    Thought I'd mention that the role in the service definition has the default vmsize of Small rather than ExtraSmall, so deploying it will burn up an hour of your Small instance time. My preview account only has 25 of these free, while it has 750 hours of ExtraSmall time.

  2. I found 5 morel mushrooms in the back yard that were nummy with brsakfaet. Now going out with the aged relatives and hunting mushrooms that is something I wish I could have done! Yum!
