Saving the Banana

We love bananas at our house. They are so cheap, so filling, and so healthy, we buy several hands a week. Among other things, we eat them like Popsicles after we have peeled them, cut them into two pieces, and frozen them.

I read this article indicating that bananas are at risk, and that a scientist in Uganda is doing something about it. (More on the banana blight here.)

let's not forget the importance of the banana to humor! when bananas pass away, so, too will the punchline, "Orange you glad I didn't say banana?"

that, my friends, will be a terrible loss.

We have some heavy discussions on this blog.

I know other folks have said this, but I just think the avatar you've chosen is so great.

It really is perfect.

That's a really nice thing to say. Thanks
