Actually, gardening is just one of many distractions for me this time of the year but one that I really do enjoy.The weather finally warmed up in this area about a week ago. We were actually about three weeks behind normal at the time so I have been very busy in the garden since then. Things were going well until an unexpected hailstorm hit yesterday. Knocked many of the blossoms off the fruit trees.That white stuff mixed with the rain made slush everywhere and lasted just long enough to do
SCHOOL SUCKS: . But Education Rocks!

So why would someone who spent 27 years working in the formal education system say such a thing? Because for 27 years I tried, unsuccessfully, to change the "system" from within.

Just this weekend we had to make a decision about our relation
Daylight "Savings" Time?

Has anyone actually saved "time" with daylight savings time?? You take an hour off one end and add it to the other; so where does time savings come into this? Time wasted, on the other hand, is millions of people-hours used twice a year (an average of 15 minutes per household) changing clocks back and forth. What was the reason for starting this nonsense in March of 1918? It was supposed to be "energy" savings to conserve fuel during WWI. Back then, of course, many rural localities didn'
