It's been a blast

I've been thinking on how to word this for a long time. I've thought of a thousand things to say and a thousand things I shouldn't say, and in the end I'm left improvising. So to put it right out there, it's time I move on from these forums. I want to thank each and every one of you for making these past two and a half years fantastic. I'm glad to have had the opportunity to know everyone here. With that said, I'm not leaving immediately. I'll be sticking around for another week to ti

Has freedom gone too far?

On the surface, even a good ways beneath the surface, freedom is a good thing. Freedom from tyranny, freedom from oppression, freedom from strife, freedom from pain, freedom from hunger. The list goes on. But at what point have we taken it too far? I'm just gonna look at three very general types of freedom that I think in one way or another have been or are close to being taken too far. And before I begin let me just say, at no point in here am I targeting anyone or blaming anyone. This is

A New Season

A new year, a new season, a new batch of salsa. It's not the biggest batch, but it's the first, and for such a small amount it sure packs a lot of flavor. Each of those jars is 1 pint.

Not far off now

What do you see here? Is it the work of a madman? Plants in cups? Nature taking every opportunity it can to grow? I'll tell you what I see. I see great red tomatoes, grand green bell peppers, banana peppers, and jalapenos. I see salsa! And it's coming. Very soon now, very soon indeed! -----

Salsastrings

I'm making this a blog instead of status because pictures, also might be a bit longer than I want a status to be.   So for anyone interested, I just spent the last 4-5 hours making the last batch of salsa for the summer, and I'm just too proud of it to not show it off. So here's a couple pics of it still in the pot:   Made over 2 and a half gallons when it was all done and jarred up!

Call it what it is

I'd like to say how much these forums have really helped me out. All of you, all my friends, whether I actually have you friended on here or not, you give me something to look forward to each day. And it's not only that, but when I get on here, whatever mood I'm in, I only show my happier side. When I talk as if I'm smiling, that actually makes me smile and brightens my mood almost all the way up to what I'm showing.   I'm not actually as happy and carefree as I like to appear on here.

My first completed pony drawing

So here it is, my first pony drawing I actually finished!   I drew most it based off just knowing the body shape, proportions, and whatnot. For the mane and tail though, I pulled up a picture and tried to get it about right from that, so it's not actually 100% original. But it's the first one I've actually finished, so a good starting point!   Anyway here it is, don't hold back, tell me how bad it is.
