i got this lovely vase a couple of weeks ago when my neighborhood had its annual artwalk. a good friend of mine was participating, and at the end of the day, i got to take the froggy vase home with me! i bought these button mums the next day, and they still look as good as day 1 ... probably because my place is like an icebox.

speaking of iceboxes ... i'm sure everyone has seen the news on cnn. i think it's rather unfortunate. but, i have to say too that it's a high risk activity. and only these three can or could tell what happened. and there's not many mountain climbers around with friends in his/her peer group ... because joe died in an avalanche, miguel disappeared on the descent, and franz developed hypothermia. these people go out seeking something that no one else has seen. they feel unfulfilled without the adventure. and everything has its risk, but i think i'd rather see another day than die cold and alone on a mountain top. and i'm not looking for an argument on the quality of life. please, keep your opinions to yourself. it's not often i rant here. but when someone says they only expected one overnight and to go light & fast, i still believe you should carry gear that could sustain you no matter what. ... in my humble opinion. it just pisses me off!
