As we apparently have less the 5 years to live according to this and many other sources( http://www.viewzone.com/endtime.html), I'm anxious to get started as I do not want to leave this life without being able to proudly proclaim, "I grew peas!".
Seriously though, after reading about 2012, regardless whether something is going to happen or not, it serves as a reminder that life is short, precious, and not to be squandered. To that end, I consider our little commune time well spent and am glad we're a part of it.
On a different note, we want to have everyone over soon for a little get together. Additionally, we're planning the infamous "LOTR extended edition 14 hour marathon/sleepover". Imagine the cheers that will erupt when the final credit from Return of the King scrolls past the screen
Talk to you soon,
