This empty, tiny bird’s nest was found while we were harvesting grapes at the Ranch.
I thought at first it was a hummingbird’s nest, but theirs are smaller and much neater.
So it must’ve belonged to a house wren. Thought you’d like to see it!
your amigo, Diego

There’s only one chile pepper museum in the entire world that I can find and it’s in Maieraˋ, Italy: “Museo del Pepperoncino.”
Much as I like Italian food, we really do need a chile museum here in America. Crowd funding, anyone?
Chili and chocolate at the museum! Bueno!
you can make sun tea instantly.
the cows around here are giving evaporated milk.
guys fishing at the river report the catfish are already fried.
you can use your seatbelt as a branding iron.
we had folks stop at the farm stand to buy fresh tomatoes, and by the time they got them home, they were sun-dried.
Stay cool, amigos. Diego
