    You know that this thing will probably won't be alive in a week. One of the talents Michelle lacks is a green thumb. I know I would be surprised too since she can pretty much do anything.

    Sorry it's a small bowl, we gave the rest to AIG and they quickly handed us back just the sham they kept the rock.
