Baby Goliath is one year old

If I have any regular readers left (maybe a rellie or two ... maybe?), you may remember when we bought a little baby giant sequoia tree on our trip to Sequoia National Park last year.

This is baby Goliath in September of 2012:

And here he is one year later, October 2013:

He won't be terrorizing the neighbourhood from his pot for some time yet, but he sure grew!  The lady at the gift shop said he would double his size every year for the first few years.  He hasn't gained too much in height, but he sure is sprawling outwards a lot.  A well-fed, bouncing baby Giant Sequoia.  Be sure to check back next year for updates ...

Pumpkin Spice M&Ms

Ha, my blog is turning into an M&M review blog.  Good thing they bring out new flavours as often as they do or the internet might never hear from me!  I do have other things on the go other than eating chocolate, but I have been a lazy blogger lately.

Pumpkin Spice M&M's - another good one!  Very vague pumpkin flavour with cinnamon and spices.  Nice and chocolatey, this one is a milk chocolate one.

They have another Halloween flavour out, Candy Corn White Chocolate M&Ms, but I didn't try that one.  It sounded a bit strange, even for someone like me who likes to try all the new stuff.  If I change my mind I'll report back.
