Do my eyes deceive me? Is there a hint of green on one of my lotus tuber's growing tips? (2006)

In the immortal words of Homer J. Simpson, "Woohoo!"
It looks like the tuber is growing. Check your image of the day for the photographic evidence. See how the growing tip is developing a hue of green and appears to be escaping its outer sheath? Call me crazy, but I think that's what biologists, ecologists and plantologists call "growth."
And, yes, those are the heads of matchsticks sticking up through the water. After planting the tuber, the next day I was working the composted manure with a spade and accidently disturbed the buried tuber. In order to prevent another bumble, I placed a bunch of matchsticks in an outline around the tuber so I can steer clear of it when I'm messing around in the tub of old cow poop.
No, nothing's broke. In case you're wondering why there hasn't been much music listed here recently, the reason is two-fold. First, half the time lately, I'm typing in a panic (like now) and don't happen to have anything playing. Second, the other half of the time, when I do have music playing, I've been listening to a collection of songs downloaded from Soul Sides, a web site that posts MP3s of rare, out-of-print and hard-to-find rap, soul, funk and R&B songs. I've been visiting their site for several months now and have an extremely eclectic collection of the music in the aforementioned genres.
Normally, at this point, I would give you a link to Soul Sides as your Link of the Day. But because the author of the web site occasionally uses some profanity, I will refrain from posting the address because it is my goal to keep this blog as family friendly as possible (even though adult issues are sometimes discussed or at least hinted at in these pages). If you are really motivated, though, I'm sure your good friend Google can help you find the site.
