The day I chose the name peapod I had spent the entire day in my garden shelling peas!! So I had peapods on the brain. I could have used greenfingers I suppose. Only in Victoria can you harvest peas this time of year, we even have a different climate zone from the rest of the island.

I just returned from starbucks, I have a ponder that maybe someone can answer for me. The mermaid lady that they use for their logo does anyone know where and how it orginated? No one at starbucks seems to able to answer this question.

Did not the Pequod in Moby Dick have a mermaid figure craved on it's bow. There was also a member of the crew called starbuck. I wonder if the founder was a fan of moby Dick? I think I need to get a life.
