My NatureMill electric composting machine is working pretty well so far, about two weeks in. It turned the little sawdust pellets to humus within a day and it eats my Wendy's leftovers with much less digestion problems than I can. I started putting turds in there yesterday, so we'll see how it does its scheise routine.
I bought some Miracle Berry pills recently, but haven't had a chance to try them out. I'll probably go to the grocery in a day or two, and I'll get some grapefruit and lemon and see how they taste. They were NOT cheap, so I hope they are at least interesting.
My family in Baton Rouge is only partially with power, after a little over a week. Generators abound, though, so all is not lost. I keep up with BR local news television online and it's sometimes good news, sometimes bad. I actually used to enjoy riding storms out when I lived there, but maybe not that one.
Nothing much else going on here.
