exciting! I woke up this morning, and heard Obama's acceptance speech on the radio. I don't know how anyone could hear that and not be moved.

It's good news for America, and it's good news for the world.

I am so happy to be proud of my government. Its such a relief to hear the excitement and positive tone of Europeans and others. Such a relief. There are many celebrations here. A light and hopeful change of tone. Obama has a fantastic ability to inspire people.

I worked as a poll watcher in Tehachapi, Ca. and the polls were packed. People were excited and expressed it; and as they did I could begin to sense the direction the election would take. Even though my county voted only 40% for Obama, that's very good for here.
