I was sitting in my favorite chair at 2:05pm today when an earthquake rolled through the house. A smaller quake rolled through last week, or perhaps I was in the right place today to feel the maximum swell. Phil was in the kitchen preparing our coffee and heard the roof creak, but did not feel the roll. It is like a wave softly rolling through the house. It came up the hill through the front yard, from North to South, and into the living room. I shouted out to Phil that we just had an earthquake. The parrots did not quit screeching, not even for a moment. What’s a little more sway if you’re a bird?

So glad to see your latest post and hope it means that Phil has recovered completely from his accident at last. My money was on the Bri-Bri bark tea cure!

Through reading your blog, I first found out about the Vetever plant and began researching it. What a great anti-erosion resource this appears to be! I see that it's being used all around the world now to create "bio" retention walls. I'm hoping that your plants are thriving on the farm there and that you will be offering some for sale. I could certainly use some on my hillside lot in Hermosa. This year's heavy rainy season took such a toll throughout the country. It's hard to imagine a better "green" solution to combat landslides and erosion here. Thank you for letting us know about this wonderful plant.
