We seem to have a crabby nat wreaking havoc with our Internet connection. Give me a day or two and I should be fully online again. Meanwhile, I hope all of you Americans had a fine holiday weekend. Our casual backyard family get-together included burgers, beans, quinoa, tomato salad, chips and dips, and a dessert of mixed berries with creme fraiche and brandy. As on every New Mexican July 4th, a storm blew through, soaked the ground and cleared by dusk. The eggplants loved it. Cheers!
