Native yucca blooming

This native yucca is blooming on the corner below the NO Princess Palace.  The roadsides and fields down here are not covered by bluebonnets and indian paint brush in the Spring like up in Central Texas – too far south and not enough rain.  Any blooming flowers down here tend to be close to the bone and diminutive so this large yucca is quite a nice distraction from the norm.

I'm Bad, I'm Nationwide

I am going about 3 different directions at once with this blog so make sure you are coffee’d up and paying attention.

I have a ZUNE  music player from Microsoft that I got back in 2009 and it used to be the cat’s ass.  You know I have never been one to jump on the latest and greatest bandwagon because it makes my brain hurt. Give me comfortable and familiar every time. What was not to like about the ZUNE?  It held 120gb of data and it was built like a brick.  For about a hunnert bucks a year, I had
