Curses! Trader Joe outlets in Michigan don't sell liquor! Dang. I was really looking forward to trying their Jail House Gin.

The garden is in full swing. We snagged over $100 worth of strawberries, with a few quarts still left in the tank. The peas were really strong this year, too. I'm not sure why. I planted them in a raised bed, with leaf mold and compost, using tomato cages for the trellising. I'm not sure what happened, but man, we got we over 1,000 pods out of a 3' x 6' area.

"Pope Francis approves a revision of his comments on invalid marriages." I'm glad he did that, but I honestly don't get it. Does the press just amplify every poorly-considered utterance or does he simply make a lot of poorly-considered utterances? I really don't know the answer, but he seems to shoot from the hip a lot. A whole lot, but again, maybe it's just the press repeating his words more than they have other popes. I honestly don't know.
