Good morning to you all on this cool and gray (again) day. The weather people promised some sun sometime this afternoon. If so I will get out and get some gardening done. Whether or no we get that sun, I want to get the smaller plants I brought in over the last very cool nights back outside. I also have a new tomato (German Queen), some impatiens, rosemary, lavender, and oregano to find homes for but not before we get some sun and it dries out. April proved to be dismal with the fewest sunny days ever for the month. I wonder where May is on the lists. We certainly haven't had much sun even with the three 80s and the 90 last week.

Tom Englehardt expresses so much of my attitude toward the 'news' of late. By one definition of insanity (doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result) our leaders are so very insane.

This item from the Pueblo Chieftain also echoes some of my bemusement over the strange weather patterns we have been seeing. With one breath we express amazement over the flooding in the Mississippi valley (and its tributaries) while with the next we take note of the extreme drought in west Texas, Southern Colorado, and western Nebraska. At the same time we watch the pictures of the tornado in Maryland. How often have you heard of tornadoes in Maryland!!!?
