As a card carrying half Sicilian, I love basil. It's flavor comes through in almost every Italian dish, even the half of me that's Irish likes it too.

I think you should shoot a few pictures every day. If you're willing to shoot some clunkers, you will be rewarded with a great shot every so often, about ten times more often photographers who play it safe, only shooting pictures when there is a guarantee that you will get some good pictures.

Before I gave up playing it safe, my camera only came out at air shows, and when local hotties were shooting beauty contests pictures for crowds of old farts like me. I'm quite sure that the switch to bikini's put a lot of the prune juice patrol in the ground. But if you can find a better way to go, write to me. I couldn't shoot until the beauty contest entry who had more curves than a roller coaster.

Once I had that snap in in my head that made everything change, I started shooting enough pictures to switch from a four Mega Byte memory card to a thirty two Mega byte card.

I shot this picture while I was doing the dishes. I have a small pot on the shelf over the kitchen sink with a basil plant growing in it. It's where I can grab a small bunch for a dinner. My wife says that cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping are "Man's work. I asked her why once, and she told me that man's work is anything a woman doesn't want to do. An idea that is firmly implanted in the mind of the modern woman. I think men are lucky if they get to hit the pub every so often. Who ever called women, " The weaker species." Was either an idiot, or suicidal.

I can smell the basil from here. A lovely shot of the herb with an intriguing glimpse of what is beyond the window.

"My wife says that cooking, cleaning, and grocery shopping are "Man's work. I asked her why once, and she told me that man's work is anything a woman doesn't want to do." Garrath and I agree on that one (I told him, he agreed) but we both agree that washing dishes is work for a machine, not a person.

Hi,

Wish I had the machine! Our little place was built a hundred years ago when men were five foot three, and women were four foot ten, which my wife is now. The place is so small, that if there is a funny joke on the T.V. we have to laugh he, he, he instead of ha, ha, ha.
